Halloween Friends


Hola Amigas! Did anyone miss me? Sorry I have been away for a couple of days. My little ones were sick. Joaquin with pneumonia, then ear infection and lastly virus...Solimar with her asthma...Pobrecita. Its really BAD. Well here I have some friends for you to meet. I made the FrankenBOY and FrankenGIRL for my godson Gabriell's classroom. He was doing a diorama..REMEMBER THOSE! of a Frankenstein lab and I thought how cute to accompany his project with matching goody bags (inspired by Gretchen Barron)...and then of course his brother and my other godson Aramis wanted bags so I made him the Ghosts...Except that in order for him to receive his goody bags he had to make me a PomPom frog...Well MORE GOOD NEWS! well for me anyways...I met Spanish demonstrators for the first time...They are truly talented group of women...They are also currently running a tour. Inkspired Tour. They all have the tag on the right hand side of their blogs which are in Spanish but they also have Google translators on their blog as well. The first tour starts with Martha Lucia. ENJOY! Gracias Martha Lucia por tu amistad!

Monogram Sweet for Dr. Sachs




Good Morning Chicas! How is everyone? I can't believe how cold its getting. BRRR! Well I took Joaquin to the doctor's office YET AGAIN! He has an ear infection. Pobrecito! Poor Baby! And Solimar's allergies are bad...Her ecxzema is HORRIBLE! My little ones! On a good note...I got to meet a sideline, MaryAnn! Very Nice! and I met her daughter Casey. She and Solimar HIT IT OFF! Of course Joaquin was crying and the house was a mess...SORRY MARYANN! I made these monogram for Dr. Sachs. Remember she is a close family friend and co-worker with hubby. I love the Real Red and Very Vanilla combo. I never combined these two and boy are the BEAUTIFUL! Instead of a usual card box I made this cute card holder using Dannie's tutorial. Its a coincedence that I found her blog as she is my Holiday Exchange Partner and I didnt even know she had a blog. Wouldn't these make a great gift for someone special in your life?

Getting Ready for Christmas

Hola Amigas...How is everyone? I am doing well, except I am still sick along with my little ones. I bought this set awhile ago and yesterday was the first day the poor thing saw ink...I need to start making my Christmas cards because tomorrow marks 11 weeks until Christmas...I dont know how that happened it was just summer, and school just started we haven't even seen Halloween yet. But you know it will fly SUPER FAST! I have not ordered the stamp set Four the Holidays yet so I haven't stamped a greeting on the front...I love this set from the New Holiday Mini...It has Happy Holidays, Peace on Earth, Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings..I am going to make this in various color schemes. My second pic I tried to take a close up so you can see how super SHIMMERY it is IRL. I stamped the medallion with Night of Navy and then used my sponge dauber to add Champagne Mist Shimmer paint from Holiday Mini 2009.

Trick or Treat Backpack



Hola Amigas...I made 14 of these cute backpacks for Solimar's classroom. I have them filled with spider rings, tatoos and Solimar SAFE candy. After making the first one the rest were really east to make. I used the tutorial on SCS. I sealed the smaller flap so that you can't open it. And under the bigger flat I put magnets so it will be easier for the children to open and close.
