I just wish whoever took it (imagine having the gall to unzip my purse!) uses the money for something worthwhile. I'm just thankful that was how it happened because, on hindsight, Luis was with me at the time, and at least he was unaware of what had happened. It could have been worse. It was a female thief, for sure, because I would have noticed if there was a guy searching beside me thru the racks and piles of clothes at Plains n Prints Galleria.
So now with my SIM blocked, my temporary pre-paid number and my old phone, I'm trying to put my phone book together. This one is going to be tougher and will take a while. At least now all hubby needs to decide on is which particular model to get me for my birthday next month!
On to the good news...
I open my Inbox this morning to find an email from Absolument Scrap inviting me to be part of their International DT!
Now, if the Eiffel Tower and the Champs Elysee aren't enough reasons for me to go to France, this sure is! Absolument Scrap is a French company that started out with rubber stamps, but is now getting into papers and other embellishments. Woo hoo! Time to brush up on my French!
What a great ending to an otherwise depressing week. I was so busy with Luis' exams, Poveda mommy duties, cake decorating and Working Mom projects that I wasn't able to scrap a single page! Have to make-up for it big-time...after I upload the September issue of Scrapbytes, that is.

The photos were taken during one of my photography classes last month. They didn't have a "model" for the portrait session so they asked my to sit under the hot sun and smile for our class of 40+ students.
At least now I have some decent solo pics, so it was worth it, after all!

Maybe next time I'll use a pre-printed transparency because the hardest part was leaving the "white space" alone, so I ended up painting the edges to define them, stamping along the bottom and adding flowers.

This photo of Bianca was taken at Dreamworld in Australia last Oct 2006. There was a huge play area with a lot of balls, but at that time, there were too many big kids inside that we took Bianca out for fear that she might get hurt.
Unlike in Manila where you can send in the nannies to watch the kids inside the playground, only kids are allowed inside here.
Poor Bianca was peeking through the net the whole time wondering why she couldn't join in on the fun.
Title: Let Me In
Journaling: Bianca wanted to play in the ball play area in Dreamworld but there were too many big kids, so she had to watch from outside.
Materials: Collage Press Citrus pps, DCWV black cs, mesh, Making Memories foam stamp and acrylic paints, Autumn Leaves, Leave Memories & Lil Davis stamps, Prima flowers, Jo-ann chipboard & metal phrase, Ancient Page & Versacolor inks, Zig pen, misc bling, rickrack & fibers

I've had these Hero Arts lace stamps for the longest time but wasn't sure how to use them. This time I stamped around the black cs with whit ink to create a border and heat embossed with Distress Powder in Antique Linen.
