I can remember it as if it was yesterday—my first contact with Stacy Julian of (at that time) Simple Scrapbooks Magazine and the resulting invitation to join Simple’s Contributing Editorial team along with popular scrapbookers Cathy Zielske, Donna Downey and others.
Yes, that first step was a bit intimidating, but my excitement at the possibility of sharing the fun and creativity of digital scrapbooking was motivation enough to “just do it.”
Fast forward to today. With the success of ReneePearson.com, now I need a group of creative individuals possessing a similar passion and spirit to form the Charter 2013 Renee Pearson Creative Team.

Would you like to inspire others to learn digital techniques by sharing your own digital creations?
Are you connected to an active online digital crafting, photography or design community?
Are you an active blogger?
Do you post to Facebook frequently and have a large group of “Friends?”
Are you a frequent “Tweeter” with followers?
If the answer is a resounding yes, then we want you!
Creative Team members will be required to:
