So very, very sad.................................
I am so sorry I have not been posting, but unfortunately last week my family had a great loss. My Father in law's brother passed away. We were saddened by this obviously because of the loss, but also because Bobby was such an amazing man. He loved his family and was such a happy being.

Here are some layouts that I did for my last 10 page class. Had to keep it simple but I was very happy with the results.
I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE MM STICKERS. THESE ALPHABETS DID NOT ADHERE VERY WELL. I WAS NOT A HAPPY PUERTORICAN....Just saying....
This is one of my ALL TIME favorite layouts...of course it's because my Abuelita is in it.
Oh wow...just wanted to share that I have been stalking this lovely lady's blog for quite a while. Her work is absolutely FANTASTIC.
See for yourself.

Wishing all of you out there who take care of your kids and love them so much that it hurts sometimes a fantastic Mother's Day. The video ABOVE this post is very special. After I viewed it I felt so totally blessed to know I was given the gift of motherhood. It has changed my life. I became a better person, have a better understanding of who I am, and understand what unconditional love is.
Promise to post pics of my day tomorrow.

Ok..this picture is pretty bad, but peeps, I am in a hurry and wanted to do a drive by post. Happy Birthday RIOS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My honey's is almost 50...ok,not true, he has six more years to go but he is getting there 2 years ahead of me...RIGHT IRVING? He, hee,hee!!! (Can you see the background? It's full of all the projects I am picking up NOW because I have my 2nd National Scrapbook Day session tomorrow....I am on a roll peeps. The mojo is definitely in the house.
Wanted to let you know...I switched this class up...of course I did. You know how it is, we tend to interpret stuff differently...I had to add some more stuff cause that's just me. I am very happy with this family book and considering the size it is absolutely worth every penny. I am giving this class again on Saturday, May 16, 2009 from 9am - 12pm.
Got to tell you, I have found a great blog. I really love this blogging world. God has placed some amazing women in my path and the truth is we have become friends. Well, I am going to post on someone tomorrow...has nothing to do with scrapbooking but she is a mom and has the same frustrations as all of us....Oh my goodness, I was rolling on the floor when I read her blog...so tomorrow I shall share the one who i am stalking...he,hee,hee....

is Celebrated today. I thought I mention this as many of you know I am a firm believer in the power of prayer.
I got up this morning and I prayed for the people who are on my list of prayer. Some do not know who I am and some have no idea that I am even praying for them. But that is alright. God knows who they are and their needs, hurts and wants. This list has gotten longer and longer as the years have gone by. Yet one thing I know for certain, there have been so many blessed by prayer....so I shall continue to pray and remember those who can not resolve their own problems....but I guess that is what prayer is all about...when WE CAN'T....GOD CAN. That is why I pray...because HE CAN.
GOD BLESS YOU.
And here is what we worked on this past Sunday. Esther taught us a punch class that was really great. Who knew there were so many neat thing to create with punches?

Got to tell you, I am so loving my pretty stuff in my happy space. My hubby put up one of my birthday gifts...(Sharon, by the way, you got me this...he,hee,hee) this past weekend....Oh how I love my little chandelier. Isn't it pretty? It make me happy.
I have seen a couple of versions of this frame...and this was my take. I placed a picture of everyone in my immediate family...of course the background is pink....

Here is a close up of the bling...pretty cool. Like I said....I love this stuff.
