I LOVE my Teacher Blog Hop!!!

Hello and welcome to the I LOVE my Teacher Blog Hop!! With school starting I thought we are always so focused on welcoming the kids back to class... SO, this year, why don't we show welcome our teacher with as much enthusiasm!!! 
Can you imagine the teacher's face when your son/daughter comes in with a little something just for them? I know I would have a huge smile ALL day!! 

This is why this hop came to mind and I invited a bunch of talented ladies to help YOU get inspired with little projects for teachers!! 

For my project I created a LO that I will frame and give to my son's teacher as soon as they get their class picture! For some reason I never see these displayed in the classrooms and I thought this would make a nice frame for the teacher to have.

Materials Used:
Basic Grey- Hopscotch Collection
Core'Dination Cardstock
Make The Cut- for Sign
Create A Critter- Apple
Simply Charmed- Notebook page
The Twinery- BEST twine in the world!

Challenge Day over @ Little Scraps of Heaven Designs

Happy Friday!!! Today is day for another FUN challenge over at Little Scraps Of Heaven Designs!! 

The theme is ALL ABOUT BOYS with a little  twist! make sure you use buttons on your project!

I created this cute LO for my aunt. When her kids were younger they use to go to Charreadas  A LOT, charreadas is something similar to rodeos. Anyways, her kids always dressed for those events and she has tons of pictures!

I used DCWV stack Mi Casa and pattern Mariachi Player from LSHD and just in case you are wondering what Mariachi is check it out HERE!

Mi Mariachito is the diminutive form of Mariachi. In Mexico we used the diminutive form of things to express love and affection. 

Thank you for taking a peek and don't forget to join in the fun!

and don't forget tomorrow I am hosting a blog hop!

I am Growing Creativity with Crafty Sprouts!!!!!

Hello my dear followers and viewers!!! I am soooo happy to be part of this new adventure with Erika! Her new line of stamps will be out for Pre-Order this Friday!!!  So make sure you take a peek all this week over at Crafty Sprouts to fall in love with this cute stamp line!!!

I am sooo happy and I am having tons of fun!!! I created my first card using Simply Betty stamps, Echo Park Paper, The Twinery twine, EK Success border punch, Spellbinders and of course

I stamped the barcode on the inside of my card with a little less ink to make it look more grungy looking. Every set Erika comes out with will have this barcode, it will be like her signature stamp! CUTE!!!

If you are wondering about my coloring..... it is all done on Photoshop!!! I have taped a tutorial and I am editing!! It will be ready this week.

How about some SWEET candy!?!? Erika is giving away a stamp set! You have to make you make a comment here and on her blog, Crafty Sprouts!! Thank You for visiting and don't forget that every design team member will be showcasing one of the new stamp sets this week!!!
