I was pleasantly surprised when my good friend Liza posted in our egroup that my “First Joy Ride” Lay-out was picked as featured lay-out of the day at 2peas yesterday. Who would have thought that a rushed LO done last year (but posted in 2 peas last Thurs) would be noticed.
Didn’t I tell you that it’s my second time? The first was this lay-out.
This small feat is like a major accomplishment to a humble scrapbooker like mwah *hihihi*
Do you like this look better or the pink one? Let me know. This is a default theme so I’m still learning how to change some colors (that is, if allowed).
Might still change it…so bear with me…the blog and the author are still work-in-progress… (forever?!).
Here’s a post-Valentine lay-out I made for hubby and I. The photos were supposed to be used for PS Kaya 22 but I didn’t make it to the deadline. Aside from having a crunch time, I can’t seem to decide what song to use. Anyway, I like how this turned out…silly and sweet!
YOU & ME (forever…always)
Journalling: A little silly…sometimes crazy…sometimes impatient…but always in love.
By the way, the photos were taken during a friend’s wedding last September ’08. This mobile photo-booth is the hottest trend now for wedding souvenirs. They print double and give 1 set to the couple so they have their own copies of the guests’ photos too. Cool! Wish it was uso during our wedding 10 years ago ;o).
I was so thrilled when I received an email from Mareng Becky (Fleck) of the famous PageMaps asking me to be one of the contributors in her March newsletter and sketches . Of course, I excitedly accepted even though a bit apprehensive as it has been a long time since I followed a sketch.
Here’s the sketch that was assigned to me:
Decided to rotate the sketch to the right and use this:
So here’s my take:
(Materials Used: Basic Grey, MME, October Afternoon, Tinkering Ink-PAPERS; Prima, Heidi Swapp, American Crafts-FLOWERS; American Crafts velvet THICKERS; Prima, MME JOURNALLING TAGS; Ranger ACRYLIC PAINT; Ranger STICKLES; Local glittered alpha CHIPBOARD, BUTTON, LACE, BLINGS)
(Journalling: I often wonder how come such a pure beauty like you come from an imperfect one like me?It must indeed be God’s pure & perfect love. As you grow old, may your beauty shine and touch people’s lives. Remember though, that beauty is never skin-deep and superficial, it is what you are inside that transcends what is truly and purely beautiful.)
Glad I found the perfect photos to go with it. These were taken during our long holiday in Boracay last Dec/Jan. Gaby was trying to build a sandcastle here while I was busy snapping some shots of the island’s beauty. I found the most beautiful in her with those angles. Don’t you agree?
Hope you will try the sketch too. It’s so easy and fun to do. I will have to refer to Becky’s sketches more often now for inspiration, that’s for sure!
