Mini Album Mania

Hurray for me! I got Kyla's 7th birthday gift done! The party's scheduled this weekend and I asked her mom (Allie) to give me 6-10 photos since I was planning on giving a mini album as a gift. I really hope both of them will like it.

Scrapbook Challenges - Sketch 127


This afternoon, Jillian was woken up from her nap (30 min into it) by the dragon dance downstairs and I was pleasantly surprised to find that she didn't quite cry as hard as I expected. She was even a little curious to see what the ruckus was about (we couldn't see from the 4th floor).

Her daddy was sleeping on the couch after watching a DVD and played with her for a while. Afterwards, they went downstairs to take a dip in the pool. We'll probably go out to town tomorrow (we avoided the crowds today) and hope to take pics of her in her new cheongsam.

And for SC Sketch 127, I re-photographed my layout this morning (in direct sunlight). I just can't get enough of K&Co embellies (there goes my new year's resolution not to buy any scrap supplies in January).

Materials - Bazzil Basics light brown, white, light yellow, Grant cardstock - neon light green, Creative Imaginations "Narratives", Doodle Bug Limeade Serenade, Sei Chick-A-Dee, Chip Chatter Gellies, K&Co Berry Sweet grand adhesions, Me & My Big Ideas embellished chipboard, Heidi Swapp Bling frames, yellow and brown ribbon, Icicle stickles.


The Cardstock Challenge

Scrapbook Challenges

It's a nice Sunday night, the second day of the long weekend and I've already started on the mini book birthday gift for an office colleague's daughter (photos to follow, I've still got 5 pages to go on that one).

Here's my take on Sookie's challenge. I used more than 3 cardstocks on this one (I think 6 or more). A few mini brads, Luxe rub-ons and glitter chipboards to "finish" it off (yup, "finish" in quotes because I think it's too simple... kinda lacking in something - embellishments, journalling, etc).


Scrappalific Award!

Hoo-whee!!! Thank you Thank you Marix for these Addictive awards! =D

Mention 5 addictions and pass on the award to 5 other fab blogs!

1. Sudoku (I'll stop one day but if I start on another one of these puzzles it'll be weeks before I stop again)
2. Scrapbooking (I honestly get cranky when I don't get to scrap within a week)
3. Shopping (hee hee)
4. Gossip Girl (the T.V. series is a little different from the books)
5. Haagen-Dazs Coffee ice cream (sweet addiction indeed!)

And now, here are the terrific ladies I'd like to pass these awards to:


Happy scrapping!

Scrapbook Challenges - Sketch 126

I've been wanting to buy this premium stack for a while now but it was only during December's promo season that I decided to finally indulge. DCWV's Blossoms & Butterflies stack is so cute! I hope it'll last me for at least 5 more month.

Jerome actually smiled when he first saw this layout - clean lines, geometric shapes and no white space (nuff said).


Scrapbook Challenges - Sketch 125


Bo Bunny "Sweetie Pie" & "Sweetie Pie Swoon", KI Memories "Memories Spice", pink vellum, La-Di-Dah felt stickers, white cardstock, white Sakura gel pen

Happy Tuesday! I finished Pamela's Sketch 125 friday night (attended a wedding on Saturday and got side-tracked). Jerome photographed it on Sunday morning and then we had to go out that afternoon so I only got to upload it last night.

I'm getting addicted to these sketches! And I still plan on making Brynn and Marilyn's challenges. So I'm off to make more, wish me luck! (Somewhere in between I hope to make some more cards).


Scrapbook Challenges - Sketch 124

I finally managed to finish the layout of cute#1's photo. I've been stuck with it for a month now and without this sketch I think it would take another month for me to finish (thanks to Scrapbook Challenges!).

I really have to get the creative juices flowing because Sketch 125 is out! I resolve to make it by friday! That and my personal list of goals for January. Hope you're having a great week!

Star Celebrations

Having landed in Changi airport on Friday, I can say three things:

1. I miss my family and how everything seems to be happier in good ole Phil.
2. I miss the food (and the malls! Especially the great, new big sprawling ones)
3. I don't miss the traffic (and the crowds)

Going back to work after having spent Christmas, Jillian's birthday (in Tagaytay), Jillian's party (in Makati), New Year's, and my birthday is like being dropped into the ocean after having a short but enjoyable roller coaster ride.

In any case, here are some pics of the invites we sent:

Mom's trying to see if any of her friends are interested in having their children's invitations made by us. Hope it's the start of a business venture (keeping my fingers crossed!).

Happy New Year!

A little late but I still wanted to share the absolutely, positively GREAT news. Pamela has so graciously accepted me as one of the DTs of Scrapbook Challenges! I was really and truly bouncing up and down with joy! And very, very grateful for the opportunity (quite humbled by the works of the talented bunch).

At the same time, Jennifer from ScrapStreet.com has informed me that my work ("Apple of my eye") will be part of Chic Street (ecstatic = me).


What a great end to 2008 and a wonderful start to 2009!
