Still managed to make these though. Made 9 for my colleagues... Small Christmas tokens that I hope they will like. Very economical and easy to make!

The ring frame was made of newspapers that I rolled and wrapped. I then wrapped the ring with left-over Christmas wrappers.
For the poinsettias :
1. Cut a 2x1 inches of paper then fold it.
2. Cut a half petal shape out along the fold. The fold on the center makes a nice touch when you glue them together.
3. Repeat until you have 5 petals.
4. Glue the tips of the petals together until you form the poinsettias.
5. Adhere a button on the center.
6. Then, decorate the edges and tips with gold Stickles.

Next year will be different for me. I've decided to pursue non-scrapbooking commitments.
But, I will still be scrapping, still be joining challenges.
Thank you so much!

Last weekend was my on-call weekend. I didn't get to enjoy it. I was tooooo incredelous/mad with my user to enjoy my Saturday. Let me just say that the user ruined my Saturday and for this coming one, I intend to enjoy it. I will read, I will scrap and I will watch tv. I will not think about work. I will enjoy and not think about anything. This is for me. Like what Sister C encouraged me to do this morning.
Have a happy weekend!

I have decided to write down what I am thankful for today, just want to celebrate this day (coz I won't receive emails from my boss who's in the US hahaha just kidding!). Seriously... Everyday, we have something to be thankful for, it will make our days brighter remembering them...
Very thankful to God, He's someone whom I can turn to... He never forgets even when I do...
For family and friends, colleagues as well...
For the days that had passed and days to come...
For food on our table...
For work though sometimes stressful...

It was so timely coz Mareng M thought of issuing another challenge for Scrappers At SG. I suggested to lift one of Piradee's work - her awesome calendars. Wrote to Piradee and she was so nice and gracious to us. She'll be judging the best calendar later on!
Here's my take on the challenge.
I used Emerson line from Scrap Within Reach.

Dawter T didn't go through that phase. Unfortunately, Bebi A did.
When I arrived home from work, I came upon Bebi A cutting her fringe. I screamed (which is sooo not good). And, she got scared. Good thing she didn't poke her eye with the scissors.
Thursday, 5 November 2009
So, if you're feeling down, why don't you list down the things that made you smile...
- Bebi A munching a pack of Chili Cheeze Corn bits and drinking a cup of Soya Milk with Pearl. *takaw*
- My boss asking me and the other APAC IT gal here to purchase a new laptop this November... (Woohoo! I am so tired waiting for my laptop to boot up every morning. I already made coffee and still the apps are not loaded.)
- That Dawter T doesn't feel that she's too old for cuddling. I asked her, "do you mind that Mommy's *ehem* chubby?". She said no. In fact she likes it. *ok, ok, I didn't threaten her!*
- For the rain.
- Reading Joel Osteen's devotional today - In Everything.
- Finding my long, lost umbrella. Yey!
- For our Christmas wreath hanging at our gate, it was made by my dear tito-in-law. Last night, I heard our neighbors say "HO, HO, HO!"
- For the RAK I received! Woohoo!
- For this list. It actually made me smile again remembering all the things above.
So, if you're feeling a bit off, I encourage you to list down the things that makes/made you happy or things you are looking forward to.

The box came when we bought gourmet popcorn at Cathay. Told myself that it can be altered later on so I saved it.
Halloween is just around the corner, though we don't celebrate it here. My scrap buddies and I planned on a Halloween scrapmeet! This is perfect for the Halloween gift swap!
Instructions are up at SWR's blog!
And those candies are contributions by my girls!

Gong Joo is princess in Korean. Fitting for her coz of her love for Korean drama. I added Prima flowers which she loveeeeee so much. Hehe. And after a long while, I finally used paper rolling! Woohoo, I think I'll be using this more on my future projects. It's just so much fun to do!
When I was writing the journal, it strucked me that she's a Princess because her father is the ONE TRUE KING. She has made Jesus the center of her life and I hope she will continue to do so. That she'll be more zealous in facing her challenges --- Aja aja Fighting!

I used a flower stamp with small leaves on the side of the photo, I borrowed it from Sister C. I specially love the upper left corner of this layout. Tore the paper then pasted the same paper but using the back which is color maroon. Then cut out some flowers and leaves to compliment it.

The picture was taken at Fisherman's Wharf in SFO. These two ladies are my best buddies. No matter how far, or near... How long or how short... We seem to pick up where we left of. I miss them so much. Z is from SFO while A is from Minneapolis. Ok, ok... I must mention the one who took the picture, our barkada's genius, Kuya S who's from NY. I am so grateful to them for coming to SFO to see me. It was a night to remember.

This was taken at Singapore Zoo while waiting for the elephant show.
Then, we went out to the living room and hang. Her Ninang gave her some pens and we used that to play Tic Tac Toe. We noticed that she started sweating which is a good sign according to Ate A. As we played, I tricked *yeah* her to eating some rice and bacon. After she finished the serving, she started complaining of tummy ache again, she slept and we monitored if she will wake up to throw up. She did not!
She was a bit grumpy when she woke up. But lightened up when she asked if she can play Wii. I thought that it's a good sign so I let her. She was so lethargic the past few days so playing Wii Sports will really help her be active once more.
And, as they say, the rest is history. She played for maybe 3 hours --- tennis, bowling, baseball... And now, as I write this, she's in front of the computer, sharing time with her Ate T.
I am so thankful to God for this blessing, for His healing hands....

Head over to The Scrappy Shack and find out how to win awesome diecuts in celebration of Loree's birthday!
I really hope she gets better soon. If not, I think she'll be checked in to a hospital so that she won't be dehydrated. Please help us pray for her recovery.

Still managed to go to work on Monday but was already feeling droopy. Got a 1 day medical leave the next day (Yey! No meeting for me!) but still was not feeling better so I went back to the doctor and this time gave me another 2 days. Spent the days sleeping and trying to recuperate.
Still have colds and cough but I don't feel like being cooped at home. So here I am, at the office, blogging, blog hopping, posting at SC and FBing...
Here's last Monday's Sketch 158 at Scrapbook Challenges.
