Belated Birthday Gifts Keep Coming

"Congratulations, your layout has been selected to appear in our on-line
gallery at! We appreciate your time and talent and
thank you for using BasicGrey papers and embellishments."
Another birthday gift!

If I am going to count my scrapbooking accomplishments for this month of October,my birth month then I may say that it's really a lucky month for me. I won in the card-making contest sponsored by MLA during the Scrapfest 4 plus I won two raffle prizes (Early Bird and Regular raffle). I won another contest at APIY. The same LO I created for my first "My Sketch World" Diva Designer stint was also chosen by Basic Grey to be part of their gallery. I feel so lucky!!!

Last Sunday, October 14 was the Christening of Baby Ike, Gee and Helga's first-born. Of course, lahat ng LB Scrapaholics ninang - Rita, Liezl, Issa, Cors and myself. So it's official, magkukumare na kami! This special event was held at St. Therese Parish, College, Laguna. Reception was in a resort in Asiaville, Bay, Laguna. To Baby Ike, welcome to the Christian World! May you grow up to be a good boy.

Belated Birthday Gift

I celebrated my 37th birthday last Friday, October 12 and I received two unexpected gifts - first, I was accepted as a Designer Diva in MY SKETCH WORLD and second, I won another contest at A Peek into Yesterday with the theme "My Favorite Outfit". That means another $25 gift certificate! Yipee!!!

Here is my first project at My Sketch World following Lucy Chesna's second sketch for the month of October:

And here is my winning entry at APIY entitled Tale of the Lady in Red:

I'd also would like to share my journaling ala fairy tale style:

Once upon a time, there was a lady named Timi who hated the color red. Anything red she disliked – red clothes, red shoes, red bags, anything red! She vowed that she would never wear anything that was red. She found this color too loud for her personality, too glaring and too flashy. For a time, she was into browns and dark blues.
One day, when she was shopping for clothes, she noticed this red blouse, as if inviting her to try it on. She tried it on and it fitted her just right. To her surprise, it looked beautiful on her. With that red blouse on, her face glowed. It put the sweetest smile on her lips like never before. That was the first red blouse she bought and wore. From then on, whenever she shopped for clothes she would always consider red, a color she used to hate but learned to love. And now if you look at her closet you will find more of reds than any other color!

Joanne Yap's Visit!

Joanne Yap visited us yesterday... nakonsensya daw sya because of Cors, the look on Cors' face made her realized that she had to come visit us her in Los Banos. First stop was my house, she had a little breakfast with Timi and I. Then Dra. Rita, Ate Liezl and Cors came to meet her. Then we went to Helga's place and had champorado and dilis on the side. And a little bonding with Baby Ike. It was play time again, so we went naman to Dra. Rita's place and played with Joanne's autumn leaves clear stamps. Ate Liezl's phone was alarming us to finally stop and have lunch. So, we fly naman to Palaisdaan in Bay! After the chats and picture taking, goodbye time came next with matching CRYING!

We will never forget the first time we met Joanne, she gave us a very warm welcome during the first ever scrapfest and from then on she became close to us. We vowed not to miss any scrapfest. That warm feeling never fade but instead gets warmer and deeper as time goes by. It's really hard to say goodbye to a dear Friend! But I know, we will still see you... we have to see you again!
