Ok, so these ladies are super talented and I hope they inspire you as much as they do me. I ended up making the team a little larger then I had expected, but I think it will be totally worth it for everyone. There are 6 photographers and 4 scrappers on the team. I'll introduce you to the photographers first...

So, that is my creative team! :) We have big things planned for the coming months. I am really excited about finally being able to show the overlays used for scrapping, and other crafty projects. They really are versatile, and I think you'll love this next pirate themed set. It is actually FINISHED, and I'll be releasing it today! The Scrapping team members have already played with the set, and you are going to be SO impressed with they're layouts. I'm SO anxious to share them, so I'll be back in little over an hour with the team's work as well as my own photos that inspired the new overlay set...
.... and with that, for some odd reason I am soo nervous about pushing the "publish button!" :) here goes...
