"El Dia De Reyes" blog hop


If you came from Donna at http://donnamundinger-popsicletoes.blogspot.com/ you are absolutely on the right track. I want to thank Gabby at http://www.gabycreates.com/ for being such a wonderful host and working so hard to make this blog hop possible. If you started my on my blog, but wish to see all blogs form the very beginning, go to Gabby's blog.
"El Dia De Reyes" (or The 3 Wise Men Day) in Puerto Rico is a very important Holiday on the Christmas season. Although children here (PR) do get some  toys on Christmas Day it is on El Dia De Los Reyes Magos when they get most of the toys  and clothes as gifts. Many towns celebrate this day with people impersonating the Reyes Magos and giving away candies and gifts. It is a reason for families to throw big parties and family gatherings. In Puerto Rico, children do not put their shoes on the window like they do in Mexico. What they do is they put water and fresh cut grass near their beds for the Wise Men camels to eat. The next morning, the grass is gone and the children wake up to open the presents the "Reyes" put under or beside their beds.

**** Si llegaste aqui del blog de  Donna en  http://donnamundinger-popsicletoes.blogspot.com/, estas en el camino correcto. Quiero agradecer a Gabby el haber hecho posible que este "blog hop" fuera posible. Si no has visto las blogs anteriores al mio, puedes ir al principio del "blog hop" a http://www.gabycreates.com/  para que los veas todos.
El Dia De Reyes en Puerto Rico es un dia de fiesta muy importante. En este dia, se hacen grandes fiestas y reuniones familiares. En algunos pueblos, algunas personas se visten como los Reyes Magos y regalan dulces y otras cosas a los ni~nos. Distinto a Mejico, los ni~nos en Puerto Rico colocan agua y yerba para los camellos cerca de sus camas. A la ma~nana siguiente, los ni~nos abren ansiosos los regalos que Los Reyes les dejaron debajo o junto a sus camas.

For my project I decided to make a picture frame.
****Para mi proyecto, hice un marco de retratos.
  • Paint a picture frame blue with acrylic paint.(***Pinte un marco de retratos con pintura de acrilico azul).
                                             
  • Stamp and color The Three Wise Men, The Nativity and a Star. I used "NACIMIENTO" stamp set from Stampin Up *** (Estampe con sellos de goma Los 3 Reyes Magos, El Nacimiento y la Estrella. El juego de sellos usado fue: NACIMIENTO de Stampin Up.)
    • Embellish cut out shapes with heat embossing, crystals or rhinestones, etc. ***(Decore los cortes con cristales, "heat embossing)



  • Tear some strips of sand color cardstock, shape with your hands and ink. Glue them to the picture frame to make the "sand". ***(Desgarre con la mano pedazos de cartulina color arena. Estruje con la mano, sombree las orillas y peguelos al marco)
    • glue the 3 Wise Men and the Nativity to the "sand". ***(Pegue los Reyes y el Nacimiento a la "arena")
    • glue the star to "sky". ***(Pegue la estrella al "cielo")


  • Glue dome alphabet stickers  for the title: " El Dia De Reyes". ***(Pegue letras que formen el tiulo: El Dia De Reyes")
  • Add Stickles randomly on the blue frame to simulate stars. ***(Ponga un poco de Stickles para simular mas estrellas).
  • Put a picture inside the frame. ***(Ponga una foto dentro del marco).
