Burlap & Buttercups Jan Kit

Here are my LOs for Burlap & Buttercups January kit -- which has, once again, sold out...woohoo!

This 1st LO is for the sketch that comes with the kit. I used pictures from our trip to Hong Kong Disney last year...this gave me a wake-up call to finish scrapping last summer's pics because summer vacation is coming to Manila in a month!!!

This 2nd LO uses a pic from our recent visit to Corregidor Island, where Filipino and American forces made their last stand before falling to Japanese invaders during World War 2.

This next LO uses a pic from last year when we got together with my scrapping friends, and instead of scrapping, we needed up taking each other's photos!

This 4th LO uses pics from our Singapore trip also last summer. Bianca loved this store inside and outside and insisted on having her photos taken with everything! I love the Ali Edwards stamps from Technique Tuesday and try to add a word in every now and then...

It may sound redundant but these Floral Flowers from Manor House Creations are really quite adorable....they are unique because they are made using some pretty floral fabric...

Pencil Lines Sketch 264

Here's Pencil Lines' 1st sketch for 2012 made by none other than ME!!! I guess there were a few delays in posting because this was supposed to come out in December, but I'm sure most of you still haven't started on last Christmas' photos anyway...

Pretty Flowers

Manor House Creations has some really pretty flowers this season, some of which are featured in this LO of Nadya.

Title: Pretty
Materials: Cardstock & Patterned Papers - American Crafts; Die-cuts - Pebbles, Inc and American Crafts; Flowers & Leaves - Manor House Creations; Stamp - Fiskars; Mask - The Crafter's Workshop; Metal Embellishment - American Crafts; Candy Dots - Pebbles Inc; Die-cutting Machine - Slice; Border Punch - Martha Stewart; Ink - Clearsnap; Pen - American Crafts

I love the color of the big yellow flower and made it my focal point flower as it perfectly matches the trim on Nadya's dress.  The assorted white and cream flowers are perfect additions to add depth, dimension and texture, without taking away from the focal point.

Happy New Year!!!

The past month has been unbelievably busy, even more than usual for this time of the year. So here finally are my last completed LOs for 2011...I had committed to do more but I had run out of time...

Here is Burlap and Buttercup's December kit...

and add-on...

And here's my New Year LO...it was the 1st time for us to host our family's New Year's Eve celebration to welcome 2011. We usually go out of town for this to avoid the pollution from the fireworks but we were too lazy to drive out last year.

This LO uses pictures from Christmas Eve when the kids open presents from Mom and Dad and relatives who are present for our Noche Buena.

And here is Christmas Morning when the kids open check out what Santa left for them in their stockings. We have a special plate to put Santa's cookies (plus carrots for the reindeer) on, which the kids made a few years back.

I hope you all had a great 2011 and look forward to an even better 2012!!!
