Scrappin Kids Weekend Challenges

I participated in Scrappin Kids' challenges last weekend. I remembered enjoying myself during the last weekend challenge sometime last September and was so excited to do it all over again.

There were 5 challenges all in all that were posted on Saturday evening and were due at 5pm the next day. I was able to finish four of the challenges. I liked my layouts although after posting them, I felt I could have added a few more embellishments. I probably was feeling the pressure of finishing them right away. :-) But nevertheless, I'm just happy I was able to scrap photos that have been sitting on my desk for weeks and even months. Anyway, here are my layouts and a card:

Vet yesterday Writer today ? tomorrow

Materials: Basic Grey patterned papers, sticker alpha and sticker elements, Heidi Swapp flower, Prima say it with crystals, Staedler pen, Carl corner rounder puncher

Journaling: Last year, you were sure you wanted to be a veterinarian. This year, you claim you want to be a writer. I wonder what you'd want to be next year. But whatever it is, know that Daddy and I will always support you. Be happy always!

Journaling: We love lechon (roasted pig)! Any special occasion would mean we'll be having lechon and you are starting to realize that. During Abu's birthday, you wouldn't stop asking for pieces of the suckling pig. Finally Mama Flory gave you the whole leg to bite on. You sat contented, nibbling away. Welcome to the family, Alyssa!
