Pattie’s Creations     

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
Grand Prize Winner will receive: 3 digis

You will love working with this sketch.  It is really a fun one.
Thanks, Arlana

  2. Good evening everyone, well I did think winter was over and spring was here but tonight I've had to put the heating on again and there is so much snow down in parts of New Zealand so it's made the temperature drop even where we live and last week I was wearing some summer clothes. Congratulations to Lisa Lynn being our winner from last weeks challenge and to our Top 3 cards great week ladies. What a wonderful array of cards from the DT this week we all had amazing images to work with from our Sponsor Pattie Gomez the owner of Pattie's Creations. Thank you Pattie great images.
