Last one for Sketchabilities

Gosh, I miss scrapping!! It is more than a month since I packed away my stuffs but it feels like a long time! :) Can't wait to start scrapping again! Anyway, here is my last layout for Sketchabilities, Sketch #17. Here are pictures of Zareef doing his homework. I was experimenting with misting and masking. I love the result, but should have stick with brighter colors, so it will fit the pictures better.

I have to cut short my designer term due to my move. Thanks Karan for the opportunity, I enjoyed designing using your lovely sketches!

Hello from Melbourne!!

HELLO EVERYONE!!! We got ourselves settled in well here in Melbourne, Australia. It is such a lovely city and we are enjoying it. The weather is also really nice too!! Our new house is just nice for us, comfy and easy to maintain. The kids are doing quite well too.. they are happy and adjusted well to the new environment and weather.. No scrapping yet for me. Yet to find a scrapbook store nearby, and there is no scrapping corner for me yet. A lot of things to buy yet!

But here is a layout I did for Sketchabilities back when I was in Malaysia. Is it long due, as this is for May 15th reveal. These are pictures from our trip to Pangkor Island. Thanks for visiting and good day, mate! :))

Capture These Sketches #35 - Stunning

Hi ya'all... here is my last layout as Guest Designer for Lets Capture These Sketches. Thank you for having me as GD, and I really enjoyed joining up with other DTs to complete all the layouts for April. Here we have a lovely sketch by Ann. I scrapped this lovely picture of Zara looking stunning as ever. We were on our way to Pangkor when hubby took this picture.

p/s: have already packed all my scrapping goodies, so am not scrapping anymore.. at least for a while. Still have a couple of layouts for my DT assignments left to upload. Hopefully once I settled in my new place, I will scrap again :)))

SIL May challenge - PLAY

With great sadness, this is my last reveal for Scrap-It-Lah. With a heavy heart, I am stepping down as SIL design team, as I am moving to a new place soon. I am afraid that I won't have time to scrap while settling things down. Even now, I already packed up my scrappy stuffs, and I do missed scrapping a lot :(

Anyway, back to the challenge... This May we have another great sketch from Jessy. It is a multi photo sketch; so versatile that you can twist it to your likings. Here I scrapped our recent holiday photos from Pangkor. I love how Zareef and Zara being playful in front of the camera! I used Crate Paper's Boyfriend collection fun cutouts, which suit the pics perfectly.

And don't forget, winners for our April birthday bash challenges were announced on SIL site. Do check it out!!

Sketchabilities #15 - Cool in shades

Here is another layout for Sketchabilities, Sketch #15 by Karan. Unlike Zareef, Zara really love to pose to the camera, so she has lots of these face shots, which are perfect for multi-photos layout! Here she posed with her sunnies, cute as ever :) I am still de-stashing now, so it is harder now to find matching papers and embellies. On the other hand, it is good that I am forced to use papers I found hard to use before, such as this one from Basic Grey Indian Summer. The colors are rich and lovely, but I had a hard time putting them together in a layout. I hope you all like how this one turned out. TFL!

Capture These Sketches #34 - SAD

Hey.. sorry I have been busy (and lazy) to scrap lately, where I scrap only my assignments. My mojo is also is thinning lah! So here's another entry as a April Guest Designer for Lets Capture These Sketches. Lovin this simple sketch by Guylaine, and I am keeping the layout clean and simple too. Here is a picture of Zareef looking so sad. I don't remember exactly why, but I can guess that he was sad to be left behind. I love these chipboards from Crate Papers, as I've been using them again and again. Plus, I think the clouds with the raindrops suit the picture perfectly. TFL!!

Sketchabilities #14 - Smiles that shine

I am happy to share my first reveal as a Sketchabilities DT. Always enjoyed doing their sketches, and this one is no exception. Here are some pictures of Zara posing in front of the camera, making funny and sweet faces for us. Love these fun papers from My Little Shoebox, and thought they fit the pictures well. Do join in the challenge and hope to see your creations soon!!!

Sleepy head

Here is another layout for Lets Capture These Sketches, Sketch #32 by Allison Cope. As their guest designer for April, I received a die cut embellies pack from Kustom Die Kuts! I used their vine or leaves die-cut in this layout. Isn't nice? I scrapped these pictures of Zara falling to sleep. It is just so funny how she finally succumbed to her sleepiness. Most of the papers here is from Basic Grey Porcelain collection. Still has many papers left.. now I am de-stashing and not buying any new products.. not yet anyway.. *wink*..

So do hop on the site and join in the April sketches!!!!

Thank you!

WOW.. Even for 5 days, we got 11 wonderful entries for my embellies challenge!!! Thank you for all that participated. The winner will be announced towards the end of month. But don't stop now!!! We have another exciting challenge from another DT. Check it out at Scrap-It-Lah! Happy scrapping!!

Lets Capture These Sketches - Wonder boy

I have been invited to be April Guest Designer for Capture These Sketches. Remember my Sleepy, Silly and Happy challenges? Guess what? I won February's Snow White challenges grand prize!!! So, they asked me to join in their team for the month of April. How fun is that!

Here's my layout based on Calia's Sketch #31. Some cute photos of Zareef showing off his funky hairstyle, while smirking at the camera. I am misting again, this time I am playing with the title. I misted the alphas, then drew the outline myself. I kinda like how that turned out.. :)) Do check out the site and join in the sketches!!

And I am also glad that this layout won the random prize from March ARTastic challenge!! Yey, more goodies on the way... :)))
