Boot Camp Layouts.....

I can truly say that I have been scrapping up a storm.  Last month, I joined Blue Bazaar's Bootcamp wherein all participants are required to create 50 layouts based on the given Pagemap Sketches.  I joined this for the reason to get my scrapping mojos back. Second, is to use up most of the scrapbook materials I have been hoarding specially pattern papers. and of course, enjoy the scrapbooking process.  I am more than halfway done and I have until the end of the month to finish all 50 layouts (really keeping my fingers crossed that I can finish this). And will be posting 2 layouts at a time on each of my blog post. (no specific order)

Sketch 37

Lots of Sewing on my layouts and cards!

It is very rare that I use my sewing machine on sewing clothes.  First, i dont know how to make clothes (I wish I know how to...) I just juse it to adjust the length of our jeans and pants - thats it!  However, on paper.... I just love using it!  Stitching really looks nice on pages and cards and I think, i will never get tired of using it on my projects.
For my first page...  this is one of my fave layouts for the year,,,,  Its just a picture layout but I was able to incorporate lots of scraping techniques on this one - layering, misting, sewing, tearing, distressing, DIY flower embellies.

Updated Settings means Updated Posts!!!

Just when I was so lazy to update my blog... I had a chat with a good friend Alby.  And I told her... I was so lazy to upload maybe because I'm having a hard time uploading pictures here in blogger - I have to move and arrange all the photos as I post, which was consuming most of my time!  Then she gave me the solution to my problem.... She told me that I just have to update my blogger settings!!!  And guess what?! It worked!!!  Thanks so much Alby for sharing this tip to me!!!  Now, I don't have any reasons for not posting regularly... because I'm still scrapping, in fact, I have so many finish layouts, cards, OTP and news to share.
