Happy Birthday Mom!

US... My Mom turned 72 last weekend and we celebrated it with dancing! I made this layout for her, to complete her album with her bonding and happy moments with the family. I used here Pink Paislee pps, DCWV cardstocks, Prima flowers, lace and Ranger distress inks.

My weekend was so exciting and enjoyable having another party for my Mom. So we are looking forward for another year of ballroom dancing and partying with her and her close friends. School is still FUN and I'm still enjoying each day of lectures and story telling. And my kids are moving on with 1st Quarter tests and monthly school activities. Nothing much new each day...

TFL as always!

My Handmade Flower...

I'm making handmade flowers this past few days. Actually they are for another purpose, but I thought of putting them as embies on my latest page... lookie!

I used here DCWV Nana Kids pps, corrugated board, cardstocks, Jillie Beans Sprouts, AAS Chipboard, Acrylic dabber, AC Thickers foam letters, fabric for my handmade flowers, buttons, baker's twine, brads, lace, K and Company die cut flowers, Maya Road mists and Ranger distress inks.

Wish to join Ria Mojica's flower challenge here. Thanks for looking as always peeps!

LB Scrapaholics' Version of a Scrap Buffet!

We'd been planning for quite a long time and FINALLY, it just happened last weekend! Our personal schedules won't just permit us to come together, last minute Timi got sick. The rest of the 7 ladies came and go, and just SCRAPPED! Here's what I was able to create during the 12 hours of playing...

Life's simple Pleasures... I love this photo of Chuy! I know I have to scrap this! I used here assorted pps and cardstocks, Basic Grey chipboards, AC Thickers foam letters, metal embies, blings, Ranger distress inks and Maya Road mists.

Travel... My boys doing window shopping in Baguio! Glad I was able to capture this happy moment. Misting did a great play on this page, thanks to Helga's clock mask. I used here assorted pps and cardstocks, corrugated board, buttons, native twine, chipboard gears from Lola Ytet, chipboard titles from Cors, Ranger distress inks, Maya Road mists and AAS gem brads. Love it!

Easter Egg Hunt 2011... Who says pastels colors are not good for boys? Actually, I was a bit in doubt and then, I placed flowers. I just thought of Easter colors and its done! I used here assorted pps and cardstocks, chipboard buttons from Doc Chiqui's yummy stash, Prima flowers, native twine, Ranger distress inks and Maya Road mists.

Perfect Together... They find bonding moments at least a month within one year, and they have to keep it up with one another! I used here October Afternoon and assorted pps, ribbon lace, buttons, native twine, brads, Fancy Pants pin, Ranger distress inks, Maya Road mists and chipboard title from Cors' chocolate box.

Mom and Me... I'm so happy with this page, misting did a lot of difference here. Another page of my first born Luigi. I used here October Afternoon pps, K and Company chipboards, native twine, buttons, Prima flowers, Ranger distress inks and Maya Road mists.

Remember When... Finding time to capture this young man's growing up years. I used here assorted papers and cardstocks (which I forgot the names?!), native twine, blings, corrugated board, K and Company chipboards, 7 Gypsies cardstock stickers, Love Elsie fabric stickers, Ranger distress inks and Maya Road mists.

Dreams... I'm glad to scrap this page for Lorenzo, I almost forgot it actually. This was during his Recognition Rites and he was awarded the Logical Math-Time Smart Kid. I used here Basic Grey pps, cardstocks, assorted blings, corrugated board, 7 Gypsies cardstock sticker and chipboard title from Nanay Cors' chocolate box.

Candles... I took this photo during my godchild Rhianelle's 1st birthday. I decided to scrapped it now to add up to her pages. I used here Teresa Collins pps and assorted scraps from Doc Ritz's stash, K and Company chipboard butterfly, Prima flowers and some organza mini flowers, Ranger distress inks, Maya Road mists, Fancy Pants pin and chipboard titles care of Nanay Cors.

I'm so THANKFUL to my scrappy friends Doc Ritz, Ate Liezl, Lola Ytet, Nanay Cors, Doc Chiqui and Helga... for generously sharing their toys and stash! Can't wait for the next sleep over.

Still lack sleep, but I got lots of smiles for what I had created. Happy Scrapping and thanks for always looking!

THANK YOU so much Mich Ku for this SCRAPPINESS! You can find this kit at Scrappin' Studio in Malaysia.

It's Prelim exams now, its time for the first major test in the college department probably in all schools around the country. I realized that teaching in the college is less stressful for me, hope to finish this semester with the same thinking. Virus is back at home, we are having aching throats and roaring coughs around the household this week. Hope it won't progress because this coming weekend is very special for me... I'm going on an overnight scrapping with the LB Scrapaholics!

Weekend is coming up so soon, hope you have a great getaway peeps and thanks for always dropping here. TFL!

It's Monday once again, time to MOVE it! Need to be positive in all the things that will be coming along the week. Lorenzo will be having his 1st Long Test in Grade One and I'm short of time for my Prelims too. Lorenzo is doing good in Math, but Teacher Helga called me up for some back up for his English subject. I wonder what is going on with Luigi? Everyday seemed to be moving fast but everything is under control, stress is far out! I just wish to find time to create and play, hahaha!

Happy Monday peeps and thanks for looking as always!
