Happy Nikki Sivils Day!

Hi everyone! This is Ria Mojica again. "Nikki Sivils Day" is what my scrapping friends and I dubbed yesterday's crop as we all worked on creating LOs using Nikki Sivils products. It was so inspiring and such an eye-opening experience to see the various ways we all used the same products.

As I worked on the new lines, my friends got to work on the yummy products from last season. I couldn't help thinking whether I was being too generous by letting them have a go at my precious papers...part of me wanted to grab it all back from them as they practically fought over the the end I did get back one of the Christmas papers for a LO that I want to do...and made sure that they leave behind any unused scraps of paper for me to use.

Here are my 3 LOs using the new lines:

Yum! using Bella Blue and Oscar Too

The Bee's Knees using Willow Bee

See Saw Fun using Flaming Buttefly

And these are my gorgeous scrapping friends, we call ourselves the Adobo Girls (adobo is a native Filipino dish, and during one of our past crops, we all brought different kinds of adobo for our meal). From left to right, Arlene, myself, Dinah, Iris, Ems, Bjay, Kitkat, Liza, Pia and April.

Now here's what they created. April always get the top prize for being the fastest scrapper -- she finished 4 LOs using Nikki Sivils products (I wasn't able to take a pic of the last one), but actually finished 7 LOs yesterday! Everyone wants to sit beside Iris hoping that some of her creative juices rub-off on us. She finished a 2nd LO but had to leave early to bring her baby to the doctor so I wasn't able to take a pic of that, as well.










What a great weekend this turned out to be --- friends + food + scrapping = great great fun! Hope your week-end was as great as mine!
