There was an exciting challenge that happened in our local scrapbook group weeks ago that was so stressful but super fun ;o)  It was a chain-scraplift (or round robin as others would call it) wherein scrapbookers would group together and decide on the sequence or order of each scrapper.  A  lay-out will be passed to a person which she would scaplift.   Each scrapper is given, at most, 3-days to finish the lay-out.  After she’s done, she would pass her finished lay-out (passing of  the original layout is a no-no)  to the next in line.   It was doubly stressful and fun because we were divided into 2 groups (of 15 ladies each), whoever finishes first would win!  I was the 13th (lucky number, yeah!)  and got to scraplift the page done by no other than the “master” (as we fondly call her), the Iris Babao-Uy

This was my finished layout, using my friend’s (Arlene’s) photos with her 3rd child.


Materials Used:  Crate paper, K& Co and WeRM keepers.

To make it easy for me and finish faster that my usual pace, I just copy the entire look of Iris’ page—placement of the papers and most of the embellishments.  You can see her take here.

We were leading  but the other group was so aggressive and competitive (as in, finishing their page in the wee hours), they were able to catch up and win by just a few hours!   Boo-hoo!  Anyways, it was still fun and fulfilling!  Can’t wait to have another round!


Sign here please!


One of the “must haves” in going to Disneyland is to have an autograph book.   Aside from the photo-op you do with the Disney characters, a great souvenir is to have their autograph signatures.  Gaby brought this perfect booklet for it:

Gaby was able to have these signatures:

…from Daisy Duck, Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Belle (Beauty & the Beast), Pluto…

… White Rabbit, Stitch, Chip & Dale (Chipmunks)…

…Goofy and of course, Mickey!

And here’s a lay-out I made to record the characters’ autograph signing…


How about you?  Did you do this when you were in Disney?

Lion King


A  “Must-See”  when you go to any Disney Park.  The production is just breathtaking even if it’s a short one, of course, compared to the real and actual Broadway musical play.   We were glad that somebody told us not to miss it.   Even though I got blurred photos, I need to scrap them just so I can relive the experience.


Materials Used: Papers-K&CO; Diecut stickers-BG; chipboard-AC & Buzz&Bloom; Others-MM paint, Ranger’s emboss powder,AL & local buttons and paper twill.

More HK Disney pages in the coming weeks, promise (indulge me please and don’t get fed up with them teehee!)



Gaby  is so lucky to have travelled to some famous destinations here and in Asia.   I’m so proud of her because she’s such a pro–no tantrums, easy to please (most of the time hahaha), adventurous and helpful.   I pray that God will give her more opportunities to  be able to see and explore the world, wander around exotic places and learn different cultures.   That would be  bliss!

 Here’s a lay-out with her photos in Manila and HK airports taken last year!  


I used mostly the August products of CHERRY NEST .  Do check  them  out for more inspiration!

September XOXO Challenge


It’s the start of the month and we have another challenge over at XOXO.   The lipstick chicks are asked to create a layout inspired by our blog or our favorite blog.  I was so inspired with the new look of my blog, so this is what I did:



The new look of my blog is such a vibrant, colorful and happy one, just like my Alexa.  Look at her smile.  So full of positivity.  May she continue to be full of joy, bringing a little ray of sunshine to everyone.

Do visit XOXO to check the other chicks’ work of art.  Hope you’ll be inspired to scraplift any of our creations and join in this month’s challenge.  


A New Look…




Do you like what you see?  Was able to tinker the features in WordPress during the long break and decided to change the look of my blog.  This is nicer, more vibrant, fun,  just like me, don’t you agree?  I’m still trying to find out how to change the header with the specified size.  Hope I can do it successfully soon.  In the meantime, I love how this looks and I might leave it as is, let’s see.

Speaking of new look, XOXO has also been re-vamped with a new sexy, foxy look.  Fit for the lipstick chicks like us.    Want to be our October guest designer?  Visit XOXO now to know how.
