Its Christmas...Soon!

I can smell it in the air...Christmas I mean... So to kickstart this festive season, we took our Christmas tree from hibernation, lit and adorned it with yummy ornaments. The reds and the golds are really captivating. I just love the grandeur look that it brings, the majestic preparation as we commemorate the birth of Jesus.

Last year was exciting, since it was our first Christmas in a place that now we call our own "Home". This year is a different kind of fun though, since our son now at 3 years and 10 months old learns to appreciate the fun of hanging the balls on the tree and decorating it. This year is very meaningful to us... I hope you look forward Christmastime with the same joy and love that this holiday season brings to you and your family...

This was supposed to be my entry for last month's ScrappersatSG September Baby layout challenge. But I've done it 2 days lapsed from deadline... Anyway, better late than never...

These photos were taken when we dropped by Tito & Jeannevev's place for a visit to their lovely daughter Michaella... And that was roughly 3 years ago... Oh my, how fast time flies!

Our Little Happy Family

First time doing a mini album and I'd never thought it could be this fun albeit stealing hours from sleep. Last night, my dear son slept early so I got the chance to play longer. I enjoyed the painting part, first time to use paints too. I've had so many "firsts" in this project. Ive been scratching to start on this when I got my Echo Park's Life is Good Kit about 2 weeks ago but couldnt find ample time to do so.

I find this kit's colors really pleasing to the eyes and easier to play with. This album is a work in progress so I still need to fill it in.

Just Swinging By

Just having fun one Sunday night, playing along with Card Patterns sketch 83. I used 6x6 paper pad for the coordinating cardstocks from Basic Grey, Swing girl stamped image from Unity stamps (thanks CJ for this!), metallic flower studs are from my bead stash from long time ago. This was fast, easy and can be easily replicated. Hope you had fun, 'cause I definitely did.

This time, Im sharing a little bit about me...

I seldom do a layout for myself, but Im giving this a shot. Most of my projects are either a picture of my son or a special gift project for a friend. I really find it easier to make one for others than of myself. Is that bad? Well, I hope not. But nevertheless, I made this little something about myself as a self portrait. And this is how I see myself.

I Dream.I Live.I Laugh.I Love. That's how I described my life. I just love my life so much, sometimes I feel guilty. Ive been asking myself and God over and over... "Have I really been this good to deserve the kind of life he gave me." But then again I realized God's love and generousity is immensed and unfathomable... I should just be thankful and grateful. And in return, do the same to others, to help and give unconditionally.

This is my take for Scrap-It-Lah's Scraplift Challenge. Layout has been scraplifted from DT Yatie's LO.

grins and giggles...

Cosmo cricket challenged us to create a layout inspired by their website page and use it as a sketch for our project. I must say the colors are really fresh and vibrant.

This is what I came up with. This was really fun to make.

This was a picture taken of my little boy one day at the playground. He was very happy playing with other kids while his daddy was so busy playing on his new toy --- a camera. Dad was a novice at photography during that time, now he's a notch higher.

Count your Blessings....

September is almost here. Thus my subconscious is prodding me to make something special for a very special friend --- Mary Kate! She's not one of the Olsens, she's way way smarter than any of them. Ive known her since college, we used to call ourselves 'Charmed Ones'. It was a hit during that time. We were inseparable then along with Vench. She's smart ( actually, its an understatement), she's brilliant to say the least. She's a woman of true character, with a big heart, a loving spirit and a good soul. She might not know this but she is a person I always look up to with pure admiration for her kindness, generousity and wisdom. A true beauty inside and out. We are oceans apart but she remained the closest to my heart. I love you my friend. I wish and pray for all the love and the graces to continue coming your way. You know that so many people loves you, Im one of them.

Continue to count your blessings 'cause I never stopped counting you as one of the many blessings I have. Our friendship is one of my life's treasure... Happy happy Birthday Katie!

And this card is for you...

Materials used: KC&CO (pattern paper), websters pages, fiscars scalloped lace border punch, bo bunny journaling tag, ribbon belt with metallic buckle (from sookie). This is my take for Card Patterns Sketch 78.

Sophisti - - Cathy

This is a birthday project I made for a friend close to my heart. She's none other than the lady I call Sophisti-Cathy. She's a mom of two, working and busy but still finds time and the effort to dress with flair and glam...

This is my take for SC's Color challenge --- though Ive added dash of yellow and a little bit of orange to give it a little spunk...

Materials used: Cardstock and cut out patterns from Webster's pages, flowers, butterfly using martha steward monarch punch.

Round Robin - - - Scrappers@Sg

The ladies of scrappers@sg had so much fun in the whole month of July where two groups had scrap lifted a great layout from Maps. The layout had really evolved and it was nice to see how each and one of us did the layout and made it our own. And here's my take for this challenge and
Sharm's Groovie Red Challenge. Rather simple but this was really fun to make with all those past kit sassafras -- happy place.

Materials: Cardstock and pattern papers from Sassafras...

Im planning to making another layout using this. Ive got to make a new one.

Happy Feet

It was a holiday. And while lounging in the couch, I was caught with this funny episode of my hubby and my son. Their feet in-synch. I couldnt help but chuckle. Like father.... like son...

Challenge #36 -- Little Pencil

Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu was a Catholic nun of Albanian ethnicity and Indian citizenship, who founded the Missionaries of Charity in Kolkata, India in 1950. For over 45 years she ministered to the poor, sick, orphaned, and dying. (Source: Wikipedia)

She had been a living saint worth emulating with the pureness of her heart. Her deeds and sacrifices to the poor is admired and has inspired many people from different walks of life. And I happen to be one of those who are trying very hard to follow her example. I hope I can do justice to her cause and try my very best to lend a hand to those in need in any way I can without second thoughts, doubts or expectation for something in return, not even a "thank you"...

And so the Blessed Mother Teresa is my inspiration for Challenge #36 Inspire/Motivate at S@SG and Scrap Dare #3 Word Challenge at Made With Love. It says " I am a little Pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the World -- Mother Teresa. Pardon on my handwriting, its slightly crooked. And by the way, this is the first time I tried misting. Its really intimidating.

Supplies used: Night Owl cutout (Pink Paislee), Flower cutouts (American Crafts- blue skies), Alphas (7 gypsies), Misting (Tattered Angels- Jazz Blue), fence (Ameroican Crafts - dear lizzy), mushroom chipboard sticker (sassafras), buttons, tree trunk (handmade) and painted with acrylic paint (Making Memories -Monarch.

Thanks a lot for dropping by...

Happy Anniversary -- 28th July'10

Today is a very very special day. Its been our fourth wedding anniversary, but he still swept me off my feet like the first time I lay my eyes on him 10 years ago...It started out as "I hate you because I love you too much" that kind of feeling. In denial of the feeling. But i ended up with him.I got Lucky! Bigtime! Everytime I see my husband and our son, I fall in love all over again... and again... and again.

And So This Is It --- For Jeannevev

And the singing continues...

Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday...
Happy Birthday To You!!!

Cheers to this wonderful celebration of life, with friends here wishing you nothing but the best, overflowing love, happiness and joy that lasts a lifetime.

And just like Buzz, I hope our friendship lasts "from Infinity and Beyond...

This is my take on MWL's scrap to dare#2 and scrap & Stamp button challenge.
