Little Teacher Award

Ems says, KAYA!

I planned to really incorporate Gaby's school knick-knacks/awards (if any) in her school albums, either by taking photos of them or simply slipping them in the lay-out. The first one (which I already scrapped) was a certificate of her participation in a summer program (her first to attend a school). It was photographed with her holding it. The second was her award during the moving up day from Nursery to Kinder. I was tickled pink to know what her special award was because it was an affirmation on how she is becoming as a person. Can't help but use it in our Kaya Challenge this month.

We are so happy and proud of your special award. It really proves that you have a helpful and kind spirit. May you continue to be giving, ever ready to lend a helping hand.

Too bad we were not able to snap photos during your “moving-up day”. After one shot of this blurry photo, our digital camera has gone kaput---Nevertheless, this single photo and the certificate are enough to make the memory of that day remain in my heart forever…

About ME:
I'm Ems Fronda, working wife to a wonderful hubby, Oliver & Mommy to a beautiful girl, Gaby and another one on the way (after almost 7 years). Started scrapbooking when I was in High School using magazine cut-outs, ordinary stickers & other knick-knacks. Got hooked on "real" traditional scrapbooking in 2003 with the push and shove of my dear friend, Joanne Yap (thanks dear). Since then, the bug has never left me. I would say my style is clean and mean but would love to develop from there. I envy those scrapbookers who can just dump a lot of patterned papers and embellishments in a single LO and still look clean and not busy. Since I'm a working Mom, I'm ecstatic just to finish 1 or 2 LO/s a month. My subject is mostly my daughter Gaby so I'm glad that she'll have a sibling soon (another backlog on the way too).

Hey Ems, is that the actual certificate? Nice that it fit a 12x12 LO. I like th combination of circles and rectangles in the LO, made it visually interesting. Thanks for sharing.
