Happy Easter!

Well, I finished my first week of Karen Russell's Photography Workshop (just 9 more weeks to go!). The first week gave us a chance to learn all about the course, upcoming lessons, message boards, etc. Now the real work begins and boy is it a LOT of information... But I hope to learn TONS by the end of the class. Wish me luck! :)

Last week, we celebrated my mother-in-law's 65th birthday. Her birthday happens to fall on the same day as Mami's birthday so it's a little bit bittersweet for me. I love birthdays and celebrating with my loved ones, but of course I miss my Mami.

First, we went out to a local restaurant.

These are my in-laws...

And then we went to their house to sing happy birthday and cut a cake. It was a BIG cake made by a family friend (but the filling was a mystery to us!). It turned out to have a little taste of guava and some coconut.

Here are some layouts that I hadn't posted made with the February Cocoa Daisy kit. A couple of these were inspired by the design team.

I just started playing with my March Cocoa Daisy kit so I'll have more projects to share soon... I also received my delicious AC Dear Lizzy goodies. Wow. This collection is beautiful and perfect for spring!

Before I go, I want to wish you a Happy Easter holiday! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving me comments. I LOVE reading them. You all are the best!!!

Peace and happy scrapping,

Vanessa I LOVE my 50mm...After the class I used it for EVERYTHING! Well, except when I was shooting things that were far away. I'm selling mine because I'm switching to a Canon, and I had a Nikon before, so if you know anyone that wants a Nikon 50mm f1.4 lens, it's almost brand new, excellent condition and I give in a nice good quality uv filter with the purchase :)
Once Karen teaches you how to work it, you fall in LOVE with it.
As soon as I get my Canon I'm getting the 50mm lens. LOVE IT! It's great to use indoors and in low light situations. Super great lens.
