Feeling Groovy

Hello peeps! I am SO sleepy that I can sleep now, but it's only 7pm! Plus it was freezin this morning. Winter is really here! I forget how cold it can be here..

Anyways, here is another layout I did at Lynda's house. We are doing the same Scrap it With a Song "Feeling Groovy" challenge. Check out her version, it is very very fun! Here I scrap this awesome photo of Zareef with his groove all out :) The background papers are really unique and pretty, although I had a hard time trying to layer other papers with it. In the end, the paper needs to stand on its own, and Creative Scrappers Sketch #205 is perfect for this layout!

Have a great week ahead and thank you SO SO much for visiting!

I can see you!

Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I had a fun and productive day with my mate Lynda. We had a crop party at her house. Yes only two of us and Zara but it was still a party! I managed to create a couple of layout and Lynda was always a great host :)

One of the layout is inspired by Bird is the Word "Look/See" challenge. I love this picture of Zara, so cute! Again, thanks to my hubby for the excellent photos. Don't forget to hop on his photo blog @ Zu Photo. I joined Stuck? April 15th sketch, which is perfect for the photo and this beautiful My Mind's Eye paper. The paper is really beautiful as it is, so I didn't have to do much!

I almost forgot, I am honored to be featured at as Warm-Up FITgirl Spotlight over at ScrapFIT. Thanks for having me there! Hop over if you want to see more about silly ol me.. :) Thanks again for visiting.. Tomorrow is a brand new week.. have a great one!

Make A Wish

Happy Anzac Day! Honestly I don't know much on what the day means, besides that it's a public holiday. My kids are educating us on what it means. Any Aussies out there that can educate me further, please feel free to do so... :)

SO, I spent the whole free day relaxing at home. Well, we did come cleaning the house in the morning. One good thing I just found out is that Zareef actually enjoyed mopping the floor!!! He mopped the whole house today. Great job, Zareef! ;)

I got a lot of comments complimenting the photos that I used to scrap. I can't take the credits because those awesome pictures are taken by my hubby. He picked up photography about 2 years ago, so that I can have cool and nice pictures to scrap. He just started a photo blog, Zu Photos. Please drop by if you like the photos that I scrapped ;) He improved a lot and the photos he took are getting better by day.. not to mention his lense collection.. LOL

I managed to whip a layout out today. It is inspired by From Screen 2 Scrap Ever After challenge. The criteria is to use bling, fairy tale title and journaling. I chose these pictures of Zara's birthday cupcakes that I made for her 4th birthday. She is totally 100% princess, and I just wish her the best in life :) I used Let's Capture These Sketches Sketch #129 for this one. It is just perfect for the layout..

It's great to have a mid-week break, only now I feel like it's Saturday and tomorrow is Sunday! Thanks so much for visiting.. :)

Adele fever

How's your Monday so far? It was a s***ty Monday for me. Things didn't seem to work well in the office that I feel like I want to throw the PC out of the window! One of the days, huh?

ANYWAYS, here is a simple layout I created inspired by Scrapping the Music challenge. It is Adele fever! I watched her concert at Royal Albert Hall (only in TV unfortunately) and WOW what a voice and performer! I almost cried during Someone Like You... Watching her singing full of emotions and tears during the song was just so moving..

I just love all her songs! I can literally listen to her songs the whole day. This is a favorite too, can you guess already? It's Rolling in the Deep.. this song is full of energy and anger. These pictures of Zareef seems fitting for the lyrics I chose, don't you think?

The layout honored ScrapFIT Workout #66 inspiration photo & colors. The colors are sand, mint and cherry. Interesting combo! I used Sketchabilities Sketch #69 for this layout.

Thanks so much for visiting.. All your comments are always appreciated :)

Beautiful Day

Hey hey hey.. How's your Monday? The highlight of my day was when we danced through Glee's "We can't stop the beat" in Zumba today! Exactly like in the show, so that was fun :)

Here is another layout I want to share. Somehow this layout was inspired by multiple challenge. First being Frosted Designs 'Weather' challenge. Also for Scrap It With a Song "Beautiful Day" by U2.. Love that song.. :) These pictures are from our New Zealand trip at Pakiri Beach. The weather was picture perfect that evening and we had lots of fun with these shots :D

The colors of the layout were inspired by Challenge Me Happy poster challenge. Just love the bright pastel colors in the photos; and pink and turquoise are just perfect together. I also join ScrapFIT weekend warm-up #26 challenge, which is to scrap at least 4 photos. And lastly, I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #203 for inspiration ;)

At least Monday is over, right? Have a good week, guys! And thanks for visiting...

Cuppa @ Ruapehu

It's almost Friday, Yippieeee!!! Today's layout is inspired from ARTastic food theme challenge, scrapping a picture from our New Zealand trip last summer. We were having brunch on top of Mt Ruapehu, the highest cafe in North Island (or New Zealand?). Hubby took this lovely picture of our cuppa.. lovely lovely day that was...

I used Let's Capture These Sketches Sketch #127 for this layout. Love the simplicity of this sketch, which inspired me to keep this layout simple and clean. I had fun playing with bubble wrap, stamping and doodling for this one. It kinda reminded me of high school. Plus, it was a quickie too :)

Thanks for visiting.. :)

HOME is where you are

Hola! Yeah.. back to work tomorrow.. in the freezin morning. How come I feel like it's winter already? So, I was busy retail therapying today.. trying to find some boots and winter stuffs. How hard is it to find the perfect boot? I didn't find one that fits me! They are all to big for my skinny calf.. :( Better luck next time!

OK.. back to important stuffs.. I really like how this layout turned out. It's for Once Upon a Sketch Home theme challenge. I scrapped this cool picture of us. It is true, home is where my hubby and family are. Back from Malaysia to USA to Malaysia again then here now in Australia, I always believe home is where they are :)

Plus it is fitting to join Scrapbookers Anonymous again... Love the map paper, it kinda ties everything together.. the colors and also the story of how we moved around but are always "home"... Gosh, sorry about the cheesiness.. hehehe

Looking forward already to the weekend! :) Thanks for visiting

The Future is Yours

How can 4 days of holidays passed so quick? Luckily, my company always give Easter Tuesday off every year. Yeay! So I have in mind of spending time alone... shopping! :)

Anyway, we had a very relaxing long weekend. Met some friends, a couple of play dates for the kids and a watched The Lorax. Plus I managed to catch up with some scrapping. For this one, I am honored to be the Guest Designer for Bird is the Word "Future" challenge.

I scrapped this picture of Zareef showing off in the play ground. I didn't intend the splatter to be that messy, but Zareef kicked it while it was drying. Yeah, the future is his, indeed! I also wanna join Scrapbookers Anonymous "Map" challenge. Lovely background paper that is!

La la la.. good night! :)

Don't mess with me!

Happy Easter, everyone! We are blissfully enjoying our long weekend :)  Hope you are enjoying your holidays as well...

Here is a layout I did yesterday, inspired by ScrapFIT Workout #65 challenge. The photo inspiration is very masculine, and I immediately know that I have to scrap this picture. At first, Zareef's look just shout "Don't mess with me!" but after I added the mustache, he looks funny and the title is like a joke now. Haha.. Doesn't matter, Zareef really likes the mustache on his face :D

I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #202 for this layout..

It's a bit sad that a lot of challenge blogs I've been following are closing down soon; Get Picky, Scrapbookers Anonymous, Twisted Sketches.. I need to find more blogs to follow! Let me know if there are any good challenge blogs out there, will ya? :)

Happy Easter Sunday everyone, :))))

Such a Charmer

Hello everyone! I feel like I've abandoned the site for a long time. Since the kids started ballet and soccer, our Saturday mornings are busy. With housework, laundry, ironing, yadda yadda.. I barely have time to scrap. SO, I am SO glad that it is now school holiday here in Victoria!!! Hip, Hip, Hooray!!! Usually I don't like school holiday as everywhere will be crowded, but now it means free weekends!!! And 5 (yes, 5 for us!!!) days weekend is coming up in Friday.

OK, I am already looking forward for Easter Friday. Plus, I managed to whipped this layout out. It is inspired by Bird is The Word Charm challenge. I used Let's Capture the Sketches Sketch #126 for this layout. Here are pictures of Zara being a charmer at Brighton Beach :) Hope you enjoy it!

Have a great week ahead.. Look out for a GD reveal from me soon! ;) And oh, this layout won Get Picky inspiration challenge.. Thanks, guys!
