The Royal Blog Tour is almost here... I am going to feature the set Quinceañera from Celebrando Creatividad. A Quinceañera is a girl who is celebrating her Sweet 15. This is the custom for all of us Latinos/Hispanics. This is a coming-of-age celebration for young latinas. This celebration starts with a mass and has many traditions/rituals that are followed. For example. the quinceañera wears flats all day until it is time for her father to remove them and replace them with heels. Another may be the first time for her to wear make-up. This celebrations is like a mini wedding. We choose 7 girls and 7 boys to be in our court. They have changed over the years. I have recently attended a couple and now they have become theme oriented. Recently, I attended a fifties theme and a Phantom of the Opera theme. I am looking forward to planning my daughter's in 11 years...YIKES! I should start now....

Another Swing Card...

Hola Amigas! How is the weather? Here it is beautiful...We went for our usual morning walk and what a relief it was nice and cool. The picture on top is Solimar with her cousins/godbrothers Aramis and Gabriell. These three are like "THREE" peas in a pod. They are always together...Either here with me or with my FAV SIL Renee. My card is a swing top card. I used the Lots of Bots stamp that says Error I'm Sorry...I made this card for the girls over at SUDEMOONLY for our JUNE CCS. I originally made them another Lots of Bots card but I used a Cuttlebug EF which is illegal...Sounds so criminal, right? So I have to send them another as a replacement. I love the way Pale Plum looks with the Razzleberry. You also have to love the new in color ribbons as one side is plain and the other is polka dot. Its like getting to ribbons for the price of 1. Today we have a birthday party to go to but we won't be staying long as Aramis is not feeling well. OMG! I almost forgot to tell you he went to see Obama at a speaking engagement here in Jersey on Friday. He said it was amazing...There was only about 17, 500 tickets but over 3 million people applied...Dont quote me on the numbers...but it was something exagerated like that...

Beach and Gabi's Invites

Hola Amigas! What a beautiful day! We decided to go to the beach. It was gorgeous. Not to hot not to cold. As you can see Joaquin and Solimar had a great time. We bought this pool for Joaquin so that he doesn't play in the sand...and for us not be in the water constantly. He is such a water baby. Solimar was making sand cakes of all shapes and sizes. Yummy! The last pic is the birthday invitations that I made for my neice Gabriella's 1st birthday. What do you think? The invitation opens on the top. I closed it with the slit punch. Now off to make her favors. What do you think of my watermark. LOVE IT. My friend Julie Semones made it.
