Snow Play

In the spirit of Chrismas, I created a layout with Christmas theme.Well, at least I tried too! I have to use the Nook's Christmas kit after all, right? These winter pictures are half a year late, but the kit is perfect for these pictures. Here are some pictures of Zareef playing with snow at Lake Mountain, VIC. Fun fun day, it was actually his birthday! :) I use Sketchabilities Sketch for this one, and what a fun and unique sketch! I had fun doing this a lot!

So, what's your plan for New Year's Eve? Hope you have something fun planned ;) Thanks for visiting!

Wonder Kids!

Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you had a great Christmas and holidays. I still can't get use of Christmas in summer! It's just not.. Christmassy enough if you get what I mean. Plus, there are barely any decorations around the city.. it's weird! Anyway, I had a lovely Christmas. We don't really celebrate Christmas but our lovely neighbors are kind enough to invite us to share their Christmas lunch.

I am enjoying my day offs at home with the kids. This is my first ever break, staying home doing nothing! haha.. So after all the chaos of Christmas, I finally get to catch up on my scrapping. I am barely keeping up with the kits that keep arriving! haha

This layout is inspired by Bird is the Word 'Wonder' challenge. Here is a picture of me and the kids, being silly during my birthday night. They are really really cheeky in front of cameras! I used Stuck On U Sketches for this layout.

Thanks for visiting! Hope you have a fabulous New Year!

It's a Boy!

Howwa you wonderful readers? I had a pretty good day today, enjoying the cool Melbourne summer. :) I made this brag book for my friend that is expecting a baby soon. It's a simple three fold album with a pocket to hide some notes. It is a really simple one and I hope she likes it :))


Have a good one, ya'all... now it's time for Glee's Extradiornary Christmas! ;)

Girly Girl!

Hello everyone! We had a busy, but great weekend. Even the kids were tired! :) Plus Zara has 3 "accidents" over the weekend! Oh well, hopefully she will not have them anymore soon!

I am glad I managed to whip this one out. I used Sketchy Thursdays Sketch 12.8 for this layout. This layout is inspired by Get Picky Challenge #14, where it focuses on the story, story, story!

Here are some pictures of Zara posing gleefully.. looking pretty and cute. She is really a girly girl; she just loves dressing up, looking cute and pretty. She has been picking her own clothes since she was 2!

Hope ya'all have a great week ahead.. Thanks so much for visiting! :)

Tarzan Fun!

Heyyaaa! I am still tired from my longgg day trip to Brisbane yesterday. I didn't get to see much of Brisbane as I was stucked in a core warehouse the whole day. But looking at real rocks for a change was totally worth the trip!

This layout was completed a few weeks ago and I have forgotten which sketch I used for this one.. *sorry* Here is a picture of Zareef with his preppy buddies during their Cabaret performance this  year. They did George of the Jungle, and they were so cute. On a second thought, Zareef is really totally exactly like George!!! Without a doubt.. ha ha

Thanks again for visiting ladies! Ta!

I Trust You

Not that I think anyone would notices, but I have not updated this blog for a while. I have been quite busy since returning from Houston. My mom is back in Malaysia, so I am back to being a soccermom. It is not as bad as I thought, and I am adjusting to our new routines. Weekends are always packed with something to do, with the weather getting better and warmer (not this weekend, it's gloomy and rainy!)

So, I am happy to get some scrapping done this weekend. This layout is based on Bird is the Word "Trust" challenge. I just love this picture of the kids, a moment of tenderness that is honestly quite rare! I use Sketchabilities Sketch #60 for this layout.

Have a great week ahead! Another busy one for me! :|

Hello everyone.. I had a fantastic time at Zhumba today.. The instructor barely stopped and we danced to 14 songs today! It was a great workout and I can still feel my body burning now, almost 2 hours after! Now I am ready to doze off... But before that, let me share another layout...

A simple layout of my kids again.. I made it for a challenge but didn't realized it was closed already. I really love this Nook Oct kit!! Rich elegant colors; black, white and gold.. It's totally different for sure.. :) I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #180 for this layout..

OK - off to slumberland now..

6 years old already?

Hello hello! I think I left my mojo back in USA as it was really hard for me to scrap anything today.. it just won't flow! I managed to finish this layout, which I started right before my Houston trip. I rarely ever not finish a layout in one sitting, but I couldn't care less at the time as I was all ready for Houston :) (and all the other adventures.. hehe) Even adding a title and journaling is hard for me to do today.. Oh well, mojo.. come back to me!

But here is the layout.. I feel this layout is not right somehow but I don't know what.. These are some photos from Zareef's 6th birthday party at McD Chadstone. OMG, I still can't believe he's 6yo!!! Where did all the time goes???

Tomorrow's Monday.. bummer... Hope ya'all have a great one..

To Have a HOME...

I am finally home, guys!!! After an adventurous trip to the land of US of A, I am finally home. I was one of the unlucky ones who got stranded in LA, thanks to Qantas. We are merely minutes away from takeoff, all passenger settled in, when the announcement was made to ground all flights and we had to disembark the plane. It was about 2am when we got ourselves a hotel room!! Not so happy with Alan Joyce, such a disgrace!!!

I spent 2 nights in LA before I managed to get myself a ticket home through Korea Air instead. It was a 24 hours flight, where it should only be 14 hours with Qantas. So yeah, I am still recovering from that long journey. One upside is that I managed to see more of the glamorous LA.. It was fun, and if I stay longer, I might like the city :) The weather was perfect too.

It seems fitting then to reveal this layout I did almost a month ago. I am honored to be chosen as From Screen 2 Scrap Movie Extra for November. The movie this month is "Home for the Holidays" and the criteria is to journal with a white pen, use HOME in the title and use a photo of a family gathering. So I scrap this photo of us during last Eid celebration. Love this quote from a musical I know, this must be how it feels to have a home. Yup, so glad I am HOME!

Oh man, back to office tomorrow. It feels like I was on a 3 weeks holiday! A shopping spree holiday it was! haha.. Anyway, glad to be back and hope to scrap more soon :)
