Big Changes at DTC!!

Hello Decorate to Celebrate Fans!! We have some exciting changes in store for our challenge blog, starting with the next challenge (September 17th). Instead of having a theme, every challenge from now on will be ANYTHING GOES!! Even the Design Team will be making any projects they want!! There will be one rule - if you make cards, they must be a box card or have a 3D cut-out on it. Otherwise, it's totally up to you what you create!!

The prizes will vary from stamps to cut-outs to mini-albums... You can use your projects from other challenges and enter up to three times. We hope this will give everyone a chance to join in the fun and show us your talent!!

We would love to add you to our Design Team!! If you are interested in joining us next year, please send Rhonda an email at: rhondashappens(at)gmail(dot)com with your name and blog address so she can hop over and take a look at your work. You can apply now and she will pick six new members and get in touch with you by the end of the month or the end of October, depending on the entries. Commitment will be for at least three months and then there will be another DT call to give everyone a chance. It's that simple!! 

Also, it is with great sadness that I have decided to step down as co-hostess with Rhonda. I will definitely be entering every challenge though :) Long-time design team member and challenge sponsor Norma of Pink Bling Crafter will be taking over co-hosting duties. Rhonda and Norma will make an amazing team!!

So we hope you will join in with our September 17th challenge of ANYTHING GOES!!
