I just got home from the beach! As usual, Laiya Batangas is the nearest water fun for me and my family. It has been our 3rd time to go to the beach in 6 months time, grabe addict na talaga mga kids for beach fun. It was a 4-hour drive from Los Banos, that included the detour in the main road of San Juan, Batangas.

I brought a book and a magazine, wanted to catch up with a little reading... away from scrapbooking muna!

There was a tattoo station in front of the beach, Luigi and I decided to indulge for the first time!

Luigi had an arm-tattoo... aliw ako!

Here's mine! I love my tattoo... pagnatuwa ako dito, I'm planning to make it permanent.

The beach was not so appealing because of the rain, but we found a nice spot away from our rented place. It was quite a long walk, but the kids somehow enjoyed na rin. Chuy doesnt want to play with dirty sand, but later on he doesnt want to go home na! I'm sure this two buddies had FUN too!

I'm happy because I'm still connected kahit nasa liblib akong beach. There is wifi but didnt bring a lappy. Signal is in full scale so I cannot see why I cannot get phonecalls!

After the beach, we stopped by at SM Lipa and had my fave Charlie Chan Pasta at Yellow Cab.

I was so tired but I'm just happy to be back... renewed! Thanks for looking!

April 20 Ad...

I'm so excited to be back from a 3-day off! But its time for a new ad, so check this out here! This week's twist is to use different pens and different colors of fonts on your journaling... here's my take!

Chat... I'm getting to be an addict nowadays! Hahahaha! I used here BG Granola-Wholesome pps, cardstocks, Tim Holtz grundgeboard letters, MM well-worn tag, MME cardstock tag, Prima flowers, 7 Gypsies happines card, Provocraft brads, Brillance inks, Vellum writer pens, AC slick writer pen, Sakura aqualip pen AAS gromets and a red brad from Yvette.

Hope you guys can join this week's challenge and win some exciting stash from Elisa, owner of Ad This blog. Thanks for looking!

I am sooo happy today! Hehehehe.... Hallelujah! The LB Scrapaholics family celebrated the 3rd annual Easter Egg Hunt this afternoon infront of the Humanities building where you can find the Oblation statue.

NO Sleep...

Yup! Still got no sound sleep since Monday night... oh maybe I've been thinking so much about soooo many things! and my deadlines! I have this black thing around my eyes and big bags under it. Buuuuuuutttttt, I know I will be okay!

Our annual PABASA is now ongoing. They started the Passion of Christ around 2 this morning and expected to end by 2 this afternoon. Habang andito ako nagboblog lang at hindi nakikikanta. My cousins are all here since last night, had a little bonding time with the kids Chuy and DK.

Anyway, I want to think that I am still blessed! I got this pink bag this morning! I want to thank Marisa K. and Yoyin for this one.

Tomorrow will be Maundy Thursday... I'm off to the 3rd and 4th districts of Laguna Province. Visita Iglesia naman ang trip ng pamilya. Here's the chance to look at life and your faith in Him. Marami akong ikukuwento kay Bro (Santino's friend in white)... a lot of things to be thankful for, ask for a safe gallbladder operation and everybeody's wish, peace of mind. My chance to take some new shots too... been dying to play with my camera again. I just want to click and click...

I hope I can sleep after this... thanks for looking!

Hope you can join us for another week of challenge!

My Matchbox Mini Album...

It's Scrappin' Kid's 1st Altered Project Challenge!
This month's challenge is to make a mini album,
yup! any kind of minis but there's a twist...
find out here and join the fun!

My Matchbox Mini Album about the 10 Things we Love doing Together... first of all, I love making minis but embellishing it is the hardest part of the game! Maybe because the page is smaller to move around, but really that's the hardest part for me. This is the first matchbox mini album that I made, no pattern or anything to copy, this is so simple to make actually. I used here BG 6x6 pps, BG pps, playing cards, cardstock, K & Co. letters to go for my titles, MM paint and a ribbon to hold my pages. Try making one too and join our challenge for this month over at Scrappin' Kids!
