Happy Easter!

Hallelujah! May the spirit of Easter be with you all... And so its time for the 5th LB Scrapaholics Easter Egg Hunt! Its an annual affair for the Scrapaholics and our growing family. Here's what happened yesterday.

My two boys gathered 8 eggs all in all and they got toys, biscuits and chocolates. We had yummy sandwiches, barbeque and hotdogs, chips and dip and red juice. And to make it complete, bonding moments with good friends topped it all. It sure is really great to have good friends and families!

TFL! Happy egg hunting anyway...

It was a total career change for me... from being an Accounting Assistant in a government office, to a crafter-proprietor and now a Teacher! I found good friendship along the way...

Bliss... Cheers to a blissful friendship Mam Glendz! Thanks for making my first year of teaching really fruitful and meaningful. I used here DCWV pps, Provocraft pps, AC pps, cardstocks, Prima flowers, paper flowers from Bangkok, AAS pearl brad, silk flowers, glittered glue and Brillance ink. This page was inspired by a sketch.

Friends... Teacher Alleli is a great teacher, not just for Pre-schoolers but to me also, a pre-schooler by heart and mind, hahahah! I used here DCWV pps, cardstocks, button, native twine, Reeve's gold acrylic paint, ribbons, silk leaves and foamed flowers. This layout was inspired by one of my favorite sketches from my previous DTs.

My Baby Yo!... Shiela will always be a baby sister to me. The short time we've been together was like forever. I used here Dream Street pps, cardstocks, ribbons, foamed flowers, Brilliance ink and glittered glue.

Teacher Remy... She's like a big sister to me who always makes me happy and smile each day of my stay in the school. I used here Bohemian pps, Kaisercraft and MM acrylic paints, Jillibeans Soup pps, Dream Street pps, cardstocks, Prima flowers, fabric flowers, AAS brad, Maya Road and Tattered Angel glimmer mist and Brilliance ink. Just trying my hand on my old paints that's been sitting in my cabinet for years. I'm glad to play with them again!

Holy week is almost over and today is Easter Sunday! This year's Holy week celebration was a bit low, we stayed mostly at home and spent much time SCRAPPING! Well, I'm still the happiest in spite of all... made 10 pages and counting!

Have a blessed EASTER everyone, Jesus LOVES us all! Thanks for looking as always!

sketchabilities # 45!

Here's my first design team assignment for my second term for Sketchabilities! I am happy to be a returning designer for another 3 months. Do drop by our blog here and check out our NEW GALLERY!

My Girl... This is Mady! My brother's baby girl hahaha! I used here Crate Papers (thanks Cookie for sending me these!), cardstocks and foamed flowers.

Summer is officially here! I will be off from school for a month.. Wooohoo! For now, all my weekends are taken and week days will be on surprise gimmicks. Holy week starts today and family gatherings just started yesterday. My scrap table just started making mess again and it feels good to be playing and rambling with my old passion. Hope to have more time with my kids specially now that both of them are entering a new phase of schooling, Luigi will be in college and Lorenzo will be Grade 1 by June.

I'm so excited for the coming days... thanks for dropping by blog! TFL!

Sketchabilities #44!

This will be my last layout for Sketchabilities for my October 2010-March 20111 term. Its okay because I will be back for another 3 months! Can't wait to share my latest creation...

Turning 7... These photos were taken days before Lorenzo turned 7, had to schedule a photo op just for his upcoming birthday then. I used here Bazzill edges cardstock, MME pps, Ranger distressed ink, cardstock, AC Thickers chipboard letter stickers, AAS chipboard embellishment, Autumn Leaves clear buttons, baker's twine, MM clear word stickers, KI ribbons and Maya Road glimmer mist.

I am so excited because summer is almost here! I will be taking a few weeks off from teaching and probably then, I can have some time to SCRAP! I am anticipating scrapbooking classes too for beginners, I hope plans will push through by mid of this month. I am also excited to play with my co-scrapaholics this coming Holy week! So I am crossing my fingers for an exciting summertime...

Thanks for looking as always!
