HOLA CHICA

Hello all my blogger friends.  I know I have been lazy and sometimes forget I have a blog home.  I keep promising to do better---hummmmm.  Well, I am here now LOL.  I just want to share an artist with you that I had meet maybe 5 or 6 yrs ago at my local Michael's.  Her name is Kathy Cano-Murillo.  She has a site called Crafty Chica.com.  She is most known for her Mexi-Boho style.  She came out with a line of  Latino stencils which are fabulous.  I purchased a few and had fun with my distressed ink, copics , some bling and stickles.  If you like these, they are sold at Blue Moon Scrapbooking.  Tell me what you think of them, I love them.  Thanks for stopping by.

THE WRAP

Hello everybody and welcome to the weekend.  Since I am at home all week, the weekends are just another day to play.  Well, my favorite digi artist, Robert Jackson, http://www.fineartsbyrobertjackson.com/index.html, just released some new images.  This is the one I like the best and love when he does this type of image.  It is called The Wrap.  I had so much fun with her that I had to make 3.  I paper pieced the wrap and added a bit of tops to them.  Please check him out as he really has a lot of beautiful images that look just like me.  Well, that is it for now and I hope not to be such a stranger.  Thanks for stopping by and see you soon.

SUGAR AND SPICE

Hello people, just wanted to share this cute card I just made using one of Robert Jackson's new digi images.  I fell in love with her cuteness and had to create something with her.  My niece is having my first great niece in November so I thought I would get it started by sending cute girly cards to her.  If you don't know Robert Jackson, you should check him out here http://www.fineartsbyrobertjackson.com/index.html.  He creates beautiful images including self images.  Peace out

FAMILY REUNION THANK YOU CARDS

Hello friends.  On July 7-11 I attended a Family Reunion on my mother's side of the family.  It was the 30th reunion and there were 178 people in attendance.  It was held in beautiful San Diego, California.  The accomodations and weather were just wonderful. Very nice change from Tucson, AZ.  We had a meet and greet the first nite, a harbor cruise on Friday morning and family dinner that evening.  Saturday was all day picnic and Saturday nite was pizza and game nite.  Sunday we had breakfast, church and business meeting. New officers were voted in and our next site.  My brother is president this round so it will be held in Chicago in two years.  I made a few thank yous for a few folks who contributed to the success of the reunion.  I made them in the family colors (white and maroon) and added pictures from the reunion.  I really like how they came out and hope you do too.  Thanks for looking.

RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS SWAP

Hi there,  Been real busy so I have not posted much lately.  I will try to do better.  For this post I want to share a Random Act of Kindness swap I joined over at Scraps of Color.  Each person was matched up with a random person and was ask to purchase $20 of goodies.  In addition we had to send a hand made gift.  $20 does not go very far with some of the items of interest, but we made it work. I had so much fun making this package, but more fun painting my ceremic doll.  Before I started paper crafting I use to do ceremics.  I had my own molds, poured, cleaned and fired my stuff.  I had several left over pieces so I wanted to share something different with my partner.  Needless to say, it was her favorite  thing in the package.  Only down side of the swap was the cost of shipping, but it was still my pleasure.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you in some way.
