Bird is the word.."Trust", OUAS and The Color Room#86

Hi my blogger friends!  I hope all of you are doing well.  The last two weeks were very hard for me I got my two babies very sick with Dengue(it 's a virus transmitted by the mosquitoes) and Alexander got worse than Paola, he was dehydrated by much fever...  so no school for two weeks, no work for me, everything a little complicated here.   But now they're fine and started school today and I'm trying to get back to normal again. So I put my skates...trying to catch up!

I made this page for Bird is the Word challenge and the new word is....."Trust" .  I used an old photo of Paola when she was taking ballet classes. I remembered that she always asked me if she was dancing well and this word is perfect to this memory.
I used My Creative Scrapbook August main kit for this page.

Once Upon a Sketch and The Color Room

I combined the Once Upon a Sketch challenge with The Color Room #86 palette and Nadia's sketch and this was my inspiration......

In OUAS this time the journaling criteria focuses in "YOU" as a woman or any female in your life. I love to be a woman... love to wear and make dresses, use lipstick, being feminine but  for me the most treasure that I have like woman is being a Mother, there's  no words to describe how deep the love a mother feels for her kids...! It's priceless!!!
But at the same time we need to be wonder woman many time if not all the time, trying to make everything perfect, therefore I love this quote that I read...

Modern women are just bombarded. There's nothing but media telling us we're all supposed to be great cooks, have great style, be great in bed, be the best mothers, speak seven languages, and be able to understand derivatives. And we don't really have women we're modeling after, so we're all looking for how to do this.

I made this next page with the lovely and colorful line of papers "Buttterfly Dance" from Nikki Silvils.  The versatility of her paper's line is fantastic..they are double side papers with different fun designs that you can cut and use like embellishments, you can see an example on my page with all the lovely butterflies that I cut from "Flamingo Butterfly" paper.  This was my inspiration...
