I joined an 8 week challenge at ScrapLove. This week's challenge is to use three office supplies in your layout. I used pages from my weekly planner, paper clips and bubble wrap. I used the bubble wrap to stamp dots on chipboard. My initial plans of using a blank receipt and a CD case didn't push through though. Anyway, I was happy with the results of my layout. I've been wanting to use the Crate Carnival collection for months and this is the perfect timing! I'm also happy that I'm digging through my old stash again!
Title: Turning Three
other matls used: Crate Carnival collection, 7Gypsies rub ons and stickers, BasicGrey chipboard alphas, acrylic paint, American Crafts letter rub ons, brads, Uniball Signo and Sakura pens, Li'l Davis glitter rub ons (courtesy of Scrapbukan)

Ethan, 3 months from now you'll be turning 3 years old. I could still vividly remember how we've spent your 2nd bday so I couldn't digest the fact that you are growing a year old again. The changes are inevitable, even though I try not to think about it, you're growing up - my BABY'S growing up! If only I could tell time to slow down ...

I'd say that art is a very subjective thing, what may look good to one may not look good to another. That's what I noticed while we were doing this exercise. To each his own ika nga.
Anyway, our lecturer taught us about composition in the afternoon. This is actually my favorite topic in photography! I was already excited to shoot outdoors if only ... ok I won't mention it here ... my classmates would know what I was about to say hehehe.
Note: All photos posted here and at the two previous posts are untouched by photoshop. : )

Last week we had an assignment on our photography class. We have to practice our shutter speed exercises as well as defocusing the background. We have to choose the best from our photos and bring it the next Sunday.

camera panning - I'm still not successful in trying to make the subject clear.

I was reading my mail from an online scrapbook site and was already so thrilled when I read an alert from my inbox that an e-mail from Daisy Bucket Designs has arrived. I was shaking in excitement as I open the mail. And here's the bestest news ever (if there's such a word as bestest hehehe)
