weekend crop

i was invited by my online friend Suzanne to join her over at Citrus Tree for a fun online crop this past weekend.

Lots of fun tutorials and challenges. Unfortunately, inasmuch as I wanted to join them all, I simply did not find the time to squeeze them all in :(

Here's what I managed to put together in between comings and goings around the house:

Origami Christmas tree. I really had fun playing with this one

I thought this was a clever sentiment to put on the inside. heh!

Then I decided to make a cute matchbook, if I dare say so myself :D

I didn't realize I didn't have a 'just a note' sentiment around the house! eek! hmm. or maybe I was just really lazy to look for one. So I got 2 sentiment stamps and simply inked the words that I wanted out of each of them. voila! just a note. problem solved!

Color combo challenge was up next. I decided to go for more cards since I already had some holiday elzys out on my table.

While I was at it, I decided to make 2 more per design. Now these, I will definitely be sending on to Ems Fronda. Remember the charity drive?

Early Saturday evening, we all went out and hit one of the local weekend bazaars, which wiped my pocketbook clean :D, then we headed over to Tiendesitas to look at some adorable pups. Too bad I forgot to take some photos.

Sunday - whipped up a batch of delightful coffee oatmeal cookies. i was even gonna go for some butter cake, but I realized too late that I didn't have enough butter in the fridge. hm. maybe sometime this week then.
sorry, photo's kinda grainy. i was too lazy to run for the camera so I quickly grabbed my cellphone before 2 pairs of tiny hands (+ a pair of big ones) could wipe the cooling rack clean :)

G and I decided to check out some tiles at the home depot and we're kinda set on this for the bath. whatcha think?

So there you have it. Enjoy the rest of the week!

getting some groove on

been itching to play for quite some time and sketch challenges are a good excuse as any to put together a couple of cards :)

I was initially going to forward these to Ems Fronda to help out a little girl with cancer, but then I just remembered that they are requesting for 4x4 cards. Methinks I'm going to have to get back to the scrap table :) in the meantime, I will be offering up prayers for the good health and well-being of Charmaine.

anybody else being crafty this weekend?

tag, you're it!

delayed post as usual :D

check out Studio Azul's May kit

i thought i was not going to have as much fun with it as i do with the other kits because of the sassafras papers (not a big fan here)... but surprise, surprise! i did! haha. i was able to complete 7 pages and i'm raring to make more - there's still lots of leftover papers, embellishments and ephemera :)

thanks so much for looking. will be posting more pages using the other kits soon :) hope you all have a great weekend. i'm stuck in bed as i haven't been feeling well :(

scrappy goodness

remember this post?

at last, it finally happened!

after foregoing sleep to put together 7 sample LOs (will post them soon!), i set out to meet up with Mia.

the event was scheduled to start at 900H but we arrived at the venue by 830H. thought we still had some time to help take care of a few loose ends, but wow! some scrappers got a better head start than we did! HAHA! why am I not surprised?

needless to say, put 50 something scrappers around scrappy goodness, coupled with Tin's flair for event-organizing, and what do you get? a day of a roaring great time!

i must confess, i was so envious of the girls who got to sit down and do some serious scrapping. collectively, these girls were able to complete 300+ pages, not counting the cards and mini albums. whoa. talk about scrapping mojo, huh?

L-R Sym, Cabbie, Lee, Tin, Me, Mia, Candy, Au, Nita

on behalf of studio azul, thank you so much to everyone who joined us!

special shout out to Mitch, for sponsoring the prizes, and of course, to the PS Mods :D
