Some Layouts for Scrapwords

For the second half of April I have created a total of 6 LO's for Scrapwords' various challenges:

Layout #1 - Wordsmith Selena's Sketch #2 Challenge:

Materials used: 2 different patterned papers: Fancy Pants (Floral Chic) and Prima Oddesey Collection (Lisbon), cardstock (red and lavender), paper (light lavender), Cloud 9 alpha stickers (AUTHENTIC), Craft Express Alpha chipboards (SMILE), Alpha rubons, Prima flowers, lace and trimmings, bling, acrylic paint, fiber, glossy accents, glitter glue, Versafine ink (black), Inque boutique rubber stamp, brad

Techniques used: Stamping (journaling block), stitching, distressing, hidden journaling

Journaling (beneath the photo):

One day while I was loooking at our photos, I noticed that Dannah and I smiled differently. When I smile, my teeth are revealed while Dannah smiles with her lips together, not exposing her teeth (see photo a). Just for fun, we tried taking photos of ourselves, "borrowing each other's smiles". Dannah smiled with her teeth exposed while I smiled with my lips together. First try? Not that authentic (see photo b). But our second try (see photo c) proved to be authentic! Another moment to remember between Dannah and me. March 29, 2008 - ACC, Mayapa, Calamba City

Journaling: If there is something I never outgrew, it is my fondnessfor BIG BAGS. Even as a working woman, you would see me sporting a big bag, just like the one in this photo, an apple green gelly bag with Tinkerbell design. This is probably because of the nature of my work. I need a carry-all bag to contain all my stuff including books, exams, teaching materials and SCRAPBOOKING stuff. October 2006
