FRIENDS 'til the bitter end

Jenn says, KAYA!

Here I am again, beating another Kaya Challenge deadline. I don't have any excuse but procrastination, as I have already planned this layout since the week the challenge was announced. Yesterday, I was so shocked to realize it's already the 26th, and I feared not being to submit a layout because our computer got re-formatted and brother cannot install MS Office. Having slow computer and Internet connection also threatened me, but I am happy to pull this off in under three hours. Since we don't have MS Office, I cannot print anything, hence my handwritten journal. Biggest challenge was choosing the papers to use, as I am not really that good in picking papers for my layouts.

This layout is about me and my friend Ahdz when she came to sleep over in our place last July 14. In our 8 years of friendship, this had only been the fourth time we've seen each other personally, yet I could tell in an instant that she's one of the closest friends I have.
Layout based on a Becky Fleck sketch. Sorry for the poor scan.

Journaling Reads:
I met Ahdz nearly a decade ago when I signed up at a Hanson fan listing in hopes to gain more pals who are just as crazy as I am, Hanson-wise. We started as pen pals, and as time passed, not only did we share stories and opinions about the band, we've also shared things about ourselves. Now, we're constant text mates and closer than ever before. We rarely see each other, but our communication keeps our friendship growing. I am so blessed knowing a sweet friend like her. She's definitely a friend for keeps.

Materials Used:
Patterned Papers - DCWV, Craft Express, Imaginisce, Miss Elizabeth's * Pen - Sakura Gelly Roll (brown), Sakura Pigma Micron 04 (black) * Flowers - Prima * Others - Rick Rack, mini flower brads (AAS)
Techniques Used:
Layering, Inking (I don't have any stamp pad, so I lined my paper with my black pen)

About ME:
A 27-year old lady who has been into crafts since high school but just officially dived into real scrapbooking September of 2006. Even though I think I am probably the poorest of all the scrapbookers here in the Philippines, I don't see financial constraints as hindrance for me to create layouts about my life’s memories. Actually, with the very few materials that I have, I am now doing my third album. Style wise, I love to do multiple pictures in my layouts, and as much as possible, I want to put as much memories from a life’s event into one layout. Aside from scrapbooking, I am also into cross-stitching, card making (though I only create cards for select people), and altering boxes to accommodate my knick-knacks and old letters from friends.
