A Wall Canvas and a Prima Give-away! (Updated with winner)

It's time again for the Prima Build A Page, and this month's sketch by Annam Stubbington will really allow your creativity to flow. I followed the sketch loosely and created a canvas frame for our room.

Ok, time for another give-away! Just post a comment here and I will randomly pick a winner to receive some beautiful Prima flowers and embellishments. I will however have to limit the participation to Metro Manila residents only. Shipping overseas costs so much specially for bulky packages and I don't have extra funds for that. Hope you understand. Ok, I have updated this post with a winner, and the PRIMA flowers rack goes to... RACHELLE TOLENTINO! Congratulations!

Fund Raising Auction

Hello everyone! You must be all familiar with the wonderful and talented ANAM STUBBINGTON. She is a very talented artist and she moved to Canada a few years ago. Their family encountered some problems with their work permit in Canada and needs help to raise funds so that they can stay in Canada. They have organized a fund raiser and there are a lot of wonderful items up for bid! Please visit her blog to join in the auction and to read about her story. If you can also tell your friends about this, you will be helping her in your own way too. Thanks so much!

OA Road Map RAK Goes to....

SCRAPGURL! Congratulations! My four year old daughter did the random picking again. I'll bring your package to the Scrapfest this Saturday. Please email me how I can get in touch with you.

And here is a layout I made for October Afternoon using Cherry Hill Die-cuts...

I have always been a softie when it comes to my children. My husband and I love to go to Starbucks for coffee and cake. And our daughter Nicole loves to come with us. She always runs to the counter to get a lemon or cherry lollipop. She never finishes it and only manages a few licks before putting it down, but she just likes the idea of picking a treat for herself. I know I have to start saying no to most of her whims and fancies, but I still keep saying “yes” all the time.

And here is a layout for Webster's Pages using the Sweet As Cherry Pie Line... for the August lift challenge of guest designer Toni Kelly. Her work is fabulous!

Road Map

I love October Afternoon's Road Map collection. This was from the previous CHA so this is an old line to most of you. But I just had the chance to use these papers now and I am just loving all the colors and patterns. I made this layout for Creative Therapy's Catalyst # 75 "What’s the hardest decision you ever made?"

I have always been an independent person who valued her identity. This is one of my struggles as a married woman. I have always been comfortable in the place where I grew and felt that it was the best place for my children too. My husband has a business which has been doing fairly well but it requires him to travel for several hours a day to get from our home to his place of business. We had tried to delay moving our family nearer to his business but it was just not working. One of the hardest decisions in my married life was whether to stay at our home town which was safe and comfortable but would take away some precious time from my children and their Dad – or to move to the busy, chaotic, city but allow them to be with their Dad longer during the day. We decided to make the move. We still miss being in our place of comfort, but having more family time makes it worth it.

Please join us at Creative Therapy and get a chance at winning a RAK.

I'm also giving away a RAK. Leave a comment here and I'll enter your name to get a chance to receive a pack of Road Map papers and Tags.
There is a lot of new things going on at Webster's Pages! And to celebrate this with all the fans of Webster's, there will be a huge give-away over at the blog. Check this....
Leave a comment on the blog & Brandin will randomly select {TWO} lucky winners to win the entire paper line of new {Postcards from Paris} the entire paper line of new {Nature's Storybook} the coordinating {Days of the Week Journaling Cards} the coordinating {Vellum} {Alpha Stickers} and {Shape Stickers}.

Hello everyone! I have been busy creating projects and pages but I can't post those yet. I'll be teaching an on-line class very soon and I'm also scheduled to go to Brunei to teach for a couple of days there. I'll be posting details soon. I'm also arranging for a few blog give-aways. Watch out for that:) In the meantime, here is a page I made for Prima's booth at the Summer CHA, featuring my little fairy Cheska. I loved the felt gate so much and I only had one piece of that. So I used it as a mask instead for some misting so I can use it over and over again.

Tim Holtz - Guest Designer at Creative Therapy!

I recently joined the design team of Creative Therapy and the 1st catalyst I worked on was "Create and art piece about a recent dream come true for you". Here is my take on the catalyst.

I have recently given up my events management business to be able to take care of my two children. Little did I know that along with the time that I can now spend on my children, I will also be blessed with the opportunity to create pages and projects, and at the same time earn some extra cash along with the pure enjoyment of creating. It has always been my “DREAM JOB” and now I am given the privelege to live that dream.

Ok now that I have posted this, I realized that I just had another dream come true! And that is to have a work of mine appear in the same site as that of Tim Holtz' work! Tim Holtz is an artist I admire so much. If there was only one scrapbook celebrity I could scrap with for one whole day - or even one hour for that matter - I would choose Tim Holtz. Please please take the time to visit the Creative Therapy site and look at the work of Tim Holtz and read about his dream come true. The work of the other design team members are so amazing as well. Please check it out.
