This is the word over at Bird is the Word and here's my layout:

Title: Remember....this is what we came here for
Materials Used: Websters' Pages, Dusty Attic, Pink Paislee, Prima, Making Memories, Technique Tuesday

Yipee! I was finally able to scrap one of the most important photos from our trip last year. A family picture like this doesn't happen often because of the distance so this photo is extra special! More than the sight seeing, spending time with family was the highlight of our trip.

Fresh Start for 2012

My word for 2012 is OPTIMISM. I know I worry a lot so I need to stay postive on everything. Here's my layout about my resolutions and hopes for 2012. Its kinda personal so I hid some of my journaling under the photo. This picture was taken last October 2011 during my birthday bash with the LB Scrapaholics.

Journaling; New Year is all about
getting another chance. A chance to forgive, to do better,
to do more, to give more, to love more, and STOP worrying about what if
and start embracing what would be.

Materials Used: OA & SEI pps, Dusty Attic Chipboard, Prima flowers, Maya Rd pearl pin, Pink Paislee vintage spool, OA letter stickers, and Tim Holtz die

Some close-ups:

What's my inspiration for this layout? Well, its challenge #213 over at Color Combos Galore. I used the lovely colors, and was inspired by the theme and the clock in the photo. Here's what the the challenge is all about...

Brand New

Starting the year right with two new layouts....

Title: Naughty or Nice

Used a mix of Fancy Pants and Simple Stories for this one. This layout is inspired by the challenge at Scrapbookers Anonymous which is all about paint, ink, mist and masking. I spiced up my background by using a lace cardstock (I hoarded a lot of this) as mask and used green Maya Mist. I also distressed the edges of the layout using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. In short, I had fun making this layout! One thing about this layout....the pictures are from 2010!

But wait, there's more....

Title: Hanging out at the Beach
Journaling: For sure, Ally will have fun playing in the sand.
(Weekend getaway at Bolinao, not even a storm can stop us, Aug 29, 2011)

Used Simple Stories' 100 days of summer pps and CS stickers for this one. I really love this collection and I still have lots of pps left to play with.

I'm so glad that slowly I'm getting back into the groove of scrapping. I hope you are scrapping too!

Welcome 2012

Happy New Year to everyone!!! Its almost a month since my last post but December will always be the busiest month of the year. I only managed to finish 2 layouts!!! Oh well its a brand new year and I'm optimistic in a lot if not ALL aspects of my life. Scrapping wise I am really hoping that I'll be more productive. For 2011, I only finished 79 layouts compared to 121 in 2010. That's a difference of 42 layouts!

On the first day of the year, I finished a layout that I started in 2011. I hope this means I'll be busy scrapping the whole year round.

Here's the page I finished. Simple but sweet.

Journaling: No one said Christmas pics have to be formal. Wacky photos are in! (Xmas 2010)
 Used  a mix of My Minds Eye, Websters, and Simple Stories for this one.

Here's a closer look at the glittered brads on the tree:

That's it folks! I wish all of you a great and fabulous year ahead! Let's keep on scrapping!
