My Little Boy BLUE

Cookie says, KAYA!

Hello! Finally, I was able to finish my LO even if I don't own any stamps. Thanks to Tin and Mia for lending me your stamps during the July 15 EB. I really had a hard time figuring out what my LO would look like considering I only have 3 pieces of usable stamped acetate and cardstock. (There was not enough time for me to stamp during the EB because my husband picked me up a little early.) Actually I'm still afraid to stamp but I also plan on buying my own stamps because I learned different ways on how to use it. Anyway, here's my LO, hope you guys like it.

About ME:
Hello! I'm Cookie Aguilar, 29 years old and a full-time wife and mommy to hubby Henry and son Lance Harvey. I started scrapbooking about two years ago, a few months before giving birth to Harvey. But I started to get addicted to the craft last year. There are times that I just love staring at all my scrapbooking materials, papers, etc. And finishing a layout really makes me feel happy. I'm just begining to post my new layouts at

You really put the stamped images you made at the EB to good use. And I like the color combination. What glitter did you sue for the word "blue"?

Love this! Ang neat mo gumawa and the color combinations are just gorgeous. Ganda pala ng effect na stamping ang photo corner. And wow, you even had enough space to leave a border. Galing! =)
