For my sister, i hope she likes it :)

My altered Door Hanger

52 Sketches 52 Weeks
Sketch #47

I completed this layout in just an hour. I was suprised, maybe because i'm all geared
I simply love Julie's sketches. Thanks Julie you always inspire me.

Tomorrow will be the release of the PSLE results. I wish all those who have sat for the exams and  parents including myself who are waiting the best of luck. Will be bidding a friend goodbye at the airport later, she and her family will be leaving Singapore for good; and after that I will be meeting my girlfriend for discussion on the craft class which she wants to get it started in December. Its the school holidays, so will be tagging my two kiddos along. Hope to snap some beautiful shots in the Airport later.

That's all for now..
Got to go
See you again soon

Yes i have been having this migraine attack since Monday!! Ughh it really really hurts. It come and go and it can even attacked me in the middle of the night while i was sleeping. Yes, in the middle of the night i have to get out of bed and take painkiller. It's just one side of my head that has that throbbing pain. I wish i have a permanent remedy for that. Oh well, whatever it is, as a SAHM there's no Medical Leave right? In sickness and in health, we work 24/7 365 days a year. That's the reason i have not been posting. Now that i am a little better(just a little) i hope to post something here.

I was all choked up with tears when i was at my daughter's school this morning seeing her receiving an award. She has grown up to be a young adult. I still remember when i first held her in my arms and now she is almost my height. She has do us proud. Her teacher came up to me and congratulate me for having such a wonderful and bright daughter. She shines among others. She has that "x-factor" that will bring her far in life. She said, " You are a wonderful mom and you have such a wonderful daughter." I was all choked up. Literally i was dumbfounded for a second before sense knocked into my head again and i thank her many many time. Her class teacher said, "I have all the confidence in your girl, she will go far." Praises after praises and thank you after thank you i am so very proud of her. With that, here are some pictures i took of her and her teacher...

She was in tears while bidding some of her friends goodbye. They hugged and they walked in silence. She sang her school song with pride for the last time and that made her cry. For me after 17 years I sang the Singapore National Anthem once again. We used to do that daily when in school. I left school 17 years ago and when i heard the Anthem again within a school compound, it brought back all the memories i had when i was studying.

Ok.... so now on the scrapbooking front, i did this for Pencillines

Supplies : 
DCWV La Creme Matstack
Prima Flower
American Craft Phrase Stickers

By the way my layout was featured this week in 52 sketches 52 weeks.
This is the second time my layout got featured there.
Thanks Julie :)

Thanks For Looking Everyone

Today, she will be receiving another award for being the Head of Class Ambassador.

And here is my take...
My sister, my closest companion...

It's a Monday today and hope you are not having the Monday blues...
I wish to say a BIG BIG Thank you to my daughter Saj, for helping me with my blog skin, reformatting it and give it a new fresh look.
All credit goes to her. I'm not a computer savvy, she is and she has proven it.
Thanks Saj, love you.

Thank you so much for coming by
Have a lovely Monday

An Evening @ Orchard Road

I went down to Orchard Road last night with the hope of taking some nice photos there with the Christmas decorations and lights up.  Unfortunately, when reaching, it began to rain and i was confined in the car. Still i managed to take some shots and here they are...

Christmas light up along Orchard Road

Even though it was raining quite a bit, it still does not dampened the atmosphere there. People were walking all over enjoying the cool night. Some were busy shopping, dining, chatting, just relaxing, enjoying the view all happening along Orchard Road. Quite nice lights up and not that bad a photo taken even though the car was moving while i was snapping away. lol .

Here's a little something i did for a friend for Christmas....

World Kindness Day

Yes, today is World Kindness Day. Come lets spread a little kindness be it big or small and show that we care. Let's make World Kindness Day a meaningful and more pleasant for all....

I went to Made With Love yesterday and met some regulars there. It's nice when people know you and a simple smile can make your day. I bought some more AC patterned papers and of course Primas.  Will work on that later today.
For now here's my take on Julie's sketch over

I'm so excited...

a friend has invited me to teach craft classes in December.. I'm so thrilled and so excited and of course happy for her. Details will be announced later part of the month.. I did 6 Christmas cards yesterday but you know what?? i did not take any photos, will do that later part today and post in my next entry.

How are you today? Hope you are in the pink of health. Yesterday's Jumble Sale at my daughter's school went fantastically well. All our crafts including the cards were sold in less than 2 hours. Her stall alone collected close to 300 dollars. How cool was that? She was very happy and so do I. One of her teachers even ordered a Birthday Card which i will be doing later. 
Sometimes i wish that there are more than 24hours in a day. There are so many great challenges in blogs that i love to put my hands on but time is so short. I have so many things to catch up with, many cards and layouts to complete. I have to cook, wash the laundry, clean the house, fold the dry clothes, iron their school uniforms, wash the dishes..blah blah blah you name it, all in the name of HOUSEWIFE! but whatever it is, you have to enjoy whatever you are doing, that's what i believe in.. like this layout ....

My take for Sketch #53
Pink Sketches

I simply enjoy doing this layout... 
partly because i'm falling in love with Webster's Pages 
The butterflies are beautiful
His face is so cute...his eyes especially
Love his smile
Love my layering
Love everything

My niece is on the verge of giving birth.. Hope and pray that she will do just fine.. She is already in the hospital. Will try to see if i can visit her later part of the day today and spend some time with my sister and her. Will bring my camera of course.
In the meantime...
take care

Sunday Afternoon...

was spend doing all these with my Dear Daughter. Her school is organising Jumble Sale tomorrow and she is made in-charge for the girls in her class. I contributed my time, my paper and some of my embellishment for the sale tomorrow. The fund collected will be for the School Funds Association for students in need. Here's what we did...
Some simple cards, altered cup, some bookmarks she made herself and some handmade flowers. Other girls in her group will have their own contribution for the sale. It was fun spending our afternoon doing something for charity and hopefully she will do a good sale tomorrow. 

So how was your Sunday so far? 
I 'm sure you are enjoying every minute with your loved ones and enjoying your scrapbooking. I went to Konikuniya Bookstore at Takashimaya yesterday afternoon and bought  myself a book. I am going to read it later in the evening. I simply love Richard and Kristine Carlson book on Don't Sweat the Small Stuff. I'm currently on Richard's Don't Sweat the Small Stuff and it's all Small Stuff. It's a book on simple ways to keep the little things from overtaking your life. I'm going to love every page of his... Will share some of his advice in my next post. 

Since I've been making cards after cards i added one more into my collection. 
 Here's a Sneak Peak....

 I used a 3D stickers and ribbon.
Something yellow something orange...
maybe for someone nice, someone sweet.....

ok for now..
Have a nice Sunday evening...

One day at a time....

Yes, i'm actually taking things one day at a time, but sometimes too many things come together all of a sudden and throw challenges after challenges . But I believe, everything will fall in place and be back to normal. I have faith, everything will be ok.  I am being patient and being very optimistic at all time.  I always believe that this world is a stage and we are the performers. I have a family to take care and I never want them to be affected by me. I had "girls talk" with my daughter yesterday and we were discussing things related to life, people around us, our surroundings, the everyday life and eventually to the choices of Secondary school. I told her that i give her the freedom to pick the choices of her school and we will be behind her to decide which is best for her. My girl is growing up to be a young adult, to a certain extend i am very proud of her and her sensibility. She came home from school just the other day and said that "Mummy, my teacher said i have perfect moral values." I was truly glad to hear that. Which mother won't? I always emphasise that she must do good to others, respect and honor the eldest, be humble and be a good human being. With that statement came from her teacher, i'm sure she is proud of herself and will do us proud too. She requested that i do a layout on her yesterday and this is what i did..
For 52 sketches 52 weeks

Hi Bloggers...

Guess what?? I just stumbled upon a new stationery store called "K"rafers' Paradise. Do check them out here Believe me there are so many pretty papers and embellishment in there. So many lovely things that can be very addictive actually. "K"rafers' Paradise for scrapbooking, card-making, rubber stamping, craft punch and die cut; and to be exact, they are located at City Square Mall @ Kitchener Road. 

Ok so November is already here...and once again its time for new challenges.
For Ed's Sketch Got Stamp Challenge

Do join us in the fun ok :)

And for those who are celebrating Halloween
Happy Halloween
 Here is my another assignment for Pink Sketches

We don't really celebrate Halloween but being a DT for Pink Sketches we were asked if possible to do a Halloween layout and this was what i did. I doodled the spider web and pumpkins, dressed my two kids up for some fun. I have never done Halloween layout before and i think this turned out just fine.

It's a lovely Sunday afternoon here
the weather is just perfect
Hope you are having a great Sunday too
I'm off to scrapping
