Toddler Class

Time for another prompt challenge at Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge Blog. :-) This month's prompt is to Scrap your School days. I scrapped instead Alyssa's first class picture for her Toddler Class. I would have wanted to scrap something of me but I didn't have time to look for my school photos and scan them for this challenge. I wanted to have this layout done lest I miss the deadline again. (I missed the Sept 15 challenge. Boohoo!) Anyway, here's my layout:

Toddler Class

You have until the 14th of October at midnight to post your take on the challenge to be eligible for our prize this month. You will have a second chance to enter a layout for this prize on the 15th of October during our sketch challenge for October.

Head on to the site and check out what the rest of the DT's have made. Thanks for looking!

This layout was suppose to go up last Sept 11 for the Sketch 93 reveal of Little Shop of Sketches. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to scrap in time for the deadline. Nevertheless, I decided to still create the layout since I really liked this sketch created by Ashley. :-) The layout is of my DD2, Raya who won 1st place in the Poem Recitation Contest back when she was in preschool. Glad to have finally scrapped this one. :-)

I'm also submitting this layout to ScrapFIT blog's challenge to use BUTTONS! Isn't this perfect for it? I used regular buttons of different sizes and button stamps too. :-)

Title: Winner!

Journaling: Raya won 1st place in the Poem Recitation Contest for JK. It was her first time to win and the start of her elocution prowess. We are proud of her! Feb. 20, 2009

By the way, have you noticed that I've been using my stamps lately? I'm starting to enjoy stamping as a background of my layouts. I'm glad I'm able to make use of a lot of my stamps, finally! :-)

LSS: Family is an Amazing Blessing

It's time for another sketch at Little Shop of Sketches. I missed the last sketch because I was busy with the combined birthday party of my family members and my in laws were in town that time. I thought I would be able to squeeze scrapping in our busy schedule but wasn't able to. I guess I should have finished my layouts well ahead of time. Here's Sketch 94 created once again by Ashley Van Etten:

And here's my layout:

Family is an Amazing Blessing

Journaling: You may not know it now... but our Family is an amazing blessing. Not only do we share love and affection, we also celebrate traditions and remain united during good times and bad. No other person can fill your shoes because you share the unique bond that only another member of our family can comprehend. May 2011

Check out the site for the awesome layouts of the DT. Remember to play along you must upload it to the gallery of our ning site: See you there!

38 Weeks

Here's another layout I made just last night. Hmmm... I'm on a roll! Wish I could sustain this. :-) Used Sketchy Thursdays' 9.22 sketch and a challenge at Burlap & Buttercups to use rub-ons on a layout. I used Fancy Pants and Basic Grey rub-ons for this page. :-) Thanks for looking!

Clap Your Hands!

Yay! Have been scrapping productively the past 3 days and have finished all my DT requirements. Check out my blog every so often to see my layouts in the coming days. :-)

In the meantime, here's a layout I made for Cerise's album. I printed the multiple photos on an 8x10 paper as I wanted to stress on her achievement. Cerise has been delayed physically because of health problems brought about when she was born. But she has been attending physical therapy sessions twice a week for the past 3 months and I think she has improved quite well already. She can roll very well now and can balance while sitting very well too. She stands for a longer length also. The therapist says that cognitive-wise, she is well and good. She is only delayed physically which is good because she will definitely be able to catch up eventually. :-)

Clap Your Hands!

Journaling: When you're happy and you know it, Clap Your Hnads! Cerise learns to clap her hands at 10 months. :-)

Popsicle Blast

Finally found time to scrap yesterday after 2 or 3 weeks of non-scrapping! Hooray! Hope to start a habit of scrapping again so I can be churning more layouts. :D Here's a page using the Sketchy Thursdays 9.15 sketch and a challenge from ScrapFIT.

10 Things We Love About You at Ten

Here's a mini album I created to commemorate my daughter, Nadine's 10th birthday. It's just a simple album but definitely made with love. :-)

Grade 1

I was planning to schedule this post in time for the reveal last Saturday but busyness got in the way. I was preparing for our big Western party to celebrate the birthdays of 5 family members: DD1 Nadine, DH Mier, DD3 Alyssa, DD4 Cerise and Cousin Sabine. Took lots of great photos that I'm excited to scrap. :-)

So again, this is a late post. I apologize for the delay. Layouts for the Saturday Switch It Up! sketch is up at Sassy Lil' Sketches. Here is the sketch:

For my Switch it Up challenge, I changed the two photos to three re-sized photos allowing me more white space to play with.
