Long Weekend

So... we celebrated Gio'g birthday last Thursday. We had lunch at Sofitel - Sprial Restaurant. It was a sumptouous buffet and we got really really full. We chatted there for a long while, the ambience and the view was just perfect. Unfortunatley, I couldn't find the SD card that I used then so I could't post any picture.

The celebration didn't end there though. We were scheduled to go to an overnight stay at Club Balai Isabel in Talisay Batangas (beside the Taal Lake) but the Volcano was acting up and there were warnings for those who live near the lake so we decided not to go. It was a trip that Gio's sister arranged along with her whole family and my mother-in-law.  Though it was late though when we cancelled his sister was still able to book another vacation at Subic Forest View Village. So that's where we spent saturday through Sunday.

We drove home Sunday around 12 noon and I drove the new car (Hyundai Tucson). It was my first time and it was a 2.5-hr drive. It was fine but I don't find it as easy to handle as my car (Honda Civic). Anyhow, we were able to totally relax there in Subic. Had lots of sleep and good food. LOL :)

And on the same day (Sunday) was Gio's treat for the whole family (his and mine). All 25 of us had dinner at Kanin Club (UP tech hub), it was our family's way of spending time togther. Eating good food, hehehe... And then we all had coffee and crepe at Cafe Breton. By the time we got home, we were tired but really happy.

So no scrapping projects done for me on that long weekend. So on Monday I finished one and a half page. I used the remaining crate pp I have of the brook colleciton. I really loved the colors and it's style. I also made three doily projects like that of Christine Middlecamps' current project. If you want ot check it out here's her blog: http://retrospection.typepad.com/my_weblog.  Her tutorials on this project is really amazing! Makes you wonder how she thinks of those stuff. :)  I also used sketch 67 over at The Scrappiest.

Close up of the title and the die cuts from my Silhouette machine. These die cuts were all in white (I cut my designs in advance all in white) and I just cover them with what color I need using different mists. The background was inked with distress inks, the frame with Tsukineko walnut ink and the crown-like with Glimmer mist.

Cut outs from the paper and some cardstock and chipboard stickers from the same collection.

These are the three-doily like projects I made. It took me hours to complete these three but I'm happy with the results. These are layers of chipboards, die cuts, sitckers, etc.

Materials Used:
PP: Create Brook Collection, BG Basics
Embellisments: CS and chipbpard stickers, Silhouette die cuts, blings, trims
Inks: Glimmer Mist, Distress Inks, Tsukineko Walnut Ink
Tools: Silhouette SD, Fiskars border punch

Hope y'all had a good weekend like I did. :)
