Dreams do come true!

Hi! This month, Lea and Theresa from Scrapbookers Anonymous challenged us to create a layout with our most difficult color. For me is purple! To identify my most difficult project, I checked my Two Peas and Scrapbook.com galleries, and I have more than a dozen of projects checked with reds, blues, greens, yellow but none with purple. 

Even more, I received a scrapbook kit earlier in the year with the beautiful collection from Webster's Pages, and I had it almost untouched. Not for Websters Pages, but just for the abundance of purple color. So I challenged myself to create with purple, and I was surprised with my results.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Webster's Pages: Hollywood Vogue Collection, Shine a Light, Foo on Film; Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Flower: Websters Pages, Vintage Wire Floral Bouquet, Leaves: Precocious Paper; Chipboard: Stampin' Up!; Doily: Maya Road; Pearl Brads: Making Memories; Tool: Punch by EK Success; Die Cut: Elle's Studio; Chipboard: Pink Paislee.

I admit, I had a lot of fun digging out for purple items in my stash!

This was me on January 2000. I joined my father in his traditional business trip to Las Vegas, for the International Electronic Show. At this time, I was working full-time and without boy friend. I still remember my cumbersome curiosity for what the new decade would bring.

At this time, I knew my dear husband, but I did not have any idea that future will join us together later that year. Reflecting right now, we married a year later, relocated for almost two fabulous years on Italy for work, we returned to Puerto Rico and bought our house, we had two kids later on.

I found this fabulous hobby of scrapbooking, and had the chance to be a Stay at Home Mom, while my kids were little, and with a happy and healthy marriage. I am really grateful for all these blessings! Yes, this is my life at a snapshot.

Well, now it is your time to create with your most difficult color! 

Cannot wait to see what it is the most difficult color for everyone!

Have a nice day!
