When the scrapping mojo is running low, sometimes CT requirements are all that keep me from stopping scrapping altogether. Fortunately I'm back on track with some personal layouts. :)
The first one is a RAK (random act of kindness) I did for my former officemate Mai Mai, who's now working in Japan. This is her roommate, Mheanne:

This next layout are of some pictures I had a hard time scrapping. I started making a layout three times but stopped because I was not happy with what was coming along. Finally, a Pickleberry Pop challenge template by Armina prompted me to finish this layout. Whew, at last!

We celebrated Weng's birthday last August with a food and good company. Of course, we had to get her to pose blowing the cake! This is actually the second time she blew the candles - the first time, my camera ran out of power! Good thing I had a spare pair of batteries. Take two!

I was tagged by slickchick, who I met on the Girltalk forum. I don't know how this started either but it is definitely one creative way to make your blogsite known, and at the same time acknowledge other people's blogs and their creativity.
Here are the Rules:
- Try to make a post just like this one and mention this process.
- From the list of blog sites below remove the number 1 and move the rest in the list 1 step higher (i. e number 2 becomes number 1, and so on). Add your blog name in the 5th position. Don't forget to copy the links. (Here's my list-my site added in the end)
- List at most five of your friends blogsite here with link and inform them of this post and ask them to do the same. Here's my list:

When Janice asked me to help scrap a baby book she would be giving as a baptism present to her friend Cindy, I was intimidated. I'm a digiscrapper, and the last time we tried paper scrapping, I couldn't even apply a sticker straight! But it's fun so I decided to take the challenge. We spent the whole evening scrapping after fortifying ourselves with comfort food (i.e. cheeseburgers and Twister fries).
The book had a Mickey Mouse theme. Here is the cover made by Janice:
And here are the layouts I contributed to the scrapbook:
Yes, I did drop several stickers in the wrong places, cut crookedly and get glue on my fingers and the table (I'd expect that with liquid Elmer's, but this was one of those acid-free stick glues and I still managed to get messed up). Unlike in digiscrapping, once you glue it or cut it, that's it. There's no Ctrl+Alt-Z if you make a mistake. I hope it's not bad for a beginning paper scrapper. Still, I had fun and Cindy loved the scrapbook, and that's what matters. :)
