Ice Skating Rink

We have had so much snow this past week. It is sooooooo  Cold I can hardly tolerate it. It nice when you can be in and don't have to go out side at all. It is like and ice skating rink in some places.

I am on my way shortly to see if I can buy some boots with warm liners. Pattie image was perfect for this week. I loved the skate and figured why not double them. My add blues to the skates Was a  last minute decision. I decided on blue because of the Skate embellishment.  Our sponsor this week is Patties Creations at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

Pattie Gomez Bio
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 love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.
Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed.
Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief
