Then, I learned from my dear friend, Ann, that she'll be having a Clique Booth on her wedding this December 2008. So now I know! For me this is such a lovely souvenir that the guest will surely keep. Its personalized and something new. SO excited to go na on her wedding day. Ann also told me that this is "unlimited"!

House Album Entry for ArtzDesScrap

I have not received yet the album from Artzdescrap
I waited til last Friday, unfortunately I was not able to received the house album. So worried that I can no longer join the challenge. Last weekend I have been busy on planning and making this album. So glad that I'm on the mood. Translation: Ginanahan ako..LOL. I used mostly my scraps on this, actually this are the mini papers left. And I was also able to use my Inque Boutique stamps.. and I really love it! I'm planning to collect it.

I've seen the word "Lomo" before while browsing Jason Magbanua's site . But I just ignored it. Few months ago, I learned from my brother about the "Lomo" or the "Lomography". It is simply using a camera with specialized feature emphasizing casual snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over saturated colors, blurring, "happy incidents" and alternative film processing are the parts of the Lomographic technique. The cameras are one of a kind some of their cameras make use of multiple lenses and rainbow colored flashes or extreme optical distortion. Use it in a way to document your everyday life.. something like that as in " don't think, just shoot!"..hehe! Nakulitan lang ako sa look ng cameras... By the way, concept of this is to use the films.. di cya digital. So medyo hassle din, you don't get to see right away the pics you've taken. . .

birthday card for Dennis

I sneak a time alone this weekend. Hehe! I just decided to make a simple birthday card for my one and only..dear husband. Dennis is a very simple person and he even criticize my work minsan..hehe complicado daw sa dami=) Even before he's like that, so I make sure this card will be just like him. Simple pero sweet. Secret lang to ha.. His birthday will be on the 18th of May=) I used my cellphone to capture it.. kasi he usually use our digicam. baka madiscover nya eh...

What do u think??

1st EB

I made this layout last Saturday. Dennis & I stayed at home the whole weekend. I guess, its just the right time to relax and do some scrapping stuffs. Well, I get to see this picture taken by my cellphone ( we got no cameras when we go to the fundraising..sayang nga eh). I was so happy attending the EB + Fundraising. Maricel and I did not plan coming to this event. It just happened=) We are both happy to see our scrapbooking idols (as in!) and as a first was good to see the demo conducted by Nita and Cabbie. I really dig new ideas that time.. I confessed I never knew about the "tearing effect" ...literal na tearing pala pwedi na=) I was so kilig also to my hubby who bids for the scrap bag i wanted. We lost actually, pero ok lang kasi wala na sa budget, but I got a cheaper bag na pwedi na rin for my stuffs ( scrapbooking caddy). Its the thought that counts.. diba..

Supplies used: "st" chipboard (heidi swapp)/ craft express chipboard and stickers)/ lace cardstock (ki memories)/ prima flowers/ semco pain (fushia/ chocolate brown)/ tags (basic grey blush)/ miscellaneous: brads, rikraks

I got a text from a telecoms company and invited me for an exam yesterday. Well, not so sure how I did. It is one of the leading telecoms..that's why i'm too hopeful that I can pass the exams. I'm hard. I wish I could get my a job there. So happy my husband is so supportive, that he even waited for me=)

Mini album

Here's the pages of my first mini album. hope you enjoy the view

finished my wedding album

During the Holy Week, I get to work on my wedding album. And good news! I'm done with it. I just like to share the cover layout I made. I'll be posting the LOs inside it soon=) So happy that I finished it. .

My Man

This would be my entry to Kaya 12 of Pinoy Scrapbookers. The first time I read about the challenge.. there are so many people I got in my mind. Well I got no doubt choosing the person closest to my heart, my husband. This is my first time to do hidden journaling and I'm really clueless of what to say at first...I got no idea of talaga but one thing is for sure.. I'm still in-love and thankful. Dennis actually saw the LO, and he was so curious and he keeps on asking "baket 10 year kagad??" And he saw the hidden paper behind the scalloped paper..but he never attempts to read it. Pero makulit..he wants to know..hehe!

Supplies used: Bazzill CS & scalloped/ patterned paper (7gypsies)/ flowers (rekindled moments)/ "on" "our" "yr" (junkitz)/ 10th (heidi swapp)/ gold butterfly (simple joys)/ buttons (rhonna farrer)/ threads (dmz)/ brown acrylic (semco)

@ 27

I made this LO last monday. And I just finished doing the journaling yesterday. Most of the papers I used on this is Love Elsie. I just love the colors. I got the idea from my Scrapbook Play magazine that I bought in Booksale. It simply indicates some highlights of my age (27)..

Supplies used: Bazzill CS/ Star chip board (scenic route)/"27" (heidi swap)/ blue & brown acrylics (semco)/ yellow & red papers (fiskars)/ staedler fine liner (brown) for journaling

I Miss LUCKY...

He's our youngest brother.. that's no joke! He's my mom's little boy. My mom used to say that she feels she really has a baby.. she gives him a bath twice a weeks, she grooms him, she feeds him...But she's happy having our little baby.

Lucky is a shitzu. . He was given to us by my dad's friend when he was 2 months old only. He's playful and a real cutie. My 2 brothers, Sam & Sherwin, used to play with him and minsan inaasar. Lucky is quite "pikon". I can still remember.For the past 4 years, he made us happy and entertained...sobra! I'll always love this dog of ours.. super love.

October 4, 2007..i found him dead. We have no idea what it was. Pero I remember the night before, he used to play with my twin nephew who visited us. No trace of weakness...haaay! When I saw him, I can't believe he's gone, and I'm in a denial stage pa. I just left for work that time and I don't even bother to wake everyone... basta di ko natanggap na Lucky has left us already..dramatic ba? I just happened to see Yoyin's blog, kaya naging emotional ule ako....huhu!

What Your Name Means

The link was forwarded to me by my officemate. Something you can read about...try it!
