Here's the layouts I submitted to Suz Doyle for using a new paperlines and rub-ons called BEEN THERE DONE THAT click here : I was too lucky to be picked as one of those who will have the chance to make use of their products and create layouts. Actually, since we all know getting international packages takes awhile here, my scheduled submission was delayed too. Good thing Suz is so nice to me, she let me have it submitted on the 3rd of December. Again the package did not arrive yet, I only got it last Dec. 6 in time for me to go for Singapore-I only got back last Monday and have done the layout yesterday only because of so many things to do back in the office.

I was able to finish 3 layouts though only 2 were able to meet the time alotted for me, I would like to note that these two layouts were done during coffee and lunch breaks only. I'm happy that Suz like it though she didnt know I only finished it in a flash.

Please to show it here.

Hope we could have those products here in PH coz they are all lovely and amazing, the papers are back to back and the rub-ons are quick to adhere.

Thank you so much.

Another Digital Page

Here's another digital page I made.


Here's another layout of me, I tried submitting to BG and it was accepted. This picture was candidly taken while I'm resting after a long tiring wedding day of mine.

My Prize from Aussie Scrap

Few months back I come across this site there was an on-going contest of just merely dropping a comment- which I did- luckily from more than a hundreds who participated, my name was picked- I think I'm the only person from the Phils.

I won this package and I was tasked to do a layout using this wonderful products-since I only got the package in time for us to leave for Singapore- I havent started a layout yet, but I do have 3 in line now, half finish and very soon to be posted here.

The package contained 48 pcs. back to back PPS and 17 pcs. rub-ons-as in. The papers are all gorgeous the brand name is new "BEEN THERE DONE THAT" but some of the designs are really not meant for PH use-good thing got some pictures of Kangaroo from Singapore-maybe I can use it as subject to matched the papers-hehehe. Thank you Susan Doyle for these.

My New Nikon D40

Here's my new Nikon D40, actually its a Christmas present from my loving husband-he will take pictures and I will scrap-talking about partnership here. Hehehe.

Pictures when we got the Nikon D40/Vivo City and Orchard Road-Singapore

Here's some of the pictures taken in Singapore, my husband bought me a Nikon D40 for our use and my scrapbooking use hehhee. After which we went to Vivo City at Harbour Front near Sentosa Island-to meet Joey and later we went to Orchard to have dinner with the newly wed couple Kevin and A. Joy! The last batch of trip is MJ's picture going to Changi Airport for our departure to Manila. We did have so much fun-so little time-yet we did enjoy the trip.

Dianne, Cabbie and Ella Tag me again

Diane particularly tagged me following this instructions:

1. Mention the person who tagged you and create a link back to them.
2. Copy-paste the traits for all the twelve months (see below).
3. Pick your month of birth.
4. Highlight the traits that apply to you.
5. Tag 12 people and let them know by visiting their blogs and leaving a comment for them.
6. Let the person who tagged you know when you've done it!

Here's my birth month below:

JANUARY: Stubborn and hard-hearted. Ambitious and serious. Loves to teach and be taught. Always looking at people’s flaws and weaknesses. Likes to criticize. Hardworking and productive. Smart, neat and organized. Sensitive and has deep thoughts. Knows how to make others happy. Quiet unless excited or tensed. Rather reserved. Highly attentive. Resistant to illnesses but prone to colds. Romantic but has difficulties expressing love. Loves children. Loyal. Has great social abilities yet easily jealous. Very stubborn and money cautious.

The highlighted text really speak a lot of me except for others. I would have the tendency to be looking at people's flaws but I only keep it to myself rather talked about it with the others. Im not neat coz I have the tendency to mess things but I have the capacity to tide it up right after as if nothing happens-but I'm forgetful too-that makes me less attentive because I think aloud and I would walk the talk. I would only know its possible or this could be done, only when Im talking with someone, I do think quitely yes, but my mind works when I'm on the go and my mouth is not close hehehe. Well, honestly even if Im an accountant by profession with licensed at that Im not good at handling my personal money-but other's money yes-how ironic diba? Well, that's me.

Hmmm, now Im tagging Ella, Cabbie, Nita, Marj, Candy, Mich, Lee, Donna, Julie, Cookie, Liza, and Au.

Thanks Diane!

2nd digipage

My second digi page, was doing my homework for our district newsletter, while waiting for some other pictures for my layouting, I decided to finished this digital layout of my daughter Hannah. The pictures were all taken before bed time, she was full of energy and having some fun. We were so tired and yet seeing her and her ate like this, make our tiredness washed away!

I aspire to be the winner always to my husband and my children's hearts. I want them to realize that they are always number 1 on my heart and that's enough reward for me.

4) My inbox piled up, I dont have time to use PC last weeken-actually my husband was on the PC all the time grrrrrrrrrr
5) My journal notebook is not updated
6) We werent able to hear the Mass yesteday and I felt terribly guilty about it; and
7) Im too clumsy when I submitted my RK entry - I forgot to attached the layout-waaaaaaaaah " ang tanga tanga ko."

Additonal BG Layout

Before long I used to buy so many tools and the likes etc. Now I'm collecting papers in my stuff is really piling up, that's why I really have to creat and creat more layouts and used my papers. hay nako di maubos ubos- kasi bakit- waah - because I keep on buying... Anyways, here are some of those layouts ive finished..

I finally attended the Mini-EB

Last Friday, I was finally been able to attend the Mini-EB at Nita Ang's place, you know what, it was not difficult to adjust since there were so many close encounters already made through email and blog hopping. But it was a night, rather an early dawn well-spent because the ladies were all nice and accomodating. Au was so bubbly,tama nga sila di sya madamot mag share ng alam nya as to the many how to's and what's new in the scrapbooking industry. Nita was so warmth too, to make me and my husband feel at home as in. Lalo na si Allain who kept my husband's company and by the way I look at it, my husband too did enjoy. Cabbie really was scrap addict hehehe kasi while we were discussing things she was busy doing her layout for Scrappin Mom's- o diba as in professional at diligent sya on her obligations. Mitch was the prim and proper in the group, she was so gracious that at first I really though she's single, only when I saw the gallery of Visual Creations and realized she's a mother too. Lee was late to arrive and she was gracious enough to attend even though there's the temptation for her not to show up-hehehe of course scrapbook stuff of her just arrived- ako man on her shoes would think twice. hehehe.

Well, I did enjoy even a lot, I thought it was scrap-talk-eat and scrap, so i brought a 80% of my stuff-hehehe but it wasnt-but no regret because I really enjoyed it and I was able to learn from them and see their works and hear their thoughts in person.

You know, these people are really wonderful and what's good about it is they are willing to share what they know without even asking and also help us.

My husband somehow understand why they are people like us who love this hobby so much, he was actually touched by reading and browsing over Nita's work and he understand somehow why they are people so passionate about this hobby.

Sabi nga ni Maricel on her long time commercial- Mauulit to...malimit.

Thanks ladies for accomodating and welcoming me.

My 1st Digi-page layout

I was so excited to try digi-scrapbooking that I really woke up early to have one. Pls. see attached layout I created through the help of creating keepsake guide. Though this need a lot of polishing and stuff but i enjoyed doing journaling - i still need to learn how to write a text over it (hehehe) but still, it makes me want to do more...thanks for looking.

November 1-2 Layouts Created

This is not actually related to the date itself, but actually, I was able to create 5 LOs' for 2 days. I actually start cutting, matting and adhering my stuff in the office last Nov. 1- yes we have worked last Nov. 1 (weird noh). That's the catch if you're working in a internationally owned company-they dont understand our traditions and all that. Not to mention that I really need to be in the office being the head of our Accounting Dept- with all these thing I need to check and approve before we finally take off for the Holiday.

We'll got this 5 Layouts created in the office-half baked nga lng- then I rush to Memorial Cemetery in NLEX where my father in law was buried. I actually commuted and forgot to bring my cellphone so I really dont know how will my husband would pick up at Malinta Exit. I actually used my charm and borrowed a cp to text him (hehehe) yes, to a stranger good thing there was a good samaritan who handed me his cp without a fee.

Anyways, dami kwento noh ito na po yung layouts ko:

Thank you for looking!

Thanks for your time!

I'm blessed

Yesterday I'm so happy and feel so blessed with all the things that unfolds before me at the start of my day. Later I will write here what was it, the next was actually the best- I was a victim of this modus-operandi of lossing ones wallet and using my credit cards fraudulently, last June 20, 2007. I appealed and submitted complains to those banks and yesterday one of those bank called me up- and they told me they will be happy to reverse the transactions including the late and finance charges. Though this particular card - the thief spent only P3,360 worth of wine - kaya maliit lang, nonetheless, its still a blessing! Im still awaiting for the other one, this Oct. 24 the amount that was used was to the tune of P22,499.75-positively I believe- it will turnout to my advantage since theres already a precursor to that effect. The last one was an addition for an extra-income for me - yeheey - I was asked for a retainer basis to handle their books of accounts (I'm a CPA by profession), gladly even if the offer was quite small compared to what I used to ask- I said yes -okay na rin to-pang tustos sa addictions ko LOL! So that simple blessings I got yesterday really made my day, kahit medyo nasabon me during our Executive Meeting with the BOSS- hehehe- I dont mind at all- coz I'm Bless!

It's nice to feel and be thankful to whatever blessing we have- just to share you this text I just received this morning:

1. Ants never sleep;
2. Pigs cant raise their heads to look at the sky;
3. Butterflies only live for seven days!

See, you have 3 more reasons to be thankful for today. Being something always has its ups and downs. Just remember, while your complainig about your situation, someone maybe wishing he/she was in your place. So be thankful and count your blessings.

Good day! Thanks for your time!

My Simple Scrapbook from bookoto and my freebies

I was so excited to see my scrapbook mags, which I subscribe from bookoto. I actually sad about my AMM and CK subscriptions which I made last June 2007, to date I did not receive any yet. If only I've known bookoto do the same offer with less waiting I could have ordered. Anyway I subscribe to them the Simple Scrapbooks issues and got too many freebies to go with it. Sobrang saya ko, kasi I was actually longing for those during the last Scrapfest, buti nlng with the generosity of Ms. Julie and Ms.Sheryl I got this.

Thank you so much and here are they...

My Kaya 6 Entry

Here's a LO that I entered in PS Kaya 6 Challenge, the requirement is to use purely Card Stock. Actually, my eldest daughter pick the pictures coz she noticed that all my challenge LO were her sister's. After finishing the LO she wanted to bring it in her school to show off particulary to her teacher whom she fondly called Teacher Arlene. She handed me another pictures of her on her school uniform and ask me to prepare another LO of her... Here's the LO-

My MLA Entry BG LO with 4 pix

This LO was submitted for MLA Challenge, I used 4 pictures of Hannah here, all of which were taken at the same time. I sued BG papers, my base is Lollipop Shoppe Wild Cherry, I handcut flowers from BG Stela Ruby Tea with Jane and use BG Ashburry Street for my photo mat, again I just similar design and insert it as border to my photos. I'm still studying my adobe photoshop and this was the outcome.

My Ist Kit from AMM

I was so happy to know that my kit from AMM just arrived. I was too excited to open it and to play with it.

The announcement for the Idol

After all the challenges winner were called and some more raffle prizes that I did not get a chance to be called- the idol finalist were called up, one by one. I cant imagined the mix emotions and feelings with these ladies got, but with all the LO's they've created and being in the finals- panalo na sila.

Well when the 1st six was called my hubby was already around the corner, I was quite sad when Diane was included on the first six, they were eliminated. But again, Im still happy for her. Then another 3 were called and I saw Cabbie already and Au as well, and of course Tin ( I dont quite know her but her acrylic LO was amazing with that shadow picture of her)!

My hubby miscalled already, a time for me to go, but looking at the 3 whom were called and my bet was there, sabi ko panalo na si Cabbie. I missed the announcement and her speech. Congratulations, you deserve it and knowing it yesterday lang parang nanalo na rin ako hehehe.

Kasi elimination palang ng 30 bet ko na siya eh.

Im happy to be there and I enjoy it a lot. I hope makasali me next time sa idol at makagawa rin me ng amazing LO's like them.

Congratulations to all the winners and to the ladies behind this successful event, you know who are Kudos to all of you- till next Scrapfest!

The Shining Moment Challenge & Idol

After the mini-album we were asked to prepare for the next challenge entitled My shining Moment. Thanks to Ella Go, for helping me print my wedding picture into BW. I actually finished the challenged in a flash, and I did use the requirement of using 2 Ki Memories PPS,but unluckily I did not bag any prize even on the raffle. Huhuhu. Honestly luhaan akong umuwi, ganun pa man masaya me kasi I met Diane M. and Ella Go, I missed Zabeth. actually these are the few people I would chat a lot and help me a lot and somehow help me how to get by in the E-group, but of course not to mentioned the Divas in the likes of Ria, Pia, Iris, Liza, Joanne and Mia- I all met them. These are the few people who would always open to help me out for some of my too elementary questions hehehe- thank you guys! I admire you from a far as in-nahihiya lng me to approach you kasi you guys are already have created names on this hobby.

Here's the LO I made for the Shining Moment Challenge- kasawa nga lang kasi for the past few weeks Ive created 4 different LO of Me -hehehe.

Part 2 on My 1st Scrapfest

Here's the 2nd part of my experience in attending scrapfest and making the mini-album. I actually appreciated Liza B. in helping me how to use the crop-a-dile, I was so excited that I used it here. what nice about this one, my husband wont hear me anymore in may pagpopokpok heheehe. Thanks Liza!

Here's the last few pages, I did the doodling here and the last one just to give highlight to the final page. This is actually an entry to Delmonte Challenge, I did not do much, coz I was doing the mini-album on a per page basis, I cant cope up with the time pressure they gave, but I enjoy it after this is my take home prize naman eh. I already got an inspiration to have this mini-album as my Christmas gift to my Accounting Staff, I actually asked them to give me their best 5 photos for this project. Thanks Scrappin Mom for the inspiration.

So here it goes:

My 1st Scrapfest Oct.6, 2007

I was all excited to attend my very first Scrapfestival, my husband actually brought me there after we had our daily Saturday routine of going to the market and buy our 2 weeklong food. I actually came in late because of that, hehehe. I saw Cabbie and Mia and 2 girls I dont know yet. I think Cabbie recognized me already but I'm quite shy seeing somebody I looked up to very much. She's one of my bet on the Scrappin Mom Idol.

I was assigned on table no. 45 and I was actually seated beside Mel and Pearl and a lady whom Ms. Marian King would approached (Ms. Marian was seated accross our table). We were actually asked to do a "thank you card" and a challenged after that-kaya lng di me nakagawa because I was so engrossed doing the mini-album.

The good thing about this album was the divas (pahiram ng word Ella ha) taught us some techniques on a per page of the mini-book, which I found very exciting. However, I would wish sana they could have it long enough for us Newbies to understand better. Pearl who was with me opted not to do it, she do shop a lot and look around a lot. I like her because she was so generous in giving compliments hehehe di nya alam bago lang rin ako hehehe.

Here's the mini-album which I actually finished at home last Sunday!
to be continued on the next posting!
