Pressing on...

It has been a rough day but i am finding some time to upload more layouts as well as to take a breather from the hectic life. Sometimes, life takes you on a rollercoaster and you often find yourself lost and confused as to how the future looks ahead. I can rest assured that i have a family who loves me and a God who is far greater than all my problems. I am staying positive!

So how about more layouts to share? What better way then to scrap about two favourite people in the world now? K and B... they are growing up so fast and i want to seize every moment I have with them.

 1. This first layout was very much inspired by the need to focus on the pictures itself. I chose to do a collection of photos i took with K and to minimise my usual embellishments. A quick tip: Brads can be use as an awesome embellishments to add interest to the page.

2. This was also done in conjunction for the CSI#37 sketch and Sept OUAS challenge. 

This was the most recent layout i completed of B. I find that i hardly scrap about her since she is not of that age where she can smile into the camera. However, i managed to get this photo from my sil and it is my current favourite. This layout talks about my desire to be watching how she grows and not to miss a thing. It was inspired by Taylor Swift lyrics " Come Morning Light, you and i will be safe and sound."

Okay, i hope that it inspires you to scrap this week.
Till then, have a great week ahead.

Wow, one week has passed so fast and before you know it, its back to school tomorrow. Why does time pass so fast when you are having fun? Nonetheless, it was a great week catching up with friends and loved ones as well as finally been able to scrap more.

I have been busy packing up my scraproom, considering that I have been buying alot since my LSS is having a major 60% off sale. My room was so packed with Prima flowers that I couldnt find more space to keep them. I start rummaging through my whole pile, decided on which ones I didnt want and gave it to my sil. The remaining ones that I kept, i decided that it was time to use them. So this whole week was PRIMA week. :D That means, i made an album and did two layouts. Hooray but I STILL HAVE A LOT MORE LEFT! Oh well, i am sure there is no harm keeping them for rainy days right? :D

Here to share what I did...

 1) A layout on my dearest niece, Beth. Using all my pretty flowers and papers from the Tea Thyme Collection. I am so in love with this layout. :D

2) This was for OUAS Sept Challenge as well as CSI #36 challenge. I am so glad that they partnered together since they are really the two sites that i patron the most. This challenge was all about using the sketch given as well as including the necessary evidence, testimonial and colour scheme. I am so glad I challenge myself to journal through acrostic. I so loved how i textured my background too: the mesh gesso and the subtle bricks misting. :D

3) Lastly, a lot of mistings, masking and use of flowers for this album. I am not a big album person but i am so glad that i managed to do so much for this album. I love my happy project! :D

That will be all for this week. Hopefully, I will much time to blog in the coming weeks. For now, it is pouring outside and it is time to take a short nap. (:
