"Louie", that's the name of the rabbit Ethan played during their Literary Presentation, "Rosie's Adventure". Ethan was quite shy when the program started, something unusual with his personality! During the dance numbers, he would be looking at his classmates from left and right as if he doesn't know the steps! He's really  a funny boy!

An update on the layouts I made for the past two months - well, I couldn't keep up! I was expecting to make atleast 10 a month but I'm always stumped. Here's hoping for more layouts by March.

Sleeping Beauty

I tried squeezing in six photos in one spread or in one 12"x12" layout but really couldn't figure out how so I ended up making two layouts instead. These layouts are far different from what I usually make. Notice the flowers and lace? It's good to use them once in awhile, right?


title: Sleeping Beauty
materials used: patterned papers, chipboard, stickers - BasicGrey; journaling block - Fancy Pants; rub ons - Daisy Bucket


title: Once Upon A Time
materials used: cardstock - Bazzill, DCWV; patterned papers - Basicgrey, Cosmo Cricket; flowers - Prima; chipboard - Cosmo Cricket; brads - WRMK; pin; lace - Prima; ink - Versamark

Thanks again to my dear friend, April for the BasicGrey papers and embellishments I used in these layouts!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Any plans for today? Yesterday, we already had our Valentine Family Day via the 16th Philippine Hot Air Balloon Festival at Clark, Pampanga. It was a fun road trip and even though we were tired from the walking and the heat of the sun, we still had fun. Perhaps next year, we need to be a little earlier and maybe we should watch on the first day instead to avoid the crowd.

Anyway since it's V Day, I'm sharing here a layout I made for my one and only ....





The pictures were taken on a photo booth when we attended a party. Though the resolution of the pictures are not as good, I wanted to scrap them anyway. I'm lucky to find these papers from Shabby Green Door. I've had these for almost two years now including these rub ons which are all perfect for the "Cowboy" theme of this layout.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Almost Summer

Notice the sudden change of weather? It must be the start of summer! And because of that weather change, I'm having asthma attack ... oh well! It's worse at night time when I'm already lying in bed. It's like there's an orchestra in the house ... I'll cough, followed by Ethan then Jeff hehehe. 

Speaking of summer, here's a layout I made about Ethan's first summer out of town trip. It was his first time in the beach although we didn't let him swim yet.


It took more than three hours to get to Subic coming from Cavite and I was already worried about the long trip for Ethan because he was only 5 months old. But we survived it. Jeff and I also had our first try in parasailing although we didn't bring our camera in the boat so there weren't any pictures to show.

materials used: cardstock - Bazzill; patterned papers - Lily Bee (thanks Iris!), My Little Shoebox, Imaginisce, Fancy Pants; buttons; ribbons; stickers - Pink Paislee, American Crafts, Shabby Green Door, 7 Gypsies; pen - Sakura

Senior Kinder

Soon Ethan will be graduating from Senior Kinder. How fast time flies. Three years ago, we were just attending our new parents' orientation. Now, we are all familiar with the school, the administrators, teachers and auxiliary staff. We love Rosemont much as we love all the people we have met along the way including co-parents whom we have become close friends.

I'm sharing with you a layout of Ethan's 1st day in Senior Kinder. I created this layout last year but didn't get to post it here. I included a pencil which Ethan actually used this schoolyear.


title: Senior Kinder
materials used: patterned papers - Crate, October Afternoon, Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cricket; stickers - American Crafts, Heidi Swapp, Scenic Route; pen; Ethan's own school pencil

The pictures include the classroom of Ethan (I took a picture of the their door), the class list, Ethan with his new class adviser and of course Ethan with his new school bag. I'm glad I took all of these little details that day.

Here's another layout using the souvenir photo taken during Rosemont's Father's Day. We really enjoyed this year's Father's Day because Ethan and Jeff got to play golf and pass the baton together! Ethan is also proud that Daddy took the extra effort to dance during the Cheerdancing Competition.

materials used: patterned papers - Bella Boulevard, Echo park, Scenic Route, Daisy Bucket; chipboard - Bella Boulevard; rub ons - Daisy Bucket; mists - Tattered Angels; baker's twine - Shabby Green Door; ribbon - Ki Memories

Finally a New Layout!

It feels good to be back on posting at my blog. As you all know by now, I'm pregnant with our second child and with no househelp for more than a month and a difficult pregnancy, blogging and scrapping took a backseat for awhile. I managed to make a few layouts during the first month of the year unfortunately my camera's kit lens is no longer working so I wasn't able to take pictures of them.

Anyway, I'm happy that Arlene, a friend of my mine lent me her kit lens so now I got to take pics of my layouts! Yipee! Not only that, my friends, April, Arlene and Ria gave me some papers and embellishments - double yipee for me!!! It's really nice to have very generous friends! I also got my DT kit from Lasting Impression - yummy papers from October Afternoon! I'll be working on my DT layout and share it soon!

Now, here's a layout I've just finished. My other layouts would be posted on the following days.


Layout title: Close Encounter with a Tiger
supplies used: patterned papers - Studio Calico, Sassafras Lass, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye; stickers - Echo Park, K&Co., Scenic Route; ribbon - Fancy Pants; mists - Memories Mists; ink - Versamark; others - pen, rafia, buttons

By the way, thanks so much for all those who signed up for mine and Ria's class! We'll see you on March 19 at Lasting Impression!
