Our New Colour Challenge and an Introduction!

February 07, 2011

Hi Magnolia Friends!

Seems like a long time since I have spoken to you. I guess lots has happened between then and now.

We have a new Design Team Member today and I would like to introduce her to you all.
We are all thrilled to have Paola Levi with us and I know you will love her work!!!
With out further ado I will let Paola tell you about herself:
"Hi my name is Paola Levi, my middle name starts with an A and my initials spell PAL which I have always thought was great since then I could be the Pal of everyone LOL.
I'm married to a wonderfully patient and indulgent guy who totally gets me and my obsession. We have four great children, our eldest is about to embark on his own future with a great girl that he has been dating for almost nine years, so I will soon have another daughter to get hooked on paper crafting.
I have had a passion for paper crafting for the past five years that began with scrapbooking and just evolved into my love of all things Magnolia.
We live in South Africa and I have always thought that Africa seems to always be a little behind the times, so I am so happy to be a part of a team that is right on track with the times and hope to help inspire some of the crafters this side of the globe to get up to date and fall in love with these darling little characters.
I am so pleased to have been chosen to work on the design team as this has been a dream of mine since I accidentally started blogging and discovered all the uber talented bloggers on the www.
Thanks so much Diana for this wonderful opportunity, I look forward to being an integral part of the team."
I am sure you will all find Paola's work exciting and be watching for her cards.
