Another sketch challenge over at Scrapbook Challenges. This is sketch 168:

Do head over to Scrapbook Challenges and join in the fun.

I’ve flip the sketch and tilt it aside, ink those edges on the pattern paper and my photo. The photo actually was taken awhile back and the incident actually happened last night right before bed-time.

Probably since I’ve left my boys for 5 days being with hubby, my 2nd DS discovered something new to do like kissing me on the lips for more than ten times in one go and hugged me, then told me I’m pretty *LOL* How sweet was that!? I was holding my surprise look though.
I’ve also put some white ink on the title area to make it stands out more from the journal sheet.
Product used: (from Scrapbook Deals 4U September Delight kit) Fancy Pants Delight line PP and journal sheet, Creative Cafe Chocolate Diecut ; Kaiser Craft blings, American Craft letter stickers and ink.


Here is another layout using the Delight kit from Scrapbook Deals 4U. I did this layout within an hour, super fast huh!? Not following any sketch, but just go according to my mood and the colors of those photos. I’m getting the blue, green and chocolate from the photo, adding some red flowers. Love the kit.

Product used: Creative Cafe Chocolate Diecut, Pink Paislee Captivating Chipboard Alphabet, Petaloo Mulberry Street Flowers, Delight Collection – Fancy Pants PP, yellow pearls from Kaiser Craft.


Yes, PbsKids is my sons’ favorite site, both of them would pester me to let them play in the site once I got online in my in-laws’ place every Saturday night. There they go again on the notebook:
I’ve used sketch #74 from Creative Scrappers for this layout and those pretty papers from Basic Grey Marrakech which came in Scrapbook Deals 4U April kit. Yes, this kit has been sitting there for several months ‘cos the patterns are just too overwhelming for me. I should have known earlier that it is ok for me to cut them up and use them sparingly. After browsing in their gallery then only I realize that (what a slow couch I am :D).

To add some glimmer, I’ve used the Stardust pen that came in their September Delight kit to draw on the peacock, it is only visible when you look from the side.

I still have a lot of paper from the Marrakech kit, and the Delight kit, and the recent October Delilah kit. Maybe I’m just too careful in using those beautiful paper or maybe I haven’t got that many pages to scrap and I’ve already skipped two months from them but I’m definitely still getting their November kit which is just too good to be missed. It was a hard decision for me ‘cos the other two kits looks so yummy as well. However since I know I’ll be doing more boy’s page rather than girl, and we don’t have Fall over here, so I choose Kit #3 – Flutter Butter.

I’m sure when the December kit is out, I’ll definitely need some more paper for Christmas cards šŸ˜‰
Edited: ops, forgot to put in the product used earlier on.
Product used: Basic Grey Marrakech PP, Humbly Print journaling spot, Me & My big idea chipboard sticker, ZIG pen, American Craft foam letter sticker.


I love those beautiful paper from BoBunny included inside the October kit of Scrapbook Deals4U, they are just so pretty. I’m getting the Delilah Kit and I’m loving every pieces of paper came in it with all those embellishment as well. I felt a bit sorry that I had to cut them up and there are also paper that are pretty on both sides! I haven’t come to use that piece that, it is going to be a hard decision for me to choose either side and forgo the other side..

The layout that I did is using the Delilah Kit and some extra embossing powder and vintage lace trim. I’ve got all my photos processed with white borders but then had to cut two of them out in order to get just the boys instead of the whole playground. And just to make it pop a bit, I’ve use foam adhesive on one of the smaller square.
I’ve also made some ruffles out from the ribbon that came together with the kit and finally put on the vintage trim to make it more complete. Ruffles inspiration from Moxie Fab World.
I’ve embossed several layers of red embossing powder on the title chipboard that came along in the kit.
It is just so fun to be able to create a page out from the kit.
Using laughter as a prompt from Categories Story. Truely, my sons laugh makes my heart sing. Love seeing them enjoying themselves in the playground through my high pitch voice shouting over “becarefullllll !” LOL
Yes, when I slow down, I can see that their true happiness became mine.
Product used: BoBunny PP, buttons, flowers and stickers, Jenni Bowlin journal stickers.

Almost everyday

I was playing with the glimmer mist again! I wanted to do a simple page as instructed in the class of geography over in Scrapbook Deals 4U which should include some stitching, a non-scrap thing and with travel theme. So here is my take on the class:
Journal: Almost everyday we stopped by Uncles Alex’s home just because you wanted to play games on his computer. You’ll start by asking with a puppy face but if I say no you’ll start whining all the way home. So, almost everyday, we’ll stop by for at least half an hour.
One thing though, probably a little car is more suitable on where I’ve put the flowers…
Product used: Cream cardstock, Pink Paislee enchanting rub-on, Prima flowers, Making Memories tiny alpha MixedLedger, Delight Journaling sheets, Tattered angels’ auburn glimmer mist, sail boat charm, Pink Paislee letter stickers and some black felt swirl.

Just being me

Did this layout for Scrapbook Deals 4U cramfest horticulture class.

I’ve got this photo copied from hubby’s mobile phone which he took one day when we were over in LHDN (Lembaga Hasil Dalam Negeri) waiting to settle our income tax, I was busy thinking or doing something and wasn’t totally aware that he was going to take my picture. Thanks dear, else I won’t even have a photo of myself to scrap.
As for those flowers, the Petaloo Mulberry is from Scrapbook Deals 4U September Delight kit. I still have lots of those papers that I haven’t used in that kit. And I’m already ordering their October kit! Just can’t miss their lovely that put together by Martha. There are just so many yummy goodies inside, they are still selling it in the store, do grab one while you can.
Being me is simple, who can be a better me than myself?
Being me is simply to love anything beautiful, scrapbooking,
craft, decoration, bright colours, vintage look, distressed look,
being love, being happy, donut, cupcake, gossip magazines,
Hollywood E! News, reality show, remodelling show,
Hong Kong modern series, surfing, blogging, day dreaming,
just relax and read my magazines, snuggle with my boys and do nothing,
go window shopping and buy nothing.
Really, Iā€™m just being me.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
Product used: Autumn Leaves Resplendent, Prima flowers, Petaloo Mulberry Street Flowers, Kaiser Craft Rhinestones, American Craft letter thickers, some trim and Prima flower package backing.

Birds of a feather

Instead I’ve used “birds of the same” feather as my title, didn’t spell out the word feather as I’ve already been using real feather on the layout. This is for a math’s challenge over in Scrapbook Deals 4U.
Have used some rhinestones and jewels on the chipboard and the pattern paper.

I’ve actually been wanting to scrap these two pages of my boys with their cousin, but there photos were kept in the envelope after being processed until this challenge. Thanks to challenges, else I’ll never get these photos scrap and even used up that big chipboard of peacock feather, and those feathers!
Product used: PP from Design by reminisce: Autumn afternoon; Basic Grey: Marrakech; Chatterbox: fabulous big star; Lily Bee: French couture; letter stickers for title from American Craft and Making Memories; chipboard from Basic Grey Marrakech; jewels and rhinestones from Prima and Kaiser Craft; some lace ribbon and distressing ink.

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.

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

Pox attack

Started in doing this layout days ago and only managed to get it done yesterday. To me the hardest part is to fill the empty space which I did with swirl stamps.

Another thing is to include 3 photos in this layout and I’ve hide away one photo behind the right photo. Now, there were all 3 of them who got the Chicken pox, both my boys and my hubby. The worst one is my hubby whose face is still filled with spots. These happened in June and July.

“First, it was Calvin who got the bugs, then Mervin, then KF, who got it real bad. The boys just had slight fever but not KF. there were spots on their faces and bodies but not as bad as DF’s. they were happy to stay home and put on Calamine lotion, but not KF. Thanks God that it wasn’t H1N1 and that KF was home when it started to get bad. – 2009”
Products used: Prima Moda Collection PP and Build-A-Swirl stamp, American Craft Fashion Accent and felt letter stickers, Making Memories Paparie journal pad, My Little Shoe Box letter stickers. All these from Scrapbook Deals 4U kit.

Maybe if…

Maybe if I’ve taken the day off, maybe if I didn’t send you there, maybe if you were not persistend, then you won’t have been punished for things that you haven’t done wrong, ‘cos all you wanted was just to have some friends, ‘cos you think others are just as friendly as you are. Just maybe… 12 June 2009
