This is my response to Manang Marissa's challenge in Kaya! I think fear of my sister's wrath made my scrapping mojo come running back to me from wherever it has wandered. Hehehe. Anyway, I am quite happy to be playing with scissors again.
Julia Fordham's songs were the soundtrack of my life way back when. This layout is based on the song Girlfriend. I relate to this song for three reasons:
1) In the nineties when this song was popularized, I thought I was in love with a guy who was a "boyfriend ng iba." The lyrics "Don't tell your girlfriend about me cause your girfriend won't like girls like me" were the perfect refrain for my angst-ridden non-existent lovelife.
2) This was also the time when in search of answers, Susie and I frequented manghuhulas or fortune tellers from Quezon City to Makati to Tagaytay City.
3) The good advice the song imparts is as relevant to me then as it is now. In order to be loved truly and fully by someone else, I should stop being pathetic. I mean, we should love ourselves first and foremost.
I used Scrapbook Hawaii's fully loaded First Kiss kit to create this layout, and a few items from my stash. You can view the details here.
