Color Combos Galore #148

Color Combos Galore Challenge #148 is up and here's my LO for this beautiful color scheme -- the mix of dark pink, lavender and a kind of mustard yellow is unusual but so much fun to play with!

And the best part is, except for the pink lace and mist, everything else has been in my stash for at least the last 2 years (recognize the Basic Grey papers)...I can't believe I have finally found a use for that huge Prima flower!!!

Title: Yummy-licious
Materials: Cardstock - Bazzill; Patterned papers and alpha stickers - Basic Grey; Flower - Prima; Mist - Tattered Angels; Transparency - Hambly; Metal Tab - Making Memories; misc lace; border punch - Fiskars

Do try your hand at this one!

Happy Father's Day!

Belated Happy Father's Day to all the dads in your lives!

My husband got to decide on what we did yesterday...which is why this post got delayed. We had an 8:00am breakfast at CaraMia, followed by the 9:15am mass, then rushed to the 11:00am screening of Toy Story 3, and lunch at 1:00pm. We took a break in the afternoon but went out again for dinner at CPK.

For today, I have 3 LOs using Dan the Record Man from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker. I want to thank Nikki for letting me be on her team for another year, yehey!!! Nikki is such a joy to work with and working with an awesome team is a huge bonus!

...just gets worse as you get older. For the 3rd day in a row, the whole family was up by 3:30 am today (slightly better than the 2AM the last 2 days), so we decided to go to McDonald's for breakfast.

We arrived last Thursday, after 3 weeks of eating and travelling, to a home that is under renovation (and will be for the next 3 months)...and the stiffling heat of Manila...with an aching back (blame it on airline luggage surcharges so we had to maximize our allowed carry-ons)...and a rapidly growing list of things that needed to be done yesterday.  Welcome to my reality!

So pardon me for this delayed posting of Sketchabilities #17 which was revealed last May 30. 

Do check out the takes of my co-DT, never ceases to amaze me how many takes there are to the same sketch!

It's so hard to believe my 3-month term is up. Sketchabilities has a DT Call for the July-Sept 2010 term so please check it out.

Now time for me to go back to sleep's 12noon already!

Snobby Walrus 1st Challenge and June Kit!

Hi again everyone! Snobby Walrus' 1st Challenge is up on the blog, and I hope that you all can join this one, hosted by Lynette Davis!

Above is the wicked June kit called "Dirty Martini" (don't you just adore the kit names that Tracy comes up with???) and below are my projects for this month, with some stuff from the add-on kits...

I loved working with this kit even if I only had 2 days to work with it since I had to go out of town...and still have many materials left over for when I get back! Cheers and Advanced Happy Father's Day to all the Dads in your life!

Color Combos Galore!!!

I'm so happy to announce that I am part of the new Color Combos Galore DT, and super excited to be working with a great, no ... awesome team!!!
