Taking a break...

 Hi everyone, Laurel here. I know it's been awhile. I have to thank all of you for supporting this challenge over the years. I had to step back awhile ago due to circumstances in my life and I am so grateful for Danni for all of her hard work in keeping this running and of course the team for consistently showing up with amazing creations. 

I had full intentions on coming back in the summer as you may have noticed some cards from me. But again life happened, some not so good and some good that I just couldn't. 

Well the time has come... Danni needs to step back and I am not ready to take over so we are not saying goodbye just yet. We are hoping it is a for now. 

Thank you again for your support, the team for being amazing and Danni for being there for me!
