Happy New Year

Wow, it has been almost a month since i last blogged. The holidays have zoomed past so fast that i need time to catch my breath and prepare myself for 2012. How has everyone been? HK trip came and went and before you know it, christmas preparations came along and i have quite a number of lovely christmas celebrations. Right now, i am about to get ready for tonight New Year Party. (: It has been a fantastic year and looking back, i have so much to be thankful for. God has provided in so many aspects and he has indeed blessed me with a lot.

Sharing some christmas scrapping here.. this year was kept really simple. I tried the impossible task of giving my good friends each a canvas piece last year and it was so taxing on me. This year, it was all about practicality.

Each of my friends receive simple MUJI To Do List Notepads and each was decorated with love. Thank God for MUJI in Hong Kong where they were cheaper. I love how this can be placed at our workdesk for easy reference. I hope they enjoyed it as much as i loved decorating it. :D

I hope i will be back with more scrapping stuff to share. For now, i have been quite lazy and busy catching up with work preparation for the new term. Here is wishing everyone a Happy 2012. May we reach towards our goals in this coming year and may it be filled with joy and contentment. (:

Here we go

At this time tomorrow, i would be in my favourite city in the world. I simply cant wait.. You must be wondering what is so great about Hong Kong? Well, people do say it is pretty much the same as Singapore but i cant put into words why i love the place. I love the people, the food, the shopping and i love how vibrant the city is. It is like a city that never sleeps - the culture and the lights and the atmosphere... HEAVEN! :D

So before i go, i am going to sneak in here for a quick last post. I managed to complete 2 layouts yesterday, in the hopes of me sharing with you guys.

First up, this layout is for this week's Sketchy Thursday Sketch. Well, if you havent check out the latest OA's Farmhouse collection, you should certainly do so. I thought the grid paper would match this week's sketch quite nicely and i did some clusters of circles. I love this childhood picture of mine and it was finally fitting to use it in a layout.

Last but not least, i said earlier that i had to rush out another layout before tomorrow because this layout is going to be brought along with us to Hong Kong to give to my auntie. She has shown hospitality to us whenever we go to Hong Kong and offers us her house to stay and brings us to all those awesome places to eat. We cant thank her enough.

I left a space in the layout for her to put a picture of her family. I hope she likes it as much as i enjoyed making it.

Okay, that wraps up this short post.
Hong Kong, here we go..

I know I know

i havent been blogging for quite some time. Before you know it, 2 weeks of the holidays have passed. Wow, i have been seriously slacking my life away. And because of that, i havent had much chance to scrap. I should be scrapping but i have been too busy catching up on all my drama serials. Haha. Well, the good news is that i finally started scrapping today since i needed to get a layout done before Tuesday, which i will share in another post.

For now, have you checked out Get Picky's Inspirational Challenge #14. I was given the lovely opportunity to guest design for this challenge. This challenge was all about using words to document on whatever story you wanted to tell. I chose to document about Kate turning 3 and her current quirks and loves at this age.

So as you can see, I chose to leave a lot of space for journalling and this was using my remaining papers and bellies from the OA's SideWalk Collection. So thanks again to Get Picky for the lovely opportunity to showcase my layout for this challenge. (:

Do hop on to GetPicky and try out for this challenge. :D

Next, I was featured in Prima's October BAP.

Well, it was one of my favourite layouts made by Prima Products and i am glad that they loved it too. :D

Lastly before i go, this last layout is a Chritmas layout done for the Dec 1st Challenge over @ OnceuponASketch. I was really drawn by the idea of scrapping about what the things i look forward in December. The Christmas Tags were all distressed with Tim Holtz's Winter Seasonal dies and each tag is labelled with sentiments for this Christmas.

"If you do not know, Christmas is my favourite Season of the year. Quite frankly, the festive season makes my heart warm and what i look forward the most is spelt out in the layout : Faith, Love, Joy and Family. This is the essence of Christmas (December), to celebrate the blessings that He has given to me."

So this would be my last post before i leave for a short break to HK. I simply cant wait to be back at my 'second' home. Have a great week ahead. :D
