Hello friends, i have been so busy trying to make sure the house is in order for our traditional Chinese New Year celebrations. Yes... today is the first day and it is huge in our lunar calendar. We make new year goodies.... get the fridge stacked with food to feed visitors and guests. Our house has to be clean. Everyone buy new clothes to wear (this one is not tooooo difficult, LOL).... TO all my Chinese friends, xin nian kwai Le. Happy Chinese New Year! Meanwhile, hop over to CSI site and check Case file 3.... soft and beautiful colors. This photo was taken on 2 Jan and gosh... my little baby looks so grown up! She is clever and smart and definitely a witty cookie. I journal about my hopes and dreams for her in 2012. Hope she can conquer the reading part more!!! LOL.

Hello friends, last Sat was our 2nd reveal. we are super excited to see so many participants for Case File 1. The first launch was a blast!!! So many awesome layouts to look at.... so many new techniques to learn! Join us HERE. I want to see you jumping in with the colors, prompt inspiration. It will be awesome! Dusty Attic is our sponsor this month and you can win some goodies too! Meanwhile here a breakdown of my layout: 1) Technique: I use moulding paste with my brick mask and create a subtle background. 2) Then I mist over to give it some glimmer and rub some distress ink to give a higher contrasts 3) To work witht the Colors given, i took out my paints - painted the DA CHIPBOARD with raspberry paint... yums... going into my fave color for 2012. 4) I stick with a flower cluster but move it vertical so as to give it some height 5) Journaling is hidden in a transparent Prima packaging behind the photo. I love such hidden elements so your eye moves around the page and 'search' for some surprises. I hope you like it. Hop over to CSI site now Lastly I want to wave "hello' to new blog followers. Drop me a note.. I like to say Hi to you. *smiley*
