I'm so happy I won in the recent contest at A Peek Into Yesterday (APIY), Nothing but Paper. Their site was down for several days and the announcement of winner for this particular contest was postponed for another week. I was surprised to receive a text message from Chiqui Gutierrez congratulating me on my win. Here is my LO:
Materials used: DCWV and Bazzill cardstock, Scenic Route Paper Co (Ashville), Creative Imagination Alpha Stickers, Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink, Unipin Pen, Fancy Pants Bella Brush Clear Stamps, Tsukineko Versafine Ink
Journaling: July 30, 2006 - For one night, I was able to experience "living a suite life". I was so lucky to have won in the first ever Speed Scrappin' sponsored by Filstar. Part of my prize was a gift certificate worth PhP2000 with food and drinks entitlement at Discovery Suites, Ortigas, Psig City. I was with my friend, Weng.
For my prize, I have a $25 GC to spend at APIY. This is my third $25 GC from Peek. My winning LO is also displayed the homepage of APIY for a week.
Here is another LO made for an earlier contest at APIY. The contest's theme is "Because of Scrapbooking". Here is my take on this challenge which didn't win but I'm glad I was able to make this page:
Materials used: Bo Bunny Gift of Love patterned papers (Paris Blossoms and Paris Romance), Fancy Pants patterned paper, Bo Bunny die cuts, DCWV cardstock, Creative Imagination alphabet stickers, blings, MM flowers with pebble brads, artificial leaves, felt shape, ricrac, ribbon, mini brads,Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink, Inkessentials Glossy Accents, Reeves glitter glue, DMC thread, Uniball sign pen
The journaling is done on strips of DCWV cardstock and is handwritten. I made an envelope where my journaling strips may be found. Here are the things I learned/did/accomplished because of scrapbooking in no particular order:
I discovered my artistic side.
I revived my journal-writing.
I gained confidence in joining contests, on-line or on-the-spot.
I was a SCRAPBBOOK in one Halloween Party I attended.
I became a Guest Designer of some on-line stores.
I became a certified LB (Los Banos) Scrapaholic.
I have my own SCRAP AREA in the house.
I won a trip to Hongkong.
I learned blogging and internet surfing.
I gained friends who share the same passion as mine.
I got used to carrying BIG BAGS containing my stuff.
I was able to preserve wonderful memories of those I love.
I bought scrapbooking supplies with my clothing allowance.
I realized just how precious my hands are.
