Tina McDonald
Julianne McKenna-DeLumen

In the final round these ladies will be sent Spellbinders™ Paper Arts product and asked to create an assignment. They will submit an essay of approximately 500 words, sharing a little about themselves personally and as a designer. This will be due on February 18.

How fun will this next round be?! It will be neat to see what we all end up making with the same product...and, uh, just a smidge intense!

Since we can't show you our projects that we have made for the first two rounds yet, I'll leave with this card. It was my "reject" card for the second round. There was just something about it that wasn't making me happy, so at the last minute I made a second one. I ended up loving the second, I did something unique with it that I haven't seen anyone else do...can't wait to show it to you all some day.

I'm off to CHA and hopefully a sunny Los Angeles. Love hanging out with old friends and meeting many whom I only know online.
