A Christmas Layout

Happy Thursday!!!

I know Christmas is over but Im sure all of us has tons of photos from last Holiday that we are longing to scrap. And when is the best time to do this next Christmas? Of course not. The best time is NOW since we still have our updated Christmas paper lines from last years CHA.

I have a lot of this Holiday line. I have not used my Pink Paislee's Mistletoe line, Collage Press Joyride, I still have some Making Memories Mistletoe line and some October Afternoon Very Merry. So I definitely need to use them right now before the new Christmas lines comes up.

I got my October Afternoon's Very Merry from YourScrapbookStash. I just love, love the papers and the patterns. And of course the big discount from the store plus super cheap shipping. Can you imagine $8.50 minimum to ship to Manila??? Great deal right! And the most amazing thing is new supplies from Winter CHA 2010 will start arriving at the store. YAY! Cant wait to go crazy shopping.

So here is a layout that I did using items from YSS store and inspired by the Friday Sketch from YourScrapbookStash Blog:

Happy Monday!

I know many of us dislikes Monday because it means another new week of work, work and more work. As for me, I dislike Monday too but I also look forward to it because it means another chance of making greater things and more opportunities. I also think of Monday as a time for life planning. I schedule our meals, agendas, groceries, bills, and a lot more.

This Monday is not so different. Aside from the usual stuff, I plan to spend more time with my DD. She is growing up so fast, before I know it she'll be old enough to disobey me, something that all mothers should expect one of this days. That is really normal since we are 2 different individuals with different personalities, likes and dislikes.

Hannah is only 1yr and 9mons old but I can definitely see some independence already. She knows how to say NO if she doesn't want something, she knows how to say PLEASE if she needs anything and to say THANK YOU in appreciation of what I do for her. Time flies so fast so I see to it that we enjoy every day that we have.

The layout that I will share to you today has a photo of Hannah at our roofdeck where most of our plants are. She loves nature so much. She loves watching the birds fly, the smell of flowers, the flying colorful butterflies but with her enthusiasm with all of this she tends to have a hard time controling herself because of its cuteness and tends todestroy stuff like plants and flowers. GIGIL is the right tagalog word for it.

Photobucket

Cardstock: Cardinal Colours
Patterned Papers: Basic Grey Indial Collection - Woodrose, Autum Glaze, Dogwood, Aspen and Mapple Sugar
Chipboard: Basic Grey Indian Summer Chipboard Elements
Stickers: Basic Grey Indian Summer - Elements Stickers
Flowers: Petaloo
Felt: Prima Felt Stems - Brown
Others: Corrugated board, swirl chipboard, distress inks, word stamp

This is a technique that you must watch because it is so innovative, so unique and verypersonalized. I cant wait to try it myself.

2009 YEAR-END Review

It has been a fruitful year last year. Despite all the problems, the trials and the hardship, me and my family stayed strong together. We have so much to celebrate about, being blessed with a healthy daughter and a strong relationship between me and my husband. I thank God for everything.

I remember when we celebrated Hannah's 1st birthday, we went to Caliraya lake with my parents and spent the night there. That was Hannah's first swimming experience now, she can't get enough of it. I remember that last year we scouted for a new house, how I was so tired but had fun looking around. I remember Hannah's first meeting with Santa Claus, her first step, her first word. How my parents got a new car and renovated our old house. My cousin's visit from Australia, how I lost 40lbs, a lot of good memories.

I just wish I can include them all on this layout but I know for sure that it will surely be on my memory.

This layout was made using My Scrapbook Nook's January kit featuring Pink Paislee's Cupid Collection. I have used the remaining scraps from my DT kit.

Scraplift Challenge!

rica from YourScrapbookStash challenged all the new DTs to lift one another. I was assigned to lift the gorgeous and talented Alyssa McGrew. There are a lot of beautiful and inspiring works she has on the gallery, you can check it out here, and it took me some time to finally choose which one to lift.

I decided to scraplift her "Already 4?" layout. I love all the scallop she used and the patching work. This is something I rarely do and was challenged to try it out. Here is the layout that I came up with:


Materials: Prima TROPICS pps, AC Thickers Lullaby (available at YSS store); charms (My2Angels), buttons & flowers are from my stash

New Year! New Opportunities!

It is definitely a great new year so far. I am blessed to have a very supportive DH, a healthy baby and a loving family. Aside from that, we will be moving to our new house this year to a very quiet place near the mountains. This has always been my dream, to live away from the noise, the pollution and the stress the metro offers. It will be peaceful, healthy and most important of all, stress-free.

Aside from what I have mentioned, I am also blessed to be part of 4 Design Teams (My Scrapbook Nook, Shimmerz, YSS and CropAddict). It has only been a year since I started scrapbooking and yet I have grown and developed my skills. I have never thought that this accomplishments will be achieved this early. I have everyone of you to thank for. You have been great supporters, great friends and very inspirational scrapbookers. Thank you ladies!!!

As the new year starts, new opportunities will rise, obstacles to endure and problems to face but I will remain humble, grateful and trustworthy. That is my resolution for this year.

So before I end this post, I would like to share with you a layout that I did using My Scrapbook Nook's January Kit featuring Pink Paislee's Cupid Collection

Daily Exercise

is what I currently need to get my old self back. It is hard to admit but I think I gained around 10lbs this past holiday. Bummer! Oh well at least that was the best time to make some excuses why I gained that much LOL

With the new year starting, I need to get back to shape. I would love to do Pilates once again, or jog, or do some exercises. I miss the days when I do this stuff daily. Now that I have Hannah with me, I think it will be more fun to do it together with her. It will be like having fun and playing.

Here is a layout that I did yesterday using some photographs of Hannah exercising. When i start counting 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 she knows what to do. She looks so cute

Gifts

The past few weeks has been really busy. Shopping, reunions, parties, parks, church and malls. I barely sleep even during my vacation. I think my average sleep was 3-5hrs a day. I even miss scrapbooking since I have not touched my scrap stuff for the longest time this last year.

Good thing I still have something to share and to fill up my today's post. This layouts were made early December as gifts for my friends. It is pretty simple but just right.

What a great way to used up my stash. I think I have used Sassafras Sunshine Lollipop and October Afternoon's pps for both of this layouts.

Thanks for dropping by. I'll catch up with everyone later because I need to work on my Nook January kit.

I am a DT Member of...

Yup! Yup! Yup! What a great news to start the year right? I am so thrilled and honored to be part of their very talented group of DTs for 2010. And of course, I can't barely imagine that I am now a Manufacturer DT! Somebody please pinch me.

I remembered that being part of a Manufacturer DT has never been my goal this early because I just started scrapbooking last year and my only dream was to win some challenges and be part of a blog DT or a kit club DT. I never have imagined that I can achieve all of this only after a year of scrapbooking. This is such a blessing for me. Not only do I create pages using papers and some embellishments, this time, I will be working on such great products like their Shimmerz, Blingz, and Sprintz. I really look forward on using their products because I miss using other art media. it has been a while since I've used what I have studied back in college (Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts).

So watch out for 2010 because I know this year will be a blast!
