Celebrate Freedom Blog Hop Day 1

Hello there, 

Independence day is just around the corner and we are celebrating it in advance with a two day blog hop, this been the first day so welcome and thank you for joining us!

If you are coming from Madge over at Madge's Scrappin' Lounge you are on the right track if you just stumble across my blog please head over to our lovely hostess Lisa over at  Honey Bearz Designs.

As many as you know I'm not a native american in fact I'm cuban. I came to this country 14 years ago with my parents; my older sister was already here... It was a tough change but I embraced it and though I miss/love my country and the people I left behind (family and friends) I considered myself to be an AMERICAN. This country has giving me opportunities that I wouldn't have dream before and for that I'm very thankful. 

So now on to my project: I've made something different today...  Organizing my things I found a new canvas that I must have bought a couple of years ago so I thought what a great idea would be to create a mixed media project.... now I don't quite understand the meaning of it but it was fun smashing everything into the canvas... but please see for yourself.... 

Recipe: Blue Tissue Paper for background, Tim Holtz stamp set, Recollection & Paper Pizazz pattern paper, Gorjuss Girl Stamp colored with my favorite markers COPICS, stickers from my stash, White flower papers colored with Smooch Spritz.

Thank you for stoping by now head over to Diana at DaysiLove Creations for more amazing projects and don't forget to come back tomorrow. 

Here's the entire line up in case you get lost.
