Yana

Alby says, KAYA!

I've been wanting to scrap some of the pictures of my friend's daughter Yana. I've always admired Yana's photos because of the way she looks at the camera. Her mom told me that even as a little toddler, Yana's dad would ask her to "look at the lens". She has a lot of beautiful photos but I chose this one because the colors of her clothes match my digital papers perfectly.


Journaling:
Where has time gone? In a blink of an eye, you have blossomed into a beautiful young lady.

Supplies:
Materials:
Adobe Photoshop CS2; Summer Afternoon Kit by Bren Boone; Rhonna Farrer Color My World Green Paper; Tracy Collins' Raspberry Mocha Button; MacFont - Taylor Mackenzie


About ME:
Hi! My name is Alby Laran, the scrap-crazy wife of Ariel. I have been buying scrapbooking stuff and working on an album since 2002 but didn't know anything about acid-free materials until early 2006. It w then that I attended my very first scrapping workshop and later got invited to Pinoyscrapbookers. There was no turning back after that.

I enjoy scrapping because it is never routine, and therefore, never boring. Each layout is a different experience. There is an endless list of techniques to try and it is constantly evolving. Most importantly, it allows me to express myself creatively, and to preserve my precious memories. It also reunited me to my old hobby - photography. I am mainly a paper scrapper and it will always be my biggest love. I
like that I can touch the layout, feel the texture, open flaps, insert tags, and interact with the art. Recently though, I started to dabble into digital scrapping and I am enjoying it. It allows me to scrap on weekdays when I am away from my paper scrapping supplies and tools.
