A Perfect Day

Today is an open challenge at Sketches in Thyme. I create my page using  
I made this page of a perfect day with my kids. That perfect day involves a tons of playtime, watching cartoons and cooking together. Those are the perfect days that I want them to remember when the grow up. so here is the page i created. The pictures are from August 2nd, 2011.

I used My Minds Eye newest collection of Lost and Found two. I have to tell you that I'm not a yellow person, But this "Sunshine"collection was a must, Since I only have the traditional colors, working with this so different made my day super fun. I love the end result, sometimes we have to cross or boundaries and experiment with things that aren't our normal choices. So go find a great sketch and start creating using things you don't normally use and see what you come up with!!!

Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Charms: Prima Marketing
Title Rub Ons: Fancy Pants
Brads and photo fasteners: Making Memories

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.
