One Last Hurrah!

Pick up Spring Brings Hope HERE

For the past month or so, I have been organizing a charity kit that my dear creative team member Renee initiated. Her son attends preschool and her son's teacher's daughter (Jenna) was diagnosed with Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder

Here is Jenna's story:
Jenna received a liver transplant in 1997 when she was just 7 years old. The transplant was a success and her health had been good. She graduated from Apollo High School in the spring of 2009 and just finished her first successful semester of college at Bemidji State University, in Minnesota. When she came home for Christmas break this December, she showed her parents 2 huge lumps on her body. Jenna was quickly admitted to the University of Minnesota Medical Center where their greatest fear became a reality and Jenna was diagnosed with Post Transplant Lymphoproliferative Disorder, a form of cancer caused by the anti-rejection medications she received following her transplant. She is currently undergoing a rigorous chemotherapy treatments. The increase in doctors appointments and primary goal of keeping Jenna healthy has prevented her from going back to Bemidji for spring semester. She is currently working at Cashwise Pharmacy when she feels up to it and is taking an online class through BSU.

Nine designers have joined together to bring you this fun spring kit. These designers have donated 68 papers, 93elements, 1full alphabet, and 2 12x12 quick pages.

Pretty Scrappy orders

Pretty Scrappy store has been closed. If any of you have purchased things from me and did not download your zips, please contact me at ehybben@gmail.com.

Comment from Pretty Scrappy=

With a sad heart I must say that pretty scrappy is closed for good. I know many feel that I am behind what took place but I am not. I admit I made mistakes but no one wants to hear my side of the story. I should have acted faster upon the situation but I honestly wanted to believe my friend. Now sadly I realize that may have clouded my judgment but I never intentionally let theft happen and never took place or had knowledge of such going on until this came up. I admit That my actions my not have been what everyone thinks they should have been and I am sorry all of this has brought down many great designers. I choose to close the shop because I was getting hundreds of instant messages and e-mails and I couldn't take the stress I have never dealt with an issue like this especially one dealing with my own personal friend. My apologies go to those who have been hurt and I pray that you can find it in your heart to forgive me and also stop saying things about me that are untrue.

Thank you,

Pretty scrappy management team

Inkin' Creations is NOT affiliated with the management team at Pretty Scrappy. Inkin' Creations was a designer that sold in their store. To set the record straight...Pretty Scrappy never paid their designers what was owed to them before closing their doors. If you have an issue with Pretty Scrappy, please know that I am in no way affiliated with anyone that made decisions for that digital scrapbooking website.

Retiring

Well, the time has come in my life to make some changes. I have decided this morning that I am retiring from designing. I am working more hours doing speech therapy (which I LOVE!), Pretty Scrappy closed...and there is drama surrounding that (don't love THAT), and my family really comes first. It is just time to step away. Perhaps I will chime in here to let you know about other pursuits... in fact, today we are setting up bird feeders in the yard, so I will be bird watching soon. So, for all of those who have purchased my designs, all of you who have been on my creative team, all of you who have left messages of support...THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. It has been fun while it lasted!

My last day selling my designs will be April 1st.

Take care!
