A Good Pair

Pearl says, KAYA!

If I were to chose between comfort and fashion, I would chose comfort in a heartbeat. And to those who really know me, it will be no surprise to them if I say that my Converse AllStar sneakers is on the top of my favorite things in the world. If I can afford to have these pair in all the colors of the rainbow (and in monochrome) I would. If I can come to the corporate office wearing these pair, I will. That's how much I love them :)


Materials Used:
Patterned paper: Creative Imaginations (scalloped) & Autumn Leaves; Stamps: Autumn Leaves (Journaling block) and Cat's Life Press (Exhibit A); Transparency: Hambly; Brads: JoAnn's; Stamping Ink: Dew Drop Tsukineko; Pen: American Crafts; Alpha Stickers: Making Memories; Decorative Tape: Heidi Swapp; Flowers: Prima

Techniques Used:

For the journaling, AL journaling blocks were stamped in AL patterned paper and adhered to the layout with foam tape for dimension. Apologies for the blurred pic - I'm still saving up for a really nice high-end camera..

About ME:
My name is Pearl Rigonan, I recently moved to Singapore to work for a MNC. I'm in my late 20's, single but that's okay.. My interest in scrapbooking started in 2004 but only seriously considered it as a hobby in 2005. Scrapbooking is my hobby of choice as it allows so much freedom in creativity, be it art in paper, words or pictures. Through this hobby, I have met and acquainted myself to so many people who share the same passion as I have in scrapbooking and they continue to inspire me to make more layouts and be better at the craft. When I scrapbook, I try to do whatever I want but my cardinal rule is always MAKE IT ACID FREE. I still haven't found my scrap-style but discovering how much you can do is half the fun of creating. Apart from scrapbooking, I also love to read, listen to music and travel. I'm addicted to chocolate and coffee. And I already miss Manila terribly!!!

Hello Pearl, buti at nakahabol ka :D I disagree with what you said, it should've read: Huli man at magaling... magaling talaga! I love your apple green photo matt na may scroll... ano yan, rub-on? Also, nice touch dun sa mga brads sa gitna ng diamond-shape. Subtle sya pero may dating. Good job, sis!

Hi Pearl, I agree with Nita. I waited with anticipation for your LO and it did not disappoint. Am glad you're scrapping again, can't wait to see more of your works. We know you will have your dream camera before you know it. And gosh, surely you will take more photos faster than you can say scrap.
