Happy Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I did and my knee is much better today, praise God! I've been playing with the "Material girl" papers from Cosmo Cricket and did some challenges. The first one is from Liz Qualman (http://lizqualman.blogspot.com/).





The next one is from Creative Scrappers (http://www.creativescrappers.blogspot.com/).



The next challenge is from Wee Memories at http://suchins.blogspot.com/. Something pink and embellishments. Here is my take:


My husband and I paid a visit to our friend Karen's class to help them make  Mother's Day cards.  We had a great time dancing, singing, painting, stamping, cutting and laughing with these amazing kids. Tomorrow we get to visit them again as some of them are graduating. Here are more pictures of our special day together:








Susie poses every time she sees a camera. She is one of the sweetest girl I have ever met. I did this page for the StuckOnUsSketches (http://stuckonusketches.blogspot.com/) challenge this week which is buttons.

  3. Hi,Beatriz!!! Thanks for visiting me today, I always appreciate you dropping in and, of course, you're always welcome. So glad to hear you're doing better too!

    I just love the layouts!!! I'm really looking closely at them because each month I visit with terminally ill children at the LaRabida Children's Hospital here. I recently took pictures of them to give to each other, and now they've asked me to do them a scrapbook -- ME!!! I've never done a scrapbook or scrapbook page before in my life!!! OMG!!! And, God knows, I won't disappoint them, so... Guess I'll be doing a scrapbook -- LOL!!! Pray for me because I don't even know where to start!!! LOL!

    Have a wonderful and Blessed day, my friend!
