Tu Fe "Your Faith"

Just a note, to my shockness, this LO was picked as a featured work by the lovely team of OUAS, I get to be in their banner this week, sooooooo happy!!!!!!

This past Sunday was my God Daughter's comunion.  We went to chrurch to share that special moment with her. My little one was very into it as she is taking catecism every Friday @ church.  So this was a special moment for her faith, hence the tittle.
The May 15th challenge over @ Once upon a sketch is a beautiful sketch by
Nadia and the special request was something I never do:Journalling criteria: Your journalling should be typed (and remember it should be at least 1-2 lines long).
not the long part,  I manage to write more than a couple of lines all the time.
The challenge was the "typed" part.
this is the result, I have to say I feel so PROUD, it looks so polished, I can not believe I was able to pull it through.  Should have put all the process into  pictures, because I did it after cutting the doily from the PP paper, LOL.

Of course I then went ahead and did a bunch of stamping to further embellish the typed journaling.

Here is the finished LO I think it looks a lot like the sketch.

This was a lot of fun, now go over and give it a go at the challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!


Carta de mama

 OMGGGGG I was picked as today's gallery fave with my LO, thank you ladies so much this is my first entry!



Carta de Mamá by Milagros C. Rivera

I was working on some machine stitches whan I realized I used 3 doillies instead of one.  I decided to change the direction of the LO and write a heartfelt letter to my daughter.  Tucked inside those pages is something for herto read later on, in the meantime it has been sealed with a kiss from mama! I transferred the photo to canvas to work with the dreamy effect the Butterfly collection papers from Pink Paislee .
Estaba trabajando en esta página cuando me di cuenta que había cosido mas "doillies" de la cuenta, 3 para ser precisa.  Decidí que iba a cambiar el giro de la página  a escribirle una carta a mi hija, así que luego de escribir desde mi corazón,  la cerré con un lazo y  la sellé con un beso.  Aquí puedes ver el detalle de como la cerré.
detalle de un botoncito de nácar cosido a mano!
Y aquí el LO final, here is the finished piece:


tu sonrisa

Webster's, Prima, some stamps, some handwork, some sewing, some fuzzy cutting...

I just came from India, well visiting my friend Anupama!!!  please go and visit her blog, see her glorious photos and learn a bit from her culture and traditions.


Dive In

My goodness, thanks to Ross I can recover what Blogger lost, Happy Friday the 13th everybody!  I made 2 LO's for the By the sea Challenge at CCCB, here they are, with the water in all its glory, turquoise, perfect Dive In...Gilligan's Island southwest of Guanica, PR

 Now a second version of the same glorious day, here we are celebrating our free time on spring break!

And I kept thinking about the buttons and bows challenge over @ the kraft journal and I remember last year I made a senior prom dress, so I wanted to make a little girl's dress this time.  full with ruffles, tiny mother of pearl buttons and a gross grain bow, so fun creating on paper!
I used layer upon layer of punched edges to make the ruffles

Now on the original post I had included other images, I will repost them later, have an awesome weekend!


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...
sketch # 237 pencillines

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!


Happy Mother's Day

yep, it is upon us, this Sunday we will be giving honor to all those mamas that are significant to all of us, the ones that make us who we are today!  Mami te quiero mucho!!!!!
I made another present container inspired by a box I saw At Victoria's Secret to hold gift cards, it had so many intricate folds I needed to make one.  I used Fancy Pants, It's the little things paper, it is a pretty damask, in a vintage color that looks so elegant.  I paired with guess what?  PINK what can I do there is pink in my life...Then I made a lunch bag Kraft stock tag with the sweetest Prima stamp, the girl holding the bunch of flowers, it reminds me of the bows my mom used to make and put in my head, my unruly blonde curls, and the fancy dress with the petticoat underneath.  I attached with with some girls paperie twine in pink, LOL so I hope this brings some inspiration I made it for the Kraft Journal.

told you she was sweet!

Fabulous Betsy Veldman showed the tecnique to double emboss in her blog, I just couln'dt wait to give it a try.  I have to say I loved the results.  Go check her blog for all the details I promise you you will love her work!
You see it looks like silver jewelry. I would like to enter my tag in the pixiedustpaperie challenge!

Here is the final tag I used the new Jenni Bowlin chipboard and covered it with lunch bag Kraft, used some Girls Paperie paper, flower, double satin ribbon and twine to write mama.
Have a great week, maybe I will post some more soon!
