Wun you sit down

My little nephew again....

He was sitting on his baby chair.... which he hated a lot!! He will keep wiggling here and there and won't sit still.

The cardstock was misted with 3 different colours. The lace doily was a last minute addition.....

The border of eyelets and brads was inspired by the online class "Something from almost nothing" prompt 1. Bought the eyelets and brads quite sometime back when I had just started scrapbooking.... need to use them to make room for newer ones!!

The buttons are also inspired by "... use your stash..use your stash...." my very own motto.... heh..I used liquid pearl to give the rubons more texture.

Isn't the ice-cream cute?? I bought in while holidaying in Japan....
Gotta rush on my other layouts that are due for submission.... have a great weekend!!!

She goes on & on

Good morning!! A little late for the reveal... but here's my take for Sketch #96 at Creative Scrappers.

This is not usually my style.... so I was quite stuck when I saw the sketch... but I managed to pull it off... Heh...
The title 'She goes on & on'..... because she just can't stop talking..... she will chat and chat and chat... until your throat gets dry... and she will still goes on and on....
Used a white cardstock which I likely brushed some paint and misted it a little.

Because Rina was wearing a bumblebee swimsuit, I can't resist using a bee rubOn on the layout too.

Traced swirls from a used chipboard and handsewed them with embroidery thread..... and I'm done!

Please head over to Creative Scrappers to join in the fun!!

First Assignment for Butterfly Crafts

Just got back from Hongkong last night. Tiring but happy to spend so much time with my hubby and the 2 kids. Now.. I had to nurse my sore arms. Even though we brought our 2 prams with us. Roads, facilities and transports are not really prams or wheelchairs friendly. Moreover, the 2 girls will only sat there long enough when they are asleep.

In summary, Hongkong is a good place to shop but not sightseeing... I much prefer Japan... Heh...

Anyway, would like to share a my 1st layout for Butterfly Crafts. Do join in the fun!!

I kept the layout simple to keep the focus on the photos.

Used a mixture of alphas to use up the Thickers... so that I can buy new ones??! I painted Distress crackle paint around the title to give it more texture. Love the cute cherry stamp from Unity Company (note: I applied glossy accent onto the cherry after I took the photos.)

And here... I played with my new tool.... i-top from Imaginisce!! It is so easy and fun to make your own brads! I used some scrap paper with the cute little birdie print...cut it.... and.. TA DA.... it's done!! Miss Lee T.T...... want me to make some for you?? ;P

To Hongkong!!

Just wanna add a quick update before flying off to Hongkong (with my family) for a holiday!

Made 2 cards with some scrap papers from a kit. Didn't know what to do with the scrap papers but really really wanna used up all those papers that are too small for a layout.... So.... I created 2 cards with it.

First layout

First layout of myself!! One of my 2010 resolutions. To scrap more about myself, my thoughts, my attitudes, my beliefs.... everything and anything I can think of. I want my girls to know more about their mummy and have something to look back to.... when I am gone...

Using Creative Scrappers Sketch #94.......

Here's my take..... Achievement in 2009.


1) Kept my sanity even with the 2 little monsters around
2) Surviving in my new workplace (still struggling thou') (think positive.... think positive... think positive... )
3) My 2 little princesses growing up happy and healthy (most important of all!!!)

First time using Ranger crackle accent.... love the glossy and crackle effect at the same time!! Did you see the new heart shaped border..... used Martha Stewart border punch... LOVE IT!!

Butterfly Crafts Challenge....

Feeling a little better today but still hmmm.. unwell?? Is it me or the weather is getting warmer. I can feel the heat 'coming out' from my body.... maybe it's too 'heaty'.

Meimei is having fever, cough and flu... thanks to the Mummy (sigh....). She is also as stubborn as her Mummy. She will refuse to take her medications despite coaxing and bribing her with jelly. In the end, we had to force it down her throat and make sure that she don't spit it down... like what she normally will do.

On a lighter note, Butterfly Crafts is back with their sketch challenge. Their March sponsor is Scrapgogo. Do play along!!

Little notebooks

Just a quick update and off to take a nap. Been having cough and fever for the past few days. Even so, have to drag myself to work yesterday as there was no coverage in the morning. Thereafter, reach home, ate a little, took my medications and off to sleep.
Luckily, dear hubby and domestic helper were there to entertain the kids....

I hate it when the amount of scrap papers keep piling up. They are either too small to use for my next projects or too lazy to go through the pile... heh.

I made this 2 notebooks for myself. One is to jot down little ideas, quotes, titles, etc that I come up with and the other for my work purposes....

Used my Zutter to bind them. Ain't they cute?
