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...

thanks for dropping by !

It's Scraplicious' first colour challenge ! 

Lovely colour palate isn't it ?

Used mostly Websters Pages here

Tiny's three months already ! Just too quick - boo hoo ;)

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!

Scraplicious August Design Team dues...

It's been a while out of the blogging world.
No apologies. Just an overwhelmed chronically tired mum, who still finds the strength to be incredibly happy :P

No less because I got to create these ! 

R doesn't look like this anymore. 
Her permanent teeth have all grown. 
She's a little more rotund,
And has an all-important air around her that says i'm a tween !

This is the new man in my life.
He's also the cause of my sleepless nights.
But I wouldn't have life any other way.
We are totally spell-bound.

This tray encapsulates my favourite photos of the moment.
I still can't believe I have a son.

All materials used are available at Scraplicious (Parkway Parade), and they are displayed in the shop if you'd like to take a closer look.

Surprise baby Sprinkle..

It's been a tiring past few weeks as the load keeps getting heavier nearing D-day. Baby feels like he's going to jump out from belly any second cos' he keeps moving non-stop !

But THIS. THIS totally prepped me up so wonderfully.
My dear sisters planned and executed a surprise Baby Sprinkle for me to top-notch perfection.

We played games, chatted, laughed and had a fantastic time ! Thank you ladies for sacrificing your Sunday afternoon away from family to be with ME ! Am blessed to have you gals in my life.

 And to my dear sisters... no words needed or suffice for the love and companionship we share. For that, I'm just so grateful.

Some thank you cards i made as a token to my BFFs....

I'm sincerely thankful for all i have.

New Layouts

I never knew how to create something about myself.
But as the countdown begins, I'm feeling the increasing need to remind myself to be patient,
and to savour what's left of my freedom !

I really liked how this turned out...

 Another Layout here of the girls. They've been my source of so much happiness and comfort.
Went wild here with the chipboards and stickers. Aren't those birdies and bugs just too adorable :)


Supplies: Crate Paper and 3 Bugs in a Rug
