Hello all, it has been a long time since i have blogged. We are into the third week of school and i am so glad that we have the long weekend to enjoy our CNY celebrations. It was great starting this week with a lovely surprise from OnceUponASketch.

I won the Jan 1st Challenge and hence, i was given the lovely opportunity to Guest Design for them for the whole month of Feburary. I cant wait to show you guys on what i have designed for them. Maybe a litle sneak peak will do?

Do watch out for this space right here when the next challenge comes out. Do check out their blog also. I am so in love with the ideas of using sketches for inspiration.Haha, as you can see.. i am still very much in love with the farmhouse collection. I have never been that mad for one collection before.

To all my Chinese friends, have a great New Year ahead!

was a day of destashing and reorganizing... i am so tired just thinking of how much work i have done.

But seriously.. How do you guys store your layouts?

I have to admit that my layouts have grown in layers and they are so hard to store. I literally had to pull out all of them from its original album and stack them up one by one.

Maybe i should just leave this cubicle solely for extra layered layouts. Do share if you guys have any tips? In any case, i outdid myself for the year 2011. These were the number of layouts i scrapped for the year. Looking at all of them makes me uber happy! It means that i have USED my stash well. (:

Okay Happy Monday Ahead! (:

Week 2

Making another post for this week.. i guess one of my resolutions would be to blog more regulary. Hahah. Week 1 is over and i am so glad that this weekend was a time to catch up with sleep, time with family members and to do a little scrapping in between. In any case, i am still pretty apprehensive with my new classes. It is like starting all over again and sometimes u just need to trust that you will come to love the classes you teach.

Okay, here is bringing you a layout for this week. i squeezed in precious time to complete this layout and i am so glad i finally started using my prima flowers again. With the new CHA coming and knowing that flowers are one of my weaknesses, i just needed to clear them. This is also done for this New Year's challenge for Once upon a Sketch.

This layout is about reminiscing on feelings for NYE.. "We used to meet at the playground, play with fire crackers and to countdown towards the New Year back in those days.."

Argh, i miss the old days of being young. Haha. In any case, i will be turning a year older in two days time.

Its going to be a quiet bday this year, with a regular school day, meetings thereafter and probably a small celebration with the family at night. I hope you have an awesome week ahead. :D

the new year

Wow, it is my first post for 2012. Today was the first day of school and it was really tiring. But it was good to see familiar faces, even the kids.. I hope this would be the start of a good year. I thought i would drop by to share my first layout for 2012. I figured that i should scrap more before the work piles up or considering that CHA Winter is coming up.

Here is to share a layout on my New Year's resolution. I thought the focus would be on family resolutions.. I am so glad that i have finally used up the polaroids my sister and i took in Dec. This layout was also done for the Get Picky Dec Inspiration Challenge #15

Sharing what the journalling reads .. " in 2012, i want to be a better daugther, to learn to forgive and forget, to love and to hold the people around me, to cherish the everyday moments, to take more initiatives to help around the house and to draw closer to God."

I am glad i chosed to use OA's farmhouse for this layout. Plently of old vintage family papers and embellishments to play along. Still very much in love with this collection and i can bet the next few layouts will be using this collection. (:

I will stop here for now.. Have a great week ahead. The weekends will be here before we know it! :D
