I was UNDER pressure for the last 2 years of SCRAPFEST, but this year was a different one! Napa-upo ako sa sobrang happiness digging on papers, PAPERS at papers pa rin! Thanks Scrappin' Moms for another successful SCRAPFEST... more to come! Take note ha, WALA PA KONG ABSENT NA SCRAPFEST!


Made 2 cards yesterday for donation thru Ems Foronda. I'm not really a card person, but because its for a good cause I really tried to make some. Had fun making them with my seatmate Ytet Solivet.

My First ATC...

I really don't know how to make an Artist Trading Card... I'm forced to do one for a very special person! It's some sort of a greeting for her birthday yesterday. Happy Birthday Ate Liezl! Hope you like my first ATC ever... TFL!

I'm @ PRIMA Blog!

It's Monday today but my spirit is quite low and I spent the whole afternoon wondering and hiding myself. Its just about time when Cookie buzzed me with some nice news! She saw my July Prima BAP "SOLITUDE" layout at the Prima blog being featured... I thought Prima didn't get my layout because one time Ytet buzzed me too and told me that my page didn't appear in the gallery. It was my first time to join their BAP Challenge, although I didn't actually win, but just to be featured on this flower site makes me feel cloud nine!

Thanks Prima! TFL!

Kaya 28!

I have a 4-day vacation after my exams and I anticipated it with a lot of SCRAPPING and BLOGGING! I spend the whole day finishing, taking pictures, editting and blogging all these 4 new layouts... whew! And so I'm finally done with my Kaya 28 layout...

Beginning Today... I cannot resist to scrap my FB profile photo, thanks to my cousin Ronald for this hocus-focus shot last month. I have a design layout in mind but I just don't have a title for this one. So, Timi and Yvette thought about the title "Beginning Today" because of my new shift in life and career (kuno!) and that I must continue to grow and find peace in whatever I want to do. Pwede?! I used here Spanish Soccer pps, Prima Urban Cosmo pps, cardstocks, Prima artistry flowers, foam flowers, silk leaves, Hambly transparency, glittered glue, corrugated board, Basic Grey Wilma chipboard letters, AC Thickers foam letters, Ranger glossy accents and distressed ink-antique linen, MM acrylic paint-evergreen.

Kaya ba? Kayang kaya!

...Went Shopping!

...YUP! I went shopping kanina with Ate Marisa, my bosing at Scrapbooks Hawaii. I was sooo overwhelmed with the new products of PRIMA. Here's the good news!.. Scrapbooks Hawaii is offering Pre-Orders on Indeed, Tropics, Animal Bash and Paradise City patterned papers, beautiful flowers, vines, leaves, centers and crystals and pearls. Please visit our site here and email at for inquiries and your orders.

Hmmm... TFL peeps!


After my Prelims exams I had a little time to unwind and scrap... and I ended up hitting the Prima site! I was so inspired with July's Build-a-Page. I was able to submit on time but unfortunately, I don't know why the image didn't appear on their gallery. Here's my page anyway...

Solitude... I turned the sketch upside down and ended up with this. Its a layout out about myself having peace in my Solitude. I used here Prima Urban Cosmo patterned papers and flowers, Prima whispered words red flock alphabets, gold brads, glittered glue, cardstocks, and Colorbox fluid chalk ink.

Thanks for looking!
