So Girly!

Here's a LO I made of me and my girls while trying to use up my stash!

Title: So Girly

Journaling: Okay, okay...I guess I'll have to admit that if my girls seem to care too much over how they look, they got that from me. But I love that we're all girly-girls and they say when they grow up they want to be just like me! Photo Dec 30 '08.

Materials: WRMK papers; Daisy Ds Rub-ons; American Crafts thickers; Prima chipboard; Creative Imaginations lace paper; American Crafts pen; Clearsnap ink; Uniball Signo pen;

Scrap Buffet LOs

We had a blast last Saturday when Studio Azul and Pinoy Scrapbookers, with help from Visual Creations, conducted the first-ever Scrap Buffet! It's hard to imagine that something like this was even possible but I guess it only takes a Tin Yao to conjure up this event.

We literally had a choice of papers, cardstock and embellishments to create our LOs and could make as many as we could within the alloted time. I'm so glad I decided to sign up for the Wait List 3 days before the event and made it in by some stroke of luck...or was it Divine Providence?

I so enjoyed playing with the Bam Pop papers that I never had the courage to buy because it wasn't totally me. Here are the 6 LOs I made -- some more complete than others...most still needing journaling...I will post the final LOs once they're done, sooner than later, I hope.

Home is Family

Here's a new LO still using the Victoria's Street line from Nikki Sivils. I had a pic of Bianca laying on a couch and I asked her why she loved our house and this is what she said. At first, it didn't make sense to me, but then I realized that to her it's so simple, her home is where her family is...straight from the mouths of babes!

Title: Home is Family
Materials: Patterned Paper, Stamp and Flag - Nikki Sivils; Sticker and Die-cut - Daisy Ds; Felt & Vinyl Alpha - American Crafts; Tiny Alpha & Paint- Making Memories; Pen - Zig; Ink - Tsukineko; Misc ribbon

Scrappin Kids Challenge #18: Moments

Here's my take on this month's challenge at Scrappin Kids:

Vacation or an outing is always fun for the kids
However, there are some moments that are not the most pleasant
Document the real story behind the photos that captures
your kid's personality right at that moment
Do include journalling as well

Title: Not So Happy Princess

Journaling: Celebrating Halloween in Disneyland was not what Bianca expected it to be. In stead of happy, colorful characters, she saw dar and scary creatures, esp. at night. While waiting for dinner to be served, mommy, Luis and Nadya stepped out to see the fireworks, leaving Bianca and Daddy at the table. She was too scared to go out again but didn't want to be left behind so she just bawled her eyes out until we all got back in time for a spooky Halloween inspired dinner. Bianca, Oct. 31, 2008

Materials: Patterned Papers - Prima, Cosmo Cricket, Daisy Bucket; Journaling Paper - Fancy Pants; Heart Sticker - Creative Imaginations; Direcut Arrow - Scenic Route; Ink - Clearsnap; Pen - Zig; Fabric Sticker - AMM; Bling word - Heidi Swapp; Snapshot Brush Frame
