This is my first attempt to join the traditional LO for KAYA challenge. My previous one was made through digital one. When I heard about ephemera, there is no turning point to back off. I love ephemera, simply because I love to keep and treasure anything that can remind me of something in the past. Memories should be cherished for a lifetime.

Message in the card from hubby, Erwin

To my dearest Love Joy,
This is our 3rd valentine together as a couple. During these wonderful 3 years, there's been ups and downs on our relationship, but still I thank God that we are still together. Sometimes I hurt you (which i don't know), but you still bear it with me. I'm so happy that we are still together by
loving each other and you're being thoughtfulness. I'm so bless for having you as my wife and hopefully, God willingly mother of our children. I love you so much. I hope our stay here at Makati Shangrila will be the most memorable valentine day. MWAH!!!


My response to his message:
I thank God for giving me a lifetime partner like you. You are the reason for everything. You complete me.

Scrappin Moms Idol Challenge - Elimination Round

This is the layout I made for the Scrappin Moms Idol Challenge. I really don't want to join this challenge, but since Joanne Yap is one of the few scrappers who introduce me well about the techniques regarding this expensive hobby.

Title: A New Toy
Name of my idol: Leah Fung

Why I pick Ms. Leah Fung?

I choose her simple because she is Filipino and family oriented. Her scrapbook style is down to earth, pleasing to the eye, and with a design style that's sure to last for a lifetime. Since I'm into cross-stitching, I love sewing my LO also. Same as my idol, I like to use different pattern papers to mix and match. Less embellishments and more on papers.

HOTF Sarapapers Vintage Paper & Embellishments, Carla Craft Punch, Kaleidoscope Die Cuts, Reeves Glittered Glue, Stabilo Pen, 3M Double Sided Tape, Glue Dots, Stitched Ribbons, and Yellow Buttons
There’s nothing like a new toy to pre-occupy you. It's no wonder you wanted to buy this gadget so you can while away the time relaxing and enjoying your favorite music and video.

Welcome To World Baby Bennet

My sister in law Joan gave birth to my 2nd "pamangkin" from my side. He was so cute like his brother, my inaanak Tyler. I'm so happy for you Joan, after all the trials that your family had been through, God still shower you with a wonderful blessings. I thank God for guiding you during your entire pregnancy. Hopefully and God willingly, I'm next in line to get pregnant. Miss our long talks.

P.S. Don't quit scrapbooking. It's fun and addictive once you started to work on your layout. Go girl and try it.

Digital LO for our 10th Inaanak

Ivie Nyrelle

I made these layouts for our "inaanak". Ivie Nyrelle will be celebrating her 1st birthday and christening. Her parents are Norson and I-Chun Adiong. Since I'm into digital scrapbooking, I decided that this will be a nice gift for her. The 8 layouts took me 2 weeks to finish them.
