The Sparkle Girls came to be in May 2006, when Sparkle Girl Monica posted a thread in the SU! Demo forum of Split Coast Stampers.
The Golden Thread (as historians will no doubt come to call it) invited SU! demos wanting to lose weight to join a new private team at SparkPeople.
Those who heeded the call dubbed themselves the Sparkle Girls, and set out to make their own cyber-history.
