A Mini Album for Brendan

My sister-in-law and her 1-year old son, Brendan, will be leaving for Canada soon to join Brendan's dad there. We will surely miss them. I thought of creating this 6x6 mini album for Brendan so he'll remember all of us on our side of the family. :-)

Found this 6x6 album in our local department store
C is for Castrillo :-)

Cerise is Love Love Love

Here's my take on Pencil Lines Sketch 237. This is my youngest and fourth daughter, Cerise, in an outfit given by my sister-in-law. :-) She loves having her picture taken. LOL! Thanks for looking!

You make us Proud!

There's a DT Call up at Little Shop of Sketches and those who would like to apply should create a new layout based on Sketch 82.

Here's my take on the sketch:

Title: You Make Us Proud!

Hidden Journaling: I have to admit that I was worried that you will not make it to the honor roll. Your 4th and last quarter in school was also the 1st trimester of my pregnancy with Cerise. I was too sick to even get up from bed and I couldn't tutor you for lessons and exams. But you did it! You weren't only on the honor roll but you even made it to the First Honor list! We are so proud of you for bringing home that Gold medal. We love you, Raya!

I love sketches and hopefully a DT stint in a sketch blog would help boost my layout numbers. :-)

Last January 2010, we had a family (my side) picture with only four (4) grandchildren. On that same month, we found out that we, three sisters, were pregnant! (I made layouts for these that are found here.) So in a years time, my parents suddenly had a a baby boom of grandchildren. What fun! This picture was taken right before we went off for New Year's Eve Mass.

I had fun doing this scrap page. I used the April Challenge of Butterfly Crafts, which is a color challenge, as a guide for this layout. I used all three colors --- yellow, pink and blue. I also used Sketch 4.28 of Sketchy Thursdays.

Hope to have more scrappy time soon! :-)

Title: 4+3=7

Journaling: Who would have thought that in a years time they would have, from 4 to 7 grandchildren? Not Abu and Mama Flory! They are thrilled to have 3 more babies to add to the clan. We are all excited to watch Marko, Maggie and Cerise grow in the family. 12.31.10
