Joy says, KAYA!

This is my first digital challenge since I joined Pinoyscrapbookers. At first I thought the requirements were hard but with the help of my friend everything turned out to be quick and easy. After 5 hours of facing the computer I was able to produce what I wanted.

New to digital scrapbooking, this is a good experience for me. Joining this KAYA challenge helped me to improve my artistic skill and creative ideas to explore with the free stuffs that I downloaded. My sincerest thanks to the people who kept on convincing me to join. Without your inspiring encouragement I still wouldn't produce an outcome.

Journaling Reads:
Your love is my light, sun of all my mornings, fire of all my nights. (From the book of Quote, Unquote Vol. 2)

Supplies Used:
Paper: ShabbyPrincess_MB_PieceaCakePage
Ribbon Bow: SP_HolidayMagic_BlueBow
Ribbon: angie_briggs_choccover_blueribbon
Word Art: MaryAnn Wise 2P Summers Here enjoy life
Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements 5.0

I converted the paper and pictures from colored to black and white. Added 3 layers of pictures to my focal photo. Used inner shadow effect together with blue ghost to have blue effect on the pictures. Removed the background my 2 remaining photos. The blue strip was placed for my journal. Added some blue embellishments like the ribbons and pattern papers.

About ME:

Joyleen Dianne, 30 years old married for almost 5 years. I start scrapbooking last 2002 after I got married because I wanted to do my own wedding pictures in another way aside from the magnetic album. After I finished with my wedding layouts I stopped thinking about it because I was having a hard time buying scrapbooking stuffs until one day someone invited me to join pinoy scrapbookers. Aside from scrapbooking, I’m into other crafts like paper tole, cross-stitch and others stuffs. To know more about me, visit my site at

Very sweet naman ang journaling. Eyes full of love nga! Great LO.

Jenn said...

great pics, talagang damang-dama ang love between you two!

Nita Ang said...

Swerte mo Joy at yang asawa mo ay photogenic at nahahatak mo magpa-studio shots. Ang asawa ko, kundi pa sa motor (este, sports bike :P)nya, di mo mapapa-pose. Nice LO.

Joy Lim said...

Hi Ms Nita,
OO super game yung asawa ko magpicture. Mas magaling pa yan magpose sa akin. No wonder ang daming namin pictures everytime we travel kaya nahihirapan ako gumawa ng layouts ko.
Thank you for the nice compliment. First time ko mag-join sa mga ganitong challenge. Nakakatuwa pala.
See you around.

Joy Lim said...

Hi Jenn,
After 5 years of being married, the feeling of love was still the same and continue to be strong and deeply in love with each other. I thank God for giving me a loving and supportive husband. To God be the Glory.

Joy Lim said...

Hi craftfairy,
Thanks for the compliment. Mas naging encourage pa me to do more LOs. Hirap lang ako sa journaling kaya nga panay quotes lang ang nilalagay ko.
See you.

Sheryl E. Martinez said...

Hi joy, am so happy you were able to use a quote from quote, unquote. Told you it's a good investment, those quote, unquote series of Autumn leaves. :-) Nice job you did here. :-)

Lee i. said...

Hi Joy, I like how you placed your photos. And of course, sweet niyong mag-asawa ha. Ilang taon na nga kayong kasal? :-) You say that this is your frst attempt at digital scrapping? Grabe kayo ha. Parang overnight lang expert na kayo bigla sa Photoshop. Well done, sister.

Joy Lim said...

Hi Sheryl,
Oo nga eh.. Thanks for recommending the quote book to me. Can't wait to have other volumes. Now, my husband won't get mad na because I used what I bought na.
See yah..

Joy Lim said...

Hi Lee,
Thanks for your warm welcome and for helping me out. I don't have my own blog pa but I do have a website. Turning 5 years na kami this June 23 but still NO fruit of our love. I know time will came for both of us kaya right now we are busy for each other. Yes this is my first attempt at digital scrapping. Thanks to my fellow friends who keeps on helping me out in times of my needs.

Au Lim said...

hi Joyleen! your hubby ang katukayo ng hubby ko, right down to the ka ba talaga to digiscrapping?! E sus, ang galeng mo na ah! You're a natural.

Joy Lim said...

Hi Au,
Ikaw pala yun. Hinahanap ko nga yun nagsabi sa akin na same ang name ng hubby natin. Yes I'm new to digital. Makalikot lang talaga ako sa pc and softwares kaya kahit na ano lang ginagawa ko. Still trying to learn some more pa thru reading books and surfing the net kaso minsan if I'm not in the mood walang ako nagagawa. Hehehehe.
Thanks for the nice thoughts. Nakakainspire sa amin mga newbies dito.
See yah.
