You Make Me Smile!

Diane tagged me! Well, it's my first time to be tagged and I don't know what to do! Sorry Diane I have to text you, but now I know what to do... and you made me smile and later laughed! Hahaha! Thanks for tagging me and making me smile. I feel we are so close not just because of the Idol but because we became friends in the web. You always have a helping hand which unselfishly gives.

Timi, my partner and seatmate at the LB Scrapaholics, thank you so much for all the lessons you taught me and in the end, for putting a smile on my face, alam mo na yon!

Ate Liezl, for being a big sister I never had. You made me smile in the panic world of kids!

Dra. Rita, for making me feel the real meaning of "friendship"... and the free consultation fees of my kid's check up! Hahaha, O hindi lang smile yan ha, laugh pa!

Helga, a super mommy to baby Ike. You make me smile because I remember the days when I had Chuy. The long time that we were trying to have another baby, makes me recall those moments when I see you with Ike.

Ella Go, for the cups of coffee and chat every morning, thanks for the smile!

Joanne, you make me smile! Thank you so much for your encouragement and constructive criticisms.

Busy Time!

It's Monday morning again and it's my Daddy's 70th birthday today... if he's still alive! You can see how busy I am lately, my scrap-table shows it all. I have a deadline to meet for the Scrappin' Moms Idol, we are on the last round before the finals on October 6. And still have to do the finishing touches of Joanne's client's scrapbook album. I'm a little paranoid too because Enzo had cat scratches on his right foot and he had his first anti-rabbies shot yesterday. Means there are still 4 shots lined up within a month time... kainis, gastos na naman! Unexpected expenses which can be avoid sana if his yaya was closely guarding him. Yes, I have a yaya finally... but i'm really thinking if she will stay after this incident. Grrr...

I don't want to spoil my week, I have lots of things to do and a lot of deadlines to meet. I have to put myself in a good mood, so I have to think of happy thoughts... scrapping! scrapping! and my kids!

Meet my Third Baby!

Luigi is my first, Lorenzo is my second and EOS is my third baby! I finally got my first digital slr just this morning. It's just a hand-me-down from my cousin Ronald, but I don't mind because I believe he also took care of this baby so much. Plus, I'm a little short of budget too, he offered me a pay-when-able deal, kaya who can still resist this baby!

I realized, I have to get a good camera. When you are into scrapbooking you have to have good quality pictures. It's not just focused on your style and stash. I have a lot of things to learn now... I have to read the book Ronald lend me... wish me luck on my new baby! I hope to make more good layouts from now on, with the help of my Canon EOS 350D.

Scrapped Gifts...

My Mommy is leaving for the States this Friday... she'll be visiting her sister Auntie Linda and her family in the East Coast and my cousins Jigs, Reggie and Marilyn in LA, California. Just thinking of what presents to bring them really gives me a headache. Hmmm! I think altered clocks are nice presents for the whole family. I scrapped the whole day yesterday and finished some more layouts for my new pamangkin Graciana Sybil. I had a great time making layouts for Gracie, trying my hands on girly layouts... something new for me! So mga PINSAN, hope you guys like my little something for you, just returning all the favors for sending me lots of scrapping things.

Good Monday Morning!

There's a lot of reasons to have a great Monday morning!!!

I was in a super bad mood during the weekend because my internet was down, I couldn't check my mails, YM my cousins and check the Scrappin' Moms' forum. But at last, I have a picture already for the round 4. My next problem is the 2 fabrics to be used. Then, we have to go out again to pick up some more things for Mommy's trip this coming Friday. We attended the Sunday Mass at Padre Pio's Church in Sto. Tomas, Batangas. I couldn't sleep because of a heartburn, so instead I watched HBO until 1 in the morning. I just love Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry's "Fool's Rush In". When I was about to sleep, Chuy woke up complaining of a tummy ache. I only have 2 hours of sleep because Dodo left at 4:30 in the morning, which means I have to prepare breakfast for Kuya Luigi. Hhuummm...

Hey it's Monday morning and I have to start the week right! Ate Liezl is my first caller... she told me to go to! first part of Lala Evangelista's article is up and Cors, Ate Liezl and me are in this issue. A service man from Kwiknet came to check my connections and I'm finally ONLINE! Then Joanne of Scrappin' Moms YMed me. Last reason to be happy is that my online orders are coming this week, thanks to Scrapbukan, Lasting Impressions and My Little Attic's super discounts, and Yellow Violet House's opening. Dodo is home early, that means Chuy can take a nap with him, oh and me too.
