Sweet Cherry

Hello hello! What is gloomy weekend here in Melbourne.. cold and rainy, perfect for staying home and scrap, right? I managed to whip one out amidst housework and entertaining the kids.

This layout is all about products. First challenge is from ScrapFIT Warm Up #32 challenge, which is to use bow or buttons. In my layout, I used both to compliment the canvas butterfly. The second one is also from ScrapFIT Workour #77 High Flying Flag challenge.

I also joined Frosted Design Doilies challenge. I used Doilies papers, rub ons and also cut outs of some. Finally, I used Sketchabilities Sketch #76 that is just perfect for this layout.

Some cherry picking photos from last summer. I am wayyy so behind on scrapping my photos. LOTS of nice photos but LESS time to scrap!! Again, taking photos with my iPhone. Suprisingly, it turned out not so bad...

That's it.. thanks for visiting, folks.

Touching Moments

Oh wow.. another long hiatus that I'm starting to think that my mojo is leaving me already. Busy busy busy (and lazy)!! I tried my luck today.. and here's what I come up with. I think Mr Mojo is gone cause this layout looks like a mess!

I joined Once Upon a Sketch CSI#4 September challenge. Quite fun combo of colors and rules and sketch! I also joined Bird is the Word "Touch" challenge.

Apologies for the poor quality of the pictures. Hubby is away and he brings the good camera with him! So I have to use my iPhone instead :(

Have a nice week ahead and thanks for visiting!

Reach for the sky

Hello everyone! Another hiatus for me :( I've been swarmed with activities over the weekends that I don't have much time for scrapping :((((

Anyway, here is a layout I managed to whip on Sunday. It's a very simple one, inspired by Bird is the Word "Reach" challenge. I joined Once Upon a Sketch season theme sketch for this one too. Here are pictures from our last NZ trip. Hubby super duper excited to see "Mount Doom" of LOTR.

I also link in Challenge Me Happy recipe challenge. Hope I don't miss anything from their long list of things! I am inspired also by Lawnscaping Challenge photo inspiration but I missed the deadline (big time!) but it is a nice picture.

Did you spy the origami? :) Thanks for visiting!! Even if I only update once in a while :)

Happy Birthday

Weekend was a blast. We enjoyed Moonshadow the musical, although the story doesn't makes sense! Cat Stevens music are really good though.

We had another birthday party today, this time it's Zara's best mate. We are close to the parents too, we stayed over to enjoy some BBQ lunch :) Too bad tomorrow is Monday, boohoo!! Anyway, here's a simple card I made for Zara's friend. I used Delightful Inspiration July card sketch for the card.

Let's hope for a good Monday tomorrow.. Thanks for visiting!

Weekend is here! Yeay!! Looking forward to watch a musical tomorrow :) I did this layout yesterday when I was baby-sitting sick Zareef for another day. It is inspired by Scrapping the Music "Freedom" challenge. I used some of the lyrics as the journaling, it is quite inspiring and kind of my words to Zara.

I also joined ScrapFIT Step Class #6 "The Negative Zone" challenge. I stamped out a couple of butterfly in the papers to get some negative zone effect. It wasn't that easy as if you messed up, there's no second chance! But it is a great way to use punchers, will keep this technique in mind for future :) I used Sketchabilities Sketch #74 for this layout. I strayed away from layering and keep it clean and simple for once :)

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for visiting!

Infinity & Beyond

Tummy bug, tummy bug.. go away! It's round two in da house, rounding back to Zareef :( Hope it stops with him now... (or I'll be next?!!) So, I stayed home to take care of him today. What else to do other than scrapping, right?

I did this layout inspired by Once Upon A Sketch "Friends" theme sketch. I scrapped this picture of hubby and our close friends having a blast in Gold Coast.

I joined Bird Is The Word "Beyond" challenge. I don't know why but Infinity & Beyond comes to mind (I am a Disney's fan after all) and it kinda fits the picture. I am also joining ScrapFIT long title challenge. I am not sure if my title is considered long, but oh well just for sharing anyway :)

Love how the scrunched layers looked :) Did you spy the hidden journaling? This is my first time doing hidden journaling... It's kind of cool when I don't want to "mess" the space with my messy handwriting LOL

Thanks for visiting!!

Birthday season?

Hello hello! I just got back from Zumba after more than a month absence.. Well, I'm super burned out but had lots of fun!

I don't usually do cards, but I do sometimes to give away for birthdays etc. This week I made 3 cards! I'm getting a hang of making cards, it is way quite easy and fun. The first one is for my hubby.. I always love these papers and I think gold suits him :) I used Got Sketch? #147 for this card.

Another card I made is for my son's best mate, Leto. His birthday is only one day after my hubby. I am inspired by The Lollipop Ladies Fantales challenge. Basic colours; red, blue yellow... perfect for a boy's card :) I used Frosted Designs Card Sketch #22 for this card.

Hope you enjoy the cards.. will save the other card for later.. :) Thanks so much for visiting!

Wild Ones

Hi everyone.. Weekend is ending.. :( We celebrated hubby's birthday on Saturday with a nice lunch and watched Disney on Ice (not his choice, just happened to fall on his birthday! LOL)

Anyway, I did a layout today. I totally abused the papers and tried to make it look a bit grunge to no success. I was inspired by Show Us Your Stuff July challenge, which is from a photo of an interesting typewriter. The paper I used matched the theme perfectly. I used PageMaps embellies sketch contest for this one (Check it out.. great prize!!)

I am also joining Scrap It With a Song "Wild Ones'. This picture is from our recent adventure to New Zealand, where we took the plunge into Lake Taupo. It was a crazily insane experience, one which I didn't regret at all!

Have a great week, everyone! Thanks so much for visiting...

I am... Styyyle!

Hello everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend :) I went to see the monster queen herself, Lady Gaga last night and it was crazily awesome!! I have newly found respect for her, and she is really inspirational. We had an awesome time!! Gaga Oh La La!!

I did another layout on Sunday (Yeay!) It was inspired by Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday circles challenge, which goes well with the July 1st Stuck? Sketch. Really, it's July already???? Where did half of the year gone?

This picture just reminded me of how Zareef always go around and saying "Styyylee", and walks around with gusto and style. Yeap, that's my Zareef! LOL!

Thanks for visiting!! :)

Colorful You

Hello everyone!!! It has been a while, isn't it?!!!! Finally after over a month hiatus, I created a layout last Sunday. Hope this will end my dry spell. Besides being busy with kids and housework, I was feeling super lazy too. People would think winter is the perfect time to scrap, but for me, winter means snuggling under blankets while watching movies!

Anyway, here is the layout I did. It was inspired Bird by the Word 'Color' challenge. (Oh, I found out I won BITW 'Look/See' challenge too!) I also joined ScrapFit Workout #70, which is to develop our own polaroid pictures. The sketch is from Sketchabilities Sketch #73.

This Echo Park papers are just gorgeous!!!!!!!! Have a great week ahead!!
