princess masako

i can't help but comment on this book. this book is quite controversial so when i saw this on nbs' bookstand last bookfair, i got hold of it immediately. you see, princess masako was my secret idol way back when she became princess, an intelligent girl whose passion for the academics and career made her a very potential candidate... or bride so to speak.

and so when i saw this book-- about the tragedy ( oh well, i have not been following her up like a stalker), all i could say was i really pity her. she has somewhat wasted her what you call "up the ladder" life. no one to blame, we really do not know. it was her choice ( or was it?)...

read up this title. a surely beautiful read. it will make you float inside her life. inside her dreams and somehow, inside her sad life.

i took this pic in Batangas last Sunday during a brief visit to my in-laws.

sneak peak for artzdescrap ( OCTOBER )

the reveal tomorrow...

this is my first layout after weeks of drought and rut... so busy with school works of my kids sometimes i have no more time to think of what to scrap!!! lol.

for this layout, you can also find it at the scrappinkids forum ( mini me challenge ). i used a two toned color scheme for the stamp to enhance contrast for each paper used, that is, dark and light and so i used white and black inks.

atc can

last PS eyeball meeting ( august ), the scrappers were made to create their own ATC can. This is my take on the tin can using the following materials:

tin can
american craft ribbon
prima flower
american craft thickers
rangers crackle paint
making memories acrylic paint
inque botique stamp
melissa frances paper

this tin can can accomodate less than 5 atcs only unless you take off the cover and alter it again.
