Now please welcome Priss Steelman, who is joining us as Guest Designer for this special celebration.

 "I am honored to be a Guest Designer this month. My name is Priss Steelman, and my husband of 58 years and I live in Mesquite, NV, 70 miles east of Las Vegas. I am a retired educator, school principal, and college professor. I am a Red Hat Queen, a ham radio operator, and Vice President of a Sun City paper crafting club called Papers 'N Pixels.

Photography, Photoshopping, and digital scrapbooking, and working as one of our family historians, occupy quite a lot of my time. I also sew, knit, and cross stitch, and just love quilted ornaments and quilted ornament design. But mostly, I love paper (and pixel) crafting. I have finished and framed many of Mitzi's gorgeous maidens, goddesses, and spirits, and have always delighted particularly in her Sprites and flowers, which makes this month's challenge double the fun."
