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

This is the sketch...
Sketch:  Mary Thomas

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..
1-Sheet music, old paper book
3-Hand-stitching using embroidery floss.

more details....
Creative Imaginations and Teresa Collins Papers.

For the WISH challenge you will have one month to complete the project go to BIRD IS THE WORD to see all the details.  The first winner will receive a blog badge and a fabulous kit from Tidbitz in Time.
And for my friend Eila's challenge go ...Here.

Well, continuing in blogger land I dropped by Once Upon A... Sketch if you love to play with sketches this fabulous site is perfect for you!!
I love Nadia's sketches and the Journal criteria in her challenges but for my commitments with  some DT,  I really haven't had much time to play it, but now with the CCG situation and finished some DT..I can play again!!!

This is Nadia' sketch... 

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...


 - no dictionary results

No results found for barc:
