I'm back!

It's been a long time since my last post. I have been so busy with a lot of stuff the past few months. We finally got to settle in our new home, store renovation has finished and all the holidays are over. So now I'm back with a new post and a new layout. I have decided to keep my DT spot over at Scrap That Baby. It's been a very big help for me scrapping wise. Being on the team has helped me finish layouts although I think I still need to produce more layouts this year with all the scrap goodies stacking up my closet. The prompts are all perfect for my daughter's photos that are waiting to be scrapped.

The latest prompt for February is all about LOVE. Since February is love month, our prompt was to create a layout that shows what we love about our baby. Join us at Scrap that Baby for our Prompt 23. Here is my take on the prompt:

I really do love her smile! It brightens my day every time. =)

Baby Gear- Scrap That Baby

Another prompt is up at Scrap That Baby and this prompt is quite special for the whole team as all our layouts were chosen to be published at the November Issue of Scrapstreet ezine. Check out page 43 for the Scrap That Baby Feature. =) Mine is on page 44. We were asked to scrap about our favorite baby gear. I knew I had to scrap about Marcie's car seat. I think it's one of my favorite baby gears as it really helped us a lot especially when we had to do some travelling. Before we had a car seat it was quite difficult for me to leave the house. I had to have someone to drive for me because I had to carry Marcie because I couldn't leave her at home. When she was about 10 months old it was already difficult to keep her still while in the car. We bought her a car seat and it solved my problems! lol.

The moment she sits on her car seat, she becomes quiet and behaved. And just a few minutes after the car starts moving, I turn around and find her asleep already. She falls asleep almost every time she sits there. But as she grew a little older, she figured out how to escape from her car seat. Smart little kid!

Ok moving on to the layout... Here's what I created for our baby gear prompt:

Supplies: Paper: Fancy Pants Design, Cardstock: American Crafts, Chipboard: KI Memories, Maya Road, Alphabet: Pink Paislee, Journaling Spots: Melissa Frances, Paint: Apple Barrel, Pen: American Crafts, Punches: Fiskars.

"Head, shoulders, knees and toes"

You're probably familiar with the kiddie song "My toes, my knees, my shoulder, my head" or maybe the other one that goes, "Head, shoulders, knees and toes" and I'm sure you've got a body part of your baby that you simply adore. My little girl has these chubby cheeks that I can't get enough of. I love to kiss her and sometimes I pinch her cheeks because they are so cute and soft.

Well our new prompt for Scrap That Baby is all about your baby's body parts. Scrap something about a part of your baby's body whether it's his/her hands, feet, eyes or nose. Check out the STB blog for more inspiration. Here's my take for this challenge:

Everything I used in this layout is from American Crafts. I used left over strips of patterned papers and punched their edges with different border punches to create this simple but fun design.

And I just found out that this layout won me a price from American Crafts too! Yey! AC is one of my favorite scrapbook manufacturers and I just love their products. You can see the announcement here.

Wow what a great post-birthday present for me. =) Hope you could join us at Scrap That Baby.

Scrap that Baby's Sweet Summertime blog hop

Summer is over here in the Philippines and although it has been raining here the past few weeks, I can still feel the heat of summer because at Scrap That Baby, we're having a fun summer blog hop! :) ***********************************************************************************************
Welcome to the Scrap that Baby's Sweet Summertime blog hop!! Thank you so much for hopping along on our first ever blog hop! If you didnt come from Brandi's blog or you popped upon this blog and didnt realize we were blog hopping you need to go to Scrap That Baby and start the HOP! You will need to comment on ALL of the blogs to be eligible for the grand prizes listed on the main site! Plus so many of our awesome designers are giving away a prize on their blogs as well. You will not want to miss out. There are MANY MANY chances to win! Our theme for this blog hop is SWEET SUMMERTIME!! The members of our design team will all be sharing fantastic summer projects, stories, tips or ideas for keeping cool and having fun in the summer with a baby along.

Here's a fun summer layout I'd like to share with you today:

These photos were taken during our summer vacation in Ilocos at the hotel's swimming pool area. My daughter Marcie loves playing in the pool. It keeps her cool and happy. I also got her a small inflatable pool so she can still go swimming when we're just at home.

*Scrapbook Summer layout tip: I'm sure most of you have some paper flowers in your stash somewhere... Why not try creating a "sun" embellishment out of your yellow flowers like I did with my layout above. Just top the flowers' center with a large button or in this case, a circle shaped foam and there you have it... your very own sun embellishment. :)

Oh and I've got a treat for one of my lucky blog visitors... everyone who comments on this post will be entitled to an entry for a chance to win a cool scrapbook package from me. :) Some of the the prizes included are:

Scrap That Baby Prompt 11

Scrap That Baby's prompt no. 11 is up! This time it's all about action. Do you have photos of your baby walking, crawling, dancing, jumping... anything in action? Then this prompt is for you. I recently took photos of my little girl during her first school performance. I can't believe she's already in Nursery. She's been enjoying school so far and I thought she would be shy during her performance. But to our surprise, she did not mind the crowd at all! She was the most energetic among her classmates too. :) Here's my take on prompt 11:

Oh did she jump so high! She really made us proud. And if you want to see her in action watch this:
