Keep Calm, It is Monday

Recently, some friendship problem has hit me quite badly and I am struggling to come terms with it. I cant believe that at this stage in my life, I have to deal with this. But as the saying goes...

"When someone leaves you, let them go and know that it doesnt mean it's just a bad thing. It just means that their part in the story of you life is over. Your story goes on.."

I will be alright. I will come to terms with it. Even if 10 years was a long time, it is all part of God's will. (:


On a lighter note, I am here to share some of my posts from the Crate Paper's blog. First up, I did a Crate DIY post on how I made these lovely bottles below. Be sure to check the post HERE

Up next, the August Creative Weekly Challenge is finally out. Be sure to check this link for details. This month is truly an inspiring challenge and I was so glad that I pushed myself creatively...

A short description for this month's challenge..
"Since this month's CW is all about trends, what's more suiting than creating a layout combining navy blue and sequins with another hot trend in the market; triangles! There have been a growing number of these trendy layouts recently and I, myself was truly inspired to join in on the trend wagon!
First, I die cut the triangles from navy blue patterned paper and vellum. I filled the vellum triangles with an assortment of sequins and sealed them tight. Next, I arranged these triangles across the page until I was satisfied. To make these triangles stand-up a little more, I stitched the vellum pockets and added sequins to the bolder navy blue triangles.

I once read that triangles symbolized growth. This sums up my niece, the girl in my photos; fearless, free-willed and full of life! Playing at the playground happens to be her forte, too. It's truly a joy seeing her grow into the child that she is."

Be sure to check out and participate along. I cant wait to see what everyone comes up with. 
Keep Calm, we survive Monday!
