Hola, Chica and Stamping Around Vermont '09!

Remember my friend, Sonya, that was my navy room mate in Orlando that I was telling you about last week? Well, I just had to pay tribute to her with this great "Hola Chica!" by Paper Pretties! She's as colorful as they come and when you're around her, it's always a "large" time and big fun! Believe me, there's not a time that you couldn't have found us dancing around with fruit or other things on our heads and acting like it was just a normal thing to do! Thanks for helping me remember how short life and great friends and fun times are. It's a welcome path to travel down.

Also, whenever I work with my Paper Pretties, I always think of Julie and Jodi, two fun stampers I met at our Stamp New England event I attended with two of my stamping buddies, Lynn and Molly. That event went so well that Julie and Kim have started a business of setting up stamping events everywhere and the next one that's closest to me is in September in Vermont. So for any of you who are anywhere close, they're taking sign-ups and if it's like the last time, they'll fill up fast! So click on the Stamping Around Vermont blinkie on my sidebar and go take a look at what all is going on! This is an event I won't want to ever miss! Great instructors, gorgeous give-a-ways, and wonderful company are one of the best ways to spend some time!

Anyway, I colored Miss Chica herself with copics and used a bit of Smooch on her top and some Glaze on the fruit. She's colorful and great fun and I wish a Miss Chica in everyone's lives! Have a great day!

Card Ingredients:

Hola, Chica by Paper Pretties, copics, Smooch, Glaze Pen by Jellyroller, nestabilities, divine swirls and dotted swiss cuttlebug folders, paper from my stash.
