A Productive Weekend

After almost two months of not scrapping, I found myself scrapping again last weekend. Imagine, I was able to finish six layouts, one altered item and two tags. Thanks to Coordinates Collection and Scrappin Kids for organizing weekend crops and monthly contests.

Here are the layouts I was able to complete:

Cotton Candy Girl using different alphas on your layout

My Shy Elf using different colors on your layout

The Blade for a recipe challenge

Fast Food Lovers using bright colors

Sights of Christmas using something that glitters

It's a Bug's Life using SK March Sketch

Here is the altered clipboard:

This one goes to my office wherein the motif is green. BTW, this used different shades of one color.

Here are the tags:

Congrats tags for Dannah and Paula for being academic awardees this school year. I used my scraps to make these tags.

I'm so glad my mojo is back. And with a tidy and organized scrapbook area, I'm sure I'll be inspired to scrap again.

New Look

I had my scrapbook area made when we relocated to our house last April 2007. Hadn't had the chance to have it painted. For almost two years my scrapbook area remained unpainted.

Here is how it looked liked for almost two years plus my stuff of course:

I have to remove all my stuff before before I had it painted. This means my stuff were all over the house during that time:

I wanted my scrapbook area to be the most colorful part of our house so I chose four colors of paints namely lime, pink, violet and orange.

This is how it looked like just after it was painted:

And now with my stuff:

Thanks for looking!

What's with me?

I haven't scrapped for quite sometime. My 15th layout for the year and my last as of this time was completed during Dra. Rita's birthday celebration last January 25.

I've been dying to scrap but I was busy with work, work, work!!! I was part of a writing team tasked to produce a book on Organic Rice Production (in Filipino, in press as of this time). I was able to come up with 6 out of the 12 chapters. Then came some work-related trips to Geo Farm in Bayambang, Pangasinan and Baguio City last Feb 7-8, to Alaminos and Pangasinan last February 21-22 plus some class trips in nearby towns. I also had some parts of the house repaired and repainted including my scrapbook area. I'll post some photos of my scrapbook area's new look one of these days.

BTW, I received several RAKs and prizes from the US (Kristi Smith) and My Scrapbook Nook, Singapore (Marix) and Philippines (Nina). Still waiting for one coming from Malaysia, another one from Brunei and one from the US. Still have to spend some GC's from Coordinates Collection, A Peek into Yesterday and ScrapAttack Scrapbooking (courtesy of Scrap Stars) amounting to $50.

Here are my prizes and RAKs:

From Kristi for winning in her monthly blog challenge

From My Scrapbook Nook - its December kit

From Marix for winning in her Triple Treat #1

Another one from Marix for winning in her Triple Treat #2. So so LUCKY, huh..

From Nina for joining her blog challenge

Thanks ladies....

Now, guess what's making me busy these days? Here it is:

I'm in love with frogs.

I've been busy hunting for froggie stuff here, there and everywhere!

I'm loving all the green!!!

My DD Dannah's birthday is fast approaching. On Sunday she'll be turning 12. She celebrated her birthday in school today, today being the last day of their final examination. Here are what I prepared for her birthday:

Invites for the girls (I used my scraps to make these tags.)

For the boys (I used only one pp's to make all these tags.)

For the teachers (I placed a poem entitled "Why God created teachers in front of the tags.)

Her giveaways:

Prizes for the games:

Dannah and some of her classmates and teachers:
