Week 2: Out with the Old



I’m so happy that I went beyond my goal on the scrapbooking pages I’ve set to finish last year.  I just planned to do at least 1 page a week but I’ve done 70++ 12×12 pages and an 8×8 Boracay album.  I noticed that with the lay-outs I’ve done,  I have yet to share a handful of them.  So here they are:

For 2010, I’m still going to be conservative and stick to my once-a-week goal. But, this time, I want to do more mini albums and try altering some things. How about you? What’s your scrapbooking goal this year?


Week 1: HERO


Last Tuesday, January 5,  I had an opportunity to meet and have a photo-op with a hero who changed the lives of so many… Mr. Efren Penaflorida, the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year.   He’s so charming and very accommodating!  Konting ligo na lang para na syang si Papa P.  (Piolo Pascual)…to which one of my officemates vehemently disagreed!    But still, I stand on my conviction because it’s his heart, his mission and what he has done that makes him cute and handsome like Piolo!   May he touch more lives, encourage more youth to value education and inspire a lot to do something good!

Project 365? How about Project 52 instead…


What is Project 365 anyway? Browsed through the net and found this description from

“The 365 project aims to collect photos documenting 1 year of your life. We want to build a picture of the little day to day things that make your life so special and unique. Everyone can take part and join in! All you need is a camera. “

Some of my friends are doing Project 365. But I don’t think I can do it everyday so instead, I’ll make it Project 52. I don’t intend to have photos only (I might still forget to take some shots, you know) so I’ll twist it a bit and make sure it’s a weekly blog entry, or scrapbook layout/s or both! It’ll make me diligent in updating this blog *cross fingers* and to push me to finish at least one lay-out a week!

So, good luck to me! I encourage you to start the same project too. It’s not yet too late! It’ll make us more appreciative of what life brings us this 2010…good or bad…big or small!
