Hugs for you

Cabbie says, KAYA!

As guilty as I am after not uploading entries the past few months due to heavy domestic duties, here I am-- trying to cope up as much as I can in a marathon. Anyway, I created this simple layout using one of my favorite papers-- the passport line of Making Memories. I also decided to use a BW pic taken during the field trip of my 2 sons and would you believe who took this picture? My 5 year old boy!!! Sometimes, a child can be as innocent as he is as he presses the shutter-- devoid of hand movements and doubt of how he would be able to do it.

And he was able to take a good pic indeed and that's why I am scrapping it with worthiness. Much as I would prefer to tear the papers by hand rather than cut them with scissors-- there are rules to abide here. Thanks Marix for the wonderful challenge, I did get the chance to use some edgers!!!

hidden journaling:
It was a fun day with you both... though it was drizzling a bit, I really had a great time from the bus to the tour itself. Lunch was a challenge because we have to consume the food inside the bus to save time. What an exciting trip to boast! 'Till the next one, my dears.

Materials used:
MM passport papers, metal clips and embellishments; Inque botique felt; Autumn leaves stamp and buttons; Bazzill chipboard alphas; MM tiny alphas; chalbox ink; ranger distress ink; stampin up puncher

Techniques used:
distressing, inking, cutting, stamping

About Me:

I am Cabbie Lopez, mom to 4 boys. I am also a physician by profession but opted to stay at home for the good moment. I have been scrapbooking the acid-frees since year 2006 and indeed, scrapbooking is a therapy for me. I am also humbled to be named Idol 2007... I love to explore new techniques and create shabby chic layouts but of course I can be flexible too! I also love to alter and do minibooks! My passion extends to reading books and collecting journal books and going cyber too! Scrapbooking created a new world for me, a kind of new dimension in my so called domestic world.
