Crazy Love

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.

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.

Life’s A Journey

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.

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.

A Day to Remember Mini Album

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.

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,




Good Bye Two Peas in a Bucket

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,
