Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2010

Its been quite a while since I last updated my blog.  My apologies - I have been so busy with Track and Field day, 2 football tournaments,  change in maid and our vacation that I just couldn't do anything else in between. I know I have not wished everyone a Merry Xmas - although its late but Merry Christmas to all my blogger friends and hope you had a great Christmas.

I still have not had anytime to scrap - the hired help has proved to be very challenging and I find myself spending a lot of time with the house chores.  

I leave you with some photos of my 2 in Seoul,  Korea.

Having fun in the snow.

Kimchi anyone?

Loving the rides at Lotte World.

Skiing in Jison.

Fantasizing being a World Cup football player at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.

An interesting old man in Insadong.

Merry Christmas 2010 to everyone!

Cooking peanut candy.

The Fish market at Noryanjin - we tasted very yummy seafood there - absolutely fresh!

Guards at the entrance of the Gyeongbukyong Palace.

Going crazy at the palace corridor.

Posing in the Korean Folk Village.

Working hard pounding grains.

Scrap-it-Lah December What's In a Name Challenge - Take 2

What a totally meaningful challenge Jessy came up with.  I had to do another take on it and this time I have decided to scrap about Sean's chinese name.  Another simple layout that I really enjoyed making. Hope you like it too.

Scrap-it-Lah December What's In a Name Challenge - Take 1

Jessy came up with the idea that we would all scrap our names and explain what it means.  I have always wanted to tell my kids why their chinese names are they way they are and this was the perfect opportunity to do so.  For the challenge details,  please head over to here.

Here is my simple take on the challenge using my favourite Scarlet Lime kit and some personal add-ons. Not forgetting the vellum that I have hoarded through the years.  Hee hee...
