Kaya 19-4: Worry Free

This is my last and final entry for Marj's challenge over at the Kaya blog. And I have made a break through in doing this because until now, i really cannot believe that I was able to do this in less than an hour! This Lo is simple but I have always known myself as a slower scrapper, choosing which papers to use in my LO sometimes takes me forever hihihi. I was also the buzzer beater for this round... Sharing to you my double pager entry (yup, double pager in less that 1 hour hihihi, oh boy im so proud of myself hihihi)(sorry for the photo... this was taken at night... will try to take a good pic of this in the morning and replace it) Here's a closer look at each page...Title: Worry Free
Journaling: Everytime I see these 2, they are always havin fun. I'll just hope they will stay this way.... happy and worry-free... even if the other one grows up and the other grows old.
Materials Used: Basic grey - Off beat pps; pebeo 3d paints; AC thicker; Colorbox Ink - raven black; DCWV white cardstock

Time to JAM!!!!

Last Saturday November 29, I attended MLA's and Scrapbook's Hawaii Mini Jam. And as always, it was one fun event! I was also asked to demo a simple project using acrylic sheets. i was so nervous to do the demo but all went well... (except I for got to bring my bind it all machine. Special thanks to Helga for making me use her new pink bind-it-all). Here is the project ive made using acrylic sheets. Nette provided me with some Chatterbox - Botanico goodies to work with. here are a few close ups... This picture is not permanent on the acrylic... meaning, you can change it form time to time...I have incorporated a small memo pad and a calendar with out the stand (thanks to April for teaching us how to make one.) so that my wall decor will be more functional. they are also removable so incase you want to put in a new calendar and notepad, you may do so. The bottom panel contains a quote about our pic.
Here are some pics during the event...
This is Donna doing the demo on Glimmer MistYoyin doing the demo on Alcohol Inks (pic coutesy of yoyin)Me on acrylic sheets ( pic courtesy of yoyin)The ladies.... (3rd pic cortesy of yoyin)and some of the finished projects....

We had so much fun during the event. And Thanks to Ms Nette for inviting me over. Until the next ScrapJam!!!
