Keep Calm & Hang On!

Haze is going wild in our tiny Singapore. The whole island has been swallowed by smoky fumes and we are getting cranky. N95 masks are sold out almost everywhere, thank God for the second last box at cold storage. Work still goes on and its basically a torture to even step out of home.

Passed by the central business district yesterday. The tall office buildings, Marina Bay Sands, the hotels; they are no longer visible.
This is how the area near my workplace looks like. Gloomy and hazy:

Keep calm and hang on everyone. Mask up, lots of water and stay indoors! Praying for rain and wind. Please pray along with us wherever you may be.

Pinspiration: Triangles.

What inspires me this week: Triangles.

Love how these designs that I chance upon on Pinterest could be used on scrapbook layouts.

Purple Pumpkin's June Sketch Challenge.

Being enthusiastic as I was this month, I wanted to take part in sketch challenges again. Have always loved working with sketches and so when Jules posted about Purple Pumpkin's June challenge on Facebook, I thought why not? (:

Here's the sketch by Debbie Burns, Purple Pumpkin:

 And here's my take:

I adore the Herrington Bone pattern and I wanted to incorporate that into this layout in the background. I drew the pattern on white cardstock and painstakingly (haha! the woes of not owning a cameo) cut out the patterns using my trusty pen knife before sticking the coloured papers behind the empty cuts. I loved how it turned out and I love the colours from Dear Lizzy's papers.
It was great fun to put this layout together and I am gearing up to craft more. I'm thinking of a mini album next!
Thanks for looking! Have a blessed weekend!


Finally took time out to document some layouts! My busy schedule hasn't enabled me to catch the sunlight for pictures for awhile.

It is such a joy to be able to do what I love- crafting, creating art. I do hope that some day, hopefully soon, I can finally apply this quote "Do what you love & you never have to work a day" on myself as well.

Using some MME papers and chipboard stickers here that I have been erm.. hoarding heh. Adore those hexagon shapes!

This was done awhile back but finally took a closer shot, loving the colours and the hot air balloons here!
