Much to share


I hope you had a beautiful Mother's Day, mine was filled with the most beautiful company,
Mom.  And I had the pleasure of knowing the name of my soon to be born nephew. 
Here is a card I made for the Kraft Journal, you know how I love Kraft and I wanted to give something to my daughter's teacher today!
Now brace yourself, this one is long!!!!



 One cute card with bows and buttons for this weeks challenge
Now here is a box my mom made for me, besides doing the box you have to take a peek at what she put inside...
 She learned to make this stitching, she so wanted to learn for a while now.  This beauty just takes my breath away.  Making an inch takes her more than an hour...
 And so you can appreciate the kind of detail mom puts in her work, I used the macro to show you:  Imagine yourself first making the color combo, making the design and then picking each delica sized bead in a needle, one by one, mom I am so honored you have entrusted me with this treasure!
 And of course, she knows me I had to put it on TODAY, this is something she knows me for , impatience, LOL
it feels very good, I may not take it off....


Now this was on the newspaper Saturday at El Nuevo Dia, I know I haven't shared the pictures yet, but
i was saving them for the newspaper to show them first.  I promise I will give you all the close ups later on.


And here is my new nephew, seen through my lens, I can't wait for him to be in my arms, just 8 more weeks...

tiny, precious little hands, so inspiring...

capturing her new masterpiece...

so perfectly cut and lovingly placed...

an old photo revisited with the new October Afternoon papers, they reminded me of bubbles blowing and so I named it Bubble Dreams, I could only imagine them in her precious little head!

Well, thank you for putting up with me and all I had to share today!

What an awesome post, Milagros! I just love sharing in all your happy news. I am in awe of your mother's necklace. She is amazing and it looks so fabulous on you. Loved seeing a photo of you, too, by the way. :) Congrats on the newspaper pub, and love your baby page. And Wow, Wow, Wow on your Kraft Journal card. I SO love the buttons on the bingo card. Brilliant.
