Big Bad Mama

Lee says, KAYA!

This challenge really got me stamped! I have used stamps to make titles before, but for some reason, this challenge had me wanting to do more. I think I over-exerted myself. :-)

This layout was inspired by Panjee Gonzales' article about being a mom which I read at Leir's blog.


Journaling (on tags):
To-Do-List
Check that KiDS have healthy "baon"
Read PATECON notes re schoolwork
Remember to check homeworks
Supervise KiDS' meals
Referee quarrels/fights
Have lots of patience
Clean up/listen up
Pray...
To-Call-List
???put the KiDS up for adoption

WANT To-Do-List
Scrap!!!
Read books for grown-ups
Computer (blog/surf)

It's not easy to be a SAHM. You are on call 24 hours a day. It is particularly hard now that my yaya decided to take a permanent vacation. I have a long list of "things to do" for my DH and 3 KiDS everyday. But sometimes I forget and the entire household runs amok. Many times I lose it. I become upset...mad. I lose my patience. I raise my voice. I turn into a bad mama. And when that happens. I don't like myself at all.

Materials Used:
Papers - Basic Grey Sublime Collection; Stamps for title - Making Memories Mixed Font foam stamps; MM acrylic paint - Espresso; Stamp on photo - Autumn Leaves "Invent Yourself It's Up To You"; Stamp on paragraph - Making Memories Magnetic Alphabet; unknown tags.

Techniques:
Paper tearing, lots of stamping. And lots of mistakes. It's not easy to stamp letters or words. Sometimes they come out baligtad. So to make sure, I end up stamping on scratch paper first.

About ME:
Will update this part later, right now, I have to rush to CCP cause my DH wants to watch Pisay. Now showing at the Cinemalaya 2007 Festival. See? I am a good wife. :-)

Yehey! So tapos na yung scrapping slump mo?

I love this, Lee! You always force me to take a look at old supplies with new eyes. I would never have imagined that you'd be able to create such a spectacular layout in such a simple yet effective way! Galing!
