For us, who still believe and dare to dream.

The lyric is below the video, which only has the cd cover. So my suggestion is for you to press PLAY and sing it along reading the lyrics. I bet you´ll feel a lot inpired to live life, no matter what. Just leave me a comment telling how did you feel... =)

The lyric:

It´s Your Dream
(Nikka Costa)

Looking at tomorrow sets you free from yesterday
Giving up your sorrow is the key to find your way
Living for the moment is the only way to grow
Life is what you make it by now
You ought to know

It's your dream so take it
It's your dream go make it all come true
Right now
It isn't very hard to do if you believe in you

It's your right so free it
It's your light so see it to the end
My friend
Cause you're never gonna pass this way again

And if sometime along the way you stumble and should fall
At least you know inside you you're giving it your all
Don't be ashamed of losing and you'll find you just might win
Don't be afraid of giving and love might just begin

It's your dream so take it
It's your dream so make it all come true
Right now
It isn't very hard to do if you believe in you

It's your song so sing it
It's your bell so ring it to the end
My friend
Cause you're never gonna pass this way again
No you're never gonna pass this way again...

I hope you all enjoyed it and got more inspired. I did...

And wait for my first alone Challenge, having the Digi Doodle Doo as my sweet Sponsor! =)

The winner will get 2 doodles from Coley, who designs them, and is so so generous to be here with her work, even if she cannot be here with her "presence". Thanks, Coley! =D

See you next post!

Another Docerela Creations FUN CHALLENGE!

Hi, Everyone!

It´s time for another great Challenge for Docerela Creations!  
It´s time for another great chance to win some really lovely stamps!  ;-D

So this Challenge is all about going to the beach, playing under the Sun, longer days, fun, fun, FUN!!!
What? Didn´t ring a bell yet? This challenge is all about SUMMER! Yes, it´s Summer Time for you guys (I said for YOU guys because I live in South America, so here´s coming the Winter... lol!).

For this Challenge you have to make any project using the SUMMER as your theme, as your inspiration. It can be a Card, a 3D project, a Layout, anything your creativity tells you to make about Summer.

Let´s see what I prepared for you. Here´s my project:

 I live in a town named Niterói, very close to Rio de Janeiro, and both cities are linked by the Rio-Niterói Bridge. We can also go to Rio by ferries. Only 12 minutes on the new ones. So we can view from our Icaraí Beach, only a block and a half from home, the Sugar Loaf, the Corcovado (the Christ)... Wow! It amazes me EVERYTIME I see it.   =D

For this Layout I used:
- Docerela Creations Portuguese Stamp Set III;
- Some designer papers I won from a friend (I can´t recall the brand, so sorry!);
- A green textured cardstock as the base for the Layout from DCWV;
- A doodle done by myself (the Sun, of course... I LOVE the Sun!);
- Musical Tissue Tape by Tim Holtz (LOVE him also!);
- Label punch;
- Circle punch;
- Markers and ink.

Below you can see the stamp I used from the Set III of Docerela Creations Portuguese Stamps. It´s written "Ótimo verão", which means "Great summer" in Portuguese.   =)

Here you can take a look at the stamp set:

Well, Summer Time...
Remembers me some great songs, some that stayed in our minds (and hearts), like... "Summertime".   =)
But as I´m Brazilian and I´m always showing on my projects the Portuguese Docerela Creations Stamp Sets, I decided to put on the journaling a brief part of an old Summer song we had here, called "SOL DE VERÃO" which means "SUMMER SUN" in Portuguese. I LOVE this song!

 It says on the lyric: "It´s Summer! Good sign! It´s time... to open up the heart and dream..." by the band Roupa Nova (Brazilian band).

And below you can take a look at the photos a little bit closer, taken buy my brother, who still doesn´t know how great photographer he is... but I always remind him that.   ;-)

So I guess that´s it for now.

I really hope you come to visit all the Design Team Blogs and join us on this bright and colored Summer Challenge sharing your project with us and entering for a great chance to win one of Docerela Creations Stamp Sets! And leave some love and your comment!   =D
