Misting weekend and my recent BG craze

I love MR Mist over paints coz it dries faster, and easier to apply - and minimum cleaning (provided proper protection is done). Spent the kids' naptime misting these chipboard shapes so i can just grab one as and when i need it.


I don't know why it took me years to fall in love with Basic Grey, but once I'm in love - I'm head over heels - absolutely helpless! The moment I stepped into a LSS, I cannot seem to get out without buying at least ONE BG stuff. I esp love these collections.




and I was so lucky to be picked by Krafers' Paradise to be the Feb-2011's winner, and needless to say - this voucher went to a BG Hopscotch Belly Pack which is soooooooooo sweet;)

{baby edith} - first year album

I got commissioned by Trudy to scrap a First Year album for her new-mummy friend, and here I did a 6 by 6 album, using AC's album and lots of DCVW Nursery PP. Happy viewing:)

spent some time working on the otherwise plain cover. Added a brown based acrylic frame with pins, pearls and lace to the cover. Like the end result:)

somehow, i like the effect of the newly bought AC's epoxy Thickers, the font is so cute!










and i recycled a Sweetest Moment cake box as the album box:)

Help Japan.

I believe many of us are saddened & shocked by the massive quake/tsunami and now nuclear leak in Japan. My heart goes out to all the affected people, and once again make me realise that there is just so much we can do in life against such natural disasters.

I'm again impressed by the orderly Japanese society despite such major upheaval to their lives. They again show us their generosity and good discpline by demostrating good behaviours during such trying times. Imagine this happening to Singapore, where people could jump queue and fight over a packet of overpriced nasi briyani on Chinese New Year Day 1 jus because most shops are closed and they are hungry, its not even life threathening -what a big shame.

Though we could not personally be there to help salvage the situation, pls join me to do a part by donating to the organisations belong so they could help more.

first year album for {jude}

This is a quick first year album for my Nephew who is turning one this weekend:) I love this brag book from Kikki, so easy to get the album done! And I realised I dont have many pictures of my nephew - need to take more in the future!

i sewn on a button with the number 12th as his birthdate. But the drowsy flu med made me giddy and i realised i sew alittle too low to the rubber strap. tsk.
