Please view my webshots.

Yesterday I have finally updated my webshots account. I uploaded my layouts there. Please do visit the site. Link is on the sidebar. Thank you!

I'm on Basic Grey Gallery!

Early this week I recieved an email from Basic Grey telling me that my layout was chosen to be posted on their gallery. This was the first time I tried to submit a layout to them and I'm glad they chose it. I'm very comfortable using Basic Grey papers mainly because of their distressed look, which is my style. Now I am more encouraged to use these products!

Here is the letter.

Congratulations, your layout has been selected to appear in our on-line
gallery at! We appreciate your time and talent and
thank you for using BasicGrey papers and embellishments.

Baby Ike can smile!

During the first month of Baby Ike it was hard for us to make him smile. In fact he never smiles unless he is asleep. Maybe angels are playing with him in his dreams. Then during the week of October 15-19 exactly after his christening and when he turned 2 months he smiled at us. He already communicates with his kus and aws. He responds to us. He now looks at us. We can see that his eyes are really expressive. Seeing him respond to us makes me really proud that I am his mother

Welcome to the Christian World

Last October 14, 2007, Baby Ike had his christening at St. Therese of the Child Parish Church.

A couple of my childhood friends, Chris and Eds, were ninangs.

The LB Scrapaholics were also ninangs. Reception followed after the ceremony at a resort in Asiaville, Bay, Laguna. Foods were flowing and there was also Lechon which was given as a gift by two of the ninongs. Boy, it was a fun and tiring day.


Joanne, one of my scrapbooking friends, is leaving for Australia tomorrow. She is one of the greatest person I’ve ever know. Imagine how close I felt the first time we met? She immediately invited us to her home. She was the one who introduced us to the world of “acid-free”. She is truly miss congeniality.

Last month she finally visited us in Los Banos. She let us play with her new Fancy pants Stamps. Then for lunch we brought her to Kamayan sa Palaisdaan and fed her until she was really full. We really enjoyed that day.

Then last Saturday, we had a despidida party for her. Tear kept flowing throughout the program. We will truly miss her.

Another Week Ahead

Scrapfest is finally over! After waiting for so long. It was truly a fun and exciting day. As usual I enjoyed looking at the yummy goodies brought by the suppliers. I felt like a kid in a candy store again. And of course it was so hard to control myself to buy new stuff! It was a scrapable moment not only because of the scrapfest but because this was the first time I left my baby. It was so hard. I felt guilty leaving him. Well that is past now.

Another week is about to start and it would definitely be very hectic! I would be preparing for my son's baptism. It will coincide will my niece's first birthday party. I am so excited because this will be the first party organized for my son. hehehe (another scrapable moment) All of the LB Scrapahoics will be ninangs.Soon I will be posting pictures of the event.
