Domestic Queen

Just finished altering the clear acetates into a mini Album for Artz de Scrap May's Challenge. Am so happy that I managed to complete a mini album on my dearest mom! I also submitted the cover for Laines Gallery to scrap a women u love & share the technique on the page...


1. Did a image transfer of Sassafras blossomed PP for the cover. Other embellishment included: Foverer In Time Flocked Chipboard Alpha, Toga Alpha Stickers, Woman cut out from Crafty Secrets Handmade Images & Journal Notes Pad. Used the black Staz On to ink the edges of all the clear acetates ...

2. Yellow Pokka Dot PP is from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird: Sunrise. Image from Crafty Secrets Little Dolls Images & Journal Notes Pad. Used Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink to ink all the edges of all the PP.

3. Blue PP is from Basic Grey Offbeat. Image from Crafty Secrets Little Dolls Images & Journal Notes Pad.

4. Tag Cut out from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird: Elements PP, the small piece of PP from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird: Brunch.

5. Spread the Ranger Aqua Stickles throughout the clear acetate page. .

6. PP from Cosmo Cricket Early Bird: Brunch, image from Crafty Secrets Handmade Images & Journal Notes Pad. PP Strip from MM, can't recall the name.

7. Watering Can from MME " Bloom & Grow" tag. Flowers from various Mix of Prima Flowers, centred with Robin Nest's Dew Drops. Used the glossy accent to glue this down to the acetate page.

Thanks for looking!

Hmm... something is missing...

Hmm... somehow just find that something is missing from my earlier posted LO for May Challenge of Ed's Sketch, then it came to me, I missed out more inking! Have redone my LO and think it looks better... at least to myself...


What do you think? Pls give me opinion how I can improve my LO better, I'm simply bad at 12"x12" LO...

New LO hot from the stove!

It's been quite some time since I last really scrap a LO except the recent class that I attend in Changi Simei CC conducted by Jenn.

Today is crazy shopping time at Laines VIP sale again. Bought quite a fair bit of stuff and Ed is reminds me better start to de-stash by scrapping more often coz it's simply unhealthy to keep buying... Received a RAK from Feli and yes, I love them, raw chipboards, flowers & ribbons!!! I wanna experiment the raw chipboards with paint and crackle accents and use in my next LO if possible! Feli also passed me some MWL vouchers and I ended up my second shopping session there. Finally bought my very first bottle of Robin's Nest, I've seen Feli used in her LOs ample times and have been thinking for the longest time... with the discount voucher, I finally bought it. Then I met Yen in MWL and she gave me another discount voucher which I use it on a set of Sizzix Texture plates which previously Aida bring for us to use in the last crop for us to use.

When I reached home, just suddenly have the inspiration and try out the May Challenge for Ed's Sketch, though I may be too late but it's just for the fun...

The is the sketch by Ed

and this is my LO...
Finally use one of the wooden scrolls which I bought some time back during Laine's previous sale and also the newly bought Robin's Nest dew drops from Made With Love.

无欲无求。。。

到底要如何才能做到无欲无求?凡是放开,不要有所期待,就不会感到失望。。。没有期待,就没有兴奋,不再把七情六欲挂在脸上,这就是所谓的无欲无求?

我只是凡夫俗子,要做到这点,简直比登天还难!!!

How much do you enjoy food?

How much do you enjoy eating food? Have you ever wasted much food in the past? Have it ever crossed your mind that while you are wasting food from ordering more than what you can eat, there others out there struggling hard just to get a piece of the leftover food? Have you ever realised that you are one of the privileged ones who can eat as and when you wanted?

I've always feel that one should not waste food... That's why I always try to finish whatever is in the plate, unless the portion is way too much from what I can intake. Nowadays, if I feel that that the portion is too big for me to finish out, I will request for a smaller portion to minimise waste. How about you?

A fellow scrapper, Michelle has shared this video link - Chicken A La Carte by Ferdinand Dimadura, which after viewing, had cried my heart out! I believe that this is a "wake up call" to those who tend to waste food always. Will definitely share this video clip with my friends and hopefully convey a positive message to all, to treasure what you have and also understanding the rationale & importance of not wasting food...
 

Synopsis:
This film is about the hunger and poverty brought about by Globalization. There are 10,000 people dying everyday due to hunger and malnutrition. This short film shows a forgotten portion of the society. The people who live on the refuse of men to survive. What is inspiring is the hope and spirituality that never left this people.

The next time you place an order for food, do think twice if you have ordered too much...

I'm a Winner!!!

So Happy when I received an SMS from Sasha informing that I'm the lucky Winner to Doris Sander's Class - Product Pizzazz 102. I never thought that I'll be that lucky...


However, with Doris' email has reaffirmed that, yah! I'm that lucky winner!

Creative Escape 2009

Had so much fun at the Creative Escape with Kah-Mei Smith, Donna Downey & Tia Benett on 25 Apr 2009; learning and revising on skills & techniques.

Although unlike the kind angels who stood by our side as teacher assistants for almost whole of 12hrs, I suffered from body aches too... just don't understand why, is it a sign of aging for me?

Had great fun meeting old friends and making new friends...

Had such great excitement that Kah-Mei Smith still can recall my name due to previous Fontwerks warehouse sale kits ordering issue:P

Had so much worries & anxiety about losing and finding my pink autographed cutterpede!

Here are some sneak peeks of what we have learnt during the whole day class. Due to respect the teachers' copyright, will not be showing the full completed projects. In fact, I've yet completed all, will try to get them completed during this weekend though...


Kah-Mei Smith - The Beginnings (Stamping Technique Album)


Donna Downey - Swatches (Framed Canvas Project)





Tia Benett - Pieces of My Heart

Are you excited about the completed project? Did you regret not missing out the fun???
