I am still here

Hello friends, i am back after a long break. I am so happy to share these layouts with you.
I found myself breaking out of my creative box, venturing into these bright and gorgeous colors.
The color orange can be my friend now. Officially I have fallen in love with this color.

Here's from CSI Case 15. really liberating to venture out!

I love the pop of grey/light black I have added.... and the vertical design just lit me up.
and most important of all, I am back with my journal.
Sometimes I feel my creative art has given way ... i lost my way in the decoration and products. I wan to remember it was journaling that draw me to scrapbooking. I am glad i didn't lose this voice of mine.

Here's another one full of sunshine and hope.i love the pairing of orange and turquoise.
This is precisely the emotion I want to capture because during this vacation we stumble upon this amazing oasis. It was stunning! I love such thrill, such surprises. It makes turning a corner real fun.
Actually we were lost .... and then ops, we turn into this paradise. What fun! 

Alright, hope you have a great week ahead. Blessings to you!

messy memory

I have 2 girls and dressing them up is part of my mommy privilege. There are some good days and some messy days. Like this special occassion where I doll her up in a new dress and a nice hairdo. But within 15 seconds or maybe 15 minutes.. she looks like this. Messy... as if she steps out of the dumpster truck! Seriously.... well... i have learnt to laugh at moments like these.... or maybe flash out my camera and click!

I use some new Melissa Frances here... I just love their papers and resin. Did i tell you I have a secret obsession with these resin pieces? shhh.... i collect 1 in every design... or maybe 2.... oops! my secret is out. I know.. I found some design in 2s. hmmm....

1) I didn't start with any design in mind. I just layer and layer till i like it. Do you scrap like this sometimes? 2) I added in some seam binding. If you want to buy some, i made some to sell. Look at my sale page ... HERE 3) Oh.. those mica flakes.. my fave medium now!!!! Hope you like this layout. see you soon

Maya Road Goodies

This week, I created a Maya Road 4x4 Canvas for my Made With Love assignment.
We want to feature some Maya Road goodies. I altered this cute little mini with paints and Maya Mists(the orangey yellow is my fave now). I added lots of Maya Road goodies to this album
Inspiration behind this album: I wanted to document all the 'go-to' food places we always go to.My family loves to eat and whenver we are lost as to what cafes or restaurants to go... we will head back to these same places. Our comfort food places or simply convenient places which offer our fave food. I thought it would be nice to journal down these regular hang-outs.
The Cover: I applied gesso with a Crafter's Workshop mask.. see those cute prints.. then I wash it over with teal paint. Then splatter some yellow Maya Mists. Awesome color combo for me!
My kids love eating at Ikea because they get to see the kids furniture (their dream home apparently) ... while my hubby and I love the meat balls and fried chicken wings.
Yep.. our dessert places... ice cream!!! We love visiting new ice cream palour... Daily Scoop is our fave... Udders is mine personally (because it has the best Rum & Raisins)... hahaha
And now some Maya Road goodies for sale. See these 3 boxes of Maya Road products. i am selling part of each because these comes in such a huge assortment
you get 1 of every design in each box... so this is what you will get:
1) 6 doorway chipboard
2) 8 Ornate Tags chipboard
3) 10 Cystal head Pins
selling these for only S$6, including postage to your local address.
Hope you like my project today. Anyone seen the latest Somerset Magazines yet? It left me breathless with all the inspiration!
