A Card and a Layout!

Can't believe I was able to finish a card and a layout today!:) I don't think I've done it before..:P And I'm quite happy with my outputs..;)

Here's another layout of my dearest son:


I love the paper I used for this LO, I won it in a challenge (unfortunately, I forgot which one).. But whoever gave this to me, thanks so much! love it!:) I cut part of the car design so that it won't get hidden by my LO's design:
Challenges:
  • Colorful Creations - ABC Challenge - Q for Quote (my mat is filled with quotes about family), R for ribbon and S for Stickles or Stitches.
  • Creative Scrappers - Sketch#162
  • Scrap it with a Song - The Way You Make Me Feel - Aside from using a part of the lyrics (Pretty Baby), the song title just suits me at the moment..:) Being a first time mom, everyday I'm still amazed at my precious miracle! There are days where I feel like I'm in an emotional roller coaster ride all because of my pretty baby..;)
And here's my card:
I'm adding this to the Xmas card pile I started in my previous post.:)

Challenges:
Thanks for viewing!:)

A Photo Scavenger Hunt!

It's the first time I joined a photo scavenger hunt challenge and I was really excited to do it! All thanks to the CS Divas for this challenge..;)

Here are the items I "hunted" for:

1. Flowers - love these flower embellies!

2. Ribbons - just bought these ribbons yesterday.. it's actually the 1st time I bought ribbons in "rolls".. I usually just buy a couple of yards..:P

3. Food item/Dinner - hubby made baby back ribs for dinner tonight..:)

4. Glitter - bought these quite a long time ago... still haven't used them.. honestly, I still dunno how to use them in my LOs..:P hehe!! I guess I'm still a newbie crafter..:P

5. Favorite craft item - since I don't have much scrapping supplies/resources yet, these are my fave craft item.. I usually just make my embellies, so I use my scissors a lot!:P

6. A bed - our king-size bed

7. A family member - my boys (hubby & son)

8. Your most recent picture that you just took (not including this challenge) - this is my most fave item from the list as I just took this photo below today.. my baby just turned 10 weeks old!:)

9. The color green - literally, I took a picture of all my green (different shades) colored pencils..:P

10. A card fold ( easel, joy fold, trifold, etc) - a trifold card I made a long time ago.. I'd say this is one of my fave cards...:)
Hope to find more of these kind of challenges!:P I definitely had fun "photo scavenging"..;) Hehe!

Thanks for visiting!:)

Divalicious Christmas in July Blog Hop

As I mentioned in a previous post, the Creative Scrapbooking Divas had a Divalicious Xmas in July Blog Hop last weekend. I really enjoyed hoping thru all the Divas' blogs and seeing their xmas project ideas!

Unfortunately, I couldn't do some of them due to lack of resources.. So for my xmas project, I just plan to start creating my xmas cards this July. I want to create cards for my family and friends this xmas for a change, instead of just buying from a bookstore..:P

Here's a few I was able to start with:

These will be my "generic" cards, which will be mass produced and given to my colleagues and friends..

For my family and close friends, I plan to create a different one for each of them..:) I was able to finish one. Since I couldn't create a real banner like in Diva Jessica's blog, I decided to just use the banner concept in my card. This one I'll give to one of my close friends:



More to come, of course. I'll be updating this blog and posting the pics as I finish them.. ;)

Thanks for visiting and happy viewing!:)

While doing Ellephantastic's Blog Hop, I discovered this site: She Stamps by Cheryl.. And she's giving out a candy!!! I really really really wish I get to win this! I've been dreaming of having copic markers since I learned about it.. Unfortunately, can't find anyone selling it here in Singapore.. and I can't afford to buy and have it shipped from the US..

Anyway, here's the candy she's giving out!:)

Do visit her site, you have 'til August 1 for a chance to win this candy!:)
