FesTeE December

December is here!!

Its time for holidays, X'mas and
even preparing the kids for a new school year!!

We are feeling the whole FesTeE spirit at Scrappin Kids this month.
Check out our fun activities this FesTeE December!

Do join us!!


We hope that everyone had fun diggin for the 1st smile photo
of their little one and scraped about it for our previous challenge!!
Here's our FesTeE December challenge.

X'mas is all about exchanging gifts and wishes.
Scrappin Kids Residence Designers decided to swap
pictures of their little ones and to come up with a layout.

The challenge this month is to do a layout
of your little one with their name as a title.

Easy isn't it??
It's FesTeE December after all.....

Lets scrap and enjoy the process!!

Scrappin Kids
is proud to announce our
Esteemed and Extremely Talented December Guest Designer
Iris Babao Uy Iris is from The Philippines and she is a mother of a beautiful lil girl, Nicole.
She is currently designing for October Afternoon, Bad Girls Kit, Scraplovers and ScrapBukan.
Her Gorgeous work recently landed on the covers of the Jan 08 issue of Memory Makers.

"I'm 33 years old, married to a wonderful man named Bryan,
blessed with a daughter turning 3 this December 11,
and blessed with the opportunity to document memories
both for my family and for myself"

Here's her take on this challenge.

by Iris
"The picture was taken by a photographer friend of mine
who needed a model for a photo shoot.
I thought it was the perfect opportunity to have nice studio shots of Nicole so we went ahead with it.
However, come photo shoot day, she would not go anywhere
near the studio lights without crying.
I was pretty frustrated because I did not have any good studio photos
of her for the layouts that was due.
Then she cried and hugged me, and I remembered...
I started scrapping because of her and it should remain that way.
I knew I had to be a mother to her, not a scrapper in desperate need of photos :)"

and here are the lovely layouts by our Residence Designers

by Jasmin

Journalling :
"Dearest Aaqil,
* Know that you are truly blessed
* Know that your presence in your parents' lives is a blessing
* Know that YOU are the one they have been waiting for"

"Scrapping somebody else's photo can be pretty daunting and nerve-wrecking.
This is my 2nd time doing a photo swap and I won't deny that
I got a bit stuck trying to figure out how to do a suitable layout.
But once I was in it, it was just a matter of going with the flow.
Scrapping a different subject than my usual ones
gave me an opportunity to scrap from a different perspective.
When I scrapped this layout, I pretended that I was Liza
(esp. when I was doing the journaling)
But I did put in my own touch to the layout."

When I Grow Up
by Leena

"When I 1st received this photo of Adam from Wati,
I knew right away what I'll do with it!!
Adam is totally an adorable boy and
it's so easy to create this LO of him, looking all dreamie and I knew the title
"When I Grow Up" would suits this page best!
I had fun doing up this page as I've always did for my boy
and since Ethan & Adam is only a year difference in age,
it was pretty much easy for me.
I would love this kind of swapping challenge anytime & I would do it again!"

by Liza

Journalling :
"No others will give up everything for you
other than your Parents"

"I had so much fun doing Ethan's layout
as I love his angel face.
As I was doing this, I kept thinking how precious
Ethan must be to his Parents.
He will definately make his Parents proud when he grows up!"

by Wati

Journalling :
"Nadya, you started to suck your fingers
at a very early age.
Up till now, you still have that habit with you.
Auntie Wati hope to meet you one day
and you could play with Adam!
mmmmm.....maybe you both could hook up!!!"

"When I received Nadya's photo from Jasmin,
I was a little worried.
I normally scrap boy's layout, so it was challenging for me.
With such a cute photo of Nadya, I hope I did justice to it."
