 Before we go on to the fabulous team inspiration, we must say a fond farewell to our lovely DT Sister Janet Babar, who is stepping down from the team due to other commitments.  Thank you, Janet, for your friendship, inspiration, and gorgeous creations. We wish you all the luck in the world in your future endeavors and hope you won't be a stranger to Aurora Wings.

On a happier note, please welcome Laila aka Koneko as Guest Designer for our Sprite Delight Challenge.  Laila has continuously WOW'ed us with her beautiful creations, both here, on the Challenge Blog, and on the Aurora Wings FB Group page.  She was also the Artist's Choice winner for Challenge #3.  We're just thrilled to have her join us this month.
