Monsoon creative rush

This past two weeks,  Mr Sunshine took a long vacation and went somewhere else.  Monsoon rains  hit Manila badly with lots of flooding in Central Luzon.  I am living in  a higher land  and not affected.  Though with the storm and monsoon rains  it is difficult to travel for work  and quite dangerous and with lots of flooding along the way.

With that,  we were house arrested!  No place to go.  And I just love that!  I had lots of time to play and hide in my favorite corner   and I was able to reduce my scrapbook backlogs!

Here's a page,  using the sketch in Inkido for this month's challenge and the textile challenge at berry71bleu.

loved these inkido blooms!

And here's another page,  using my scraps  and playing with mixed media.

Thanks for the visit and bring me sunny thoughts!

I am proud to reveal my age  since it is only a number.   Reality only hits  when the toddler you used to take care of and plays with  now hangs out with you.  That when I feel  I really am getting old!

Here's a lay-out  celebrating life and thankful  for the blessings  I had this year.  Joining the textile challenge over at Berry71bleu!  I used a lace in my lay-out.

have a great day!

FSCB Sketch#26: Tres Marias

Super late posting!

I'm guilty of neglecting my blog and not updating it.  So sorry!
The month is about to end and here's sharing my take on the sketch of Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge blog.
The sketch:

My lay-out:  I used a fabric tape for the circle!

Since we don't have little girls,  I have to borrow a picture of  a friend again.  Thanks Nellie!

There's still time to join on the challenges of FSCB!!!  See you there!

Have a great week ahead everyone.

hugs,  Jona
