Tan, Chocolate Brown, Rusty Orange, and Royal Blue

This is the color combo for this week at Design Dollies. Definitely not my usual colors, hehe! BUT I'm not one to back out from a challenge (especially a scrapbooking challenge).  Here's my layout:

I know the page is filled up with photos but it is so hard to choose photos from our recent trip. Hehe! I hope you get to try out this combo. This is our last for the year so layout/projects are not due until 02 January 2011!!! I heard that the prize for the color challenges will be fabulous so LINK up your projects HERE! This is also my last layout as DT for the dollies. It was an amazing 6 months and I loved every minute of it!

Nautical but Nice!

nautical = of, relating to, or involving ships, navigation, or sailors [from Latin nauticus, from Greek nautikos, from naus ship] Source: Collins English Dictionary

That's our elements challenge for the Design Dollies this week and I think its cute! So this is about anything nautical. I used the compass which is a navigational tool as inspiration for my layout and used beach photos too! Here's my take:

I used photos from our recent trip to Pagudpud. I really love this beach. The water was so blue and the shoreline was wide. Too bad the waves are quite strong this time of the year, maybe we should go back in the summer.

Okay, if you're done with Christmas shopping and wrapping gifts, then that means some scrappy time! I hope you get inspired with our challenge this week. Layouts for this theme are due on 20 December, at 12 midnight EST. Link up your layouts HERE!

Christmas is in the air!

Christmas is definitely just around the corner. I have started wrapping gifts but still have some shopping left to do. I feel the Christmas spirit and I'm inspired to create Christmas layouts too. Here's one of them. Photo was taken last year. This is also my layout for the Design Dollies sketch for the week.

I hope that inspite of the Christmas rush, you find time to create.  This is also something that I wish I can do.
Here's the sketch, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Link up your layouts HERE! Deadline is on 15 December at midnight EST.

I firmly believe that family is the greatest blessing that we have. Here's a layout of our recent family picture:

Used the beautiful Wonderfall collection from Websters Pages. Thanks for looking!

With my sister living abroad with her family, it is not often that we get to have our picture taken together. Can't they make air fare a little cheaper? LOL! Here's a layout using a photo of my mom, my sister and yours truly.

This layout is based on the sketch for this week over at the dollhouse! Here's the sketch:

I know we can all feel the Christmas rush, but if your'e feeling crafty, try out this sketch and link up your layout HERE. Deadline is on 08 December at midnight EST! Have fun!
