Cinco de Mayo & Serendipity May DT work

Today is Cinco de Mayo and like every Cinco de Mayo our house is always smelling yummy... This year the kids and hubby requested tortilla soup. Mmmmm So I cooked the chicken with some yummy Mexican spices and have that all shredded up and now it's on low in the crock pot with green chili's, diced tomatoes, potatoes, corn, cilantro, onions and some other amazing traditional Mexican spices. I made some corn tortillas today and I have them cut up in strips and baking in the oven with a little olive oil and garlic salt on them... They will be served ontop of the soup with some avacodo and some cut up cilantro.. Can you say mmmmmmmmmmm...

Now yall have to check out the kits this month at Serendipity. They are all amazing as usual. This month I worked with the "I deserve it all Kit"

It is filled with papers from Chatterbox and Scrap within reach and loaded up with embellishments from chatterbox, We R Memory Keeps and alphas from Scenic Route. This kit is a must have and is awesome for any project. Here are my projects that I did with the May I deserve it all kit.

I am having fun working with cards lately. I am not a big card maker so it's a challenge for me, but I am starting to get into my own little grove when it comes to cards not to mention I picked up that Cricut Wild Card cartridge... OMg that cartridge is amazing... A must have for any cricut user or card maker.

Serendipity is also having there very first ever month long CROP! Be sure to get your blinkie... Isn't it cute... hehe

My daugther and I

Every time Miranda brings a new friend home from school or we attend a school function and even when we are out shopping which we tend to do a lot people always comment on how much we look a like... I just laugh about it cuz it's funny, but Miranda hates it and really didn't think we looked much alike except for our eyes until we took these photos today.

Now she see's what other people see. LOL Although she has make up on and I don't.lol I still can't believe my baby girl is almost 15... It was a fun little photo shoot and now I have a bunch of photos of her and I together.
