Lost his tooth

Mervin lost his first tooth on 17 July this year. Yup, it was being pulled away by him school’s auntie (the caretaker) and later he lost it. Of course he was so proud in having his little tooth pulled off ‘cos he’s been trying to do that and I was also helping him to do that without success.
Glad that the auntie able to pulled it out and save me RM50 for dental visit..hehe..
Here are some close-up of the layout:
Using a few chipboard buttons with embossing powder and mist, plus a few die-cut brads from My Mind’s Eye lost & found line.
Punched out a few butterflies using Martha Stewart punchers, mist them and using gel medium.
Have used Technique Tuesday Ali Edward’s stamp for “today” and some Basic Grey letter stickers.
I was trying to use mist, embossing powder, stamps and gel medium on my layout. Trying to relive the Iris Babao Uy’s challenge in Scrap-it-lah before.
Talking about challenge, have you tried out this month challenge over at SIL yet? Try it and stand a chance to win a RAK.
Have fun!

First layout in 2011

I’m so glad that I managed to do my first layout this year and after that the 2nd and hopefully the 3rd one is coming.
To begin the year with an auspicious title, ha! So here is it: “Life is good”

Hopofully this new year is a really really good year to me and my family.
Am using the beautiful Basic Grey kit and some old stuff from other kit. I love how the mix and match turn out, which include pearls, doilies, glimmer mist, Teresa Collin’s butterfly, sticker and tag.

I hope you have had a great week and a fun week ahead. Don’t forget to join the Scrapbook Daisies’ blog hop.
Have fun!

With Scrap-a-little

First off I wanted to talk about the layout that I did for ScrapStreet using Helen’s sketch number 16. 
Here are a close-up of those hand-made flowers using doilies:
I even used one big doilies for the background embellishment:
Yupe, this is my father-in-law, one who is soft-spoken and well, a bit too skinny:

I’m using Basic Grey Kioshi paper which is mostly in purple color. I’m not a big fan of purple, that’s why I seldom use purple in my layout. Purple in itself is pretty, but it is hard for me to scrap using purple color. But I think this layout turn out okay.

Next is about the layout using Helen’s September sketch, one that to me is very easy to work with:

I’ve ink those letter sticker with white ink to match with my layout and have stamp swirls on the cardstock to add a bit of interest:

I just love Martha Stewart’s butterfly punch, can’t get enough of it and yes, I’m not tire of it yet, hee..
Distressing, distressing, lots and lots of distressing for this layout.
Here is the whole layout:
I’m using Basic Grey Max and Whisker’s paper for this layout.
Both pattern paper is available in Scrapbook Daisy. And do use Helen’s sketch to join in the challenge for the month.
