Goodbye and Good Luck!

Image by

Once again, I find myself drafting a "Goodbye" post and I wanted to look back and see what I'd written in the past. 

I came across this post here "Musings, news and a Counterfeit Kit Challenge Master Forger Design Team Call – July to December 2021" and realised that every single word I wrote about what this team means to me is STILL true today. 

Who we are, what we do round here, what we want to offer the scrapbooking community, and how we want it to look to the outside world. 

We are truly a low-key challenge community. We are still gentle and still a little bit "old school" (basing our posts on the blog), and we still stay true to our core mission of creating kits from our own stash and making pages and projects in the hope that our community is inspired to do the same! 

The team at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge is STILL friendly, fun and talented and I'm STILL grateful to have them as my crafting buddies! And it's STILL sad to have to say goodbye to anyone on the team. 

So, again, it is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to the very talented Juliet. We already miss her a lot and hope that she hangs around in the community to make us smile with her layouts and creations! 

A very heartfelt thank you Juliet for being such a fabulous member of our happy team!

Which brings me to a happier part of this post:
