Ha, ha. It feels like it is going to be Betsy Day all over the internet today. You may be here from Plugged In with Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking, or you may be here from one of the Go To Gals, but we are all here for one reason. To celebrate Betsy Veldman. (She is gonna die when she reads this). Seriously, Betsy is one of the most amazing scrap talents out there, cards, layouts, mini books, home dec projects, you name it, she does it in a style all her own.
No, it is not her birthday, but all the folks at Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine are wishing Betsy well as she leaves her post as a Go To Gal. She will still be around as a contributor and as a friend, but everyone needs to set priorities and make tough life decisions. I have watched her role at Papertrey Ink grow as a designer and creator and know personally that her kids are always at the top of her To Do List (I can relate), so I can appreciate the need to let something go. Best of wishes to one of my first paper crafting friends as she continues her journey!
This card is for Betsy. I have tried to channel my inner Veldman, but it is a tough row to hoe. Ha, ha. Betsy has such a great style, I think of pink and coral, blue and aqua, stripes and florals, watercolor and scripty sentiments when I think of Betsy. And I know one thing for certain, she brightens my day!
Good luck, Betsy!
