3 wishes

CABBIE says, KAYA!

Making layouts about oneself is the most intimidating thing in scrapbooking, well, that is to my opinion. we are more reserved, cautious and self-conscious when we scrap about ourselves. that's why when this challenge came up, i have to look for pics of myself ( which i seldom take shots of-- well most of us naman) and i have to develop it asap in black and white! it is also so personal to allow others to see your personal wishes but for some reasons, there is this sense of hope when we share our wishes to other people! i decided to use this picture because this was taken last year in a temple in zamboanga city. i love the well-pond i decided to pose there and feel as if i am in a stagnant wishing well.. wishing and wishing... hopefully!


Journaling:

1. good health and good life to my family.
2. to be able to drive my kids to school.
3. to try to go back to hospital training.

Materials used:

basic grey mellow collection; basic grey rub ons; daisy ds cardstock sticker; chatterbox alpha transparent sticker; stickles; prima journal card; sepia accents

Techniques used:

layering; collage; inking; doodling

About me:
i am cabbie to most scrappers in the scrapbooking world. i am a stay at home to 4 boys. i have been scrapbooking since may 2006 and i go for the vintage, classic-like look of a layout though i want to explore other techniques too! i am a design team member of scrapbookshawaii and artzdescrap and a co-mod for pinoyscrapbookers email group. i also love to alter stuffs and i love books, journals, photography , cafe and the internet. you can visit my blog for more of my works and thoughts.

Regarding your wishes, I hope they do come true for you.

I can relate about the wish to drive pero, happily, may excuse ako: wala naman kami kotse. Hehe.

Miss you!

Eeeeerrgghhh... you are very bad for my new year's resolution. Everytime I look at your LO I tell myself, "sabi na nga dapat binili ko yung BG chipboard na yun eh... bakit wala pa ako nung rub-ons na yun... ano nanamang mga PPS eto!" Very bad, indeed.
