Simply Wacky

Sheryl says, Kaya!

For some reason, I got all excited seeing Marj's challenges for this month. I thought of a reason why but I came up with three! First, It could be because I've been a long-time fan of Marj's works and her enviable ability to make everything she creates look REALLY good. Second, it could also be that for the first time we are veering away from the usual one-LO-a-month challenge and have not 2 or 3 but 4 LOs (!) to create this month. And third, maybe because it'll be a first for me to use a bow on my LO, something that I have long wanted to do.

Whichever. I am happy I got to scrapbook these photos of Lilaa's silly trait. She likes to wait 'til she hears the shutter click before she makes a face, stick her tongue out, roll her eyes, and guffaw to make sure I capture it. Well, I did. And as my little harmless revenge, I got to scrap these to show to her future crushes harharhar :-D

Materials:
Bazill CS; AC Amplified Dancing Queen; Jenni Bowlin Studio PP206; Simply scrappy acrylic bracket; MM Sticker Canvas Alpha Passport; MR arrow chipboard; MM paint; AC white flowers; brads; ribbon

Journaling:
Sigh. There's just no way I could take take a decent photo of you as of late. You simply feel obliged to give me a wacky shot like these. But I guess I shouldn't fret and whether I like it or not, I should simply scrap everything- the good, the bad, and the wacky! - Aug 2008, Pots 'n Noodle resto; Lilaa @ thirty-five months; Megamall, Phils.

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.
