my thanks also go to scrappin' mom Joanne for encouraging me to do some paper cutting. demo-han ka ba naman like it was just too easy! well, it actually wasn't at first but it definitely made me want to try it and when you're there pala, you just have to finish it... parang di ako makakatulog kung di ko tatapusin. kaya ayan ang resulta.
i am including a "deconstruction" as my friend Lee always likes to know how things are done. personally, i also like looking at mags and books for this reason and i do appreciate it when detailed descriptions are included. i hope you like it, too. here goes...
