Arte Y Pico Award

"Arte y Pico" is phrase that roughly translates in English to:
"The Maximum. Wow. The best art. Over the top."

The "rules" for the Arte y Pico award are:
1. If you are an award winner, show the award, the name of the person who gave it to you, and link back to his or her blog.
2. Pick 5 blogs you think deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and for contributing to the blogging community.
3. List the author's name and link to his or her blog.
4. Leave a message on the blogs of those you've selected.
5. Link back to the original Arte y Pico blog, so all will know the origin of the award.

I received this fantastic award from Gaal Creative
Anne is a fantastic Photographer...just one of her many talents!
( I don't know the secret for high lighting a name and the link is in
her link IS

and from there you should go see her website that offers some of her fabulous photos for viewing and sale.

All the artwork I see is so fantastic! They all deserve an award to recognize them...!!
I tried to pick those who haven't received this the least the last time I went to see their blog.
here goes:

1. Linda...
2. Dianne...Magpies Envy
3. Jane...Sepia and Glitter
4. Lay... Me Scrap

Don't ask why some of the copy/paste from my site, (that is supposed to house their shortcuts), showed the name or the entire address...and I am totally hoping when I publish this, they link on click...

Everyone I have on blogroll I visit as they update their blog...EVERYONE of them is a fabulous artist!!!
and ALL deserve the award, however many of them have been given this award already...and I want to pass the joy around for someone who might not have been recognized takes for ever to work around to every artist on these groups and I am meeting them as fast as I can! over the last 2 years.

There is sooooo much talent out there and soooo many inspiring, wonderful, sharing artists who blog their projects and give technical instructions and share! their world with everyone.

Visiting a blog to me, is like visiting a good friend...I have been invited to share a common part of our lives together.
I find it is so amazing that I can touch so many to such far away places and not leave my home.

I have so much enjoyed getting to know everyone and picking 5 to recognize was very hard...I want to pick them ALL!

Please start with the 5 listed then peruse the others on the blog roll list, I am sure you will enjoy each visit as much as I do.

I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who follows my blog..leaves me comments and encourages me or gives me feedback and advice. All the interaction is special to me, so...

Thank You.
