I love good news.

I love new beginnings. I love new ideas and the truth is the thing I love most about my business is teaching. I looooooooovvvveeeeeeeeeeee to teach.

I have so many wonderful things happening that I want to burst with excitement....whoo hooo wheeeee. Lots of new things on the works and I promise to share really, really soon.... as soon as all details are ironed out. Oh dear, I can't wait.

For now, here is one of the layouts I did this past weekend. I changed a bit around from the original and ended up with this LO. I love these letters. They are my all time favorite and man oh man...I hog them...don't even want to use them, but I am really into this heritage album. I got these letters several years ago at Joanne's their brand....and I LOVE THEM.

Look at the details on these letters....Sorry that the pics are so lousy...but hey, this is a drive by

Will post more pics tomorrow. By the way....HERMANAS means SISTERS.

Wow...really busy weekend.

So this is the daughter was totally shocked that we gave her a surprise party on Friday. It was a small gathering with some of her best gal pals. She came into the house and the girls hiding behind the couch screamed SURPRISE!!! She looks totally taken aback and then ask her friends: "What are you all doing crouching behind the couch? They answer back it's a surprise party....Jacqueline then ask "FOR WHO?"

Hey, I had to get creative....there really is no such thing as Twilight party decorations out there yet, so here are some of my renditions)

The girls made these cute little mini clipboards and added a Twilight picture.
It seems that everyone had a great time. I can see that my daughter is truly blessed. She has such lovely friends, and the great thing is that they have known each other since they began school. That is a big deal in my book, since good friends are such a rare thing, I see that my daughter has a group of girls that she admires, enjoys and loves.
Yesterday we had another party for my sister Margie....I did not take pictures...maybe she will post some on her blog and I can steal them...he,hee,hee.
Well, I am off the Toys R Us and then to church. Tomorrow I will post on some goodies that I have completed these past couple of days.
Have a fantastic Sunday.

Handmade cards

If you KNOW me, you know I am a avid card collector. I love cards. I think they are so personal and make a world of difference when giving someone a gift or a simple thank you. I love cards. Doesn't have to be anything major, but just the thought, that someone went out of their way to select a card or even better yet...MADE a card for that is off the chain. Oh yeah, did I mention that I love cards?

I want to share some of the goodness that some very special ladies created.

I love this card. My lovely friend Sharon made this one for my birthday....ohhhh..I love that girl. It's all done with lots of pink...PINK, people...PINK! She even hand painted the cupcake...sigh....

Now this one is a sweet one that made it to the top of my stack....Sharon, again is on a roll this year...She sent me a copy of a CD with my birthday pictures and OF COURSE...sends me this sweet gift along with the CD! (This Sharon chick is a KEEPER!!!)

My lovely friend Vanessa celebrated her birthday by having a Scrapbooking party...hmmm....wonder where she got that bad habit from...LOL.....
She set these beauties on every seating place for every attendee.....aaahhhh...I did not care about the goodies in the adorable goodie bag that she gave us...(SORRY...have no picture of that because I ate all the goodies and re-gifted that freaking adorable tiny was a hit to...the young lady that received that adorable bag that Vanessa made for us, thought I was very talented to decorate her little bag...He,hee, need to clarify I was stealing Vanessa's artwork....he,hee,hee...ssssshhhhhhhh...don't tell. I wont. lol

Love the detail on all of these goodies. That Vanessa is such a talented chick.

I got this one this year for my birthday. Very Classy card from my very classy friend Ady. I LOVE this card. This makes me happy.
I did these envelopes....yes, it is an envelope...what can I say...I am so into the presentation....the stuff outside needs to look just as good as the I was saying, I did these for Ady's Birthday. She thanked everyone with some delicious cards that she made so I made the outside envelope all nice and pretty just like her. I think I added something else to this envelope, but I just can't remember...what can I say, once I create something I am done and I can't even remember most of the time that I actually created the object (I think that is called selective memory...or early Alzheimer's...or maybe that I have so much going on that I am lucky I remember my name...sigh...)

I have a ton of cards and pretty handmade gifts, that I think that maybe every Wednesday I will post some of these lovelies that I have been given or I have created over the years...I'll try peeps.
I am going to call it Creative Wednesday......hmmmmm...a start of something new.
Hope you enjoyed.

Creative Brain overload.........

With ideas, more ideas and MORE IDEAS. Did I mention I have a ton of ideas on my mind right now?
This is what my desk looks like right now.....

I am working on downloading all kinds of eye candy on the blog.
I am working on some really happy bright paper and doing some layouts on my cousins kids. I am also working on some heritage pictures...this is a bit challenging for me as I mentioned yesterday, but I am so loving this process. Documenting the lives of my ancestors is a pretty awesome feeling.
What else? What else? I am working on a Mom Album...I love these's an oldie but a goodie. I am so happy the way this project is turning out. I think some of my favorite projects are the mom albums. These albums are sentimental and mean the world to me....I guess because I have such a wonderful and amazing mom, I simply think about her and what she means to me when I am creating these pages.
So what's on your desk right now? How bad is your mess? Mine is pretty bad....but boy oh boy, does it feel good to create.....I FEEL GOOD!
Happy scrapbooking Amigas.

Happy Easter

I have recently seen a great deal of many changes occurring in my life. From the minute to the colossal. Change is like time...we simply can not stop it and it is not always in our best interest when it comes. People change. The dynamics of relationships change. The course of businesses change. Life changes.

I am a true testament that not all changes started out as a positive in my life. Yet in the end they became positive.
Although I was hurt, this change me me stronger.
Although I lost some to death, this change made me appreciate life even more.
Although they stole from me, this change made me wiser.
Although they lied to me, this change made me choose to do the right thing.

Change is difficult. Not always welcomed.

I have always said that everyone has a story to tell. How we tell our story is how we are defined as people.

Jesus told his story hundreds of years ago.
He changed His life, and in turn He changed my life forever.

Happy Easter (and for those who believe) RESURRECTION SUNDAY!!!!!!!!!!
