Some silly time

We were waiting in the parking space like usual when hubby got things to do in the bank. From this bank to the other in settling his bills. We were waiting and got nothing to do, while wasting on the petrol, we might as well off the engine, open up the car doors and let some fresh air in, what more is it more environmental free, right? So the boys got bored and they got out of the car and started doing some silly things, so I quickly grab my camera and ask for some silly poses, ha! This is what I get.
This is definitely worth to capture and recorded down. Though we had so much of these silly times from time to time, but it had been more fun with the camera and a story to tell. Hopefully when the boys are older, they’ll still laugh about it 

 Have pulled out my stash of doilies, Prima flowers, My Mind’s Eyes paper, Making Memories journaling pad, mist and Martha Stewart butterfly punchers, plus a swirl die-cut from MM’s Slice machine.

Would I let them do those silly pose again? Yup, definitely!
Have you join in the challenge over at Scrap-it-lah!? Go and have fun!
Happy weekend you all!

Do believe

I just realised that I’ve a page that I forgot to share after loading its pictures here.
Here is it, a page that I need to have distressing on my title, used fabric and distressing:

I’ve used crackle paint on my lettering and did two fabric flowers.

I’ve used a random photo that taken in the car on our way home. Love that dimple!
I’ve used stash from here and there, you can tell that they are not from the same paper line, especially that shape die-cut PP that I’ve been putting off for a long time.

Happy scrapping!

Brave boy – Creative Scrappers

One Saturday, I had some time with this little boy after meeting his mom in giving her a mini album. When I offer to took him for a ride, he quickly grab his hat and hanky and without any hesitation, wanted to follow me, doesn’t even need his parent to be around! Isn’t it such a cutie?
I managed to snap a few shots with him in the car while on the way to pick up my two sons from art class. I know.. I may be the one who spoil the photos *LOL*
I’m using Studio Calico kit down till those small note card that came along the kit! Yes, that puppy is actually a note card saying who’s packed the kit. It was Joy who did the packing, so I’ve used it and convert it into a tag with the word “Joy ride”, isn’t it great! I amazed myself sometimes *LOL*
I’ve pop up those small embellishment to make them more dimensional and I’m loving the effect, look at this cute camera.
This page is done using CS sketch #114.

Peep, happy weekend! I know I will.

The walk

I did a very quick but thoroughly thought over layout last night after seeing the sketch #76 of Creative Scrappers. One that hinted the use of paint or the same sort.I found the perfect pattern paper for this sketch and have used ink and glimmer mist on the background. The pattern paper is just nice for those photos as well as my boys were enjoying a walk along our neighbourhood road that are not fully done yet.

This walk of their is actually being called jogging by them. But instead we just walk.
In these picture, one of them was collecting pebbles, and one was carrying a stick. They wanted to go further up but lazy mom made up stories to get them home *grin*.
Product used: PP, buttons and stickers from Bo Bunny, glimmer mist from Tattered Angels.

Espress yourself

Not really a well taken picture of the layout. Anyway, just wanna share this using the sketch from Creative Scrappers

Still having the “simple” in mind from Scrap-it-lah, I tried to use some of those journaling bits from Humbly Print and my stamp sets from Sassafras trim trimmery. I’m still thankful for those die-cut flowers sent in by Suzanne (Thanks Suzanne!).

Since I needed some tiny pearl for the butterfly body and I ran out of tiny pearls, I’ve cut up Jennie Bowlin Studio Pearl Flowers and used that as the tiny embellishment separated on those butterflies and on the overlay.

Thanks for looking.
Product used: Jenni Bowlin studio pearl flowers, Humbly Print journaling bits, Urban Lily doodle Daisy, Sassafras trim trimmery and black ink.

Finally done

Yes, exam is over and yet I finally got my paper in (just for share).

Here would be my take:


I’ve made some lollipops flowers to go along with it as I though flowers would be too girlie for this page. Those swirls are actually traces from a chipboard sticker backing and ink with green color ink. And since my sewing machine is not working and I’m so lazy to put it back on after my boys took off some part of it, so I’m using fake stitching on the edges.

I’m using Desiree’s “You gotta be”song’s relics as the title and journaling. I love that song, would really hope Cal will get what it means.
I’m also eagerly waiting for weekend to play with those papers and tools that I’ve been abandoning recently. I’ve got myself a pre-loved cutter from Creative Memories too!

Fun, Love

I still think this page is lacking of something on the upper part of the page. Hmm.. probably I’ll add some bubbles somewhere…

Journal: Sharing {fun, love} & delight in simple things everyday!

This is actually for a challenge in Scrapbook Deals 4U as they are having a Cramfest there starting from this week. The challenge is to do a layout with any of the first 5 sketches available over in PageMaps for September, using 3 photos, combining journal and title together and use some punctuation in the title.
I’m using this sketch

Hmm.. some bubbles definitely need to be included.. will see how..

My boys were actually having some fun messing around with their hair in the bath while we were over in China.
TSL!

Product used: American craft letter thickers and stickers; Making Memories letter stickers, My Mind’s Eye Bloom & Grow PP; border punches from Fiskars.
