Creative Scrappers
has been celebrating their Birthday and have hit their 100th sketch this month.I've been following Creative Scrappers for quite awhile now and i'm loving each and every one of their sketches. I am also one of the contributors to their sketch for this week and my work got featured up on their blog:) I find Creative Scrapper as one of the good source of inspiration. Do check out the post and the rest of the readers reveal here.

This is what i've done with the sketch..

I've used a mixture of Prima & Bo Bunny
Martha Steward border and butterfly punch
Cardstocks & Stickers

So how's your Friday morning been so far? Hope you are doing great and looking forward to the weekend. I know i am :) I told you i thought of doing a mini album but have not started on that yet. I've got to run some errands later in the afternoon and hopefully i can do something creative later part of the day.

I want to thank everyone for coming into my little cyber world:)
Thanks for Looking
Have a Lovely Friday

Happy Mid- Week
everyone :) How's your day been so far? hope you are doing just fine and is always staying healthy and drinking lots of water in this crazy weather of ours. I'm feeling much better but the cough is still lingering there and hopefully i will be better by the weekend. There are some yummy papers in store but I just couldn't bring myself to go there yet. BasicGrey have come up with many more beautiful papers and i know if i'm there in our LSS (MWL) i just couldn't stop myself. Oh my goodness this is dangerous!!lol.

Ok so this time round, the Color Room has once again got us to play with very interesting colors. I've got to tell you i really love this color combo and here they are...

Color Room Palette #03

i told ya
the colors are so interesting

And here's my interpretation..
instead of doing a page, i made a card instead
Saj felt in love with this when she saw it :)

When i did this, my first thought was that this card would be perfect for a
Mum, since Mother's Day is also around the corner :)
Anyways, we shall see or maybe i should keep this for myself :)

So this is my latest card and i think i will be doing mini album sometime this week (hopefully) the mojo get me going.
Hope you are happy scrapping
I've got a class to teach this evening

Handbag Mini Album

hope you have a great great Wednesday :)
Thanks for coming by
See you soon

Not a very good morning...:(
I'm down with flu and a very bad throat infection. It's hurting so much, i can't even drink water!!!
I'm coughing like crazy and that's the reason why i've not been blogging..
However, if i'm better later, i will come back here again if not i should be back by mid week.
In the meantime, please take care and have a great Monday.

Ranger - Distress Crackle Paint (Walnut Stain)
Ranger - Distress Ink (Pumice Stone)
Glimmer Mist - Olive Green & Burnt Red
Sizzix Die Cut

A simple card

Add a dash of green for some zest for the card...
Did some tearing here instead of the scissors for a little rugged look :)

Ok enough of MME's.......
and here is another page i did for the challenge up at the
Color Room
Palette #2

Did you see that? The colors are so so soothing and my first thought when i saw this was "this is definitely going to be a boy page" For one reason or other, the colors are so suitable for man boy page. This is really cool and this is what I've just completed....

my little man

For this i used lots of cardstocks and G.C.D Collection.
That's so much i can share on my scrapbooking side........

Back to my daily... so you must be wondering where on earth have i gone since my last post last Wednesday:0 lol... i'm not missing, i'm still alive and doing fine it's just that Saj was sick last week and is still in the recovering mode. Thank God, she is much much better now. Her birthday is just round the corner and there will be a little celebration for her this week :) We spend our Saturday afternoon at Abhi's school for his concert. Concert theme was a Healthy Lifestyle. They were asked to do a small performance on stage and here he is...

They sang few songs and one of those if i can still remember correctly goes like this...
I want to teach the world to eat
a healthy balanced meal......

Did you see those white T-shirt that they were wearing?.
Well they actually drew those pictures for their own T-shirt themselves. How cute i thought. Masterpiece huh.

Last Saturday was also my Wedding Anniversary and i got this from Hub...

I'm not an expensive or branded Momma. I always tell Hub that I am a simple girl and I'm not demanding either.
Give me scrapbooking supplies and I will be on top of the
Anyways, Hub got us a pair of rose gold ring and it's engraved with our name.
Oh my goodness.. what else could i ask for, except that God bless us and come what may, let us be together for many more years to come. God Willing...

Ok i think today's post is a super duper long.
I want to take this opportunity to thank those who visit my blog and got inspired by my work of art. Thank you so know who you are :)
Take Care Always
Love You

Recipe Challenge
over at Paper Poppy Kit Co. Yes, this month challenge is a recipe. A dash of this and a dash of that, but with a scrappy twist. Your layout must include the following :-
1) use the colors black and white
2) use a music symbol
3) use song lyrics in your title

And this is my take and i really like this one....

One Love

So what are you waiting for? Let's give this a try and once you're done, don't forget to add it into the Mister Linky Magical Widgets :)

And this is another simple page i did.
Just trying a different style and i think i kind of like this too.

I used my sewing machine and sew on the paper.
This took me a while because i was trying to coordinate the paper and i'm so happy
that it turned out just nice :)

So how's your mid week so far?
Hope you have a fine Wednesday :)

New Challenge Site...
The Color Room. Yes and this is a very interesting site. You have to drop by to believe. Each week over at the Color Room, there will be a color inspiration palette, just like this below....

This will compromise of an image and four separate colors based on that image. A sketch will accompany each week's challenge which is optional to use. There will be a monthly drawing of RAK's donated by their generous sponsors as well as the design team. This is their #01 Challenge and their color palettes are so without much hesitation, i decided to give this a GO... and
This is my take...

I'm really loving the soft colors here. Very sweet especially the paper. I used Girls Paperie and I really can't get enough of this paper. I went back to our LSS and it was all gone :( This was my last piece so i have to make the page look as pretty as the paper. lol. Hope i'm not being vain....
I enjoyed doing this and cannot wait for their #02 Challenge. Do visit the Color Room and be inspired by the beautiful takes over there.

This is another page i did. That's my friend's son Keeven, when he was a baby....
I simply love the clean look of this page....
Here it is...

If you can see.. i'm crazy over this Martha Steward butterfly Practically on every page there will butterflies on it.
Wonder when i will stop punching? :0
Anyways.. how's your day today ? My day is pretty ok except that i'm nursing my little big baby girl at the moment. She's been sick and down with fever and sore throat since Sunday. Believe me this is the longest mc any doctor can give. She got 4 days mc altogether and will only be back to school this Friday.
Very long sick leave...... My poor girl....

Ok,hope whatever you are doing, you are doing it great.
Stay Healthy & Happy Always

Urge for coffee...
suddenly i feel like having a steaming cup of coffee. I'm not a coffee person but for whatever reason i'm craving for one now. Maybe it's the weather, it's kind of dark and it's raining small at the moment. I'm listening to my all time favorite Class 95 FM and with the wonderful music playing behind, the beautiful weather, what else can I ask for now....Life is good...

Hmm let's indulge...

It feels good....
Hey, i do make good cup of coffee ok:) Wink
My Hub is an expert when it comes to coffee, sometimes when i'm feeling lazy i would just make the three in one for him and instantly after a sip he would know and than he goes on saying, "Don't ever make me a three in one again!"And than he will give me one kind of look and that will always make me laugh. I guess you can't trick a coffeholic like him.

My dearest dearest daughter will be a teenager soon. Yes she will be turning 13 and how i wish time could stand still. She's growing and is growing up fast. I remember having her in my arms 13 years ago. My girl is becoming a lady and she is always telling me that i'm her inspiration. How sweet:) Here's something i've just completed for her birthday gift. It will be another two weeks before her birthday and i'm sure when she reads this post, she will be like dying to know what i've done for her. On that note, i can't reveal it yet but here's a sneak.

Something red... something green
Burnt Red & Olive Green
Something misty...
something something....

Trust me, she will be begging to know what it is, but sorry Saj, you've got to wait girl. lol
Btw she will be home late today. Schools ends only at 7.30pm. Will have to fetch her later.
How's your Friday been so far?
Whatever you are doing, have a great one.

My Precious
my Pride & Joy... Yes i'm so proud of her. I've been receiving lots of positive compliments about her and as always she makes me proud. You go girl and remember I'm always here for you :) I did this page for Liz Qualman's sketch over at Paper Poppy Kit Co. She is on the Design Team there and she has come up with this wonderful sketch to play along this month. I told ya, i'm always inspired with Liz's sketch and here's mine..

My Precious My Pride & Joy

I love circles, and when i saw this sketch i just knew that i have to give it a go..
Thanks Liz and Congrats on being the DT over at Paper Poppy :)

with cards. I've been doing about 60 cards these past two days. Yes you heard it right...60 cards and another 100ish to go... Wow am i crazy or what? You must be wondering whatever for on earth is she doing cards after cards? Well actually I'm doing this for charity. This is to help raise fund for Saj's school PRIME project. We can't afford in monetary ways, so i thought, if i can help by making cards to help in whichever way i can to help raise fund, it will only make me feel better. These are some of them here and in a way it helps me to clear up my stash. Good reason to buy more when supply is It's more like an ATC.

So you see i've been drowning myself with cards and even when i go to bed, it's on my mind.
Now am i obsessed or what?
But than again, i'm happy doing these cards s so why not?
Every drop makes an ocean

Set of Cards
i've always wanted to do. I simply love these.I made late last night and i managed to make three cards from the same cardstock. I used white as my base and i cut little rectangle from the Girl Paperie and Bo Bunny patterned paper. Of course there must be flowers so i choose white Prima and glimmered mist with Burnt Red and Dazzling Diamond. I than played with the shimmerz Blingz and i'm enjoying my butterfly punches here so much.

Here they are...
my set of cards

And here are the individual...

I also made these notebooks yesterday. I used cardboard and patterned papers. I embellished it for final touch. Saj really love it so much and wants them for herself. Today i'm going to teach her how to do one just for her. I didn't know that making a notebook can be so easy. Sometimes you just have to give yourself a change from doing layouts everyday to making cards, altered projects or doing minis or even a notebook. Once you are a scrapper, everything else will easily come your way. You just need that creative juice flowing. Wink

Come let's take a look at my notebook.
I'm not a pro but at least i tried and I'm happy with it :)

I used metal index tabs for this notebook and turned it into a little hinge...

I don't think i will ever use this notebook, maybe i will just display it.
Saj was suggesting that i use this for my to-do-list notebook.
Still deciding, i'm not sure, i think its too pretty to use.

Hope your have a great start to your Friday
and have a Good Friday everyone....

It's ME time
now and I'm sitting here all alone watching the heavy downpour. It feels good to see some rain and I'm missing my Hub. He's gone away for a business trip and hope whatever he's doing he's doing it just fine:) Ok so I'm sitting here and blogging and at the same time thinking about life. My own life as it is? I'm trying to visualise the reflective of my life, the good and the bad and of course whatever good that has happened I'm very thankful for each and everyone of them. I also have my shares of the not good things that happened and are still happening around me and I'm sure it will keep on going because like i said before, there are always PEOPLE out there that like to bad mouth you, criticize, judge, decide for you and whatever nots, you name it, they are there like a hungry tiger ready to pounce on you! Sometimes, i wonder why can't people just mind their own business and live their life to the fullest instead of probing into other peoples' matter. Why oh why and I will still be wondering. On the good side, if i were to think again, the negative sources that has been coming my way, has helped me in one way or other build up my character to a different level and made me a much stronger person. For this i repeatedly thank God for giving me the strength and courage to face challenges in life. I also thank Him for protecting me and for guiding me and for helping and giving me the ability to forgive everyone everything. Life is too short to have enemies. The concept of forgiveness is a challenging one, especially when you think in terms of forgiving the person whom you are upset with. Forgiveness is a very personal inner task. It's not about telling the person or offering to them, infact it's not necessary to make the person know that he or she has your forgiveness. Instead it's about opening your heart and mind from resentment and hatred you feel. We've all had experience of deluding ourselves into thinking that evil thoughts give us some sort of revenge. The truth of the matter is, that when we feed these kind of thoughts and emotions, they do nothing than lock us into an unhealthy state of mind. When you are able to Forgive, you give yourself peace of mind, you can go about your life with feeling of serenity and gratitude again. Sometimes it's sad to say that your own family members can be seen not talking to one another for decades or even more. There are hatred for each other in their eyes. Love does not exist in their dictionary. All they have are egos and they feel that they can conquer this world with their "power". I thank God that my family evolves only the four of us. it's just my Dearie Hub, my wonderful daughter and son and of course myself. I have distance myself from people i once called siblings. I'm very happy with they way i'm living my life now. I careless. Just a food for thought, if own siblings can have hatred, jealousy, the attitude of I can't see you better than me coz the best is only mine and even back stabbing each other ? I wonder what do they mean when they said that Blood is thicker than water. I disagree because there are so much hatred with each other even till death do them part. They cannot forgive one another because they think that life is forever. They forgot the fact that tomorrow may not come. And it will be too late before you can even say Goodbye.....

Sorry it's kind of a boring photos
just my random thought
Have a great afternoon
