Meet our Guest Designer & Grand Prize Drawing!

We are THRILLED to have Carolyn Peeler from Melissa Frances join our Birthday Bash! Carolyn has mixed in a bit of new Melissa Frances in her creations.....(we are going to tease you a bit, the new collection will be shipping in the next couple weeks!)

A lover and collector of all things vintage, sparkly and pretty, Carolyn loves to rummage through antique shops and flea markets to find that perfect treasure.

Carolyn's lifelong love of crafts lead her to become involved professionally in the scrapbooking industry. She has been on the Chatterbox Design Team; a product designer for Rusty Pickle and for the past five years has been employed as the Senior Creative Director at Melissa Frances. It is her dream job and between designing product and teaching at home and abroad, she's one busy girl!

In addition to being published in the industry's leading magazines and Idea Books, she is a contributing writer for the Canadian Scrapbooker magazine and has written articles for Legacy and Woman's Day. She and her police officer husband live with their two Bichon Frise puppies in Vancouver, Canada.

She invites you to take a peek into her world by visiting her blog... www.carolynpeeler.typepad.com
