Sharing A Few Of My Thoughts

I've been taking it easy for the last few days...Having submitted my entry for class III at badgirls, no reason for me to stress now.

I went back to reading!!! Just a backgrounder, i've been reading since i was 8 i think. My mother used to borrow children's books from the library and she also bought a few Sweet Valley Twins books. That started my addiction with reading. I devoured every book in my mother's stash and more. From Mill's & Boon to John Grisham, from Sherlock Holmes to Johanna Lindsey. I remember reading with my sister using flashlights under our blanket because our nanay didn't want us reading until the wee hours of the morning.

The past years, i've only read a few, including Angels and Demon,"trashy" *wink*wink* ones (not that trash hey!) and the majority were children's books. The drawback for me when i read is that i don't let the book down until i finish it. We are talking reading until 5am-6am here that when the kids get up, i would only get 2-3 hours of bedtime.

I have a few must reads on my list now. And #1 on my list is
P.S. I Love You. It's one of my most fave movie ever. It's my wallpaper, my screensaver and I couldn't stop BAWLING LIKE A BABY while watching the movie over and over again. Let me share with you a clip. Watching this with a pumpkin spice latte in my hand is pure bliss for me right now.

Hope you enjoyed it!

BG Top Designer Contest Class III

Fortunately, I made it to class III! Our teacher for this week taught us about:

1. less is more
2. unity
3. balance
4. white space

I was actually excited to start on this right away. I used asymmetrical balance here. To unify the look of the page, i used the color scheme, the rule of 3, repetition, etc.

Top Designer Contest At Badgirls Class II

I passed class I at the top designer contest at BG. there are 190 participants left. For Class II, we need to use at least 2 pp while applying the principle: Gallon, quart, pint for the distribution of all the color in our page. We also need to get our colors from the photo itself.

Yesterday, i took the kids outside so they can enjoy the few remaining fair weather here. Bea was scheduled to wear braces for her weak ankles, which according to her therapist, is the reason she's not really walking yet. So, while outside, she was sitting on the grass watching her sister playing when she suddenly got up and walked about 20 feet towards her sister. I am now considering not to use braces for her if she keeps on walking, and maybe, running.

Top Designer Contest at Bad Girls

So, i have been out of the loop lately. I don't know what's wrong with me. I would make a layout or two then disappear.. It became a cycle.. Whew! So, to get my mojo flowing again, i joined a contest that tortured me for weeks last year. For those who are not familiar with it, the contest that runs for 6 weeks with an elimination at the end of each week. The layouts (which) we call our assignments are based on Design Principles. For this week, we are asked to make a page with at least 2 types of layering...

I took this photo without any intention of scrapping it. I just needed something for her emergency form for her school. Maybe because of all that "photo shoots" she wouldn't look straight at was either looking sideways, looking outside or with her head tilted. FINALLY, she looked REALLY STRAIGHT at me.
