would you believe it if i told you

that i made the organza ribbon below in less than 5 minutes in starbucks? that the picture below was taken in starbucks using my iphone? that the organza ribbon was part of the bouquet hubby gave me for my birthday? the sweltering sunday heat forcibly evicted us from the house. but i was feeling mighty crafty (after a weekend shopping spree courtesy of hubby) and i was itching to do something, to create something and i guess this was my outlet. i made seven more, in various colors. i think i will be making more of these. back to enjoying the last season of lost. have a great week ahead everyone.

the early bird

gets to blog first? my body clock is messed up and i can't seem to get a proper night's sleep. i have to be early though to process some papers for a possible work trip abroad early next month. here's crossing my fingers that i get to complete the documents.
anyway, remember the class with my idol iris babao uy i told you about here? as promised, here are the layouts we were supposed to complete. i managed to finish less than half during the actual class and had to work on finishing the rest at home. i had so much fun in this class and i learned a lot of new techniques.
i can't wait for the next class this saturday. if you have a chance to take iris' class, i would strongly recommend it as aside from all the fantastic projects, iris is a wonderful teacher.
that's all for me, i have to start getting ready, it's a busy day ahead.

the good, the bad and some scrappy

just a quick one as it is kinda late. i have been mia for the last week as i was studying for a certification exam. and after 3 weeks of training, a week of downing cups of coffee and being a fixture in coffee shops with my heavy books, i passed!hubby has been supportive as always - keeping me company, pacifying me when i have bouts of anxiety attacks and generally making me laugh when i felt like hurling my books. i have the best husband.
the downside to this week was that my phone was stolen in our office. i left it on my desk while i went to lunch like i always do and someone swiped it. i was so upset because it was a gift from hubby. lesson learned.
i hate to end on a bad note so i will just talk a bit of my scrapping. during the week of the exam it took a lot of self-control for me not to scrap so i can focus on studying. so when the exam i planned to go on a scrapping frenzy. but alas, i had to work over the weekend. but i tried to get some scrapping time in between lulls. these are two lo's i finished over the weekend.
the first one is for sketchy thursday's gdt challenge. i love love love how everything turned out and the colors are close to our wedding motif.
the second one is for my mind's eye challenge #11:anything goes. i love this line and was loathe to cut it but i had to remind myself to use up my stuff.
anyway, it is getting late. i need to get some zzz's.

too early

hubby wasn't too pleased when i woke him up really early so i could take pictures of my lo's. but it's (inter)national scrapbooking day so i should get a free pass right? as soon as i am done i have to start preparing for my prima class with none other than iris babao uy.
anyway, before i dash, here are two lo's i created for creative scrappers sketch # 100 and creative scrappers sketch # 101. i managed to complete all 5 sketches for this month!
i actually cheated with the first lo as i "redid" it after i said i was done with it. i changed the journaling spot and added more embellishments. i told you i couldn't keep it simple.
for the second lo, i made the flowers i used from tissue paper. the orange flower was actually white but i sprayed it with glimmer mist. then i coated all flowers with opal dust. they're actually very sparkly and pretty.
enough chatter for me, i still have a long to-do list. enjoy the weekend everyone.
