Hi all,

I can't believe I haven't mentioned this yet. I am retiring from MellyBird Designs and my stop at CatScrap. My designs are 50% off until the end of May. Be sure to pick up anything before then! Thank you for your continued support. I will still post on this blog as I am still designing.

... and I want the WHOLE world to know it!!!

Isn't it great when you can finally share something that has been "hush, hush" for so long? Today is THAT day for me. What's the news you say? BIG news... get ready, WAIT, are you a scrapbooker? If not, you probably won't recognize this news as being as ginormous as it is. If you are a scrapbooker, then feel free to jump with joy along with me. Echo Park announced today that they have started a sister company called Carta Bella. Whoohoo, more eye candy for the world to share!

Now why am I personally so excited? Well, I am blessed to be one of their designers! Not even kidding, it's true :) It has been months and months in the making and I'm still pinching myself. Carina Gardner is the Creative Director (I am constantly amazed by Carina's talent, vision, and productivity). The other designers include Deena Rutter (I still drool over her designs) and Samantha Walker (she's an Illustrator wizard, I tell ya!). The Director of Sales is Lindsay Moore. Now I'm kind of new to the whole business side of the paper scrapbooking world. Lately, I've been watching Youtube videos of CHA January 2012. I was watching a segment recently where Lindsay was being interviewed. His personality made me smile. So imagine my surprise and delight when I found out that he is part of Carta Bella. It is a Small, Small World!

Please check out the Carta Bella website and blog. Be sure to "like" it on Facebook and follow along on twitter.... contests are a-brewing and you don't want to miss your chance!

In the next few months, you'll start to see my work on the Carta Bella site... stay tuned.

I can't wait to share this journey with you!!! As always, thanks for reading :)
