“Seasons” is a massive collaboration put together by many many designers in the scrapping and tagging community to help with the devastation in New Zealand caused by the tragic earthquake. This collaboration is FTU after a donation of $10 USD to the Salavation Army of NZ is made. Please visit Taggers Together for New Zealand to read more on how these talented designers are helping with this cause and to make your donation. This portion of the collaboration was created by Artmama Made. This massive collaboration was all her idea and is responsible for pulling this massive donation together. Hats off to her! Please visit her blog here.
