My First Blogoversary Blog Hop!!!

Hello and welcome to my very first year of bloggin!!! I am sooooo excited! I started this journey right after my BFF Gaby convinced me that I needed to create one so that I could post a challenge. Now, you might ask yourself, why is Gaby not on the line-up... well, she had another Blog Hop and she had committed to that one before I mentioned this one to her.... and she was going to be on it, only that I asked if she wanted out because of the other commitment and well, things got misunderstood..... I think I am mixing you up more that I need to!!! I know she still hasn't forgiven me and she thinks I kicked her out!!! :) 

Anyways! There is a 5 de Mayo Blog Hop and she is on that one for sure!! :) What started as just a way to show my creations once in a while has become now a HUGE part of my life! I have been on many design teams! I have met many wonderful ladies along the way and friendships are starting to bloom!! I love this little world of ours!

So, I asked a group of ladies to create along with me to celebrate my first year bloggin! and I shared with them a list of some MUST-HAVES on my crafting table. They could use just one, but I challenged them to use as many as they could!!

For my project I created a 2 page-layout based on one of my faves! Pagemaps sketch!

I played with pictures on Photoshop, which is another of my favorites!

Now, I know that when you wait till 5 minutes before your posting is suppose to go up... well, you tend to get the worst pictures ever!!! UGH!!! If you know Basic Grey and BoBunny and DCWV, you know how BEAUTIFUl these paper are in person!! I will take pictures again in the morning! Let's see if that works!

My Creative Time's Throwback Thursday!

Hi everyone!! It's that time again!! Throwback Thursday with Emma!!! and to be honest, after all Emma has gone through, I really thought our Throwback Thursday would be postponed.... but as Emma shared with us, scrapping is her therapy so I'm happy!! The challenge for this week to use the color green and any cartridge!! Easy enough right??

I used  Baby Steps cart, DCWV paper, Peachy Keen faces and the new stamp set called "You're My Best Buddy", this is one of my favorites!!!!!! 

Here is my card:

What do you think??? I mean.... look!! I HAVE NO GYPSY!!!!! Pretty good huh?? I cut the first layer twice in the brown (which you can see in the shoes) and again in skin color and just used the head part!!! I was soooo happy that I could still peachify my little guy!!!

So don't forget to go visit Emma and take a look at all the inspiration you will find with the other DT members!!! They always amaze me with their creations!!!

Thank you for taking a peek and don't forget that I live for your comments!!!!
