Welcome back....

Hey y'all, Danielle here...Welcome back to The Creative Type! We're back from summer break (a little late, I know) and have a lot of exciting new news.
First, we're all really glad to get back into the swing of things and hope you'll join us in the upcoming challenges we have planned. We love seeing what you come up with and being inspired by all the crafty goodness you always show us. It makes us feel really proud to be part of a scrapbooking and crafting community that spans the planet. So stay with us and play along for all the challenges we have coming up!

Over the summer we lost a couple Creative Type DT people, life commitments and whatnot, and we'll miss them and wish them the very best! Hope they'll play along with us sometimes!!!

As for new news, we're excited that our old DT member Sandy has returned once again after spending some time off to be a new mama to her adorable little bean Chloe! Yay for us though, Sandy always brings the most rad stuff.

And we have some new DT members!! You can read their bios in the tab above titled Typists.

Many of you know Jeremy, I was super happy when he decided to join us, he's funny and crazy talented! (P.S. Jer, I love you...)

And I can't wait for you to get to know Marie, she's super creative and a lovely person to boot!!

And many of you know Steph, she's pretty popular in the old scrapbooking circles. We were really excited to have her join us as well!

Elisa who has played along with us since we first started, her pages have inspired and awed us. We just had to have her join our team:)

We have a couple other newbies joining us and as soon as I get their pictures and such, I'll be posting about them!

And we're also looking for a few new Design Team members!! If you think you'd want to join the Creative Type team, please keep an eye out for upcoming news on that. We're looking for creative, fun and commited people to join our CT team. More soon on that.

This challenge is all about INSPIRATIONAL people in your lives. We here at CT had to pick another CT member we are inspired by. It could be their personality, their creative styles, a certain technique they're famous for, and scrapbook them. So, basically, you to pick someone in your life, or maybe in the scrapbook/crafty world (maybe you've never even met them) and scrapboook or do something creative about them. Once you're done, take a picture and upload it here in our Flickr group please!! Also, please leave a comment here on the Creative Type blog with a link to your blog if you have one with the project, and let us know you did upload it to Flickr. It helps us keep track!!

Here's what team A did:

Pam picked Dani and her always fab scrapbooking style, isn't it awesome? Pam, you are so amazing, too!

Marie picked Danielle ;) (love the happy colors!!)

Jeremy did Vanessa (rad!) (Told you he was amazing!)

Danielle picked Steph (we met last year,the UK, this is us outside Hampton Court (Henry VIII's pad, she's the sweetest!)

On the 15th we'll be announcing some other new members, showing what Team B has as their inspirational pages and all about the new Design Team call out!!! With that , you may have noticed we don't mention any prizes this time? Well, honestly, finding sponsors has become more and more challenging with the economy not so hot and we thought, those of you who love to create for the sure pleasure of creating, are doing it for that, not for prizes. We hope you'll stick with us and play along anyway. We will at times offer prizes (anyone out there want to offer a prize, please contact Danielle at Now, go and create something nice about someone who inspires you, and upload it to our Flickr group as well as leave us a link for us here to leave comments on your blog! Come play along!!!
