Congratulations to Joanna of Jabi's Scraps! She has been voted as CAROABT Designer of the Month, for July 2010! Want to know more about her? Read her mini-bio!

Joanna Fritzkowska, joined our happy little group in January of this year. It was also around that time, that she began designing scrap kits. She currently lives in Poland, in the city of Bydgoszcz. She has been married for 3 years, and she and her husband have one dog.

Joanna's favorite color is blue. She enjoys Gospel, praise and worship and pop music. Her favorite food includes a variety of fruit. Joanna's favorite movie is "A Walk to Remember". Her two most favorite books are The Bible and A Little Prince. Her favorite author is Francis Chan.

She loves to travel, as long as it's over the sea. Her dream vacation would be to travel to Isreal or Egypt. When she is not designing, she loves to work out in her garden to relax, and she also enjoys playing computer games. When asked what she would do if she won the lottery, her answer was to buy a couple of houses; one for her parents and one for her and her hubby. 

If she could meet ANYONE in the world, she would choose to meet Celine Dion. Why? Because she is a huge fan! When it comes to designing, she finds inspiration in many things. Seasons, feelings, people all help to spark creativity for her. For the most part, she finds true inspiration from those that she loves the most.

If her friends and family could describe her in just one word, that word would be DILIGENT. Since being a member of CAROABT, I for one, can say this is true. She gives her all in her work, and is very happy to share her talent. Though we may have a short deadline to complete items for a blog train, she does manage to meet that deadline. 

As a special thanks for being voted Designer of the Month, Joanna has whipped up a quick offer for all! If you want to grab it up, please click on the download button to get it! If you want to check out her blog, please go to:

I am so happy to announce that Robin, our FEARLESS LEADER is back! She has been very ill, and was even hospitalized for a time. Now she is catching up with all her emails, and such, but she will be popping in and out of the group all week. Please be sure to extend a very warm welcome back to her...
