ABC 123

Bebi A was 3 months old here. I can't believe that in 7 days, she will be 4 years old. She continues to be our sunshine, the one who always wakes up with a smile, who makes us laugh with her funny antics, who dances when we ask her to, who likes to follow Dawter T around.

This Ikea frame was altered using Scrap Within Reach Emerson and Elliot lines. The little girl is from Maya Road, and the Jack in the Box was made by moi (don't you just love him? Hehehe...) The balloons were traced from my Dew Drops ink hehehe, the super cute chipboard alphas are from Scrap Within Reach.

The eyes of both the clowns and the little girl are from Doodlebug stickers. I always try to use even the sticker negatives. The little girl's eyes are from the letter the W (the in between hehehe) then I just used my black pen to make the eyes. Dawter T laughed at my doodle, being the high and mighty that she is when it comes to drawing. She wanted me to draw eyelashes and stuff but told her that's the best that I can do and I will stop there in case I make a booboo I will later regret. Hehe.

I am very happy with this frame. And, this will be placed besides all our other frames on top of our computer table. My next project is for Dawter T, she wants a princess themed frame.

Materials Used :

Scrap Within Reach Emerson Dress Up

Scrap Within Reach Elliot Sandbox
Scrap Within Reach Emerson Chipboard Alphas
Maya Road Girls Keychain Set - Girl

Tres Marias

This is for Scrapbook Challenges' Sketch 149. Until now, I am a bit wary of the white space, it feels unfinished. Hmmm, maybe I am too stressed. I am currently in a middle of an H1N1 nightmare. As of this writing, we're waiting for MOH to call us if Ate A's swab test is negative. My office is also hounding me for the result. Wahhh...

An Everyday Kind of Wonderful

I love this layout. I love the combination of colors and papers. I actually combined papers from 2 different collections of SWR. I know that paper tearing is what I always use nowadays but it just fits the paper, don't you think?

And these pictures of Dawter T are one of my treasured ones. We were at Sentosa, watching the Dolphin show and Pre managed to get these pictures. How I wish that Pre would take up photography again!

I used Pamela's Sketch 148 for this layout. Do check out the other DT's take on the sketch!

Other challenges at SC this week are Jen's Dots and Stripes and a digi challenge from Brynn.

Materials Used :

Scrap Within Reach Afternoon Tea Chantilly Cream, Scrap Within Reach Afternoon Tea Spiced Plum, Scrap Within Reach Elliot Buckwheat, Scrap Within Reach The Cottage Whimsical, Scrap Within Reach Afternoon Tea Ribbons, My Mind's Eye Laundry Line Sundress "Life" Title, Prima flowers

Stop, Look, Listen ~ Daddy

With Father's Day coming, we want to surprise Pre with a brand new car. But, since we cannot afford it right now, I just created a post card for him with a convertible that's moving. How did I make it move? Underneath that car are 4 5 cents coins.

I've been missing in action because for the past week, I've been a Mommy In Action. Mommy, to the point, my daughters are calling me mean. And, they've been longing for the day when their nanny will comes back from her vacation!

I've been exercising my mommy rights, asking them to clean up, and teaching them household chores.

Oh well... Hahaha...

I always tell my eldest that I am teaching them to be responsible and not to be bratty.

It is just so hard when you're also online supporting problems at work.

What to do, what to do? I work hard for the money...

Color Your World

It's the first monday of the month and it's time for another Photoshop technique challenge at Scrapbook Challenges.

This month's technique is color masking.

Here's my sample layout :

This is a layout of my favorite couple. This is my aunt and uncle who celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary last May 24.


This is my take for Sun, Sand, Sea challenge at {Create}. Please dive in with us at {Create} and find an awesome album under the sea! Ooops read as, RAK prize is an awesome album! Hihihi...

I personally love this layout. I wanted to put MV before the princesses but found out from hubby that it stands for Mass Vessel. Hehehe...
