A birthday gift

I have one big news! I won in a raffle! You see, I have my scrapbook magazines subscription from Bookoto and to celebrate their one year, they decided to pick one lucky customer and give a one year subscription of Digital Scrapbooking magazine. I am actually excited when I learned about it and even more excited when I learned that the draw date will be on my birthday.

So, I forgot na about it then just this morning, biglang naalala ko so I decided to check out their site, no news yet there (I checked just now, my name is there na rin on their site). Then I saw that they have a blog so I checked out the blog. And my surprise when I found out that I won!! as in, there's a picture of Ms. Julie's son holding a paper with my name on it. There was even a video of the draw! I am so happy! I actually shrieked when I saw my name. Grabe!! sarap ng feeling.

Here are the pics of the draw:

How I wish I can also copy the video but I can't. It can be watched here actually.

Thanks! thanks a lot talaga! I am so happy. I am contemplating kasi of going back to digital scrapbooking because of the scrapbooking difficulties I am having as posted here so napakagaling po talaga ng timing nito. A heartfelt thanks to the two lovely owners of Bookoto - Ms. Juliet and Sheryl. Thanks! And Sheryl, sorry I missed your calls this morning. Thanks! thanks!

I've got a friend from Germany!

Wow! as in major wow! this discovery woke me up from my dull, sad browsing of my scrapbooking blog. I am just so sad that I have been so inactive in scrapbooking, that no matter how browsing I do on my co-scrappers blogs, I still can't find the inspiration that I want, I still can't find that push to create a layout. Even if there is already the discussion on going back to doing simple pages, something that is not "contest" worthy for so long as it's from the heart - it still did not inspire me. BUT, I am so surprised that somebody left a comment on my last post here. Upon checking, surprise of all surprises, she is a friend from Germany!! Hi Kwebbel! thanks for visiting my blog! You inspired me to take a photo of all layouts I created but not posted here yet. And thanks for making me your scrapbooker friend from the Philippines. Check out here her blog. I feel so honored to be the one representing Philippines (actually, nakakahiya kasi di naman kagandahan ang aking LOs). Although I can't understand a single word from her blog I am so glad of meeting her, of encountering her. I think it was the inspiration (or rather the pressure) that I need to create a page. Thanks Kwebbel! Nice having you here.
