Meet the KinderStampO Guest Design Team Blog Hop

I am super excited to be a part of KinderStampO's first Guest Design Team and I can't wait to inspire you with her stamps.

Live. craft. Inspire.

Live. I try to live life to the fullest always appreciating who and what I have in my life. I live in Cicero IL (just outside of Chicago) and I have four kids unless you count the Mr because then I have 5, LOL!!! My oldest daughter Angelina is going to be 12 on 12-23 and I am going to give her a JB birthday party with her friends. Angel is my 2nd born at 10 and he is also my only son. Ahnais is my sweet and sour baby because she is just like her Papi...she has the biggest heart but she is also very stubborn and she has NO patience. Ava is my princess at 13 months old and she is still only 19 pounds and just barely makes 2 feet but she is the happiest baby I have ever known. She wakes up happy goes to sleep happy and stays happy almost all day.

Crafty. I started scrapbooking in 2008 and making cards in 2009 then in 2011 I started to explore the altered projects too. I was recently a part of Scrapbookaholic By Abby's design team with some amazing ladies. I love being crafty and sharing my craft time with friends even if by phone so if your in my area or just feeling lonely while your crafting contact me and we can plan something :)

Inspire.  I hope to inspire you with any projects I show and I am currently in the process of setting up for videos to show you how and what I am doing. I am new to this so I am open to any suggestions; thank you!!! Here are a couple of the projects that I have made using my KinderStampO stamps and I have one more that I am almost done with...

 Here are a couple of the letters close up and you can see that each square has different stamps used my camera didn't fit the rest of the banner so I posted a picture of one side for you...

 This musical card is actually the first project I made with my KinderStampO stamp set and I was so excited with how it turned out.
Well, I hope that I have inspired you with my photos!!! Please don't forget to leave a comment and
