Dear Reflections Attendees,

By now you have received the news about Teresa. It was such a hard decision for all of us. We knew Teresa was overbooked and going to miss a big event in her daughter's life. She was feeling overwhelmed and her family was very upset with her. I think we all get ourselves in positions like that where we just don't know what to do and we're disappointing the people who are the most important to us. We believe that family comes first and we started trying to figure out a way to help Teresa but still give you the best possible teacher and event. Then we had a WONDERFUL idea. When we were at CHA the very sweet and talented Stephanie Ackerman was there doing all of Teresa's make and takes. The buzz in the booth was about some AMAZING book that were on display. And guess who made a lot of these book? Why yes, Stephanie! So when this came up with Teresa we thought maybe we could convince Stephanie to create a book for us and she said YES. The book is a totally unique, one a kind project. It uses Teresa's products and we think you will agree that it is something you will TREASURE! It is filled with TECHNIQUE and you will even make your own album. We're sure this is something you will "flip" over (and yes, that is a hint on the project). Stephanie got right to work and has been creating non stop since our discussion. We think you will agree the book is wonderful and unique. And could the title be any more perfect? Remember Family Memories. Please open attachment to see a picture of the album.
Stephanie is filled with creative, innovative, and very practical ideas.
Here's a little list of her resume.

· She had her own magazine, Homegrown Hospitality. If you don't recognize that name it became Home and Heart and Holiday Home this past holiday season.
· Her doodles are famous!
· She's designed stamps for Purple Onion Designs.
· She designed embellishments for Me and My Big Ideas.
· She designed a line for Bo Bunny.
· She's been on numerous design teams including Making Memories, Prima, Freckle Friends and Polka Dot Whimsy.
· She 's a Fiskateer- Nifty 50.

We want you to know that we did not come upon this decision lightly but we truly believe that family comes first. We also fully believe that you deserve the BEST teachers and WONDERFUL projects. We hope you will understand and support this decision. We are striving to make Reflections the best event you've ever been to! We hand picked the 7 teachers because they all have something special to offer. Stephanie fits in perfectly with the caliber of our other designers.
And to satisfy your curiosity sneak peeks will start next week on our blog.
Thank you for all your support! We can't wait until May!!
Susan and Karen
