Scrap Tiffany Week 5

For my last week as Guest DT for Scrap Tiffany's challenge blog, the theme is "Star", as in "Who is the star in my life?"

Having 3 kids, this is a very difficult question for me to answer, since each of my kids is a star in a different way. But since Bianca is celebrating her 4th birthday this week, I decided to do a LO of her.

It was refreshing to do a romantic LO after all the "punchy (I wish!)" LO's I've been doing recently. I even got to use my glimmer mists!

Title: Wish Upon A Star

Journaling: Bianca's 4th Birthday Wish List
- a gold fish or three
- in a fish tank
- with fish food
- a Tinkerbell party
- a Little Einsteins party in school

Materials: Basic Grey patterned papers, Rusty Pickle chipboard star, Pink Paislee and Making Memories alpha stickers, Tim Holtz Distress Stickles and Journal ticket, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Heidi Swapp mask, American Crafts pen, Clearsnap ink

Productive Week-end

Had a very productive week-end and finished 5 LOs (including For Now, below). Here are 3 of them (one was picked for publication before I could post it here...yehey for me!). 082809 - Oops, had to take another LO down as it was picked up too... :)

Title: Oh Happy Day!
Journaling: Nadya had a great time when we celebrated her 7th birthday at Active Fun with a few friends from school.
Materials: Bazzill cardstock, Nikki Sivils pps and corduroy brads, American Crafts Thickers, Clearsnap ink, Zig pen, Fiskars border punch

Title: Recital Day
Journaling: This is the day Nadya and Bianca have been working so hard for all summer -- the one day they are allowed to wear Mommy's real make-up! 052409
Materials: Bazzill and DCWV cs, Glitz pps, journal sticker and rub-ons, Heidi Swapp chipboard alpha, American Crafts pen, misc bling

Scrap Tiffany Week 4: For Now

Here's my take on this week's challenge at Scrap Tiffany about TIME -- the thing we have very little of.

Title: For Now

Journaling: For now, it's ok that I barely have any time for myself, that most of my waking hours are filled by things to do for you and with you, that my world revolves around you. One day soon, you won't be needing me as much -- then I can scrap the whole day, go shopping, get a massage, a facial, manicure, pedicure, get my hair colored and cut or even get some sleep. But for now, my time is your time and that's ok...for now. 082309

Materials: Bazzill cs, Nikki Sivils pps, Daisy Ds die-cuts, Making Memories tag, Creative Imaginations brad, American Crafts Thickers, Clearsnap ink, Zig pen, clock face downloaded from internet

Try out the challenge and you might just win a kit from Scrap Tiffany!

Scrap Tiffany Week 3

Sorry for the delayed post. For my 3rd week as Guest Designer at Scrap Tiffany, the challenge was to make a LO about your "Bucket List" -- you know, the things you want to do before you "kick the bucket".

Title: Viva Espana

Journaling: Funny how, being a list person, I have a list for everything, but I don't have a bucket list. But there is one place that I have always wanted to visit that has eluded me thus far -- SPAIN! I'm not even sure of what there is to see or do there, I just know I want to go there. Could it be because the Philippines was colonized for 300 years? Or because it was my 1st language? Whatever! I just wanna go there!

It's not too late to join in on the fun so head on over to Scrap Tiffany now! Happy Weekend everyone!

Guest DT for MyStamp Box

It was so nice of Tiffany from MyStamp Box to offer me a guest DT post this month. She sent me 2 stamps sets to play with - Birthday Balloons and Lines of Life.

Aside from having great stamp designs, MyStamp Box also features a unique storage system -- cd cases -- makes them easy to see, store and take along to crops!

I created several projects for them this month, including the LO above. Do check the rest of my projects here.

Scrap Tiffany Week 2

This week's challenge at Scrap Tiffany was to use something that we regret buying because it's so hideous...which was quite difficult to do since I can't bear to call any of my stash "hideous" and had to settle for something that I didn't like as much as I thought I would.

The colors for these Prima Crystals were pink, yellow, blue and red -- not exactly my choice of colors for bling, which is why I haven't used them before.

Title: Free
Journaling: You love to come to Canyon Woods to run around in Lola's yard -- the fresh air and wide, open sapce makes you feel so free!!! Jan 2009
Materials: Patterned papers - MME, Sassfras Lass, American Crafts; Prima fabric, Doodlebug alpha stickers, Prima crystals & vines, 7 Gypsies sticker, Zig pen, MM paint, MM clip, Clearsnap ink, misc canvas cloth; Prima packaging

Notice I took out my sewing machine (about a once a year thing for for this LO. Do check out the rest of the DT's work here.
