Up And About

I was feverish last Thursday and went to take a one-day medical leave. Got a bit better (and drowsy due to meds) so I thought I was superwoman and take on Dawter T's birthday as if I am well. Woke up at 6AM to go to mass with Dawter T. Then, cooked some of Dawter T's fave dishes. Even if we didn't really have a party, me in the kitchen means standing the whole time, in front of the stove, washing my hands ~~~ so I guess that would really call for a relapse.

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.

Materials Used :

Don't Miss This!

Pamela is giving away her August Scarlet Lime kit!!! Hop in here and leave a comment!

I hope I get lucky!

Dawter T is Seven!


We're not going to have a big celebration. I hope she'll be happy nevertheless. I decided to make a card for her though she complained that there's no element of surprise anymore as she has already seen it.

Happy birthday to my dear princess! Stay happy!

Sketch 157

There's just a sketch that when you see it, you already know what you'll do with it. This is one of them! This layout is full of Sassfras goodness.

Sunday, 16 August 2009


Last night, I mentioned in my post that I have already made 3 layouts. I couldn't believe that after writing that, I still have the energy to create one more. Big accomplishment as I thought that my mojo has runaway and not coming back hehehe

For Sketch 156 at Scrapbook Challenges

Initially the photo for this layout was the one I used for Nutty Princess Smile but something was off, I couldn't finish it. So, I decided to change. It's quite simple though.

For Annie's Sunny Days at Scrapbook Challenges :

I labored with the flower handcut but I must say that WRMK papers still hold a magical effect on my scissors. Though I noticed that for every line, I seemed to have this sort of layout. Hehehe. Two flower clusters and photo on the middle. Still, I love it! And, this photo is when I was still young and thin!!!

Lastly, for Scrappers At SG :

I am very thankful for Mareng B for always thinking of ways to revive the group. With everybody's busy schedule, we are not able to meet up anymore, we don't even issue challenges. Last Friday, Cute#1 asked us to post a challenge just to bring the group to life (yeah, yeah, like the song! ~Bring Me To Life~ that's what I was thinking.)

So where's LO # 4, I cannot share it yet. Stay tuned as Pamela brings up the new sketch on Monday!

Thank you so much for looking!

Busy Bee

Yes, yes I know... I've been MIA again. Life is full of surprises that makes me hop each day. Work has been draining me and I try to keep up. Scrapbooking has taken a back seat but just finished three LOs today so mojo is probably coming back!

Some plugging! Hehehe...

Sketch 155

was created by co-dt Rowee at Scrapbook Challenges. Join us at SC this week as wonderful challenges awaits you!


She doesn't have much photos unlike Dawter T when she was a baby. It's not because we're not excited but I guess what they say about the second born is true. Hehe. Every month I take a photo of her but she has the same expression on her face.

She's so easy to please. We put her down in the crib and she's good. I miss her babyishness. She's still my baby though.

I love to squeeze her with my hugs at night. Not so afraid that I will squash her like Dawter T. She's got the fats now hehehe Never really thought that she will become the chubby girl she is now.

Doesn't she look sweet in that middle photo? Look at her right cheek, she was munching something there and if you look closely at the photo, you'll see a crumb on her face. Makes the photo more special!
