Hi! Happy Tuesday! Hoping you are recovering from "Thanksgiving week" and that you have enjoyed a great time with your family! I had a great time too!
I admit that I am really still trying to return to the normal routine. This weekend we decorated the house inside and outside, shopping for decorations, put up the tree, and loads of laundry from vacations.
We had beach vacations at Culebra, Puerto Rico on the Thanksgiving week. I confess that I almost did not ate turkey, but I ate a lot of "Catch of the day" fish! All of them typical of Culebra's water! Delicious!
Culebra has one of the most beautiful beaches of the caribbean, if not of the world. We spent our days at Playa Flamenco and Bahia Tamarindo. Wait for a post very soon (next weekend) with lot of photos documenting our thanksgiving week! I still had not downloaded my photos from the camera with the Christmas set-up!. I hope to do it soon!! I promise!
This is not a traditional way to celebrate thanksgiving, but I am really grateful to spend quality time with my dear husband and kids. Also, really grateful for the beauty of Puerto Rico beaches. Really grateful for all the people that defends our ecological treasures against the big developments. We lose the habit to see the clock!
Now for the scrappy stuff! Today is reveal day at Sketchabilities! Loved this sketch from Karan Gerber, as always, so full of possibilities!
There is a sponsor giveaway too!
The Technique Junkies newsletter was started in 2002 as a resource for Rubber Stamping Techniques. The prize would be a Fancy Folds and MotionPaper Crafts CD and a one year on-line subscription to the Technique Junkie Newsletter. So cool for everyone looking to learn more stamping techniques!
Here is my take on the sketch!
Where do you want to sit? Please do not comment at my lack of originality to create the title? This sentence is what came up first at my mind!
My two boys at the gardens from Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR). It was a working day on July! I do not remember the exact temperature, but on July we have temperatures above 90F. We went to the museum to escape the heat. It was so cool! This was a really cool idea to spend our leisure days of summer! Since it was a working day, all the museum and gardens were only for us! My kids really enjoyed that day! The sofa is a rock sculpture! So cool this sofa is located under the shadows of bamboo's and tropical trees.
Supplies are from Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934. I used some patterned papers and chipboard stickers. In addition to Kaisercraft red rhinestone, red twine, and MME Lost and Found brads embellishments!
