Simple Joys

This is how I spend my summer,  swimming, sunset watching, stargazing.  My simple joys. 

I really fell in love with spring market of Websters Pages and I am so happy that I won the chat rak and requested this line.
Here are some close ups:

I ruffled the trim for added texture
gorgeous Prima flowers,  I really love clustering,

And now, I'm tickled pink  because this page is featured at Webster's Inspire me. 
Have a nice day!

Stolen Parcel

My Inkido DT box  got lost somewhere in the mail.  I really feel so bad about it.  Then,  I learned about the robbery in the Rizal post.  I guess my parcel  was part of it.  I just hope they had fun with the papers and embellishments Lise-lotte sent me.

Anyway,  it the robbery wouldn't stop me from creating pages for Inkido  since I keep all my scraps and L-L is very generous with her designers with all the embellishments. 

I used my scraps from different lines here -  Apples, Gammaldags Jul, and Autumn papers.  I love to mix lines and loved the outcome of this.

The die cuts were painted and distressed using distress powders and stickled!
Here are some close - ups:
Isn't he a cute birdie?

Have a nice day and drop by inkido blog for lots of inspirations!

Our Escape

It feels summer now in the Philippines.  And I feel like going to the beach already.  This photo is taken last July 2010 during my birthday celebration.  We really love waters  and the beaches. 

Travel Forever  is my favorite line of Best Creation this semester.  Why?  I love travel and discovering new places.  Its so perfect for our travels.  And this reminds me to scrapbook our Bantayan Island trip which until now,  I haven't started yet. 

close ups on these cute luggages:

And to document our travels,   I created a journal to write all memories so that it would be easier to make my journaling for my scrapbook pages.

Happy travels!  And don't forget to check out Best creation blog for lots of travel inspiration!

Aren't they just gorgeous?

And here they are on a lay-out:  "Sweet Love"

A creative weekend

This is the first weekend of the year that I was alone at home and with my scrapbook materials.  Zid is in Tagaytay with his Lola and two younger cousins.  Thus,  a very productive and creative weekend for me.   Oh, I'm going to enjoy lots of me time when Zid goes to Tagaytay for the summer!!!

Here's a lay-out for Zid with his friends in school.  I used my webster scraps on this one.
And here's the sneaks of the other pages I have done:

Make sure to watch out for Best creation blog for the upcoming challenges.  There will be some prizes for sure!

Thanks for dropping by!
