Hey guys.. I am loving this gorgeous weather... I am so glad I am not arriving in the office in the dark anymore.. There's daylight and the birds are chirping.. Yeyy, Spring is here! Anyway, here is another layout I did on Sunday. This one is a really really simple one.. So simple that I completed this in less than half an hour!

This layout is inspired by StuckOnUsSketches sketch. I used mainly these lovely Crate Papers chipboards to decorate this layout. I told you it's super simple! As for the title, manja means.. wait,  I can't think of one English word for it! It literally means attached to or being a 'baby'.. If you can describe it better please do help!!!

Off to Perth again tomorrow... hope the weather there is as nice as in Melbourne! See ya!

LOVE is all we need

What a gorgeous weekend it had been! Spring is here I think, just lovely weather.. sunny and warm! We spent the weekend relaxing in the park and just enjoying the sun. Anyway, I mentioned before that after more than a year waiting, I finally got an office room by myself, with a gorgeous view! I posted this on my facebook, but here is what I see everyday from my office now.. :)

I managed to scrap a couple of layout today, and here is one of them. This layout is inspired by Bird is the Word LOVE challenge. It is also inspired by Once Upon A Sketch challenge. The journalling criteria this time is to include at least 2 sentences of our favorite songs.

Naturally I scrap this awesome song 'Not Alone' by Darren Criss again. The song represent a lot of things but LOVE is the major theme of the song. Here's the whole chorus, which didn't fit in the journaling tag:

Baby, you're not alone
Cause you're here with me
and nothing's ever gonna bring us down 
Cause nothing can keep me from lovin you
and you know it's true
it don't matter what come to be
Our love is all we need to make it through

LOVE is freaking all we need to make it through.. I sincerely hope that Zareef and Zara realized that they have each other and they can get through everything together.. So there, enough of my sappiness.. hope you all like the layout.. :)

 As much as I love purple, I seldom used it in my layout... probably due to limited purple stash.. so I am very happy with this one.. :)

Thanks again for visiting.. Hope you have a great week ahead.. Huzzah!!

Another layout to share today.. This layout is inspired by ARTastic August challenge. This month painting is The Playing Claude Renior by Auguste Renoir. The criteria for the challenge is to include ribbon, a photo of a child or a child playing, and some paint or create your own background. I used Sketchy Thursday Sketch 8.11 for this one....

The splash of paint didn't come out as I like, but splatters are splatters..  you can't control them! It looks like blood! haha.. But I like the contrast against the bright yellow.. and hope you all like it...

Please Mr Sunshine come out again! :) Thanks for visiting!

My Belle

Wednesday already.. seriously??  Time flies, really! I want to share a layout inspired by Scrap The Girls August challenge, where we must include this quote as a title or journaling:

Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it. ~Harold Hulbert

I am also inspired by Get Picky July Inspiration Challenge #10. Oh love those butterflies! I can't believe I have almost the exact butterflies stickers as in the photo! I'm glad I finally get to use them.. :) I used Sketchabilities #52 for this layout.
