Rose Garden

Marissa says, KAYA!

I love viewing distressed layouts but seeing that there is too much work and time involved, I decided it is not for me. This one gave me headaches!!! But I love you dearly, Marj. Despite the headaches I found this fun and satisfying. Mauulit kaya? I enjoyed it so kakayanin ko ulit.

Thanks, Marj!

This picture of DH and me was taken 2 months ago at the Chicago Botanic Gardens.

About Me

I like convenience in making layouts. Digital scrapbooking gives me that. I can make a lot in one sitting, not to mention that I have no storage problems and I can bring copies with me wherever I go to show off.


I love creating with my hands, thus I also make traditional layouts. Will anyone now tell me how to store these bulky pages?


Thanks for looking.

Hi craft Fairy, I like the flourishes you've used bagay na bagay, and the lighting effect on the Lo's photo very dramatic.
