New Addiction

LOL...this is really funny. I somehow found another addiction to the extend that i'm ditching scrapbook for almost a week. I was so into "Bookbinding" after attending 2 day course. I found myself constantly sewing books! Hahaha....I have no regrets attending this course. It was a complete fun workshop with bunch of great people. I wanna share with you some of my newly born books!

I was kinda late this time for the submission of Palette 46 in Color Room. I thot i would miss it but hey i did it. Actually i was kinda excited to use my new kid's photos. I took them last week and it was really precious because i'm having so much problems to get the three of them together for a single photoshoot. I hope you like my take...

Thats Life..

Most years seem to come and go. Occasionally, one comes along that jars and tears at you deep inside.This was one of those years when things happen beyond your control. My husband's father died about a week ago. Like many couples, my in laws were married for 47 years. That is really a long period of time. I've only been married for 7 years and i cannot imagine to live without someone you love. I hope my husband's family will continue to stay strong on this tough times.

~ "Stay" is a charming words in friend's vocabulary ~

Stay is probably the best word to describe my friendship with Tracey. As far as i can remember, we've been friends for so many years. We might not meet that often nowadays but yet we still "Stay" around whenever we need each other. I had a chance to meet her few weeks back, it was such a lovely time to see each other again.

Here is the moments to capture our fun moments based on the ColorRoom Palette #44

Review: Fine & Dandy True Blue

I thought this year i want to make a change to my blog. Rather than talking all about me, i wanted to share my personal views on scrapbook products that i like. I'm writing here based on my personal experience using the products. I might ended up falling in love with the products or i might not like it. Sometimes is hard to say because when i buy them, i thought this will do good to this project but when you are actually working with it, not all the time you will get your desired result. Some of it can be difficult to use, either papers, rub ons, stickers, etc.

I'm starting my first review with My Mind Eye Collection called True Blue. This collections are meant for boys as they also have for the girl called Tickled Pink. But i was drawn to the latest Color Room Palette, so i decided to use it for my girl's picture. This collection has lovely combo....yellow, blue, orange, brown and white. They have 12 double sided papers, chipboard, stickers and layered stickers, trims, brads and buttons. This type of combo are easily used, it doesn't take me long to think on how to match the papers. The cut out from the chipboard are really lovely. It provides a happy elements to my layouts. If you are looking for fun colors, this collection definitely a good ones...with the banners, cute owls and lovely can never say NO!

Here is my layout inspired by The Color Room Palette #43

Till next time...
