White With 1 layout and as promised, a small giveaway....

I have created this page for the White With 1 Challenge blog.  I'm having a wonderful time creating layouts for this challenge blog.  It really makes you dig your stash up... looking for all materials that will suit the required color for that particular month.  And for January, the requirement was to use navy blue and to incorporate banners!  and I was digging, I realized that in spite of all the papers and embellishments that I have been accumulating, I don't have much navy blue stuff in it!  -- I really cant believe it... but the good thing, I have my glimmer mists and inks to the rescue!!! Thus, making it possible for me to create this page.

Here is my page...
Title: My Boy
Materials Used: Scrapware Chipboard; Maya Road Chipboard - Car; Buzz and Bloom Chipboard, Fancy pants paper - polka dot and matting; Glimmer mist, Brilliance dark blue ink; Hampton Clear Stamps - Text Borders; MM dark Blue Paint

Another thing to share.... Valentine's day is just around the corner.... and I'm inviting everyone to my Valentine's day Card Class over at Catchy Crafts - Hornsby this coming Friday, Feb 4, 2011. Really hope to see you there.

And... before I forget... my birthday month is almost over... as promised, I have 2 small blog giveaways!!! I  hope that there are still a lot of you who visits my blog (fingers crossed!!!)

I have prepared 2 paper packs, all from We R Memory Keepers.
The first one is for my fellow scrappers back in the Philippines... (miss yah girls!)
 And the 2nd pack is for my fellow scrappers from around the world (anywhere, including Australia!!!)
Wanna win these? Simple, just leave a comment at the end of this post and state what country are you from.  You have until February 14 to do that and I will draw the 2 winners on February 15.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who always visits me in my little corner.  HUGS!

January - my birth month... plus new stuff to share.

Whew! time really flies fast.  Last 3rd of January, I just turned a year older.  Yep! I'm 33 already!!! And there is so much to be thankful for.  I want to thank the good Lord for a wonderful husband and adorable son.  For giving me such supportive parents and family - even if they are all back in the Philippines; for all my friends, who has been in-touch with me; for all my new found friends too.  For all the wonderful opportunities that I have received and are coming; For health and safety... everything.  My Birthday wish was...  to live long to be able to cherish more...
