Favorite Words

Nita says, KAYA!

As I was hoarding Off lotion from a neighborhood drug store (na-Dengue scare kasi ako), this vitamin box displayed on the shelf grabbed my attention. I liked the simplicity of it's packaging design and the color combination + font of the brand seems perfect for scraplifting. I politely asked if I could have the box (kapal ko ano? Anything for scrapbooking talaga. LOL) and the man was nice enough to give it to me. As soon as I got home, I took out my cardstock collection and started sorting for colors to match the brand. I was very happy to find out that I have all the colors. Then I thought to myself, "you know what... this is do-able" :D

Now, my eldest brother Henry is completely bonkers over my daughter. He goes to my mother's house where my daughter is staying while I'm away at work. I mean, he goes there 3x a day just to see her! Anyway, he did this list of my daughter's favorite words and compiled drawings (some he lovingly did, himself in Corel Draw). I decided to use the materials he did and integrated it in my LO.

There is no actual journaling, but in case you are curious what this toddler-talk means, here it is: Ma-Do - Mc Do; Eber - Hippo; Bider - Spider; Wain - Rain; Nanana - any device that has an ear piece (Ipod, cellphone, etc.); Aufufu - Octopus; Da - Frog (don't ask me why...) ; Wai-O-Wai - Dragonfly; Dader - Turtle; Owait - Chocolate; and Mem - Worm.

Materials Used: Bazzill, Making Memories, DCWV cardstocks; Various scraps of PPS (Scenic Route, American Craft, Chatterbox, Cherry Arte, DCWV); Cotton Lace; Blings; Buttons; Eyelets; Flowers; White alphabet rub-ons.

Tools Used: Simply Scrappy square template; Simply Scrappy circle template; Coluzzle knife; Crop-A-Dile; Fiskars paper edgers.

Font Used: Impact
