April is indeed a very special month for me and my husband. We will be celebrating our 7th Wedding Anniversary this coming 19th. Amen to that!
So am I now ready to say that I’m passing on the seven-year itch? Have you hear about that?
The seven-year itch is a psychological term that suggests that happiness in a relationship declines after around year seven of a marriage. The phrase originated as a name for irritating and contagious skin complaints of a long duration. The phrase has since expanded to indicate cycles of dissatisfaction not only in interpersonal relationships but in any situation such as working a full-time job or buying a house, where a decrease in happiness and satisfaction is often seen over long periods of time.
Well, let’s conclude that with a layout instead saying how lucky I am right now married to my husband. This layout is for you Sweety. Thank you for everything you do. For making sure that we have a roof on our head and for securing our family. May Allah continue to shower both of us the patience to understand each other (kasi mahirap makipag away pag English ang salita hahaha!) and to set an example to our children on how a marriage life should be.
LO258 – Lucky To Have You
A Happy Family: Feelin’ Lucky by Traci Reed and Shawna Clingerman
Brook’s Templates – Duo 05 – That’s So Wordy by Brook Magee
Say hi to my girls, Julie and Julia. We named our youngest Julie because of our eldest Julia (sounds crazy right?). Well, we came up with Julia because my husband is the one who recommended it. Well, I’m a fan of Julia Roberts ever since so I said it’s fine with me to name our eldest Julia – instead of Judy or Jody which my MIL was trying to suggest. I’m not a fan of Juday LOL! Duh!
When we found out that we’re having another girl, it wasn’t that hard to choose another name. Julie & Julia the movie got released 2009 so I suggested that it would be nice to have two girls named alike. And Julie Andrews and Amy Adamas (the one who acted as Julie over the movie) again is one of my favorites. So I told hubby, his suggestion is another go go for me.
So there you are, that’s how we come up naming our girls. We have a name for a boy already. It’s a tradition to name him after his grandfather, so if Julie would have been a boy, it’ll be Hisham.
I created this layout using the kit below.
A digital scrapbooking kit by Brook Magee, A Tree is Nice brings early signs of spring and all things primitive and oh so refreshing! This kit invites you to go back to the basics, retell memories of being with the family and share your stories of frolicking in nature.

This kit has lots of references to nature and a variety of doodled trees, and more references to family and going back to your roots.

I made this layout for my dear friend. Whenever the theme is about boys, I have to ask help from her. Her little charmer is so cute I can’t resist to not make a layout for him. This kit is perfect for a little star like him.

LO248 – The Love of Family
I thought I will have a hard time with the template since it’s using a triangular shape mostly, but it came out just perfect – I think. This is how it looks like without the kit. Challenging to look at right? But I’m thankful that Brook and Traci love what I did with the kit and this template together. Awesome! Click the credits below to download these products.

Yup, I know I look insanely crazy on this photo. But it’s ok with me. This is because my friend over Riyadh celebrated her son’s 4th birthday. And I’m the only one missing in the group. So they had this idea to have a picture of me and print it out and they’ll use it as a props on the photo booth. And yeah, they all had to copy my silly face for that hahaha! All for the sake of friendship.
