We're excited to have Pattie's Creations sponsoring us this month, YAY!  Pattie's Creations is sponsoring our main challenge prize this month and also provided the beautiful digi images the CDT ladies used on their projects today!

Pattie's Creations has a wonderful collection of designs in her store so do pop over for a look and support our Sponsor.  Here's Pattie Gomez' bio for you to learn more about her!  
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 worked in the Telecommunications field for many years and took an early retirement. One day, I decided to draw my own images to use on my hand made cards and found out that other crafters really liked them. I then realized that I could sell them too. I wanted to create a character that was close to my heart. Well, if you have been following me over the years you know about my characters called Pattieboop and Allie. I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie (My name is Pattie, I always loved Betty Boop and I have a cat named Allie). I had so much fun coming up with different images so I created a store on Etsy to sell them. You can go to my Etsy store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them. A few years went by and I realized that although Pattieboop and Allie were a big hit, I needed to expand my selection of images. I started drawing anything that I could think of pertaining to my two characters. I am always looking for ideas for new images. My imagination was growing at an accelerated pace and I came up with many new images to keep my store afloat. My store now has around 450 images and I hope to add more. I love to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator to enhance my drawings.

Paper Dragonfly’s Creative Design Team have made beautiful Time Flies projects to inspire you using the lovely Dragonflies Fly and Pocket Watch images provided by Pattie's Creations.
