Introducing Lucas Miguel

JULY 1st CHALLENGE is up at OUAS and it is just the perfect sketch and opportunity to introduce you to my first nephew, Lucas Miguel Rivera Vera!
He was born on July 30, 2011 to my brother and his wife, healthy, big and gorgeous!
So by meeting the sketch's criteria I will introduce him to you through Nadia's sketch.
Journalling Criteria: Who is in the photo? Name the person in the photo and at least 1 fact about them. This can be personality, character, talent , achievement etc. but it must be at least 2 sentences long
my handsome new prince Lucas

notice the looove and tears in his eyes as he meets him for the first time!!!
 Here is my full take on the sketch

And I also wanted to give you some other BIG news for me...As I was driving to the hospital, well on a traffic jam on the way to the hospital, I was catching up with my emails.  That's how I found out I made the
CCG Design Team!!!!!!!!  Everybody in the team is so amazingly talented .Talk about dreams come true! If you have never seen the site go on and sign up using the link I gave you, you will be amazed at how you will see color in a new way, in their own words:
"Color Combos Galore is going to help you invite your creative muse to play with a new approach to our challenges. It's where color coincides with creativity. We invite you to delve deeper into creativity each week and discover inspiration through new eyes, allowing you to open new doors to creativity, where color and imagination meet inspiration."

I love that I don't have a sketch that I get to be inspired by a palette and an inspirational photo... This was my entry to the new challenge.  You are welcome to go and participate, I know you will love it!

This is vintage me, LOL mom was pregnant, well almost due with my brother!
  And this is a card I made inspired by the palette and by one of my favorite challenge blogs CCCB where Ros created an awesome sketch!
PS to Linda! I hope you find some of the goodies you sent me already put to good use ;)
Well thanks for reading all my news I hope if you stop here from USA you have a glorious 4th of July with amazing fireworks

Dear Milly!!! Querida Milly!!!
Congratulations on your 1st nephew and DC Spot. Felicitaciones por tu sobrino tanto para ti, tu hermano, cuñada y orgullosa abuela Claribel. Como tía se que eres excelente ya que quieres a todos los hijos de tus amigas como si lo fueran. Si Yo pudiera escoger una tía para mis hijos te escogería a ti ya que hubiéramos sido hermanas en otra vida. Como artista eres excelente y tus talentos envidiable para muchos por tu versatilidad. No se si este post bilingüe te sea útil pero cuando hablo del corazón me gusta hacerlo en español al igual que cuando te hablo del alma. El LO tuyo con tus papas esta bellisimo y ahora con la muerte de abuela me he dado la tarea de recopilar fotos con ellas y otras de mi niñez; así que una vez mas eres una gran musa para mi. Gracias por ser una excelente maestra y una bella inspiración para todos los que amamos este multy media art. Un arte nuevo aun creciente. Te extrañe el jueves pasado por la clase de las nenas, pero ya se por que... Me imagine que algo grande había pasado! Lyana lloro porque no habia clase y se quedo preguntando todo el fin de semana por ustedes!!! Tocas a grandes y a chicos tambien. AWESOME WORK KEEP IT UP!

Lydibel said...

In the CCG you are the first one or only one from Puerto Rico WOW!!!
Totally AWESOME! We are very proud of you titi Milly!
