Welcome January's Guest Designer

Our New Year's first guest designer is the lovely and talented Kim Richardson!  Please join me in giving her a warm welcome this chilly January. 

Here's what she has to say:
Hi there! My name is Kim and I was born and rasied in Minneapolis MN.   I currently live near Grand Rapids MN in a town of about 300 people!  I'm a coffee drinkin' city girl in the country living the simple life!  I've been scrapping for over 10 years and making cards for around 5 years. My family is my joy and give me so many creative ideas. They are my scrapbooking victims! When my house is quiet and my kids are napping, you can most likely find me in my scrap room.
I'm so excited to be a guest DT member for the month of Jan! Thank you H2H! I can't wait to see everyone's creations!

I've gotten a sneak peek at some of her creations for our January challenges, and you are going to be so inspired!  Just click on her name, above, to go see what she's up to right now.  See you back on Monday for our first challenge of the new year!

Also, in case you're wondering, our Top Chicks each month are invited to come back as Guest DT in a future month.  YOU could be our next Guest DT!
