Creative Scrappers Sketch #101

I'm ecstatic to see my sketch as Creative Scrappers inspiration this week. With that happiness I thought my DH's photo will be perfect for my take. The Sketch is simple and elegant and that is just so for a Male LO.
I'm loving my Basic Grey - Origins collection and I'm thinking to use the rest of my papers for my next takes....

Ch{all}enge Masters Scraplift

I'm so proud I'm chosen to be the design-diva for Scraplift in Ch{all}enge Masters. Big reason is I can choose to showcase the LO of one of my favorite scrappers that I've known so far. This month I got to choose who to lift. I have lots of choices and I thought my term is not enough for my idols to feature to. Still have lot of them lined up-please wait and see.

Anyway, my first Scraplift is from Lady Grace. I'm sure lot of you knew her for the stunning LO's she made very month. and I'm very proud that I was able to lift her LO.

Here it is:


LOL...and this is mine. I put all my best to give justice on this...I hope you also get inspired with both.

All About Me Sweet Spring Blog Hop





Welcome peeps to All About Me Sweet Spring Blog Hop.

Well, I'm so proud that I'm one of the design team of All About Me. Every challenge excites me to view different perspectives of my life and as Me. Just because it may appear difficult to share your inner self to public and I have the same issues growing up, I thought the process of scrapbooking oneself is a way of embracing who I am, and I can become.

The challenge this time is "Self-improvement (your biggest flaw)". For me this is not the good time actually of knowing my biggest flaw. I am in my emotional turmoil this time and that I thought I am the biggest flaw. Yes I felt so low this past few months. I'm really thinking as hard as I can what is that I have that I come to this point...so I thought being a "fast learner" is my biggest flaw, you may ask why because once I learned them I easily get bored doing it all over again. Not with scrapbooking because the creative process of it always excite me to learn more and just more and more. I never get bored with it.

Here is my layout:
I first draw a sketch...yes I'm a sketch person. My goal is to have a newspaper type layout inspired by my Graphic 45 papers. Then just lay all skills I learned over the years. I love those Graphic 45 papers, the collections is just perfect.

I have prepared a RAK for you, I will have a random winner ... Please leave your comment let me know you are here and I will be glad if you become a follower too.

XOXO Scraplift Challenge....

Well, another month...with breath of summer especially here in Philippines. Too hot in here -our country is experiencing El Nino....off to beach for a swim....wow!

Anyway, here's my summer feel..with blues and yellows....I kinda like the combination. I was hoarding last sassafras papers and thanks to this challenge I've got to use them.

Please also visit XOXO challenge blog and be inspired with my co-DT's interpretation...

My life at the Moment

At Journal Challenges we are to write about Facts...What comes into my mind is the fact of my life at this moment...

I am in contemplating what to do and what to expect for the next year end. The fact that I did wrong for disregarding those opportunities laid on me 3 years ago...I should be more careful in all of my decisions now because time is limited already... it is running out for me....

Here's my LO with bright colors to remind me that life is indeed colorful and not contain in black and white documents and text or phone call away...its expanding my wings further than I could imagine.

April ARTastic Challenge

April's inspiration will come from the artist
Thomas Kinkade : St Nicholas Circle

Use this inspiration to scrap your house, the street where you live, beach house, street scape etc...
Note: This does not have to be a winter scene

Added criteria: Each item added to your page = 1 bonus point
1.Lamp
2. Arrowed sign post
3. Bridge
4. Rotunda/Gazebo
5. Green roofed house

This is my LO for this month.... or visit the ARTastic Challenge Blog to be inspired with my fellow DT...

Notes: The gazebo at my back is my inspiration. The photo was taken 10 years ago at Botanical Garden Singapore. T'was our first trip outside the country and it was indeed so memorable.


Hope you can join the fun...
