We'd like to welcome today to the GlueArts Blog our first Guest Designer....Pattie Beltran!!! Pattie is one of the talented Design Team Coordinators for My Little Shoebox! And we really enjoyed meeting her at Winter CHA!!

Hi there.  My name is Pattie Beltran.  

I'm a SAHM to two beautiful children and a furry little pom pom.  I love to spend time with my hubby and kids, scrapbooking, reading and all sorts of other crafty goodness.  I love working with My Little Shoebox products  The colors are fun and bright and the images are sweet and whimsical.   My new favorite product is the Cardstock Stickers  The stickers are so cute and made of this really heavy weight cardstock and are oh so sticky!  I'm also a little addicted to the Mini Alphabet Stickers too- but, shhh, don't tell anyone.   

Regardless of which My Little Shoebox line I get to play with, I know I will be inspired.
