Stylish Blogger Award

Hola Amigas...Can you believe it? I was given this Blog Award by two beautiful and amazing friends. Thank you Sonia (She and I are Designers for INKspiration 4U) and Laurie (She and I are Designers for USTAMP with Dawn and Friends). For accepting this, there are a couple of things I need to do. First, I need to tell you 8 things about myself that you may not know.
So, here goes:
1. I go OVERBOARD when organizing. There is a label and/or container for EVERYTHING.

2. I am a Girl Scout Leader. Cookie sales begin January 20.

3. I was a Bilingual Kindergarten Teacher before becoming a Mami. I miss teaching.

4. I was a Pampered Chef Consultant and a Baby Signs Instructor (taught sign language to hearing babies and children)

5.Every room in my house is a different color. My bedroom is Cajun Craze, Solimar's is Certainly Celery and Almost Amethyst, Joaquin's is Ballet Blue, Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake, Small Bathroom is Bashful Blue and Basic Black...You get the picture.

6. I decorate my house every month with a theme/holiday.

7. I am a Harry Potter JUNKIE.

8. I am a Twilight Saga JUNKIE.

Now the second part is to award this to 8 amazing women. Now I would pick the same ladies that gave it to me but I want to pick 8 different artists.

6. Julie Semones

Treat Box Card for USTAMP with Dawn and Friends

Hola Amigas! As you know I am a Guest Designer for USTAMP with Dawn and Friends. This is the project I showcased. We had to use a 12 x 12 sheet of cardstock with no LEFTOVERS. The other cool thing is that no one EVER uses the same color combo and ALL colors are used. Not only that I was asked to come back...YEAH ME! I am so excited. There is still time to come on over and see all the GORGEOUS artwork.

My card uses a BRAND NEW Stamp Set called Plane & Simple. It's from the 2011 Occassions Mini catalog that goes live on January 4. If you would like this set or MANY more from the Occassions Mini just give me a call or email me.
