Here is Amy's announcement as posted in the Scrap-Friendzy forum:
"Honestly, this is the hardest announcement I have ever made. It's been no secret that I have been quite MIA around here lately. I have been going back to school full time and on top of a job, a photography business, and my busy kiddos- scrapping has unfortunately had to take a back burner. Not just scrapping, Scrap-Friendzy.
Because of this, Mama and I have been forced to make a tough decision:
I am so sorry to say, we are closing SF.
At this point, we are not at a place in our life to devote the time and energy that it takes to maintain a site. Honestly, we couldn't have made it this far without the wonderful DT we've had through the years. We have been struggling with this decision for months and have finally come to the realization that this is what is best for our family. I am so sorry and I'm so sad to have to tell you this. You girlz have been like family for so long and I hope that we can keep in touch. If anyone is interested in taking over SF and keeping it going, please email me and I will give you more information on maintaining things.
We struggled with the decision of trying to keep things going through December, but with the holidays and everyone being so busy, we thought it would be best to just close now. Again, I'm so sorry to announce this, but I hope you all understand."
I absolutely understand their decision, and I want to thank Amy and Cheryl for giving me the opportunity to be on their design team. I have met so many wonderful scrappy friends at Scrap-Friendzy and I am going to miss them!
So without further ado, I want to share the layout that I was going to use for a challenge on Friday:
The photo I used I took during our first snow-fall! I was going to challenge participants to use ribbon on their layouts!!
I hope you all have a happy Wednesday. The weather here today is very warm for this time of the year! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!
