Didn't think I'd be able to finish this one in time for the Scrapbytes' Challenge. I had to work on it partially in Tagaytay yesterday, then finish it today at home so I could upload before the deadline. It was quite a challenge because colors to be used had to be vibrant. Since I am partial to the vintage-and-washed out look, I had to figure out a way to make the colors still stand out. The scrolls were inspired by a lay-out of either Issa or Liezl of LB Scrapaholics a few months ago for Scrapbooks-Hawaii's stamping a cs challenge. Sorry, my short memory is failing me right now.

Two weeks ago, we went on a trip around the Laguna Loop. (That's where we met Chickmunk.) We stayed in a place called Caliraya Resort. To get to the place, we had to ride a boat to the hotel. It wasn't the best hotel, but it had some good amenities. One of them which we really had to try was the mudslide.

The mudslide, as the name implies, is basically a man-made slide along the 100-ft slope of the hill. Plastic sheet covered a narrow area spanning the length. No technology necessary here since a man sat at the top of the sheet, pouring soapy water mixed with mud down the slide. And just like any other slide, you slide down but with the added bonus of being really muddy as you hit the wet mud pool at the bottom. Galo couldn't slide down by himself so I sat in front of him and held his feet from behind me and together we went down. Weeeeeeee!!! We just did it once but it was enough to make our vacation.

Journal: April 14, 2008 Caliraya Resort, Laguna. Mommy and I slid down the mudslide. It was wet, soapy and dirty. My kind of fun!
