And another one........

Best Friend Blogger Award.

I can't believe that I just got another blog award. Tammy over at: http://thepurplemuse.blogspot.com/, just passed it on to 5 very talented ladies and I am one of those.

With accepting this award I must share one thing about myself. I have done lots of crafts in the past like, ceramics, drawing, knitting, crocheting but the only one that has stayed with me has been scrap booking. I love anything that has to do with paper. I love to go back and see all the pages of my kids, husband, dog and family. Also, I have been able to meet some very talented ladies through the blogging world. I am so glad that I decided to start up a blog. I was pushed by several people to start one up but I was always hesitant. I am now so glad that I did because I love it.

I have to pass this award on to 5 ladies.

1. Paula @ http://ivyandelephants.blogspot.com/
2. Marlene @ http://www.uniquelyella.blogspot.com/
3. Mercy @ http://mercyspages.blogspot.com/
4. Tewshy @ http://touchoftewshay.blogspot.com
5. Yeya @ http://www.2creativechics.blogspot.com/

Ladies please go visit Tammy @ http://thepurplemuse.blogspot.com/.

Hope you all are having a fabulous day.


Again thank you Tammy for this award.

Layouts, layouts and more layouts.

I have been really busy creating in my room. Love it. Since last week I have been layout crazy. I have tried to finish one daily.  Here are the ones I have done so far.

 I found this picture in my box of photos and thought I had to scrap it. My youngest loved going under water and making bubbles. I thought this shot was so perfect. So I decided to scrap it for her album.
 This layout is of my youngest daughter 5 years ago when she turned fifteen. This picture was taken at the studio. The latins celebrate 15's with a huge party. She decided she wanted a party instead of a trip. The paper pieced little girl is a design from MYBELLA. http://mybellastamps.blogspot.com/. Check out her blog and the beautiful paper piecing she does.
 Here is my oldest (now 22), at the beach. I don't know what she was thinking or what was told to her to have that expression on her face. It is a very simple layout.
 This is one of my favorites. I saw this layout in a magazine and new immediately that I would be scrap lifting it. I had so much fun with this layout.
 My oldest daughter loves to smile in front of the camera. Here she is doing what she did best.
 This picture was taken at the grandparents house. They have a lake and she loved jumping in. Here she had taken chips from someones plate (can't remember who's) and then ran towards the lake, but when she came up from under water she was missing one. LOL.
Love this picture of my youngest sleeping. This was the only time she was quiet. Very simple and not much color, but thought it came out nice.

Well this is what I have been creating lately. Hope you all can get inspired with them. Will be back with more layouts once they are done.

HAPPY 4th of July everyone

Hope you all are having a wonderful day. I can't complain. I have been pampered like no tomorrow. They took me to breakfast and then shopping for our vacation. What girl would not be happy?

Here are some pictures of my door decoration and our FLAG. Boy do I love this country. We have Freedom and Independence.  Oh, and lets not forget Justice. What more could we ask for?

God BLESS our USA. Hope you all have a safe 4th.

something so true

I saw this in someones blog and thought that I just had to have it. I thought it was so cute and so true, atleast for me it is. If anyone wants it just copy and paste on your blog. I definitely got a huge kick out of it.

That is all for now, but I will be back with some layouts I have done since wednesday. Just been too busy around here with other projects, shopping and spending time with hubby to sit and post. Sorry for abandoning my followers.
