Kaya 31 Winner

Happy holidays to everyone. We will be greeting the New Year in just a few hours and would like to close 2009 with the winner of Kaya 31. Thank you to Nina, Ching, Isah Mae, Cathy & Alby for being able to join the challenge and to Cabbie for being a good sport and submitting her ATC's inspite of being late. So even if there were just a few submissions, there was an abundance of inspiration and creativity.

To choose the winner I just wrote the names on strips of paper, folded them up and asked my granddaughter Sophia to pick one.

Congratulations Cathy!

Alby's ATCs

Alby says, KAYA!

I love making ATCs and I wanted to make a lot of them for this month's challenge. In fact, I made this series a few weeks ago and I had planned on making at least four more. I had not planned on having a very hectic November and December. So I guess there won't be any more ATC's for me the rest of the year.

Anyway, here's the series I made. The title is "Jesus is the Reason" - a little reminder of why we're celebrating Christmas.

Various scraps of patterned paper; Kraft Paper - Bazzil; Ink - VersaFine

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!

Cathy's ATCs

Cathy says, KAYA!

These ATCs were inspiredby Tim Holtz' 12 tags of Christmas. This was such a good challenge! Thanks!

About ME:

I'm a scrapaholic! Started scrap shopping when there were barely any suppliers here and that was 7 years ago. Since I only had my own scrapbook room last year. that's when I started scrapping and got introduced to the different suppliers here! Since then i've attended a few workshops and have only been active in blogging a month ago. These are also posted in my blog at:
