Fly Away Celebration

Tonight I went to a  farewell party for a very special young friend whom I have know since she was born.  She is leaving tomorrow morning to drive all the way across the country to begin attending BYU, and start a brand new chapter in her life... Times like this come to each of us, and it is a time to reflect and celebrate new beginnings, yet cherishing the relationships that will last a long, long time....
 And so it is with my beloved HoneyBees... The time has come for the HoneyBees to Fly Away from the Hive over at BettyBee's Buzz.  I am sad, yet happy at the same time.  They all have achieved such success, that I am very excited for each of them!   I have chosen a familiar theme for my party centerpiece to honor them.  

The tutorial on how to create the centerpiece is over on BettyBee's Buzz...

Inside the card.
I am so very honored to have had the opportunity to be the Queen Bee to these amazing designers, and mostly my friends.  Most of them have served on other design teams with me, and continue to work very hard throughout the industry.   You will see their work in lots of places!!
I have listed a "tribute" to each of these amazing ladies on the blog.  I do hope you will stop over and leave some "Honey" for these sweeties!!

What will I be doing?
Oh, I'll be staying busy, too.  I will contiue to host Cricuteers in Paradise crops, and be a Tutorial Artist for Digital Delights, but am also very excited to be partnering with Wanda, and Kathy from PaperPhenomenon. to start a brand new company called WonderWorks Crops!  This is something new to the industry, and we are so thrilled to bring it to you. 
Please pop over to check out our first project!  This is a CROP only deal... you have to come see us to get the aweome Haunted Chateau!  OR invite us to come to you!!  We travel :)

 I know I will always be close to these ladies, because they aren't just a Design Team... they are my friends, my sisters that I chose... and I love them...
Happy Creating~
(We'll have one last post on Wednesday to show what the HoneyBees made for the Party!!!  One last Showcase!!!  We hope you will come by and leave them some honey :)
