Imagination Monday Challenge

Hello my crafty friends..
I really try very hard to play this challenge for Emma's Imagination Monday, and I got her new stamps, I used YOU GOT ME AT CHOCOLATE, that I was dying to use. Check all her collection of stamps HERE. This week challenge was to create something Valentine or sweet. 
I was able to make this cute card using the heart from the new cricut cartridge Life's is a Party, have to tell you.. is a good one.. cute card cuts and super awesome images, the pattern paper and solids, I printed in the IMAGINE from the cart Mr. Frosty...yes the winter papers.. well I found this cute hearts made with candy canes.. wahoo a hidden treasure.  Ohh almost forgot to mention my new love, ACTION WOBBLES... 
You want to see the card... and yes that is princess face stamp from PK.

Baby Layouts shadow boxes gifts....


Hello my crafty friends...
I know I haven't been posting.. doesn't mean I haven't been playing with paper. I had few baby showers gift to make... I made two baby boy layout shadow boxes this past week..
Also this past weekend, I had the chance to clean up and organize my scraproom, got rid of some unwanted stuff, move things around a little.. need to take new pictures... to update my room pics.
I will like to share with you what I made...
First one is the one for Baby Jameson, remember the post on the baby shower invites I made in Dec, well I made a matching layout 12x12 in a shadow box.. everyone love it.. amazed how I was able to match the baby theme room.


Made a quick card that I had template save in my gypsy.


Now my second layout is for baby Mason, a co-worker also having a boy, show me on her phone her baby theme room stuff.... so cute... love the colors, the stitching and of course, got so inspired and made this 8.5x11 layout. This is a Martha Stewart shadow box.

Hello My Crafty friends...

Welcome to the DIA DE REYES BLOG HOP is a latin celebration on Jan 6th, the three kings reach Jesus after he was born in Dec 25th, if you count the days it been 12 days.. the Three kings reach Jesus to bring him gifts.... for this reason our latin culture give presents to our young children on this day, kids leave a box with grass and water for the camels near the bed, and there they will find there presents in the morning. (this is how I grow up in Puerto Rico) other latin countries will celebrate different. Like our host Gaby will explain in her blog..

Now to the hop.. if you came from the talented Jess from welcome to kinderstampo you are in the right track if not you don't want to miss any stops.. because beside the nice blog candy you will find alone the way, you need to collect words to create a Phrase that you will then email to Gaby for the chance to the grand prize... for all the details start at the beginning by clicking HERE...

If you get lost.. don't worry, head back here the hop list is at the bottom of my post...
