December 16 Challenge @ The Studio Scrapbook 101

I decided to give this Challenge a shot...since that i have my kids pictures with Santa Claus and i do not have to use Christmas Paper...i find this rather interesting. We are all very used to using Christmas Paper for Christmas photo...this challenge will definitely give you a twist. You can check out some inspiration from their DTs here. The requirement to this challenge is:

  1. It wouldn’t be right without a little bit of Christmas spirit (just a little bit!), so make a Christmas layout without using Christmas themed papers or embellishments
  2. Use only 1 photo
  3. You can not use alphabet stickers. (You may stamp, hand cut, etc.)
Here is my take....hope u like it. Anyway...Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Challenge @ The Studio Scrapbook 101

I found this fun community called The Studio Scrapbook 101 and hey ... this place is quite interesting to join. They have blog, forum, classroom, etc. They are quite active and they do have very fascinating and popular scrapper to host tutorial or even challenges. I decided to join their 1 December Challenge hosted by well known scrapper Ingvild Bolme. What is she asking for is ...
  1. Your layout should be based on the theme of childhood – it can be your own or someone elses.
  2. Use a frame of some kind in the design of your layout
  3. Use layers – can be paper, ribbon, whatever you like, but layer it up!
So i took up the challenge and this is what i make.

Little Genius

The love of my life, Zharif is the middle child of our family. As mom, I have often poo pooed the idea of the very existance of "middle child syndrome". However since Tihany was born, he seems to be showing lots of tantrums but thankfully he has slow down now. I was having a chat with his school teacher the other day and she was mentioning how Zharif would always wants to be notice. He wants attention!

As much as i tried to be fair to my 3 kids sometimes i slip away. Maybe i was giving too much to Qawiem and he noticed. I might be feeding Tihany and he wants me to read to him. The rejection on his face.... the looks...ohhh really breaks my heart. How on earth do i give out fairly? Maybe somebody might have a solution to this....coz sometimes i'm clueless!

This photos of Zharif was taken at Christmas party last week at his school. He's constantly wants to do everything to just impress me....Like showing me how he can join together the puzzle.He was holding my hands all the time. Oh Zharif...even you didn't impress me...mama will always be proud of you. I love you so dearly!

Tihany First Mini Album & A Layout

I actually finished this album maybe about a month ago and just realised that i forgot to blog about it. I try to run away from the usual pink color for baby girl instead i used green and brown. But i felt the album wasn't complete as the pictures i took for Tihany was a bit blur and it doesn't turned out great. That is because i've stop taking pictures and somehow i think i have lost my touch. That is something i should improve for the coming new year. Wow, new year is approaching very soon and so much has happen this year. I'm sure it works the same for all of you. We might achieved what we wanted to but maybe we don't like me!! LOL. Lets see what this new year will bring ... whether i can finish what i intend to.

I finished another layout of Tihany ....i love how she looks like in her hat. At first i thought i should use this for a sketch challenge but last minute i change my mind. I bought lots of new pattern paper and i just go crazy ...don't know which want to choose. So typical of me...fickle!

Well that is about it for today.

I have a few more creations yet to share, hopefully I will be back soon to share.

Have a great week!

Number 1 Fun Sister

Scrap It Lah's December Challenge is kinda fun to play with. Their DT Yati has come out with a combo of 3 ideas to be composed into a layout. Her main ideas was:

You are to make a layout or any project incorporating:

1) Something Green and

2) Using Black and White Photo(s) which means single or multiple photos

3) To include a quote in the layout or other projects.

Here i'm sharing my take for the challenge. I've used the Kaiser - Mumma Bushka Paper. It was Kaiser previous collection which i've been keeping it for quite a while. Now with Tihany around, i have a reason to use it. I love this picture of her...she's now in her smiling mood...and she smiles all the time. When i breastfeed her, she will stop in between feeding and just look at me with a smile. She's sooo adorable!

First Ever Siblings Picture and 2 Other Projects

It was never easy to snap picture of my 3 kids. Its always hard to find the right moments. Finally 2 days ago...the mood was right and the boys don't mind standing next to their sister. As fast as i can, i just grab my camera and voila ..the first ever sibling picture for mama to scrap! I decided to make it as cheerful and fresh layout. I like the way it turn out to be...i must say something different from me.

As for DT work...i'm still busy creating for Nikki Sivils and Scrap The Boys. We are all busy creating projects for upcoming Christmas seasons. I just love Christmas even though i don't celebrate them.

Here is my latest mini album for Nikki..

And also a layout cum altered art for latest Scrap The Boys Challenge...

2 layouts and i'm done for today

I was up since 5am and been scrapping all morning. Call me crazy but i was out from my scrapbooking world for the past 10 days since the kids got sick. But now they are better and i just can't wait to get started. A little bird told me that MME is having a great challenge over at their blog. It is based on a sketch and participants are required to used at least 80% of their products. My latest purchase was few papers from MME so i thought i just give it a shot. This is my take.

Since my kids got sick i spend most of time at my mom's house. I had a chance to look thru some old stuff and i found a picture of me and brother. I think i was about 3-4 years old. I must say that he has been a good brother. I always get whatever i want since i was little and there is no slight jealous in him. He will always give ways and sacrifice so much for me. I know i never say this....i do love u k...hehehe. I decided to use the Scarlet Lime Kit - October Collection. The colors are just awesome and i really fell in love with the kit!

How To Define Beauty?

My angel is now 2 months old and she looks beautiful every single day! That is so hard to believe. She is just an amazing baby! Her world is now full of smiles, holding up her head, and started drooling a little bit. She's now weighing 5.1kg ... good signs that she is growing well. She sleeps well at night and only wakes up for about 2 times. Her smiles really melt my heart. She has a big smile especially after leaving her for few hours with my mom or maid....the moment she sees me....that smile will just make my day. She makes lot of noises and coos. She can lift her head a little and chest up while lying in her stomach. The best thing is when she looks at you as if she knows what’s going on. My tiny little baby is now paying more attention to this world.

My christmas starts in August

I received an email saying that is ok to use the latest Christmas collection from Nikki Sivils. The problem is i do not celebrate them and i don't have any related pictures at all. Something came up to my mind and i twist it a little bit and holla....this is what came out from me...

The papers are really different from the usual Christmas papers i see. Colors are very bright....and are sooo cute. I fall in love with the little elf!

I also did anothert layout of Zharif. Its been a while since i did techniques layout. I love the this color combo...the teal and looks really nice when you put everything together. It blends really well.

Have a good weekend...TFL.
