IN THE DESERT! - Digital Layout

Hi everyone!..., hope you're having a great day so far.  Today I have a layout I made inspired by several challenges.  I loved the sketch from the get go, even though I made some twist to accommodate the photos.  I also made the cactus clipart specially for this layout, and although I still need a lot of practice, I am very happy with the final results... Anyway, here it is, and hope you like it!

Hello everyone, just wanted to let you know that I got a call from my doctor with great news.  All my test came out perfect... WOO-HOO!  and I want to take the time to thank my doctors for doing all you have done for me... Randy Fink, my gynecologist, Nicholas Lambrou, my oncologist, Beatriz Amendola, my radiologist, and all their staff envolved in my treatment and recovery process.  You have been the best and I am always grateful for that.  And for the loves of my life, my husband and son, for always being there for me, and Foxy, my dog, for always being next to me and follow me everywhere, even in my bad days of chemo 4 years ago.  LIFE IS GREAT! 

So, if you haven't got your year check up, go for it... it is very important to stay on top of your health.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR - Greeting Card and a FREE sentiment

Hello everyone!...  Hope you are having a great Valentine's Day.  I got a stunning gift from Ken and Steven. It took me by surprise, cause after all I have spent in the past year, I was not expecting it and I am glad it was NOT chocolate, cause I have been working out non stop for a couple of months already.
Since I did not have anything for them (shame on me), I have an awesome dinner almost ready, candles, a clean hut tub so I can rub a dab my hubby tonigh... hehehe and plans to go party tomorrow at "La Covacha", a super fun latin music disco here in Miami, not only that, but I am meeting with my friend Mary Lou, whom I haven't seen for over 3 years, and we live only 20 minutes away... but hey, I am complying with my New Year resolution of seeing my friends in person, and not only in cyber-space. YAY!  

And a FREEBIE for you!...  Click HERE to download the file
