Back ...

In a flash, a third of the year has swept past, and I'm still trying to find a momentum I can handle. No. 3 has totally taken a toll on my time and energy, yet... he's just the perfect complement and more to our family. He makes our day.

Here's the March DT project I did for Scraplicious. I love how it turned out. All the new Prima goodies and of cos my fav Websters trims... 

Thanks for dropping by !

It's 2012

Yes, 2 weeks and more along and am already breathless.
The routines have and will continue to be punishing but will no doubt have to keep the spirits up and have a blast.

It's been a big year - 2011. Thanks for the memories. Mostly glad for this guy who's changed all our lives...

2012, hopefully is one of a slower pace to consolidate, reinforce and reinvigorate.

On the scrappy front, I've started Project Life 2012. SO HAPPY as it'll be back to doing what I love most - capturing the stories and memories first, and the aesthetics second.

While the artistic creative bit is fun, there is at times too much pressure to make it more complicated than necessary to show that a piece is worth its salt. This year, I hope to take it easier, with projects that pare it down, and let the pictures and journaling speak for themselves.

Will be back soon with an update on how Project Life is going thus far.
Til then, here's wishing all of you who celebrate - a prosperous Lunar New Year !!

Scraplicious DT projects

Hey there !

It's certainly been a while but am sure all the busy moms know the drill.
With exams, a new house to settle into and a sticky baby in tow, life was overwhelming.
But am happy.

Girls did us really proud with their excellent grades and awards.
Tiny is growing well and rotund ;)
These projects created with Prima's pixie glen and printery papers
are lovely with kiddie shots for that whimsical.

Loads of 3d pop up effects here. Get a closer look at Scraplicious- u can't miss it !
This little tyke is growing way too quickly !

14 weeks on...

It's been such a great 14 weeks since this little tyke came into our lives.
Despite the sleepless nights (mine mostly) and the howls and whines from time to time, he's brought just so much joy and sunshine -

that winning ready smile that melts your heart;

a look that says 'carry me please';

those rolls of fat on the tummy and thighs

perfect responses to words like 'splash', 'kick', 'tongue'

thunderous passing of gas be it from the upper or rear end which sends girls into peals of laughter

We love you so soo much and couldn't imagine our lives without you.
Something i created to celebrate our wonderful boy...

Scrappy happy

I had a rare reprieve over the last couple of days and created these using shots taken by my nieces.

Cousins @ Play
a treat for the girls as they got to
catch up with their cousins at a recent family get-together.
a lovely lovely day that certainly had to be captured for posterity.

(supplies: Crate Paper "Random"; American Craft "Garden Cafe"; 7G word stickers; Prima blooms) 

Crate Paper's 'Random' line is just awesome and the chips are too fun to play with. 
Mixed and layered the 'random' chips here with 7G word stickers.

Love the 'pop' of pink and yellow here against the more muted greys
i love love love this pic.
 (supplies: Crate Paper "Random"; American Craft "Garden Cafe"; Maya Road trim; Zva bling; Martha Stewart punch)

Ahhh.... need more time to scrap ! Soo good for the soul :)

Personalised notebooks + Scraplicious Sketch Challenge#2

The girls and I produced these ... And we added tags to act as bookmarks for these personalised notebooks.
hee ! nothing too fancy but fun to put together..

The girls included the stamped hedgehogs. They very gladly used my Copic markers to colour..
Hope their teachers like them too !

And all those who want to get scrappy, what better way than play with a Sketch !

I love sketches. 
Takes the pain out of thinking how to structure a layout and just lets me get right into the fun bits of playing with pretty stuff !

This was my take

And you stand to win these goodies worth $50 :)

Just upload your entry by 12 Sep 2011 onto the Scraplicious website gallery.

Thanks for dropping by !
Here's wishing all my Muslim friends a wonderful Selamat Hari Raya Adilfitri!
