Tribute To Joanne Grzelak

Joanne Grzelak
16th November ?? - 25th May 2019

Hi everyone,

As many of you may have already heard by now, our friend and fellow Design Team member passed away suddenly on the 25th May 2019. Joanne had been battling a few health issues recently so hadn't played along with the challenges for a few months, but she was looking forward to getting back into her stamp cave so you could play again.

We first met Joanne on Splitcoast Stampers, where the original CCEE Stampers Design Team used to hang out way back in 2007 in one of their forums and chat most nights. While Joanne wasn't a member of our DT back then, she became a very good friend to us all and used to join in many of our chats in the forum. 

Joanne was very much loved in the stamping community and was very active on Splitcoast Stampers going by the name of Jojot.  Joanne had two blogs The Inky Ocean Gazer and The Inky Ocean Gazer 2

Joanne joined the CCEE Stampers Design Team in January 2010.

 Today we have asked the members of the two challenge Design Teams she was in CCEE Stampers and Crazy 4 Challenges and a few special stamping friend to join us in this special tribute blog hop to our stamping friend by either.
