I mentioned before, that I've been entertained making embellishment clusters for my 12 x 12 layouts. That is so therapeutic and also have fun doing it. A sense of completion and a satisfaction that nothing is wasted, always accompany me afterwards. ;-) . Now I'm also doing a lot of embellishments, smaller ones. using those tiny, itty bitty die cuts, and shapes and scraps. Here is a few.

I had so much fun putting together the embellishment cluster, that's on the right hand side. I've been doing a lot of those lately. I does speed up the process of putting a layout together. Super fun!
This is a memory I never want to forget. My mother crocheting for me. My mom is not the type of person that you will imagine doing this...so it was double special. A great memory.

Because that's what I do when I go to the beach. Not sure if its the sea breeze but sitting there, watching the come and go of the waves, the serene/therapeutic sound of the beach makes me dream of the future. This picture was taken by a person I loove so much, Israel, aka Win. He was walking on the beach and his shadow, was perfectly capture. He has such an eye for capturing interesting stuff. Is not the first pic I use from his collection, and i'm sure it wont be the last. Thanks honey!

I was invited to participate in a swap, by Olga Vasquez (YT) and I had the time of my life doing it. Participants had to make a Christmas Ornament, and three cards. I went the extra mile and did a few gift tags to my partner, just because!.wink emoticon

A mini album, to collect all those special meals that we made and that are a signature of our family. I want to be able to look at these in the future, and remember these days, when we had so much fun cooking and eating together. As many Hispanic families, we enjoy cooking and promoting our flavors and seasonings on all of our meals. Every night is a something different that our son enjoys. For my hubby and me, food is the right path to a persons heart. With every meal he cooks (yes he is the main cook) he gives us his heart and his love. When I cook, I do the same, (but his seasoning is better than mine) I gave my family a piece of my mother and grand-mama and aunties seasoning. Which is to the moon good. I don't want to ever forget, the many food ingredients we use, and all these amazing plates from all over the world that we prepare. One day is Italian, another day is Mexican, another day is Greek, another day is Caribbean, then American, Spanish even French. Yummy!!!!! We love Food! Kudos to world cuisine!!!!!
