Hi fellow card crafty lovers! My name is Raechel, you didn’t guess that from my blog name did you? LOL! I am a 36 year old wife and mother to 1 BEAUTIFUL teenage girl! My hubby and daughter are the loves of my life! I also have a furbaby Chloe an 8 year old Shih-Tzu. I work full time and have been in LOVE with scrapbooking since my little missy was 2!
I discovered the Cricut and subsequently Card Crafting last year and started my blog March 6, 2010! My second post was a submission to the FIRST MPS Design team and I made it into her gallery but not the design team :( I was sad but felt like I had room to grow and thought I will definitely try again! Guess what trying again worked!
I found out live on Robyn’s USTREAM that I made the team YAY! I am still pinching myself! But it is official I am a My Pink Stamper Designer! {totally squealing with delight} What an honor! I am annoy your teenager with hearing about my “official MPS designer status”, hug your hubby yelling “I am a My Pink Stamper Designer”, dance with your dog happy!!

On to the crafty-goodness!
I used 2 brand new to me cartridges for this cutie! AND I was totally inspired by my dancer {daughter} and by My Pink Stamper and my Pink Flamingo Dancer was born. LOL I think she’s just darling! I used a “trim-stlye” ribbon from Joann’s for her cute tu tu…I am so pleased with her I hope you all like her too! Thank you for stopping by enjoy the HOP!
{great big happy hugs}~Raechel
