Today's the day!!  We are so pleased to announce our very first design team!!

This was probably the hardest scrap-related thing we have ever had to do.  The submissions were unbelievable and we had such a hard time deciding.  What an incredible journey we had from blog to blog and I beg each of you that didn't make it this time to try out again next time as we can only have a small number of designers and we could have easily added another 50 of you to the team!

But, decide we did, and here is our very talented list of ladies in alphabetical order!  Look to this blog over the month of January for more information about each one of them!
Camilla Ekman
Eila Sandberg 
Irene Tan
Irina Gershak
Iris Babao Uy
Jennifer Snyder
Joyce Lawrence
Kelly Foster
Lisa Gregory
Mona Pendleton
Patter Cross
Svetlana Austin
Vibeke Harila

And I also would like to introduce you first to Erin Blegen who will not only be on the DT, but also in charge of marketing and our wonderfully organized DT coordinator, Valerie Serfozo.

Welcome to Blue Fern Studios, ladies!!!
