Week 45: Prima November Newsletter



I’m so happy to announce that one of my pages is featured in the current Prima Newsletter (under Reader’s Find).   

Did this during Ria’s Birthday celebration…got the mojo running because of the girls, of course!  Thanks to Iris and Liza  for some stuff they shared that I used here.

To quote what Prima wrote: 

We are delighted to show you a gorgeous layout by one of our readers! Emma Fronda from

the Philippines sent us this beautiful layout titled, “Blessing”, that is filled with sweet

 little touches. We love the contrast in colors, the amazing texture displayed, the variety of

techniques used, and the placement of the elements to create sweeping movement across

the page. It is simply stunning, Emma!




Everything is Prima except for the Technique Tuesday’s stamp and Bazzill key chipboard.

That’s my kikay Alexa when she was trying on her new shirt I bought, I just grabbed the camera and there she went with girlie poses without any prompting.    I have several  photos  from the “shoot” waiting to be scrapped and I’m so excited to use them with this overwhelming inspiration.

Thanks Sharon and Prima!


Week 44: My Little Diva



My youngest girl, Alexa,  is so girlie girl.  She loves putting on my lipgloss, pretends to put the face powder and blush on,  loves to pretend cooking or having her hair done, insists on putting on her favorite dresses, twirls when she wears her favorite princess skirt…oh I can go on forever with the girlie stuff she loves and does.  So different from her Ate (older sister), actually.    As she turned 2 last year, she had already a fixation on nail polish!  She loves it!  Every time she sees me, my yayas  (nanny) or my sisters-in-law put on theirs, she insists on putting  some on her finger/toe nails too!  She would bawl over if we refuse (of course I refuse often because she’s still a baby and nail polish is not for small kids, right?!).  But one day, I saw all her nails painted with dark pink courtesy of my yaya who worked for a salon before…I gasped but was also amused!  She really loved it and refused to remove the polish…what can I do?!? I just let it be for a while and made the most of it by taking pictures ;o)…yup, a little diva she is!

I created my take on XOXO November Challenge using this photo of her cute little feet.

Week 43: Soar


I dread the day when it’s time to let my kids spread their wings and fly. I know I have to. One day. But for now, I will just let them dream big dreams.

May they have the courage and determination to pursue and fulfill them…and may God grant us (their parents) strength and wisdom to know when to still hold on and when to let go and let them soar…


Journal: Dream big dreams…Be brave and fly…Soar (title)

Materials Used: Everything Prima except for the Pink ruffled ribbon I got locally.
