Yippeee!!! The layout I did of Adah titled ‘Lil Princess’ has been chosen by Lotus Paperie as one of the 3 finalists for December’s submissions! This is the first time any of my layouts had gotten this far. Please vote for me if you think mine is the prettiest amongst the three. All you need to do is to click on the poll on the top right hard side of the blog.
Pink Gem Designs is giving away free stamps! Read about it here.
I have been blog hopping a lot since I took up scrapbooking. There are just so many challenges out there, sketches, color, stamping, theme, words, titles based….Where have I been all this time???So much nice, yummy blog candy for giveaways too, like Pink Gem’s! I think I shall start a regular RAK giveaway as soon as I have time to go through my stash. One monster or the other is always down
Ok, off now cos I hear that boy yelling for attention already…
I made a total of 4 cards over the past 3 days. Decided to take a break from scrapbooking and use my stamps instead. But I am still not too good a cardmaker yet, these being my first few attempts. I want to get my stamping technique right first.
The first card will be submitted for a Penny Black Stamping Challenge blog that I came across while blog hopping. I am always impressed by the cards that these stampping gals can come up with. I will have to put in more practice before my stamp set arrives from Simon Says Stamp. I can’t be on their design team and let them down!
The above layout is for One Little Word’s first challenge of the year and the word to work around the layout on is, of course as seen in my layout is ‘START’. I think I am a ‘greedy-for-as-many-pictures-in-my-layout-as possible’ kind of scrapper. I know sometimes less is more but all these pictures just hold so many memories and seems to tell the story for me.
I had planned on including as many of the scans I had done for Asher and to have them punched out in circles (to represent the baby in the tummy) when I came across Moments Recorded’s latest challenge! Hey hey!!! So I tried to work around the challenge requirements as well, and there you have it.
Ok, a pretty short post. Must learn to make my story short and sweet… …
Look at just how cute Asher is. The big photo shows Asher during Christmas 2008. He was only 9 months old then and was still learning to crawl on his belly then. One year later, he is now 21 months old and is attending daily school for 3 hours everyday. He is now learning to express himself more and is fast becoming a gangster. Asher put up a performance for his school’s mini Christmas concert and to our surprise, he stayed cool and calm without crying through it all, unaffected by the crowd made up of anxious and proud parents/ family of the little ones.
I always wanted to do a first year album for both Adah and Asher. Finally I am starting on the album and that was me when I was pregnant with Adah…Special thanks to Sophia who sent me some RAK (prob after reading my ramblings that I can hardly get stuff around here!) Thanks Sophia!!!
Noticed I started experimenting with more stamps in my layouts! Stamps are addictive,and they are fast burning a hole in my pocket.
