Wanna have some fun!?

Check this out: Cramfest 2010, 2nd Annual Back to School blast over at Scrapbook Deals 4U.

I’ve been subsribing to their monthly kit ever since.. err.. ops.. many many months ago, and I’ve been greedy to keep all those kits especially the recent one and love them so much that I still haven’t really gone into using them! Together with SD4U, I’ve also subscribe to the Basic Grey month page kit and I also haven’t come into using them fully!

Gosh! I’m greedy huh? But then this is all because I’ve lost my creative juices and now I need some push to get me back on track again. I mean I need to create, I feel that I’m missing something everyday. I need my crafty quiet time for myself, I need to know that I am able to create and am contributing and inspiring others too.

So, here goes, this is one of those rare chances that I can push myself, get myself up and running again with creativity.

Check out more detail about the camp feast here.

Oh and if you do join in and let them know that  I told you this, I get some points, do the same with your friends, so you’ll earn the extra points too! But above all, have fun!

I think I love this baby more…

than my own son! Just look at him, so adorable! So cute!!
Introducing little Elijah!

This bundle of joy belongs to Aunty J. I stole one of her photo (with her knowledge) and made this page. I fell in love with that chubby cheek and beautiful eyes. Then it is just nice for me to scrap this for a challenge over in Scrapbook Deals 4U. This is also a layout that I stop worrying about if I should use flowers or doily in a boy’s page. He is just too adorable for not having any flowers there!

I have given this layout to Auntie J on Wednesday and really.. I felt like keeping it instead..hehe.. just too cute!

By the way, I’m using the Thrift shop kit from SD4U. Those cute crochet doilies are from Sweet Vintage.

Happy weekend! Mine now the boys are cleaning the drain!! Without even needing me to ask them to do so and I won’t get them to do that either. It is just that Mer saw the next door maid do that and probably he thinks it is interesting and thus he started to clean our drain now. Hope they are not making a big mess out there.

It is true..

That your love for each other is unmeasurable!

And of course I love seeing them sharing a cup of soft-drinks. Of course I love that when they share, when they are not fighting, when they are having fun together, laughing and teasing each other.. But it always has to stop somewhere before they overdoing it.
The ribbon is actually the left over from the doily trim backing which I’ve tied up with twine and add some blings:

I love the sentence that says “We do not remember days, we remember moments” It is so true.

Love how everything just came together in this layout using Studio Calico kit, plus the challenge from Scrapbook Deals 4U.

Oh ya.. Auntie J has posted about a layout that I did for cute little Eli, will post about it later.

Happy scrapping!

Lady Gaga inpired

Yes, we are to do a layout base on Lady Gaga’s songs’ title or relics over in Scrapbook Deals 4U Summer Camp Rock challenge, which I’ve picked “Boys, boys, boys” as the title, though I don’t remember listening to this song in the radio. But it was fun doing a layout using that title plus all those misting. I’ve used 3 different colors mists here! Fun!
Here are some close-up:

I’m using Scrapbook Deals 4U June’s kit. Love those Pebble’s chipboard and stickers. They are just so cute! I wish I had more of them!
I just had to try on some dotted doodling for the dragon fly, to make it looks like it is flying up.
Happy weekend and happy scrapping you all!
Oh ya.. these photos were taken under low light at night.

Yong forever

I did a layout for the Summer Camp Rock in Scrapbook Deals 4U, but a bit too late to load it into the gallery before due time. Anyway, I am glad that I managed to do a layout base on the challenge, else I will not even scrap those photos. You can read about the challenge here.

Here is what I came up with using Basic Grey Kioshi Paper.

Photos were taken on 29 Dec, 2007 in China. Those cute crochet flowers are from Dear Lizzy line, aren’t they just cute!? I’ve bought more of such crochet flower from an Etsy Shop here.
I got this idea of using a frame for those crochet flowers from Piradee on this layout of her. Thanks Piradee!
To make the title pop up from the busy background, I’ve doodle around the letters to make them more prominent.

Now I’m off to solve the Scavenger Hunt over in Scrapbook Deals 4U.

Happy Scrapping!

Product used: Basic Grey Kioshi PP, letter stickers, ribbon doilies, K&Company die-cut stickers frames, AC Dear Lizzy crochet flowers, Pink Paislee Queen Bee bella brads, October Afternoon Trift Shop label stickers, Tim Holtz distressing ink and Doodlebug DesignIinc. pigment ink.

Camp Rock #1

Scrapbook Deals 4U is going into the second Summer Camp Rock Challenge now. While I’m putting a thinking hat on that one, let me just share with you what I’ve done for the challenge #1.
The layout must contain 3 things…

  1. One pic only….a photograph of YOU
  2. Your favorite color must be dominant followed by least favorite color. (you may use other colors but minimal)
  3. Your nickname.

Here is what I’ve done:

My favorite color is green and the one least favorite color is purple, which by the way, I’m wearing that color today..hmm.. Monday blue maybe *LOL* Actually I don’t have a least favorite color. It is just that purple to me is harder to scrap and it is harder to match with other color. As for my nickname, yup, Honey. I was being called that during  my senior high, ‘cos I was sitting with a bunch of guys who were ever so talkative and I was like being cornered. Somehow I get along well with them and they started to give me this nickname – Honey. Even till now, some of them still call me that. I kind of like it too, especially if hubby is the one who call me that *wink*.

I’m using Studio Calico kit plus some Prima and BoBunny flowers. My Fiskars border punch come into used and my Slice too. That little birdie is cut using Slice.

Well, what are you waiting for? If you haven’t join in the fun yet, head straight over to Scrapbook Deals 4U forum and get yourself registered for the camp rock.

Happy Monday you all!


My hardest work so far got two, one is to get my eldest son to eat his dinner, another one is to get him finish his daily homework from school! It was a dred for him! And such a frustrating thing for me too!

So, in this layout I’m actually questioning if he did really that serious about his homework. Seeing here is him doing his homework full heartedly, without even looking at the camera when I snap his photo. But in actual fact, he was frustrated for not being able to write faster and neater, not being able to play with the brother in the Kiddies Club. I wish homework is a bliss for him.

I made this layout for the crop challenge over at Scrapbook Deals 4U, using all Studio Calico kit, except the doily and trim are from my stash. This is a lift from Jenn’s layout:

Thanks for passing by and happy weekend!!

Boys will be boys

Here is another layout that get done during the Scrapbook Deals 4U crop recently:

The challenge is to use blue and yellow, rubons and someone else’s words.
In the photos were my boys busy with their own puzzles. Once again, those puzzles are kept inside the toys’ box now *sigh*. I wish their toys can sustained longer. Those PP are from Studio Calico kit and those rubons are from Scrapbook Deals 4U Urban kit.

Am using a sketch from Creating Keepsakes.

KristineD’s Sketch Challenge during the crop

Here is a layout that is done based on Kristine D’s sketch in Scrapbook Deals 4U:

Am using everything from the April’s kit – April shower from Scrapbook Deals 4U. Yes, I don’t care, I used the PP with flowers for my boys’ page. Who set the rules anyway? If the boys don’t like it, oh well.. they are most probably complaint about it when they are bigger, when those pages are already done! LOL!

Happy Tuesday!

Product used: Jack & Jill Quite Contrary Collection Papers (Scrapbook Deals 4U kit)

From the crop

I told you I’ve done 5 layouts during the recent crop in Scrapbook Deals 4U right? Yup, here is the first one that I’ve done:

The challenge is to use green to represent the great outdoor. I’m using all Basic Grey Origins again for this layout. The photo was taken awhile ago when my boys still crazy over Transformers. Now those two toys are being kept inside their toys’ box and have been forgotten. Well, maybe they’ll remember if there is some other kid come over to the house and play them, they sure will want to grab hold of them again.
I’m using a sketch from somewhere, if not mistaken, it should be from Creating Keepsakes.
Here, a close-up of the journal tag and clip:

I’m loving all those distressing look. Now I think I’m getting better with it by tearing off some of the edges from the paper and really inking them. That remind me to get more new ink as those ink are drying up now and I need some more adhesive, oh, and a new album! Gosh, so much to spend for now.
