Lovey Dovey

Hola Everyone!

How is your week going?  Mine?  BUSY with work, but I'm grateful for my job.

Well, I am stopping by to share my project for the new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges . The theme is love, Valentine, or wedding. And you can create a layout, card, canvas, etc. 

This is Challenge #34
Challenge #34 - Valentine, Love, Wedding

2. Must be newly created
3.The due date for the Design Team are Tuesday  20th January 2015, 15:00pm European time. Please, be aware of the time zone differences - on the top left you will find the Date and Clock on the blog.
4. Challenge #34 will go live Friday the 23th of January 2015 @ 02:00AM, please post your Creations on your blog in time, so that I can link back to your blogs.

I created a quick and simple card using a "journaling" card from Echo Park.  Using journaling cards is a fast way to mass produce your Valentine cards. :
Ok, folks, I am currently typing this up at work during my lunch hour.  However, the computer is old and sssllllooow.  Shhh...., don't tell them. ;)   So this means that it's not cooperating and my post will look a little different than usual.

Thank you kindly for stopping by.  I always welcome your company. :)
Happy Crafting!

Typing Thanks

Howdy Y'all!

Happy weekend. Do you have any exciting plans for this 3-day weekend? This Monday we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday.  Among other things, he was a Baptist minister and activist.  And I want to take a quick moment to show my appreciation for a man who stood up for justice and equality.  His sacrifice paved the way for many.

Well, I am stopping by to share my project for the big, end-of-2014 challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun.  Our fearless leader provided sketches for all the different challenges.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to copy the image here after numerous attempts.  However, it's right on the challenge blog. :) 
These challenges are a bit different because you get to vote for your fave(s). :D

Here is my project:

Happy Crafting,

Hello & Happy New Year!

Well, dear friends, you probably thought I had fallen off the earth. Truth be told, Dec. 2014 was beyond BUSY: Christmas events for work, daily dance practices for my niece's quincenera (a HUGE coming-of-age party for Hispanic girls turning 15), finishing invites, decorating the hall, having the party, hosting family, & getting sick. 

Unfortunately, this sickness landed me in urgent care and out of commission for a few weeks.  (It's not quite gone, but I'm feeling stronger.) Therefore, I was not able to have any crafty fun. :(  Fortunately, my teammates were able to, so I'd like to point you in their direction for the new challenge at Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges- birthday.  Perhaps you can join the fun. :D

I wish you a year full of peace, joy, love & health!! 

Happy Crafting,
