"Congratulations, Puzzle Mansion!" LO for the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge #20

The photo on this layout was taken 4th quarter last year 2012.
On a chance, we decided to go to Tagaytay,
thinking of the possibility of getting around to reach
Puzzle Mansion.
And we weren't let down as we easily found our way to their place.

This LO was created to congratulate Puzzle Mansion's Gina Lacuña
for bagging the Guiness Book of World Record for
the biggest puzzle collection around the world.

With Hey Kessy as our sponsor,
I procured a few rolls of washi tape at Craft Manila.
This I made use on my LO below:

SUPPLIES: Cardstock: Filstar Distributors Corp., American Crafts; Pattern Papers: October Afternoon’s Very Merry Christmas, Robin’s Nest; Washi Tapes: Hey Kessy; Other: baker’s twine, buttons, acrylic stamp; TOOLS: Puncher: Martha Stewart.

Here's the inspiration sketch by LG for
the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog:
