Yippie! It's here! my 7G Prize from Coordinates Collections

I was out of the house the whole morning to do some errands. When I got back I saw this white paper inserted on the door of our house. Oh my! Its a post office notice!!! I became so excited that I immediately rush to the post office to get my package. On my way to the PO, I was thinking... oh no, another encounter with the post office. I had a "not so good" experience the first time a scrapbooking prize was sent to me.. I hope this time it will be pleasant. I ran to the counter and i was assisted by this PO officer. He was very helpful and asked me to pay 35 pesos to the cashier. (Imagine, the first time i got a package, i was not even asked to go to the cashier!!!, The man that assist me got my payment and God only know where it went.) Then after paying to the cashier, he gave my box to me and I was really walking -all smiles!!! I felt I was like a child again-- I cannot wait until I got home to open the box! I kept on shaking it hehehe. It came form Coordinates Collections. I won their 7G Challenge! Read here for the announcement. As soon as I got home, I opened it and wow! lots of 7Gypsies goodies! Thanks Jamie for this wonderful prize!!! She even gave me a not saying... "Congrats and enjoy your goodies!!!" I will Jamie, I will! Thank you so much!

Lovin U Mini-Book with tin case

A friend of hubby asked me to make a mini-book. He plans to give it as a gift to her special someone. I was so excited about the whole idea plus It really makes me happy to create something that might bring joy to someone receiving it. I planned on making it a few days before the his deadline (Jan. 31) but i changed my mind... I realized that the pictures he sent me will not fit the album that I was planning to use. So ive decided to use a bigger album. And since I have lots of things to attend to, i realized that the deadline is fast approaching. I made this album the night of Jan. 30 and finished it Jan.31 at 9 a.m.! I must beat the deadline!!! I took pictures of it around 9:30 a.m. then off to bed... I woke up around 2:30 pm. Henry asked me if the album was ready, because he's leaving 3 pm. It was really hard letting go of something you've worked on for so hard. But it ok if it will make someone very happy (I hope... hihi) Hope Claire will like it. Here's the mini book i've made.
materials used: (i list tomorrow)
