God Sent

This was for a Mothers and Daughters Creations challenge last week following a sketch. I was able to finish it way ahead of time but failed to take a photo of it for submission. (So sorry Tamara!) Anyway, I used SEI papers here and Bo Bunny rub ons from the MDC store.

Kaya Challenge: Just the Boys

I've finished this layout for sometime already (as promised Bjay! Mwah!) for the current Kaya challenge but haven't taken a picture til now. Honestly, I prefer not to stamp. I don't like the mess and the cleaning up after. But I do have a number of stamps in my stash that definitely needs to be used. :D

This photo was taken on Good Friday last year when the boys of my family made the Stations of the Cross up the hill. It was nice seeing them all together. :D

Journaling: We usually all go up to Malasag on Good Friday but this year, only the BOYS did the tedious trek. It was nice seeing them all bond together... Just the Boys. Good Friday April 2008

Techniques Used:
Non-stamp: I used Alyssa's shoe to make a foot print on the patterned paper
Stamp: Autumn leaves journaling stamp on the tag, letter stamps for the word "the"

GDT: Creative Scrappers

I know I've neglected this blog for the longest time. We're still in Cavite now but we'll be going back home to Cagayan on Thurs. Can't wait! :D

I just couldn't pass the opportunity to write about me being this week's Guest Designer at Creative Scrappers! Yup! I've been admiring this blog site for months already since the beginning of the year and I just love the layouts I've created using their sketches. So when Kristine asked me if I wanted to be GDT for April, oh wow! Could I pass up this opportunity? Guess not! :D LOL!

Here's Sketch #49 and my layout is Loving Elmo. Thanks for looking!

Spring Basket for MDC

It has been quite a busy week for us since we've arrived here in my in laws place in Cavite. I've tried scrapping here but realized that I forgot to bring so many things like glue, scissors, trimmer, pens, etc. Hehehe. Good thing my sister in law, Sherly, is a scrapper herself and has so generously lent me a lot of her tools. :D Will post my layouts when I've taken pictures of them. I've learned to scrap with limited supplies too! I brought some kits along with me and have had to stick to just what I have. Really challenging! :D

In the meantime, the latest challenge for Mothers and Daughters Creations is up! We were tasked to make a spring themed basket. Here is what I made. I used papers from Best Creations to create my basket. Happy Easter everyone!

Moose Balls

Challenge 54 at Journaling Junkie is to showcase a sequence of photos with journaling. I used these photos taken last December 2008 when Nadine and Raya spent the morning making "Moose Balls" with my sister-in-law. It was a fun filled morning although the girls didn't really like the truffles they made. Daddy and Mommy enjoyed it instead. Hehehe!

You all had fun bonding on our last day in Manila.

Good News Comes in Three's

I read my 90++ emails after just a few days of being in absentia and I have the following good news to share:
  1. My layout, You, won the Scrappin Kids challenge for the month of March. I have been an avid challenge taker at SK since I usually scrap for my kids anyway but this is my first time to win! I am just so happy and grateful to the RD and DT's of SK for choosing my layout. Thank you so much! :D
  2. Over at Mothers and Daughters Creations, the challenge for the week is to scraplift one of the DT's work. And guess what, all three current DT's scraplifted my work! What a surprise! Check out their work and my layouts at their site. :D
  3. I submitted my Free Spirit layout at the BG gallery and they loved it! Now, I have two layouts at my gallery there. Woohoo!
I can't help but grin from ear to ear. This really made my day and made my hectic week so worth it. :D
