It's been awhile...

Its been a while since I posted pictures of our family and life's happenings here in my blog. I've been meaning to do it for the loongggggeesttt time but i dont know... everytime I plan to, something gets in the way or.. (excuses, excuses hihih).

It was my 3rd month here in Sydney last November 2. Time really flies... so far everything is fine over here. Of course, adjustments are still there but since the 3 of us are now together, we find each challenge, lighter.

During my first month here, I met with 2 awesome Pinay scrappers. One is Joanne and the other is Rox whom I just only known online. It was fun meeting with them and having a few chats with them. Beside Joanne is my best friend Cherrie and to the other side is Patrick.
And here I am with Roxanne during her visit here in Sydney. (see you soon again!)Then, here are a few pics of us wandering the city....
Harvey, waiting for his train ride...at the city...Will try my best to share more pictures of us here in my future posts. Hope you will all watch out for it. Thanks for dropping by!!!

Scrap Your Pants Off - Week 1

It's been a long time since I entered a scrapping competition. And it took me days to think and re-think to finally take the plunge considering that mojos were nowhere to be found and most of my scrapbooking stuff is not here with me. I only have a few of my fave papers here with me plus I've done a little shopping online for embellies and other stuff.

I joined Artypants Scrap Your Pants Off Contest. Week 1 challenge is: Create something Old - a material from you stash that is 1 year old, Something New - stuff to be found at the new products section of the store, Something Borrowed - Scraplift a layout from the gallery and Something Blue.

Here is a sneak of my entry....
