First thing I read this morning is about my BIG God who is the God of small things too! So, no wonder it's a prologue of what's going to happen the whole day. I tend to be NEGA (major, major) and I am trying to swing that around and be more positive, not to be stressed with small things.

Anyway, I WON, I WON at Scrappers AT SG's Challenge #36. Thank you so much Beband and her hubby, Benjo for picking my layout. The layout, Shine, is my everyday affirmation. It's now pinned on my wall and will be there forever. Hehehe. When I am down, I know this will motivate me to be better and to know that God is just by my side, cheering me on.

And, I didn't get any stressful emails from my boss. That's a huge blessing for me. The moment I wake up, that's the first thing that comes to my mind. If I have the dreaded email or will my day be awesome because there's none. My boss is not an ogre, he's actually quite nice. But, it's so hard to please someone far, far away. Hahaha.

Anyway, writing this made me affirm that I have to let go of those negative thoughts. And, I know the solution to that. PRAY. *wink*

Finallllyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.... I've managed to scrap after 2 weeks... It really is a great feeling to be with my papers again hahaha

This is my entry to Scrappers AT SG's Challenge #36 by Bebang and sponsored by Made With Love. This is inspired by a layout created by Ingvild Bolme - so in love with her work!

I always start my day by reading Today's Word by Joel and Victoria Osteen. This particular reading inspired me so much that I keep a copy of it in my bag. I plan to put this in my workstation so that I will remember that with God's help, I can overcome anything.

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.

Birthday Girl's Choice

Thank you for all your birthday wishes! We had fun celebrating at the beach, my daughter had loads of fun playing with the sand and water. The birthday girl's choice is :


Earlier today, we went to church for mass, she told us that she prayed for good weather and that her two close friends will come to her party.
Both her wishes came true! Sometimes I wish I had child-like faith... So I asked her to pray for me to win the lottery. *wink*

I am really getting bad at thinking of titles but in my defense, I had to think of this in the last 10 minutes of the 1st layout during the class. Hehehe.

Here's my take. And let me repeat it, I really LOVE this technique class. I really learned a lot! If only I am willing to get dirty in the comforts of my home, hahaha...

Should I GO?

I am trying to save (A LOT!!!) because September is gonna be a big month for me. But, these (below) will be available at 11AM today at my LSS. Huhuhu...

I want to have these and especially THESE (been waiting for them) drool, sigh and another sigh... Then, I saw these (I know, I know, I probably won't use these hahaha but a girl can be a glutton sometimes)...

Then, I scrolled down and found these babies (just the stamps) and THESE (how cute is that reindeer eh)!!!

Arggghhh, life is not fair! Good thing it's raining or else my LOW-EQness will make me ride that express bus during lunch time to go to my LSS!!!

I attended a class at Laine's last night! And, I had loads of fun! It's a technique class and the OC in me just took a leave for 3 hours. I love, love it! Thank you so much, Shirley for being patient with me! Hehehe...

I especially like the almost no-pattern paper layout that we did. We used 4-5 distress inks, water and StazOn cleaner. For my scrapper friends who knows me very well, they would be surprised that I did all these. Not that my layouts are super neat, it's just that though I have mediums, I don't normally use them because I hate cleaning up afterwards hahaha

I'll try to take picture of the layout but I am on scrapping high. Hopefully, this will last me for awhile... I will leave you with the freebies I got from the class. (now you know why I am so happy!!! hahaha)

My take on the Scrapbook Challenges' Round Robin. Kudos to Jamie who organized this fun, fun event. There were a lot of teams and managing everything takes time and patience! Thank you, Jamie!

Used Prima Mommy & Me. Finally!!!!! Do you see that blue sheer swirl? Well, a bit disappointed on how it turned out hehehe but nevertheless, it's a step for me in using mediums hahahaha

Quirky, Fun, Haughty, Serious are just few of Dawter T's traits. She can be serious especially if she's in the thinking mood, but she can be wacky and quirky when the occassion calls for it.

This is for Sketch 213 at Scrapbook Challenges. Hope you can join us this week! Also, the Color Challenge at SC is still ongoing and those that submits a layout with sepia photo will get an Imaginisce stamp!

RAK ALERT : Eight Twenty-Two

My eldest daughter is turning 8 on the 22nd and I hope you can celebrate with us!

Just leave a comment and
One lucky winner will be drawn by the birthday girl on August 22, 01:59PM and
will win the goodies below.

Have a great weekend!


My take on Scrappers@SG's round robin. I was the last one on my team and it's so great to see how the layout has evolved. Please check out the layouts of the other members. They're awesome, I tell you!

My little girl is turning 8 next Sunday. I can't believe it!!! I always say that time flies very fast. But, it's true. I can remember how anxious I was and so impatient for her to come out. And, when she did, I fell in love over and over again.
At 7, she now have crushes. Yeah. What can I do, right? But, be her friend hehehe be her annoying friend who tries to make her tell me everything. Hahaha. She likes to dress up and has her own style. She loves to stay glued to anything electronic (computer, tv, Iphone, DS, arggghhhh) but she's still my little girl, and that won't change. It's 10 days away. I want to savor her at seven.

Sketch 212

It's Monday and it's holiday here in Singapore, celebrating the nation's 45th year! I had a very productive but TIRING weekend! I am so happy it's over. I had only a two hour sleep last yesterday due to server upgrade. Won't bore you with the details. I am not checking my emails until tomorrow morning hehehe let's see if I have something to fret about. For now, I am just going to relax.

My family and I went to Labrador Park this afternoon and had fun taking pictures and just enjoying each other's company. It's very seldom that we do this kind of thing. But, I'm so happy we did.

Just want to share with you Sketch 212 at Scrapbook Challenges. This layout is for Bebi A's Ninang C. I am still thinking if I want to give it to her. Hahaha.

My friends and I were chatting earlier about the current challenge at Scrappers@SG when we decided to try online scrapping.

This is from Pencil Lines 196. And, this was supposed to be a 30 minute layout turned to 1 hour. Oh what pressure! Hehehe!

A Five Year Old Drawing

Wish I had taken a picture of Bebi A's drawing. But, I was too happy and tired to even think of it. Really long hours at the office this week but a few more days and I am back to my old schedule. Hehe.

Anyway, last night, my cheeky daughter was drawing a picture of me when suddenly she said, "Mommy, I can't draw you. I can't draw FAT!"


I tried not to laugh but I did. Oh, I will miss these "Kids Says The Darnest Things" moments when she's older and wiser. I try not to think about how fast my girls are growing up.

Here's sketch 111 at Scrapbook Challenges. I was not able to post this last Monday.

One Day In Your Lives

This is for WO #24 at Scrapfit. It's a "Freestyle Relay" wherein you can scraplift a favorite LO by FIT girl.

I picked Katie's "A Day In The Life Of Me" from Workour #15.

Once again, I used Basic Grey and Webster Pages, Prima flower (peach) and Say It In Pearls (my current fave product). Printed the photos in Sepia to create a vintagey look.

Happy 1st year Anniversary to Scrapfit!
