Back from Vacation...

And feelin' fine!! Hehe, actually I'm just trying to get back into the routine again. Now I had pictures from my wonderful vacation at the beaches in the Outerbanks of North Carolina, but when deleting one blurry one, it ended up deleting ALL my vacation pics!!! I'm so upset! But, I have two beautiful pictures to share with you of our dear Arlana, creator of our sketches, and her hubby with their darling little granddaughter, Adelyn.

Bet you said "Awwwww," just like I did!!! Congratulation Grandma and Grandpa!!

And here's our sketch, a blast from the past! We hope you have as much fun using it as we did. But before I show off what all the talented DT did, let me tell you about our sponsor.

Pattie Gomez Bio

I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.

I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.

Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed.
Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief...
Pattie is graciously offering our winner 3 free digis of their choice!!!!!

  5. Hello to all. Arlana, your grand-daughter is so cute. I can't wait until my new one gets here. Two and a half months to go. Like Judi, I hope to see your new grand-daughter soon. Pattie, thank you for sponsoring us this week. We have had so much fun with your images. Linda, thanks for the post and I am so sorry you lost your photo's. I hate that when it happens. Have a great week everyone. Bring on the inspiration!!!

  6. Sorry to hear about your photo loss but all MAY not be lost. You may be able to recover them. Just do a google search. There are many utilities out there that will recover/rebuild files on memory cards or on your computer as long as that space has not been re-used. Years ago I was having issues with some of my memory cards and wound up using a utility called ZAR. Got all my photos back that I had thought were lost. Just use the free download they have available, no need to pay for the bells and whistles version.

  7. Oh, I'm not first surely, that doesn't happen very often! Great inspiration and fabby sketch and one very cute baby!
