Getting crafty... Finally!!

I got the idea for these flowers from Prima's Lolipop flowers. I absolutely love them but they are expensive and very hard to find.

So, I did a little google-ing and came across this very cool You Tube video turorial on how to make them.

See video here.

In case it wasnt obvious, mine is the green one :)

And then I came across Kenner Road's January kit sneak peeks and I knew I not only had to have the kit, but I had to try to make some flowers for my self.
Those gals are so incredibly talented. Their DT gallery is insane.

I'm also getting the urge to try some of the cool techniques Tim Holtz has been showing on his 12 tags of Christmas series.

OK, off to do some shopping.

I want to get into the Christmas Spirit...

Really I do, but it's just not happening for me this year so far.

My tree is still not up, there are no Christmas decorations... I feel very blah.

I made this little digi page with a very cool and FREE kit I downloaded from 2 Peas.

Pics are from 2 years ago and some of my all time fave Christmas pics of Natalia.

Onto my love for all things Twilight....

The blog takeover crisis if 2008 is over. I'm pretty sure y'all enjoyed it quite a bit.

I know this is how Juan sees my dear Twilight characters...

Whatev!!! I'm still loving it and will keep on watching the movie and re reading the books as much as possible.

Have a great week.

We have a new challenge up at BASB. Waleska chose a very cool ad for us to lift and here's what I came up with...

Since I'm airing all my obsessions lately, here's a LO I made for my gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff bags.

Stay tuned, for I have been warned that my blog will be hijacked in the near future.
I got my hubs to watch Twilight with me (yes, I did!!!!!!!) and he has a review coming soon.

Bows her head down in shame...

Yes. I admit it, in case it wasn't completely evident already. I am a hard core Twilighter, member of Team Edward.

I just had to put it out there so you know there's gonna be LOTS of Twilight talk in this blog from now on.

So, there you have it.

Other than obsessing over teenage vampires and werewolves, I have been working on custom orders for Handmade by ANILU.

I have been lazy and have not made anything to upload on Etsy, but I am still very much working on my jewelry and if you want something for Christmas, just drop me a line at:
and I'll make anything you'd like for you.

Here are a few custom pieces I made this week.

I have to go clean this house.

Have a great Tuesday, loves!

That's our girl.

She made the Principal's Honor Roll!!! Only 3 kids out of her whole kindergarten class got top honors.

I couldn't stop smiling all day and I felt as proud as can be.

Juan and I are both overachievers. I always knew she'd be one too, but when it actually happened... OMG, it felt great!

She was so happy too! She came home and called her daddy right away to brag.

Having kids is just plain cool.

Onto Twilight... By now I have seen the movie 3 times and here's what I have to say about it...
Read review here

**Be warned, it is spoiler heavy**

Have a great Thanksgiving week.

It's finally here!!!!

Twilight opens today and Edward is screaming my name.

I am off to the first of many, many times I will be watching that movie.

Who could resist this face?????

Before I leave, let me share the amazing sunset I caught while driving home this past Tuesday.

Man, I love living in Miami.

Enjoy your weekend and go see Twilight too!!!

More Holiday cheer

I have been playing a lot with my Christmas kit form Karla Dudley @ After Five Designs.

It's Thursday so I can finally share the whole thing!

It's full of endless possibilities for Christmas LOs.

And, the super cool letter and number stickers. It's like she read my mind!!!

You know you want AND need these!!!

Here are a few pages I've created with it ...

Yes, I'm in love with that red/white pp.

All these LOs were created using Karla's incredibly cool templates. Love that you can use them for any page, not just Christmas.

It's available today at After Five Designs.

Happy Thursday!

Judi's idea

My amazingly kind friend, Judi had the great idea of putting together a scrapbook of LOs made by Aleida's pals, to give to her hubby and kids.

This is the LO I made for it with my new found love for digi scrapping.

Tags, staples, butterfly by Karla Dudley @ After FIve Designs.

I hope they like it and know how much we loved and miss her.

I absolutely LOVE templates. They make it less frustrating to scrap when my mojo takes a vacation.

I have to go watch the commercial again. And again, and.....

How did I miss this one?

I just found this incredible kit club. Kenner Road and I am in love!!

Mi Lucita...

My gorgeous Grandmother passed away yesterday morning.

I have lost a piece of my heart...

She was a force of nature.

Larger than life.

She left and indelible mark in my life and I will miss her presence in this world every second of my life.

Ma'am, step away from the Mac, please.

Um, I think not.

I am so addicted to digi, it's not even funny!

I love that I can make different versions of the same LO if I feel like changing the colors.

Patterned paper, stitches, borders, butterfly brad, circles by Karla Dudley @ After Five Designs.

Patterned papers, labels, stickers, hand written brush, butterfly, brad and stitches by Karla Dudley @ After Five Designs.

As you can see, my love for those butterflies in never ending!

Another thing I love about this, is being able to change the size of my pics in a second.
I had never used such big pics on my LOs and I am kinda liking it. A lot.

A new week, also means new digi kit from Karla!!!

Look at this beeeeoutiful one. All about pohotography.

I am gonna be playing with this baby a lot... Here's a little peek.

Have a groovy Tuesday.
