February's Scrapathon

... at Cors and Deds' Mansion again! I was so excited and could not wait for February 25 to come, because it was the 2nd month of LBS' Scrapathon. Here I get to scrap my own pages, I'm running kinda late on my own pages hahaha! I decided to open Iris Uy's Websters Pages kit because it was getting enough dust on my shelf already. Just lifted her first page and the rest of what I did were my own versions...

You Make me Smile... its so seldom that I get to have good shots of Lorenzo these days, he's at the phase that he doesn't want to be photographed and I just hate it! I used here Websters Pages pps, cardstock, Prima flowers and Shabby Chic Treasure resin, Memory Mist spray, lace, Ranger distressed inks, Adirondack acrylic dabber paint, eyelets, Jillie Beans Soup Sprout and glittered glue.

My Juan and Only... Photo was taken last year during the Linggo ng Wika activity in school. Finally finished it after 2 attempts! I used here cardstock, Websters Pages pps, Prima flower, Memory Mist spray, glittered glue, buttons and DMC thread, Ranger distressed inks, AAC chipboard letters and Jillie Beans Soup Sprout.

Boys to Men... are the 3 loves of my life! I used here Websters Pages pps, Prima flowers and letter stickers, laces, bling, native twine, glittered glue, corrugated board, Ranger distressed ink, Adirondack acrylic dabber ink, Memory mist spray and Jillie Bean Soup Sprout.

Love... Got a good shot of Luigi during the Valentine celebration at Solenad, Sta. Rosa, there were 3 tarpaulins in a huge tent and this was only one free of people taking photos. I used here Dream Street and Pink Paisley pps, cardstocks, K and Company metal key, baker's twine, Prima flower and some silk leaves. Wish to thank Helga for my wishblade title!

Kuya and Pia... Luigi and Pia at Teriyaki Boy, Tagaytay City. I used here Dream Street, Websters Pages and Cosmo Crickett pps, buttons, baker's twine, cardstock and AAS wooden fence.

It was a productive weekend! I get to pack the 136 pages for service, cleared away empty pockets of flowers and embies, cleaned my working table, made my accounting tables for my student's lessons, spent time with hubby and scrap friends and finally, scrapped 5 layouts for my 2 boys! And for the last task, BLOGGED my weekend getaway hahaha!

Got to clear my week, its Lorenzo's 8th birthday and I still don't know what to do! I am just happy, I was able to buy him a nice pair of snickers which he actually choose. Have a great week ahead peeps, TFL!

Ready to Go!

I spent the whole week going back at my pages, doing the finishing touches and making the titles. Finally, I'm DONE with Project Katherine's 3rd Set of Scraps! Started working on these mid September of last year and now, finished 135 pages all in all.

Now my head is whirling with other things to do... and at the same time, Lorenzo will be celebrating his 8th Birthday this coming week. We can not leave because of Luigi's school commitments, so instead, we'll be partying here at home. I only got a week to plan and its making me CRAZY!

Now I'm OFF to some Girly time out! Going to scrap the rest of the day with my girlfriends and this time, will catch up with my boys pages. Thanks for looking and Happy Weekend!

Happy Hearts' Day!

It was a work day for me! But it was okay, at least I was out of the house, breathe a different kind of air and used the other side of me. It was okay, I didn't have a dinner date or flowers and chocolate gifts. But instead I treated myself for something I really LOVE... a pair of new shoes and some scrap stuff! Hubby was away from home and my boys doesn't care about the day, so in short it was just an ordinary day in my life. But with these goodies to lift up my spirits!

I broke my cutting pad last Saturday! I normally spend my mornings cutting my titles, good thing I can still use it slowly, but of course it needs replacement at once. I ordered at once and was delivered on Valentine's day.

I'm on my 108th page for my assignment update! It feels great to know that I only have 11 pockets or approximately 20 pages left to play with. Will take a little rest after this first assignment for the year. We are planning to celebrate little Chuy's birthday elsewhere. School is roughly 6 weeks to go, I don't know if I will be happy for that because I'm sure I'm gonna miss teaching for the whole summer. Just taking things easy for now...

Have to go, tomorrow is another race! Thanks for looking as always!

Nephews and Nieces...

Just finished a few more simple pages for my nephews and nieces in the States... just a little Thank You for the generosity of my family there. Here's what I came up to...

I used here DCWV, SEI and Websters Pages pps, Prima flowers, native twine, fabric covered brads, buttons, cardstock stickers, cardstocks, and All About Scrapbooking stash.

The year of the DRAGON continues to spare me with his POSITIVE VIBES! Chinese readings say its also my year now, GREAT! Although I'd been sick of palpitations mid of January, I feel a lot better now after an ER run last Friday. Still catching up with my scrapping assignments, I'm on my 57th page for this year and still a lot more lined up. I'm slowly coping up with the absence of my Hubby and just anticipating his once-a-week appearance at home. Oh well, still have 9 weeks in school and, me and my 2 boys are still facing the everyday life of it. Still loving LIFE, I believe!

And scrapping just completes it all... Thanks for looking as always!
