Oysters

Thankful that:

I am nearly finished obtaining the certificates of deposit I need
_______________________________

We chose this outdoor restaurant in Boracay because it is an all-you-can-eat restaurant. While there are other buffet restaurants in Boracay the restaurant's selling point for me is that oysters is included in the buffet. I think I had three servings of oysters. Can you tell that it's one of my favourite seafood?

For this layout I used Kathy Winters Designs' My Funky Valentine Bundle. Included therein are the full kit, the coordinating bead alpha and the word art pack. This is available in her store at Ginger Scraps.

My Funky Valentine is a funky little Valentine kit filled with enough love and hearts to scrap those you love. This kit contains 20 papers and a mix of 47 elements ranging from doodled to beaded to glittered to add a little glitz and glam: balloons, bead spill, bow, 3 brads, cupid, 3 doodled hearts, envelope, 3 fabric flowers, frame, heart plant, heart string, 2 heart trees, (2) paper hearts, 3 paper flowers, 3 paper flourishes, ribbon, 2 sequin hearts, stamp, 2 strings, swirly doodle, 2 tags, valentine, 3 wordart pieces, 4 beaded word art pieces, and 2 wire hangers.

My Funky Valentine Wordart is a set of ten (10) embellished word art pieces designed to coordinate with the full kit My Funky Valentine.

Mountain climbers

Thankful that:

my layout, Chef Hansel (please see April 14, 2011 post), was chosen LOTD at Scrapable
_______________________________

Hansel and I climbed up the mountain to take a look at our land. I was perspiring on our ascent and descent. It didn't help matters that we didn't bring any water with us. So Hansel had to go down and ask for a drink of water. I didn't go with him any more. I didn't think I have the strength to go down and up again.

Used for this layout is Snips and Snails Designs' Forest Love kit. It's available in her two stores: Divine Digital and Digital Scrapbooking Studio. For a description of the kit and its preview, please see post below.

Phaidon Beach Resort

Thankful that:

I got my travel authority today
_______________________________

Ann suggested that we check out the Phaidon Beach Resort before going to Boracay and that we did after taking a dip at the Malumpati Cold Springs. If one can't go to Boracay, this beach resort is a great alternative, as it has white sand too and it is quiet to boot. At least, that's what it felt like when Hansel and I went there.

The kit I used is Snips and Snails Designs' Forest Love. It's available in her two stores: Divine Digital and Digital Scrapbooking Studio. This kit is full of adorable little woodland creatures, flowers, and hearts. It's very versatile for scrapping little girls, little boys, or both. The kit includes: 11 papers, 1 acorn, 1 bow, 2 bunnies, 1 butterfly, 2 clouds, 9 flowers, 2 single picture frames, 1 multi-picture frame, 4 hearts, 2 leaves, 2 porcupines, 3 swirls, 1 tag, 2 trees, 1 twine, 2 vines, and 1 word art.

Fish spa

Thankful that:

Hazel de Vera let me use her internet Broadband
_______________________________

Fish nibbling the dead cells of my feet is a new experience for me and one I liked but not too much that I'd give it another go. I'm ticklish, for one thing, and a tad leery that the fish would nibble more than the dead cells.
