Celebrations of the Heart Blog Hop!

Hello! What a beautiful theme for a hop! Alina invited me to participate on this awesome blog hop! She is celebrating her dear father and BFF. Hence the name of the hop, Celebrations of the Heart. If you are coming from Mary, then you are heading on the right path! But if you just happen to be visiting me, make sure you start with Alina!!! You want to make sure you comment on all blogs to make sure you are elegible to win her AWESOME prices!!!

I decided to honor, once again, my dear abuelito (grandpa). I hope I don't bore you with all my projects about him!!! :) I will place this LO on a frame and give it to my mama to place on her wall. 

I used the following:
Page-Maps sketch
DCWV Tattered Time Stack( cute tickets from this stack also!)
My Creative Time "You're My Best Buddy" stamp set
Tule, ribbon, bling from collection
