A birthday and a layout

I've been meaning to post for a few days, but time escapes me. I've been busy working, spending time with family and friends, and even scrapping! There just aren't enough hours in the day for me to accomplish everything. I'm sure you all would agree!

I do have some great news! My step dad Jorge received some very positive feedback from his oncologist. It looks like he won't need any more chemo and his tests came back well enough where we feel the cancer is controlled. He will continue to see the doctor once a month and he will have some more tests done in 2-3 months so we'll keep praying for a full recovery. In the meantime, we cherish every moment and we celebrate. Jorge's 56th birthday was last Friday and we took him to CVI.CHE 105, a delicious Peruvian restaurant in Downtown Miami. He LOVED it! And so did we... we stuffed ourselves with mouthwatering dishes and we will surely be back for more.





I have a few new layouts to share, but I just haven't photographed them yet. So, here's one I did a couple of weeks ago -- it's a lift from the Two Peas gallery. I used the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly paper and chipboard stickers, a Making Memories felt accent, and my apron lace border punch.



This coming weekend, I'm taking a class with DONNA DOWNEY at Scrapbooks 'n Stuff so I am looking forward to creating an adorable mini album and learning new techniques.

Be back soon...

Peace and happy scrapping,
Vanessa
