Another project life spread

Yes, right after Easter, I’ve got this to share – just another Project Life spread.

This time to record what we did on Friday, after welcoming back hubby from the air-port. We went to our familiar place – Marina club of Sutera Harbor Resort.

Tried out their breakfast platter with porch egg and discovered that I pretty much prefer sunny-side-up instead of porch egg. Plus, I prefer McD’s pancake. Anyhow, we finished our breakfast.

Been loving Ali Edwards’ word stamp. So have been using a lot of her stamp on one of the cards shown here:

Hope you all have a great week!

Scrapbook page

Finally I did a scrapbook page instead of the usual Project Life style. This time I finished a page about the light lunch that I had recently with my two boys. And also the first time I printed my own photos at home! Yay! And I’m loving it. Though not so satisfy with the color. It turns out to be a bit “old” looking.. anyway, I’m going to do that more, and next time maybe I should enhance the color before I print.

I find that I like distressed look and really really wanted to add flowers into the page even though it is a boy’s page, anyway, who says there is such a rule??

Light lunch scrapbook page


This page actually using a Christmas page, see those snowflakes? Would you notice if I don’t tell you. 😀

Oh ya.. and I still love those words stamps set from Ali Edwards. They are just so versatile and good reminder on how to look at life itself.


At the moment, I’m restraining myself  in buying more scrapbook pattern paper or kit that I saw online, ya, they are just so attractive and each and everyone of them are calling my name! Such a hard resistance to have. So far what I’ve bought  (ya.. I still have bought!) is the Prima golden flowers (that can be seen in the page) and Project life mini cards, plus a mini snap album for the December Daily project.

Well, I can’t just wait till December to use the project life journal cards, so I’ve used a few in the following Project Life page:

Have you tried out using Instax share to print your photo? They are just so cute! I still love doing that.


Second page is a page to remember our annual dinner, starting from preparation to the dinner itself. Lots of selfies here. ha!

I hope these pages would give you some push in doing your own scrapbook pages to record down the meaning behind all those photos that you’ve taken. I know I do needed this ‘cos it really is a very good way to put them down in printed format and jot down the memories that I wanted to keep. It is also a good way in telling your kids how much you care and how they were doing.


Have an awesome week!

Project Life – Scrapbook layout

Hi hi, it has been such a long time that I didn’t do any scrapbook pages. And ever since I’ve bought the Instax Share Printer, I go ga-ga about it and started printing small pictures of everyday events, so I’ve started my Project life scrapbook layout again, but this time I’m not restricting myself to document each and everyday but instead I just document things, people or events that I wanted to remember.

So, recently I came up with these few pages on photos that I’ve taken and since I’ve subscribed with Ali Edwards monthly Story Stamp, I’ve got my first stamp – “Prompts”.  A good way to get me started with my story, prompts that work and prompts that got me thinking.

Overall, it is such fun to document my life. Well, not such an interesting one but hey, it is MY LIFE and MY STORY, there could never be another person sharing this same story with mine.

Here, the fist page that was done using Prompt stamp set:

project life1


Another page which sits side-by-side with the page above:

project life2


And here showing some close-up of the brads and embellishment that I’ve used:
project life3 project life4 project life5


As for the next, these two pages is to remember a special event that happened this month – Cousin’s wedding banquet. Love the theme of that night, unfortunately I didn’t capture clear photo of the event venue, plus I didn’t even got chance to take photo with the bride and groom. Anyhow I’ve used their invitation card in the layout:

project life6


Second page (used mostly Ali Edwards’ word stamps):

project life7


Well, that’s it so far, hope you’ve enjoyed it.

Hopefully I’m going to play with my Instax Share again and do more layout soon. I’m in the middle of waiting for Ali’s 2nd stamp set – Get Real.

Day 144

24th May (Sunday): Mervin’s school family day and we all had a chance to attend this year as a family. We have missed this last year as we all went over to China to visit hubby.

Day 143

Way behind

Yes, I’ve been way behind of the things that I’ve promised myself to do everyday or at least once a week, in recording down the day-to-day life with one picture, the Project 365. So, here I’m trying to figure it out what had happened over the last month in May.

[No picture]

April 26th (Sunday): Went over to Rebecca’s home after church. One dreadful thing happened, Cal threw a toy over at Royden and got his upper lip cut. Straight used honey and then went to SMC, but the doctor doesn’t seems to help much and he even commented that it take time to heal as the lips are always wet, ridiculous for me. It turns out that sis brought Royden to Dr. Huang and confirm that it will heal by itself and nothing to worry about. Thank God.

Project 365

Day 115

April 25th (Saturday): Went straight to see South China Sea Place in Asia City show room with the boys and big sis. The boys were excited to see the show unit.

But we still went out afterwards to get our Vietnamese noodle -Pho.

Day 111

April 21st (Tuesday): Been to a day of conference at the 14th CONSAL. Amazingly and surprisingly I found myself be surrounded by librarians all over the Southeast Asia!

Enjoyed the night of local performances and amazed by how talented and hardworking they all have been.

Day 110
