Acot's CT Spotlight

I received an email from Cathy (thanks girl!) congratulating me about the ACOT's monthly spotlight...and i replied very intriqued, curious and excited all at the same time. While waiting for her reply, i browsed ACOT's website and i found out i have a pm from Melissa asking me to keep an eye for it because one of my layouts was chosen. I did this for their focal photo challenge for this month. You can view all the layouts that are chosen for the month of January here.
My daughter Francine when she asked me to put the silk rose behind her ear and asked me to taker a photo of her..I didn't even ask her how to pose, she just tilted her head to one side and smiled...She's just being herself, her love for photo shoots!

More Projects

The following are my first altered cd's and mini-book...I made the mini-book for my SIL's birthday. Using alcohol ink is sooooo easy...literally, just squirt and dab. then i just cut strip of pp and plain cardstock. inked the edges of the pp then adhered the end together.

(materials used: cd tin, alcohol ink,basicgrey pp, cs, ribbon, belt buckle)

I've never made a mini-album before although i really like them. I was thinking what to give my SIL and realized she would appreciate this more. The album came with the cd so i decided to use alcohol ink again.

after finishing my "nine months" layout, i felt my scrapping mojo and was able to finish another layout last night...

THREE Reasons To Be Happy

1. Winner - Scrapperie's Eight-Weeks Challenge
2. Winner - Scrappinkids FesTeE December Challenge
3. Francine's photo was chose by Wati at scrappinkids

It was funny how i discovered how i won. I thought that the winner for scrapperie was to be announced January 1, 2008. Last night, i visited the site and i saw a new topic titled: And the winner is.. not really paying attention, i clicked the thread and i screamed when i saw my name in big bold was an 8 weeks challenge and every week, the participants will send in their top 3 votes (we cannot vote for ourselves) and the design team members will also give us scores depending on the week's challenge..I wasn't really expecting to win thinking i have no luck when it comes to something like this..And a huge congratulations to Cookie and Christine who are runners-up!

Then i received an instant message from Cookie congratulating me..And i was like, oh yeah,i am so excited. And i congratulated her too..She then said, oh your daughter's photo was "also" chosen! and i was like, wait, are talking about scrappinkids? I asked her if the winner was already announced! Then she said, "Yes, and YOU are the winner! What a funny way to find out! And she didn't even know that the winners at scrapperie were also announced already. The forum thread at scrapperie crashed last night and i was thankful i found out who won before it!

I thank you ladies who never fail to motivate me. You know who you are. This is my first win and it is so rewarding. What a great way to welcome the New Year! or maybe what a great way to end 2007..
