Introducing Skye M. Johnson

Ooh what to say that people might be interested in??!

Ok, here goes...

I am 24 and living in Melbourne. I moved here from country Victoria and I study journalism and fashion design. I started scrapping about 6 months ago in January 2008 and have loved it ever since! I have a love of bright colours and unique embellishments and love to distress! I distress EVERYTHING! Apart from scrapping, I am very interested in Polaroid photography and have 3 different Polaroid cameras, as well as a digital SLR, 2 film SLR's and a lomography camera! My little camera family is growing all the time!
I also love visiting my family in the country, going to the beach and travelling overseas!

Introducing Donna Espiritu

My name is Donna Espiritu and I hail from the little town of Cainta province of Rizal, Philippines. I'm 31 years old and been married for four years to a wonderful and very supportive husband. We don't have kids yet (but we're really praying very hard for a little one) so that's why my scrapbook subjects are always my family and friends. I love experimenting and learning new ways to incorporate on my scrapbook layouts, at the same time, I want others to see through my creations because it signifies me somehow. I believe I am a friendly and people can get along with me easily :D (that's what they say too hehehe)
Scrapbooking isn't just a hobby for me anymore, it helped me "meet" new people whom later on I became friends with. And I am just so happy and excited to be part of this community! Can't wait to create with all of you! :)

Thankyou to everyone who participated in our Creative Team challenge. It was such a hard decision due to the fantastic work that was submitted, that I was unable to narrow it down to just 3 people. As a result, we will have a team of SIX Creative Artists, that will inspire everyone with their sketches and LO's.

I am delighted to welcome the following people to the Mystical Black Magic Team.

Donna (aka Scrappydonna)
Natalie (aka Scrappynat)
Emma (aka Emmy Bum)

I am also thrilled to announce our current DT member, Susan Longman, as the Black Magic Blog Co-ordinator.
Congratulations again ladies. I look forward to seeing all the great work that you will inspire us with.
Let the challenges begin !!!!!
