W3 (3 Wishes)

Candy says, KAYA!

I wasn't going to join since I was avoiding taking current photos of me. I keep on telling myself, I'll have a better photo when I lose weight. And then again, who am I kidding? I should accept reality, but have workable goals to achieve this year.

I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull it off since I wanted more dramatic black, white and red colors only on the LO. I thought it wouldn't be me as it would be a radical departure from my accustomed style. Apparently, I was wrong. It still turned out still my style since I started adding things that was typically favorites of mine and yet it turned out also different. Hopefully, this take on an edgier "Candy" will help me to stretch my LO skills.

The journal speaks for itself. The first two wishes will help me focus on keeping myself healthy and making me feel good about my "maturing" body. The last wish is for the growth of my soul.

Hidden Journal:
1. to get to pre-pregnancy size so I can wear clothes I like
2. to get rid of my flab and to physically take care of my body
3. to submit more LOs and projects locally & internationally

About ME:
Hello, I'm Candy Bonoan-Lagazon, Montessori teacher, wife to Arn, and mother to Galo, my 3 year old son. Aside from teaching, I love arts and crafts, drawing, painting, singing, playing the piano, and tracing my Bonoan Family Tree. I've been scrapping for 3 years ever since my son's birth, but only joined scrapping forums this August. I'm learning more about this craft in the last 3 months just by hanging around other scrappers than I'v e ever done scrapping alone. Scrapping is the ultimate art release for me as it combines materials I love and techniques I've learned over the years. Lately, I'm challenged to combine my love for scrapping and for genealogy by coming up with LOs using old photos of my relatives.
