a quickpage set to share

Has anyone seen New Moon yet?

Hehe... I know. Many of you might be shouting 'Enough already!' A week ago I might have too because I'm so not a fan of vampire stories. I didn't read the famous series and never wanted to either. But the other day Twilight was on HBO and I've heard so much about it from Angie aka IkeaGoddess's blog, so I decided to give it a try. Boy, I was having goosebumps and feeling the butterflies in my stomach the whole movie. Now I understand what the fuss is all about.

Well, let's just say the film didn't turn me into a vampire fan but it did make me want to scrap butterflies. LOL! So instead I took out an old picture of me and my guy (whose skin might not be sparkling like Edward Cullen but definitely has a heart of gold) and started scrapping. Here's the result:

I'm very satisfied with how it turned out. The title, the picture, the colors, etc. say it all. But I still could't get the butterflies out of my mind....

Enters the Bronze Earth kit by Rozie.

Rozie was hosting the November Color Challenge at DSC. To participate, you can either use the kit she's sharing in the thread to make something like layouts or quickpages to share, or work with the color swatch given to create a new mini kit of your own. I fell in love with the colors and the papers (and the butterflies too) from Bronze Earth right from the start!

Once I saw the papers in the kit, the wheel started turning in my head. Immediately I planned to make a quickpage set out of them. But, as usual, there were many other things going on in life at the same time (I'm sure you can all relate to that), and I thought the challenge would last the whole month (It's called 'November' color challenge, isn't it?), so I took my sweet time and didn't check the thread for a few days.

Yes, you guessed it right, I missed the train. LOL! I went back to the forum later but the challenge was closed already. So I PM'ed Rozie to ask for advice. She's such a nice and generous lady. She told me to go ahead and share the quickpages anyway, she would even give me the points for participating in the challenge eventhough I missed the deadline. Thank you so much, Rozie! (Why don't we go take a look at Rozie's stuff at DSC a little?)

So here it is, my Bronze Earth Quickpage Set. You may click on the image to download from 4shared or here if you prefer mediafire. Choose wisely where you want to download because it's 66mb. And please do take a few seconds to leave me comments. Thank you. :)

(I'm sorry the file is so big but I guess it's normal for 3 QPs. If anyone doesn't want all or prefer to download one by one, please send me an email to bkkpom at gmail dot com and I'll re-upload them then send you the links. Or if there's a lot of requests I'll just post the links in a new entry later.)

For my sample layouts using the quickpages below, I use the pictures of my friend PaMam's kids as a birthday gift for her and her boy Sinat. (Hope you like them ja!)

I had a terrible internet connection lately. It's connected in one minute then cut off in the next minute, phew!

And you know, I never watch Twilight or New Moon. Even I read about it everywhere (and my best friend is an Edward Cullen sucker! She never stops talking about him LOL), it doesn't make me want to see the movies hahaha... I'm kinda like someone else who's happen to be a vampires killer, LOL. That's another story ;-p

Thanks for the layout! I knew it'll be more beautiful than the kit ;p. Please tell everyone I didn't pay you for that, LOL. I love you, Pom.

And your quickpages are adorable!
Tell PaMam Happe (belated) Birthday to her son. Is she your friend in real life? That's cool!

Pom said...

@Lori, Digifree, CBH - TFL!! :)

@No Reimer Reason - Amber, I love your site and the nice templates there. Thanks for dropping by and leaving such encouraging comment.

@Rozie - I'm so glad you're here. Love your work!

@PaMam and Lisa - I love you gals too! Yes, Lisa, PaMam and I are close friends in real life, so are our children. We meet often to gossip and play. LOL!

Now, you are so obviously exaggerating about my CC layout! If you're reading this, people, don't forget to go check out Lisa's Chocolate Comfort kit and see for yourself. And, no, she's not paying me anything for saying this! (Or should I ask for something? LOL!!!) :))))

I really like it a lot and have more reading practice for understanding over all... i am very lazy for making a mind to do so. Thanks.

Pom said...

@jenny, I hope you're not a bot. Are you? LOL! You see, most real people won't come with an advertisement link.

I couldn't access your profile. I ran a search on one of your comments where you talked about yourself and found that it's also a part of a blogger user's info who also use "breathing room" as her blog name. Is that your blog? If so I'd be very delighted to know, coz that means we're of similar minds! :)
