Sharing some more good news!

Back to blogging!

 hi again. it's me returning after almost 4 weeks away and this time i'm staying put for a while. i have not done any real steady blogging for a while with holiday traveling and all but now with back to school time i am ready to resume my routine again. i am going to ease myself back into it though.

 i trust that none of you have missed my blogging too much since i know many of you have had a summer full of activities also and i have probably spared you a few mondays without a blog entry. 
well...... i'm heeeeere and i'm glad to be back!

being away from scrapping was the hardest thing of all and i found myself missing keeping in touch with all of you. thanks for keeping my blog going without me and your comments coming.  by the way, i just checked the comment section and i am hoping all of your comments are going through ok?? and i see the spammy ones being filtered as they are supposed to.

the only page created while away:

 and some pages i created during the weekend:

it's monday today which means i have a brand new freebie for you all! i did not want to start blogging without giving away a new set of word art. hope you like it.

at last,  i have returned to the scrapbooking/blogging world and it's good to be back! 

have a super duper week!!!


I've been published!

happy monday everyone! i've known for a while but i just didn't have the time to tell you about it. i've been published in scrapbook news and review magazine! yey!  you can find four of my layouts under one of the magazine's monthly features "by style: graphic and modern".
it is always such a nice feeling to have my layouts make an appearance among so many talented artists. thanks snr!!

here's this week's freebie for you. hope you enjoy it!

... and my only page from last week:

... and yes, i am still away from home but things are going well and hope to be back soon.
thanks for the links to your layouts using my freebies - i really enjoy seeing them!
have a fantastic week!


So much for getting back to routine!

due to some unexpected circumstances i am going to have to be away again! (by the time you are reading this i'll be away from miami once again)
 not to worry, it is nothing terrible - just that having family and business back home in el salvador means sudden circumstances arising which require for me to be there.
i don't have a returning date so far but i know that at least it is going to have to be before the beginning of the school year which is august 23rd.
i am bringing my old laptop with me so this time i am hoping to still be able to post on mondays as i usually do and have some time to create some new word art too.

awesome kit - thanks so much kalina!!
