Pictures of Recognition and Graduation Exercises have been flooding my Facebook feeds from friends who have schooling kids. I’m sure they’re very much proud of the achievements of their kids. My son will start preschooling this June so I’m pretty much excited how he’ll do. Of course, I’d be the happiest too if he’ll bring home trophies, medals, certificates and ribbons but at this point (and for the rest of his schooling years), I’ll never ever pressure him to be on top. I’ll just be here by his side to support and guide him to study and do the best he could. I’d like him to excel not for the sole objective that he wants us to be proud of him but rather, I want him to do it for himself.

I still haven’t digiscrapped these days but seeing this kit from Vera Lim Designs makes me want to purchase it right away and reawaken my scrapping skills. I don’t know if it’s hormones or if it has got to do with my pregnancy (yes I am! so I care less about those hemo rage black reviews for the mean time) that I felt an instant connection with the lovely theme of the kit.
I think this is a perfect kit to use for digiscrapping the PT kit photos I took. The papers and elements make a great layout for pregnancy and baby themes, right? Does the pink shade indicate that it’s gonna be a “SHE” this time? I hope so!

Geez…if a genie will appear right at this very moment, the three things I’d wish for are:
1. extra time
2. extra hands
3. extra mojos
All these for me to be able to put all the recent photos (Boracay, birthday celebs, etc) we’ve had to scrap pages. I’ve already done the first step which is to transfer the photos from the DSLR to my laptop. Then, that’s it. No further development yet. I’ve been meaning to make photobooks directly at Artscow but alas, I’m swamped with online works right now and considering my situation (I’m in my first trimester of pregnancy, by the way, again another scrappable milestone), I’m too weak and sickly to spend my extra time digiscrapping.
So..anyone who has a magic lamp so I can start rubbing it?

Sometimes, accident arises due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence. Injuries may arise and because of this a lawyer’s assistance may be sought to demand and represent for legal claims.

For the Barbie collectors out there, this latest Mattel creation will surely be a big hit to them.
Recently, Mattel introduced the “I Can Be…” series, which feature a variety of professions. Can you guess which profession the latest creation portrays? She’s carrying blueprints so that gives a hint that she’s an architect! The other I Can Be Barbies include a Ballerina, Pet Vet, Dentist, Bride, a Babysitter, a Rock Star and a Race Car Driver. I’m sure they will still release a lot more career-themed dolls in the future but I doubt if they will come up with a Barbie in a construction job uniform. Because that would be simply absurd as I have never seen a gal holding such a manly and heavy job.
