Finally, it's done and I can move on. Haha! It took time to cut all those 6 petal flowers, glue and curl them. But, I loved it! Though I was a bit frustrated that after adhering all those flowers, my creative juice stopped flowing. I will probably take another shot during daylight because the light didn't do justice to my lovely flowers, hehehe. I just had to post this tonight so that I can relax and that this won't be hanging on my head. I consider this as one of my LOs which took TIME to finish. It took more than SEVEN days. And seeing this before I sleep and after I wake up can be quite frustrating.

So, ok, I am rambling. Happy Saturday! One more day and it's back to the grind!

Have You Ever Had Those Days?

When you can't seem to put together a decent layout. The basics are there. But, it's not clicking. Something's wrong but you don't know what it is and I don't know what to add, what to remove haha Oh well. I am getting impatient. I don't want to just finish it coz I've put too much effort hahaha (you'll know why once I have posted it)

Usually, the times that I can't seem to finish are the times when I am stingy, when I don't to cut my papers, when I don't want to use new embellishments. Haha!

I hope I can finish it soon. As in tonight. It's my entry here. And I want to start with something new. Coz you see, I am the type who can't start a new layout unless I finish the one I am doing. Sad. Haha.

Classes And Sketch 201

{sorry for the grainy photos}

Thursday night, my dear cousin B came. The goal is to attend classes. We managed to book two classes, one at Papermarket, the other at Laines. Both classes were great! Learned techniques and it was fun rushing albums for 3 hours. Haha. Cousin B, I miss you already! It was so much fun going to these classes with you! Hopefully we can go to our dream class! Ha!

We managed to get a good number of freebies at our class at Laines, mostly Melody Ross goodies and they also gave us cute little Glossy Accents, promise, it's so cute! The packaging is like the one of Stickles.

It's fun going to classes. I wish to go to another one on June. Hubby asked why though. Hmp!

And, here's Sketch 201 at Scrapbook Challenges. Sad to say with all the classes and food that my cousins and I pigged out on, I didn't have time to create a layout out of this sketch. But, I will try this week! Definitely! The sketch has so many possibilities!

"Inspired" ME

What's the "bestest" thing to happen for a Webster Pages addict like me?

To have my WP layout "LOVE" featured at their gallery! Woohoo! This is the second time for me and I am really --- beyond thrilled! It sure made my flu go away for a bit and post this! Haha. The medicinal benefits of scrapbooking glory!

Thank you, Webster Pages! I {Heart} You very much!

Happy Mother's Day!

I love this day! :D Got to spend it with my sweets. Thank you for the paper roses which was inside a used Yakult (my eldest told me that the Yakult was to be used as pencil holder!). Two cards from my youngest, one in English, another one in Mandarin! Life is sooo good (despite the drama!) Hahaha!

The Reason Why I Love Being A MOM :D

Because It Feels So Good To PUSH.

When it's almost the finish line and the process was excruciatingly painful, all you want to do is push yourself for a few more steps. It's the same thing with labor, when they ask you to push and the baby's head has come out, it's the greatest feeling EVER! I did it twice. Two different experiences. Both times, I love it! I love becoming a MOM.

Seriously, it's not just about the push hehehe It's everything. When you're not yet home, somebody misses you and will keep calling you until you tell them that you're already at the lift lobby. And, when you're home and they are in the mood, somebody will ask for hugs and kisses to have a good night sleep. It's the little things that make it all worthwhile.

My girls bring me so much happiness. Though there are times they drive me insane. Haha. But, they are our life. They are my ALL.

It's About Time

I first saw altered clocks when I was looking for Christening souvenirs for my youngest daughter. I thought it was hard to alter one. 3 years after, I've decided to conquer my fear when I saw a 3 dollar wall clock at Ikea (that's in Singapore dollars) so I thought it won't be too painful if I mess up the clock, it would then make a good frame. Hehe.

Was I surprise on how easy it was! (well, after getting over the fear of removing the clock hands *wink*) But I promise, it doesn't take long to take it apart. It took me more time to look for the patterned paper that would go well with my photo! Hehe.

This a great gift to your friends and family. And, very economical too!
