DT work for YSS, plus Scrap Schemes

Ok... it's been a week since I post. Here are some stuff for YSS as well as Scrap Schemes. 1) Mini Album for YSS I wanted a mini album to remember the relationship between me and my older girl. I became a stay at home mom because of her, right? Anyway, here is to the adventures we shared over the years. She is 8 now and I really want to go back in time where she is little. I love this project. Notice I use the cupcake as a tab! Yay... I tried 2 of them and I totally love it! I kept the design really simple... using scallop edges and my circle scallop punch! Really easy to do! Hope you like it. 2) Fashion SO wrong? My little Ms ellise loves fashion but sometimes it is very wrong. Like wearing goggles for this hair-do is not my idea.......... it is HERS and she is so cool about it! I scraplift this from Juliana Michaels. She posted this at CMK gallery. She is an amazing talent. Love what she did with the eyelet and the frame. When I scraplift, I believe in giving credit to the person. 3) DT for Scrap Schemes Join in this week for some cool inspiration. Come over to this challenge blog and take a shot at it. You can win that huge pack of goodies! HERE. Yes.. I know... this must be a long post. I received a award from Sharon Ong. Here is it: Thanks Sharon for taking I am creative.... I never think of myself that way....... esp when I am still spooked by my art teacher... she failed my art when i was only 13 yrs old. Hahaha... i need some therapy for that! But I am going to play this award thingy differently...... instead of just nominating them... anyway, I dont expect them to pass it on cos this award thingy has been going around. But I like the essence and spirit of this award so I am going to tell you whose blog I stalk and why I like each of them, ok! A) Audrey Pettit She does very elegant pieces of LOs and art.

Hi Wendy! Your projects are beautiful, girl! I LOVE your cupcake mini album. The color scheme is so bright and happy, and I love the idea of using that cupcake as a tab. And I just laughed out loud at the fashion page with the goggles. Gorgeous page and that is just too funny. Love the painting technique on the Miracles page, too.
And I have to tell you how honored and touched I am by your kind words about me. That completely caught me off-guard and absolutely made my day. I do NOT deserve such words, but I appreciate it more than I can tell you!
Have a great day!

Aiyoh Wendy, you so nice. Say all those nice things. Hey, must forget your art teacher's comments for good ok? Since when did the grades you get in school ever reflect who you truly are anyway? Yah? You are certainly creative in the way you see things in your own unique way - love the cupcake!
