Know This

Using Inspired Blueprints Sketch #76,

Took this photo while we were cycling at East Coast Park. There was a sandcastle competition (I guess cuz' I was minding the bicycles). Honestly, the sand on Bintan beach was so much finer and 'softer' than those on Singapore beaches.


Sometimes you need to step outside,
get some air, and remind yourself of who
you are and where you want to be.

I don't really like the patterned paper that was behind the white cardstock, therefore, I decided to use it as mat for some added details and machine-stitches around the edges. I used Maya Road butterfly chipboards as mask and misted the white cardstock with Tattered Angel Mist. Using some embroidery thread, I stitch along the outline of the butterflies.

Some washi tape here and there.... just experimenting with it....

Thanks for looking!!

Customized Wedding Guestbook

A wedding guestbook for one of my friend's brother's wedding (photo taken by my hubby). Honestly, it's much more vibrant and nice than the picture shown. (Hubby to lazy to take pic of it under the natural sun... bleh!)

All in all... it's contain 30 pages of mainly Webster's Pages patterned papers... Took me quite sometime to complete the whole album (Drained my mojo out for this...). Zutter-bind them and.. loving the end result!!

Thanks for dropping by!!

Pencil Lines Sketch #246

Using Pencil Lines Sketch #246,

Here's my take,

I splattered some Maya Mist onto the background (don't really like clean background nowadays). Took a while for me to think of the title because I had too many missing alphas from my old collection of AC Thickers. In the end, I cut off the "f" to replace "r" and "m" to replace "u" in the yellow ones, use 5 to replace "s" in black one and cut off "k" to make a "h" too. Felt so satisfied to use them up!


Meimei don't like to brush her teeth.
Whenever it's time to brush her teeth,
we have to wrap her with the towel
(with her arms in it),
and force her to open her mouth.

Isn't the tiny wooden spools for Maya Rd cute?! Love using them so much! And I used plenty of tiny buttons to fill up the frame chipboard.

Love the Washi Tape from Hambly!

the STRESSOR that drive almost everyone in my workplace crazy is over! Was really really busy with the preparation for the big audit that I barely have enough mojo to scrap anything else beside the custom order for a wedding guestbook for a friend of mine.

I took lots of photos of my 2 girls thou'.... plenty of projects that I wanna do. Hopefully, I can spend a little big more time scrapping!

In the meantime, wanna share a layout I did about a week ago or so..... Just don't have enough time and energy to post it.

Took this photo last Christmas at Paragon. The girls were playing and posing with the wigs on. These are the few pics that are salvageable (phone camera, poor lighting and 'couldn't keep still' girls).

Ok... gonna have a very good night rest now.... laterz.....

Thanks for dropping by!!

Lucky (Pencil Lines Sketch #243)

I want my girls to know that they will never be alone in their lives. Despite all the bickering and cat fights (in the future??), they will always have each other to hold on to....


The greatest happiness in life is knowing
that you are loved for who you are
and sometimes,
in spite of who you are


Mainly Studio Calico kit (among other stuff)
