Now I can share my layouts ...

I was the Discovery Paper Designer for the Month of August at Scrapstreet. Every month, they feature one designer and I was lucky to be chosen!
I love what Lindsey of Scrapstreet wrote about me. I have never even thought of those ... when people ask me to describe my scrapbooking style, I will just tell them that I love bold and bright colors. But I realy couldn't explain things further. When I read her intro, I was amazed as to how she decribed my scrapping style. She really did hit it!!! As what I've told her, that introduction is something I will forever cherish! Here's what she said:
Each month a new and fabulous paper scrapper is featured here in Discovery Drive. This month, we spotlight Pia Salem-Lopez. Pia is a ball of energy on and off of her layouts – the word that comes to mind while flipping through her scrapbooks is BOLD…and beautiful! Whether it’s her color choice, choice of medium, gorgeous photos or strong shape, Pia’s design just jumps right off the page! Personality and passion, Pia’s got a flair for this art!

As part of the feature article, these three layouts along with my "Because I Love You" layout were posted as well and as agreed I wasn't allowed to post those layouts till September. So, now that it's already September I'm so excited to share them here in our blog.

Title: "Mahal Kita Mom"
(translation – “Mahal Kita” means “I Love You” in our language).
One night, as I was carrying Ethan, he kept on playing with my hair. Peeved as I was, I asked him to stop. He then held me on the cheeks, turned my head towards his face … and said, “MAHAL KITA MOM.” This was the first time I heard this from him. I was stunned … and could only reply, “MAHAL DIN KITA ETHAN,” as I hug him. Truly, motherhood could be very rewarding!

Title: Dad

Journaling: A Dad is a person who is loving and kind, And often he knows what you have on your mind. He’s someone who listens, suggests and defends. A dad can be one of your very best friends! He’s proud of your triumphs, But when things go wrong, A dad can be patient and helpful and strong. In all that you do, a dad’s love plays a part. There’s always a place for him deep in your heart. And each year that passes, you’re even more glad, more grateful and proud just to call him your dad! Thank you, Dad … For listening and caring, for giving and sharing, But especially, for just being you! - Author unknown
