4th Annual Dia de los Muertos Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to our:
Hola y Bienvenidos a nuestro Blog Hop del

Thank you for joining us in celebrating Day of the Dead/El Dia de los Muertos with us!
We have a super cool line-up for you! 
Muchas gracias por venir a celebrar el Dia de los Muertos con nosotras!
Tenemos unas chicas super talentosas participando con nosotros en este bello blog hop! 

Gaby and I started this event back in 2010! That's 4 years ago already!
This is one of my favorite days to celebrate because of the meaning of what Day of the Dead has,
and what can be better than a super cute cartoon to illustrate what Day of the Dead is!
Gaby y yo comenzamos con este blog hops desde el 2010! Pueden creer que ya son 4 años!
Este es uno de mis dias festivos preferidos para celebrar  porque me encanta el mensaje que tiene, y que mejor manera de explicarlo con una linda caricatura!!

It's all about celebrating LIFE! My grandfather passed away 9 years ago and I still feel like if it was just yesterday... But, I choose to remember his AWESOME moments! He was a photographer and he LOVED it! He did what he LOVED with such a big passion and I admired and will always admire him for that. So, whenever we get a chance to visit his grave, we don't just go and take flowers and sit quietly.... oh no! we celebrate!! We take food and a blanket and chairs and out coolers and we talk about him...... his life and how wonderful it was to have been a part of his life!and yes I am crying!
El Dia de los Muertos se trata de celebrar la VIDA!! Mi abuelito fallecio hace ya 9 años y siento como si fuera ayer.... pero no me pongo triste, porque mejor me pongo a celebrar la vida tan MARAVILLOSA que tuve con el! Era fotografo y amaba lo que hacia. Hacia lo que amaba con tanta pasion y lo admire por eso y lo sigo admirando. Cuando tenemos la oportunidad de visitar su tumba, no nada mas le llevamos flores... llevamos hieleras, cobija, sillas y hasta comida! Nos sentamos junto a su tumba y nos ponemos a recordar momentos hermosos que pasamos con el.  

For my project Ann made this cute cut and I put it on a canvas bag.

my a in VERAS got a little warped! 
First trying this thin font on iron-on vinyl!

This is a famous saying in Spanish which means:
As you see yourself, I (once) saw myself; 
as you see me, (so) you will see yourself

and I made one more canvas bag, this one I made for my son's girlfriend!
