Where do I begin???

"Scrapbooking is personal. It’s about opening up and sharing your own life. It makes us human. It makes us reflect on who we are and where we want to be in life. It helps us discover the beauty (the art) in the midst of our life, and the life in the midst of our art." -Ali Edwards

This is a photo of my beautiful little Mami that I took yesterday. She's holding her little doll that Papi gave her. It was the last gift he ever bought for her right after Easter and she loves it. He passed away in 1996. I miss him dearly! I brought her doll over so that she would feel at home in my house. What a blessing to have been raised by these two loving parents...

I just saw the sneak peek of Life Artist, Ali Edwards' new book, and I MUST have it! Ali does a great job of helping you look at life in a different way. She inspires you and helps you celebrate the everyday. Look at this sample page.

I'm having so much fun with my August Cocoa Daisy kit!!! I love all the goodies in it... Here's a peek at a couple of my layouts...You can see more here.

Oh, but wait, there's more! Have you seen this beauty? It's the sneak peek of the September Cocoa Daisy kit and the guest designer is the talented Jamie Waters. I LOVE it!

Hugs to all and happy scrappin!
