I've been a very bad blogger. I'm so sorry blog for not being able to visit you often. It's been really hectic around here especially now that Christmas is only a few days away. Plus got lots of stuff to take care of. 2 major events are happening this December and I will be sharing the good news one of these days. And I feel so blessed despite the busy schedule because God has been showering us with lots of blessings this year. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everything will successfully fall into place.

Have been busy with so much things but sadly not too busy with scrapping. I really wish I had more time to scrap. Got lots of new tools and materials but no time to really play with them yet. :(

Well I've been going through my digital photos and found some projects which I haven't shared here yet. I believe I made these months ago and never got to post them yet.

Here's a simple Thanksgiving Card I made using KI Memories paper and chipboard accents (cardstock is American Crafts)

The next one is a Christmas card with a hidden "door" where you can tuck in some cash for your "inaanaks" (godchildren) this Christmas. :)

Untie the white ribbon and it reveals the secret door.

Sweet November

Wow November already??? I really need to start working on my Christmas t0-do list now. Had fun yesterday with little Marcie as we went Trick-or-Treating at the mall. She was so happy with the sweets she got but I had to hide some of them or she'll eat them all in a day! lol

This year I decided to dress up Marcie as Pucca. She loves watching the Pucca cartoons and it so happened I found an old red Chinese inspired shirt (yes, it was mine) and I turned it into a dress instead for Marcie. Hehe, that saved me from a couple of bucks from buying her a costume. I used a Styrofoam ball and painted it black (I didn't have any black paint around so I used black shoe shine, haha). I cut the ball in half and inserted them in two separate hair nets. I then tied Marcie's hair in two buns and attached the styrofoam balls on top of them to make them look bigger. I also painted her cheeks with red "dimples" using lipstick to make her look more like Pucca.

Well the 1st day of the month for me is starting out great. I just saw Artz de Scrap blog and found out I won their Altered Tin Challenge! Sweet! It's been so long since I last joined a challenge and I'm glad I was able to submit my entry (though last minute) or I wouldn't have won. Thank you Artz de Scrap! :)

And since November 1 is All Saints Day, we went to the cemetery to visit our departed loved ones (my dad, grandpa, uncle & great grandmother). It was like a family reunion coz most of my relatives were there. Had some good food, a bit of scary stories, and finished the day with a prayer. May all the souls of those who've gone before us rest in peace.

Hope we'll all have a sweet November ahead.
