Scrap a Month of Your Life

When I thought of this for SC's weekly challenge, I told myself that I would like to do this monthly so that I will remember that month in our lives. It's now part of my scrapbook resolution, I hope I can accomplish it. *wink*

This is one of most memorable events of our 2008 --- when Tita E's family came to Singapore. After almost 9 years, I get to spend time with them. I used to live with them when I was still in the Philippines and having them here was a dream come true.

Scrappers, I hope you join us in SC for the last few challenges this year.

Sketch 122 : Growing Up

I am soooo in love with this layout. It's like going back in time and looking at Dawter T 6 years ago. Isn't she the cutest?! Hahaha... A mother has the right to say that. *wink* She was 3-12 months here. Now, that I've unearthed this from the deepest of my photo pits, I find it so endearing that she looks like Bebi A or Bebi A looks like her (see pic 4) hehehe

I used Pamela's Sketch 122 for this and this is now up at Scrapbook Challenges. Speaking of SC, come next week, there will be new faces in the design team. Do watch out for Pamela's announcement!

A Few More Days

A few more days and it's Christmas. The girls are happilly anticipating it. Can't wait to open their gifts. How easy it is to be a child?! At least they know whose birthday it is? *wink* That's what I want to instill in them. But, they've been going to the Barney show that's being shown at the nearby mall (two days in a row already).

A few more weeks and school starts. Dawter T is starting Primary 1 *scary!!!* and Bebi A is taking her first steps to Nursery. Oh, how different the two are! Bebi A doesn't want to go to school she just wants to stay at home whereas Dawter T is an excited bee hehe. Due to the Christmas fever, I haven't done any preps for their school yet, still no bag for Dawter T and no shoes for both of them.

I just feel so overwhelmed. But, getting really excited with the coming holidays and special events in our lives. *wink* Pre and I are starting our 7th year as husband and wife. Woohoo! Who would have thought he would last long? Haha. Just kidding.

Anyway, 2008 is coming to a close. Despite the not so positive forecast, we're keeping our hope and faith alive that 2009 will be as good, even better year for everybody.

Don't Mess With Texas

Here's my take to Pamela's Sketch 121. The embellishments were from my dear cousin B. She bought it for me to scrap my trip to the US. It was only when I was doing this lo that I realized that the embellishments were from Scrapbook Challenges' December Sponsor, Reminisce! You will fall in love with their products coz I did!

Give Love

I've been working round the clock lately due to server upgrades. I haven't had a decent sleep for weeks now. And, I think it's finally taking its toll. Irritable. Blur. Tired.

But, what turns my day around aside from seeing my girls *wink* is scrapping. I just spend my energy cutting, cropping and pasting. That leaves a smile on my face.

I know that it's just a few days before Christmas. (We don't even have a tree yet! Hahaha) But, I would like to invite you to join our Christmas Card challenge at Scrapbook Challenges. It's my turn to issue a challenge and since Christmas is starting late for me this year, it's never too late to create a Christmas card!

And, of course, the week will not be complete without Pamela's Sketch. It's the 120th sketch! Come join the fun! I fell in love with the wood thingy on my sketch 120 take, it's from my Mommy Jane (my monita)! I love it!!!

Give Love On Christmas Day

Well, not only on Christmas day, but everyday.

Last April (if I'm not mistaken), Scrappers At SG created 124 pages for SCKC. Last Saturday, we managed to create 100 pages. I urge you to help the endeavor, it can be by posting the SCKC endeavor, donating some of your scraps/stash or by also creating 6x6 pages and send to Julie.

And, mind you, Mareng M, tagged as the girl with the big heart (hihi), is promoting this endeavor with a RAK. So hop on over to her site and know more about the SCKC endeavor.

A little help goes a long way!

Everyday Is A Blessing

This is my layout for {Create} for our December Challenge. Please join us this December, all you need to do is submit a Christmas themed card, altered item, layout. And, there' are RAKs from the members of the DT!
This was taken at Cute#1's house. We usually celebrate our Christmas eve there. With a mass at St. Michael's church then potluck dinner before and after the mass (hahaha). That year, 2006, was the last year with my our close friends B and J (whose family both migrated to Australia). Cute#1's idea was that each of the household will color-coordinate. Of course, we chose yellow! Hehe.

A Peek Into December

Here's a peek of what's in store for everyone at {CREATE}. Do join us this December, great challenge and amazing prizes!!! And, thanks to everyone who joined "November brew"!
