Christmas Party

We celebrated our Christmas Party the same day we celebrated Issa's birthday last Monday, December 15. After our pictorial and gift giving for Issa's birthday, we changed our headresses to Santa's hats.

Chiqui hosted two games - Unscramble the letters and Name the paper manufacturer, won by Rita and Issa, respectively. Helga also hosted another game...Charade. We were divided into two groups: Cors, Rita and Chiqui as one group and Liezl, Ytet and myself as another group. Issa was our ever reliable timer and photographer. Cors and Liezl were the ones who acted out the ten Christmas-related words prepared by Helga. In the end, our group won with eight out of ten correct answers. We were all bursting with laughter as Cors and Liezl reenacted Christmas words like hamon, quezo de bola, panunuluyan, fruit salad...

Here are some fun scenes during the game:

Our actresses:

Cors: T is for Tagalog...

Liezl: Ha ha ha ha

And the guessers...

Of course, no party would be complete without the food. Issa bought our main dishes including tuna pesto, chicken cordon blu and spicy chicken salad while the rest of us took care of the dessert (Red Ribbon Mango Cream Pie Cake and Leche flan) and drinks.

We also had our exchange gift ala PS-SE style. We didn't buy our gifts instead we just put P250 worth of scrapbooking items together from our stash. Not only that, we also copied PS-Se's 7 steps to your left, 10 steps to your right and so on and so forth...

Here are some more photos during our celebration:

It was indeed a funfilled day for the LBS! We're so happy to be given the chance to celebrate Christmas in the company of one another.

Thanks for looking,

PS-SE Party...

Timi, Chiqui, Cheche and I attended the most awaited Christmas Party of Pinoy Scrapbookers and Scrapbook Exchange family! We came late, but what caught my attention upon signing up was the HUMAN BINGO paper. The rule was to have the scrappers signed it according to the list on the paper. Then for the stores, you have to have a purchase of atleast P50 so that the store owner will sign the bingo. What touched our hearts was this... everyone was waiting for the LB girls! Oh its just a signature, but it was so nice of them to include us in the bingo requirement. Salamat po sa Pinoy Scrapbookers at Scrapbook Exchange coordinators! Para sa amin, mahal nyo ang mga tiga-LB!

Will post later for the other happenings... do you know that we won in the "dress up a mannequin", with the every great BJay and Ems Foronda!

October and November Celebrants' Celebration...

The months of October and November are party time for the Scrapaholics...Yup! because it's Timi's birthday on October 12, Ytet on the 14th, Chiqui on the 18th, Helga on November 1 and Cors on the 15th. So much to celebrate kahit super delayed na ang parties. We planned for a "cook and crop" party! Ytet and I cooked on the spot, taught the LB mommies to make my Blue Marlin Garlic Steak and Ytet's Cream Dory fish and Tofu with black beans ala Chowking style and a real-mouth watering Nachos and Salsa dip. Helga made her famous Spanish Sardines pasta, Chiqui got the best Okoy from Helga's Auntie and Cors got sweets from Goldilocks. Party na hindi ba...

The October ladies gave us an apron to decorate for their party give-away... same pack of embellishments but look, each of us has our own style.

Here's another group picture while opening gifts... that's baby Ike with Helga!

After the scrumptious lunch, we cropped! The November ladies gave us a kit for a mini-calendar notebook.

It was a jam-packed day from 11 in the morning until about pass 6 in the evening. A day of celebrations and bonding again! Thanks for the wonderful day...

First Crop
Here's our first weekend crop last June 7 at Dra. Chiqui's place... the instructions were as follows: scrap on a plain cardstock for the base paper, 75% white space, use stamps, use at least 5 buttons, and use a metal embellishment. Present during the crop were Timi, ate Liezl, Helga, Dra. Chiqui and myself. Dra. Rita was on house arrest that time, but she still made a layout later.

Rita's layout... Silly

Issa's page... the other page of Nature Trip.

Timi's layout...The Little Prince

Second Crop
Our second weekend crop was held in my place last June 21... Following Helga's BINGO card instructions, we have to scrap a page with the following: use transparency, use 5 different fonts for the title, use stamps, use plain white cardstock for the base paper and use at least 1 black and white photo. Everybody came but so sorry we didn't have a photo to share. Here are our finished layouts... TFL!

Timi's layout... My Childhood Memories

Issa's page... Discover

Rita's layout...This Boy
