SS13 : Look Beyond

Today is my birthday, well, it's almost coming to an end in this part of the world but before it does, I would like to share with you all the sketch I contributed for Sizzling Summer Sketches at Scrapbook Challenges. Finally discovered the wonder that's called shapes in Photoshop Elements, LOL! All the elemets are from PE, even the splats.

And, here's my take on the sketch, it took me about 3 days to finish this. I didn't really work on it the whole time but I did experiment on my paint dabber, mists, chalk, Stickles, crackle paint. I know that it's not really much but my paints were very happy that they were opened and they get to breathe fresh air.

I am still not sure if mixed media is for me coz it made me wash my hands a lot of times that the natural oil is probably gone by now. The OC in me doesn't like my hands getting paint, Stickles, etc. Duhhh... It was fun though and I really hope that I will.

Btw, the upper right hand?! Do you see the key there? Pardon me, but I got carried away with mixed media that you couldn't really see the image of the key anymore. Hehe. But, it's a key that I cut free hand. I love that key though you can't see it. LOL!

For my birthday gift, I gave myself the gift of REST as a present. I've been working overtime most days lately that I just want to do nothing for a change. But then, it's hard to break habit for a day, I still checked my emails at work and still logged on today to solve one issue. But, promise, that was the only one. *wink*

SS09 : Chick

This layout is based on my dear friend, Jolanda's sketch. With eyes closed, I used my Bo Bunny Olivia papers, cut them up, tear them and used them on this layout. I love this layout, Bebi A loves it as well. She said she looks so cute on the photo LOL

SC Blog Hop Winner

Since it's Bebi A's birthday today, I asked her to pick the winner.

Bebi A's pick :

Kathleen, please email me your address at totallydoodles@gmail.com. Thank you!

Born on the 5th of July

My baby is 6 years old today. How time flies... Sometimes I have to pinch myself really hard.

She's a notorious flirt. Hahaha... She has a crush on Bruno Mars.
Loves to sing songs but doesn't like to read.
She's very sweet. Likes to be hugged and kissed.
She's very generous with her time, with her things.

She likes to eat pasta without the sauce, just cheese.
Or noodles with rice? Carbo-loading.

I asked her one time what she wants to be when she grows up.
She said she wants to be a mommy. She wants to take care of her baby. Huh~

So, I don't dare ask again.

I couldn't believe that it's possible to love someone this much.
But, I love her more, much more than when I first saw her.
Much, much more as time passes by.
