Alby says, KAYA!

I like that this challenge prompted me to use some of my pearls. Like most of my embellishments, my pearls are safely hidden in my drawer waiting for that "perfect" layout. Well, there really is no such thing and I keep reminding myself to just use them. After all, if I find myself needing more pearls (or other products, for that matter) for that "perfect" layout, I can always buy from the many retailers we have in the Metro.

Anyway, here is my layout.

Here's a closer look at the butterfly where I added some pearls on the wings.

God created a beautiful world for us to live in, and someday I hope to see most of it. For now, I am content to explore the country God planted me in, as well as the neighboring areas. But someday, God-willing, I will see the world.

About Me:
I'm Alby - weekend scrapper, weekday corporate slave, nightly internet stalker, blessed with a sweet and loving hubby and surrounded with four playful canine babies. Together with my hubby, I love exploring new places be it remote islands of the Philippines, religious and historical monuments or nature reserves elsewhere in the world. I document our exploits in my travel and leisure blog and once I have the photos printed, I scrap them and post in my scrapbooking blog. See you around!

Love the LO, love the story! Here's wishing you more travels that through your eyes, I'd see the world too! TFS.

Thanks girls! Had fun with this lo. And it's not my usual colors. Takot ako sa medyo bright. So I'm happy to deviate from my usual palette. :D Happy birthday Janis!
