May day

Thank you ladies for picking my project, love your new button too!

May Day is tomorrow and I am sending you flowers... I wish I could ring your doorbell, hang my cone of flowers and start running. This is the next best thing.  So happy May Day tomorrow, this is made for the Kraft Journal, using the new release from Hambly

Here it is hanging, full of crepe flowers little Miss Mercedes made!

Now May is also Mother's Day month, and I know of a couple of moms that would be very happy to get these.   Since I was so inspired with the Kraft and Pink I though
I would enter 2 of my pieces this week at the Kraft Journal and since the girls at CCCB have a Mother May I challenge I will enter my cards and my candy container as well...

I played dress up with this dressform!


Picture Perfect

Fill this up with mother in mind, you can use almonds, chocolate, gum, whatever mom fancies...
CCCB challenge this week is Mother May I, here is a gift for Mother using a recycled box and some scraps.
Here are some LO's that have kept me busy, some of them are from the pictures I shared with you

I will take a few days

off, in the meantime I will leave you with some inspiration...
I had the privilege of looking at this upclose it is a Brownea grandiceps or Rose of Venezuela in my moms garden

Yesterday we found a plastic bag with a mama coqui  protecting a nest of eggs and babies.  This frog is endemic to our island of Puerto Rico, and the name comes from the sound it makes.  It is incredible how nature will always find a way! and the garden snail shell will give you a clue about the size of this very small frog.

 This property is an old sugar plantation in the north side of the island, Hacienda La Esperanza, it is one of those places rich in history that you need to see

 this just appened to be on the restaurant we had lunch, they were expecting a wedding party, I just would dream of marrying here!
 This is an old bridge in the town of Ciales
Some glimpses of my Puerto Rico for you! Hope you have a great week, I'll be posting soon!


Feature Me Friday: 6 year old Mercedes

As seen on the kraft journal today, isn't the mommy proud?  You Betcha!!!!

Feature Me Friday: 6 year old Mercedes

Each week we choose one project submitted to one of our challenges to feature on The Kraft Journal "Feature Me Friday" post sponsored by Kraft Outlet. This week we our featuring an adorable Easter Basket created by 6 year old Mercedes. Mercedes' mommy features her basket as well as the mother/daughter combination of baskets they made together at the Paper Boutique Scrapbooking Studio blog. We are simply delighted to share this creation put together by such a young crafter... it is obvious that artistic abilities run in this family!


of friends and gates

Well this weeks challenge at CCCB calls for a gate.  Welcoming friends with a pink gate on a gatefold card here's my entry
 don't you just love the little chicks peeking in the front of a hand cut gate?
 little rabbits to greet you inside...
Today was a glorious day, for the past 4 years we have been going to an annual kite flying day @ Las Croabas beach in Fajardo.  It is organized by my DD school teachers.  Today was just so pretty, you be the judge

 The art teacher made an outdoor exhibit of the childrens work , isn't that cool, they were flying in the wind
 Here of course is little Miss M with her project
 Cobito's close up, ever since the new cat, that is all she sees everywhere, never mind she draws him with a flower in his ear!  Ah creative license...
 and who could blame her for going in the water when it was sooooooooooo perfect!


Easter is coming

Such a welcoming week, it means so much to us, plus we get a lot of time with the kids!  This is what you will find right now at my scrap table, such a sight!
Having fun with stamps, inks, markers, she made Audrey's basket

And her mama made this card for the Kraft Journal, ever since I saw the painting on craft I wanted to give it a try.  It is all fuzzy, underneath a blaket of die cut felt.

And here is a LO that had me busy for a while today, I took some photos of Mercedes this weekend that were so precious and I loved the end result.
Girl, Size 6...TCR palette #54  I am totally in love with this BG paper that looks like "moire fabric"
