U & Me

Hello Everybody;
After a month without posting, here I go again! I'm having a lot of changes in my life that I had to deal with and some changes that I'm still dealing with but here I am. Working on my hobby and trying to stay sane ;)
There is another sketch for you to play with on Sketch Along Tuesdays @ Frosted Designs. I'm the proud maker od the sketch. Is a very wimsical, elegant sketch. I love it so much I didn't change much! As I was creating the sketch I already was thinking which photo to use. So here is the sketch and my creation. Hopefully you'll get inspired and work with my sketch.

The Reason

Hello everybody;
Today I'm sharing with you a page that I made of my kids.
The title is "The Reason" Because they are my reason to live.
As simple as that. They are my everything.
When things get ugly, one look at them and I know\why I have to keep up
and look forward. Because they are the reason.

I used The title inspired by the song of the same title from the band Hoobastank.
I know that the lyrics are more from a cheating lover, but I really like the chorus:
I found a reason for me
to change how I used to be
a reason to start over new
and the reason is you.

Like the songs says, they are my reason to change to be a better person.
the reason to fight everything and everybody.

I used this weeks sketch at Sketches in Thyme
to create my page.

Paper: Scenic Route
Flowers: Prima
Chipboard letters: My Minds Eye
Corners: Making Memories
Border Punch: Fiskars

Little Things

Hello everybody
I like to live my life a day at a time and enjoy the little thins in life. 
Well I found a word art at Ginger's House about little things. 
"It's the Little things in life that matters"
I love this saying, and found a great picture of my kids for that title.
I enjoy those little things, like the smile that Ian gives me every time I serve him his fruit, or the way Lola claps after finishing all her supper. Also the way Ian sucks his thumb when we is sleepy or the way Lola giggles every time I do funny faces. Those little things that make your day whole.

Well this Thursday is an Open Challenge in Sketches in Thyme,

My Boy

Hello everybody, 
have I told you that I'm in love with my baby boy? No? Well Ian Andrés is the love of my life and his sister too. But Ian is such a cuddly boy, when Lola was his age she was so independent and did everything for herself, but with Ian is so different he is always by my side, always sits on my lad or want me to hold him. He is my baby and I love him so much.

2009

Hola chicas hoy les comparto una página que hice para un blog de retos muy inetresante. El blog es: Once Upon a... Sketch. Este site se distingue por que te da un sketch a seguir pero lo más importante del reto es la documentación. Ellos te dan unas guías para crear una página y añadirle la documentación. Me encanta este blog pues te ayuda y te "obliga" a documentar tus trabajos, que es la más importante de tu página. Aqui les comparto mi página.

Hello everybody, today I'm sharing with you a  page that I made for a blog that I found through the internet. The blog is Once Upon a... Sketch. This blog gives you a sketch and a few guidelines to write the journaling. This is my page.

Así que ¿cuán importante fue el año 2009 para mi? Pues en marzo tranplantaron a mi papá de riñón luego de 10 años en dialisis. En ese mismo mes me entero que estoy embarazada de mi segundo hijo. En abril Lola cumplió su primer añito. En Junio me gradué de la universidad y en noviembre nació Ian Andrés. Un año lleno de bendiciones y momentos hermosos.

So how important was the year 2009 for me? Well... in March my father had a kidney transplant after 10 years in dialysis. I also found out I was pregnant with my second child. In April we celebrated Lola's first birthday. On June I graduated from College and on November my son Ian Andrés was born. Great year full of blessings and beautiful memories.

Everyday

Hola chicas, hoy les comparto una página que hice de Lola. Una de las cosas con la que más tengo problemas es con los títulos y journaling. Pues muchas veces uso fotos que queo son bonitas pero no tienen una historia detrás de la misma. Pues lo que he encontrado que me ayuda mucho es usar frases o citas. Ahora se me hace más fácil buscar un título para este tipo de fotos.

Hello everybody, here is a page that I made of Lola. One of the things that I struggle while scrapbooking is with Titles and journals.  Sometimes you have pictures that are pretty but doesn't have a story about them. Well I have found a great way to solve this problem, I use phrases or quotes. Now this help me a lot with that kind of pictures.


Everyday I am reminded of the wonderful difference you have made in my life.

Be yourself


Hola Chicas, hoy tenemos un nuevo reto en Easy Craft Projects y el tema es:
AMARILLO
Creé una página sobre mi. Usando una foto de cuando tenía 20 años y creía que era indestructible jajajaja. Pero había algo que siempre me decía a mi misma y era: sé tu misma. En ese aspecto era la mejor. Nunca dejé que me manipularan las amistades ni seguía la corriente, todo lo contrario, bailaba al ritmo de mi propio tambor. Si nadie quería ir al cine yo iba sola. Si encontraba una restaurante interesante y nadie me quería acompañar me iba sola. No dejé que nada ni nadie me atara, siempre fuí fiel a mi misma, diciendo lo que pensaba y haciendo lo que me dictara mi corazón. Aunque cometí errores y me tropecé varias veces, sinto orgullo al decir que siempre fuí yo misma. 


Hello everybody; today is a new challenge at Easy Craft Proyects and the theme is:
Yellow
I made a page about myself. I used a picture when I was 20 years old and I thought I was indestructible hahaha.But I always told myself: be yourself. In that aspect I excelled. I never let my friends put pressure on  me , I always swam against the tide; I march at the rhythm of my own drum.  If none of my friends wanted to go to the movies or a different restaurant I went alone. I never let nothing or nobody to stop me, I said what was oin my mind and did what my heart told me. Even though I made mistakes, I feel pride that I was always myself.

Paper and buttons: My Minds Eye
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Flowers: Petaloo

I used My Minds Eye newest collection of Lost and Found two.

Rain

Lluvia, unos dicen que como las lágrimas purifican el alma, la lluvia purifica la tierra y nos trae paz. A mi me encanta la lluvia, desde verla caer hasta mojarme en ella, me encanta el olor de la lluvia, si ese olor a tierra húmeda. Hoy les comparto una página titulada lluvia. Son unas fotos de mi hija Lola que quería jugar en la lluvia pero estaba enferma para hacerlo así que le dí su paraguas y la observé jugar. 

Rain, some say that like tears cleans the soul, rain purifies the earth and brings us peace. I love the rain, so watch it fall or so get wet on it, I love the smell of rain, that particular smell of wet ground. Today I'm sharing with you a page titled Rain. The pictures are from my daughter Lola, she wanted to play in the rain put she was sick, so I let her go out with her umbrella and watcher play.

 Journaling: Rain! Whose soft architectural hands have the power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains 
                                                                     - Henry Ward Beecher

 Como saqué varias fotos y todas me gustaron hice un mini album dentro de la página.
That day I took a lot of pictures so I made a mini album in the page.

Como bien dice el journal, tan delicada la lluvia y tiene el poder de cortar y transformar rocas, así quiero que sea mi hija, delicada, humilde y suave, pero que sea determinada, persistente y dedicada.

Like the journal says, that the soft rain can cut and transforms rocks, That's who I want my daughter to grow. Soft, delicate and humble but also, determined, persistent and devoted.

Simply Me

Hola chicas, sigo tratando de poner al día todos los trabajos del PRSE 2011, pues todavía tengo proyectos del evento del año pasado sin terminar :( Pues como dicen por acá, entre col y col una lechuguita. Así que entre mis creaciones para los grupos que pertenezco , saco un tiempo para terminar los proyectos pendientes. Esta vez les comparto un mini album de la clase de Donna Downey. Es un canvas y las técnicas eran de masking y estampado. Así que hoy celebrando mis 26 años hice el mini sobre mi y las cosas que me gustan.

Hello everybody, here I'm to finish the unfinished projects form the Puerto Rico Scrapbook Event 2011, since I still haven't finish the ones from 2010 :( So In between my work for the design teams I work with, I'm working on the projects from the event. Here is a mini album form the class of Donna Downey. Is a canvas album and the techniques we used were masking ans stamping. So since today I'm celebrating my 26 b-day I made this mini album about me and the things I like.








 Me gusta mucho este mini, pues tiene fotos de muchas cosas personales, como por ejemplo cuando me hice mi primer tatuaje a los 19 años, mi primer carro que lo pagué yo solita, mi actor y música preferida como HIM y Linkin Park. También añadí un recuerdo muy importante que era donde me iba a Walgreens de madrugada y me compraba un nesquik con un lunchable y me sentaba en el bonete del carro a leer la última cosmopólitan. Estos recuerdos son los que quiero compartir con mis hijos que aunque hice cosas estúpidas (como la pantalla en el ombligo que me la tuve que quitar para mis embarazos) terminé la universidad y soy una buena persona. Simplemente fui (y soy aún ) joven y me disfruté mi vida sanamente ;)

 I like this mini a lot, I have pictures when got my first tattoo when I was 19 years old, My first car that I bought it on my own, my have actor and favorite music like HIM and Linkin Park, and I added the most happy of my memories that I used to hang out at Walgreens at midnight, I used to buy a chocolate milk and some lunchables and sit on the hood of my car to eat and read the lasted cosmo magazine. Those are the memories I wanted to share with my kids that even if I did a few stupid things (like my navel ring that I had to take off for my pregnancies) I finished college and I'm a good person. That I was young (and I'm still am) and that I enjoy life on a good way ;)

Materiales / Supplies:
Canvas, flowers and swirls: Prima
Paint, stamps, tags.
