What I've been doing the past weeks ...

The past weeks have been very busy for Jeff and I. Jeff's doing a lot of work in the PC that I couldn't keep up with the number of e-mails I've been receiving. Ethan had fever for three days. After that he had cough, good thing it didn't really progress. He's very much okay now - back to bruises and wounds again! I, on the otherhand, had been busy doing some layouts for NSD, Scrapbukan, the Scrapfest and my client. I've had my most terrible migraines the past days too .. too terrible to tolerate. I wanted to die (seriously) even for a moment, if only it'll be gone after I wake up again. I tried scrapping but I really couldn't finish a lot.

I have not been true to my promise of making atleast 3 layouts a week. Instead, I can only make atleast one a week. Good enough, I guess, than nothing.

I'm sharing with you the ones I was able to finish.

Title: All Boy
This is more of an experiment actually. I was applying paint anywhere that I ended up messing up the page hehehe.

Materials used: Urban Lily - Urban Boy (Heath, Max, Seth and Romeo), Bazzill cs, buttons, Making Memories paint, metal photo corner, Colorbox ink and Zig Writer pen

Title: Love U 2
This is my last Fancy Pants layout for Scrapbukan.

Materials used: Fancy Pants Floral Chic (Heartthrob) (courtesy of Scrapbukan), cardstock, FP Biggest Board (Photo Fun and Flourishes), Scenic Route letter chipborad (letter
"u"), acrylic paint, bling, Zig Writer pen

Title: Zleeping @ the Zoo
I must admit this layout didn't come out as easy. I was trying to minimize the use of other materials other than those part of my Tinkering Ink kit from Scrapbukan. I only used one patterned paper and added mulberry paper as mat for the photo. What I love about this layout though was the fact that I was able to use my extra "z's" from different chipboard and plastic letters! Finally too, I have maximized the use of my Sakura Souffle neon green pen! I'm enjoying doodling sooo much!
Materials used: Tinkering Ink Westminster - Urban Grass, TI Monogram Letters, Westminster Finery (tag), American Crafts Typehouse plastic punctuation (@), Heidi Swapp plastic letters (Leeping and z's) - courtesy of Scrapbukan, Li'l Davis letter chipboard (Z), Scenic Route letter chipboard (z), Sakura Souffle pen - neon green, Sakura Gellroll pen - brown, mulberry paper, Sizzix Ransom Dies (the), brown acrylic pen
Title: No!

If there's one layout I'm truly proud of, this must be it. This layout was featured on NSD at Two Peas in a Bucket. Moreso, this LO emanates my style as a scrapper!

Materials used: Scenic Route White Line Background cardstock, SR Office Die cut arrows,SR letter chipboard, BasicGrey Scarlet's Letter (Pious and Revelation) and Flourishes rub ons, 7Gypsies paper and stickers (toddler), red cardstock, metal photo corners, hinges, Diamond glaze, buttons, Colorbox ink and Zig Writer pen

Pia! Wow, that's why pala we haven't heard from you in a while! Busy girl!

Aww, so sorry to hear Ethan got sick. Hope he's okay now. I told Jeff nung Scrapfest bilib nga ako ang dali makidnap ng mga grandparents ang anak nyo. Kasi anak ko would never allow it. Hehe.

Sis, as always, ang gorgeous naman ng layouts mo! Wow, talaga, eto na ba talaga ang style mo?? Na-excite naman ako kasi mala-collage. Hehe.

Na-post ko na yung Cherry Arte layout ko sa blog ko. Not so nice naman, sus, kaka-pressure ba naman si Maybs ang seatmate ko! Hehe.

See you soon! Mwah!

Hi Nina!

Salamat for taking the time to read that long post.

Ethan's ok na, siyempre ako ang sinipon ng sobra at di siya. Better na din yun. : D

Madali ko talaga siya nabibigay sa mommy ko kasi napapakain, napapaliguan at lahat lahat na nun si Ethan hehehe. Kahit sa inlaws ko, madaling sumama si Ethan hehehe.

Thanks for appreciating my LOs! Actually yung All Boy at yung No! nga yung tingin ko ay VERY MYSELF! hahaha ... magulo, makulay at maraming kung anong anik anik! O, di ba ako yun?! hehehe

I'll post my Cherry Arte LO and SHE LOs soon. UY, maganda naman yung sayo ha. Ikaw talaga!

See you! Mwah!

I should make that commitment to finish at least ONE LO a week. Hmm, will try that one nga... ;) Thanks for the idea!

They say lots of hugs can cure migraines... :) I have had terrible ones din kasi in the past - tipong gusto ko nang dukutin ang mga mata ko sa sakit, hehe!

Good to hear Ethan's back to his regular self. Hirap talaga pag may sakit ang bata... di ka mapakali.

Gotta love those LOs. You keep getting better!
