Ro, thank you for creating SG’s and bringing it to this point. It’s been a fantastic place for me, where I’ve learned SO much and met some extremely gifted and wonderful people and friends. And thank you for holding on until you could find someone to which you could ‘pass the reins’. As I read your email, three things made my breath quicken (and NOT in a good way!): Ro is sick, Ro is leaving, SG’s almost closed its doors!!! But you and God worked together and as usual when he is welcomed into the decision process, the outcome can be nothing but ‘right’!
I wish you SO much peace, Ro. You have been battling stress for about as long as I’ve known you, and I could see that it was taking its toll on you both physically and mentally; but you always courageously battled through. Hearing about your scary episode last weekend makes it very evident that you are doing the right thing for you and your family. Take some time to quiet your life a bit. We will be seeing you in both your new ‘building businesses’ venture and when you continue your design endeavors here at SG’s.
Debbie, welcome to your new home here at SG’s. You have made a great decision to take the reins from Ro and lead us onward in our digital scrapbooking venture. We look to the past, not with regret, but with love; and to the future with great expectation.
PS – I was able to have one chuckle when I opened this post. Is it not appropriate that Angie smoothly took care of Ro’s cable access problem just like she has taken care of a trillion problems for us all?!

Debbie, I want to thank you for taking this on. This has been a place to explore creativity, and most of all make friends. We're glad that you were able to be there when it was time to turn over the reins. Looking forward to the next phase of ScrapGirls.

And when I'm all rested, I'll be designing and releasing new products. I have tons of ideas that I could never get to. Lots and lots of them. You should see it. I have three or four sketch books full of ideas! It will be fun to create them for you.
So I'll see you around.

Ro words fail me after reading your post. I know I have not been on the boards in such a long time mostly due to ill health myself but when ever I needed products to scrap with this is the first place I come.
Ro my life change when I found this sunny purple place. I had never used photoshop before I came here and now I use is in so many different ways both at home and at work. You opened my world up to so many possibilities and challenges. All because of YOU!!
You have touched so many lives. One of the most important reasons that I think Scrap Girls has been so instrumental in many lives is that this purple place has been open to all regardless of your beliefs. I know that the prayers of many has been heard and answered through the many members of Scrap Girls.
My time on team was fantastic and I hold it very dear to my heart. I think you held us all up to a higher standard which has made Scrap Girls the fun, energetic, creative place that it is today.
Ro my prayer for you now is that you will rest in the palm of God's hand and let Him heal you. You have blessed and touch so many, now may God bless you as you trust in Him and the plan He has for you.
Thank you seems not enough to express my gratitude to you but thank you!!

It seemed a little like "hearing the other shoe drop" after the past few months, and I'm relieved that you have made the choice to "pass the baton" to the next runner/conductor, and live to tell about it. Stress attacks can be an amazing gift. It sure makes you want to avoid the real thing. That's your job now.
I share all the gratitude expressed here for the courage and passion you have invested in Scrap Girls. It is such a remarkable accomplishment. Nothing can diminish that or the success you have earned. Thank you!
We''ll look forward to hearing from a healthier you, in whatever capacity inspires you.
Debbie, welcome! You must be a pretty smart cookie or this would never have happened. You clearly know how lucky you are and I send you all good wishes and prayers for the continued success of Scrap Girls.

We will be here, looking forward to your visits and wisdom.
Welcome Debbie, I'm sure Ro is reassured in finding someone like you who will take care of her little purple place.

On the first of June I was operated on for colon cancer--a mass found during a routine colonoscopy. So you never know what bumps there are in the road. Tomorrow I meet with the Oncologist for chemotherapy, but I have high hopes. Ro, you made a comment several years ago. It was something on the order of: If you were say 60 years old, and had a life expectancy of 80, you had 20 more years...20 years x 365 days...which is a total of 7300 days--so make the best of EACH day! I've never forgotten that. The ticker is ticking and even louder now. I do not have the exact count but every day when I wake up I wonder what can I do today to make it one that really counts!!! Thank you for all your wisdom and sage advice. I'll definitely continue to follow your outlook on life through your blog. One favorite collection I loved that you did years ago I think was called Florida Vacation. (I lost it when my EHD crashed.) I'm looking forward to seeing your new work at ScrapGirls.
Nourish your body, spirit and mind. You are much loved and appreciated!
