MSW 6x6 & LGS 8x8 Farewell LOs

As I bid goodbye to 2012,
I made a delicate and tough decision
to bid adieu to (3) of my designer posts.

I'm saying goodbye to my:
- post as DT, FB page and group manager of Sketches4All;
- post as Layout designer of My Sketch World; and
- post as Team A permanent designer of Let's Get Sketchy . . .

It was a tough choice as I've grown to love these
(3) families of international scrapbooking friends and communities.
I'll still be amongst them but no longer
doing my set task and contributions to these groups.

Here are a glimpse of my farewell LOs to:

"My Sketch World" DT family

Ginni Gass swapped a 6x6 LO with me for my above created LO of her.
Here's her 6x6 LO of me:

any of my former classmates this year,
may it be with my High School or College classmates.

I'm sure everyone is up and about
in Holiday Spirits. . .  LOL

Anyway, here are photos of
my baked goods . . .
taken the best way I can . . .

My chocolate crinkles

My Rhum Cherry Brownies
(some with walnuts and some without . . .
