I got some nice gifts and then we went to eat on the waterfront in New Hope, PA. Food, drink and company was FABULOUS!

Hola Amigas! How are you on this very HOT HOT HOT day! It has been sweltering here in Jersey. I am in TOO many swaps. The theme this month on VC Rocks is Anything But A Card (ABC). So for two of the swaps I made the Fabric Pins using the Flower Folds sizzix die. For the two other ones I am making a Kleenex Tissue holder that I learned how to make from Madeline Morcelo and the other project is a paper wallet. I will show pics of those later on. Now off to play with the little ones in their pool...

Now which base color to use...and do you see Señor Asqueroso...he has the same outfit he had 3 weeks ago..Cochino/Pig! I am going to have to burn that outfit.
I am going to emboss all the whisper white pieces using Finial Press. I wonder if the new catty has new embossing folders...
I just noticed my pics don't have my watermark...What is up with that...What program do you recommend. I am using Win Watermark...Oh ok, back to my card.

Just keep layering, Just keep layering...
Now I sponged Ballet Blue and Green Galore on Glossy White...I wanted to add Crushed Curry but I can't find it...Oh Well!
I then stamped my image with Inspired by Nature and I also cut out a couple of butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit. and here is my masterpiece...I used Mojo Sketch 142. The butterfly's antenae is a sliver of crushed curry.

Stamp A Holics 126-Scrapbook Challenge

Hola Amigas! How are you? I can't believe its Friday and a beautiful day at that. Tonight we are going to my neice's softball game. It's the last one for the season...Well today is my turn to host our Stamp A Holic challenge. It's a scrapbook layout. What do you think? Come on and play.
When I created this sketch I knew I wanted to add Solimar and Joaquin when they were born and a combo of recent pics...Let's see what magic I can brew.
As typical as it is I am going to use Pretty in Pink and Soft Sky (retired). I need a base color and some coordinating colors.
The coordinating colors I am going to use is Wild Wasabi (returning In Color) and Apricot Appeal. This was a little tough for me as Joaquin was in an oxygen "house" when he was born. He was born with a collapsed lung and then had to puncture a whole in his chest to inflate it with pure oxygen...It was HEART BREAKING. It was difficult to find a pic without all the wires on his head, chest, and arms...
As you can see 7 minutes down and that was just finding pics and cardstock...Do you see Senor Asqueroso. He is a COCHINO/pig. He did not want to get out of last weeks outfit.

Now to mat my pics...Do you see the pics. In the 2nd column, 1st pic Joaquin is wrestling Solimar. In the 2nd pic they are messy from painting, and the 3rd pic he thru a FISTFUL of sand in her face...
Here is my you see what it reads? GOT ANGELS? Yeah, me neither! HILARIOUS! I crack myself up. They aren't ANGELS but they are MY angels.

I have 23 seconds does it look like I am going to finish on time..Yeah that would be a BIG FAT NO! Senor Asqueroso didn't taunt me this time as he saw that this page was emotionally difficult. He actually was trying to help...but don't let him fool you. I think he was just scared of might happen to him...HE HE

So what do you think? No Stamping? UGH! I have to redo to add stamping...


Paper: Wild Wasabi, Apricot Appeal, Soft Sky, Whisper White

Ribbon: Soft Sky and Pretty in Pink (stripes)
