I posted this in my cooking blog, but thought I should share this with you, since it is my other pastime cooking!
My Tia Nancy recently move to Spain and among all the wonderful things she gave me, she gave me this priceless treasure, well if you go to Amazon I can get about a pretty penny for it. But I would not sell it for all the tea in China.
Not only does it have all of my favorite recipes that Mi Abuelita use to make for me, it was a special gift from one of my favorite aunts.
Stay tune, going to start cooking my way through it. Making a few adjustments to make it a little healthier. Except when it come time to make those Platanos a la Tentacion (Temptation Plantains) that is just what they are a horrible, delectable sin.
I just love that I'm scrapping these old photos. I really need to put all the old photos from the kids in some kind of album. I may use an idea I saw at Scrap N' Chat to use the Project Life concept to scrap multiple pictures. I can scrap over 3 photo albums in just one album and make a special scrapbook page for those photos worthy of scrapping. If I decide to do this I will definitely post it here.
First I would like to wish everyone a HAPPY AND BLESSED Mother's Day!!!!
I have a lot of Blessings 3 of my own and 4 others that I love as if they were my own.
They have given me so much love and so many things to be proud to call them my children.

Monica, you are the best Daughter a mother could ever hope for. You are so loving always there for me, always willing to help. You are so beautiful inside and out. LOVE you! Natalie, You are a little mini me, I knew I had to get one of you because my mother said I will have a child just like me and I did YOU!!

I love you, miss you and I'm so proud of where you are at right now.
LOVE ALL THIS KIDS
Then there is Stan the Man, he really is the love of my life even if he has a way of making me so
mad and so crazy, he is so hard at time yet so thoughtful at others. He got up today early
did not allow me to come downstairs until all of it was done, and made this amazing breakfast for me.
He took my Pandora bracelet, got it cleaned and added 4 more charms. Guess I have to keep him for now ok for ever. Love you Stan!
Can you tell I had a great Mother's day.
Oh wait, he is now making a cake from scratch and coconut cake at that. YUMM!!! then he wonders why I can't loose weight. Really!
This one is for the color challenge at CSI. It's been a while since I did something shabby or distressed, this has a little of everything. The picture is of my Aunt Margot and myself back in 1962. I love this aunt of mine.
This one is for About a Boy challenge, I just love that I found this Challenge blog also. I needed to scrap pictures of my son as a baby and a boy, after all he just finished his first year of College, away from home. So I have a lot of scrapping to do.
This one is for another challenge blog I found on one of my favorite scrapper's blog Pat. It's called About a Girl and if you don't have a girls and you only have boys that's ok also she has one called About a Boy. Y'all know I'll be playing there also, since I have boys also. But for now lets talk about the girls.
We had to create a LO introducing the girls in our family and in mine we have a lot of those, well in my extended family since my grandparents on my mother's side had 7 girls and 1 boy. This time is about my 2 beautiful girl Monica and Natalie.
Did a little scrapping for NSD, even if it's Sunday. This one is for a Challenge at a new Challenge blog I found, Scrap Africa. I used the sketch from there. Also, for the 2peas challenge of using something camera/photography related. I added that little antique camera to my little cluster.
Sometimes, Stan the man likes to play a little. But don't worry it's never a lot. LOL!
