Brave boy – Creative Scrappers

One Saturday, I had some time with this little boy after meeting his mom in giving her a mini album. When I offer to took him for a ride, he quickly grab his hat and hanky and without any hesitation, wanted to follow me, doesn’t even need his parent to be around! Isn’t it such a cutie?
I managed to snap a few shots with him in the car while on the way to pick up my two sons from art class. I know.. I may be the one who spoil the photos *LOL*
I’m using Studio Calico kit down till those small note card that came along the kit! Yes, that puppy is actually a note card saying who’s packed the kit. It was Joy who did the packing, so I’ve used it and convert it into a tag with the word “Joy ride”, isn’t it great! I amazed myself sometimes *LOL*
I’ve pop up those small embellishment to make them more dimensional and I’m loving the effect, look at this cute camera.
This page is done using CS sketch #114.

Peep, happy weekend! I know I will.

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!

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!


Hmm.. this photo looks over expose ‘cos I took it outside right under the sun. Hmm… still lots to learn about photography. Anyway, this layout is using Studio Calico’s sketch and kit. As for the color inspiration is from Color Room Palette 7.

The word wonder is die-cut using Slice basic element card #1. 
Those butterflies are cut using Martha Stewart’s punches.

As for the photo, it was taken one evening.
We are having a long weekend holiday here starting from today till next week Tuesday!
Happy holiday for us here!  Yippie!!


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.

Sweet chubby you

Love those sketches over at Creative Scrappers, what more I can use it together with my Studio Calico kit!

Here is one that I have done using CS sketch
Here is a close-up of the flower that I did plus crochet flower from Dear Lizzy line:

Yes, I do miss his chubby face when he was still little, he has lost all those baby fat now and in fact a bit too skinny to me. When I look at him, I just thought to myself, hey you grow so much and too fast! I wish I can still see your chubby face.

Product used: Studio Calico Joyland kit.

The truth

Yes, sometimes a picture doesn’t tell the true story behind, it needs journaling, it need the story itself to be written. There goes for these pictures of my boys with their breakfast. They didn’t really finish off their American Breakfast of eggs, sausages, bake beans and toast. I was the one helping them with those eggs. This was during Easter morning.
I wanted to make this page as something from the news, some truth of it, thus I cut and tear out a peeping window from my cardstock and put those photos in the peeping window with lots of distressing. It took me quite some times to finish off this page, ‘cos it was very blunt initially without the doiley flower and the journaling strip.
I love how it turns out. I have even changed my mind to move those fancy photo corner cut-out from the Slice.
Product used: Studio Calico kit, Maya Road journal line stamp, Prima swirl stamp, Slice design element.

Sweet spring

Using Dear Lizzy line from American Craft plus some other PP from Studio Calico kit and a sketch from Pencil Lines to create this layout.

Those crochet flowers are just so cute, aren’t they? Here, first time ever to use pin as part of the embellishment, I hope they don’t rusk on my page.

The Studio Calico kit comes with a mini cherry stamp which I’ve used here.

This is also another photo that taken during Chinese New Year.
Thanks for dropping and happy scrapping!
