HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
 
Thank you so much for all your beautiful ANYTHING GOES challenge entries. We loved all your beautiful creations using your favorite products from 7 Kids College Fund! It's always fun to have as many entries as we did this time with an open challenge.
 
We had an amazing announcement yesterday as we introduced you to our new Design Team for Jan-Jun 2013!! I hope you will take a look at the post below. We had so many amazing entries that we ended up choosing 4 guest designers to join us for March - June so we will no longer be choosing guest designers from our challenges. That said, we DO have one final guest designer to announce, chosen from our challenges in December.

And here is our Guest Designer for February:

Announcing the 7 Kids College Fund Jan-Jun 2013 Design Team!

Happy New Year!!!
 
I thought it would be great to take some time today to announce our new team. I am so excited for you to get to know these incredible ladies for the next 6 months! We had an amazing amount of applications and we try to keep our team small with just 7 but we couldn't narrow it all the way down so we had to select 4 guest designers to complete our 6 months.
 
Without too much chatting, I want to introduce you to our 7 Kids College Fund team. I will be introducing you to them in a bit more detail over the next 7 days as they start sharing with us their first projects!! Please help me in welcoming them:
