Project Rock Star!!!

Hellllooo dear friends and a very happy Saturday to you all!
Welcome to PROJECT ROCK STAR, a blog hop in honor of our dear friend Gabby Arriaza, designing guru and blog owner of Confessions Of A Stamper.
Gabby is a dear, sweet, giving friend whom I met on SCS a loooong time ago. I loved her personality, honesty, optimism, and admired her incredible talent. She has been featured on so many company blogs, I don't have enough room to name them in one blog posting! ;)
A group of us got together to celebrate Gabby and let her know that we LOVE her dearly and are here for her through thick and thin.
In other words, she is my ROCK STAR!

 

In fact, this image was designed for her by Cynthia Liu over at Paper Makeup Stamps. My layout is Gabby's awesome sketch over at PMS' blog. All proceeds of this stamp (there are 2 other sentiments as well) go to Gabby and her family, how awesome that we can make a difference in someone's life through crafting!
Here is a closer look at Moody for Rock:

 

Eeek! I broke out the bling in honor of Gabby! And isn't that a gorgeous image? Well, I am also giving her away to ONE lucky winner just by commenting today. No {guitar} strings attached - just leave a comment and I will randomly draw a winner on Monday morning. (I would really appreciate it if you all spread the word about this wonderful digi stamp, as well as coordinating sentiments that were created for Gabby!)

There is a nice sized group of us on this hop, including 4 wonderful friends who have linked up to their galleries: 
Yoorah       Julie        Manda    Sarah

Be sure to visit their links to see their awesome tribute to our Rock Star! One of the friends below is even offering some awesome BLOG CANDY for today. Be sure to hop through - there's a Martha Stewart border punch and stamps up for grabs!
And next on the blog list is Whimsie Doodle extraordinaire and one of Gabby's designing buddies:

Thank you for coming by today and celebrating her with us, we love you Gabby!

Hey Joni! I haven't been around much in blogland lately, but I have been checking in with our dear friend Gabby. YOU are awesome to be doing this for her! I will spread the word about the digis for Gabby, and I will be hopping along to see all the wonderful creations for Gabby's hop too! I hope to be stopping by here more often but it may not be for a couple more weeks. The DH is on a TDY and being a single mom for now is taking up SO much of my time! UGH! Fantabulous creation, I love the colors and bling!
