"Where there is love, there is life"

Joanne says, KAYA!

This is a minibook I created of Jeff Lopez's beautiful pictorial of my family in Westgrove Heights, Silang Cavite. Sept 1 2007
I have been working on the layouts but I thought a mini can one day be on our mantle piece to show off these beautiful images. (when we have our own home here one day)
It has captured the love our family for each other and the last page caps it off as we leave our old home for greener pastures (OZ).... thus the photo going up the hill with our backs turned.
A simple mini with very little embellishments -- only stickers, rubons, and pattern paper.
However loaded with lotsa love and beautiful memories.
(I will cover it with transparency to protect this from dust and climate)

About ME:
I am Joanne Figueroa Yap, mother of 3 boys, Jacob, Jerome and Jorel. I am happily married to my loving hubby, Patrick. At present living in the land down under, Sydney Australia. I am a stay at home, 24/7 on call house manager of the Yap family household.

Back in Manila, I began Scrappin' Moms with my beautiful friends April, Mia, SL, Ria, Pia, Liza and Iris. My passion for scrapbooking has really brought me to places I never realised I would ever be at. I have met beautiful people through this hobby and they have all enriched my life immensely....

My layout creations are my way of preserving our precious memories and expressing my love for the people that I love. They call me the massacre queen because I can never leave a patttern paper unturned, it has to be cut with precision. This is whats common in my all my layouts, the 3d elements that I create myself. All this are my labor of love.

It is my hope I can reactivate my scrapbooking social life and work here in Sydney again, one day when the kids are more adjusted here....
Sydney, Australia

HI Joanne! You have a hand of a surgeon with that kind of cutting. It looks like it was stamped. I wish I took up paper tole too. Too bad Glorietta 2 closed up.
