If you happened to experience the mojo-less moments, Sketch Blog is a good place to start. Sketch definitely will help you out in getting the ideas out. Since i've scrapping so much lately, i started getting bored a little bit. So i head on to few interesting sketch blog for some inspirations. Here is some my take ...

When do i tell myself to slow down??

I'm still scrapping like crazy and i seriously don't know why. I've actually develop a strong relationship with my scrapbook and i'm totally crazy over this! And today i feel really really tired but i'm still overwhelmed when i look at my new DT kit from Nikki. Check out at the end of this creations of her lovely papers.

Last week i spend 2 days creating 20 pages of 8"x 10" for a commisioned work. Phew! That was crazy. But maybe not as crazy as taking my kids out to Aquaria on Chinese New Year Day cum Valentine's Day! The queue was sooooo long and my kids got exhausted even before we went in. I make wrong judgement on the date again! Sorrie kids!!!!

Today i wanted to share what i have done for the past 1 week...

Commissioned work for a customer
Challenges at The Studio is my take. You need to scrap about the love of your life.

Birthday gift for a friend...

Lastly...what i did just now....of course the latest from Nikki Sivils..Flaming Butterfly collections. Goodness...this papers are interesting to play with. I really love the color. Her die cuts are extremely versatile.

Getting More Productive

I've been more and more productive this is much easier when i have the mojo. I can just go on and on creating LO after LO. I think my track record was 10 pages per day. That is like from morning till like midnight - scrapping non stop! Haha...

Long weekend is approaching ... the Chinese are celebrating the Chinese New Year. What year is this? the Year of the Tiger. This is what the internet has to say about this year...

The coming 2010 year of the metal Tiger is around the corner. It looks like we've got mood swinging, vigorous and hard-working year ahead. As you might guess, coming 2010 year of the metal Tiger is passionate, honest and modest. Sun sign horoscope for the 2010 year of the Tiger like his animal sing is naturally forgiving, rarely holding grudges for long, it symbolizes eternal family values, rate highly friends support and care.

But whatever it says...we hope that this year will be a good year for all of us. Good health, good money....good in everything. For my friends who are celebrating Chinese New Year....Gong Xi Fa Cai!!!

Here is more LO to share...

This one was created using Far Flung Craft Papers...& Momoyo Stamps.

Brother & Me LO...priceless picture of Qawiem & Tihany.

Finally...Little Princess Riding Hood....she was about to take her shower and she was all in the hood. I was lucky enough to have the camera besides u go...My Cutie Tihany

1 hour Project

I discover this frame by trial and error from my frame supplier. We were actually trying to find best ways to frame all my layouts. This is one of the sample that the shop did. I wonder how do you frame your layouts? I just find putting them into the 12 x 12 album is quite boring. We all put our layouts there. I feel framing will best displays layouts and when u hang it definitely looks more interesting. Back to this took me just 1 hour to do it. Most of the products are Fancy Pants.....from paper, rub ons, transparency. Have a look...

Mary Jane Kiss

Following to the successful blog hop @ ScrapbookChallenges in January, i'm very happy and honoured to be chosen as February Guest Designer. I was given an interesting sketch to work on and i decided to chose this wonderful picture of me and Zharif. Zharif is totally into Spiderman and all he can think about is his it his miniature toys or Spiderman CD or Spiderman model...if anyone goes missing...everybody in the house will go mad looking for it. He will cry and scream until he gets his Spiderman. At least once a day i have to let him watch the Spiderman CD ....from the 1st till the 3rd one. He can memorize all the script and action in all 3 sequels. The one that gave me a shock is the Mary Jane kiss. My hubby manage to shoot this pic of him kissing his Mary Jane ...which is his Mummy! Hahaha...cute.

Here is the sketch given to me to work on and also my take.

In this layout, i use quite a bit of new stamps collection from Momoyo Scraps. They will soon be available at their shop. I love them all especially the Butterfly and the Love quotes.

Back at Scrap It Lah this month, Michelle has come with interesting combo challenge. We are required to combine Oriental and Valentine elements into 1 layout. See told ya...this is interesting...i am sure very little of us has done it before including me. It took me a while before i come out with the idea. Here is mine....
