You Little Devil!

It's a special day at the Hoedown! We have a brand new challenge, and a brand new Design Team! AND we have a special guest, who will be introducing it all! So let's get to it:
"Hello! My name is Bailey Hunter. I live with Monica and Tim and the Hunter kids in Virginia. This is a picture of me posing for the new Hambo digi image for this week: "Bailey Devil." I am sure my family thinks that is a fitting name, as sometimes I do things that they don't approve of. Like... there used to be a lot of ivy where I am sitting, but it got in the way of my play space, and I moved it. Now it's dirt again and I love it! But anyway, back to MY images. You can see all of them and all my pictures growing up if you click HERE. I am getting to be big! I have a girlfriend. Her name is Fiona and she lives in Nebraska with Judy, the Design Team Coordinator. I plan to visit Fiona someday! Maybe during Halloween. I can wear my Devil costume and she can wear her Angel costume. Want to see my costume? Check it out below. Oh! Time to go eat. Bye for now!"

Introducing...... BAILEY DEVIL!

And we have a brand new Design Team to show off their devilish talents! Three new faces and three familiar ones, and lots of inspiration and fun for you this week, as our challenge is all about SPARKLE!
