After the funfilled morning of shopping, demo classes,sumptuous lunch and bingo, next came the much awaited Scrap Challenge. We were required to use the Anna Griffin PPS provided by Marissa and also to use Bazzill Fancy edges and Boshers or washers(?). The theme was about friends and friendships. For my layout I used a black bracket shaped base CS and then I did some handcutting on the flowers from one of the patterned papers. I also used the fiskars lace border punch which I borrowed from Lee. Tinamad na kasi ako to go thru my stuff and open my new border punch. Thanks Lee for sharing your stuff!

It was again an anchievement on my part to be able to finish a layout in one hour. that's why it was really a big surprise when Marissa announced that my Layout won third place! Woohoo! It's my first On the spot Scrap challenge win! Our table proved to be lucky after all coz Candy won 2nd Place and Lee won the raffle for the Quickutz Squeeze! WooHoo!

Journaling reads:Scrapbooking is our common bond. But through the years, that bond has grown to something much more. It is now a friendship that is growing and Blooming!

And here's my Prize!Thank you very much Nette and Marissa for the wonderful stuff!

Let me share also the other goodies I got from the raffle and the other goodies that marissa and nette literally threw for us to catch! Everyone was jumping up and down trying to catch whatever came their way. Naku! kung di lang ako buntis talagang nakipagsabayan din ako. Luckily 3 items fell on my seat kaya nakakuha din ako. LOL!
With all the prizes I'm sure no one went home empty handed! Here's the loot I got!

It seems It was not only helga and me who were lucky that day! another LB scrapaholic won Nette's Summer Challenge! No other than my colleague Chiqui Gutierrez! Congratulations Chix! That sweet Solitude LO was simply stunning!

To Nette And Marissa, Thank you! Looking forward to your next SCRAPJAM!


Last Saturday, July 5, the LB Scrapaholics attended Ms. Marissa's (Scrapbooks Hawaii) and Ms Nenette Madero's (My Little Attic) SCRAPJAM! This was my first time to attend their EB but i have heard of how great their previous EBs were. So di ko talaga pinalampas tong event nato. And true enough, I really had a wonderful time. The ambiance pa lang bongga na! The house smelled so nice from the beautiful bouquets of flowers and aroma scents!

After the registration I headed straight for the scrapbook supplies and boy was I drooling at all the yummy stuffs! The moment I saw the Fiskars border punches, I just couldn't resist getting the lace and thredding water designs. Good thing Marissa gave out coupons wherein we could avail a 25% discount of any one Scrapbooks Hawaii item! (thanks so much Marissa!)Next I got the Kaiser Crafts "Baby Monologue" which I'll use for the Nursery.

Then I bought some PPS but this time I chose girl designs, again in preparation for the future girl layouts I'll be making in the future! LOL! Here are the other items I purchased.

After shopping, we settled in our respective tables for Marissa's demo classes. Liezl and I shared a table with Rachelle, Lee and Candy. I really enjoyed their company. I only get to chat with them in their blog's Cbox kaya it was a treat to finally get to chat with them in person. They were fun company to be with! Hope we get to share tables again in future EB's.

Marissa demonstrated to us 4 projects. It was the first time that I was able to finish all of the projects!Well... almost because the last 2 projects I purposely did not finish coz I wanted to put or use something else. But don't worry Marissa, I promise to finish it! Here are my outputs!The pink tote/gift bag was simply a lovely idea which I can use for the baptism of my 2nd baby.

After the classes, next of course was lunch! There lots of food! The Beef Caldereta was to die for! Congrats Nenette!you really know how to throw a fabulous crop party! Everything was just perfect! After that sumptuous meal was the Scrap jam Bingo hosted by Marissa's Daughter Jian! Unfortunately I didn't win. Cookie and helga who shared tables won the first two games then Christine V who sat at the table behind ours. Lucky nung table nila helga and cookie pero yung table namin hanggang pamumuro lang! LOL!

First School Project!

I know its a bit late but I would just like to share with you some pictures of my son's first day at junior Casa. As usual he was so excited! He even forgot to kiss me good bye sa sobrang excitement. And No crying scenes unlike his other classmates. He just makes me proud!

So now I'm officially a mom of a preschooler! And within the first week we were already given our first school project which was to make a time line for our kids. This will be used during the kid's bithday celebration in school. Here's my finished project. TFL!
