Kaya One

Hello all…to start the ball rolling, here’s the first challenge.

We usually scrap people but rarely do we scrap an item. Since favorites are also a part of our lives and usually tell something about us, it is fitting for us scrappers to DO a layout on a FAVORITE THING/ITEM! Here’s my latest. It’s hubby’s gift to me on my last birthday!

Journaling:

I didn’t think I’d get my wish since my b’day had come and passed. I had been dropping hints that I wanted a DSLR but the Canon 400D I wanted was beyond our budget. On this day Erwin took me to a store in Quiapo where I saw this one – Nikon D40. It was so highly recommended by the shopkeeper, Ramon AND it was within budget! This picture of me is the first shot off the camera w/c the shopkeeper took to show me how well it works. Needless to say, the camera came home with me! Thus far, I am lovin’ my Nikon D40!

Materials/Techniques Used:

DCWV cardstock as base, MM acrylic paints (Spotlight (white), Cranberry+Asphalt (black) mixed to get a dark red) and MM Dingbat foam stamps for title and corner trimmings, MM Magnetic rubber stamps for subtitle and dates, 3BIAR sticker for the quotation, 3BIAR French Country under my photo and K&Co pattern paper under the clear acrylic brackets by Simply Scrappy, Bazzill blossoms as pull-out for the 7Gypsies journaling card, Canson photo corners, buttons also work as a photo corner and finishing touch.

Kayang-kaya kaya? ---Scrap your FAVORITE THING/ITEM on a 12 x 12 traditional LO or a 12 by 12 format digital LO. [Polling will be on separate categories.]--- KAYA!

About ME:

Au dear, I really do love your style girl! Ganda naman nitong first ever layout on this blog. Hehe. Parang ang hirap sundan. Hope you don't mind my humble opinion that you got some great style, friend! =) Nina

wow...ganda ng layout, simple, not-too-busy, which is why the favorite item is very much emphasized. will submit my layout before friday, promise. =)

Au Lim said...

If I had a Nikon D40, it would be my favorite thing, too. Hahaha. But seriously, this is different from all your other LOs but it's still so you. Fun and funky.

purplesea said...

great LO Au! tama cla, kung ako may camerang ganyan, yan din ang fave item ko. At talagang yan lang ang palilitawin ko sa LO ko para STAR talaga sya. Hehehe!

Tin said...

Au, i love your LO's they're so different and so boheme!

Au Lim said...

thanks again for your comments Lee, Diane and Raissa! Tin, i especially love that term "boheme"...hehehe...i think i'd like to think of myself as that. kasi i am definitely NOT the elegant-type, sorta rough around the edges yet parang may konting romance at artistry...chuva!...hahaha...all that in one word :-D
