Stamps Delight

A few days ago, just to lure them away from watching too much tv and playing online games. I enticed my girls to play with my Imaginisce and OA stamps. Bebi A wanted to use "the one with numbers" --- errmmm, the Imaginisce calendar hahaha while Dawter T asked permission to use the OA dog stamp.

Dawter T is quite a responsible stamper. She knows how to clean them up. Whereas Bebi A, slippery fingers and all, accidentally stamped additional designs on our bed sheet. Hehe.

After a few more accidents and stamping galore, Bebi A became content on just looking at her Ate while she stamps birds, swirls for her. Then, before lights off, Dawter T arranged her stamped images beside her bed. Those were her treasures for the night. While Bebi A, with her "milky" on hand, forgot all about it.

The Love Of A Father

This was taken on Bebi A's second day. We were all at my hospital room and Pre wanted to put Bebi A under the sun (near the window will do hehehe) as we were both afraid that we'll have the same experience as our first born where we had to leave Dawter T behind because she has jaundice. To cut the story short, we brought her home with us, safe and healthy. Prayers and love are just what it needs for a miracle!

Pre is a good father to the two girls. He loves them so much but never spoils them with material things. He tries to balance it out. He disciplines them but never to the extent of becoming to harsh. With that, the two girls love him back.
We are all blessed to have him and we wish him a (BELATED) Happy Father's Day!

Why Do I Scrapbook?

Last month, I joined the essay challenge at MWL. I tried to be funny hehehe and at the same time emotional. After all, scrapbooking is not just a current hobby, I plan to do this for a long (read as : maybe until I've used up all my papers) time.

I want to share an excerpt of what I wrote :

I am a paper lover. God bless the trees that hurt every time I say this. But, I love papers. I collected and traded scented stationeries when I was in my primary years. I store wrapping papers until recently, much to the chagrin of my husband. However, these days, I hoard 12x12 acid-free and lignin-free papers. That's my treasure which I am sure my two daughters will love when they come to age because it's antique and has not turned yellow. Just a thought though, will my funky "Love, Elsie" papers be categorized as vintage 20 to 30 years from now?

I did not win but I received a yummy Prima heart stamp and a handmade card from MWL. Woohoo! Thanks MWL!

Create Beauty

Made this layout for {Create}. It's their first anniversary this month! Congratulations, Ladies!
This photo was taken at KLCC when we went to KL on 2004 for a short vacation. We met up with Dawter T's godfather and his family.

Lolo and Me

Lolo is the Filipino term for Grandpa. The few times my father visited, both of them were taken to each other. Dawter T sometimes call him "Lolo Pogi".

My Baby

Lift from Laura's layout on Challenge #4.

I have long wanted to scrap this picture of Bebi A which I edited in Photoshop. This photo was taken at Sentosa when Tita E's family came to visit.

Journal :

You make me happy when I'm feeling blue.

Daddy's Day Out

This was taken at Marina Square when Ate A was in the Philippines. It was a happy family moment. We were there to watch Barney (Christmas special). One of the few pictures I managed to take before the battery ran out. And, in case you're wondering, the battery ran out during the show. Hahaha. I had to take photos using my phone.
