Can I have the Elephant pls?

I love sketches!! For a scrapper with limited time (like me) I need these blueprints to help me finish my layouts ASAP. If not, I'm sure it would take me days or even weeks to finish them! One of my favorites sketch sites is Pencil Lines. Their sketches are easy to follow and gives a lot of leeway for creativity. :D For their Sketch #162, I created this layout:

Can I have the elephant pls?
Title: Can I have the Elephant pls?

Journaling: You noticed the elephant right away at the Prize Table. It was the only one there. So when your team won and Teacher Apple was giving out the prizes, you asked her if you can have the elephant instead. I love it that you are confident enough to ask for what you want and that you assert yourself. I love you Raya! Dec. 12, 2008

Here's a close up of the elephants:

I bought this Basic Grey paper years ago and kept them because I knew I would use them someday for a layout for Raya. Raya is just crazy over elephants! :D

Thanks for looking!

Live Your Life With Grace

Had a productive day yesterday. The girls didn't have school so we just stayed home and lounged around. We watched the Disney movie UP then they played with their LEGO toys. I was able to do a lot of scrapping and I'm happy with the results. :D

Here's one I did for A2Z Scraplets for their November Sketch Challenge. I used mostly items from the Studio Azul October Kit. Thanks for looking!

Journaling: I pray that you will grow up to be an independent and strong person; one who would live her potentials to the fullest. We love you, Nadine!

1 Tooth Less

Another great sketch is up at Creative Scrappers! This sketch was just perfect for a layout on Raya's first tooth loss. I've always loved stitching but don't have the time to do so anymore. Thank God for stitching rub ons! :D Thanks for looking and check out the DT's work on Sketch #79.

1 tooth less
Title: 1 Tooth Less

Journaling: Four days after she turned 6 years old, Raya's first tooth fell off. She is ecstatic! I have mixed emotions. My baby is growing up.

And of course, journaling! LOL!

This challenge closes on the 29th of November midnight GMT. Please leave a comment with the link to your URL over at Journaling Junkie or email Stefanie at Do join the fun!

I had fun doing this challenge. I used our family picture taken during my sister, Mabel's wedding last August. :D I also used Sketch #022 of Twisted Sketches. :D

Title: Glam

Journaling: It's fun to dress up once in a while and Tita Mabel's wedding was a great opportunity to do just that. Having 3 girly girls, we all definitely needed to look like princesses for the day. And we all felt like it too. :) 14 August 2009

My layout is up at Journaling Junkie! This week's challenge is to use loads of words (adjectives) to describe character traits. The bulk of the journaling should be made up of adjectives. :D By the way, this challenge closes on the 14th of November midnight GMT. Leave a comment at JJ with the link to your URL or email to be in the running for a prize.

This is actually an old layout of Alyssa. I used DCWV baby stickers as inspired by a prompt in a Simple Scrapbooks Play magazine. Love the outcome! Can't believe this baby is now my adorable 2 year old. Time does fly so fast!

Title: Adorable

Creative Scrappers #76: Imagine

Found myself in the mood to scrap yesterday and did 2 layouts. Yehey! Hope this will continue though. Anyway, one of the layouts is for a challenge at Journaling Junkie which will be revealed maybe next month. For the other layout I made, I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #76. I might not be in the DT of Creative Scrappers anymore but I still so love their sketches. And I love how my layouts turn out using their sketches. :D

Title: Imagine

Journaling: Only 1 year and 8 months but you can be left alone to play on your own. Your favorite toys are the Polly Pocket Princesses. You know already that they're "not for the mouth." It is good you have big sisters to learn imaginative play at an early age. :) Alyssa - May 2009

I was supposed to post my last layout for Creative Scrappers before leaving for Manila last October 28 but I just got so busy packing for five people and preparing for our trip that I wasn't able to do so. Making this layout was a little sad for me. I thoroughly enjoyed my stint as DT for Creative Scrappers and loved all the layouts I've created for their fabulous sketches. But I guess it is time to move on.

This photo was taken during Raya's Mother and Daughter activity last September. :D Better late than never, here is my take on Sketch #75.

Title: BFF

Journaling: "Best Friends Forever" This was the theme of the Mother-Daughter event this year. I pray that you will always feel comfortable to open up to me. I love you very much Raya! 09.19.09

Do drop by the Creative Scrappers blog site and check out the new DT and their creations! :D
