releases, freebies every Mondays at the artist's blog , and
challenges every Thursdays at the DT Blog .

Woo Hoo ... Thanks Melissa!!


Well, I don't really know where to start and I don't really even
want to type it because then that would make it really real!!
I am gonna keep this short and sweet, since I don't want to cry...Robin
has decided it is time to move on from TPE!!
She and I started this blog together in Feb of 2009.
This time later that year, she ended up returning
to work after 12 years of being a SAHM.
She was an instant success and has moved up "the ladder" very quickly!!
Along with promotions...she has had less and less time to spend with family and
crafting, so one has to go (for now) and since there is NO WAY she'd even consider
picking crafting over her family...Crafting it is!! It is difficult running a home,
working a full time job and still finding time to meet deadlines!!
Now she isn't leaving stamping completely, you can still see her fabulous
cards and creations on her blog, only it will be when she wants to or has a free
moment from her teenage and preteen daughter's activities!!
In other words...for fun, instead of a "have to" situation!!
Robin has been in the Design team business and held positions in the
design world for 10's time for a break!!

Robin, you are a great friend!! I feel very blessed to call you my friend!
You have inspired me and I have learned so much from you!!
Thank You for entering into this "Pink" adventure with me a little over a year ago!!
Without you there would be no TPE!! The Pink Elephant will always be here for
you...we are family and I am just gonna pretend you are on vacation!! Hee hee!
Love ya my friend!!
Big Huge Pink Hugs!!!

OMG, Hannah! I love the way you colored the image. It is just perfect!! Love the buttons, and the card layout is awesome. Sorry I couldn't wait to see your card on your blog to write you a comment.
