A Wedding

Well a layout of our wedding day anyway =)

Using the gorgeous, gorgeous Prima Almanac papers and embellishments along with some papers from G45's Le Romantique. They go quite well together.

I also used this sketch as my layout base.

Our wedding took place on my birthday in 2009. In our culture, the 'bersanding' is the grandest of all the usual three events (yes you read that right and it was super tiring!) - although being treated like a celebrity was kinda fun...for a while LOL

See you again soon!

Scrap scrap scrap

Hi everyone!

I've been productive. Since it was National Scrapbook Day in the US, me and my friends (back in Brunei) thought it would be fun to have an online crop! We usually do this back home since with work and what not it's quite hard to gather everyone at the same time.

So it was set, I was the hostess last night and hosted the crop for 3 hours. We had one challenge per hour. Brunei time 8-11pm while I joined in from here from 1-4pm. Vast time difference but we had loads of fun!

I didn't manage to scrap all the challenges set yet but I did start today with one.

The first challenge was a 'random photo pick'. No cheating! LOL Pick a photo from a stack of photos or let someone from your family pick one for you.

Here's what I came up with.

I don't know what happened but I probably had just the perfect amount of light on my photo because I do say it looks awesome! LOL

A lot of feedback from this challenge was that most of us picked a photo that we wouldn't immediately scrap but since we had to, we did!

I used the luscious MME products from Creative Craft World and finally got to use this cute bike button (handmade!) from Susibee. You can get them here and here.

Hope you had a lovely day.

It's STILL glooy where we are but I'm not complaning. I got some scrapping done!

Now off to scrap some more!

Time for May's Scrap Map


Hope the long weekend brings some sunshine or at least more scrapping time for me whee!

Sue has created this sketch for us to play with.

I came up with this layout (rotated the sketch) using the ever so gorgeous Amerian Crafts, Dear Lizzy Neapolitan collection (one of my absolute fave this year!)

No there's nothing wrong with the screen, the photos did capture the sunshine on that one sunny but very cold weekend a few weeks back! Decided to take out little one to the park and have a go with some bubbles! Lots of fun!

Hope you come and join us for the Scrap Map!

Do visit here for more inspiration from our DT and GDT!

See you soon!

Itty bitty cards

I made some today using some reaaaallllyyy old stickers from American Crafts which I still love.

They turned out kinda cute and did cheer up the gloominess that is the weather today.

I've been feeling tired lately since my son hasn't been taking his afternoon naps!

The good thing out of that is he sleeps a little early at night, if you can call 830pm early.

I also made a retro looking card using some washi tape I got from Lou at CCW.

Hope you like! I'll be back soon with some layouts.
