Cowgirl Boots

Scrapbytes is finally up! Check out the new issue here.

I'm really glad Mia Castrillo is back! She took over Designer Spotlight and I must really say she's the right person for this job.

Anyway, here's a layout I made for the Same Products, 5 Ways article.

When I got these papers, I asked myself, "Is is this some kind of a punishment or what?!" Honestly, I couldn't think of anything to make from these papers. Not that they aren't nice but this isn't my style - vintage, shabby. Just then I thought of these photos taken by Jeff during Reese's photo shoot. I have wanted to scrap these photos and yes I think they're perfect (the photos I mean, not my layout hehehe!)

Now, back to bold and bright colored papers ... and I'm hoping I won't encounter any papers of this kind at the moment hehehe : )

Materials used: Patterned Paper - K & Co Urban Rhapsody, We R Memory Keepers metal embellishments and ribbons, American Crafts alpha rub ons, fabric flowers, pen, Editing software: Abobe Photoshop CS

I am fibers!

Found this quiz at Ria's blog so I went to try it. Here's what the result says:

You are fibers!

Fun and crazy at times. You are a warm fuzzy kind of person. You run around getting things done but still find time for fun! You have so many diverse interests that it is often hard to pin you down to any one thing. People love your friendly attitude and carefree ways. You often brighten other people's days. But Fibers Beware - Sometimes people don't take you seriously because of your happy-go-lucky ways. Sometimes you find yourself feeling left out from decision making that could directly affect you. Even though you like to be happy and cheerful, make sure others know that you can also be serious and in tune with reality.

I'm not so sure about the results though ... am I really fibers? Was thinking if there are buttons on the choices? ; ) Kidding aside, I know myself to be a fun loving person. I must admit people get surprised when I am serious or if I get mad, as if I'm not capable of such hehehe! Truth is I'm kinda impatient and if I'm saddened by a certain thing or an event in my life, I can get so depressed. I can spend days thinking about it and punishing myself. Bad no? But that's about the other side of me.

Try this quiz and find out what scrapbooking item you are.


It's the most wonderful time of the year ...

... I'm actually singing those lines hehehe. Come to think of it, it's already September 1 week from now, you know, the "ber" months are here again. The Philippines is known to have the longest and if I may say the merriest Christmas in the world, Christmas officially begins by September!

This is the most awaited event in the family, not even our own birthdays I guess : ) So, to start this merry season in our blog, I'll share with you Daisy Bucket's Merry Wishes Collection.

Unwrap the gift and you're in for a surprise!

Maybe some dreams can wait ...

Maybe some dreams can wait ... maybe, maybe not ...

I used to dream that I'd make it to graduate school but that dream has to take a back seat when I married and had a child. No regrets though. Then I thought, I'd like to go to culinary school, only when we are financially ready for it ...

Then I had this dream, I thought I want it for myself. It may not mean anything to others though. But like some of my dreams, this has to take a back seat too ... for the meantime? I don't know. Maybe.

My only fear is that some dreams may be gone for good ...

Anyway, enough of that. I'll leave you with a layout I made months ago ...

I was inspired to make this layout after seeing a similar one at two peas. I thought I can make a layout just like that using these two I.D. pictures. I've been wanting to scrap these; it's such a waste not to, right? I love how this turned out.

materials used: Bam Pop, Junkitz, BasicGrey alpha stickers, American Crafts felt, embroidery floss, buttons, Uniball Signo pen, Zig Writer pen
