SDC226 : Trees

Happy 2016 everyone, we hope that your Christmas and New Year was amazing!!!
It's time to kick off the new year with our first challenge.
(To see the winner's from December's Challenges, please see the bottom of this post.)

Our guest designer for January is the wonderful and talented Shelby Thomas

"My name is Shelby Thomas. My family and I live in beautiful El Paso County in Colorado. I've been crafting since 2010 after leaving the Healthcare Administration field to find my sanity. I've loved every minute discovering the amazing world of crafting and all the different avenues it has to offer. I've been blessed to have had the opportunity to be a SAHM for the last 5 years and the opportunity to discover my love of teaching in the crafting industry.  My first love is Copics but I'm falling in love with a multitude of mediums and love incorporating various techniques and products into my designs.  I'm currently on several different design teams:  Whimsy Stamps, Memory Box and Pink Ink stamps."

"Trees have always been such a source of life for many living creatures and I just love them. I am asking you to add some trees to your entries this week"

Below is some wonderful inspiration from our design team
