It's the start of another week and here's a new ad again! I'm getting excited waking up each Tuesday morning (its already Tuesday here in the Philippines, when its only Monday in America) and finding my layout at Ad This blog! This week's twist is sewing, here's the ad and there should be handstitching, machine sewing, a stamp or rubon stitches somewhere in your layout.
You are my Pretty Lady Bug... This little girl is Ate Liezl's youngest child, have this photo for months already. Pia is a quick dresser, she can invent an instant outfit and would simply strike a pose anywhere and anytime! Here, she was wearing an apron on her back and pretending that she was a lady bug... lol! She's a little darling on this photos. I used here DCWV cardstocks, MME pps, K & Co. letters to go, flowers, Provocraft brads, DMC thread, lady bug buttons, antique metal flowers, ribbons and WRMK metal hardware.
Hope you can try using an ad for inspiration... Thanks for looking!
In Your Eyes... Here's another page for my cutie niece Gracie! I love this shot so much, that's why in my cousin Donna's new batch of photos, I have this printed at once. If you will notice, I made 4 different kinds of handmade flowers. I thought of making my own flowers since Prima flowers are not so much available here in the Philippines and they are a bit expensive... so here's my version of handmade paper flowers. I used here DCWV Cardstocks, kraft paper, Provocraft pps, WRMK Whiteout Nonsense pps, buttons, DMC thread, ribbons, glittered glue, MM heart brads and Ranger glossy accents.
Kaya mo rin ba? Thanks for looking!

Here's a sample for my challenge... lots of bright, cheerful and lively colors and use of those unmatched letters... scrap it away!
Chuy turns 5...Here's another birthday page for Chuy. I cut his party favors in circles to highlight this year's preparations. I used here Scenic Route Celebrate papers, cardstocks, button, DMC thread, Colorbox fluid chalk ink, AC Thickers glittered, vinyl and foam letters stickers, paper clip from Timi, Brillance black ink and glittered blue.
School is FUN! Here's my take for Yvette's rainbow colors challenge... its my first time to actually play with the ROYGVB colors. Bright and fun! I used here assorted scraps of papers (don't ask me the brands!), cardstocks, Sassfras pps, ribbons and ric racs, Scenic Route chipboard letters, K & Co. letters to go, MM paint, brads, WRMK precious metal hardware, glittered glue, Colorbox fluid chalk ink and glittered glue.

I'm glad that life is going back to normal for me! School is finally over, summer vacation is about to begin, and my mojo is almost here! Before I go for now, let me share a little happening at the school yesterday. It was the Star Kid Awards for Preschoolers and Chuy got the Friendship Award...

I always admire this little girl! She's so beautiful and witty! She's Dra. Chiqui's little girl... I always envy her for having such a pretty daughter, a daughter that I cannot have anymore. I am just so happy to make this page for her... I used here Fancy pants pps, corrugated board for my frame, Prima flowers, gromets and brads, Colorbox fluid chalk ink, AC thickers chipboard letters, MM felt letters, Bazzill edges, letter rubons and watercolor pencils. I used watercolor pencils on the designed flowers of the patterned paper, I love the effect on it.
Before I go, I want to greet my hubby because it's his special day today! We don't really celebrate but I cooked dinner for him, heheheh! Wish him more happy years to come and many many years with me. Thanks for looking!

Love you Lots...
I love this page! I thought of doing something new which was not really my style and this was my first attempt. I wanted to do a boy page with a touch of pinks and hearts. I used here Coredinates cardstock, BG Bittersweet pps and rubons, MM LOVE chipboard shape, paint and heart brad, AC slick black pen, a flower, AAS glittered heart stickers, ribbons, Terri Martin letter stickers and glittered glue.
I've been waiting to scrap this photo since last year, this photo was taken October of last year I think. I always treasure moments like this, just me and my kids playing and fooling around! I always love playing with corrugated boards but again, this page was a "not-so-me" style, hehehe!? I went out of my comfort zone and play with the pinks, paints and flourishes. I hope I did justice to this BG page. I used here BG Bittersweet pps, corrugated board, coredinates cardstock, Kaisercraft pearls, AAS fabric covered brads and glittered hearts, flowers, MM paint and Colorbox fluid chalk ink.
I've been making this calendar for christmas presents last year, so thought of sharing it to others. You will be needing a picture frame, some scrap cardstocks and patterned papers, ribbons, monthly calendar print outs and embellishments to decorate it with. I fell in love with the BG Bittersweet color motiff of pink and brown!
Again, I would like to thank Donna and the Mystical Scrapbooks Team for this honor and chance to be featured in their site. You can visit their forum for the step by step directions of the perpetual calendar.
Thanks for looking!

We'll be having another weekend of challenges by the last weekend of March... see you then!
... Life must go on! And so this ad is up at At This blog. Visit us and see the different interpretations of the Fab 6 Design Team Members. This week's twist is fonts, you have to make a list somewhere in your layout using different kinds of fonts. Here's my take...
It's an igorot dance performed by Luigi's class last February 27 during the school's foundation day celebration. It was so hard to convince this boy to finally wear his bahag and dance in the stage. I used here BG Urban Prairie Harvest pps, Provocraft pps, ribbons, DMC thread, buttons, WRMK metals, Craft Express foam letters, MM tiny stickers and cs stickers, rubons, K & Co letters to go, cardstocks, Brillance black ink, Colorbox fluid chalk ink, MM acrylic paint, staple wires, and AAS mesh.
And here's a bonus ad for a card inspiration. Isn't it nice? and here is my take...
I hope the rest of the week will be okay for me. Thanks for looking!

I've been longing to scrap this for Luigi. I'm done with Chuy's and finally, I can post this one now. An ad gives you all the chances to interpret your ideas into a page. With this I used my imaginary sketch to create what I really want, but I didn't make a slant as shown in the ad. I can say that my kids are the adventurous type, I haven't seen Luigi backed out and be scared of anything. Just like Chuy, he was brave enough to snorkle in the 10 feet waters of Laiya, Batangas. I used here cardstocks, Doodlebug letter stickers, MM paints, Brillance ink, buttons, DMC threads and Colorbox fluid chalk ink.
Some photos of Chuy just before he turned 5. I used here Cherry Arte pps, cardstocks, buttons, DMC thread, Ranger glossy accents, Keren Foster letter stickers, and K & Co. sticker. I just want to share this layout inspired again by an ad.
Thanks a lot for looking!
