ms. scrap-tastic beauty pageant (week 5)

week #5 - "if i could change one thing"

it was another hurdle for me when i reached week #5 for the ms. scrap-tastic challenge. i had to dig deep for that week's task and it was not easy.  i finished the layout with just a few hours to spare.

the challenge:  the title must be "if i could change one thing..."
Is there one thing in the world you wish you could change? one thing you wish that no one had to experience or live through. One thing that would make a difference in the future. What is your one thing you wish you could change. 

and, we must use 3 photos, a stamping of some sort on the layout and use paint.

it's a good thing the election happened this year and it held a lot of meaning for us filipinos.  using that theme for the challenge was closer to home and more personal for me.

i used the title as part of my initial journal: I knew that IF I COULD CHANGE ONE THING I would have to exercise my right to vote.

Journal: For almost 12 years, I was a passive citizen. For 9 years we were stuck with a leader we thought was the answer. Those times, I never voted. I was mute to what I wanted from our government. This year, a decision was made, it is time for change and the first step was to vote. To choose the right leader that will lead us to greatness. And he won... Another chapter begins...

  1. Hi liza, I can relate to your layout. For the first time in so many years, it is only this year that I voted again! The last time I voted was when Ramos won as president! Great layout!
