Cinco de Mayo Blog Hop {CLOSED}

Welcome to the Cinco de Mayo blog hop and to my blog.  You've reached the last stop of the hop, but if you happen to come across my blog and want to participate, please start with Abby, our host. 

 I asked Melin from Paper Crafting World to design a cut file that I can use for this blog hop and boy oh boy did she ever deliver.  She created the bear posing just like my sweet Dulce.  Isn't it the cutest!?


And here's my layout:
I added pop dots to each scallop on each ruffle of the skirt.  It's hard to see on the pic but here's a close up.

Dulce has been dancing folklorico for about 6 years now. The dress she's wearing is from the region of Chiapas.  "Dulceria" is what my dad calls her, "dulce de la dulceria" translates "candy from the candy store". :)  This layout is my sister's mother's day gift.  I'm also entering this layout in the Creative Cutter challenge.


I have blog candy, just leave a comment and I will choose a winner on Monday, May 9th.

Oh my gosh, what a beautiful layout Yolie. I love how you decorated the dress, and put the pop dots under it to give it a bit of dimension. The flowers are so cute on it. This was a fun hop.

Hi, Yolie! What a great layout! It must have taken a lot of time to cut all those flowers and then to put the whole thing together. It was well worth the effort though as that picture demands an awesome layout. You did a fabulous job on it. TFS!
