I must confess that the turtles on Bugaboo are my very favorites of all of the animals. I do love the bears, penguins and frogs too (dont tell them), but the turtles are so adorable! I bought a whole set of them!! Im so glad you used the birthday turtle and did such a great job coloring it.

Thanks for being part of this great blog hop..its wonderful!

Hola mi amiga! Lola (You know what I'm singing in my head every single time I type your name, don't you?), everything about your projects is a delight! It's funny, but I always see them, and then I *really* see them, and then I'm amazed. Little details like the two colors of sponging, the shiny balloons, and the shading just blow me away at second glance. I'm so happy that you're on the DT because you're such an amazing talent! Thank you so much for everything that you do for Bugaboo Stamps! MWAH!
