I am back!!!

I am back to my nice and cozy South!!!! It was soooo cold in Chicago I almost froze. I truly do not know how people survive so many months under those temperatures.... and for all of you who live in the North,  come on down and visit me anytime you want to! Okay, enough about the weather... we had a fabulous family time with our kids and family. Today I've been resting and scrappin' a little and here is what I made  using the beautiful Kaisercraft English Rose line. The colors are so soft and delicate.

Jenn from ttp:// has a great Christmas giveaway. Here is her information:

This is what she says about her giveaway: "Up for grabs is an adorable Maya Road chipboard mini, some sparkly, sequin holiday stickers from Jolee's Boutique, some festive clear stamps from We R Memory Keepers, and my favorite, some Teresa Collins Blingage!After reading all that, I bet you're just drooling for these sweets! So, now on to how you can get your hands on all of this. The winner will be drawn from one week from now (Dec 23) and the lucky recipient's package will be mailed off after Christmas day." You can visit her blog right here.

Our Valerie turned 30! We had dinner at a fabulous restaurant called Wildfire in Chicago. These are grandma and grandpa  Farquhar at 86 years old!!!!!


  1. Welcome back Beatriz! We've missed you here in blogland! Beautiful layout, and what a stunning daughter you have. I'm glad you had fun and got to spend time with your family. Thanks too for promoting the giveaway, let's hope it takes off!

  2. Beautiful Bea! How'd Valerie take turing 30, I turned 30 in July and had a terrible time dealing with it. There's just something about being a decade older, I seriously cried on my 10th birthday too! haha!

  3. What a wonderful page! I will be kind of glad when my holiday projects are done so that I can do some scrapping just for me! But meanwhile I will enjoy this joyous time of year!

  4. This is beautiful, Bea!!! I love that paper!!! And a very Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter!!!! Hugs!!!

  5. So glad you're back! And hopefully you left that cold weather up north! HA! Who am I kidding? The high here in NC yesterday was 31! LOL. Happy birthday to your daughter. I have one getting ready to turn 30 too. Where has the time gone???

    I love the soft colors of your oh so pretty layout! Great job as always.

  6. Glad you made it back safely too. I thought I would freeze up there last week too. One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago is Wildfire! Too funny. We got to see a play Saturday night called A Civil War Christmas in the NW suburb of Skokie came out to a blanket of snow. How about Sunday and that wind! BRRRRR Oh well enough of that. LOVE your page and the soft colors is offers. TFS. Happy you are back!
