I’m 13,870 days old today.


go figure.

oh hello there, peeps! I’m blogging (uy, blog-bloggingan). and what better day to resurrect my haplessly evaporating blogging skills than today, mi cumpleaño.

funny how as you get older you expect less and less from your birthday. gone is the super planning mode like what to wear (must be new, of course), where to eat, who to invite, who from my invitees is going to gift me with something, will anybody surprise me (and if they do, will I be really surprised?), will they notice I plucked my eyebrows, shaved my legs, put on lipgloss, etcetera? but most important of all… will anyone actually remember? I kept my expectations low through the years. heck, even my mum asked me why I was dressed casually and hanging around the family compound today. “but mum, it’s my birthday!”, I exclaimed. take note, nanay ko na ‘yon, ha. 

thankfully, there’s facebookwhere all your networked friends doesn’t have a single excuse not to greet you. ok, maybe they weren’t able to log-in that day or whatever. so thank you, right sidebar notice. haha. odabah? hanep sa segue. 

so anyway, just like last year and the year before that, I am giving away a RAK to one lucky, philippine-based reader of mine who is willing to play along in order for me to create my birthday layout. the tradition lives on!

please help me by suggesting:

1.  three (3) great colors to go with my favorite color PINK; and

2.  two (2) easy techniques I can apply (please, BE GENTLE with the techniques – I’m tools deficient)

should you accept the challenge, please PM me your suggeations here then go back to this post telling me you did just that. actually, gusto ko lang batiin niyo ako ulit dito sa comment section. needy ba? hehehe. and since today is my actual birthday, deadline will be on wednesday, august 11, at 11:59pm. layout reveal and the announcement of the winner will be on friday, august 14. that’s it! so easy.

here’s the exclusive sing kit:

this kit is huge! with over 25pcs of patterned papers and some cardstocks. I also threw in some minimally cut pps, but you know us scrappers, we find ways to still use those pretty leftovers, right? see if you can identify these manufacturers: CP, MM, SR, TI, RP, BG, FP, SEI, TC, JB, CB 🙂 then there’s k&co, q&co, glitz, marks paper, harmonie and prima! tucked in some alphas too! care for some stamps? meron din! and if you are in the mood for some embellies, I have ribbons, flowers, domino blocks, chinese character chips, cooking twine, lots of journ spots, sheer chorvah, prima crystals, ribbon brads, sticker quotes, doileys, pre-cut whatnots and yeah, a piece of vintage dictionary sheet. threw in some pages of the MR sheer album as well. and speaking of ribbons and flowers… piglas (hindi pigsa), my 18year old italian glass cookie canister carried those:

and that’s not all! also for the winner, this buzz & bloom loot could be a kit in itself:

ok na ba? so we’re set! really, really appreciate it if you can join in the fun! 😀
