3 LOs for a Long Weekend

Hi there! We're enjoying the 4th and last day of the long weekend due to the Eid'l Fitr (yesterday) and a local hero's death anniversary (today). It's back to school for my toddler and back to work for me.

Besides lazing around, enjoying the 4-day holiday, I was finally able to finish and take pictures of the 3 LOs that were part of Iris Babao-Uy's July 28 class at our LSS. Here they are:

Kissable Lips

Hey, I'm back with another layout! Well, I was actually busy these past weeks creating a mini-album for the Grap-a-Swap challenge of PinoyScrapbookers group in Facebook. I cannot post it yet because the full reveal is not until August 19th.

So I'm featuring this LO first, which is 1 of 4 LOs from the class conducted by Iris Babao-Uy at our local LSS last July 28. I made some alterations from her original LO because I was unable to attend the class so I don't have some of the materials used there.

Here are a few close-ups:

Lovely, lovely Dustic Attic chipboard! :)

Flower cut-outs and bird die-cut:

Ribbon lace misted with Glimmer Mist. I also applied Jo Sonja's opal dust but its not visible on the picture.

That's it! Have a happy weekend!

Webster's Pages "We Love Our Guys" Challenge

Yahoo! I was able to put on my creative cap this afternoon and came up with this LO of my boys for Webster's Pages' June 2012 challenge. WP has such beautiful products and I was very fortunate to have won in some of their past challenges, so I hope I get lucky again this time! :D

I used WP's Yacht Club papers, as well as bits of Seaside Retreat and Party Lights patterned paper and diecut stickers from their Nature's Storybook line. I also used WP embellishments: princess florettes, alpha stickers, sparklers, whimsies and designer threads.

This LO features the two most important men in my life. Photos were taken last year during a nephew's birthday party, March 2011.

I love that I was able to add various layers and textures on my LO. Rolling the sides of the paper at the corner adds depth, also showing off the designs on the back part.

Featuring some close-up shots to showcase the details:

That's it! Enjoy the weekend!

Materials used: Webster's Pages pps, princess florettes, alpha stickers, diecut stickers, designer thread, whimsy, sparkler. Zva Creative crystals. Maya Road pins. Karen Foster metal label. Martha Stewart punchers. Tim Holtz distress inks. Ranger crackle paint. Twine. White cardstock. Gesso. Local flowers and gold brad.

I Am

Gosh, it's been 5 months!

Well, I'm back again with another Webster's Pages layout of... myself. Hehehe! :D

I was supposed to include this in their Girly Challenge but didn't have time to update my blog. *sigh*

I do hope I'll be able to join in their next challenge. I sooo loved my last prize from them!

The following WP products were used for this layout:
Of course, providing some close-up shots:

Other materials include Maya Road pearl pins, Pink Paislee alpha stickers and dangle elements, Dusty Attic wire dress form, Martha Stewart puncher, local ribbon, lace and white twine.

That's it!

TFL and have a great week ahead!

Bruno: My New Baby

He's cute, cuddly, so sweet and adorable... and he's mine! ♥

Half japanese spitz and half chinese sharpei, the latest type of male species that has captured my heart. Haha! :D

I got him yesterday and already bought him to the vet for check-up. All's good with him. Newly groomed, nails trimmed, 5-in-1 shot done and doggie vitamins purchased. He's scheduled for de-worming next Saturday.

Oh dear, this one's going to distract me from scrapbooking and card-making!

Have a blessed Sunday!
