Please put your hands together today and give a warm welcome to Amy Sotolongo! Amy was one of the many people who auditioned for the GlueArts design team and caught our eye! So we asked Amy if she would join us this week as our Guest Designer. We were thrilled when she accepted!!

Here's a little bit about Amy...


I am Amy Sotolongo, a junior high special education teacher by day and a creative soul by night. I have been scrapbooking since 1998 when I was jumping up and down to find my local craft store was now carrying gingham paper, polka dot paper and solids in a variety of colors. I am still amazed at how this lovely hobby emerged into such a wonderful way to express yourself artistically. I love sitting down after a long day and unwinding with paper and glue. I have had the pleasure of being on an in-store design team, a couple kit club design teams and now I teach with one of my best friends at local scrapbook stores. I have been married to the love of my life, Josh for ten years and we love to travel. Over the last two summers I have had the pleasure of visiting Ireland, England, France, Italy and Spain. I have a need to see as much of this world as I can. I also love to bake sweet treats for those I love. A new recipe is always on my counter in hopes of satisfying my sweet tooth. Anything chocolate and I'm sold!


We sent Amy some GlueArts products along with a My Little Shoebox kit and asked her to create away...here's the first of Amy's beautiful projects to share with you!!
