Some Exciting News!!!

Hello sweet crafting friends! I'm SUPER excited to tell you that I am beyond THANKFUL and THRILLED to have been asked by Emma to continue on her My Creative Time Design Team for another term. I love working with Emma she is seriously the best crafty boss I know. She is AMAZING! I LOVE Emma's stamps and dies and I'm thrilled to continue creating with them as well. I also love the friendships that are made being on Emma's team and can't wait to get to know the new members of the team!!!

Emma wanted me to share a little bit about myself.

My name is Glora. I have an amazing and supportive husband and I am the mother of two darling girls. I LOVE staying home full time with my girls and working part time as an accountant. I'm an active member of my church and I play the piano during singing time for the children (3-12 years old). It is the BEST! A friend of mine teaches Zumba and I've been doing it 2-3 times a week for about 16 months. It is seriously addicting and I love it! I am a total and absolute Disney nut and can never get enough of that either!

In my spare time I like to be creating. I've paper crafted for as long as I can remember. I was introduced to the Cricut over 4 years ago and was hooked. A couple of years later I started to find crafting blogs to follow. This introduced me to the awesome world of Peachy Keen Stamps. I fell in LOVE with their stamps immediately. It was through Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog that I found Emma at My Creative Time. I was always excited to learn from Emma and when she started up her Throwback Thursday Challenges I just HAD to join in the fun as often as possible! Last December Emma announced her new stamp line and I was thrilled. I instantly fell in love with her stamp style. They were the best around, in my opinion, so when she asked me to be on her design team I could not believe it!!! It was a dream come true! I'm SO thankful for Emma and for all of you as well. I'm so inspired by each of you and your creative ideas and talents. It is a blessing to call so many of you my friends!

Emma also asked me to create a project to share with you. I decided to use mostly stamps from the October release for this fun little gift bag.
