ric#44 - Zuhair Murad

Good morning!!  Before we get to the winners, I have some bittersweet news- Laura Bassen has decided to step down from the team.  She was one of the girls who helped me get the Runway challenge off of the ground almost two years ago, and she is such a talented, awesome, incredible friend!  I am so excited for Laura as she continues in her crafty career, and I speak on behalf of the whole team when I say how much we will miss her contributions!! Best of luck, Laura! :)

When one teammate leaves, a new one must come in, right?  I will be introducing you to the newest DT member at our next challenge on October 1st!  You are going to LOVE her!

(btw, if you would also like to be on our team, we'll be holding a public DT call for at least one spot in the coming months.  Stay tuned!)

One more bit of news (today's a big day, huh?!)- Aga has returned from her maternity leave, and we are so happy to have her joining us today! Make sure to leave her some love on her blog!

Our Fabulous Fashionistas are:
Michelle W
Cris G
Leigh Penner
(there was a tie, so we included a fourth Fashionista)


And the Queen of Couture, winner of the $15 gift card to Simon Says Stamp is:


Congrats, ladies! Tyra, please email me (ourchangeofart@gmail.com) to claim your prize!


You won't believe today's guest.  She has a rockin' resume, and her work is always so well-designed and impeccably executed.  If you don't know her already, you had better go to her blog to see more- you'll be glad you did!  The guest designer for this challenge is...

Hey everyone, Betsy Veldman here.  I'm excited to be joining you for the Runway Inspired Challenge this week!  Just a little about me...I'm a small town girl, married to Jeff, and we have three children ages 12, 10, and 6.  Card making and stamping has become a full-time job for me and I feel blessed to be able to work from home doing what I love.  Right now I design for Papertrey Ink, Pink Paislee, in addition to being one of the Go-to Gals for Paper Crafts magazine.  When I'm not creating little paper treasures I enjoy biking, swimming, sewing, and just hanging out with my family. Thanks for having me, Jennifer...you always pick out the most inspiring images and I had a great time playing along!
