My internet connection is finally fixed! So now I'm back to share some October Afternoon creations. The first one is of my daughter with her friend Ethan. The picture was taken by my friend and talented photographer Jeff Lopez.



This 2nd one is of my friend April's son David. Pictures were taken by her equally talented husband Lumeng Lim.

Just a quick note to say hi. I want to thank all you wonderful people for dropping by my blog. My internet connection at home has been terrible for the past few days so I can't surf much. I just sneak in some computer time when I get a clear connection and then its gone again. I miss visiting your blogs and will hopefully have my internet problem fixed very very soon.

I have never really been excited about halloween... until I had a daughter of my own. Now I can't wait for trick or treat! I had so much fun last year with Nicole and she is looking forward to this year's celebration. The holidays will be busy so I thought of making a Halloween album in advance so that I just need to print the pictures and adhere it. "My Little Yellow Bicycle" sent me a complete line of their Frightful Collection, and I made this little book from their wonderful products. I'll post the entire album, when I have the pictures in it already. Thanks MYLYB!"



And here is a layout for Prima, using the Little Boo papers. I love this picture of Nicole. We were practicing "Scary Face" last year and this is the best that she could come up with. We have to try harder this year huh?:)



One more thing before I go... I was so honored and happy to have been invited by my friend Pia Lopez who designs for Daisy Bucket, to create a layout using Daisy Bucket products together with 7 of my scrapbook friends here from the Philippines. All 8 of us Filipina designers were featured in their Blog. Here is my creation. The picture was blurred because of the low light and because Nicole kept moving... and because I'm not a very good photographer at all!! LOL! But I loved that smile on her face. So I just enhanced it a bit, cut the image out, and recreated the play house by making one from paper.

October Kit at Badgirls

So who loves Pink Paislee, Rose Moka, and Basic Grey? Well I do!! And the October kit has those papers in them! I loved my kit and I was able to use a piece from everything inside the kit. Just sharing the layouts I made...



I was also tasked to do the lecture hall over at Badgirls for this month... not an easy task when you have a gallery full of the most beautiful pages ever seen. So I just thought of talking about the process I take when I create layouts for kits. It's really different when you create pages using stuff that you have versus creating from a kit where you want to maximize the use of the kit.
