5 things | Made with Love Feb Blog Hop

Welcome to another month's of blog hop with the MWL Design Team members. We decided to switch things up for this month. Each week, one designer will be given the spotlight as they share more about themselves. This week, the spotlight is on me!

Lets get started..

5 things you might not know about me:

1) I am an introvert. People might find me aloof and nonchalant but often times, I just take a long time to adapt to new friends and a new environment. Once you know me, I can be the most talkative friend you will have.

2) I was in an all girls school for ten years. TEN YEARS. Nothing wrong about it, it was just that we were never allowed to have long hair. Imagine the agony. That is why I never had short hair ever since I was 16 years old.

3) I love the rain. Plain and simple. I simply love listening to the patterning sound of falling rain drops. It is especially soothing when it is pouring outside while I snuggle under my bed sheets.

4) I dislike the colour, pink. I am the least bit girly. Ironically, pink is the most used colour in all my scrapbooking projects.

5) I scrap best when there are no distractions, no music and no one around.


Yup, thats about it. I do hope you have come to know me a little better.  Moving on, let me share with you the layout that I did with the February Kit. 

With the frames, I simply backed it with some embossed vellum paper. The little dots do remind me of rain, don't you think?

I am not particular about mistakes that I make on my layouts. If you can spot, I stamped the date one too many times. There is no wrong or right in scrapbooking. A mistake made can still turn out to be aesthetically pleasing. :D

Lastly, I love this photo of B, K and Mom. This was taken over the CNY period and their smiles in this photo simply melted my heart. Even though the photo is about them and not about me, but when you scrap about the people you love, you are also scrapping about yourself too. 

Products and Papers used:
Yours Truly collection by Pebbles
Love Note collection by Crate Paper
Vintage Frames by Melissa Frances

Saturday Bliss

It is good to be able to wake up late on a Saturday morning. How rare is it, for me to wake up without worrying about work. Last night was a ball too! Awesome company with my friends at a new cafe in town and Karoake thereafter with my trusted colleague, Song! It is all good. I am hoping to get some scrapping done today too!

For now, two recent layouts to share..

I used papers and products from the latest Oh Darling collection by Crate Paper. Gorgeous array of girly products that I absolutely adore. One of the resolution I have this year would be to work on my titles. I do want to push myself creatively to think of better titltes instead of sticking to the usual boring ones. I am going to work on it for sure!

I will be back on Tuesday for another post. Do look forward to it. Its my turn, for the MWL Feb Blog Hop. Be sure to check it out on that day as I share more about myself and my scrapping journey. It's going to be exciting!

Have a great weekend ahead.

Say I Love You

It has been a fruitful week so far. The Chinese New Year is here and we have been celebrating it over this weekend with lots of visitations, food and company. It is certainly a time to be joyful as we catch up with friends and family. I am also taking the opportunity to rest up as I fell sick this week. Thank God, I am better now.

Over at the Crate Paper's blog this week, I did a post on little mini projects embarked for this Valentine's Day. Be sure to check the link out. These envelopes (containing love notes) and mini album are so dear to me now. I simply hope my family members would love them when I display them on Feb 14.

I am so in love with the Love Note collection. Crate Paper has outdid themselves again. I am truly thankful for another awesome year with them. Be sure to head over the blog today.

Have a great weekend.
