Scrap-it-Lah February 2010 Challenge

Gosh,  I have totally forgotten to blog about the Scrap-it-lah Feb challenge.  I can be quite the blur blob when I am busy.  This month,  yours truly came up with the challenge to mix the Oriental and Valentines' theme together.  Why such a funny challenge?  This year,  the Chinese New Year and Valentines Day falls on the same day Feb 14th.  Hence, I thought it would be challenging to come up with a challenge that would incorporate this 2 occasions.

Here is my simple take:

Most of the DTs chose to scrap on their spouses,  I have decided to concentrate on my family.  To me,  there is nothing more important than my family and I would like to stress to my kids that they should always prioritise our little family unit.  I have also added a little chinese saying:

"With your hand I hold,  Together we will grow old."

I thought it was quite apt for this photo of ours.
