Mother's Day Card

  I made a cute cute Mother's day card for my mom.  I used DCWV papers, American Crafts for the white cardstock.  Die cuts are from Ime.  She brings her dies and I cut cut away using foam.  The foam is pretty when you add acrylic paint on it.  Resins are avalable from scraphappy on Facebook.   I used flowers from Prima and from my bestfriend Katcho.
  I used an Alli stamp for the bottom.  The sentiment is just so perfect.
  The message is:  Mom, love you and all that you bring to my life everyday.
  I know that this Magnolia stamp is for easter.  But it's so cute!  And the message of nurturing, taking care of your chicks.  It's there.
 Give your mom some love in the coming days.

Organizing Trinkets

I am constantly looking for my things,  and if I can't find it, I end up buying again.  Knowing full well, I already have it.

So I need to get better organized.  

I purchased this case on sale.  I only found one,  would have been better if I was able to purchase a couple.
I organize my card things here.  Flowers for cards,  beads, etc.  Small stuff that can be lost in the shuffle.

I love this divided case for my cameos, colored resins and metal charms.
This is how I store my various shaped  resins.  
Believe me this is better, I used to store them in a box.

Week 4

  I was rushing to edit this picture and send this to Sunshine, so that the hubby and I could spend Easter Sunday at Maxim's Tower.  Who knew that it was a fuzzy picture?  Nevertheless, with help of friends, this lay out won in week 4!
  Over all, it was Donna Ong who won Summer Make More Memories.  She deserved it.  She is my idol!  She is so creative and talented!
  It was fun joining idols.  It makes you think.  It makes you search your scraps.  No way am I purchasing more!    But after a while,  the pressure can be grating.
    Thank goodness the title went to someone with genuine talent.  With popularity contests,  you never know.  The prize can be won by a truly uninspired person with lots of friends.

Summer Scrap

I drove all the way to Alabang,  it took me an hour and a half to get there.  
So I could meet up Shine and her Southern girls to scrap.
It doesn't matter where, but scrapping is always fun.
Smile!  A cute lay out of my nieces.
I used remnants of an old die cut paper from a Studio Calico kit.
I am still finishing an old Echo Park sticker sheet.
One good thing about being on a scrap budget is that you look at what you have and use them.
Talk about digging deep!

Just us 2.
Me and a toddler Corinne.
I purchased a paper from Shine for 15 pesos,  and that is the huge bunch of flowers I used in this lay out.  Resins galore on this lay out.

Scrapping an awesome picture of my hubby using Bazzill Basics Paper.

  I won a prize for most lay outs made!  Thanks Sunshine!  Thanks also to Mel Tiglao for providing pictures of the lay outs.
