Hello Everyone!

Welcome to the first reveal of our new Design Team whom you have already met in our last post. Now you get to see all of their work too :D

First I am sure you want to know who the sponsor is and what the prize is.

Here is a little about them.

'I decided to post a little about me as I find it is nice to put a face to the name on the internet!
My name is Jodie .
I am married and have 5 beautiful children, Skye, Isabella, Desiree, Sean, and Michael. 
Add a dog a cat and a hubby to that .....a housefull!

I have been designing graphics for 9 years, mostly for those who digitize, 
and now venturing into this new idea of digi stamps. 
I love to draw and love to see were my designs go and how they are used. 
I find making people smile with my graphics very rewarding!

For many many years I drew mostly cutesy kids graphics, alot of which you’ll find here.
But my latest passion is my cranky old boots....
Stella ,Gus, Margaret and the Gals who came after them.
I just LOVE to create them and they seem to be a favorite!

What else can I say? 
The name Bugaboo did I come up with it? 
Well...... Bugaboo as that is a nickname i have for my kids sometimes.
I live in Saskatchewan, Canada. 
I enjoy reading V.C Andrews, love anything to do with crafts (I just wish I had the time to do them!) 

I love to draw (obviously) write poems, LOVE Bon Jovi, 
and am in the middle of writing a kids book I would love to see published one day 
Anyhow, that’s a bit about me....Enjoy your stay! And thanks for visiting!
I always love to hear from you!


The prize is.

So we were all given the choice of digi stamps to work with, such fun!

Here is the sketch, please note that our sketches are card sketches but feel free to do with them what you want, cards, tags, art journal pages or layouts.. turn it, twist it.. can't wait to see what you do with this sketch!!

Here is what our fabulous new Design Team came up with to inspire you.

We hope that we have inspired you to want to play along and we look forward to seeing your creations linked to our inlinkz on the left hand side.

Till next time - Happy Stamping!
