Up, up and away!

Happy Saturday to everyone. What a beautiful day today!!!!! Gorgeous sunny winter day here in Melbourne :)))) I almost forgotten to share this with you guys. I did this layout last weekend, and I thought I have nothing left to upload.. But here it is..

This one is inspired by From Screen 2 Scrap June challenge. Their challenge this time is based on the Disney movie UP. Oh I <3 LOVE <3 that movie!! It's one of Disney/Pixar movie that is more emotional :)) Beautifully done! The criteria is to include clouds, hot balloons/balloons and 3D embellishments.

I used a sketch from Once Upon A Sketch June 15th challenge. The journalling theme is 'a moment in time', which is to include at least 4 sentences on why the photos are memorable.. :)

I used Kaiserkraf collections for this one.. love the colors.. :))

My journalling.. :)

We have a playdate with Zareef's pre-school friends in half an hour! It's like a reunion since all of them go to different schools now. Thanks again for visiting! Have a great weekend!

Oh My Gaga!!!

Yeapp... It's Gaga Time at Scrap It With A Song!!! This week we have Poker Face as our song. I found it difficult at first to scrap this. Who are we kidding, it's Lady Gaga!! I read the lyrics over and over again, and browsing my picture collections over and over again to find something that suit the song!! Family pictures are hardly sexy, I think! Haha

At last I settled on this one line from the song "Check this hand, cause I am marvellous" Ahhh I can work this one.. So here's a picture of my cool and marvellous hubby, with an awesome poker hand, don't you think? haha..

I toned down with the colors for this one (no bright colors this time!).. I used Kaiserkraft papers for this one.. love the soothing colors.. Overall love how this turned out.. yeah, after almost breaking my brain to figure this one :))))) Come and join us, I am sure you will have fun scrapping Lady Gaga!!!

Have fun with Lady Gaga and thanks for visiting!

All That I Need

Hey peeps... hope you had a great weekend.. We just had Zareef's 6th birthday party today and it was totally awesome!! I made the right choice to have it at ever realiable McDonalds cause I don't have to do anything, which is awesome! The kids had lots of fun and thank god I didn't have the party in my house as the kids will surely bring it down to pieces! :) My heart warmed to know that Zareef has lots of friends that adore him now.. Surely so much different than when we arrived here a year ago.. just 4 of us celebrating with a slice of cake and no friends yet.. Happy Birthday Zareef Boy!!

OK.. enough rambling :) Here's a layout I did today... This one is for Scrap-It-Lah June challenge, which is to scrap of things we can't do without.. So obviously I can't live without my family :) The journaling may be a bit cheesy as I am bad with words but I meant what I wrote.. :)))))

This layout is inspired by Creative Scrappers Sketch#160. Love how unique this sketch is.. I also joined Candy Shoppe Designs 2nd June challenge, which is to scrap summer pictures! This picture is from our Tasmania trip.. Such great moments.. love our holiday there.. I think we need more holiday!!!

Thanks again for visiting.. Don't forget to join with me in Sketchabilities and also Scrap It With A Song challenges.. :))

Sketchabilities #49 - 1,2,3 JUMP!

Hello everyone! It's time for another Sketchabilities reveal... Here's Sketch #49.. love this one!!! I scrapped pictures of us at Manly Beach, Sydney. If you don't know already, we love to take jumping shots. The kids know the drill already, and they know when to jump.. Nevertheless, it is still hard to get the perfect shot with EVERYONE in the air! So here is us trying to get 'the' shot..

Used Nook May kit for this one.. love the brightness of the papers.. I want the PP to mimic the pictures.. at least try to.. :) So come and join us.. looking forward to see what you'll come up with the sketch.. :)

Ok everyone.. it's now for more YouTubing and more swooning.. :) But before that don't forget to join Scrap It With a Song too.. we have "Grease- We Go Together" this time!

Fun Faces

Ahhhhh gotta love long weekend!!! Thank you O Queen.. :) Too bad that it's almost over... However, we celebrated Zareef's birthday at Lake Mountain.. what a lovely day, not too cold and sunny.. so it was not terribly miserably cold playing with snow.. The kids surely had fun that they couldn't stop stating how much fun they had even after arriving at home.

So, 3 days weekend but I didn't get the chance to scrap much.. I managed to whip 2 layouts today.. and here is one of them.. A simple one really, was a bit lost when starting this.. initially started this for something else, but ended up something different. Oh well, that happens, right?

Here are pictures of Zareef and Zara making funny faces in our motorhome in Tassie. What a way to kill time, huh? Glad that they enjoyed the motorhome :) I used Nook June kit.. gotta love this one too, although I wish they included more stickers! Did some misting and splattering in this one too :)

Yeay Lynda... I finally use your handmade flower... It fits perfectly here.. Thanks again, dearie!!!

So sorry if I've been neglecting some of you... promise to visit ya'all soon.. been distracted lately :)) Have a great week! :))

Sweeeeet Dollies

Sunday almost over.. (bummer!) But I had a great day scrapping with Lynda today. We should do it more often yeah, girl! This is one of the layouts I did with her this morning... This one was inspired by These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things challenge, which is to scrap about favorite childhood toys! This is Zara with a few of her fave dolls.. a 'Rosie' and a 'Baby'.. LOL

Also playing along with Scrap The Girls color challenge.. super excited about this one because it's pink and pink and B&W!! :) The layout was also inspired by Butterfly Crafts poster challenge.. The poster is pink and full of dolls.. perfects! I used Sketchy Thursdays great sketch 6.2 for this one.

Still lovin these Crate Papers!

and these Prima flowers.. and bling-blings.. :)

Hope you have a great week ahead.. hope the weather will be as nice as last week!
