"Home"

Sheryl says, Kaya!

I took this photo of my DH and DD Lilaa. It's one of those rare moments when she was just contented to settle into her dad's arms and suck her thumb. I think this is one of the most priceless moments of them together that I was able to capture.



Journaling:
No other place on earth can give you a sense of comfort, assurance, safety and belonging but in your Papa's arms.

Here, no words are needed.

You simply are HOME.

Papa & Lilaa 11.10.08


Materials:
Prima Corina Nielsen Designs "Whisper Collection" (whisper); KI memories Favorite Things collection; Tres Jolie Birthday Boy Stripe; MR chipboards ; Prima journaling book; Prima bling; MAMBI embellishments; Prima Felt alpha; ZIG vellum writer (red & black); embossing powder; embossing ink

About me:
Happy Mama to now happier Lilaa and Maia (ages 3 & 1.5 years old, respectively); wife to my one big love. Rekindled my love affair with Scrapbooking in May 2006. I c0-own and co-manage an online bookstore Bookoto.com with a good friend Julie Kelly. I also dabble in freelance writing in my spare time.

I am into books (various genre), foreign art films with high preference for the classics, and I'm also learning photography one click at a time. Now that I stay at home full -time, I hope to do more good use of my hands.

Virtually, I have moved to my new home here. Though you can always come by here.

thanks, Gracie. Kagabi pa tapos yan but I had to wait for morning to take a photo. I use ambient morning light, no flash, when taking photos of LOs.

Can't wait to see yours, too! :-)
