Chocolate Monsters

Funny me, I finished Sketch #69 of Creative Scrappers first because I thought that was the next sketch. Although Sketch #67 was a hurried layout, I liked the outcome. :D Here's the sketch:

And here's my layout. :D Thanks for looking! Check out how the rest of the DT interpreted the sketch in the Creative Scrappers blogsite. :D

Chocolate Monsters
Title: Chocolate Monsters

Journaling: Nadine and Raya are such chocolate monsters! We got this box of cookies covered with Belgian chocolate from Tita Bel, my Papa's sister in the US, and the girls enjoyed every cookie in that box! It was so funny because Nadine kept on saying, "This is good! This is very good! This is very very good!" with every bite. Yes, they just love chocolates! :)

My husband is the best!

He went to our favorite Booksale store and bought me these....

Didn't I say he was the best? :D :D :D

Just so you know and so that I will never forget...

My layout is up at Journaling Junkie today. I have to admit that I'm not so happy how this layout turned out. First of all, I was so excited to use this rub on for this challenge but I failed to place it appropriately that part of the rub on can't be seen. :-( I didn't know how else to remedy it. I guess I just have to leave it as is.

Another thing is that I wanted it to be a lengthy message to Nadine. I wanted to journal about things I hope she'll know or realize eventually. But my journaling paper was too small. I was going to write in between the lines but --- I don't know why I didn't so it turned out to be short lang and it didn't have the essence that I wanted to convey. :-(

I guess my consolation is that I like how the layout design turned out. :D Thanks to Studio Azul for the July Kit. :D

Just so you know and so that I will never forget...

Journaling: You have always seemed older than your age. I keep reminding myself that you are only 7 years old. Don't grow up too fast. Enjoy your life. I love you very much!

Pure Silliness

Yup, yup! I've been missing in action again for the past weeks! My sister got married last Friday and aside from family from our side coming in, my in laws came in also to join in the fun. Busy, busy, busy! Good thing, Kristine of Creative Scrappers gave out assignments early so I was able to finish DT requirements before all the fun started. :D

This is the sketch for the week:
And this is my layout:

Comfort Food

Journaling Junkie's challenge is to create a LO about an experience exploring any one of the 5 senses in detail or to describe one experience using all 5 senses. At the same time, the Kaya challenge for last month was to scrap a THING in your life right now using mixed alphas for your title. Perfect merge!

At the time I was thinking of my layout, I was definitely craving for ice cream! And Mier and I just finished this 800mL container in one sitting and I thought of taking a picture of it for my layout. The picture is starting me drool again....

Comfort Food

Journaling: When the going gets tough, the tough gets going and going and going. And what keeps me going is Coffee Crumble ice cream! The SIGHT of its golden brown cover and the FEEL of its cold container makes my mouth water! I can actually HEAR it call my name! The TASTE and SMELL are just heavenly! :D

My first layout as DT for Creative Scrappers is out! I'm so excited! For our first assignment, we are asked to create a layout using this sketch from Karan Gerber:

This is my take on the sketch. I used papers from Basic Grey's Wisteria Collection courtesy of Nette Madero of My Little Attic. I bought some albums from her and she sent me some papers and flower embellishments free with my orders! Thank you so much Nette! :D

I love this picture of Alyssa and me and how she holds on to my face when she kisses me. So adorable, really!! Thanks for looking! And do please check out the awesome creations of the rest of the DT over at Creative Scrappers. Thanks! :D

Title: Kiss

Journaling: I love it that she holds my face with her hands as if to steady it while she gives me a kiss! Alyssa - 22 months
