I made this layout last week for my friend Escie, who's getting married this October. The pictures I used are from her engagement shoot with Redefine Weddings.

I'm super happy with this layout.. It's actually the 2nd real layout I'm able to share with everyone!:) Hope you guys like it..:">

This is also the 1st time I'm joining a scrapbook challenge, and I love how my layout was sooo timely for Sketchy Thursdays' challenge for this week! So here's my take on this week's challenge:

A closer look on my LO:

My 1st ever finished layout!

As usual, it's my fiance that inspires me to actually finish something... ahahaha!! I already started 2 scrapbook layouts like a few months ago, but I haven't finished them yet.. there just seem like something else I could add in it for me to be ok with it.. ehehehe!!

But this week, I finshed my 1st ever real layout (since I've already done several digital ones) in like 2 days..;) It was my fiance's birthday, so I wanted to give him this to put in his office cubicle..:)

The pictures are from the engagement (/Trash-the-Dress) shoot we just had last Aug. 11 at Hamilo Coast, Nasugbu Batangas.

More pictures from the engagement shoot here.

Title: Picture Perfect!
You will always be God's greatest gift to me!

In sickness & in health,

for richer & for poorer,
for better & for worse...... I Do!

I love you so much! XoXo

I'd love to improve on my craft, so you're comments are welcome!:)

Memories Always - Forever

Last thursday (July 9), my friend Bhane (who has already made numerous beautiful scrapbook layouts already) invited me to join this new network group, created for scrapbook enthusiast: Memories Always - Forever.

Of course, since I really want to learn and create real scrapbooks in the future, I instantly joined and uploaded some of my digital layouts.

I was honored and flattered to immediately have one of my layouts featured on their site!:) I didn't get any prize whatsoever, and it's not a contest... but I'm super duper UBER flattered and happy about it!:)

Now, I'm making another digital layout... for one of the events created by the group.. I hope people like it too..;) Wish me luck!;)

My bestfriend's trip down under

My bestfriend, Jajah, went for a vacation in Australia last May. Unfortunately, due to budget constraints, I wasn't able to join her.. ehehe!

Anyway, she wanted me to do a real scrapbook layout for her pics from her trip, which I'm really excited to do.. But in the meantime, here's something I made from Scrapblog:

Another DIY Save-The-Date

Last week, I thought of doing another STD using Scrapblog.. I liked the last STD I did... but I felt that it's still not THE save-the-date for us.. you know what I mean??... Like it's nice and all, but it seems that something is still missing...

And then this......

Our pictures taken by Wally Gonzales

I SUPER DUPER LOVE IT!! It's just PERFECT for our wedding theme! And when you see our invites, you'll also know why...;) I'm also proud of the fact that I made this more or less from scratch..:) meaning I didn't use any of the free (already made) templates from Scrapblog, but just made use of their stickies and mixed them all up...:) I truly 101% heart this!:)

My Save-The-Date layout

Since I have been blogging a lot recently about our wedding preps and all in our WEDsite and my other blogspot.. and I have been intrigued by this digital scrapbooking.. I thought of practicing my "scrapbooking" skills by making our Save-the-Date cards!;)

I already posted my first try here. Not bad for a beginner, if I may say so myself! ahaha!! Then just last April 30, we had our first official prenup shoot with Wally Gonzales. Of course, having all these beautiful pictures from him inspired me to again create another STD.. so here it is:

Whatcha think?...;)

It's been a looooong time since I've posted anything in this blog. Sorry about that.. Been really busy with all the wedding preps.. yeah, I know excuses, excuses.... ehehe!! But, I'll definitely try to post more often...:) I also might change the name of this blog site.. but until I've thought of it's new name, this will do for now..;) ehehe!

Digital Scrapbooking

I've always been interested in scrapbooking.. especially when I saw my cousin's collection of stamps, and all the things she made with those... WOW!! I'm just DYING to learn it, and be able to create BEAUTIFUL layouts!.. But, I still don't have a lot of materials to work on with... and (I'm disappointed to learn) I'm not as creative as I thought, since I can't seem to make something nice with what I have...:( I also have a very limited budget, so can't really splurge on the materials at the moment...;)

So.... I'm SUPER thankful when I learned about digital scrapbooking!! to be exact!:) not only am I able to make pages for FREE, but it's also soooo easy to do!:)

Here are just some of the first few pages I made from ScrapBlog:

My first (ever) Page

I made this for my bestfriend, Debby

This one for my bestfriend, Jhia

For my "sisters": Jajah, Jhia and Debby

Trying our Save-the-Date in ScrapBlog

Just sharing... Hope you guys like it!:) Help me improve, comments are welcome!;)
