Summer (?) Kit Paper & Elements by Dielle

Last Saturday, at a lunch for visiting relatives from Australia, I took this picture of two of my nieces having an impromptu make-up session. The girl looking at the mirror is not usually allowed by her dad to wear make-up, but he happened to have to leave right after the lunch. Her cousin decided to take advantage of his absence to whip out her make-up kit and turn our dining table into a make-up studio. đŸ˜€

I’m closest to the make-up owner, we’re closest in age (I’m just two years older than her) and our families are the closest in our big extended family. It’s always fun when we get together, her mom (my cousin) and my dad are usually the “schemers”, organizing our parties and out-of-town trips and other events. (And I’m usually the one made to document all those events. :P)

Family Reunion Scrapbook Page

with 10 comments

Last Saturday, my branch of the family met with our cousins who most of us had never met before. Each branch had always had their own reunions but never combined. Most of us didnt even know each others names, just those of the older generation (my dad, siblings and cousins.) The only descendants of Manuel Lozano and Josephine Lozano-Carballo met one afternoon and had lots of fun singing, dancing and eating. Who knew so many of my cousins were such good singers!

This reunion was also planned ’cause each branch lost a member earlier this year, to cancer. The older ones decided that it was time we stopped meeting in funerals and it was time the next generation got to at least know each others names and faces.

Not everyone was able to make it due to work and prior commitments but those who made it had a blast, catching up, eating up all the food and watching (in horror? fascination? heart-in-our-throats-fear? hehe.) my dad crazy-dancing away with the cousins singing along.

This scrapbook page contains some of the pictures I got to take, of the many younger cousins and the first generation cousins:

Yet Another Scrapbook Page

with 7 comments

I made a page for my friend, after we spent the afternoon together last Monday. We hadn’t seen each other in at least a year, and she asked me earlier that day if I was free to meet up in the afternoon.

I brought my camera so we could take pictures of each other. When I got home, I used the first (and only candid) picture I got of my friend to make this scrapbook page. I chose the quote and the background images of Marlene Deitrich because my friend reminds me of those old time actresses who did whatever they wanted and still managed to be so nonchalant about it.
