It’s a cold and raining morning over here is Singapore But looking at this page really warms my heart. He’s getting shy in front of the camera but still willing to pause so I could take his pictures.
Close up of the elements:
The words are part of the patterned paper which I thought worked perfectly for this page.
I love the elements in the page and the stamps just work perfectly. If only I could write that nicely then the world would be perfect don’t you think?
I totally love his enthusiasm for life and everything around him. 9th of August was Singapore’s Birthday and he was all excited about it. Asking his daddy to apply the tattoo on his face and making sure he was wearing his reddest tee shirt. So, here is a page totally inspired by him and our nation’s 49’s Birthday.
I sprayed the banners a mixture of colours since it was a Birthday celebration. I have to tell you that I’m in love with those Thickers with map prints. I have been hording them for sometime. Just love the effect.
I did give the background paper a mist of gold but the camera refused to pick that up. No worries, it can shimmer and shine for me alone.
Someday when I stop and reflect, it just seems like time really files at supersonic speed. My baby boy is no longer a baby but all grown up. He doesn’t like having his picture taken much but there are days when he will oblige. Here is one that we took over the last school holidays. He will be taller than me soon but right now I’m happy to be the taller one.
This was one of my assignment for RRBF for the month of July. I paint the cardstock background randomly with a mixture of yellow gelatos and some blue mist right out of the bottle.
I do like the glittered alphas since that means I don’t have to glitter them myself. Makes me want to use more of them on a layout.
Have a great week. I’m looking forward to National Day this weekend.
Here is the newest Ed’s Sketch for the month of August.
Use any stamp on you layout just remember to have fun.
Here is my take on the challenge:
I gave the background paper a flick of gold and green Prima Color Bloomz and let mist drip.
The alphabet die cut works perfectly with the photo and I really like how it draws the eye to the photo.
Do try your hand at the sketch and submit your entry over at Ed’s Sketch for a chance to win some lovely RAK.
Enjoy the month of August.
I wanted to share this mini album that I created for my DT assignment for Ruby Rock-it last month. Since the RRBF Fundamental Cards had an embossed front which was really pretty, I wanted to use them as the mini album cover.
Basically, I painted the cover with some water colors and then rubbed brown ink all over to allow the embossed images to stand out.
The inside pages where all done with Bella! Year in Review collection.
The album pages were just tied together with ribbon and there you have it. A mini album for more precious photos.
Have a great week ahead,
I wanted to share this layout that I created for my DT assignment for Ruby Rock-it a month back.
I love the grungy feel of this page. It just complemented the outdoor feeling perfectly. Happy Monday and have a great week ahead,
It was a shocker to wake up one morning and hear that Two Peas is closing. I think it was one of the very first forums that I joined when I first started scrapbooking. It’s always sad when something that we have known for so long suddenly is no more.
So for memory sake, I took screen shots of my account.
Really couldn’t believe that I joined in 2006 !! That feels like centuries ago and this was the very first layout that I uploaded.
Here’s a close up. Not too shabby isn’t it. I can’t believe that my first born was so little then.
And so I bid farewell to a place which I might not have visited much recently but it has definitely been a part of my scrapbook learning journey.
Until my next post,
