Wow! I was awarded this special prize!

Two sweet friends, Linda and Monica, aka The Ad Ladies, just sent this to me! Boy! Was I surprised! Linda and Monica have a really great blog where they tell what's going on with many digital designer friends. Make sure to check it out HERE. Thank you, Monica! Thank you, Linda!

For those of you receiving the Award, here are the rules:
1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.
http://arteypico.blogspot.com/Make sure you visit the link above. There are crafts of all kinds shown; you are bound to come away inspired!
5) Show these rules.


Now the rules say I must pick 5 of my favorite blogs. Only 5! That's tough!

Let's see, some have already received this award, so I've chosen 5 more of my sweet and talented friends...


Randi Oh ~ What a dear girl! I love visiting with Randi and catching up with her life and hearing about her little one. Make a visit to Randi's blog, and you'll see her great designs and what rocks her world. :) Randi, I love calling you my friend!

Julie ~ Junglemom ~ I chose Julie because she's been such a wonderful CT member and friend for a LONG time! She's put up with me about as long as anyone, and she scraps remarkable pages with my kits! Check out Julie's blog. Yay, you! :)

Sarah ~ Kanga ~ is both a designer and a great CT member. I love seeing what she comes up with for both my kits and her own designs. Doubly talented! Sarah's blog is Kanga's Kreations. Sarah, I love working with you! :)

Cindy ~ You'll have fun reading about Cindy on her blog ~ Scrappin Like Crazy. Cindy is another one of my CT members ~ oh, so talented! Someday when my life lets me scrap more, I plan on using everything I've learned from Cindy. :) Cindy, you sure do scrap like crazy, and your journaling is the best!

Armina ~ This pretty lady makes my designs dance! Talk about talent! I struck gold when I found Armina and am so glad to work with her! Make sure to see her blog. Armina, this is for you! :)

Now, if only I could mention ALL the other talented ladies I've met and become friends with in this fun life! (It seems some of you have already received this special award, and I'm sure others will really soon!) I'm so proud of all of you and so lucky to have you as my friends!

Have a freebie on me! And how about a discount?!

I really had a lot of fun making this kit! The rain and water papers and the one with wooden planks and pegs ~ so cool! Then I played with characters for about 2 weeks straight. It was so much fun to get to the smallest parts and then see if I could make them look cute and real ~ sorta ~ at the same time. I find that little touches make a lot of difference. The shine on Noah's head, the slight pink of his cheeks, and the added toenails helped bring him to life. What's funny is that I think I'm finished with a character, and then I look at him again the next day, and tweak the layers some more.

It's all wrapped up now though and is in both of my stores ~ Gotta Pixel and Digitals. Join my mailing list at the top of this page if you'd like to receive a Gotta Pixel discount coupon to purchase this kit and anything you check out with it for 20% off! The discount is good only for a few days ~ through the end of April, 2008, so sign up now if you haven't already! If you're on my mailing list, look for a note from me today. :)

Here's a FREE quick page for you:

You can download it HERE. You'll need the password ~ monkeys~ to unzip this quick page. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. :)

I also want to make an additional set of animals and am open for suggestions. Do you have a favorite you'd like to see included?

Sweet new kit ~ includes quick pages!

S is for Spring! is the first in a series of Alphabet Soup kits, and I designed it using some of the great colors in my daughter Brandi's home. She and her husband, Ryan, have painted the rooms really pretty, using different colors, and I just love it! There are more colors, and you'll see them in my next Alphabet Soup kit!

You can find S is for Spring! at Digitals and Gotta Pixel.

I had so much fun designing it, that I've made you some quick pages to match. The first set of 2 comes free with the purchase of this kit for the rest of April only. Don't miss out!

This next quick page is a gift to all of you on my mailing list. What? You're not getting my special mailing list news yet?

It's easy to do, and I don't send out daily mailings, so you don't have to worry about too much mail. Everyone who knows me can tell you I'm way too busy for that. I also keep your address private, and no one else sees it. I'd love to have you on my list. Just type your Email address in the Mailing List box at the top of this page and click Subscribe. Then watch for my Welcome Email. I send them out myself and do try to get to this every day, so it shouldn't take too long.

Now, which letter should I make next?
