Something exciting for the coming month: July

July - it is the 7th month of the year and it is also the month of my birthday.

So it should be a lot of exciting things in the coming month, but first, I need to share with you that I will start to design for Artz de Scrap from this July!!! Follow the link here or click on the blink on the right side of this blog, you will be able to see a place where you can get hands on with a lot of altered projects. If you are with me, someone likes to make stuff, then this is the place you should drop by.

Then, have a look at this:

My Renee's art work which is displayed in the Empire Hotel at the moment. It's a very simple paper art but I am just so proud of her.

As for the little one, I only managed to snap a few of her pictures during the celebration evening, she's out of patient when I took my 5th shot...

Anyway, she is still the cutest doll I have ever seen!

A quick update

Just 3 weeks more for the summer holiday, yet these three weeks look like the longest 3 weeks in my life, lol.

A few things arrived this week, my prize from Inspired Blueprints for my layout in April, the kit from Gauche Alchemy is so yummy: a lot of vintage magazine pages, bits of this and that buttons, lace, fabric, chipboard, I have been thinking what I am going to do with these pretty stuff:

I made a quick lo Monday night with my JB's May kit, the new line of JB paper based on IB's sketch #23:

other materials used: vintage buttons from JB, milk cap from JB, fabric letter sticker from AC.

Have you heard the exciting news from Shabby Chic? The design team will teach on 12th and 13th July! We have some beautiful stuff to share with you, do remember to book a seat now!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Just don't know where all the time went... 
This is a beautiful Sunday morning, so peaceful in the household, everyone is enjoying their own things.

Rafeeqa of course is busy with her winx club while Renee can't let her DS go even it's charging. The man in the house doesn't want his face to be shown and my space, I have to say that it's kinda messy after a few layouts, lol.

Over the vintage plum, the star search is in its 4th week, for week 3, our bonus is to make a layout for ourselves, I had this one for months which I started in Shabby Chic but never completed. So I pulled it out and told myself that I have to finish it, so here it is:

Also in my stash, I have JB's May kit that I just picked up last week, it's so beautiful as usual, I made two layouts so far:

The first one was based on IB's sketch. I made some paper flower from the kit,which was inspired by one of my hairband, lol.

The second one is very simple, I have to say I like this Basic Grey's letter stick very much, must dig out the old stock and use more...

Got go now, a play date in the afternoon. Till then.
