For our fifth anniversary, we're doing a fun feature with some of our long time subscribers. They'll each be sharing a bit about themselves and what they love about Studio Calico. We also asked each of them to issue a challenge to our design team - we'd love to see YOU take their challenges as well. Check the bottom of the post for more information! Thank you to these fabulous ladies for taking the time to help us out with our party!!
Say hello to : Denise (you'll find her on the message boards / gallery as DeniseN)

Her favorite SC line : Homefront
Tell us a little bit about you & why you love SC : I live in Bloomington, MN too near the Mall of America and Ikea. My goal in life is to never go into either of those places on a weekend. I rarely succeed. I'm addicted to Paperkins, gardening and swimming. Not in that order. For some reason I'm the pied piper of all my neighbor kids, godsons, nephews and niece. It may be due to the fact that I have a pool, take them all to Sonic at least once a week and like to sit in my garage during thunderstorms telling ghost stories. Or it could be my bubbly personality. I'm going with the pool on that one. In all seriousness, my life is ordinary. In between running to Minneapolis music venues to listen to my godson's band, I sleep, wake, go to work at a company that owns and manages shopping centers then come home, scrap and boss my cabana boys around. Life is good. ;o)
I love SC for many reasons. The kits force me out of my boring creative box. The kits are full of things I normally would not purchase on my own. I also like that SC has exclusives you cannot get anywhere else. Plus, I happen to have a hoarding problem with stamps. Need I say more?
Her favorite project made with SC : this page using Daydream Believer
Denise's challenge to the design team : Well, how about a 5 challenge to fit with the 5th anniversary? Let's say a layout/project designed around this. Complete the sentence: In five years, I/we ......
Here's what three of our designers did with the challenge :
