CSI 111 Wish

Happy Friday Everyone!!!
Time for a new case at CSI, a fun one with yummy colors you won't want to miss!!!
I share my birthday with a few of my daughter's BFF's so I bought cupcakes since this year it fell on a perfect Thursday and we celebrated! 

For my evidence I used sprinkles, all those yummy sequins...animal accent and wood in my owl,
dry embossing around my page, something cone shaped in my background mat. I chose to weave paper with fab words! and 3 of something in my sequins clusters, the 3 girls and their 3 cupcakes!

For my testimony I wrote about about childhood memories

I decided to use the Purple Pumpkin sketch of the month for my page rotating it counterclockwise
and our yummy palette!

Hope you have fun with this one!

Love You

Hi everybody!  I am catching up on favorite places to be like Scrap Around the World, their mood board is a dream of gorgeous colors and gold.  Inspired by them and the hearts I have made my page!
Love bugs is also the theme at CCCB and Charlene asked for a card or project with the word Love in it!
Mercedes had a pajama party this weekend and I took advantage to get some cute photos without her minding.  She was so happy they were " twinsies". I had purchased matching pajamas for her and her doll to give her on Valentine's day, but due to the occasion she got them a bit earlier!

If you can spot them Eila, these are the hearts and stars you gave me GORGEOUS Papirdesignn!!!!
SRM Press new doilies in the back!

I used some Maya Road yummy CB words and solid pink sorbet twine from The Twinery

I used some Inka gold for my hearts

this was so fun to put together, check out the yummy colors, I am going to give a yard of every new color I have (10) to a lucky follower who leaves me a comment!!!

Pirates of the Caribbean

Happy Sunday everyone, we have a new prompt this week by Ros, one I had to go to the dictionary to find a proper definition...


left or deserted, as by the owner or guardian; abandoned: a derelict ship.
neglectful of duty; delinquent; negligent.
a person abandoned by society, especially a person without a permanent home and means ofsupport; vagrant; bum.
Nautical a vessel abandoned in open water by its crew without any hope or intention of returning.
personal property abandoned or thrown away by the owner.
one guilty of neglect of duty.
Law. land left dry by a change of the water line.

After my proper instruction in English this is my take, oh you are going to love this!!!!
As you know I live in the Caribbean and what goes better with sea than pirates?
Yep your heard me right.  The filming crew of the smashing movies"Pirates of the Caribbean" have been filming here again and I got to meet one of their ships in the flesh, err the wood, err the derelict wood...
ready for canons to fire away!!!

the perilous stairs to climb aboard

the crossbones inside

I have to admit this dude is one scary and MASSIVE thing...

more from deck

For a fan of the movie like me this was an amazing adventure, the only thing I missed was meeting Jack Sparrow...
Hope you enjoyed seeing the ship up close with me!




Happy Sunday everyone!
Excuse my  being SOOOO behind on things, ever since I got back I am still not up to date on stuff.  I missed my deadlines on Our Beautiful World, but I am determined to catch up...
Wendy chose repetition as our prompt for today.
Last Sunday we celebrated the birthday of Mercedes cousin in a very trendy place, you might have seen my LO here on coffee.
This place in Old San Juan is like a memorabilia place of the owners of Chocolate Cortés.  They started making chocolate bars to melt and do hot chocolate back in 1929.  Their chocolate had a signature presentation and it was classic CC, it had their name right on it.
To my surprise a whole wall of the place was covered in chocolate molds from floor to ceiling, it was sooo beautiful and clever to recycle some of their old molds that way!
If you look closely you will see the name Cortes right there!

a whole wall!!!

And if you are interested in what is served at the place...
here's their "Chocolate Frio"

theur warm "churros" with of course melted chocolate to dip....

and ohhh the most wonderful cappuccino...

Here are the girls enjoying their Sunday brunch!

Hope you enjoy your Sunday and can't wait to see your" repetition" do share it with us!!!



CSI 108 I love you

Hi everybody!
 Time for a new case over at CSI, it is sooo beautiful you may have to go check it out yourself!
I had so much fun here pulling out my bog, old Fancy Pants stamps, do you remember those? I embossed them in white and loved it! There's also new stamps, like the textural ones from Kaisercraft.  Ancient Basic Grey rub ons, since I was dusting off supplies... and they work brilliantly! Some grungy Tim Holtz for good measure too and to top it all some sweet Bo Bunny pearls in chocolate, yum!

for my evidence, the bird in the photo, the hearts on the swirls and the corrugated cardboard
newsprint on my tissue tape, stamping,, music element,
border punch and rub ons
I just totally LOVE this photo, I was able to capture the dove in perfect flight and the sweet face of my daughter as she fed them!

hearts for my testimony, do you see them in the swirls? I chose the journaling strips for my testimony

and here;s the beautiful new case!
Hope you can make the time to play with us!
