a whirlwind of activities

I managed to catch my breath from the busy-ness to blog proper. I really need to work out some kind of blogging plan, just like Elise Blaha. She is really my daily inspiration!

Since the start of SBM (Scrapbook Market Grp), I have come to know some really lovely friends who loves crafting as much as I do. I had the opportunity to join my first ATC swap (this will come as a seperate post when I receive all the ATCs from Jie Ying (: ), I got to meet these scrappers face to face during meetups to buy or sell, I got to join another handmade swap organized by Jean from Jean Stitch and definitely gotten some really good deals off the group. These wonderful people encouraged and motivated me to scrap, to keep going even when my mojo's low.
So I shall let some lovely photos do the talking. Pretty overdued but better late than never sometimes yeah? (:

(Coasters by Jean to me! Photo taken from Jean Stitch's facebook. Do visit her online shop for more of these lovely handmade goodness. She does bags, book covers, purses etc! really talented!)


Valentine's Day was also yet another lovely affair that I should have taken time to share. It deserves a post of its own and I will do one really soon! But wanted to take the chance to thank my dearest for making this year's extra special. He surprised me by taking me to one of the best musical experience- Wicked! We enjoyed ourselves so much. Thankful for how God has brought him into my life. (:

My sunshine!

God bless your weekends!

A layout for Mr Ng + Scrap with V's Feb Inspiration Challenge.

Hi all, am back with two recent layouts done. One for my boyfriend for Christmas and another for Scrap with V's latest February Inspiration Challenge!

I really enjoyed doing this burst effect! I find it very energetic and vibrant, definitely one of my
favourites LO so far. I used a mixture of AC patterned papers and some hambly overlays here.


This layout uses mostly Echo Park's Victoria Garden. It is by far one of my favourite line by EP. I love the blooms especially. Fussy cutting them out is such a joy. I have some left for other projects hehe.
Did this layout for DT Scrap with V's February Inspiration Challenge. Do join us and stand to win delicious scrappy goodies!

Here's the inspirational photo found on Pinterest via


And here's my take:

Please share it with us by sending the completed layout to Submission closes at midnight 29th February 2012.

How have you been inspired lately? Pinterest has been doing wonders for me! I am picking up from where I left and feeling more positive as I move along in this first quarter of the year. I thank God and also the lovely people God has sent my way to encourage me in my trials. Also want to thank Melissa, a scrappy friend I got to know over facebook. Although we only met once briefly and spoke over messages, I thank God for sending you to minister to me when I was feeling low about my health. I appreciate your friendship very much, just wanted to tell you that. (:

Do pray for me as I am going for my hospital review on the 7 February, 9.40am. Do pray that I do not have anything major that I should fret about and that what ever discomfort I may still have will go away. I need peace of mind from Him. Thanks in advance! (: God bless your week and enjoy the weekends!
