3 Wishes

Mia says, Kaya!

Finally! Yahoo I was able to do a LO for the Kaya challenge! I know it's been a while but hey at least I made it this time huh? Had a blast doing this LO! Hope you enjoy it!

Here's the journaling pulled out:

Materials: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, KI Memories; Patterned Paper: American Crafts, Hambly Screen Prints, Love Elsie, Sassafras Lass; Journaling paper: Knock Knock Note to Self; Alphabet sticker: American Crafts; Rubon: Hambly Screen Prints; Stamp: KI Memories; Metal clips: Making Memories; Glitter Glue: Ranger Stickles; Pen: American Crafts, Zig Millenium; Ink: Colorbox; writing paper; buttons

I love the sheet that I used to journal on since it was perfect for this page with the title of the sheet being "Note to Self" since this is really about me and what I want to say to myself. The sheet is fun in that it has boxes that you can check off depending on what you are thinking at the moment or how important what you want to say is. The boxes I checked were: Urgent, Requires Follow-up, Don't Forget, Brilliant Idea, Just a Thought.

Re: 3 wishes for '08
CC: ME!!!
-Requires Follow-up
-Don't Forget
-Brilliant Idea
-Just a Thought
2007 is over, it's now 2008. Another year is over and a new one has just begun. There are so many things I would like to do or have happen this year, all by the time that I'm 30. Yes, I'm gonna be 30 this year. ACK! Well, instead of rambling on and on, here are my three wishes for 2008:
1) To lie a healthier and more active lifestyle, which in turn would help me loose weight, something which I really need to do.
2) Scrapbook wise, I would love to be able to scrap without abandon, without worrying that I'm making the perfect page. Just do what I love and be proud of it and don't be afraid.
3) Lastly, to be more calm and mellow in life when things don't go my way. Don't let anger get the better of you!

Techniques Used: Layering, Inking, Doodling, Hand cutting, Stamping

About ME:
I'm Mia, an almost 30 scrapbooker who discovered this life altering hobby by coincidence in the end of 2006. I began scrapping seriously though since March of '07. I've since become addicted to it. I guess you could call me the resident scrap shopaholic since I've been combining 2 of my favorite things scrapbooking and shopping in one. You need a product or patterned paper identified then I'm your girl! I've memorized practically all the designs that are out there. I know scary but hey I have a pretty photographic memory. Watch out for my monthly Cool Finds articles at Scrapbytes.

Oh wow, Mia. You sure have a knack for choosing gorgeous patterns and embellies. All put together in one amazing LO. This LO is awesome!

Hi, Mia. As always, a beautiful and elegant layout from you, crammed with just the right amount of delish embellies. No wonder you have your own kit store. Your work is something that exemplifies the very heart of kit scrapping. Galing! =)

I must say, I feel pretty lucky to see this LO come to life. Ang sarap panoorin ni Mia mag-scrap... naglalaro lang talaga. Gandang-ganda na ako dun sa unfinished version nito, but when I saw the final outcome... napailing na lang ako sa sarili ko. Unang word lumabas sa bibig ko upon seeing this? "Alright..." (with reverence yun ha).

marjorie said...

diane said...

Maybelle said...

Mia!!! Another great one! I love your jounaling though I can't imagine you getting angry at anything. I think you're one of the sweetest people around.

Sheryl said...

Hi Mia! Another beautiful page from you! Am counting myself lucky for having you as one of this month's challengers. Your LO has a nice contrast and the embellies were obviously picked carefully & wisely. I love the fact also that you hand-wrote the journaling! It's perfect!

Tin said...

hi partner! as always you do your scrap supplies justice :-) the layers of elements really gives a nice punch to your LO.

Mia? Angry?! i'd say your emotionally stable (complement yun! hehe), unless you're kit ends up in Zurich i would say you just get slightly miffed hehe
