Family Friday Crazy Crew #2!!

Hi Everybody!
SUPER excited today to get to introduce Crazy Crew #2 of my awsome Family Friday Designers.  Here's a little bit about them, followed by their project they made (You can click on their names to go to their blogs!)

***Bonus projects from Crazy Crew #1 coming later today!***

Crazy Crew Member #6 - Erika Valdez

I am married ( 11years now), I have 5 kiddos 2 girls and 3 boys ages 12, 10. 7. 5, and a very hyper 1 year old lol. I have a neice and nephew, they are the joy in my life!!

I have been crafting for about 5 years now, it started with scrapbooking then when I became a preschool teacher I began to make things to decorate my classroom and bulletin boards, I was so good at it that they had me doing it for all the centers!! But it really took off when I got the love of my life lol the cricut!!

I am in my 2nd year of college to become an art teacher, It involves two things I love kids and creating!!

Me and my children are very close and I enjoy spending time with them, in the summer we would sit at the table for hours with the cricut and they would go crazy and make things from cards to decorating folders etc. Everytime I sit down to create something they all sit and watch and give their suggestions. My Hubby even entered MOMO's Hubby challenge and my oldest daughter helped me make a card for a challenge, she has actually become my crafting sidekick! I have decided that for each project I will have one of my children help me create it! I am always so super busy and this will give me a chance to have some one on one time with each of them! ( yes even my baby boy is going to help, look for the project with a chewed corner!!)

Here's Erika's first DT projects (go to her blog for all the details on these amazing projects!!):

Crazy Crew Member #7 - Nicole

My name is Nikki I am a stay at home mom of 2 awesome kids, a 13yr old daughter and 3yr old son. I have been crafting since 2006, when my son was born a friend gave me a babys 1st year scrap book and that's how all the madness began. We have a family office/craftroom which is our favorite room in the house and we tend to spend a lot of time in together wether it's working on individual projects, crafting together or reading.  

Here's Nicole's amazing project:

Crazy Crew Member #8 - Abby

Hello all, I am Abby from Scrapbookaholic By Abby! I have been scrapbooking for many years but it was last year that I took it VERY seriously! I love this art!! To me this is what it is. I love blogging also... can you tell?! I am a Spanish teacher but currently stay at home full time!!! I have been married for 15 years this December! He is such a wonderful man that supports my hobby! My four children are one of my main inspirations. I have a 13, an 11, a 9 and a beautiful princess of almost three!

I accepted with joy to be part of this team because my kids love art! Specially my 9 year old. I am sure we will have many fun projects for you!

Here's Abby's great project:

Crazy Crew Member #9 - Raven

OKay so...I have been crafting with paper for almost two years now. My
"old" favorite mediums were yarn and paint. My hubby and I have four
amazing kids together! Family is everything in our house so the kids
are involved with just about everything. They have their own section
in the craft room including their own table, embellishment center, and
paper section (which is a hot mess most of the time). But, I know that
I can't be clean and creative and so they have some leeway there. All
of my kids are extremely creative and they teach me things daily that
I thought I knew. I LOVE IT!

Here is Raven's super cute project:

Crazy Crew Member #10-Rhonda

I have been married for twenty-eight years to a wonderful man. I have two sons 27 and 25. I have been crafting since high school. I just started crafting with my cricut two years ago and just havent stopped. I love it so much.
