It's Lorenzo's Turn...

Last Friday, the Scrapaholics had another overnight crop! The last get together was in January and now we just wanted to celebrate summer with another playtime. I came with 2 double pages layouts and embellished it during the crop, then I created the rest until the following morning. Here's sharing Lorenzo's pages...

Disneyland Hong Kong... Finally, my kids got to experience the happiest place on earth! It will be a treasured memory with my family too. I used here Scenic Route pps, Sandylion pps, cardstocks, buttons, baker's twine, cork stickers, ribbons and Echo Park cardstock stickers.

This is my Happy Place... actually, it was Lorenzo's scary place, he was afraid of the crocodiles and spiders at the Jungle Cruise ride. While on the other page, the Toy Story Land was NEW at HK Disneyland and was one of Lorenzo's fave too. I used here DCWV pps, Scenic Route pps, Simpel Stories pps, Echo Park pps, My Little Shoebox pps, buttons, DMC thread, baker's twine, cork stickers and cardstocks.

Tomorrow Land... One of Lorenzo's favorite spot where he met Buzz Lightyear and got to ride the Astro Blasters twice. I used here Scenic Route pps, October Afternoon pps, letter stickers and tag embies, Simple Stories pps, cardstocks, buttons, cork stickers, EK Success embies. 

Good Eats... A huge hamburger meal for the little man, and he finished it all. I used here Echo Park pps, Simple Stories pps and letter stickers, cardstocks, baker's twine, EK Success embies, buttons and Maya Road glimme mist. 

Its a Small World Ride... one of my mom's favorite ride in Disneyland. HK Disneyland's boat ride was a lot better than the one in Anaheim California. But they both have the happy feeling of capturing the whole world's different culture. I used here October Afternoon pps, Simple Stories pps, cardstock, cork sticker and EK success embies. 

Brunch... He had leftovers from the hotel for brunch and ate them all in a bench at the Ocean Park. No problem with banana cake and McDonald's burger! I used here October Afternoon pps, Simple Stories pps, cardstocks, Echo Park cardstock sticker, K & Company paper flowers, AAS paper flower, buttons and baker's twine.

I am just happy to accomplish so much for the last two weeks! I haven't touch my project life yet and I still have a few photos to play with. Oh well, I still have two weeks to go anyway. I'm just crossing my fingers for more positive actions.

Enjoy and TFL peeps!

Catching up on Luigi's Pages

Its finally summer vacation time for me! Got NO work and school for four weeks, actually, I still have two more weeks for the countdown. And so, I finally got Mr. Mojo back with me and made eight pages for my eldest son Luigi!

Brothers... some of their bonding moments in traveling together. I used here American Crafts pps, Cosmo Cricket pps, baker's twine, metal embies, buttons, Maya Road embies, and DMC Thread.

Home Bound... with lots of happy memories and family bonding! I used here Cosmo Cricket pps, cardstocks, fabric ribbon, cork sticker, DMC Thread, metal and fabric brads, native twine and IKEA paper measuring tape.

Madame Tussauds... the famous wax museum! I used here American Crafts pps and Thickers chipboard letters, cardstock, fabric ribbons and metal brads.

Disneyland... the place where you can be a child at heart! I used here American Craft pps, Teresa Collins die cut paper, Prima chipboard sticker, MM metal embies, ribbons, buttons and cardstock.

Adventure Land... our first taste of Disneyland Hong Kong! The cruise was great, we rode twice and just had fun. I used here Fancy Pants pps, cardstock, Sandylion Disneyland pps, buttons, DMC Thread, cork sticker and Prima chipboard sticker.

Cinderella and Me... a little remembrance with a fairytale princess! I used here Fancy Pants pps, cardstock, DMC Thread and Sassafras carstock flowers.

Toy Story Land... was a new attraction in Disneyland Hong Kong. It was one of their favorite adventure because of the different exciting rides. I used here Fancy Pants pps, cardstock, buttons, DMC Thread, K and Company Tags to Go, cork stickers, Echo Park stickers and MM metal embellishment.

My first summer vacation week was spent mourning from the lost of my father in law. And right after that, I forced myself to scrap, thinking not to miss a single day worthless and playless! I spent a day just surfing around and finding the latest styles, and I was so amazed and inspired by Sasha Farina's and Piradee's creations. And for 5 days, I already finished 16 masculine pages for my two boys.

I am closely working on time management since I  have so much in mind to do and I only have two weeks before school starts again. So far the boys are ready for school by first week of June, books and school stuff are okay, dentist and flu shots are done and  one last vacation scheduled by the weekend to top it all. And for my own list, I wish to finish my Hong Kong pages and catch up with my project life, clean up my closet and shoe rack, catch up with old friends. Well, my last two weeks still sound exciting to me... I can't wait!

Thanks for looking as always!

FSCB's Sketch 19 is here!

Happy Labor Day in the Philippines! Its the most awaited day for the labor force here which makes it a non-working holiday in the entire country. Which makes it also a vacationing day for the rest of the people. And for FSCB, its a brand new month for a brand new sketch, here's my take...

Claw Daddy... a layout I made to remember my 44th birthday celebration. Claw Daddy is crab resto at Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna which serves best claws on garlic salad. It was such a superb dining experience most specially to my son Luigi and the rest of the family. I used here October Afternoon pps and scraps, cardstocks, AAS foil letter stickers, Prima flowers, metal and fabric covered brads, and baker twine.

Been on the go since last week, leaving me tons of paper works to finish by mid of this month. 3rd trimesters will be done in 2 more Saturdays, and I have soon to earn my 27 units in the grad school. I am getting ready for a scrapping haven with my friends towards the end of May, can't wait! Still have a month and half to enjoy my summer days and my kids.
