Amazing Race - Week 1

I joined the Amazing Race 2009 Competition at Mystical Scrapbooks. The last time I joined something like this was almost 2 years ago. I never even get to finish that one hehehe. Okay, so now here I go again, thinking perhaps I can make it through the 6 weeks of competition ... if I won't be voted out that is hehehe.

Truth is, I really want my scrapping mojo back ... it literally went away to a place I don't know hahaha! I wanted to squeeze in a layout atleast a week and make this month productive. Btw, did I mention, Ethan's summer vacation officially started last Saturday? Hurray for that hehehe. I need a separate post for Ethan's Culminating Activity in their school though.

Anyway, back to the competition. Our first destination is the United States of America. We landed in New York City and had a party in Manhattan just like the girls from Sex & The City! We were asked to make a layout with theme of our girl friends. We should be having fun on the photos (and on the layout, of course!) and we should use my "favorite color "... that is pink! Pink? Ako? Waah!!!

Well, napasubo ako with that pink ... Here's my take on the challenge.



Nakita nyo yung pink? Dami no? hahaha.

Thanks to my idol, Au Lim for the photos!

Materials used:
patterned papers: BasicGrey Scarlet Letter, Rouge de Garance, Ki Memories Pop Culture, Scenic Route
chipboard: Chatterbox, Ki Memories
others: pen, buttons, brads

journaling:
I'm not the type of person who loves to wear costumes but when we had our "Christmas" Madscrappers' Party, it was time to let loose!

Where else could I be this silly? With the company of my friends, of course!

I know that even if we had to go the extra mile to look our best that day, it was all worth it! We've had fun and I wouldn't trade anything for that!

I'd like to invite you to the gallery and check out the other beautiful entries, including layouts from my friends, Donna and Issa - they're also part of this contest.

It really feels liberating to be able to scrap again. I really enjoyed making this layout because I get to use my old papers from BG and Rouge de Garance that has been with me for almost 2 years already hehehe. And of course, I get to use bright colors again!

I'm checking my stuff and I'm so happy that I have few papers already! Yipee!!!!!!!! I haven't shopped for the past months and I don't even have the latest papers and embellishments - this is actually a feat!

Hi, kapatid! So nice to see you scrapping again. Miss your gorgeous works.

Haha. Didn't realize you had trouble with pink. Ganun ba talaga pag lalaki ang anak? Hehe.

At hindi lang sa ganda ng layout ako na-impress ha. Yung nagagamit mo pati old stash mo! Yun ang bilib ako! Paturo naman. =)
