Best of All!

My life has completely changed after giving birth to my wonderful daughter, Hannah Dominique, last April 19, 2008. I can never be more happier, more contented, more prouder. She is the best blessing that I will ever have. She's perfect the way she is and i love her so much.

Title: Best of All

Materials Used: My Scrapbook Nook September Kit, MM alpha and bling swirls

I also handcut the flowers from the pattern to add dimension to the page

Then since I have used all my Prima flowers from the kit, I made my own lollipop flower using scraps. Trace different sizes of circles then instead of cutting them using a scissor or a cutter, cut the circles by hand by tearing. Distressed the edges then overlap the circles from largest to smallest. Add a button or a brad.

Another Nook Layout & a Toot!

Happy Tuesday!!!!

I am so happy to see my 2 Nook layouts on TwoPeas Top 10 by votes, my "Being Indoors" and "Remember This" layout that I will share on this post. The Nook kit is really awesome that is why I am so privileged to be part of their team. I think I saw almost all the other layouts from the Nook DT team on TwoPeas Top 10 often. What a talented bunch.

On this layout I have used a photo of Hannah picking some flowers, ain't she cute? :) I edited the photo to make it more desaturated so that it will perfectly blend with the Amber Road pps.

A Special Day & A Layout!

Happy Grandparents Day to all grandparents out there!

Today we celebrate our dearest friend, protector, family, our grandparents. Even though both my grandparents are no longer with me, I always reminisce the times they were here with me. I am a lola's girl (grandmom's girl), I grew up with her supervision since both of my parents were working fulltime when I was younger. I miss her dearly. I can never forget all her stories, her advises, and the way she took care of me and my mom. I know wherever she is, she is still watching over me. I love you lola!

To celebrate today, we went to my parents house so that Hannah can spend time with her lola and lolo. We even bought a special statement shirt for this occasion. Will share photos soon.

After our visit, we went home and I immediately played with my Nook September Kit. I received this kit last Thursday after 9 days when it was sent. You heard me right, I got this month's kit faster through Johnny Air.

Here is my layout:

The September Kit features Pink Paislee's Amber Road Collection. I love all the pps, the embellishments and the add-ons Leah assembled for this month. Well done Leah!

BasicGrey Idea Gallery

Hello to everyone!

Just a quick post for today, need to run some errands in a few minutes. Anyway, it has been ages since I last submitted a layout at BasicGrey Idea Gallery even though I have finished several BG layouts for the past few months. You know how much I love my BGs right?

Anyway, I submitted 7 projects yesterday and guess what, all of them got accepted at their Idea Gallery. Thanks BG! The projects were made by Wisteria, Lime Rickey, Archaic and Ambrosia Collection.

I still have several projects to submit but I just don't want to flood the gallery :P Kidding! Thanks for looking!

My Scrapbook Nook August Kit Layouts!

Happy Monday!

Yes it's Monday once again but a non-working holiday. Yipeee! I usually don't like Mondays because it's a sign of a new work week but today is a little different, I will spend more time with DD and DH. We are planning to go to the mall again like yesterday.

We love going to malls not to shop but to just walk around, DD enjoys it so much. She practices her walking there and I am happy because she's getting the hang of it already :)

Anyway, I almost forgot to post some of my DT layouts for My Scrapbook Nook August HSC Kit. I know it's pretty late, blame it to our local post office. I received the kit August 31 and I tried my best to quickly finish my layouts. So here they are:

Title: Journey
Title: Lolo's Dayout
Title: Hand2Hand

I really enjoyed using everything from this kit. It is full of yummy goodies. The colors are amazing, the embellies are perfect and October Afternoon's Roadmaps pps are so lovely. Leah indeed did great with combining everything on this kit. So what are you waiting for? There are still a few of the August Kit available at MyScrapbook Nook's Online Store.

BasicGrey Wisteria LOs

Good day ladies!

Just a quick post for today. I have been very busy for the past week that I neglected my blog for quite a while, sorry about that. Even so, I was quite productive for the past few days and made several layouts.

Here are some layouts that I did using BG Wisteria Collection pack that I got from ScrapThat! for my GDT.

I have never tried doing 8.5 x 11 layouts so i gave it a go and enjoyed it. I am planning to make more of this. It was fun!

Thanks for looking. Look forward to seeing my name on your comments section this weekend. I love reading all your blogs so if you're not yet on my followers list, please follow my blog because I try my best to read all the blogs from there and leave some comments at least every two weeks.

Thank you for all your support and inspiration.
