Son / 孩子

27 Sep. 2019: 最近被孩子的选择给难倒了。 一句,”妈,我要成为赛车手!” 就那么的让我烦了很久。他是到了那种认为读书不重要,文凭是什么,和我就是要的地步。
我们如何告诉他,要他完成他的学历, 完成他的中学生涯, 没有中学毕业时如何的辛苦, 如何的难进社会,如何的渺茫。。。可他还是很坚持的相信者他就是要成为赛车手。。
这本书“干嘛要他想的跟你一样?” 来得正是时候。
这是一本旧书,就在送来的书堆里面,很不起眼,就是拿起来翻了翻,刚好翻到一页, 读了几行,觉得我好像在看着自己的辅导过程,就和老公分享的封面,也就开始读了起来。

11/2/2020: 放了那么久的文稿没有博.. 今天才察觉..孩子已经报读了修车行业的课程.

他是那么的开心.每每放学回家后就和我谈起他学了什么.尽管是我问得比较多,可还是看得出他是比较开朗了.感觉上他是真正的在学,在成长. 很是替他高兴.

我们做父母的往往就是那么的看重孩子的前途,由我们的观点开始,而忘了孩子要的是什么.往往他们要的就只是我们的同意,我们的认定和鼓励.

当然在这其中我们也不能完全的放下心来任由的他们选择.

希望他是真正的在学习和快乐的成长.

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!
