Weekend Escape

Alby says, KAYA!

Take two!!!
Since I started scrapping, I've been using digital elements on my layout, usually in the form of printed journaling, text on photos and even printed layout titles. Sometimes I add digital brushes on my photos, too. Even my past Kaya layouts usually had digital elements in them. I had no idea then that what I was doing was called Hybrid Scrapbooking.

For this challenge, I scrapped photos taken during one of our weekend escapes to Sonya's Garden. Since we live in Cavite, we sometimes drive to Tagaytay on weekends to relax and indulge in the food offerings of the various restaurants that have sprouted in the area.

Nothing beats stress better than a quiet weekend amidst a lush garden. That's why Sonya's Garden is one of our favorite hangouts. While Ariel is not too crazy about the food (he's not fond of greens), the restful ambiance more than make up for the lack of gustatory delight. The lush greens and colorful blooms relax both our mind and body. Can't wait for our next escape!

About Me:

I'm Alby and I've been scrapping for 3 years now. I'm mainly a traditional scrapper but I sometimes do digital layouts. Scrapping is my creative work out and I love it (if I can only lose weight through scrapping, I will do it more often!). I am blessed to have the love and support of my hubby who is almost always featured in my layouts. Check out my blog for more boring details about me and to see some of my work.
