Rainy Days and Tuesdays

It's the last day of November. Tomorrow should be fun, the start of December Daily! Yipee!!! And I have only finished my cover!

Been so busy these past week, worked late, worked during the weekend and crammed 2 server upgrades yesterday before my colleagues in the US come back to work. Whew!

Was not able to sleep well, kept thinking about work... Woke up thinking about work... And took me an hour before I can check my email from my Iphone (bored with my story yet? hehe) -- I was that scared to find an email from boss! Haha... There was but it was ok.

Tuesdays mean a late night meeting for me... I am so tired. And, I have to finish a project to post tomorrow. Cramming again... What else is new? *grins*

Food Love

I love food. There's no denying that. And, sharing it with one of my BFFs was extra special. We had seafood and it was sooooo good.
On a related note... *grin* When I was in California, I was in search of the best Strawberry Lemonade that can top the one at Red Robin. Yum!!! I think I ordered that in all the restaurants we went to.

Thomas Edison

He was asked how he felt on the 10,000 failures before finally lighting up the first light bulb.

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work"

Sketch 229

I was a bit intimidated by the sketch. I've been thinking on how I can blend the pictures with the trees. But, I know that this is the paper that I will use.
And then, out of the blue, I thought why not make a no-photo layout. Thus, the dresses/pants above. Then, I couldn't find the perfect alphas but I know that I want to convey that "life is good" with this layout. I kept thinking about Matthew 6:25-28 ---> “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.

I've been worried a bit (a lot!!!) lately. If the new software version will work in mixed environment. Will we encounter problem? And, God has been so good about reminding me not to worry, that everything's gonna be alright....

December Daily Cover

Here's my simple cover. This is a Maya Road Chipboard album which I altered using Webster Pages. The design is very similar to my layout, Shine... It's one of my favorite layouts this year and I just had to scraplift it. Hehe...

I have a week to go to fill the album up and I have only finished one page. Oh well... When there's a will, there's a way.

Do link up if you're joining the fun. Would love to hear your December Dailies...

December Daily

I am taking part this year. 2010. What urged me was my not so good day yesterday. So, to take my mind off my boss who was asking questions that I don't have the answer at the moment and my daughter who was throwing up every time she eats. (my daughter was watching tv at this point hehehe) I started the cover of my December Daily. I still have no idea what to put inside though hihihi...

I am using my OLD Webster Pages stash. And I just realized that I might run out. I am crossing my fingers that I don't have to touch my new ones hahaha (so that I can use my new ones next year --- that seemed to be my phase as I am still using Christmas 2009 WP papers).

I managed to put the title on the cover page. But, I need add some more blings and flowers and swirls and cut-outs... Can't wait to go home!

Sketch 228

Work has taken its toll. It's on my mind 24x7 (oki, it's a bit exaggerated hehehe but I couldn't sleep much and kept on thinking about my project at work). I can't wait for December when there are no decisions to be made, no boss to be scared of, no tantrums to pacify, no very late night meetings to attend to.

Sorry for the rant. Here's sketch 228. I was very excited to do this then when I sat down last Friday, I couldn't find the right papers. I ended up choosing Basic Grey which later on, I felt it doesn't suit the pics. It looked dark. Oh well. (see first para --- my scrapbooking is affected!)

Sketch 227

This is a combination of Jillibean Soup and MLS. Funny but I think this is my first or second time to use their papers. And, I love how they can be combined together. The papers are not Christmasy but love the houses from MLS and the background papers from Jillibean. (Funny how I made sure that I still have one more left of that brown paper from Jillibean - I am a hoarder - forever!)

Sketch 225

I had a rough day yesterday at work. Well, I am at work as I write this. I was so tired last night that even though my heart was very heavy from worry and fear, I fell asleep almost as soon as I hit the bed.

I woke up feeling refreshed. Praying, praying as I download my mails to my phone. And God has once again delivered me and my colleague. I am happy to start the day without a scolding. Hahaha...

This was taken at Monterey with my BFF as we goofed off that day! It always warm my heart that our frienship has stood the test of time and distance. We've been friends for 19 years! Love you, Z! If you need gifts for Christmas, she has a web store that sells purse hangers, please check out her products! It's very useful and they are great gifts for Christmas ---> Small Goby
