How about some challenge?

Usual Sunday blog hop and found a new challenge blog: Divas by Design, like the sweet flowers on their design and would be happy to try out the new DT call:
3 of my favourite work, well well well, can't decide which three but will be happy to use these:

"Caught You", one of my favourite using Jenni Bowlin's monthly kit, love the journalling tag and the card, I used glimmer spray on the prima flower!

"Halloween 2009", a 2 page layout. I took these beautiful pictures right after I got my Nikon D300, my dad always know what and when to give to his daughter, lol. Again, very simple background, to feature all the wonderful costume and makeup for this festival!

"Log of Fun"using Webster's, Making Memory and MME, of course, along with many sweet treasures we collected at beach!

Thank you for dropping by! Enjoy the rest of the Sunday!

The long waited showcase...

Every year in March, is the time for JIS's showcase concert, a event that worth waiting and watching!

The rehearsals started nearly a month early with the dancers and the young musicians worked very hard for the week too. The music standard in the school is really no doubt, the orchestra which is made up with music students played whole night! Here are some shots for the show:

This is the youngest member of the orchestra, 10 years old Nathan on the piano, beautiful...

and the young singers from the junior school sang the French song: Vla Bon Vent and my little girl was right there. She is the littlest one there... Later they joined the senior choir, look, how tiny she is ! Here is her sister with the rest of the girls chorale singing "Say a little prayer".

It's a wonderful school event, the theatre was full house for the two show nights!

A week with sketches

Did my spring cleaning before Chinese New Year, again I realized there are so many supplies that I haven't even used, so clearly set myself a goal: Must try to scrap more in the new year, the idea was at least 1 layout a week. Guess what, I was very good, and actually finished 3 last week!

The layout were all based on sketches from Inspired Blueprints:
I have used my Jenni Bowlin's kit for this sketch, a very simply layout.
Most of the supplies in this look are from making memories 's Je 'adore collection, I also add two rose sticker from BG. I had the picture printed in two type: black and white together with the one in colour, I'm glad that I used the B/W in the look, it fits better!
I like to use sketch from time to time, dont' take it wrong, you still can be as creative as you are to play the sketch around! As for sketch #65, I used the chipboard house to replace one of the picture while as for #66, I just rotate the sketch anti clockwise 90 degree!
I also handed the "never forget" layout to Shabby Chic for the Valentine layout contest, it is really nice that I am back on the track again!!!

storyboard kits sketch

Discovered this kit club recently, was totally inspired the talents over there and they held a sketch contest, I had to try out especially with the tutorial of the felt flower -- I love felt.

I used Basic Grey's paper, Prima's say it in pearls, American Craft's thickers, Cosmo Cricket's tiny type stickers, Maya Road's pin on this layout. It's a picture of Renee taken on the school "Punk Day" and my little sweet girl turned into a Rocker Punk? lol, anyway, she's my sweet darling.

In the mood of cutting

As far as I can remember, I like to use scissors, from cutting my doll's dress to cutting mom's tabe cloth... anyway, I just into the cutting!

Chinese New Year is around the corner, hum,hum, the shopping has not done yet though. The last weekend, I did two Chinese paper cutting, which involves a lot drawing and cutting, when I completed the two big pieces, my fingers could't feel a thing, I think I pressed too hard on the craft knife!

But these two pieces made me smile, they looked perfect for my kitchen window:

"Nian Nian You Yu" means abundence.

"Fu Wa Yin Chun" is a traditional picture used during Chinese New Year.

Say Hello to the new year!

A bit late but better than never, so here it is: Hello, Year 2011!

There are a lot of water this year, it's been raining here nearly everyday since the day 1 of 2011! And you know what, last week I went for my first run in the jungle and it turned out to be a super wet day! As soon as we headed to the jungle the rain started pouring... I will remember that one hour forever seriously! There were leaves and tiny branches in my wet hair, my pocket, don't need mention that I was completed soaked and one leg slipped into a small pond, lol. Really enjoyed it and ready for the next one in two days time!

There are quite a few things I want to do this year, one of them is write more, post more... this is a beautiful place to note the things happened, happening and will happen in my life.

How about to share this one today:

Bought the Babushika from KaiserCraft through Emma's Paperie, the place I love to shop! Well, they have been sleeping in my basket for a year! yes, a year!!! Finally I decided to play with them. I first painted them using acrylic paint color brown mixed with silver. I had a good time to decide how they should look like ( you know I do take long time to think plus the time my girls used ) and made my decision to paint their face like this, sweet , aren't they!

I used the beautiful paper from webster's pages, of course, along with brads and laces, now they are looking at me every day like this.

How I enjoy that my life is filled with little pretty things! So I told myself :
"you need to make more"

Hopefully, I will and be back very soon!

Adore, Grow, Live

That's what I made using JB May's project kit: it comes with 7 Gypsies' hanging book, JB bingo card and some chipboard shapes.

The pictures were taken two weeks ago when Renee had the Punk day at school, the year 5s dressed as punks to raise money for the much needed children in the country, that week's total amount reached $2800! When I looked at my baby, just couldn't believe how the time flew, she is turning 10 this August! That baby, the little, tiny thing!

Another week nearly gone, 4 more to go till my summer holiday!
