Project 12 "January 2010"

The magazine Scrapbook & Cards Today, in partnership with Davinie Fiero, and Becky Fleck, is offering "Project 12" monthly challenge. 

The purpose of Project 12 is to complete an album with twelve (12) 2 pages layouts or “year in review” album at the end of 2010. The idea is to have a photo summary of 5 to 6 photos which highlights each month. For more information, please see the blog of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine.

Here is the sketch for January 2010:


Here is my take on Project 12 challenge:
Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill & CTMH, Paaterned Paper: Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg, Punches: Stampin Up, Stickers: Stampin Up, Plastic Sheer: Maya Road

My favorite photo is my sons picking up the grass for the three year kings day. They were so excited to receive the three wise men, that the box filled with grass was already under the christmas tree on the afternoon of January 4. 

I included a photo of my laptop, looking for information from Haiti Earthquake that happened on January 12 at 4 P.M., in addition to the birthday celebrations we have in the family on January.

Have a happy day!


My dad has three daughters, which I am the oldest one. He always wanted a son, but he did not. When I was pregnant of my first child, all the family wanted me to bring a boy. And, I had a boy.

When I was preparing a layout for Log your Memory weekly challenge #7 "Who is your most favorite person in the world", I decided to journal the special feeling between my dad and his first grandchild. I used this photo taken on March 3, 2006. The journaling says: "Luis is one of my dad's most favorite persons. As the first grandson, he did many things that he did not do with his three daughters, like changing diapers, and preparing hot cereal for breakfast. Both guys love to share time together"

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Chatterbox Inc. Together, Alphabet: Heidi Swapp, Cardstock: Bazzill

In addition, I submitted this layout for The Scrap-Room weekly challenge #7, which highlight the February Sketch, created exclusively for TSR by Julie Bonner.

Five years from today, on February 2005, my baby boy had 9 months. Time goes so fast...

This layout was made according to sketch 2.11 from Sketchy Thursdays

at the river

On February 14, 2009, my sons played at a small river near our home. They played with logs, imaginary fishing, etc... It is gratifying to see them enjoying playing with nature, especially on these days full with technology and video games.

The Three Kings and other topics...

The St Valentine weekend was fabulous. On friday night, my DH and me went to see La Fuerza Bruta at Centro de Bellas Artes, Santurce Puerto Rico. “Fuerzabruta” (the title is Spanish for “Brute Force”) was created by Diqui James, where the audience must be stand up during all the function around one hour.

Photo:  New York Times 

At “Fuerzabruta,” the audience is expected to be a semi-active collaborator. Even my DH, had a pizza box stuffed with powder and confetti smashed over his head. This was a very different type of theater experience. I strongly recommend it.

Also, I was able to do a little scrapping during the weekend. The layout "The Three Kings" was made following sketch #110 from 
Sketch inspiration. Between the dates of December 26 to January 5 of every year, Plaza Las Americas at San Juan, Puerto Rico provides you the opportunity to meet the three kings. The photo was taken on December 30, 2009. Taking this type of photos is already a tradition in our family.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: My Mind Eye - Pennylane, Aphabet Stickers: Making Memories and Jillibean Soup, Diecut: Jenni Bowlin, Flower: Prima, Corduroy button: Stampin Up.

What I love about you

What I love about you:

Peter: meets all the characteristics of a loving man. Did you search what means a loving man on the internet? Yes, there are a lot of studies about this and more than 25 requirements or definitions.

Luis: good heart, intelligent, intellectual, your eyes.

Diego: obedient, street smart, emotional intelligence, his smile.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Making Memories, Buttuns: Autumn Leaves, Stickers: 7 gypsies, Die cuts: My Mind Eyes.

This layout "What I love about you" was made according to sketch 185 from Scrapbook Challenges. The layout theme was inspired in prompt from Book Challenge #6 from Log your Memory.

Now, I have to go, since I have a beauty appointment in half an hour. My dear husband invited me to the theater tonight, so I must be prepare myself!!! I already arranged for the babysitting. This weekend seems  will turn in a great weekend. See you soon next week!

Notre Dame de Paris

On June 2009, we traveled to Paris, France. We rented an apartment through ParisAttitude at the first arrondisement for one week. Then we stayed for three days at Reims, located at the Champagne region. Even, we were with small kids, we got to see many of Paris and Reims attractions. I took more than 800 photos, and today, I was able to scrap the first three photos. Please, do not tell me that, I am behind. LOL! I am just telling you, that there will be more travel layouts in the following months!!

The weekly challenge #5 from Log Your Memory request the following: "What are your bare necessities? The things you just can't live without..." This question made me reflect on how fortunate I am, especially when I read about Haiti's people after January 2010 earthquake. Many people lacks a house, food, water, and the most important a loving family... But returning to the challenge question, and giving thanks to GOD that all my bare necessities are already provided, I will say that my self-indulgencies are my daily cup of coffee, reading, a nice book to take notes, a computer for home management, and my iphone. Below, you can see what I did

Patterned Paper: Webster Pages, Crate Paper
Flowers: Prima, Hero Arts, Doddlebug Designs

The sketch is from Cherie Averill  Sassy lil Sketches. I am also participating in The Scrap-Room Weekly Challenge #5, which requires to provide a layout with a layered flower. The Self-Indulgence layout has attached three layered flowers from three different manufacturers a part of the title.

These two are the last layouts I did in January, 2010. The first one is my family celebrating one of my birthdays at my parents house. This layout was made with sketch 108 from Sketch Inspirations. I used the patterned paper collection from Pink Paislee Vintage Moon.

The second layout was done to complete Week #4 challenge at The Scrap-Room. I used a discontinued paper collection from Stampin Up. Love to see my sons playing together. For this LO, I used a sketch from Janna Wilson, Got Sketch 104.
