I've been crafting with my nephew since he's known how to hold a crayon so since he was about 2 or 3. And he still loves crafting and making stuff. Today he stayed over and I took him to the pool and then after he ate and took a shower we made a mother's day card each. He wanted to learn how to color with the greeting farm stamps with the odorless mineral spirits and colored pencils so I taught him and was next to him the whole time so he wouldn't spill or get it on his hands. But he's a quick learner and I'm surprised and how nice his coloring came out and his card! I took some candid pictures of him and one of his card!TFL!

I wanted to make a what's coookin card and as I was making I was thinking whenever I cook(well I don't really cook but bake) so whenever I bake something like a cake or brownies it's kind of like crafting there's a mess! I have a ton of things to wash, there's icing on the counter and probably some on my shirt. So I made it a messy kitchen so it can be a bit more realistic. I even put some "icing"(puffy paint) on her apron TFL!

Recently my grandma gave away all of the pictures she had to family members and lucky me I had first dibs.So one of the pictures that I absolutely adore is this picture of my great grandparents in Cuba. I never met them being that they passed away before I was born but this picture really gives me an insight into how they were. The picture shows an air of confidence between them and I wanted to make a layout with the picture rather than just stick in a photo album. This was a toughie for me because I had to incorporate vintage and a beach theme into one layout with the items I already had. But with some K&Co Paper, my Cricut, some of my great grandma's lace and trim(which my grandma gave me as well) and one of my mom's crochet flower and I made it! The title is in Spanish being that it is in Cuba it says"The Beach in the 50s". TFL!

I'm going to be giving away 9 of my cards and will choose a winner Friday April 5th. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post to be entered.Thanks!
This card is for my Aunt who's turning 52 in 2 weeks. She's kind of down about getting older so I made her a card to show her turning 52 isn't a bad thing at all.TFL!
