Oh my Prima!

Have you dropped by Prima's blog lately? I tried to keep my jaw from dropping as I viewed their gorgeous products as well as the projects created by their DT. Just look at this yummy collection:

Love all those pearls and flowers! I would be so happy if I could just get my hands on these yummy goodies. Go check out what their DT created with those faves here.

Trying a new LO size

I've done 12 x12, 8 1/2 x 11, 6x6, 8x8 and so I thought why not 6x12 LOs? I've been seeing a lot of them lately and I was inspired to make some after I saw the sample LOs from American Crafts catalog. It was actually fun making them. Here's the first one I made inspired by our late president Cory Aquino. Of course I used a yellow background cardstock for this one. :)

The second one was inspired from a Page Maps sketch:

Here's my take but using a 12 x6 version instead:
Hope I gave justice to the wonderful sketch. I think I'm going to make more of these soon and I'm planning to get some 12x6 page protectors too. :)

Not so happy little girl

Often times we scrap about happy pictures with happy moments but as I was browsing through some of my little girl's photos, I saw this one picture where she was in tears. The photo was beautifully captured by my sister and I love how it turned out in black & white too. And last month, Scrappin' Kids had a challenge about scrapping about not so happy moments and I knew I had to use Marcie's crying photo for that challenge. This was actually a last minute entry as I was pretty busy with the Scrappin' Moms Idol stuff before. And I guess the clouds were in tears too when I took a photo of my LO thus resulting to a not so good photo of it (will try to get a better photo of this when it's not raining anymore).

Title: In Tears

Supply List:
PPs- Pink Paislee
Journaling card- Webster's Pages
Flowers- Prima Marketing
Letter Stickers- Thickers by American Crafts
Misc.- Button, Lace, mini roses

Been MIA but I'm back again! :)

I realized I've been neglecting my blog for over a month now. I didn't even realize (until today) that my blog already turned 1 last July 18. So belated happy blogday to me! hehe. I guess I got too addicted to Facebook that I was too lazy to update here. lol. (Yeah yeah, blame it all on Facebook!) Sorry bout that. But hey, I'm back! :) And got lots of layouts to share. All of these were my entries for the Scrappin' Moms Idol 3. Unfortunately, my last entry got me kicked out of the contest. Hehe. But it's actually okay. I was happy I even made it that far in this year's contest. Last year I was booted off at round 2! lol. At least this time it was the second to the last round. :) It was a fun, exciting, frustrating (at times), journey this year. I'm just so happy I decided to join because I was able to finish a lot of LOs and even a mini album (which I rarely do) and some ATCs. It was my first time to deal with ATCs and it was fun. :) I might end up making more soon. :)

Without further adieu, I present you my finished layouts:

Round 1... (ting!) Pieces of you (Paper Piecing)

Round 2 - Reduce, Re-use, Recycle

Round 3- Space it Out! Celebrate the Everyday! (White Space)

Round 4- Let's Play (Altering pps & embellishments)

last but not the least, my final entry...Round 5- Be a bookworm (mini-album & ATC inspired from a book)

My ATCs:
Inspired from a cookbook! :)
TFL! And I hope I won't get too lazy to update again. lol. :)
