Rejuvenating the Scrapbooker in Me!

Have you ever felt burnt out scrapbooking? Or have you wished you could scrap all day long and yet couldn’t find even a minute in an entire week! Capturing just one moment to pull out your supplies, spread them across the table and let your creative juices flow sometimes feels like such a chore.

I wonder how many other scrappers have felt the same. It seems I went an entire week trying to find just one half hour to work on my album and couldn’t find even half a minute! Before I knew it, a week had passed and I hadn’t even opened my album.

Even worse, I’ve been so busy with administrative tasks for Scrappingglitz that I’d been putting off for so long, they piled higher than my desk could handle. So although I was working in “scrapbooking,” I wasn’t actually scrappin’ anything.

Now, I’ve got that scrapper’s itch.

So, I’ve decided that I need to remove myself from all my daily chores and just relax at my mom's place breathe the fresh air and find that scrapper in me.

Then I’m going to race home, pull out some supplies and start scrappin’. It’s time to hit the reset button and get some new layouts going which i did. Yeay! I scrapped my mom's picture when she was in her 20's. How lovely! Using SG latest stash from Basic Grey called Wisteria

Girls and Pretty Things

I started shopping for my baby girl and i was very excited to see what's out there. OMG ....all of them are so pretty and lovely just like my scrap stuff. All this while my eyes was only pointing at the boys...but now i can expand my spending horizons! I surely need to make a list what i need to buy before my eyes gets even bigger. Hehe...

Call me crazy but thats me!

I finished this LO at 3am! Its so hard for me to say no to the new Lime Rickey from Basic Grey. Colors are really bright and i have this 3 lovely pictures from my family outing. I love this range of a collection full of colors and flavors. Dazzling colors like cherry soda red, candy apple green, lemon-drop and blue raspberry sweeten the kaleidoscope of yummy patterns.
I took this sketch from 52 Sketches 52 Weeks .

The Best Day

I consider this very day as the best day for words can actually describe how proud I am as his mom. Me and hubby decided to transfer Qawiem to proper Prep School from his play school. We're worried at first...whether he can actually adjust & adapt himself to new environment, friends,etc. But Qawiem being Qawiem...he enjoys from the very first day till now...he will come back home with a big smile on his face. Now I know he likes it there....

I'm a scrapping Maniac!

I cannot really recall when was the last time I scrapped my husband's pic....hehe....bad wife. This time I feel that I need to do this for him. After a major chaos in my room, I managed to come up with this idea after been inspired by Scrapperlicious of her distressing with punches techniques. This is genius! Love it!

Also I was dying to play with the latest G45 papers! It took me the whole of Sunday to do it. Qawiem got really bored of me....Mama...why u are always scrapping???? I want you Mama....aaaahh so sweet of him! Sorrie dear , mama got little crazy with scrapping lately...ayah just bought mama a huge stash! Thank you so much bie!

I'm off to physio session again tomorrow...sigh!

U & Me

This picture was taken when Zharif was about 11 months old and I just came back from work. Do I miss working in the office? actually.... I love being at home ...with the kids and my cluttered scrap room. Hehe...I had a lot of fun creating this page... I love the bright bird and the is actually a wrapping paper from a company called AEIOU. Such a lovely paper.

Few Layouts to Share

This is what I've been working on the past couple of days. I felt bad a little that its been a long time since I scrapped my kids picture. I have so many of their will be totally insane to scrap everything. Also I find it hard too to scrap a very clean layout. I think I identify to a messy scrapper...the messier it looks..the more I feel satisfied. This time I'm trying to stay as clean as possible.Believe me it is hard but I kinda like the outcome.

Other than that, really nothing exciting. My back pain is really killing me...started my physio session at Prince Court and I really hope it will help a bit.

I'm still hooked up to 3D layouts....a pic of my niece when she was about a year plus.

This is Zharif @ 3 months...hmm...missing all the moments..
Qawiem @ 2 months

I love you Mom!

This week theme is Mother's Day.

I have one or two stamps that fit that description but like to 'pretty' them up. This time i was busy playing with distress ink, bleach and i keep mixing them up to come with this cards. This will be the upcoming class for SG. I have yet to have time to write the instructions but that should be my to do list.

Since Mother's Day is coming...i found this nice poem and i dedicated to my dearie mom.

Mom's smiles can brighten any moment,
Mom's hugs put joy in all our days,
Mom's love will stay with us forever
and touch our lives in precious ways...

The values you've taught,
the care you've given,
and the wonderful love you've shown,
have enriched my life
in more ways than I can count.

I Love you Mom!

P/S: I make another card...i got too excited with the bleach and i could not stop!

Hope you like the cards!

No place like my scrapping room....

Time does fly, doesn't it? Can't believe that Mother's Day is coming...and so does National Scrapbooking Day. Wasn't it just April?

Anyway. Despite the insane heat here in the city, I have been pretty busy. See?

Layouts after Layouts....canvas too... The urge to scrap was pretty overwhelming. It was nice to scrap something just for me, with no deadlines or set product to use. My scrap table is in huge's been a week...there is always work in progress. I just love my scrapping room....i can really spend hours here!
