I have to say that scrapbooking is more than a hobby to me. I have met so many friends from scrapbooking which I am so thankful for. Issa - a filipino scrapper that I have met through Scrappin Kids has awarded me with this award. I am indeed blessed...
I have decided to play along with the latest Beary Box Sketch. Do check it out here.
A simple layout today. We were at Skytrex at Shah Alam last saturday. I decided to celebrate Sean's birthday early there and we had so much fun on the obstacle race and the flying fox. Yup - I went on too- to my horror. But it was fun...
Here's a picture of Sean flying through the air! Thanks Eric for capturing this very cool photo.
SSF pp, Kaiser rubons, Prima felt tree branch, Maya Road Chipboard arrows, Scrapworks diecut pp with words "Outdoor Fun", My Mind's Eye boy rubons, Pink Paisley leaf sticker and alphas and Momoyo brown, Brilliance ink and gold flower stickers.
Finally dug up some old photos of Halloween 2007 and I managed to do this layout. I must say I am not very pleased with it and I am not sure on what I should make of it. But I was what I did on a whim last night so c'est la vie...
MM Halloween pp, felt stickers and Chipboard stickers, Coredinations cs, Cuttlebug with Spider web embossing folder, Prima flower, Momoyo brads and buttons and Autumn Leaves buttons too. :)
Check out this sneak peek! Yup its tutorial time again up at the SK forum. Our Resident Designer Issa will be sharing a beautiful tutorial with us. Registration is essential and hope to see you all there...
Everytime I see one of my scrapping friend's layout published in a magazine, I get really excited and happy. Just went to Papier just now and bought this magazine and found that Wati's layout has been published there! A very nice surprise indeed and I am so happy for her. Congrats my dear.
It has been a hectic weekend. Took Sean and his pals to Skytrex for his birthday. What is Skytrex? Check it out here. I must admit I am very very afraid of heights. Jessy and her hubby Eric came with me - bless her little soul - encouraged me to try out the obstacle course. I plucked up whatever remaining courage I had and I did! Its sore arms and legs after it all but it was worth it! Willupload the photos when I receive them - Jessy - hint hint! LOL...
For challenges of a different kind, the designers of Scrappin Kids including yours truly will be running a whole weekend of challenges next weekend from the 24th till the 26th April, 2009. Do join us here. Lots of Raks and all to be won! Hope you will come join us in the fun!
I have been walking around like a zombie due to the jet lag. My friend Kay says that I am weak. ok ok, I have decided that I shouldn't be weak anymore and try to actually restore some normalcy in my life. Sleeping 5 hours a day and running around does make me look somewhat "panda-ish". I have decided to scrap last night and even though it was noather simple layout - it was somwhat satisfying and I slept till 7.48 this morning! Yaaayy - nearly 8 hours sleep.
Talking about sleep - check out Izzie's sleeping position. Izzie loves to sleep with her legs up in the air. This dog actually thinks that she is human! Ooops - that makes 2 of us. I should have said - Paws in the Air! Hee hee...
Pink Paislee pp and chipboard embellishments, Thickers foam alphas, Zig Singature photo pen and lots of 3d foam.
Over the years I have accumulated a lot of papers and some even dating back to 1994. I am going to do a giveaway but I have been hesitant as the papers are all so old. If you wish to receive 12 sheets of old scrapping paper, do leave me a message here and I will select the receivers at random.
Another sketch challenge by Jessy - so I am thinking - maybe its time for us to run sketch challenges at Scrapping Inspirations. I could sponsor the RAK every month. Hmmm - need to talk to Jessy about it. Sorry - I was just thinking out loud and didn't realise that I typed it out. But if you are reading this and you are interested - do leave a comment so that we can judge whether its viable with to start running this in Malaysia.
My Sketch challenge this time by Jessy
My simple interpretation of the sketch. I apologise for the picture quality but its been raining cats and dogs here. No light. Snapped this picture of Clarissa when we were in Perth. She was so happy on the swing and it shows.
My journalling reads:
Its one of life's simple pleasures - sitting on a swing. As you were swinging to and fro - you were laughing and smiling. You seemed so happy. As you grow older and problems arise, I want you to remember all these carefree times. Perhaps when there seems to be no way out, just sit yourself on a swing and swing all your troubles away. It's a simple thing - happiness. Remember this - be happy. February 2009
Sassa Fras Lass pp, Coredinations cs, Prima flowers, Bling and pearls from local shops, Thickers foam alphas, White Zig pen, Distress Inks - brushed corduroy and pop up dots.
Izzie went to the groomers today. I am positive that she hates the groomers as much as she hates the car ride there. She normally likes to rest on one of the kids for comfort. If not, she will be shaking terribly from the fear. She is sleeping on Sean for comfort after we picked her up from the groomers.
She didn't seem to be in a good mood. Who would be? After all that plucking - ouch! She sulked all the way home.
What? Still taking more pics? Do you know what I have been through? All that plucking, trimming and cutting?
Gosh - you won't stop?
I am warning you. Stop pointing that thing in my face...
I was so inspired by the SK april challenge using 10 cards that I made another album titled "Que Sera Sera." I loved the photos that we took of the kids at the Madame Tussauds in Hong Kong way back in 2006. Yes, I know - I am very behind in scrapping everything. The problem is I am never systematic and I am one who likes to scrap whichever photo I draw inspiration from.
I played with the old "Happy Family" cards and it suited those photos as the theme of these cards were professions. Hence I came up with this album. Hope you like it.
The album cover.
Love how the star album opens up.
Who knows - she could be a writer like Shakespeare or he could be iconic like Ghandhi.
Gulp! Imagine finding Sean behind bars? But being as knowledgeable and adventurous like Indiana Jones would be too cool!
Who doesn't wish for kids as smart as Einstein? Or as handsome and suave like James Bond? I wish! Yeah right, in my dreams....
Hmmm,, as famous as Marilyn Monroe? Or a great golfer like Tiger Woods?
Marry into Royalty? Now thats a scary thought - the repercussions etc...
At the end of the day, as long as they are happy in whatever they are going to be - everything should be ok.
Handmade Star album, Cork pp, Jilly Bean pp, Happy Family cards, Acid free cs, SSF die cut stickers (thanks Aida), Dymo journalling, Momoyo buttons, Grosgrain ribbon and beads.
