April 2008 Scrapbytes is here!

This month I am celebrating my first year anniversary as editor of Scrapbytes. Can't believe I made it this far. It was supposed to be a temporary thing, just until Mia Castrillo was back up on her feet again after giving birth (last Oct 2007).

But God had other plans, more for Mia than for me, as her whole family moved to Cagayan De Oro in June 2007 so I got stuck (for lack of a better term) with this job.

Check out the April 2008 issue here where you will see these previously unseen LOs of mine:
