Bittersweet DeNami post

This is by far the most difficult post I've written yet.
I have been a designer for DeNami Design since April of 2010.  
It was my very first design team and I was still a newbie blogger.  
I will never forget the joy I felt when Paulina told me I had made the team.
Especially since it happened to be April 1, and I thought it might be an April Fools Day joke :)
I have loved working for Paulina and Nami, getting to meet the whole DeNami family, and getting to know all the DeNami blog fans.
I absolutely adore Paulina!  She is the sweetest, kindest, most organized person ever and I am so glad to call her my friend.
Please indulge me as I share a couple of my favorite cards that I created for DeNami Designs.  I've linked each photo to it's original post in case you want details :) 

My time with DeNami has come to an end and that is very hard to say.
It's hard to say goodbye to a team and a company that I love so dearly.
Thank you so much Paulina and Nami for having me!
I have grown so much as a designer during my time with you and I will never forget all the kindness and friendship you've shown me :)
There are good things to come though!
 I have started a fantastic inky adventure that I will be able to share in just a couple short months.
I will still be very much around here in blogland, so if you follow my blog or my challenge blog, 
stay tuned.  
My big announcement is coming later this summer and I can't wait to share it!!
