Love layout and last year Christmas photos

As I was going throuh my photos from last year visit to Hong Kong and China, I discovered that I’ve so many photos to scrap about, especially on Disneyland. Gonna show some in my other blog – Glad to be here.

I’ll post up my LO here instead. 😉

So, people, Valentines day is near, get in the mood for love and check out those layout in Itti Bitty Scrap Shack challenge, some are available in the following blogs!!


At the mean time, I’m getting ready for the Chinese New Year celebration. Gong Xi Fa Cai!!

I’ve got them uploaded!

Yay!! I’ve finally got my phone to work again, I mean in loading photos into my PC. So I can show my LO here again.. yippiee!! I’ve also sent in my LO for Get in the mood for love challenge in Itty Bitty Scrap Shack, can’t be happier than this. Another happy news is that I’ve just got my order from Scrap-n-Crop, though a bit bended on the papers, but overall they are in good condition and I just can’t wait to use them, especially the Bazzill itty Bitty Blossoms and American Craft play and sixth avenue pattern papers.

Now let me show what I’ve sent in for Itty Bitty’s Challenge.
The love of my life.. other than my hubby .. of course are my two boys! And since I don’t have any recent photos of my hubby and I hardly can find hubby’s solo photo.. I might as well snap photos of my boys and do this LO. So I did and fortunately when I wanted to develop the photos which was taken using my phone, it allows me to upload files. Thank God.
So, here it is..


The love of my life –
Cal and Mer.
2 years apart and yet so much different on their characters and physical built.
Calvin is much taller and active.
Mervin seems like getting his dad’s height. But boys will be
boys, naughty and active as always, still…
Both are sweet in my eyes and precious in my heart.

I’ve used the swirl template from Hot off the press which came in together in the January Personal Shopper kit. The paper flower embelishement are actually free paper-piecing pattern from Scrapbook.etc. Black and white flowers are from Prima Got Flowers, round mini brads are from HOTP too, and finally the white heart shape brad is from Queen & Co. Oh.. and the alphabet stickers, they are from a dear friend who came back for visit from Aussie.. you know who you are.. 😉

Thanks for watching.

Scrapbook challenges

cScrapbooking challenges are fun. Before this, I thought to myself, well.. I’m not even a pro in doing scrapbooking yet.. why want to join in any challenges. When I first found out about what really are challenges in scrabook.etc magazine on my pool fun LO, to my surprise, I love it once I’m into it. It actually give me a guide on what I should use or do in my page in order to join in the fun.
Sometimes I just can’t start a page without some limitation.. the creativity part is just too wide especially when coming down to choosing my pattern papers and the most basic one – Layout, what scrappers call LO. So if there is some guidelines or I call it limitation that set out in the challenge, it would help me to start thinking on that line, also start to be creative on that line too. The fun part is to share with others my work and get lots of comments from people. I did it in, which is really a nice place to be with all those that having the same interest with me. Another site that I love to check out is ScrapScene which updated me with all the latest things that is happening in the scrapping world.
Just recently, Itty bitty Scrap Shack is holding a challenge on “Get in the mood for love!“.

Got this from their site:

Ya.. go ahead and have some fun, I surely am joining this even it I can’t .. I’m going to do this challenge for my LO.
