My First Layout for the Year...

Finally got the chance to scrap after the long busy Holidays! But before that, I had so much FUN blog hopping and I got to drop by this interesting blog called True XoXo Girls. Their latest challenge is to scraplift one of the OG designers. I decided to lift July Gaceta's Rockstar layout, here goes mine...

Pasko 2009... Christmas in the Philippines is called Pasko and I see to it that we have a shot beside the tree each year we spend the holidays. Just to see how our little family grows specially my two kulit boys. It's pretty obvious that Lorenzo was in a bad mood that Christmas day, it was written all over his big face. While Luigi on the other hand was a genuine teener already with that slight mustache. Time really flies so fast, Dodo and I were starting to collect gray hairs already... hahaha! I used here Fancy Pants Truthful pps, Wedster Pages Xmas pps, Bazzill polkadot cardstock, MM Xmas pps, Ac Thickers vinyl letters, 7 Gypsies Xmas cardstock stickers, Creative Imagination tranparency stickers, Heidi Swapp transparency clock face, Petaloo Hydrangea burgundy flowers, polkadol ribbon and some gold brads.

So that's my first layout for 2010, hoping to CREATE more real soon!

Sketch #86!

Good Monday Morning Everyone! It's good to be back... scrapping and blogging at the same time. Sketch #86 is finally here, designed by the very talented July Gaceta, you can view the different versions of Team K and our Guest Designer April Lim here.

Love One Another... That's one of my wishes for both of my boys. Love one another specially when the time comes that you only have each other. I used here MM pps and diecut stamp pps, cardstock, Prima flowers, brads, ribbons, Fancy Pants' felt shapes, Tim Holtz ticket, glittered glue, Tattered Angel glimmer mist and Ranger glossy accents. By the way, got the flower idea from LG Belarmino and Calia's video tutorial.

TFL peeps!

2009 FB!

I am so THANKFUL I came across Facebook fever! I get to see a lot of my old friends like my elementary and highschool classmates and batchmates, my brods and sisters in APO, friends who live away from the Phils and just got to see each other after 21 years, share photos and latest news with my family in the States and in Mindanao, greet friends celebrating their birthdays and anniversaries, share scrapbook layouts and inspirations with my fellow scrappers... and, and a lot more.

Thank you Facebook for keeping the world connected! TFL!
