dear Philippines...

I miss you so much.  I want to see you again soon...

Photos we took at Panglao Island, Bohol are perfect for Websters Pages Yacht Club papers. I just added some Prima flowers, trims, buttons, dew drops and doodled some notes :) This is for Creative Scrappers sketch # 167 by Jill Sarginson.

... you'll be seeing more of our vacation photos in the next many layouts I will be making! Thank you for looking! Hugs :) 

new class!

Presenting... my new offering this August! COUNTRY DRIVE! 
A super fun class using the whole pack of Echo Park's Country Drive collection. Be able to play with acrylic and crackle paints, finish lots and lots of sweet layered pages, with crocheted flowers, laces and ribbons ... and be amazed by your ability to make these 3 mini-albums from scratch!

... and if in case you missed my other class CAPTURE THE MOMENT, 

... there's 1 slot this month! 
A wonderful album to hold your huge stashes of seemingly ordinary yet immensely precious photos because it is these little moments that make life big! Using Maya Road and Bo Bunny's Ad Lib collection, finish 20 (yes, twenty!) 8x8 layouts in 3 hrs! And have a raving good time playing with paints, mists and dimension to your pages using sizzix dies, glossy accents, stickles, washi tapes and Maya Road embellishments!

Visit Made With Love  or call 6238 8770 for class schedules and registration. Thank you! :) 

I'm back!

... from a very lovely vacation!
This one really made me appreciate the beauty of my beloved country, particularly Bohol. I promise to be back with my family and visit more places soon. My heart is heavy with homesickness the minute we left. But I am excited and happy that I brought with me loads of sweet memories with old and new friends.
We took a million photos. So many it overwhelms me! Making me not touch it yet which explains why  this post relies on my iphone instagram shots. hahah!

... to these yumminess waiting for me!
 (thank you Crate Paper! and BB for my [and Kuya's] new toy!) :):):)

... with these two good boys who missed their toys so much they
 forgot to fight! lol! what a precious time! :)

Now if you'll excuse me please as I need to finish a layout that's due NOW (i forgot!!!). Kisses! :)

all dressed-up

Right now, I'm having a coffee date with dear hubby, right here at the Queen City of the South. While kids are playing at My Playroom :)

This layout, which I made before vacation started, is for Creative Scrappers sketch 165. I used my favorite dress form die from Sizzix and some fun photos with Maggie :)

Missing two homes :( Block 687a and Cherry St... but I also love the fact that we are right now in our very first home, at Eastland, which Miguel calls "the small house" haha!
