Congratulations to Once Upon A Sketch on their 1st Anniversary. My best wishes and hope you guys have many more anniversaries to come :) Time really flies.  It's been a year since I found OUAS and even though I never get the chance to play along with all their challenges, this one site has really got me going. Thanks to Nadia Canizzo for this great inspirational site and to all her wonderful DTs, you people are just amazing..
Without further delay, I would like to share with you a page I created based on their April Challenge.
The theme this time round is HOME.
You have to create a layout and interpret the theme HOME however you like based on the following sketch.
You can journal as little or as much as you like...
This is my interpretation...
When I think of Home, I think about those that matters the most
My family is my Home
It's a Journey to Forever
Home is where it all begins

I'm finally back....
Yes! finally I'm back to the world of scrapping and getting creative once again. I have to admit that it's difficult to find it back cause the mojo has gone missing for a bit too long. However, I'm glad that I have not lost it completely. It's kind of funny thou, I sort of have to start all over again like da..... like a newbie which feels that everything that's being touch is so new and so amazingly beautiful. Anyways.....
So how are you my dearie dearie friend? A huge big shout out to Nadia Canizzo for not forgetting me and felling my absence. Nadia you are such a sweetie. I love you my friend :) Do check her out here and see for yourself what a wonderful friend I have. 
Well my first layout for 2012....yes indeed I'm very very late but better late than never right, so my first layout is all about me.
Just happy to be me @ 38

Hmm..I must say that this is not a very recent photo of mine but the thing is...I need to start scrapping somewhere and it's important that I have a photo to start with. So I saw this one and I thought ok it's not that bad a face, so I started to
A little close up here

I blurred the edges using flickr...I love the embellishment here, the lamp post the Prima flowers and the burst of red here and there..
(Shh....just to share with you, I'm running out of Prima flowers...Mr Husband, I hope you read this, it's time to go shopping.....)
Just in case you are wondering what pp I used, it's MME Lost & Found(double sided)
Now you see, since I've already started on a layout, I did not stop there, I'm in the process of doing a mini album...It's been ages since I last did one, the urge is just too strong, so here you go, 
a little sneaky peaky...

Album Title : Live your life with grace

This should be ready in a couple of days...So stay tune I'll be back I promise
If you are going to Nadia's blog, please join in the fun at OUAS as she is hosting a new challenge there for April. I'll be doing mine soon...just need to take a couple of pictures and I should be joining in the fun as well.
To those that are still following me Thank You So Much

My Dearest Friends....

First, my sincere apology for not updating my blog. For those that are still visiting this little cyber world of mine, my heartfelt thanks to each and everyone of you. I have not been myself lately, so many things has been happening and I am under so much stress and pressure.  I've been struggling the last couple of weeks with the fact that it pains me to see my mother in law in her state right now.  She has gotten worse in the last couple of weeks or so.  I can see it, everyone can see it. The doctor have personally spoke to me that she is in the stages of passing away. That is reality. On top of this, I am having some difficult time having to deal with a teenage daughter.  Than again, this is another different issue altogether. To make matter worst, I had the worst migraine attack in my life. It lasted for a couple of days before it finally decided to go away. I was literally crying in pain, holding my head and was really really terrible.
So, back to mil, we have to actually take turns to beg and cajole her to eat even if its just a spoonful it has to be done. I did not get the opportunity to see both my parents at their final stages but having to see my mother in law at this condition is really heart breaking.  I don't like seeing her bed bound most of the time being not able to walk because she is so weak.. but that is reality. I am not saying that she is dying today, tomorrow or even a week or month from now, but her health is really slowing down. Again that is reality. I'm not sure what God has in store for us, but for now,  I am taking it one day at a time. I also pray to God that whatever the journey he has planned ahead, we shall all handle it with love and grace.

To my followers my sincere apology, I hope to be back into the scrapping world real soon. But than again I'm not sure when.
For those that are visiting my blog, thank you once again.
Take Care
