juanna's going into mugging mode.

okay! my final final paper for my degree in social work's going to be next friday! so i will be missing in action for abit until exam's over. but i've got lots of plans, ideas, inspirations to scrap, alter, make etc etc!

was over at made with love's national scrapbooking day fun fair and i got myself a whole lots of materials- patterned paper, prima blooms, thickers, distress inks, crackle paint in picket fence and a new pair of non stick blade craft scissors! all these stash at great discounts. and i went home and realise i forgot to use my birthday month discount ): BUT i will be back there again to use the discounts! yes i will ;p just got to think about what i should use my discounts and a made with love $20 voucher on? crop-a-dile big bite? a new paper cutter? (my current one's failing me. can't do straight cuts? the horror!) got a bit more time to think this through before May ends ya? targetting a scrap class in June and another in July. this is called post-exams celebration!

got my hands on some good deals. bought over a few alterables from Lia's blog- a 12x12 canvas, a maya road airmail mail box and 3 cheeseboards. i have a picket fence chipboard album, a small birdcage and a typo frame yet to be "meddled" with. gah. okay, promise i will do something about them okay! (:

i will be back soon! i have more to share but that will have to wait, healthcare exam paper here i come! (: God bless all!

one more post before the night ends!

one more post before monday arrives. wish the weekends were longer though ): my cousin celebrated her 21st over the weekends and i was given the role of doing up the guestbook! i used alot of pink paislee soiree collection for the book! bought the maya road 8 x 8 album and altered it. i had so much fun!










for the inside pages, i managed to clear quite a bit of last season's papers from fancy pants, october afternoon, AC etc. used flowers from Prima, blings from Zva, the frame from making memories and of course from netting from a craftshop in AMK that sells cloth, buttons and all the sewing whatnots! (:

awhile back i also made a frame for a friend's solemnization.


am very happy for her and I pray that her marriage will be a very blessed one (:

have a good night's rest everyone! 

MWL's Set, Scrap & Go Challenge #1 by Wendy Kwok!

MWL launched a new scrap challenge! When I first got wind of it via the blog, I was really excited because I have never particiapted in one and I really wanted to have a go for the fun of it ;p

So Wendy's challenge is to scrap about an object, a thing etc as long there isnt a face in the photo. I picked a photo of our 1 year anniversary's promise rings. I wanted the layout to mean something for me so I thought this photo was the most apt in my case. (: I can't think of anything more important than these rings. they aren't costly or anything but they are much treasured and precious in our relationship. its coming 3 years now in June 2011 and i thank God for my boyfriend. he makes so much difference to my life since his appearance through a food ration distribution prog where he was then the volunteer and i the coordinator for my ctr. blessed (:

so here's my take for the challenge!






Thank you for dropping by! (:

baking & food photography.

as the final exam nears, i'm getting really excited of the amount of time i'm going to have to finally do the things i want to do but have no time! that includes, cooking/baking, guitar playing (my guitar's collecting dust now, need some serious polishing!), bible study classes, outreach work (thinking of organizing some ad hoc projects for interested friends to join me. think painting orphanges, carolling in a hospital etc) and most importantly scrapping!!!

scrapping will branch out to participating in MWL's challenges (so so excited! i've never joined one, so this will be a first.), trying for calls (for the fun of it, still a long way to go for me, so much to learn hehe) and just scrapping because i love doing it so much! speaking of which. anyone has any idea what's a good storage method for LOs? am considering albums but they are pretty bulky. until i get my own place in 4 yrs time, don't think my sister would be too keen for albums to be all ard in our shared bedroom haha.

okay so yesterday night, after visiting all the scrappy sites as i would normally do everyday, i chanced upon a food photography blog. This lady's really talented and she got me all inspired! both in cooking/photography hehe. so from this photography blog, i recalled a blog i've stopped visiting for awhile another Singaporean who cooks/bakes really well, has lovely food photos for your viewing pleasure and so much more of her insights to food and her adventures. so these will be my regular lovely reads on top of the few links i've shared on my right sidebar (: let me know if you have other reading recommendations!

currently working on my cousin's 21st birthday guestbook. will be back with some peek-tures! after this sat (:

And yes, congrats to Made with Love on their up and coming new outlet in Indonesia! awesome ya! (;

God bless your week! am currently hooked on two korean-australian twins, Janice & Sonia's singing. ;p
