The Pink Elephant - TPE64

Thank You all for a fabulous week, we hope you enjoy 
joining us as much as we enjoy having you!!


We have quite a bit of news to share with you all!!
This week marks the end of a term, the beginning of a term, which along with that
comes a few farewells and a Hello!!

As far as farewells go...I am sad to say that one of our wonderful original members  
Ann Cutts
is saying goodbye this term.  To me Ann is our Sweet Ann....always ready to lend some wise and wonderful advice, along with lots of love and care!!  I also refer to Ann as our "Comment Queen", if you have ever entered a TPE challenge then it is almost certain that Sweet Ann has hopped onto your blog and left a kind word of encouragement.  Ann was one of the pioneers of TPE and without her it would not have been the same.  I remember around this time last year, she was putting together a tutorial for our Tutorial Tuesdays and she was so excited about finding Pink Elephant Wine to go along with her Wine Glass tags, unfortunately the delivery boy ended up bringing the wrong wine!! Boo hoo!!
Ann sure was excited and put a smile on all our faces while announcing what she had found!!
Now I admit, I tried to change her mind, hee hee, but she has recently started a new career that keeps her very busy! I totally respect and support her decision, but the doors are certainly open for her to
pop back in and visit us anytime she likes!!
Thank You Sweet Ann for everything you have done to help make
The Pink Elephant what it is today!!
We love you and you will always be apart of our TPE family!!

We are also saying goodbye to Frances Byrne this week.
Frances has been with us for almost a year and she will be missed!!
Frances we wish you all the best in all your are no doubt Super Duper talented!! 
Your designs have been a great addition to our team through your time here!!
Your sketch designs are appreciated and your friendship cherished!!
Thank You very for you have brought to TPE!!!

This week also marks the end of a term for Kellie Winnell, Kristy Young and Cindy Haffner.
Thank you all 3 for blessing TPE for the past 3 months with your fabulous talent and wonderful friendships!!
Kellie and Kristy - Congrats on all your fun new craft ventures!! Be sure to keep an eye on these 2 they have some fabulous stuff going on down-under!! hee hee!!
Cindy - We all admire your work and wish you all the best!!
Big huge hugs to each of you!!

Ready for some happy news???

Well, I am very very excited to tell you that the sensationally talented and beyond sweet  
Silvia Rodriguez
 is joining us as a full time TPE Design Team Member!!! Woo hoo!!!
I have been in awe of Silvia's creations for quite some time now.  In fact, I actually emailed her this past Fall to ask her if she like to join us, but my email got lost in cyber space, but while chatting a little later...we arranged for her to join this term as our new design team member!! Now although my Granny's name is Sylvia and I do think that name is beautiful, you will find that Silvia herself and her designs are even more beautiful!!
Thank You Silvia for joining the TPE family!!!
Welcome Hugs and Love!!

Now are you ready to see what the DT has in store for you this week?!?!
We have a few out this week, but I promise you will see them all right here next week!!
