Best time of the year

It's July, the best time of the year for me! I thought to pamper myself as I grow older ( as I always do actually ), I went to Shabby to claim all my points and bought myself the mimi tote.
And of course didn't forget to get myself something for my dear hubby ( he gives me the freedom to choose my present all the time, good isn't it? ) , here's the earring and the matching ring will be ready in weeks, I sure show you by then:

We had lunch at home with kids and dinner at yacht club with friends. The best part: We arrived at the club and it was absolutely dark, we learned the power was cut due to the heavy rain the previous night. I was thrilled that we would have a candle light dinner with so many people together! We ordered food in the dark, waited in the dark, chatted in the dark and even had starters in the dark... As I was about to finish my meal, the light went back on, we finally took a few proper photo ( sorry no food photo though, we finished all ). It was fun, by the way, did I tell you that I was sick? I was sick since last weekend but I managed to sit for my dinner. I lied on bed the next day.

Fly off to KL tomorrow ( another treat from July ), I will go to scrappingville for all of you,ok...LOL

I always want to do circles, but since my circle cutter is kind of not working so hold me there for some time. But Gabi's challenge is fun to play with: circle, chipboard, pattern paper and white pen dooodle. So I tried this:

Happy birthday to Renee

Well, actually it's still 2 weeks away.

But we had it early anyway as everyone usually out during summer holidays. She will be 7 !!! The memory of holding tiny her in my arms is still around, time really flies, she is a big girl now. Though hugs and kisses are often, she now spends more time by herself writing, drawing and playing. I do miss the time she sat on my laps.

We got many lovely shots for the pool party, and I just completed one LO ( I know, bad,bad... ) ,here is the Birthday wish

material used: Bazzil scallop card stock;KI memories chipboard letter/Queen & Co chipboard letter;MME pattern paper;Creatif Papier paper flower;Making memories paint

I'm a bad blogger, being absent for soooo long, and still look for excuses to cover myself up.

Indeed, many things happened this two weeks. Let me share with you a few:

(1) my beautiful kits arrived from US and Australia:

I just love the May kit from SOMO, ordered the May kit and now it's in my hand.

Also, Jenni Bowlin's chipboard from Australia arrived the day after. I think I will be busy with these the following weeks.

(2) summer stroll with sisters will be up soon, please do drop by here and join the fun!

(3) more scrapping

I had vistor from Guangzhou, a classmate from university. Besides showed her around Brunei, I also brought her into the world of scarpbooking, we did some LO for her son. I hope she will carry on with this even when she's back at home ( the goodies she got here will keep her busy for some times too)
