Saturday Crop Night

After almost a month of no househelp, I wasn't able to scrap a layout. It was so frustrating since I needed to finish my layouts for Scrapbukan and Daisy Bucket. Last Saturday was my first time to finally scrap again after the long hiatus! Believe me it wasn't easy, it was like I'm a newbie in scrapping!

These are some of the layouts I finished during the crop night at Ria's house last Saturday (read more about our crop night in her blog). I truly enjoyed my stay ... if only we can do this more often. Part of me wanted to go home that night because I missed my baby, Ethan, yet part of me too wanted to stay because this rarely happens. Besides, I wasn't sure if I can still scrap at home.

Technically I finished 5 layouts - 2 are for Arlene (our birthday gifts for her) and 3 are personal ones. I only managed to ask Arlene to leave me this layout I made for her daughter, Reese since I promised her I will submit it to the Daisy Bucket gallery. I can't post the LO I made for Scrapbukan yet until Sahrie posts it on her site.

I'm not so happy with this layout but my only compensation is that I finally was able to scrap this picture of Ethan taken last Christmas!

This one is my favorite. The title is actually from the movie, Madagascar. I couldn't help but use that on this LO since I remember the penguins kept on saying those lines, "Just smile and wave boys, smile and wave!"

Special thanks to Liza for cutting the waves!

Thanks Ria, Arlene, Iris, Bjay, Kitkat, Joanne, Liza and April for that memorable night! I'm not sure if I can still attend the next ones ... will surely be missing a lot!

Pia! I really love your handwriting..can you make a complete alpha then pagawa natin into stamp!

Thanks Geng! Your comment really made me smile.

Actually, I was supposed to use the AL alpha stamp but the letters are quite big for my page so I decided to "copy" the letters hehehe. I think I'd like to this more often.

LOVE THIS! hehehe...type ko rin kasi yung Madagascar (kahit na Surf's Up ito) kasi paulit-ulit pinanonood ng anak ko. Kanta sya ng kanta, "i like to no-pet, no-pet..." (yung kanta sa ending...gets mo ang tune?) hahaha...kelangan kong kopyahin itong ideang ito...wahhaha!

Cool job, kapatid!
