All Grown Up!

Again, another sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:

And my entry for this challenge:

The subject is my bestfriend, Jajah. Pictures on the left & right were taken in Australia, where she studied in that school in the background for a few years.. Then just last year, after more than 10 years if I'm not mistaken, she visited her old school (and a few more other familiar places) and took a picture in the same spot (center picture)! Nostalgic??......maybe..;)

I used a black background for the Black & Bling challenge at Creative Scrapbooking Divas' site. I knew I wouldn't be qualified to join the challenge, but I just thought using the black BG just the same, just so I could also share this LO with them..

Here are some close ups:

I sure pray that I win this time at Sketchy Thursdays! The prizes for this week are just FAB!! And God knows I need them! Hahaha!!

Paper Piecing

This is my entry for Simply Scrapping's Wk2 Challenge: Any Way You Like It Paper Piecing.

Week 2 challenge at SSC is a Technique challenge, and this week, I learned about paper piecing! I sure enjoyed learning this technique, and might be using it in again the future, when I do have more stamps to use for this..;) But since I only have limited choices at the moment, I used my only stamp with "hollow" insides, which is a flower..:P Had a bit of a hard time cutting them out since they are small... but I liked how it turned out!:D I surely had fun doing this challenge!:)

More pics:

Thanks for viewing!:)

I'm so happy to be able to finish my first 12x12 LO for the year! It's for Sketchy Thursdays' "Vintage" sketch: (photo of the sketch taken from Sketchy Thursdays)

And here's my take on the sketch, I hope it's "vintage" enough for the challenge..;)

Title: Photobooth
Journal: "Our first photobooth experience was at our wedding! We enjoyed fooling around & posing for the camera!=) My only regret is that we weren't able to take as much pictures as I wanted.. Was just too tired already.. Hehe! But it was surely a fun, fun, FUN experience!!:)"

Picture on the right is a closer view of our pictures and the materials I used for the LO..

Thanks for looking! Your comments are welcome!:)

My First Pocket Page

My first output for the year! It's an entry to a challenge from Theresa at MAF called: Funday Monday Pocket Challenge.. It basically just asks us to create a 12x12 pocket page... I've never done any pocket pages before (in any size).. So this is definitely something new for me..

And it's also very timely since I just got married last December.. and we received a lot of greeting cards and envelopes from our guests... we collected them so that we'll know who to send Thank You cards to later.. so now I got an instant storage for our cards! Kewlness!;)

Here's my entry:

I used purple and blue paper for the "pockets" since that was our wedding colors.. Then I used one of our pre-wedding pictures, which was an excess of the table nos. I made for the wedding.. It has a note "Marriage - The state of being married to a person".. All our table nos. had a word that more or less has a connection with marriage, like commitment, trust, love, etc.:) I also placed a treasure chest embelly, since this pocket contains our treasures, literally and figuratively speaking! Haha! and of course the phrase "Thank you!" which is our simple, yet heartfelt message to everyone inside that pocket!;)

Hope you like it! Thanks for viewing!
