A Birthday and Some Layouts

Last weekend, we celebrated my BFF's 35th birthday! We had a fabulous time as always with my favorite ladies. We got together to scrap, but I think the least thing I did was actually scrap. LOL! We ate and talked and laughed and ate and talked and opened presents and ate and laughed... you get the message!

Jacqueline baked not one, but TWO delicious cakes. This little baker really knows what she's doing!!! She even stuffed one of the cakes with strawberries and it was moist and mouthwatering. The other one was heart-shaped and covered with chocolate frosting. The heck with Lucila and Edda! Let's just place an order with Cakes by La Princesa Jacqueline!

And the sweetest gift of the day had to be this beautiful, personalized pillow that our dear friend Maritza made for Ady... Isn't this gorgeous? I love those colors. Boy is she a special friend :-)

And now back to the scrapping part... well, since I wasn't "feeling it," I just scrap lifted a couple of layouts from the Daisy Divas over on the Cocoa Daisy gallery. I started playing with my June kit, Verandah, and I created these two layouts about Father's Day and Jorge's birthday.

When I was feeling more creative I sat down in the evenings this week and I made these three additional pages with the same kit. I really liked that these papers had a more masculine look to them since I always tend to go for the girly colors and design elements. This time, I was able to focus on some of the men in my life, including Jorge (my step dad), Pepe (my father-in-law) and my honey bunny.

Thanks for all the sweet comments about my Puerto Rico photos on my previous post. It was really and truly a FABULOUS vacation and an emotional journey for me!

I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

Peace and happy scrapping,
