All So Pretty

Good afternoon mis amigas (my friends),

Didn't have time till this afternoon to post the cuties I have to show you, but here they are. So sit back, and enjoy...

First off , last Tuesday, we went to my son Jeremy's class for some activities in his classroom. The kids get to read books they've written and illustrated to their families, they really do a good job and feel so proud

Remember a couple of banners or pennants I've shown before and I mentioned they're for my son's second grade teacher? Well, here they are hanging in the classroom. What do you think?

They look really nice in person!

If you are a Cath Kidston fan like I am, Barnes and Noble carries her stationery line, notebooks,stickers, recipe holder. Simply gorgeous!

I'm planning on using the paper for some projects, never mind writing on them!

And I received my "Celebrate" banner from Bristol. When I opened up the package and saw the banner, I became speechless. It is so beautiful, I love it!!

On the back, she decoupaged the poem, "Our Playhouse". It's a beautiful poem written by her great-grandfather, this really took my breath away! Thanks again Bristol.

She also sent me many wonderful little extras, I'll be creating with these for sure!!

And speaking of Bristol, she is opening her website store, Honey Bend Vintage on May 2nd ( this is also my 16th wedding anniversary!). Mark it on your calendars, she'll have many fun things!

I love anything France or french related, so when I saw this paper Eiffel Tower on Krisl Hurst'sEtsy store, I knew I had to get one!

OOH LA LA, tres magnifique!

Did you all enjoy all these pretties? I hope so!

Till next time.

Big hugs,

Hola Chica!
Hi Rosa, Just discovered your blog and it is truly great. Noticed you just started your blog this year. I did to, but my blog is still a little plain, I'm not that great with the computer, still learning, sometimes I just want to kill it. Ha! Ha! Drop by and visit. I will come back again.

Irma :)

Rosa - I followed you here from Irma's. I love all your handiwork - I can't do all that detail, but I do like to paint!

Just wanted you to know that my daughter's name is Hayley, too, spelled the same - it was my Nannie's maiden name. I didn't know anybody named Hayley 19 years ago when mine was born, and now I hear it all the time! Your daughter is a beautiful young lady and I know you will enjoy each other as she grows up! Take care - Vickie
