Color Challenge

This one from Design Dollies was a tough one (for me)! We're required to use lavender-gray-white/ivory! Hmmm....this is supposed to be the 1st to be done from the week's challenges but it happened to be the last for me to came up with.

Here's my scrappin' buddies - the LB Scrapaholics! The pic was taken during our first ever Pajama Party held at Ritz's place. It's a "Scrap until you drop" thing. Even our DHs are encouraging us to do it again coz' they know how much fun we had!

Another One for the Dollies

For the Elements Challenge- Design Dollies is asking for a project in honor of the women who have touched our lives in one way or another.
Throughout my entire life, there's a lot of wonderful women who touched and are continuously touching my life leaving HEARTPRINTS.....of love, friendship and enormous joy. And I'm grateful for them. My mom ranks No. 1 of course followed by my daughters (it's a tie)! Whatever I am today, I owe it to her. If my kids would say I'm a good mom, it is because I have the best mom!
I made this LO for her and my daughters.....they are my Beloved Women!
I used Webster's Pages (for the first time) and some ranger distress inks for the base CS. Added Prima flowers and blings!

Notes(Writer Unknown):
She gave me love as well as life, so whatever goodness I may bring to Earth began with the gift of my mother's heart!


Design Dollies

Chix recommended to visit Design Dollies for me to gather more inspirations and to keep me in the mood to scrap. And she was right! The site is indeed fabulous and the challenges are great.

Here's my take to their Sketch challenge:

Love Month

February indeed is a month of LOVE. We had a pre-valentine family dinner by candlelight at the garden of Café Lina where we had so much excitement guessing what to eat next after each serving and of course a fun filled photo op.

Since scrappin’ is one of the things I love, I’m happy to say I have made 7 LOs as of last night and my mojo is still here. I’m more on clean and simple LOs.
Special thanks to Scrapmuse’ “Spread the Love” month long challenges for giving me inspirations and that certain “PUSH” for me to scrap more often.
I will upload my finished LOs here at the end of the month.

Also, Nette of My Little Attic gave us an opportunity to get a FREE class pass to Valerie Salmon’s Got Sketch 105!!!
All we have to do is make a layout based Val’s sketch and winner will be randomly chosen so everybody has an equal chance of winning. 

Here’s the link to Val’s class:

And here’s the sketch and my entry:

ScrapMuse Blog HOP

Hi everyone! There's something exciting happening at Scrapmuse from Feb 15-17. Check it out here

I had fun "hopping" from one blog to another. It's my first time and for sure this wouldn't be the last.
The inspirations are overwhelming and my hands are itching to scrap!

Come and enjoy the journey!

To Do List

New year resolutions shouldn’t start nor end in January, right?
And for the fresh start (It’s Chinese New Year, anyway…though I’m not a Chinese) here goes my list:

1. undergo complete medical check up before March ends (I did it last year!) and was proclaimed “perfectly healthy!” I want to hear those words again!
2. keep riding my bike with DH and kids (next Saturday would be the first for 2010)
3. hone my driving skills (with DH supervision) and drive more often (the car is automatic, no excuses)
4. scrap regularly and achieve at least 4 LOs per month (got 8 in January)!
5. add few more crunches (I’m havin’ 80-100 every morning!)
6. limit my rice intake to 1 cup per meal (sigh!)
7. learn to cook MORE of family favorites! It used to be fried rice omelet and sushi only! LOL!!! Kids are getting demanding each day!
8. make “bonding time” longer on a daily basis!
9. keep on giggling and laughin! (it’s my daily dose!)
10. be happier and make others happy, too!

that's all for now! would update if something come up later!

Fresh Start in February

Hi everyone! Been MIA for the longest time but i know there's always a second chance.

For January I made 8 layouts in 2 days ( Scrap Buffet Jan 30 -31). Thanks to Ritz and the rest of LB Scrapaholics for the never ending support and encouragement.

And to make the ball rolling, I joined the month long challenge ' Spread the Love" at Scrapmuse

Come and join us.... have fun and keep those LOs comin"!
