Announcing our first Guest Design Team!

We are thrilled to announce our Guest Design Team for September - December 2010!!

We were overwhelmed by the response we received and all the talented scrappers who applied.  We wish we could have each and every one of you on our team!   Alas, we could only pick eight this time around.... and what a tough choice it was for us!!

After we finally made it through all the applications, we picked eight amazing artists that we hope will inspire you as much as they inspire us.  So without further ado our Guest Design Team is......

Cindy is a 4th & 5th Grade teacher who is currently the stay-at-home Mom of handsome little Trevor.  Wife of Steve, Cindy loves to dream up new recipes and is a master at putting multiple photos on one layout.... her current record is 14!! Cindy resides in sunny California and will be here to inspire you during September.  Want to get a peek at Cindy's fabulous work?  Go check out her gallery and leave her some love!

Diana is definitely no stranger around here at Flamingo Scraps! Graphic Designer by trade and profession, Diana is the founder of Sketchy Thursdays, one of our favorite blogs and is one of our favorite artists!  Diana resides in New York (the state, not the City!) and will be here to inspire you during October. To see Diana's gorgeous artwork, go check out her blog and swing by Sketchy Thursdays to play along with her fantastic weekly sketch challenge!

Genie is a part-time portrait photographer, happily married Wife, Mom to two adorable little girls and, rumor has it, she has the best cheesecakes in town.  (We want to taste test please!!)  Genie resides in Michigan and will be here to inspire you during October. What are you waiting for?!  Go check out Genie's blog and gallery to check out her fabulous work!

Janet is a retired medial laboratory technologist, Mom of three adults and is impatiently waiting for one of them to hurry up and give her a grandbaby to spoil & scrap about!  Janet was born, raised in and never left St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada and will be here to inspire you during December. Janet's super cute blog showcases her beautiful work and you can also catch up with her over on Facebook.

Jill is Mom of cutie Abigail, Wife of Dean and creator of beautiful scrappy stuff!  When Jill isn't spending time with Dean and Abigail or scrapping, she's playing soccer, cycling, taking photos and working in IM/IT (even though she's trained personal trainer and nutritionist!).  Jill also hails from Ontario, Canada and will be here to inspire you during September.  Want to see one of the cutest blogs around with all kinds of scrappy inspiration?!  Go check out Jill's blog!!

One of Jolaine's favorite quotes is "The way to love life is to love many things"... which she does!!  Home decor, reading, cooking, event planning, anything crafty and, of course, scrapbooking... Jolaine loves them all!  Jolaine was born in the Domincan Republic and now resides in upstate New York with her husband and two children, Emily and Dylan.  Jolaine will be here to inspire you during the month of November and has many beautiful scrappy things over on her blog (so go check it out)!

Tiffany is a happily married momma to a really cute 3-year old Mateo and is living the good life in beautiful San Diego, California.  Orginally from a small town outside Las Vegas, Tiffany dreams of owning her own restaurant someday!  Tiffany will be here to inspire you during December and in the meantime, you can find her gorgeous work on youtube, her blog/gallery and over on Facebook!

And last, but certainly not least....

Tonya (a.k.a. Psycho Mom) is happily married to her high school sweetheart and has two teenagers, Brittany and Brighton!  When she is not volunteering her time for not-for-profit kid oriented organizations, she's hard at work as a Web Designer for the University of Florida Foundation.  Tonya recently guest blogged for us, sharing her fabulous Steampunk Debutante album and will be here to inspire you during November.  Make sure you go check out her website and catch up with her on youtube to check out her fabulous work!

So that's our fabulously talented guest design team and we couldn't be more happy!!! So go check out their blogs, galleries and be inspired... we are!!! 

Stay tuned for September 1st, when we will introduce our first two guest design team members for the month of September, Cindy and Jill, in more detail.
