Happy 12th Birthday Austin!

Today is Austin's 12th Birthday. Gosh, I can't believe it's already been 12 years since I held him in my arms for the first time. He's grown pretty tall now, just less than an inch shorter than I am and is graduating from elementary school next week!

The photo above is taken last night when Austin finally got his much awaited gift, a Wowwee Roboquad. He was waiting for this for quite a while and when his Di-ee gave him money enough to buy one, he couldn't wait to get his hands on one of the robots. We went to Toys R Us last week but it was out of stock. I tried calling Kidz Station yesterday and good thing there's stocks available.

Happy birthday my dear Austin and Congratulations! You make us proud! Love you!

Nikki Sivils Day

We had a very enjoyable scrapping day last Feb. 20 at Ria's house which was dubbed as "Nikki Sivils Day". Ria, our ever gracious host, generously shared us her excess papers from Nikki Sivils as well as her scraps which we turned into works of art. I was able to make 4 LOs using Nikki Sivils stuff and 2 more finished LOs as well as a partially finished one. I still haven't taken photos of the other 3 non-Nikki Sivils LO and 1 Nikki Sivils layout but I will soon! Meanwhile, here's what I have made using Nikki Sivils:

I found some Halloween photos of Austin and his cousins in my boxful of photos and decided to scrap them. I think Austin was around 7 years old when this was taken. When we showed the layouts to David, he insisted it was him in the photos! That's how much David and Austin looks alike that sometimes both of them get confused too!

My yaya is a trigger happy person when it comes to taking pictures, that even if I'm not home most of the time due to work, I still got tons of unscrapped photos of David. Yaya keeps on asking if I had already have the photos developed (which I still have not done yet). David is comfortable even when yaya asks him to pose for the camera.

I had fun using Nikki Sivils' products! They are so easy to work with! Thanks Ria for sharing your scraps with us!

Some more layouts

Here are some more layouts I made over the month

I used WRMK's Geohectic paper for this one. I made this in less than 30 minutes and I love the outcome of this very simple layout. I got the flower and the vine embellishment from Morning Glory.

David loves to make faces when his yaya takes photos of him and of course, being his mom, I can't get enough of it! So here's another layout with his many facial expressions. I used WRMK Geohectic and White Out Explore papers.

What I love about Graphic 45 papers is that despite the fact that they are vintage, their colors still pop out. I mixed Jillibean staples paper here.

Materials for the above layouts are available at Lasting Impression

Book of ABC

My sister, May Ann gave David a set of alphabet flash cards. In order to prevent losing the cards, I decided to do what Cabbie did with her set of flash cards for her kids....bind them.

More layouts

Here's 2 more layouts I made a few weeks ago.

This one is a photo of Meng and Me during our day trip to Tagaytay. I used Jillibean staples and Fancy Pants' Vintage love papers.

The photo on this layout was also taken on the same day while Meng and I were at Gourmet's Cafe. I was playing around with my camera when I took this photo. This cellphone was been very useful for Meng since he got it because he could always check for his emails and surf the net through his phone. Nowadays, I usually catch him on his cell talking to clients no matter what day or time it is. Having your own business usually means you're on call 24/7 in case some issues arrives that needs to be addressed immediately. But then, it has been Meng's dream to have his own business. So far, things have been picking up with meetings scheduled for prospect clients almost everyday. He's quite stressed out these days, but happy with the chance to introduce his products to prospective clients. We hope and pray everything will work out for Cid Systems.

Bea and Lala had a joint birthday treat last February 5 at Lasting Impression using Prima's Kit for a Cause. Iris made a demo on how she made her sample layout using the kits materials and afterwards, I fell in love with glimmer mists, alcohol inks and stickles! Thanks Bea and Lala for this wonderful treat and thanks Iris for teaching us!
