This week's featured layout is a beautiful one made by Sherri:

In Memory of Taru Jehkonen


  We just learned that Taru passed away suddenly a few days ago.

It was shocking and very sad news. 

Taru was a talented, longstanding design team member for Challenge YOUrself.  She became part of the Challenge YOUrself design team in June of 2015.  

Here is her design team announcement from 2015:

Taru contributed many beautiful projects to our design team over the years. She won first place with this amazing page just before becoming a member of our design team:


 And here are more of Taru's amazing pages:







 

With two of Taru's most recent contributions to our design team:



Thank you for everything, Taru.  We will miss you.
