i feel like i've been in some sort of scrapping restraints these past few weeks and finally yesterday, i was able to scrap to my heart's content. and it was the first time in a few weeks that i felt genuinely happy. oh how i wish for more 4-day weekends. or just that this one won't end. hubby and i are staying home for the holy week and yesterday, we did some general cleaning. i purged some of my scrapbook stuff to give to my sister who also scraps and dusted the boxes and knick-knacks in my scrapbook area. somehow, having organized my stuff makes me more inspired to work on an lo.
anyway, i'd like to share a layout i did for
adthis april 6 using the ad below as inspiration. it had a vintage-y vibe for me. for my lo, i flipped the ad vertically then horizontally for the placement of the elements. i wanted to to play with the orange and brown hues set against a white backdrop. last time i promised to deviate from my usual pink-green-blue combination so the colors in this ad was a welcome change. finally, the technique twist was to use 5 embellishments from 5 different manufactures: 1.)bingo card from jenni bowlin 2.)flowers from prima 3.) gonchos from aas 4.) transparency from mme and 5.) letter stickers from october afternoon. it was difficult limiting myself to 5 so i had to cut out from my pp's for the owl and the heart. i love this challenge and i love how the lo turned out. will probably start playing with other colors soon. that's about it for me. will try to upload another one tomorrow.

also, i have been so busy i wasn't able to blog about some tags from friends. sorry for the delay but as they say, better late than never.
the first one is from ms. timi who is one scrapper i really admire, you should check out her blog and see that she gets as much awards as much as the lo's she churns out a.k.a. all her lo's are award-winning.

the second one is from tna who i never met in person but who i can tell from her posts is very nice. tna, i really do hope we get to meet each other in person some day.

1. make a list of what you want for your birthday.
2. the list should be 10 numbers.
3. include the image of this award on your post.
4. give it to 10 friends of yours.

here are my 10 wishes:

1.) backpack through europe with hubby
2.) asian cruise with hubby (stopover at mwl for shopping)
3.) 1-year subscription to studio calico and bad girls
4.) trip to us (for more scrapbook shopping spree)
5.) my own scraproom
6.) more success for hubby's business
