Binge-ing. . .



…at the first ever Scrap buffet by our local kit club,  Studio Azul with  the cooperation of Pinoyscrapbookers and Visual Creations  last July 11, 2009.


I really had a blast and finished a number of layouts…me? yes, me!?!  who’s a slllloooowww scrapper, made  4 –12×12, 4 – 8×8 and 1- 10×10 pages.  What a feat, indeed!


The day really had all those mojos running with overflowing 300++ pages from almost 50 participants, imagine!  It started with a sketch challenge using a ready made kit that included 1 CS, 3 PPs, some embellishments and a set of alpha thickers/stickers.  I was lucky to get a kit that  kinda matches my intended photos.  I was doubly lucky to win the Sketch 1 (we either work on sketch 1 or 2 or both) challenge (congrats to my bff,  Bjay,  for winning Sketch 2, how’s that for good vibes!).  Here’s the winning LO:






After an hour or so, the scrap (and yummy food) buffet was opened…we feasted on lots of papers, printed transparencies, embellishments and there were a lot of kind manangs and manongs (who were baffled, I’m sure) who assisted us and even  die-cut for us. You can’t proceed there though unless you finish 1 layout starting from the sketch challenge.  A serving consisted of 2 CS, 3 PPs  and 10 embellishments!  Not only that, our moderator Candy was so kind and energetic to supply our table with rub-ons and alphas every now and then!


So, here are the rest of the 12×12’s that I finished the whole afternoon (while half listening to the non-stop demos being conducted too)….




Sbuffet_Life's Little Treasure


(After staring at this at home, I can’t help but add the brown and green ribbon from my stash and removed a tag to create a more balanced page, talk about being OC ;o)




Sbuffet_Loving Sisters Forever


(Another tweak here by adding “forever” chipboard,  pink vines, Prima blings and ribbons…it seemed incomplete without other pps so I got itchy and added those at home hahaha)






The other pages are reserved for the small album I’m still making for our Boracay Trip last Christmas Holidays.   The 10×10 page was a gift to a friend/officemate that I already gave.  I’ll borrow it to take a shot so I can share it with you.


Whew, even if the pages I made have the same style (hahaha….shoot me for being honest even if it’s not that obvious until I opened my mouth, oh yeah?!)….and even if I was so sad to part ways with my scraps and unused papers/embellishments 😀 (no take home, you see) and regret not to have taken my free 15-min massage,  I’m still uber happy and proud!  I went home with a big grin, a backache, stiff shoulders,  beautiful scrapbook pages and  yummy prizes too!  I can’t wait for the next one!
