Au!

Alam mo ba napatingin talaga ako sa LO mong ito! Ang galing! May lahi talaga kayo ng mga artistic no!

Gusto ko yung sketch mo? Ano bang size ng mga photos mo dyan? Scraplift ko naman, ok lang?

wow, AU!!!!! i love this page! like Pia said, your sketch looks great!

I love how you created your own paper by mixing several acrylic paints together - it looks really cool! how'd you do that?! hmmmm.... while we're on the subject of 'how'd you do that?', pwede ka ba mag-tutorial pano gumawa ng banner for the blog, ahehehehe.... tagal ko na iniisip to hindi ko pa rin ma-execute!

Great job!

Ay! kakakilig naman comments nyo! thanks very much! This is one of the few times nga na i didn't rely on a pagemaps sketch. Minsan kasi ginaganahan. kaya so happy naman ako that you guys liked it.

Pia...you scraplift me?! Ay, my honor yun! Kasi palagi akong kumukuha ng inspiration sa beautiful LOs mo!

Christine, hahaha...di talaga ako actually magaling gumawa ng banner in terms of HTML...ang secret, nangopya lang ako ng html code ng ibang may blog na may banner...hehehe...pero as far as doing it in Photoshop, dun puede kita i-assist :-D

Wow Jenn! Sarap naman ng adjective mo! Thanks!

Leirs, salamat...heheheh pero chamba-chamba lang din ako...minsan maganda output, minsan so-so lang. I get inspiration din from our local scrappin' divas and my scrap goddesses!

Thanks ladies!
