I am so pleased with all the goodies I am putting together. I really like the stuff I am creating. THE MOJO IS IN THE HOUSE!!!!

Here are some minis I worked on for some really special kids.

These minis are super easy to do and honestly you can custom them to fit about any occasion. They took me approximately 1/2 an hour to do once I got the whole thing going. I did 37 in total. The kids loved them, and honestly, They saw a year in review and thought it was a pretty cool gift. (I left plenty of space so the kids could journal their own stories). I cut a 12x12 cardstock in four and whualllaaaa!!! You got yourself a cute simple little mini album. Great gifts my friends!!!
Yesterday was my mom's birthday. I am so grateful to my mom as she is the most amazing women I know. She has taught me what a women is all about. She has so many wonderful qualities and is one of the funniest people I know. She has taught me strength, courage, love, family bonds, perseverance, and a constant faith in God. She is my hero. I hope I can turn out to be 1/2 the woman she is. I love you mom!

Dont forget to post on both my blog and Margies, as we will choose two winners tonight...for some delicious goodies.

Ladies, I have not posted...because...WE HAVE NO CABLE!!!! It's a little crazy here in South Florida, and honestly, it's been a drag. I have soooooo much stuff to post and it's a bit difficult blogging when I have to come to my sis' home. Try going to some one's home every day, just to post!!! Crazy!
Anyway, here are some pics from the June Main kit by the very talented Margie: ENJOY!!!!

One of the reasons I LOVE these Lay Outs are the simplicity and the amount of journaling on each page!!!! I really like how the pictures are the one's that speak and the beautiful paper simply enhances her images. The text (journaling) on each page expresses the feelings that are invoked in Margie, and I love that she allows the reader to glimpse into what SHE sees when you view these layouts....isn't that scrapbooking at it's best? When you pick up an album, and know what is going on and who is who? LOVE IT!!!!

Due to great demand, I have made smaller kits from THIS SAME JUNE KIT. I will post them tomorrow (with the contents) Comcast, me and the good LORD permitting...Margie too, as it her home I am invading here...(If she doesn't open the door...we are all out of gas).
By the way, I was going to post the pics for the July kit, but unfortunately I left my camera at home when I came over HERE to blog!!!! UUUGGGHHHH!!! (Screaming very loudly here) can you hear me?

WOW...just when you thought everything was under control....

NOT!!!! Well now, where do I begin? This weekend was spent getting organized, FLIPPING my lovely friends and design team, getting ready for a ton of wonderful stuff I am planning on sharing with you my lovely peeps.

So, what happened you may ask?

1) We have NO Internet access. They have no idea when they are going to fix this problem. THIS IS A PROBLEM FOR ME!!!! So if I have not answered emails, or order questions...this is why!!!

2) MY A/C UNIT is NOT WORKING!!! THIS IS A PROBLEM PEOPLE!!!! A/C in Miami, is equivalent to heating for people up north or in cold parts of our country. As my lovely friend Lou would say it is rather difficult dealing with the 1000% humidity factor in Miami. YIKES.

So no a/c, no Internet, no cable....Margie told me that maybe GOD IS TRYING TO TELL ME SOMETHING....


I am presently blogging from Margie's this is going to be a packed pics...but lots of info.

1) I will begin blogging on a daily basis...(Hopefully beginning tomorrow) to show some sort of scrap booking something, something...

3) In the month of August, I will begin a special project. I am going to be featuring 5 designers a week for 4 weeks in August. HOW DOES THIS WORK you may ask? Well now, I am going to give 5 people per week the same exact supplies...they are going to design two different layouts for me and I will post them daily. I am dying to see what people come up with....many of you have been asked already to participate....and some of you will be getting calls from me (Or emails) very soon.

4) I will hold a RAK (Random Acts of Kindness) every two weeks. They are going to involve all kinds of tune in.

5) I am planning a retreat!!!! WHOO HOOO! This is making me very happy as I have been thinking about this for the last 5 years and simply have not done it...but I am in the works with some pretty amazing people and staff soooooo I shall announce the exciting news as soon as I can get the details all sorted out.

6) The kit club is going well, and I shall be posting the JULY kit this coming we9) k.

7) The Mom class has been rescheduled as all the attendees have been advised.

8) The 12 hour crop is almost sold out again peeps...WWHHHOO HOOO! The Goodies are pretty delicious if you ask me!

9) Scrap Pink is filling up rather quickly (September) I am going to cut off the attendance at 12...I am not sure if I want to do more than that...I will keep you posted.

WELL PEEPS...GOTTA GO...The A/c people are supposed to start getting home at 9am.

Thanks Margie for opening your door this morning so that I could blog!

Hugs and send a prayer for me...I would really appreciate it.

Happy FATHER'S Day everyone. I just want to take a minute and thank some absolutely wondeful fathers in my life.

This is my dad. He is the best daddy any girl could ever ask for. He is an amazing man who loves the Lord and taught 5 kids that through Christ...everything is possible. My dad has taught me honor, fidelity, love, compassion, forgiveness, friendship, and a love for GOD that has only enabled me to deal with amazingly difficult and hurtful situations in my life. Since I was a little girl, dad always told me I could achieve pretty much anything in life, if I simply wanted it bad enough. I have always known I am loved. He holds his family first in his life and has taught all his children to honor our familial bond He is an amazing man who honors his family on a daily basis. I LOVE YOU DADDY! He is my favorite dad.

This is my dad and my uncle Everaldo. Tio Eve, (pronunced avay) is one cool dude in my book. He is super quiet when it comes to super serious situations in the family, but he would do anything for his 4 beautiful daughters and his wife. He is funny and one of the sweetest men you will ever meet. You know he loves you no matter what. He has taught me that it is never too late to mend fences and to honor relationships. He is one my favorite dad's.

My uncle Raul is an amazing dad. His heart of full of gold and honestly, he is such an amazing interesting person. I can talk about ANYTHING with this man. He is so freakin' cool. He loves his 3 children unconditionally, and has instilled the love of family in them. He is one of the most generous persons I know..that is including the spiritual, financial and emotional realm. He is one of my favorite dads. (I'm sorry...his pic did not download!!!!)
This is Irving my brother in law. WOW...How I love this guy. He is such a great dad. He loves his kids with all his heart. He is such an example to those little ones, and let me tell you...they watch him! (those kids have heart shapes in their eyes when they look at He is an honorable man and loves God with all his heart. It shows in his daily life and you can see it physically when he interacts with his children. He is one of my favorite dads.

This is dad and my husband Richard. Well, now, what can I say about Rios....
He has taught our children to love God above everything else. He has such a special relationship with Elijah, that it's pretty cool to see those two hang out. They play a ton of games and are ALWAYS HORSING AROUND!!! He loves his kids unconditionally and they know it. He is learning to be a better dad to a young girl and her growing mood swings. He is able to change and accept that children are on a road of constant change and growth. He is wise to comprehend that we are the foundation on which they grow. He is a constant in their lives and shows them that it is ok to make mistakes, because you can always go back and make them right. He is an amazing dad to our kids. Who knew he would be such a fantastic father? I DID. He is my second favorite dad...because he gave me my children.
