Meet our October challenger, TIMI MERCADO

I am Timi Mercado a college teacher by profession, married to Danny for 14 years and a mom to Jigs and Dannah. I started scrapbooking in the year 2000 so that makes it nine years and still counting. I completed my first scrapbook in Feb 2000. It was not as good as my scrapbooks now, very crude shall I say but it paved the way to my journey to the world of scrapbooking! But it was only in 2003 that I discovered that there were materials really intended for this craft and only in 2006 that I began to make 12x12 LOs using all those acid-free stuff and the rest is shall I say history.

When I started scrapbooking, it was just a hobby. Now, it’s a passion and a way of life.There are many reasons why I love to CREATE: to preserve wonderful memories of myself and the persons important to me; my scrapbooks will be my legacy to the future generations of my family; it also sees me through during not so good times. Just seeing what I have accomplished in the past nine years is enough to take away the blues and all those stresses; and it is a way of expressing myself.

The challenge

How time flies! It's my birth month once again. Another year older and I'd like to believe, another year wiser. This is my second birthday challenge, the first of which was on my blog last year. Now for my challenge...
I just love lace! I enjoy incorporating lace on my layouts. I love the romantic feel and the feminine touch it adds to a layout. Since I love lace very much, I have a collection of different types of lace (from heavy lace to sheer ones) in different colors and widths. For my challenge, I'd like you to incorporate at least three different types of lace on your layout but the twist it use these laces in at least two different ways. You may use it as background or border, tie it, pleat it or make it into ruffles. Your choice! The theme is up to you as well as the number of photos you would like to use in your layout.

Here are the requirements:

And then we have the usual Kaya requirements:

1) Layouts can be 12x12 or 8.5x 11, traditional or digital.
2) The layouts should be specifically made for this challenge.
3) You can submit as many layouts as you want but you will only be entered once in the drawing for traditional and/or digital.
4) Deadline for submissions is on: October 31, 2009, 11:59 PM, Manila Time.

The Prize

Hope to see your entries soon!
Thank you!
