Selfie

Happy Tuesday!  I often wondered why we never took selfies with our old style cameras until my DH showed me on his "turn of the century" cell phone?  You can't aim the camera if you can't see what you're aiming at!
 
Here's a layout for those awesome pictures of ourselves!


Actually, this is one of my new kits. I have more than a dozen new ones coming out tonight. You can come back later and check them out on this blog.  Send me an e-mail to if you're not on my mailing list for the announcement of new kits and I'll put you on it.  My e-mail address is  beatrizguzman58@yahoo.com.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Dream

Hello and happy Monday! Hope you had a beautiful weekend and got a chance to celebrate Mothers Day.

We spent the day canoeing down Santa Fe River with our daugther, her husband and their two babies.  And what started out as me in the front with Andrew in the middle, quickly (within 50 feet of the boat ramp) evolved into Andrew coming up front with me.  Note the position of my paddle.


Before long, Carolina joined us and the three of us moved to the middle of the canoe.  Note that the paddle has not moved one inch and, if memory serves me correctly, that's exactly where it was when we turned in the canoe at the end of the trip four hours later!  Hey, it was Mothers Day.  You never see Cleopatra paddling her own boat down the Nile, do you?


Here's a layout that I made last week titled Dream.  I hope that you like it.


Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I hope that you have a wonderful and blessed day and week.

El Cinco de Mayo

Good morning and happy Wednesday!  As most of you know, yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, a day celebrated more in the United States than in Mexico.

In honor of the holiday, I made this layout in the morning ...


... and then invited my "crew" to lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant here in Gainesville.


Andrew likes this restaurant because they have two fountains that he can toss coins into and also these beautiful hand-carved and painted chairs.  Here he is holding some pennies while he stands next to his favorite chair in the entire restaurant, the one covered with ocean animals.  (He seems a bit sad here because this chair was occupied when we arrived, but we convinced him that sitting in the booth next to this chair was even better because he could look at it while we ate.)


Here are the grandkids enjoying some helado (ice cream) after lunch.


And here is Carolina taking a siesta mere minutes after the ice cream. (No more guacamole for her!!!)


We had a nice time and have the photos to prove it.  And this is why I want to encourage all of you to make prints of the photos you take with your smart phones and get them into scrapbooks.  I know a person who lost her iPhone and with it all of the irreplaceable photos she had taken.  Very sad.

Thanks very much for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!

National Scrapbook Day

Good morning and happy Monday.  

This past Saturday, May 2nd, was National Scrapbook Day which I celebrated with some amazing scrappers at Scrapbooking Moments in Time's weekend scrap in Ft. Lauderdale.  Here's one of the first layouts I made on Friday titled "Hello Sunshine".


And here are some silly moments at the crop.  This is me after tripping and spilling 144 paper leaves.

And here are Suzanne and my niece, Gabriela, who wrapped herself up in a towel because she was too cold.

And here are Karen & Gabriela with the "Chin on Hand" ladies.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  I will be showing more layouts from this crop later in the week.  Have a terrific and blessed day.

Family Vacation

Good morning and happy Monday!

This past weekend I went to Walt Disney World with two of my grandchildren and their parents.  I guess you could call it a family mini-vacation!  Here is the perfect layout for our pictures.

Here's Andrew with Mickey.  He told him that he watches him most afternoons on TV.

And here I am with Andrew & Carolina; all three of us still on our feet.

Here they are with their parents and King Neptune.

I'll admit it; I am beat!!!  Here I am with Carolina on the People Mover going around and around.  They let us stay on as long as we wanted.  Obviously, Carolina is having a blast!

The Lord is My Light

Good morning and happy Friday!  Another week has come and gone.  Here is a layout that I made last weekend when I was with The Hive in Dothan.  It's titled "The Lord is My Light".


I've been spending this week in Ft. Lauderdale with my daughter who is attending a conference for work.  I got to take care of two of my precious grandchildren during the day and we all got to be together in the evening.  Here are Andrew and Carolina at the beach the other day.


And here is a picture of God's Light shining through storm clouds at that same beach.


Thanks for seeing my blog today.  Have a wonderful and blessed day and a safe and restful weekend.
