Well, it is a bit overwhelming when starting a new scrapbook project. You have so many concepts running through your head that sometimes leaves you confused. Well then not to fear, the online world has a lot of sites that offer resources or even tips on creating your scrapbook pages. My favorite among them is the Creating Keepsakes and Scrapbooks etc. site. Creating keepsakes which gives you access to various sketches that you can turn into amazing scrapbook pages. The scrapbooks ect. on the other hand gives a lot of tips and techniques from embellishing to stamping. They also allow you to download sketches and patterns that can enhance your scrapbooking skills.
Back in July 2011, my college friends, Rose and Feluche, decided to unwind and connect with nature. Since during that time my cousin from Mindanao was in town visiting us, we decided to take him to a nature adventure. Together with our official photographer (my ever supportive boyfriend!) we went to Doce Pares (Cebu Zipline) in Busay, Cebu City. It was a fun afternoon filled with some exciting activities (now I know how it feels like to be a tight-rope walker!) It was one of the best outings my friends and I had ever have. Since this memory is so precious, I decided to make several scrapbook pages with the pictures we took…
Here are some of them
Me… the tight rope walker!…;)

My college buddies Rose and Feluche, Ann was not able to join us…:(
I’m still completing the other pages as of now…I will be posting it some time soon!
Back in college, I had this habit of writing down some of the forwarded text messages that I receive before deleting them on my phone. Some are meaningful, some funny and some are downright cheesy. Anyways, here are some of those messages or quotes that can be used in the journaling of scrapbook pages.
> Hugs are fat-free, sugar-free, require no batteries, reduce blood pressure and help relieve pain and depression. Redeem this to me anytime in case you’ll need one.
>My life is not perfect but I’m happy…coz I have people like you…equally imperfect like me…but just the right blend for a great friendship
>You’re walking on a long weak bridge. It’s really scary and you’re afraid. You saw me and ask my help. But I said I’m sorry, I can’t! Because I am busy…I’m busy holding the bridge for you to be safe.
>The loveliest day comes when you wake up one morning and discover the romantic truth that God always colors your world. May you find hundreds of reason to smile today. Start your day with a smile.
>I have reached this age and never been wealthy of material things…But if I would cease to exist now, I will forever be thankful that I was given the chance to be wealthy of your friendship.
>Friendship is a special kind of love, more than endless, more than true…No matter how far the distance, expect your friend to miss and care for you, like the way I do.
>The greatest regret we can have in life is not for the wrong things we did…But for the things we could have done but we never did.
>The essence of friendship is not the smile and gesture we give but a feeling when you discover that someone believed in you and willing to trust and care for you.
>Being a friend is a hard job. you work 24 hours a day without pay, sometimes unappreciated. But I still want to be your friend ‘coz that’s the only job that makes me feel the richest person in the world.
>Live with no excuses and love with no regrets. When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile..
