Let's meet up for a brew!

This is the newest digi release from Fresh Brewed Designs, you can get it here.  I drew her pantsuit in purple, but looks blue.  The argyle paper is by Kaiser Craft and other by DCWV.  The sentiment is my own, click on the image to download:

Both Fresh Brewed Designs and Kaiser Craft are LUFP sponsors! :)

Kaiser Craft

Christmas Posada layout

This is Dulce when she was 3 years old!  Look at those chubby cheeks!  This was a posada held at my sister's home in December 2001.  The handsome boy is her big brother, my Godson;  he's know 19 a sophomore at St. Louis University.  Time sure flies!!  That's Dulce's daddy, look how she's squeezing him!  Priceless....hard to believe he's been gone for almost 6 years.  We miss him dearly.

I used the Scraptastic Club's Holy Mittens kit, oh wow this kit is loaded!!  The only I added from my stash was bling and the journal tag.  It has journal tags, but I didn't leave room for it. ;)
I have enough to make at least 6 or 8 pages and at least 4 cards!  Love it!  I scraplifted the first page on the left from here and the second page from here

Scraptastic Club is a Link Up for Pink sponsor.....Pssst they have donated two of these kits for LUFP, but don't tell anyone else, I'm just sharing it with you. ;)

Link Up for Pink Special Announcement


It started with an idea of hosting a blog hop, but instead I realized it would be best to host a linking party; an opportunity for all to share their pink projects, share their stories, build a strong community and most importantly bring awareness to breast cancer. I could not do it alone, when I brought this idea to my dear friend, she immediately responded, “Let’s do it”. Thank you for being such a great friend and cheerleader!

As we all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it should not start or end in October, we should always be aware. Remember to do your self-breast exams, send reminder cards to your friends to get their mammos, and accompany a friend to their appointment. Somehow, some way we have known someone who has battled this terrible disease; some have fought a good fight, but unfortunately, some lost the battle. We lost my brother-in-law Kevin, Dulce’s daddy to cancer. My husband lost his grandmother to breast cancer and his Mom, my mother-in-law, Pat is fighting it and currently winning! She had a birthday this month; she turned 76!

I’m super excited for Link Up for Pink. I visit your blogs and see our LUFP badge and I’m so delighted that you are helping us bring awareness! I have read each comment left on my recent posts and I want to thank you for taking the time to share your stories with me….they have touched my heart.

To our sponsors, thank you for coming through for this event! Thank you for your generous donations!

Link Up for Pink now has a Relay for Life page. I am proud to announce we are one of the three virtual Relay for Life groups and the first ever blog event to be recognized by the American Cancer Society. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please click on the badge below.  New and exciting things to come in November with the American Cancer Society.

As we take this journey together, let us take the time to celebrate life, live for today and remember the lives of the women and men no longer with us.

Thank you,
