scrapping with friends

I got a text message from Lee sometime last week asking me if i wanted to come along and scrap with them at Pia's house (in Dasma, Cavite) today. did i? hmmm. i'm so used to scrapping on my own but thought maybe it would be fun to scrap with a small group for a change. needless to say, i decided to go.

i asked Lee where she was going to meet up with the other girls and she said they planned on doing so at MOA! ACK!!!!! i figured i was better off heading straight to cavite on my own, but Lee suggested maybe it would be more fun if we carpooled using her van; and so we tried to brainstorm on a more favorable meeting place at least as far as i was concerned! haha! (it was also around this time I discovered that there was a change in destination. we were now going to Alby's in Kawit, instead!)

for some strange reason, i got up at around 4am, and since I wasn't able to pack up last night, i decided to do so right away. I looked at possible sketches for the LOs I planned to work on today and proceeded to pick out papers and stuff. at the last minute, i decided to pre-cut my papers so that i'd only be gluing them down once we started scrapping later today.

Lee, Nina, Cookie and I met up at McDonald's Las Pinas at around 1045AM and we finally got to Alby's place (lovely, lovely home indeed) a little past 11. we set our stuff down and got comfortable ;) Pia joined us not long after. lunch was yummy! after a short chit-chat session, we set out to scrap! we were so engrossed in the chicka, for a moment there we forgot all about making pages, hahaha!!!

oh joy! as i declared, i was able to complete 4 pages and then some (i just need to add a photo, a title, and journaling to the page i intend to submit for the KAYA challenge for this month. i even got to finish up tubbyboy's mini! we ended up having dinner at Alby's place as well and eventually packed up at around 930PM.

Thank you, Alby and Ariel, for your hospitality! and thanks for the ride, Lee! Had fun chatting with you, Nina and Cookie as well! Whoa, and thanks for the special prize, Nina! that was really quick! and i love it!!
