Little Boys

All my little boys lay outs are now up. I mixed them with whatever boys papers I have on hand.

I just look at Echo Park's Facebook page and look for designs I would like to copy. And here are some of the lay outs I was able to do last night.
Boatride was taken in Bangkok. Bunny and I traveled to the outskirts to see the market place on top of the klongs. If you watch Bangkok Dangerous , the marketplace is also featured there.

Brave is a rare picture of my Bunny handling a snake in Singapore. Clever work on distressing. I used Spiced Marmalade and my fave Vintage Photo
An old Pic of dad, Raymond and Harley doing target practice. Picture was taken from my Veranda.
This photo is of my nephew Jonathan. This was his first trip to the Philippines. And we boarded a plane in SF, which made a detour to Canada. This is him, playing on top of the doll house in the airport in Canada. Boys will be boys is proudly scraplifted from April.
This is a great pic of Corinne and Miguel, meeting up when they were both babies. I just used a template to hand cut the paper. And put it on top of white paper, and used stamp border scissors for that tiny ruffle. EK punch used on the right.

A picture of my Bunny and nephew Yohji goofing off in Manila Ocean Park. I used crackle paint on Karen's Tim Holtz die cuts, and swiped black ink on top to accentuate the cracks.


Sorry for the silence. I've been busy surfing online, fantasizing, and obsessing about Martha Stewart Punches. Now that there is a shortage in Manila, they are the only things that occupy my mind right now.
Here a couple of lay outs I scraplifted from Vivian. She picks lay outs online, and we try to emulate them. At least nababawasan ang mga hoard.

Now with regards to copying a lay out per se, sometimes, I don't want to buy na embelishments, when I can make do with what I have naman. The love, was taken from DCWV, since I didn't want to buy na. And I also used some scraps. That copper trim naman was from Karen, she was raving about this trims place in Tutuban Center. The doily lace naman is from Sharon. Yes, it sure is handy to have scrap addict friends, who are as addict as me.

Working on a couple

The lay out on top was done using left overs from the Cosmo Cricket kit. I was teaching Corinne how to steer the animal. I think we did this when she was around 2.

The lay out on the bottom, I used Pink Paislee paper which I distressed. Karen's Tim Holtz die. Some trimmings and some paint.

Scrap Buffet

I just love Scrap Buffets! Make as many lay outs you can make. All you need to bring is your tools and your scissors.
I only made 4 lay outs. The others made as many as 8. I was going for quality rather than quantity.

My winning entry. Pardon the mess, I forgot to edit the lay out.
My Prize.
Scrap Buffet cost 200 per person. Sana lagi may ganito. So much fun!

A Great Start

And we are off to a good start. First off, here is my submission to the Challenge by Iris.
And here are the lay outs, we made in the class. Very Pretty!
