*Stepping Down*

We just wanted to write a quick note to let all of you know that we decided to step down from Addictive Pleasures CT. Tamie is in the process of reviewing her CT, which if you have visited her blog lately you have seen. Rather than wait for her decision we have decided to walk away and remove ourselves from the situation. We have enjoyed working with her kits and we wish her the best of luck in the future. We are still on and will remain to work with our other awesome CT's...Artmama Made, Rieka Rafita, Sweet Cravings Scraps & Creative Intentionz. Keep your eyes open for more tuts coming your way soon.
