Top Designer at Bad Girls

While doing the SM Idol Challenge, I decided to join Bad Girls 2008 Top Designer Academy. There are 6 classes and we go through one class each week. And each week, the ones who make it to the "honor roll" are through to the next round while the ones who don't are "expelled".

Here are the layouts I made for each of the class.

Class 1 - Layering
Title: Let's Celebrate

Class 2 - Mixing Patterned Papers
Title: 2 Of A Kind

Class 3 - Less Is More
Title: Tiny Tot

Class 4 - Accessorize
Title: Thanks, Mom

Class 4 was my last at Bad Girls. Yes, I got expelled! I'm glad that I joined though as I was able to learn new things and I was able to make 4 new pages!

Thanks for looking! :)

I'm In!

Yay! I made it to the Top 10 finalists of the Scrappin' Moms Idol Challenge! The final round will be on Oct. 4th for an on-the-spot challenge. We'll be given 3 hours to complete our entry. Gosh, I don't know how I'm going to do that. I'm such a slow scrapper plus I'll be with 9 very very talented scrappers. Yikes, good luck to me!

I promised myself though that I would not let this pressure me. I will be there on Saturday, will scrap as instructed, and will have as much fun as I can. After all, that's what scrapping should be, right? Fun.

See you on Saturday! :-)

Week #5 of the SM Idol 2 Challenge made me think a little more than usual. The challenge was to make an asymmetrically balanced layout. I'm sure most of us scrappers are not new to creating asymmetric pages with a breeze. We do it all the time, right? So why does it seem more difficult when you're consciously making the effort to make your page asymmetric? Weird, huh? Anyway, so I did this one layout which looked asymmetric at first...

...and now looks symmetric. Needless to say, I made another layout for this challenge. Hmmm, I guess I made the right decision because I made it to Round #6! Yay!

Here are a few photos during Butch's birthday party. I was so busy that night that I didn't have time to take pictures. Thanks to Butch's cousin Monchu for taking these.

Mid Life...

It's the big 4-0 for my DH today. Thank goodness I don't see signs of mid life crisis (not yet at leaor am I just missing them?). Anyway, He took the day off from work and so did I. We'll probably just stay home today. I don't have anything fancy planned as we will have family and some friends over for dinner tomorrow. Hmmm, there goes my day off. I think I'll do my food shopping now.

Happy birthday Butch! :)
