It may be the longest day  I ever had.  Killing 7 hours was totally worth it - to be up close and personal with Nicholas Sparks!!!  He is one of my favorite novelist and my favorite novel of him will always be The Notebook, Message in a Bottle and now , "The Best of Me".
I mixed the "Forever Summer" with "Forever Santa" papers of Inkido.  The sparrow is from the 2010 Inkido Autumn paper.  I also made a tag and added in the lay-out.  Stamps from the tag are from inkido also.

Have a great Sunday!!!

For the love of Chipboard

I just love them -   dressed,  painted,  bare and altered. Here are my top ten projects  featuring the use of chipboards in no particular order.  Most of the time  I paint them and add texture with mixed media  or just keep them bare.   Sometimes the beauty of the chipboard comes with the inner beauty.

 a bare chandelier chipboard:
 altered dress form chipboard

 star chipboard covered with patterned paper and distressed:

 chipboards with art mediums

Here's my response for the Imaginarium Designs DT call.  Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!

Bicolandia Album

Its been a month since we, the Darling Angels together with our loved ones had a great time in Bicol and Misibis Bay.  Now, its about time to document those memories  . . .

I created this mini album from the cardboards I have collected this year, and added bits and pieces of patterned paper in between the pages.  I really had a hard time choosing a few photos from 900 photos we had from our vacation.
Papers are mostly from jubilee collection of Best Creation and some scraps  I have.  I  really can't throw them out.  I love making tassels and you will see more of them on my projects.
Have a great week ahead!

A day of creative fun!

Its a rare moment to scrap with my son around. And more so,  almost a whole day of creative fun.  I finished a lay-out and our mini album from our last vacation.
Here's my lay-out using the Get Picky  anniversary sketch #13.

Loved this sketch and loved how my July 4th blended well with my chosen photos.

Thanks for the visit and have a great weekend!!!

Altered Bottle

I loved altering bottles and my little space is now crowded with my altered bottles,  all filled with yummy flowers and buttons for my crafts.

This time I used a tostitos salsa bottle and adorned with Inkido flowers and trims.  I made my own tassel and added it to my cutie patootie bottle.

Thanks for the visit and have a great weekend!!!

Shabby Tag

I had so much fun making this tag from scraps and after being inspired by Berry bleu tags,  I guess,  I would like to make more tags to adorn my own scrapbook pages.

Little did I know,  that making tags require as much patience and enthusiasm as making cards and lay-outs.

Thanks for the visit.
