Momma's Joy

Tna says, KAYA!

This is going to be the first time that I'll actually send in a layout inspired by a Kaya challenge. Being a working mom, I usually end up setting aside pages that only get to the conceptualization stage. But challenges and contests motivate me to get these pages done. I am not into the winning (but it would really be pleasing to win, of course), but just having a finished layout added to my album, for me, is already a job well done.

daddy & joaquin + silly faces & perfect timing
is equal to momma's joy

Materials Used:
Black DCWV and kraft cardstock; felt shapes; a 2-cm ribbon; AC Thickers Lax; MM tiny alphas; gold thread; white posies; black acrylic paint; Scenic Route rubon; Inksentials white pen; black gem; dymo.

Techniques Used:
paper cutting for the background shape, sewing, paper tearing, and inking.

About ME:
am kristina. tna to many. mom to 6-year-old-joaquin and partner to ruben. my boys are often my scrapping subjects. simple everyday activities surely becomes interesting as long as these boys are together. they are indeed my joy.

i have always been crafty much like my sister and my mother. and i started scrapbooking in 2004, making the most of scrapbooking materials that i can find in local bookstores until i stumbled upon the scrappin mom site and the ever-growing local scrapbooking resources in 2007. since then, it has become an addiction (in a nice way, i guess - heehee) and it also became my stress reliever.
