Once upon a sketch

Here is my interpretation for Once Upon a sketch challenge.
I like this sketch site because it has a journaling element.
And that's the reason why I love scrapbooking.
Checck it out HERE.
she is at the height where her eyes meet my middle kingdom aka tummy. One day I took her into a fitting room to try on a dress. There she exclaimed 'wow,that's a BIG tummy"... worse on.. she ran a running commentary on my tummy - flabby, wobbly. Then I heard giggles and laughter from outside. Then I wish I could float away!!!
Funny story, right? Our kids are very good at embarrassing us! I think they top that area big time.
Alright.... have fun this week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Fairy, Pixie dust and wings

Hello friends, sorry for missing in action. Some unforsee things happen. I went to the eye specialist. Guess what.... discover I had Retina Tear in my right eye. I have never heard of this before. Scedule a surgery immediately that week because my doctor said we cannot wait. I can go blind if the tear worsen. *Grasp*...... thank God ... I am fine now.
Hmm.... that's why I can type this post. LOL
But good advice for you... have your eyes checked at least once a year
I can't wait to scrap after my op but I was told to rest it a bit first.
So yesterday was the first time I scrap since 18 Oct.
A layout of Pixie Dust, Glitter and wings.
I found a old photo of my elder girl when she was 4+ yrs old.
Now then I did a comparison with my younger one who is 4+ now.
Can you spot the difference.
One is goofy, definitely chubby..... and fun
The other is soft, sweet and delicate (oh... we think she is pretending to be demure).. LOL
I layered lots of Glimmer Mist in the background. I love adding such touches.
And I took out my Glimmer Glam in Pink and load it to my Prima Resin pieces.
Look at that mushroom and bird house. I love the effect.
So how are you doing my friends. take care and have a great week!
This layout is up on Made with Love now and you can see it at the store too.

So, what's up with me? I had grand plans to scrap on my off day. But well, the nice raining weather and my soft bed calling me. I slept in! Then i sleep some more! Yay... I blamed it on my resistant flu bug.
But I was not complaining .... I felt better after the zzzz............
So, nothing at the scrapping front but lots happiness at home.
We are planning for our year end holiday.
Hooray! I can't wait! This animal will give you a hint where I am heading next!!!
Good day, mate!
Some random pictures I found at Pinterest which just calls out to me. I love teal. I love vintage.
See this typewriter....... it should be called Wendy's! Anyone knows where i can get this baby in Singapore, drop me a email pleeeeaaaasseee......!!! LOL
And this cutie...
And this quote..... oh.. I love it!
But I have to cancel out the 'middle finger portion".... eeeksss... that's not my style!
I dont do that.. I dont like that.
I only like the essence of this quote.
See you, my friends. Taking a break from creating is not a bad thing.
Give yourself time to breathe, see things from a different perspective.

My Creative Sketches Contest

I have to say I not the most known surfer of blogs or sites.... I usually stick to my few favorites and some days when I visited those blogs on my list... I will chance upon something nice.
Last week was one of those weeks... i went to Tomoko blog and she mentioned about My Creative Sketches. I saw a contest and fell in love with the sketch instantly.
BTW, a huge congrats to her for making it to their DT.
You do gorgeous work, Tomoko!!!
It has since inspired a few ideas spinning in my head and I finally was very happy to see the vision come to past in this layout I have created based on the sketch by MCS.
What did I do differently?
I have always loved sketches because I can pull my own spin on it!
1) I traded the circle for another shaped which i used my MS punch to create
2) I kind of tilted the sketch abit but still stick to the 2 pieces of paper behind the photo
3) I made it shabby chic--- my most happy touches. LOL Happy to use a lot of New Primas flowers and vines
I hope this has inspired you to pull out your new stash and use them right away! Happy scrapping .....
