I've had a sweet surprise twice in the last week! My dear friend and fellow designer Michelle and my wonderfully talented and sweet creative team member Cindy both gave me this award!


I've been forbidden from passing it to previous recipients, and I've tried not to pick those who I seen have recently received it from others, but I still had a hard time picking only 5! I'm happy to pass this award along to the following deserving artists!

* My dear friend Rachel aka happay. She's the one who initially piqued my interest in scrapping and always makes amazing layouts!

* Julie Ann Shahin - I had the wonderful pleasure of working with her on the Every Digital Scrapbooking Idea Blog and I'm constantly admiring her beautiful work!

* Two fellow Gotta Pixel designers: Lynne Simmons and Connie Prince aka DigiDiva. I think I've loved every kit they've released and if I only had more scrapping time, I'd be using their kits!

* Finally, Stacy Carlson, the co-founder of Gotta Pixel! She's retired from selling kits, but still does beautiful work and takes amazing photos!


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.

Well that didn't take long! The Gotta Pixel store is back online!

My latest kit is Cutie-Pie Carlie, inspired by the cutest little dress that one of my CT members received for her new baby girl. I also have separate paper, element and alpha sets available.



And since Blogger is being picture-friendly again, here's the prop for the Gotta Be Quick Challenge!
I've got my Tulips in Bloom series on sale through the end of the month, 40% off!


I'm working on a fun little boyish kit right now, so look out for it soon!
I very quickly got out of the habit of posting again! I released a new kit not too long ago, and I have some other kits on sale, but Gotta Pixel's store is down at the moment. We moved servers this morning and the store isn't back up yet, so I'll hold off posting about the kit until it's back online.

You can get a little taste of my new kit in my Gotta Be Quick challenge! I was going to post a preview but I don't have the patience for Blogger's image tool is being extra slow today, so just click on that link for now. :)

If you can't get on to Gotta Pixel, just try again in a bit. Your ISP may not have updated the address yet.

I thought I'd have some new goodies to share, but instead of creating I did some much needed spring cleaning on my hard drive! I started collecting digital scrapbooking goodies over 2 years ago and never really cleared through everything! I have no idea how much I deleted, but it sure was a lot! Sampler kits that just don't match my style, old challenge props, quickpages I'll never use and all sorts of random odds and ends! Feels so good to have sorted through all that and gotten it more organized!

I mentioned the joint event that Gotta Pixel is having with pickleberrypop this month over in this post, but goofed up the details a bit! That kit I showed before--that's only HALF of the mega kit! You can get that one by completing Gotta Pixel's challenge. You can get this other half of the mega kit by completing the challenge over at pickleberrypop.

Short post today since my last 2 have been so long! Just wanted to share this layout that I finally finished! I started this one in early February (I used the background and the torn little piece of paper for the Feb Gotta Be Quick Challenge if you want to pick them up free to test drive the kit). I really wanted the Notepaper Alpha for the title so the layout was stalled until I got around to making it! The kit is Calico Cutie and I decided to doodle the outline letters on the alpha to make it stand out against the tan background.

A new month means a new mega kit at Gotta Pixel! Things have changed up a bit this month--all Gotta Pixel subscribers will get it for free! You can purchase the mega kit for $8.50, but subscriptions start at just $14, and that includes over 1,000 other items to download at no extra cost, so it's an even better deal! I think this month's kit is just beautiful!
Here's my contribution to the mega kit.

April is also bringing a fun new event to Gotta Pixel, and this month it's a joint event with pickleberrypop!
For participating, you'll get this fun mega kit!


I filled in that cute calendar MelindaH made and updated my desktop last night!
