What's Goin On?

Last week has been a really busy week for me. I was busy with work and preparing for this little girl's graduation.

Julia graduated from Pre-school and is moving up to grade school by June. We are so proud of you!

On the graduation ceremony itself, they (the graduates) were asked to give their parents a letter that they wrote. I admit this made me cry...

And to celebrate her graduation and the start of summer, we headed off to the beach!
Julia enjoyed picking tiny shells from the shore.

Ally simply loved floating in the water.

We stayed at Acuatico Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas. The sand is definitely not fine if you'll compare it to Boracay, but it is just barely 2 hours away. I loved the infinity pool and the Balinese inspired villas.

Inspite of the hectic sked, I still managed to join the weekend of challenges at Scrappin Kids. Here are the layouts I finished:

Issa's Challenge: use bright colors and mis-matched fonts

Wendy's Chipboard Challenge: alter chipboard in 3 different ways. I sprayed glimmer mist and then applied glossy accents on the alphas; painted and then stamped on the flourish chipboard; and covered the flower chipboard with patterned paper. Incidentally, my layout won in this challenge! Yipee!

Since school is out, Julia joined me in scrapping. We still have problems with alignment and choosing papers, but she really loves to scrap with me! Here are her layouts, and guess what? She won in the Song Title challenge! This really made her day, I'm sure she'll be scrapping a lot this summer.

Viv's Song Title Challenge:

Issa's Bright Colors Challenge:

Yvette and Issa awarded me with this! Thanks guys!

I'm passing it on to Pia, Liza, Dinah, & Mia!

Thanks for the blog award Chiqui!

Question ... how was your vacation at Acuatico? I found their site early March and I was impressed sa mga pictures. Ok ba talaga? And worth it ba ang rates nila? Medyo pricey din kasi eh. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

BTw, you have beautiful layouts esp. It's a Girl Thing ... fave ko yun : )
