September to Remember

Two years ago:

a. We opened our rice store - Camaso Rice Dealer. We have to totally entrust God where He will lead this new venture.
b. I was scheduled for surgery at St. Luke's Medical Center, Quezon City. There is a growth in my vocal chords which causes my hoarse voice. After the surgery, I had to be speechless for 10 days to ensure proper healing from the surgery. I had to trust God that He is in full control of the surgery. I have entrusted to Him te hands of the surgeon and the other attendants for that surgery. I have entrusted Him my life the time I had to be in a deep sleep for the surgery.
c. Typhoon Ondoy flooded major areas of Metro Manila. Our place was spared and God just reminds us that He is in control, He gives and He takes away. God sometimes have to shake our faiths for us to look at Him and trust in Him.

These are the times where we just hold on to our faith in God, for Him to lead us where He wants to and show us His presence in our lives.

Indeed, it is a September to remember that God is working in our lives.

Scrappy Saturday: Scrap Lauriat

I joined Scrap Lauriat which was organized by Studio Azul and Visual Creations. It was a whole day scrapping activity and glad that someone takes care of our rice store, Camaso Rice Dealer, that I can schedule weekend activities, either with the family or simply a me time activity. Scrap Lauriat is so fun, each participant were given a kit to start with and different embellishments, from flowers, alphas, rub on, stickers, chipboards, etc, were provided in our table. Once a participant completes two layouts, she is entitled to get 5 sheets of paper from the paper station and when a table completes 10 layouts, 8 in our case since there are only 4 of us in the table, we get to pick 5 embellishments from the cart. My goal is to complete at least 10 layouts which will bring my total number of layouts to 50 for the year but I was able to complete 12 layouts during the Lauriat, with work in progress mini album and a take home of paper packs and embellishments.

Renewal of Vows

Last February, part of worship service is the renewal of vows among couples. Couples renewed their lifelong commitment to their respective partners which was sealed by a prayer from our Pastor.  Here are some photos snapped during the service.

I have a lot more pictures to share so watch out for it.

Warm Up

Last two nights and it will be the most awaited event for scrappers here in the Philippines - the Studio Azul and Visual Creations Scrapbook Laureat. It's gonna be this Saturday at Cameron Hall, North Forbes Park. This event has been announced for months already so that means I have time to prepare. For several weeks now, I have been going through my photos and sketch blogs to prepare.

This Monday, I tried to do a layout. I pulled out my papers and photos. The paper I had is a little bit challenging because of the bold design, which does not perfectly match my photo. Then I remembered this sketch

from My Creative Sketches . This is the debut sketch for the blog and is what I came up with, in 30 minutes or less. First time to finish a layout in a short span of time. Thanks to sketches.

Just when I thought the layout is done, I had to come back and sprinkle the flowers and the title with Bedazzles and Ranger Glossy Accent. Cool way to add dimension to your project.
