girl friday

it's friday! the weekend is almost here. i just have 3 hours of work left to do and i am done! monday has been declared a holiday here in manila but i am in training and our instructor from india decided to stick with the original schedule as he is scheduled to leave next saturday.

anyway, this is my take for creative scrappers sketch # 98, one of the outputs of my creative weekend. this is not my usual color scheme, i just wanted to try it out. the orange and purple combination is a favorite of one of my friends in the picture. i rarely but orange and purple pares unless they come in a kit or in some sort of set.
i've also been trying to use up my old stuff as i am plagued with guilt over my still unused recent purchases. the papers are old mme papers from the tres jolie line. classic line don't you think so? when i started out with this, i thought the page would really be simple so i started putting in a bit of flowers, a chipboard, some stickers and before you knew it, it wasn't so simple anymore! i guess i can't make clean and simple pages. i always seem to be itching to add something new.
finally, the picture was taken back in december 2008 from a friend's wedding in pampanga, she and her husband have migrated to australia last february.
i think i have said too much. back to work for me. the sooner i finish my tasks, the earlier i can start with my weekend.

seeing butterflies

i remember seeing this quote somewhere, "if nothing ever changed, there'd be no butterflies." i've always had a difficult time adjusting to changes no matter how small. if i don't find something where i last placed them, it disturbs me to say the least and can potentially put me off the rest of the day. but i am working on embracing change, learning to adapt allowing myself to be more open to new possibilities.
anyway, i get all these from a butterfly. i am loving the martha stewart butterfly punch, the dress form stamp from girls paperie and the doily stamp from oa. and the letterbox line from ac? i love it.
perfect elements for my entry for creative scrappers sketch #98. this is an old picture taken when we were scouting for a venue for the wedding. hope you like it. off to churn out another lo. halfway through the week, i can't wait for the weekend.

splendid is a state of mind

...and so is everything else. from the 7 habits seminar i attended a few years back, our instructor told us that we make our own weather. but the heat has been getting too intense to ignore.
i suspect that this heat has finally gotten to me and is causing me to have these headaches. it started yesterday around lunch but i dismissed it thinking i was just hungry. but even after eating, the headache persisted even until the movie. hubby and i went to watch kick-ass but i slept through about a quarter of it because the pain was unbearable. when we got home, i decided to take a nap and guess what? i woke up the next day!
up until this morning, my head was aching - yes i think i should go see a doctor. i found some advil in my purse and after about half an hour, the pain was gone.
i am a firm believer that pain makes one stronger and any sickness you have just develops your immune system. so i put off taking medicines unless i absolutely have to.
anyway, i am rambling when all i wanted to say was i have an lo i finished two weeks ago. i managed to complete 3 lo's + half of an album during the weekend so i am really thankful for all the creative energy i seem to be having (must be the heat?).
this lo is for creative scrappers' sketch #87. anyway, off to bed, i have an early day tomorrow. have a great week ahead everyone.

another one

i found out yesterday i won scrap inspire create's march sing me a song challenge. you can view the announcement here. this was such an unexpected but very welcome news. needless to say, i was so happy when i saw the announcement.
i am sharing one more lo i created for scrappersatsg challenge #32: alice in wonderland challenge. it took me a week to complete this - from cutting the papers, misting, painting, waiting for the mediums to dry, putting things in and taking them out. i love the layered look, i might try out one more this weekend. one of the members of scrappersatsg is celebrating here blogoversary. why don't you drop by here and give marix some love?
anyway, back to work for me.
