Happy Birthday HARVEY!!!

Today is my little boy's birthday. I can't believe that he is already four years old!!! Earlier, my husband and I have attended a school event which he demonstrated to us the things that he can now do in school (will be posting a video of that-very funny-soon). Gosh, it made us realize that our baby is growing up fast. I really wish he can be my baby forever....
Here he is now... Don't you think kids grow up so fast? Agree?
happy birthday baby!!! i love you! wishing you good health always!!!

Wedding Souvenirs...

Aside from scrapbooking, I also love beadworks!!! For the past few days, I have been making these rosaries for my cousin-in-law's wedding. She is going to give it away as souvenirs to her guests and the bigger one for the Principal Sponsors. Yup, I have created 2 kinds! One is the bracelet type (150 pcs.) and the other (16pcs) is the whole rosary! And last weekend, I was so busy doing these. I was busy packaging and making some more rosaries. Here is what my messy table looked like last weekend... (until this morning...) And here are my rosaries...

and these are for the sponsors...These are all packed right now and ready to be shipped!!! Unfortunately, I could not attend the wedding because it is my Son's Birthday too!!! I really hope the couple like it!! Best Wishes!

P.S.: I would like to specially give my hubby a SUPER THANK YOU for taking over some of my household duties while I was finishing these!!! You're really the best! MWAH!

Get Organized - My 2nd Project for BNB

For my second project for Buzz and Bloom, we were asked to make something that will help us in planning, keep track of goals etc. So I made this very colorful organizer! Ive gathered some thick paper for my pages and Illustration board for the cover of my mini organizer. Here are some pics...Closer look...I've used CB Head Start: Back to Square One - Large on my cover. I painted the Buzz and Bloom Chipboard with yellow acrylic paint then sprayed a little of the glimmer mist over it. My mini album was 8x9 inches in size. So I cut the excess portion of the chipboard in order to fit the cover and placed it on top of the pink cardstock which I used to cover my mini organizer. I've used CB ABC: Fat Albert Alphabet - Mini to create the title. Painted it with white acrylc paint and placed some dots using 3d paint.

I've also created monthly inner pages...using some BNB stamps and a lot of doodling!

You can view other projects done by my fellow Dts here. Thanks so much for looking!
