Blessed

Ems says, KAYA!

Hi! Finally, I'm joining the KAYA challenge again (after a long hiatus ;o)

This is the first album I made for my mom. She's now making this as her
brag book to show off her family to people. I made this specifically as a
thank you-gift for being the best mom and mamus (lola) to my kids.

Journaling:
for the last page, a hidden journalling was placed...it's a
message to my mom thanking her for everything, telling her to enjoy the
fruits of her labor, to enjoy her upcoming retirement and to take care of
her good health.

Materials:
6x6 accordion album-Imaginovation
Papers-DCWV, KI Memories, SEI, Chatterbox, Urban lily
Flowers-Prima, local
Diecuts from Sizzix
HS/Lil Davies clear stamp
Local bling, foam, ribbons, fibers, lace and buttons
Lil Davies glitter glue
Colorbox ink
Alpha rub-ons

Techniques:
just simple tearing, cutting, distressing and
layering

About ME:
I'm Ems Fronda, working wife to a wonderful hubby, Oliver & Mommy to a beautiful girl, Gaby and another one on the way (after almost 7 years). Started scrapbooking when I was in High School using magazine cut-outs, ordinary stickers & other knick-knacks. Got hooked on "real" traditional scrapbooking in 2003 with the push and shove of my dear friend, Joanne Yap (thanks dear). Since then, the bug has never left me. I would say my style is clean and mean but would love to develop from there. I envy those scrapbookers who can just dump a lot of patterned papers and embellishments in a single LO and still look clean and not busy. Since I'm a working Mom, I'm ecstatic just to finish 1 or 2 LO/s a month. My subject is mostly my daughter Gaby so I'm glad that she'll have a sibling soon (another backlog on the way too).
