Shoes First

Tomorrow we will go to the mall and one of the things I am buying is a sandals. I love this vegan shoes that I saw online and I hope there is one like these at our local mall. I love collecting shoes but scrapbooking comes first on my lists that is why nowadays I have fewer and fewer shoes. huhuhuhu! So this time I am buying what I love before scrapbooking. I won't pass by educational stores specially National so that i won't buy scrapbooking supplies tomorrow. LOL!


I used the new kit of Susan Bartolini a.k.a ScrapKitchen Designs which is the That’s my Daddy Kit available at

Enjoy viewing and be inspired!

I made this for fathers day in June. I might print and give this to Jun.

Happy Father’s Day Hon!

This is for my brother in Kuwait. He is such a loving and dedicated father.

Advance Happy Fathers Day Bro! Hope you like this!

This is not a fathers day LO. I made this for the One Word challenge in SSD.

I love this kit a lot I made 3 LO’s yesterday.

Thanks Susan for making this! You are amazing!


I did the laundry today. Gosh I had a lot!!!! Mountains already! hihiihih!

I read scrapbook magazine as the I wait for the beep of the washing machine telling me that it is finished already. I had to load 4 laundry... waaahhhh!!! I saw a lot of great LO's in that magazine that I am reading and I told myself that I can also do that. I already marked the pages that I am scraplifting. I learned a lot from that magazine today. The one LO that caches me the most is the LO about her visit to Rome. And her photos of the Rome hotels are amazing! I am so in love with the photos. I hope to go there soon too. I will surely bring my camera so that I can also share it via scrapbooking. Rome is my long time dream to go to. It is so nice to see beautiful photos on the net.

Ok enough day dreaming! Today I arrived late here at my parents house because of the laundry. I have a lot of emails. Lots of things going on in my yahoo groups huh! I also need to work and do some photo editing. Waaahhh... I need a break! Maybe go somewhere???? Mall??? maybe... Sigh!

Model for a Day

I just wanna share this photo that I took last time to all of you.

This is my sister a.k.a my model. She is so photogenic and I am so proud of her. She is so natural right?

Here are my photos:

She was just fitting mom’s dress on her bedroom and I said to come out and do a photo shoot. She put on her shoes and there we go to moms garden. And I was clicking away because she is such a good model. I had a great time shooting and editing these pictures. Thanks sis!

Double Dutch

:: Double Dutch Reloaded::

Dad bought this yummy ice cream this morning. He just had a root canal on his teeth and eating ice cream will lesses the pain I think? hihihiihi! This is so yummy! Not my favorite though but this will do for my craving for sweets. :)

Silver Investment

I was just thinking of how do I save more in the future. I need to secure my family and also myself. If ever I will have three kids I will surely need a lot of money for their needs, clothing, toys, and most specially education. I want my kids to value education because it is very important. I saw this about getting a silver as a form of investment site that I think is a good way of preparing for the future. Who knows money won't value anything already in the future right. But silver will always be silver and gold will always be gold. I want to try investing silvers also. I wanna try this kind of saving money. In that way I won't be tempted to withdraw it and buy stuffs which is not really important. So I am bookmarking this site of Monex Deposit Company (MDC) because soon I will be having silver on my hands. Good Luck to me!


I so love this berries. This is part of my childhood. We have a tree of that on our old house and the time we moved to our own house I was wishing that it has that tree but sad to say that it doesn’t have one. But one afternoon as I was cleaning the backyard I saw one tree growing. And I know that tree!!!! It is the Berries!!!! I am so happy. This berries came from our backyard and it tastes sweet and yummy! Sana makatikim kau nito. :)


I used the Emma’s Kit by ScrapKitchen Designs.

Love the colors of this kit. My favorite colors.

I also love this photo of me and Jun.

Savings Account

My sister is opening a savings account next week. She needs to open an account for her job. She is on freelance right now since she is a fresh graduate. She will do online writing assignments. The management said she needs to have a saving account so she is accomplishing all of the requirements and going to the bank to open an account. Good Luck to her!

I’m tagging everyone on my blogroll. :)

LO Share: At the Beach, Baby Boy

These are my latest digiscraps. Just made this today. These are for my CT’s. I need to keep up with the responsibilities. :grin:

Credits can be found here.

Thank you so much for looking! :grin:

I am here!

Scrapping, checking emails, chatting and reading blog updates. I am sorry for not blogging that much. I am so lazy to compose a message. :roll:

Hubby is not here yet but soon he will come home. I miss him badly! :cry: I sometimes cry at night because of loneliness. I miss him and Huey. But what can I do? He is so far away and busy with work. So all I have to do to keep me busy is do what I love which is scrapping. I’ve been on a scrapping roll. I will share y latest later.

I haven’t visited home since yesterday. Blame it on the transport strike here in Bicol. There was no jeepney. Even one… none at all! So I have to go back here at my parents house to sleep. Will just go home tomorrow.

Mother's Day Pics

Here are the pictures of the mother's day celebration at the beach last sunday.

With my sister, sister in law and our maids daughter.

Me and my sister.

Mom, my niece Liit, Me and my brother.

I enjoyed celebrating mother’s day with my family.

Watch for Me

I had a hard time catching up on TV shows because I always forgot what time slot they are airing. For example the America's Next Top Model, and a lot of shows that I love on ETC. I am always late for dates with my friends and sometimes with my husband. What is happening to me. I am never like this. I am always on time and hated being late. I remember when I was still in High School I even got a no absent, no late award. LOL!!! Gosh! I think I better get that Milus Watches that I am eyeing for a month now. I think it is suited to me so that I will be on time again. LOL! Just look at the beautiful color of the photo above. Isn't that gorgeous? This is a wow for me. I never had red watch before and I think it is time to get one. This is fashionable and beautiful! I totally love it. So if you also want this watch you can check out this site Or maybe would like to give me that as a gift? I will surely accept that with out hesitation. LOL!

Happy shopping!

Celebrate Life

Last Mothers Day we went to the beach. It is also the 50th birthday of my sister in law's father. As we were heading to the beach we also saw the car of my cousin. Mom texted her sister which is the mother of my cousin where they are heading. They said it is somewhat a retreat for their sisters and brothers in church. I am so happy that there are group like that. I mean they are so dedicated to God and even share events like that. We would love to join them but my sister in law's family are expecting us so we passed in joining them. But if they will go on a Christian Cruises I will surely come with them. I think it will help me know God more and celebrate a special day with the creator.

I am a believer and I think it is right to give Him thanks at least for a week of Christian Cruise and celebrate his wonderful blessings.

This Christian Cruises are a very good way of celebrating life. Thanking God for every blessing that he gave us and praising him. This is very good way of vacation for families. So if ever I will be invited to join in this Christian Cruises I will surely go and bring all of my family also.

Guess the Baby of Amore Contest

My friend Amore is having a “Guess the Baby” contest on her blog.

You can check out her blog here.

Be sure to post your guess on her comment section of the post because the deadline is on May 8th, Thursday, Pacific Time (actual drawing is on Friday).

Good Luck to all those who will join!!!

CT Layouts

Here are my CT LO’s for ScrapKitchen Designs. Love her designs a lot! So lucky to be on her team. :D

My LO using the Free kit at My Scrapbook Art during the NSD Celebration.

ScrapKitchen is one of the designers who made the kit.

My first LO using her products as a CT. I used the Sugar High Kit by ScrapKitchen Designs and Lauren Grier. I love the colors of this kit. Purple is my favorite!

My favorite LO as of the moment. I love how funky this LO turned out. The kit was amazing! I used the Chillaxin Kit here, a Triple Dip by ScrapKitchen Designs, Melissa Bennett and Eva Kipler.

I made this for the Speed Scrap Challenge at SSD. You have to scrap with a template in an hour. I made it to the deadline but didn’t win. LOL! I also used the Chillaxin Kit here. The template was based on the LO by Jacq here.

Vacation Time!

Yay it is already summer and it only means that we need a vacation or simply a getaway place. I am thinking of baguio but hubby is always there whenever there are tours. My next option is Palawan but hubby said that there is nothing much that I will enjoy there. So I think our own place is that best place to discover. Bicol region is a very nice place but hubby and I haven't discovered that. Even if we lived here all our lives. LOL! I wish we can go outside the Philippines but we have no money saved for it for now. Going abroad for travels needs a lot of cash allowance right so that needs a lot of planning. And I want to try Branson getaways packages if ever I will go outside the Philippines. I think it will be more easier for us if I will consult the site. They have a lot of choices and vacation packages so it will be easier for us to pick the best place to have a vacation. If you want to go on a vacation be sure to check out Branson getaways' site ok?

Stair Lift

When we went to Los Banos last time for the graduation of my sister there is one thing that I noticed, my uncle is having a hard time going upstairs. He is 70+ already I think. I pity him and I think he needs to install stair lifts on their house. It will be much easier for him to go to his bedroom if they have it. Being old is like that and any help that will make their life easier will be very much appreciated right. So this stair lift that I saw online is prefect for him.

NSD Loot

I had a lot of FUN during the NSD last May 3. Participating in challenges although I didn’t win a thing. ahahhahah! I stayed mostly at Sweet Shoppe Designs forum because that place is so cool! My favorite store and my favorite hanging out forum. My paypal got hurt also this NSD. I purchased a lot of stuffs!!! LOL!

But I am happy! This only means time to scrap!!! Yay! I need to scrap those photos I took with my D80.


Party Invitations

I love love love doing party invitations. I have done a lot of invitations for my cousins son and daughters, to my friends and even to my nephew's second birthday and niece's baptism. I enjoyed doing this and I never ask for payment from them. I am happy to help my family through this. So are you also a party invitation maker? Share your works to me ok so that I can also get ideas from them. Can't wait to see them!

Inspiration to be thin again!

I am so tired already of wishing to be thin again just like what my body was in college. And I am not working out to achieve the body that I want. All I do was to eat and eat and eat!!!!!! What is happening to me!!!!! So what I did was to search for inspirations to my will of losing weight. I found this leptovox reviews inspiring! I want to try this one out but I need to consult my husband for this. Will blog if I tried this one.

I love flowers a lot!

1. DSC_0536, 2. DSC_0537, 3. DSC_0540, 4. DSC_0539, 5. DSC_0535, 6. DSC_0541 copy, 7. DSC_0156, 8. DSC_0550

This was taken from my Nikon D80 camera when we visited Los Baños, Laguna last April 26th. I had a lot of fun shooting those beautiful flowers.

Giftie for my sis

Gosh! I haven't bought any gift for my sister who graduated last April from college! What will I do??? I need to find a perfect gift online because that is my only way to get a gift right now. Hubby is not around so I can't go to the Mall. Hmmmm... I am still surfing.... Oh I found it!!!!! This book entitled A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose s the best! My sister wants this since she saw it on the bookstores but didn't bought it since it was too pricey for her. And wow it is on sale right now! I better get this and make my sister happy.


I need to get a life insurance quote already. Am I on the right track? Should I really get it now? I am still confused. I will ask hubby about this and if he agrees then I will make my move. Yah I am respecting the decision of my husband. He is the king on our little castle so I should consult him first. I never decide alone and it is not my thing to go and make my move without the permission and consent of my husband. We are married and two heads are better than one right? So I shoul wait for my husband first.


Hubby is not at home right now. He is supervising the tour of the social work students of Bicol University to Manila. He said they are going to a lot of institutions that is in the itinetary of the tour. And that includes drug rehabs and other centers for treatment and rehabilitation. These students are brought there to learn how the institution works and if someday they will work there they will know how their work will become.

What I am

This is FUN! Try it also ok?

New Paper Scrapbook

I made a new paper scrapbook LO, nope not a digital one. It’s been a while since I made a page with real papers and embellies. It feels great to finally touch the scissors and get messy again with the glue.

You can view the LO on my other blog here >>> My Paper Scraps Blog.

Thanks for Looking in Advance!

The Box

Mom was an ukay-ukay seller before. I love browsing through piles and piles of clothes and even things when she is opening a box. I can get lots of stuffs in those boxes. What I love most is that it is free. I don't have to pay! LOL! I remeb=mber when mom put out a large box and when she opened it I was amazed by the things I saw because it was full of toys! I got to get what I like first and then she will sell it. I was so shocked when I saw an old Callaway irons there too. It is so nice but the handle was already damaged so I didn't get it. It was fun to see different stuff in that box.

LO Share: Los Baños

Finally a LO. This is a new photo. This was taken on our short vacation in Los Baños.

Credits here.


I have this eye glasses since I was in Grade 5 and wearing an eyeglasses at a very young age was such a pain to me. My classmates and friends kept on teasing me on wearing one. And I am not comfortable wearing it at school. I tried wearing a contact lens but I am not good at taking care of it so it dried up when I forgot to replace the solution for it. My friends suggested to me to have a Lasik surgery. I am so afraid of it. maybe I'll try it when I gain strength. Oh when will that happen. I am such a scary cat! But I am still open to it.
