Crate Paper Class

I had another wonderful time yesterday with my Scrappy friends Ate Liezl, Doc Ritz and Doc Chiqui, and of course, teaching us for the 3rd time is Master Iris Uy! It was almost 6 hours of non-stop scrapping with the new Crate Paper class of the Master. Here's what I made...

Unwind a Bit! Caught Luigi playing with the swing during our fishing last month. He was taking time out of school and texting I guess, hahah! Thought of using a nature pic to somehow compliment this floral page. Love the ruler used here, the layering of embies and flowers, and of course the misting!

Sisters... They are my sister-in-laws, since I don't have a sister, I'm glad I have them both. I love the clock pattern for misting here and the resist papers used for tags were really nice.

Celebration... It's my Mom's 72nd birthday. Captured her moment of blowing her candles and wished her lots more to come! The round chipboard frame was so nice, highlighted by butterfly and flowers all around.

My Cowboy... This was Lorenzo's costume during the recent United Nation's Day in School. Needed to bribe him for just one shot! I know there are lots of flowers for this boy page, who cares! I still love it!

@ 18! Another page to celebrate my first born's 18 birthday. I had to limit my embies here because again its a boy page, but just then, I love the brights that conplimented the birthday feel on this page.

Happy Times... This was taken early this year, I guess during my wedding anniversary in January. We had lunch at Terriyaki Boy, Tagaytay City and took a little pictorial around the area. I had to change a bit of the orientation of my elements because I used a horizontal pic here. Just then, I love this page!

The past week was a bit hectic both at home and at work. Hubby was away for a week now for a 10-day training, that's fine! I got to start making a new set of Christmas presents, put up my tree and wrapped the first batch of gifts, went shopping with the Scrapaholics, had some school activities for my NSTP class and now, still with ITCHY hands I still wanted to scrap! My 2 boys are enjoying some quiet time while their Dad is away, probably more time to play plants and zombies, angry birds and dota on their computer.

This is my birthday week... I wonder what will happen on Thursday! Have a great week ahead peeps and thanks for looking as always!

A box came in this morning! Came from a very generous client from USA who send a lot flowers, embellishments and journaling tags. Now I can't wait to scrap again!

And here is my work part, I need to create an estimated 148 pages for this set of scrap service. Wow, that's a lot of happy scrapping! Hahaha!

I got an early birthday celebration with my wonderful Scrapaholic family! Along with another celebrant, Nanay Cors and I decided to do a Chinese-Field Trip birthday celebration last Wednesday. The first stop was at the Dapitan Arcade in Manila, we went shopping for ceramics, leather organizers, baskets and Christmas decors. Then the next stop was at Lasting Impression, a one-stop scrapbook store in San Juan. Lunch was at North Park followed by Mobler Store where they got me this great floor lamp which is intended for my scrap area. I love it, thanks mga Lola! And the last and longest stop was at the Noel Bazaar at the World Trade Center. We were out for about 15 hours loaded with shopping, laughing, chatting and girl bonding. We just missed Ytet and Helga!

I'm still working on my handmade Christmas presents, still a lot of boxes to wrap. I'm planning to put up my tree tonight, so wish me luck! School is just doing great and so are my 2 boys. Life is so good today!

Thanks for looking peeps!

Altered Pot Holders

This is what's keeping me on the move this past few days... now I'm running out of the wooden pot holders in the supermarkets. It's just so fun to make and give to friends. Try altering!

Thanks for looking as always!

My Christmas Project

Every Christmas season, I try to make handmade gifts to my family and close friends. I made altered wall clocks, picture frames and calendars, this year I am altering hot pot holders... Its made of light wood, patterned papers, native twine, metal hooks and scrapbook embellishments.

Its Monday again and its our first day in school for the second semester! I can't wait to go back to teaching and exams once again. I had a fruitful sembreak, I was able to clean the entire house, bond with my kids, had a couple of doctor's check ups and therapy for my right arm, finished a scrapbook assignment, eventually working on some more Christmas projects and the most important part was, I was able to REST for almost a month. As I woke up today, I feel I'm ready to go back to work again.

I hope to drop by the mall today... find a good top for a wedding party, find some more pot holders, and do a little grocery for my boys. Starting the week right, so bless me Lord! God bless us all! Thanks for always looking!

Disney Pages!

I am so excited to share these Disneyland pages which I did for service. I wanted to use bright and happy colors here which I don't normally do, hehehe! I wanted to create a cheerful mood to match my clients' cruising experience. I just hope I did justice to these set of photos, here it goes...

I can say that my sembreak from teaching was spent well and I'm so glad to have accomplished a lot of tasks in three weeks. I was able to finish Katherine's 2nd batch of photos, organized my scrap space again and finally found a good storage for my papers, cleaned and sorted Lorenzo's little play area and Luigi's room upstairs. Now my house is ready for the Christmas season, this is my last assignment before 2nd semester starts in a week. Crossing my fingers to accomplish them all!

We had another family bonding since Friday, my sister-in-law's family were here in Laguna! And so was Hayk, she came home from Dubai and stayed with us for a couple of days...
