Life Is Sweet

I was privileged to be asked by one of my scrap idols and friend, Pamela, to create a layout based on my thoughts about one age or another. It was published in one of the leading E-Zines, Scrapstreet.Com last July. Thank you so much, Pamela for the chance!

I thought long and hard. Sorry for the photo, it's a photo I use everywhere. But, it coincided with the age I wanted to scrap about --- when I was 33.

A lot of things happened when I was 33 --- new home, new job, new country to see, etc...


I will always remember that year, when I was 33.

It was that year when everything fell into place.
A wonderful family life with a loving husband and two happy daughters.
We've secured a home loan and moved to our own home.
A career that took a turn for the better when I joined NI.
A business trip to the USA. It was a dream come true to finally go there.
Went to Austin for work, Orlando and San Francisco to meet up with family and friends.
Finally got to see Disneyworld!
Got in to 3 Scrapbook Design Teams.

I will always remember that year, when I was 33.
When my dreams came true.
When I felt all things were possible.
If you fervently wish, when you pray hard.
When life's tough, I will remember that year, when I was 33.

Tips and Tricks :

Tore and rolled the patterned paper to give dimension on the page. Dipped a stick in TA Glimmer Mist then used that to ink the edge of the torn papers.
