Bird is the word..."Wish", Scrap-It-Lah & OUAS challenges

Hello!!!  It's time for the Bird Is The Word challenge and we have a new word to use in a layout or project and it's... "WISH".
I made this page about the lovely relationship between my kids because I wish they keep on supporting and loving each other through their lives, like they have been doing until now.
You need inspiration for this challenge go to see the beauties that the DT made......HERE

I was visiting some blogger friends the other day and then I found this site and I saw the picture of my sweet and lovely friend Eila, well she's having a challenge in Scrap-it-Lah and my sweet friend Helen is in the DT so I want to support them.  I combined my WISH page with Eila's challenge....

Eila's challenge..

Journaling Criteria:  A most embarrassing/awkward/uncomfortable moment
or ... more details.....HERE
I have some embarrassing moments but this one...Won!!  because my hubby told everybody!!
Two years ago, we had a cruise trip and I was going to buy some Holland cheese, bags and liquors that you can find a better price in these islands but I didn't want to carry the bags all day.  Many stores have a service that they send the bags directly to the ship, you only need to fill a document with some information and...voila!!!
I was in that store and found a fabulous bag, some liquors bottles and cheeses and I went to ask the store employee if they have the service to the!!
I really don't know what was on my mind yet...
I was thinking in "Spanglish" and instead of saying
that, I asked......
Do you ship to the BARC????
I never forgot the expressions of the people around me, specially my husband who opened his eyes and started laughing.  And of course, as soon as I said "Barc" I realized my mistake and I tried to fix it.
In Spanish the word "ship" means "barco" and I eliminated the last letter "o" and tried to make it sound like an English word....that was the funniest thing, lol!!!...  new word...Barc...

    Hi!! I hope everybody is fine!!  I'm going to show you two pages and the first one is "A Special day" I made it for Paper Trail cardboard challenge and for Scrapfit workout #54-It's all Adds Up. 
    For the Scrapfit workout you need to create a layout with lot and lot of number.  I used the new Graphic 45 line "ABC Prime" these papers and tags have many numbers and clocks that I loved to use on my page.  This ABC Prime line is Beautiful and you can find it at The Paper Trail Store.
    For the Paper Trail Cardboard challenge you need to use cardboard in your page.  I really love cardboard so this challenge was a piece of cake for me!  I used the cardboard like my photo mats and  a small pieces like embellishments.
