My First Bath

You will probably notice that I tend to use papers that I've used before in a series of layouts. I try not to have a pile of scraps because I don't have space (and it's my little contribution to save the trees hehehe *no kidding*).

The photo I used here was not the original photo that I planned to use. But, since, we cleaned up a bit, I didn't know where it was placed. Haha.

But, then, I realized that the small embossed circles are actually good because it could pass off as bubbles hehehe.

I used my untouched Nana's Kids papers/chipboards (finally!) and the scrap of pink paper lace.

Found out this evening that I won a RAK from Leena! So happy *jumping up and down*! Oh, it feels like Christmas in March.

"Thank you, Leena! And, all the best on your new job!"

I am off to the airport to pick up my relatives. I am so excited see them!

Daddy's Red Cap

My hubby wants to document this little fetish of Bebi A. My baby just loves her daddy's red cap. She will kiss it, bring it close to her and twist the tag while she's drinking milk. Actually, it started with other tags (her Tweety pillow tag, her Winnie the Pooh slippers tag) but it somehow found its way to Daddy's red cap. Whenever she's drinking milk, the red cap must be around her. There are times when I am already so sleepy but had to get up just to get this from the living room. Oh well. The Daddy's just so tickled with this obsession!

I used Love, Elsie papers and embellishments here (Zoe, Lola, Riley). I dooded the brick wall (loved it!), it has been a long time since I incorporated doodling in my layouts but my last two outputs have it. I guess it's because I am using my Love, Elsie papers and it goes well with that.

Journal :

I need my daddy's red cap when I am drinking my milky. I want to twist the tag, smell it and kiss it! Sometimes they give me the blue cap but it's not the same. I must have daddy's red cap!

Best Friends

My husband will probably shake his head due to the white space. He just can't accept that there's such thing as white space in scrapbooking.

I did this last Saturday at home with the other scrappers who stayed behind. I wanted to scrap something but I got distracted by things and couldn't start anything. Finally was able to used the green polka dot AdornIt paper, just love the color. Then, layered it with Love, Elsie Zoe and embellished it with Love, Elsie Zoe stickers, AdornIt stickers and K&Co chipboard.

Journal :

We always tell you to love each other. Not to fight on who's playing the computer tonight or who gets the last piece of chocolate. Always remember that sisters are each other's defender, sound board and BEST FRIEND.

Papers and More Papers

I am overwhelmed on the amount of papers I have accumulated over the past 2 years. All because I was stressed at work. I started collecting and hording papers but never got the chance to actually use it. So, now, I have these old papers (2006) and new papers (CHA Winter '08) hehehe

I have decided not to add more to it in the coming months (hmmm let's wait and see!). After all, I have my Love, Elsie Claire, right? And, that's what I have been itching to buy. I promised to just buy adhesives and nothing else.

How I wish my scrap world is a perfect world! Hahaha Where my scrap supplies accumulates and my funds not dwindling. But, I am still in the phase where I horde things just because they are pretty. But, the truth is, I am not sure if I will ever be able to use them.

Anyway, these are just my thoughts and resolutions. It's something to I thought of to destress myself from office problems. And, I am not even sure if I will remember this by thursday. Hahaha.

Princess Hours

I was so happy when I thought of the title. Can you guess why? Haha. I've been following (every now and then) Korean telenovela since 2005. And, one of those series that I watched til my eyes dropped in the wee hours of the morning was "Princess Hours or Goong". I liked the pricess there which also stars in Coffee Prince hehe (another fave of mine!)


Eversince I did the layout for Bebi A, You are the Sunshine of my Life, Dawter kept bugging me to make one for her. She wanted to choose the papers that I will use, she actually wanted Love, Elsie's embossed paper, the one with the cupcake. But, I told her that her dress in the picture is too dark. Hmmm... So, I bargained that I will put the word "princess" in the layout. Haha. Princess is a very fitting title to my, erm, princess. And, I am the queen! Hahaha!

Kidding aside, she's one of our princesses. Though, I put the journal as such. My daughter though a little bossy sometimes to her younger sister, is a very good role model. She just love her sis to bits. She wants Bebi A to kiss and hug her, teaches her things (just this morning, she flashed animal cards to Bebi A and corrects Bebi A if she says the wrong animal name). And, she's very sweet, always concerned about your well-being. Sometimes, I find her too old for her young age. She never threw tantrums in public, though lately, at home, there's some defiance when I ask them to stop playing Wii or the computer. (She just can't seem to get enough, arghhhh.) I guess I can go on and on about her. Please bear with me, I am just a mother in love hehehe.

Journal :
