"New Year 2011" LO for the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge #11

This month,
we will only be having (1) sketch challenge
due to the Holiday Season.
have another sketch by
Melissa . . .

I have been scrapping family photos since 2010 and I promised myself that I won't stop scrapping or creating layouts with family photos.  All of these goes to my family scrapbook albums that I will cherish forever.  I wish as 2013, a new year begins, that our family continue to have wonderful moments together to capture various occasions, milestones, joys and sorrows together - never ever separated by trials, sorrow and obstacles.  May we continue these moments as I continue to create layouts capturing these thru photos, journalings capturing emotions or just plain details of events - all in a days toilings in my craft room.  May these never cease nor end as these brings the essence to my creative spark laboring with love on each piece of art work, I call an LO.  Though my LO is not purely of me, but it espouses the cause of my work and what forms my creative dream.  I'm entering this to Berry71bleu challenge.

I had been saving these Bo Bunny papers that I won from a challenge way back in 2010 at Colorful Creations.  I’ve made use of the other papers and left this set for future use expecting for a pretty layout out of it.  And, I guess I wasn’t dismayed or let down for the layout created below exceeded my expectation by far.  Thanks to a sketch by Melissa Bonifacio for Sketch Challenge #11 DT requirement for the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog.

My Sample LO:
SUPPLIES: Pattern Paper: Bo Bunny; Die Cut Paper: Bo Bunny; Foam Alphabet Stickers: Filstar Distributors Corp.; Flowers: Prima; Cut-outs: Bo Bunny; 3D Stickers: Bo Bunny; Rhinestones: Prima;  Thread: DMC; Other: big doily, glitter glue
