Sharie Just turned One!

Oh how time flies! It wasn't just too long ago when I gave birth to my second child Sharie. And now, she just turned one last friday November 6! I had a blast preparing for her party. Decided to make the give aways myself with the help of my mom and tita Meg.We sort of had an assembly line like in factories! LOL! I also made a cake decor from round chipboard boxes and altered it, and put Sharie's pictures from 1month old to 1 year.I also placed it on a rotating tray so visitors can just turn it to view Sharie's pictures. here's what I came up with:

Decided also not to use the common pink motif for little girls and instead added orange and apple green to the motif!

Yup it's sketch time once again and I would like to share with you my take on sketch 72 at Creative Scrappers! TFL!

This is a very simple layout yet I love the final outcome. No pps were used. just black and white card stock and a metal frame from MM. Used my lace border puncher for added look. No journaling too coz my title and pics speaks for itself. Again TFL!

On the Go!

At 7 to 8 months my DD Sharie, started to crawl! she totally loved the freedom to explore her surroundings. As usual mommy enjoyed taking pictures!LOL! So when my second DT sketch at Creative scrappers came up, I immediately knew what pictures to use. Here's Sketch 66 by Karan Gerber and my take on the sketch. TFL!

Title: On The Go!

I used Fancy Pants Aged florals PPS for this Layout and as usual my fave technique- Hand cutting!


You are now in the crawling stage
Always on the go trying to explore your surroundings.
Do I see a future mountaineer or cave explorer like Daddy?
Hmmm... We'll see!

Sharie, 81/2 mos. old

Two New Layouts!

Thanks goodness I finally had time to scrap this week! I have been busy lately with work that my hands are now really itchy to get hold of my scissors and craft Knife! Here's what I came up with.

For this page, I did some masking. TFL!

This is our official family picture for the year. I had some difficulty conceptualizing this layout because my picture is quite large.You see my husband didn't want me to use a smaller sized picture so I was stuck with this. But I'm happy with the outcome of this page. And I was also able to finally use my webster Pages PPS! Yipee!

Layouts to Share!

Recently browsed my files and noticed a few layouts I made a few weeks ago that I haven't uploaded yet.


This is the layout I submitted for Creative Scrappers' DESIGN TEAM CALL. Aside from being my Lucky Page (Coz I was chosen by CS as one of their DTs),this page is also very precious to me. My heart simply sings when I look at the picture. I can feel the love of my DD for me just by staring at this page!


Made this page for the PINK PAISLEE CHALLENGE last month at Create my Keepsake. I didn't win but I loved how this page turned out.

Lastly, This third layout is based on a sketch by Becky Fleck at Page Maps. Made this a few months back but failed to upload. Its a picture of my DD Sharie when she had her ear piercing done by Ninang Chiqui Gutierrez! All the other scrapaholics God parents were also present during the said event to give moral support and to document the event! Special thanks to Liezl for taking the pictures!

Sketchaholic Me!

Ever Since I discovered a couple of sketch blogs this year, I got totally hooked! I'm officially now a fan of a lot of these sketch blogs like Creative Scrappers, 52sketches52weeks, Inspired blueprints, Pagemaps and a lot more! I'm really loving all these fantastic sketches because it made me scrap fast and finish more layouts than last year.

Here are a few of my pages inspired from sketches.

Taken from 52 sketches 52 weeks Sketch 11:

This next sketch is from Scrappinkids' Sketch No. 3 Challenge for the month of june.I decided to do hidden journaling so I can accommodate more pictures.


This one is from A2Z Scraplets June sketch challenge.Good thing Joanne gave me one of their products so I was able to join their challenges.

This next layout I made during the LB scrapaholics Pajama party. This is my take of the sketch made by our very own Helga Vergara! Lovely sketch Helga!

Had a chance also to join Inspired Blueprints' sketch 25 challenge. here's my take:

Now to do you believe me? Yup! I think its an addiction! But I don't mind coz I'm having fun doing this! LOL!

Sunday, June 7, 2009


Its my first time to join a challenge at PAGEMAPS. But I loved this Sketch of becky plus I fell in love with the prize that awaits the winner so I thought I'd give it a shot. Here's the sketch followed by my take on the sketch:

- Smiles that melts your heart
- Once upon a time, there was a lovely little princess and she had her Daddy
wrapped around her little finger. Secretly, he didn't mind at all.

I used the photos of my husband Ryan and DD Sharie who were "goofin' around" while I had fun taking pictures of the two. Just love seeing them bonding together and having fun! Sharie is truly a Daddy's Girl! I used Fancy Pants and DCWV PPS. Did some stitching and punch out also the strip of PP as an add on design to the paper. TFL!

My Little Attic Challenge Entry

It's been a while since Nenette of My Little Attic had a challenge. So when she finally had one I couldn't miss it for the world. Actually the challenge is quite difficult. For one I would be scrapping about me since the theme was " A day in my life". I always have a hard time making layouts about myself. Second we had to use different brands of pps! And to top it all, we had to make our own embellishment and do at least 2 types of distressing technique. Definitely a challenge right? Well here's what I came up with.....

I used BG Urban Prarie and several old Fancy Pants PPS. For my homemade embellishment I made a tree out of PPS. Had this picture also of me sitting and relaxing on a bench during one of my trips to Beijing but I decided to cut it out so it would seem that I'm relaxing under the tree.Its my first time also to used a corrugated board as my base paper. All in all I had fun creating this page! Thanks for the challenge nette!
