And It’s a Boy!!!

Some of you might remember last year around this time I was working on projects for the my God-daughter/niece’s wedding. I’m thrilled to announce that she is going have a baby in September. Recently we my family gathered for a gender reveal celebration and we were all happy to learn that it is a boy!

I had the honor of being the very first to know the gender since I had to prep the canvas and fill the balloon with colored water. Thank goodness they handed me the envelope only a couple of hours before, the knowledge would have been so tempting to share!


You can see the emotion on my sister’s face to learn she’s going to be a grandmother to a boy! We all shed a few tears of joy.

Congratulations to Alexandra and Brandon and their baby boy!

My sister and I have been pinning so many things on Pinterest as we get ready for the baby shower…and she’s due in September!

Baby Sprinkle with Love

My cousin’s daughter Rachael is having her 4th child and 3rd daughter! To celebrate this joyous occasion my cousin Leslie threw her a Baby Sprinkle. Here are a few pictures of the event. I have to say that Leslie outdid herself as usual and hosted a great Sprinkle!

My gift was a bouncy spinner baby thingy and I had it shipped to her house. I wanted her to see what I got her so printed a copy of it and had it dangle from the top of the inside.

Smash Cake Flip Album…Yum!

My niece Michelle Ugalde is a very talented photographer (check out her Facebook Page) so needless to say for her daughter’s first birthday cake she had a Smash Cake photo shoot. I printed the pictures and made a flip photo album (learned at my friend Vilmarie Maldonado’s class). By the way, my niece borrowed my cake plate and we dyed the ribbon with Tempting Turquoise ink to match her theme. I hope you like the finished product!

Meet the newest member of my family!

In May I went to a baby shower in Puerto Rico for my niece Ashly and yesterday she had her son. His name is Ian Roberto Rosado and he is adorable! I made this announcement for her using a template from My Digital Studio.

Puerto Rican Baby Shower

I was visiting my sister in Puerto Rico and celebrating her daughter Ashly’s baby shower. As Hispanics and Puerto Ricans we celebrate everything big! I made a few favors and decorations using My Digital Studio and my niece’s sister in-law made some awesome displays for the table centerpiece and the gift table.

This was my baby shower gift, 13 Onesies! I designed it on "My Digital Studio" and printed them on iron-on transfer paper. The first one says Just Born in Spanish "Recien Nacido". The next 12 have months 1 - 12 on them. An easy way to document each month with a picture!

The baby shower took place in an event hall (I did mention that we celebrate in a big way) this sign was hung in the entrance.
