This is GYSO's sketch #13 and its up on the blog! Check out the DT's different layouts coz I love the variety in the layouts this week.

Here's my layout:

Used Basic Grey Olivia for this layout of me and DD Julia. She's really very sweet and loves giving us hugs and kisses!

Its another busy week on the homefront, I hope things slow down a bit so I can create more. My scrapping output this year has really gone down. I want to scrap MORE!

Summer vacation is here!

Summer vacation is here!!! Ally is done for school for this school year and Julia has only a few days left of school. Exams are over but she still has to go to school for some practices. I'm excited for summer more teachers, no more books! LOL! The weather is quite erratic though. Not the typical summer weather that we are used to. Anyway, I was finally able to scrap Julia's 2nd grade pics. Here it is:

I've noticed that I've been using the blue-green-yellow combo lately and I like it. It's nice to take a break from using pink all the time. I used the Little Yellow Bicycle TWIG collection for this one with bits and pieces of Prima, Sassafrass and October Afternoon. Did some misting too!

What are your plans for summer?

Just the Way You Are

I absolutely love Bruno Mars' song Just the Way You Are. At present it is the ringtone of my phone, hehe. I also sing the song to Ally and most of the time she asks me to stop. I guess she doesn't like my singing. LOL! Lately though, she been singing the song and its really cute hearing it from a 4 year old.  Anyway, the song is the inspiration for this layout:

Used Prima for this one. Layout is based on a Pencil Lines sketch.

The Story of Us

GetYourSketchOn #11 is up on the blog! It's a simple sketch but with a lot of possiblities....

I scrapped a family picture, taken on the first day of the year 2011. At first I wanted to scrap a layout without flowers since DH is in the photo but I wasn't successful. LOL! I decided to use masculine colors instead. Added yellow to brighten the layout too. I used Basic Grey Marjolaine for this one. Okay, here's the layout with a few close-ups:

Now we want to see your layouts! Link up your layout HERE for a chance to win some goodies from Consumer Crafts! Deadline is on Sunday!

Not my usual combo

I'm the type of scrapper that likes trying out different stuff. I don't like it when my layouts look the same. I like variety in my pages which is why I tried out the color combo for the week at The Color Room. Its definitely not my usual colors: red (or dark orange), orange, brown and light pink.

Here's my layout:

I used bits and pieces of Graphic45, Fancy Pants, October Afternoon, and Making Memories for this one. Also did a bit of masking using a Tim Holtz mask and some paint. I used a photo of DD Julia, taken in Pagudpud. The beach there is really beautiful and she enjoyed playing in the sand.
