I Love...


Hello everybody...

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving Day... and that your Black Friday is not so black after all!!! My Thanksgiving was very good. I was at my mother in law's with all the family and we had a great time together.


And I haven't posted anything for a while. My computer is kind of crazy. We are planning to ask Santa Claus for a new one... or maybe the Three Wise Men will take care of it... (In Puerto Rico we celebrate the Three Kings' Day or Three Wise Men's Day on Jan 6th. and is more of a local tradition. They bring presents as well. For what I've learned, most people in the metro area think of the 3Kings' Day as a secondary festivity during Xmas and the toys or presents expected are less important than the one received in Xmas Day. However, for us people from the center of the Island, the 3Kings' Day is even more important and they bring better toys and presents because they are three -instead of just one - and they are rich because they are kings...). So, let's see what happens...
So anyway... I've worked several layouts recently and haven't posted... This one I worked it last weekend. I met with some friends and celebrated our "Wine, Cheese and Scrapbooking" activity. Yes... just like my blog's title. We've been celebrated this activity for a while. We meet to scrap, and our husbands are with us... serving us wine, cooking, and just sharing... Isn't it nice? We've celebrated 20 WC&S already and hope we continue doing it. It's great to share this hobby and it's an opportunity to keep on feeding our friendship.


This layout is called "I love"... and shows a picture of my goddaughter, Fabiola, with my dog, Malbec. I just love it when Malbec is so kind and always willing to play with kids and allowing them to touch him, and just love him... All kids love him, for sure... And Fabiola thinks she owns it when other kids want to touch him... her face just changes completely like saying... "this is my dog" ... hahahaha... but I love the way Malbec behaves around children.
The paper from Bo Bunny already has a lot of elements, so I just used it as base as is, and added some things like the heart banner I cut from other paper, the ribbon I placed with glue dots, just bending it with free from (you know... just don't forget to add the obvious imperfect touch), and the little chipboard hearts to emphasize on love.
I used this yellow letters from American Crafts to break a little bit on color pattern the layout was resulting to have, but I also lined them with a glitter pen so they can be more noticed...

I'll be posting more LO's during the next weeks... as far as my computer allows me... hehehehe...

Hope you continue enjoying the Holidays... and by the way... Do you have your Xmas tree already? We already have ours... and it's just something so different from traditional... but you'll have to see it... I can't tell you... Maybe in some future post...

Me encantó, me encanta trabajar esos papeles así, sin cosas que opaquen su belleza, y a la misma vez haga resaltar la foto ta espectacular. Lo que hicistes con las letras me encantó!

Hermoso, el outline en el título me encantó, hace que el título sobresalga. La foto está bien tierna.
