Happy Fisrt Birthday

Helloooooooooo ladies!
How's your week going so far? Mine could not be going any better : )
Slowly but surely my dreams are coming true and I am so excited about the changes that will be happening....WOOHOO!!!!!! Now to scrappy stuff. CREATIVE SCRAPPERS has their 100'th sketch up and I could not help myself but to play along.

I got my hands on the new FANCY PANTS RUSTED SUN papers from the PAPER NICHE and decided I was going to scrap a picture of our daughter on her 1'st birthday.
So what do you get when you add

Fancy Pants and Fancy Pants

You get this

Fancy Pants

Fancy Pants

You get your own embellishment at a fraction of the cost : ) and a cool looking page, least in my eyes ; )
I still can not believe that our Princess is no longer our tiny little baby, look at her holding her layout

Fancy Pants

It feels like I blinked and 6 years years passed me by, next thing I know she will be 13 and talking about boys. Oh my!!!! Let me NOT even think that because I am SO not ready to deal with boys ; O
Ok, I need to keep this post short because I now have to go play with the May kit for The Niche and all I'mma say is HOLLY SHMOLLY it's a nice one.
As always THANK you for all your sweet comments, you ladies rock!!! Have a wonderful week.

Happy 90'th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello ladies!!! How was your week? Mine has been crazy crazy crazy but it's all good, at least I had a week right? I always say, any day with my feet above ground is a great day : )
On Monday we celebrated my husband's grandfather's 90'th birthday, yes ladies 90 and let it be known that Abuelo (that's granpa in el spanish) is in better health then a lot of younger people I know. He is on no meds, he still drives and he takes out everyone's garbage and gets all our mail daily, what a blessing!!! He celebrated his birthday surrounded by his children, grandchildren & their spouses, his great grandchildren and his wife aka Abuela whom he's been married to for at least 60 years, one more thing about Abuelo, his mom lived to be 106 years old and recently passed away 3 or 4 years ago in Cuba... can we say WOW? Here is a layout I did of him blowing his candles

I used A PROPER GENTLEMEN, FASHIONISTA and ON THE BOARDWALK, papers by G45, remember that they are double sided so on so pieces I used the back part.

For these cute little swirls, I stamped them on the back of a pizza box and stikled them : )
This is what the stamp set looks like

The set is by Inkadinkadoo that I got at THE NICHE a while ago as well as the papers. One thing about me... I buy buy buy some call it hoarding) and even though I may not use it right away I know sooner or later I will use it, my pages are mostly a reflection of my moods : ) and I don't care if the paper is 1 week old or 1 year old. he heeeee!

Here is another layout I did, it's of me and Mr. Hubby hanging at the park with our girls, our 6 year old snapped this picture of us, she captured us cuddling up on the bench while they were playing. I journaled on the back

The girls paperie

You make me smile, you make me laugh, you make me mad but most of all you make me happy!
You are loving, you are kind, you are understanding, you are patient, you are a great father and a great husband, you are an awesome person and a wonderful son.
I want to grow old with YOU by my side!!! I LOVE YOU!!!

Don't get me wrong, my marriage is not perfect but dang it it is close to it ; )
There are days when a want to choke a brother out but for the 1 day that I feel that way there are 10 days that I love him to death.
The papers are by The Girls Paperie from where else but THE NICHE, I used the MAYA ROAD STAMP for the sewing machine and embossed it with Zing embossing powder.
Well ladies, this is all I have for now, I am still trying to find my groove, I used to be able to make 1 layout a day and somewhere down the line I lost the ability to do so. How do some of you all do it. I see you blog at least 2 to 3 times a week with fabulous layouts. Help a sistah out and share your secret with me : )
As always THANK you for your wonderful comments, they always make my day.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Got wood?

Hello ladies!
How is your weekend so far? Mine has been great/horrible but no need to bore you with the horrible details, all I'm gonna say is that I have enjoyed spending time with family and the horrible part was that I had to make a decision that could have affected my family in a negative way but it was the right decision for my family, I know it makes no sense : )
Anythoot, enough with the boring stuff. Here is what I did for the WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE at entrARTistes. You had to use wood and this challenge could not have come at a better time because I just got my hands on that wood paper by Creative Imaginations at THE PAPER NICHE.


And how cuuuuuuuuute is this fairy???? I got her and the new "the girl's paperie" papers at The Niche too. Not for nothing but that store rocks my world!!! We keep getting new goodies in almost every day and that makes me one happy camper, I don't know if Mr. Hubby feels the same way ; )

OK, this is where I say adios because I need to go get everything ready for tomorrow.
Have a HAPPY EASTER and my your day fantastic!
As always THANK YOU for your sweet comments, you ladies are the best!
