Abby and Gaby started this event back in 2010! That's 4 years ago already! This is one of Abby's favorite days to celebrate because of the meaning of what Day of the Dead is, and what can be better than a super cute cartoon to illustrate what Day of the Dead is!

Abby y Gaby comenzaron con estos blog hops desde el 2010! Pueden creer que ya son 4 años! Este es uno de los dias preferidos para celebrar de Abby porque le encanta el mensaje que tiene, y que mejor manera de explicarlo con una linda caricatura!!



It's all about celebrating LIFE!
El Dia de los Muertos se trata de celebrar la VIDA!!

The most widely known tradition following this holiday is the making of the altar to welcome the spirits that come to visit. I have always wanted to make one, but had not had the chance to really do it. So this year I decided to give it go and here is what my altar looks like 


I had a lot of fun gathering the different elements that need to be part of the altar. The centerpiece of my altar is dedicated to my beloved angel my sister Jeni. I also added each of my grandparents on the side of her and my great-grandparents on the bottom. Recently my uncles Adolfo and Pablo passed away so they joined in on the celebration. 


There is mexican bread, sugar skulls, candles, tequila, incense and lots of flowers. 


The different elements are supposed to represent things that the dearly departed enjoyed and also have things to represent the four elements: Water, Fire, Wind and Earth.


The papel picado which is one of my favorite elements represents the wind, and I had a lot of fun making these and using Dilo en Español stamps to decorate them with.


As a thank you for stopping by I am giving away the svg file to make your own papel picado

I have to admit since I got my Cameo my little cricut has been collecting dust, so I made it a challenge to myself to get in there and create something for today .... boy was it interesting LOL I forgot how to do layers!! But thank goodness I am smart (well not really) and was able to figure it out to make this little puppy:





look at him isn't he adorable!! I love create a critter is my FAVORITE!!!





Well that was FUN, when was the last time you used your cricut? I have so many cartridges I really need to get in there and use it more often. Now that I sort of got the hang of it again I am gonna try and use it more often so I don't forget LOL 

Now head on over to Sandy's Blog and check out her creation.

She has lots of cute new files and as always the design team is bringing you some great projects to get your creative juices flowing

and speaking of creating, I made this cute little bear into a card .... she was just begging for my cute little peachy bear faces, which go perfectly with Melin's bears. 


She is actually a he, but look what a little girly face and a cute little bow can do!! This bear is from the Brain Freeze Bear Set


I also used the Basic Lattice Card set for the background and card base. The face is from the peachy keen teddy bear faces.


Come and show us what you make with your PCW files, we love to see your projects!!! 

I entered this card on the following challenges 
-Addicted to Stamps: anything goes

Cameo Creations Challange: 2 Shades of Blue

Hello and Welcome to another day of inspiration over at


for todays inspiration we bring a simple challenge:

2 Shades of BLUE

So dust out those cameos and get those blues out and share with us your cameo creations. 

Well here is what I came up with:




My son is a big fan of Sonic and he had been bugging me about making it for him, I had it made but it was a pain to do it so small (about 4 inches tall) so I did it again this time at max height (11.5) and it was so much easier to put together.  As you can see he has some smudges from my son playing around with it, but he looks very cool.

You can download the file for your personal use HERE
