Jillibean Soup: Hello There!

June is going to be a fun and exciting month because Josie and I have an upcoming project that I just can't share yet. It's a big scale project if you ask me because it's the first time we are doing this and we are really excited about it. Wish us luck! 

Now I just can't leave you without sharing anything, can I? No. Here's a card I made based on Kimber's sketch that can be found here. I had so much fun working with Kimber's sketch and always look forward at how the rest of the DT interpreted her sketch. They were different but fabulous in every way! This time, I followed the sketch loosely and used the banners from the sketch as my starting point. Instead of creating banners again, I decided to wrap my card with the colorful baker twine from Jillibean Soup. I realized that I have never use most of the twine that Jillibean Soup sent me so I made a point to use them this time. Consider this as stepping out of my comfort zone :)

Jillibean Soup: Wishes Card

Hello there! I'm back again with another card to share. I'm happy whenever I get the chance to post regularly but having a full time job and a baby to care for, this blog of mine is often being neglected. Poor thing. I'm working on it though....I have a lot of crafty ideas that I wanted to share with you but needed the time to do so....please hang in there with me.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Irish Farmhouse collection by Jillibean Soup! Have I said that already? Opps...but I needed to say it one more time! Lol. Thanks to the die cuts, this card came together pretty quickly and it saves me a lot of time. Love it when that happens. 

Have a great day my beautiful friends!

Jillibean Soup: I Believe In Good Friends Forever

This layout was up on the Jillibean Soup blog last week and it's by far my favorite. I used a lot of Irish Farmhouse collection and I LOVE it so much! When I saw these paper, the vintage side of me immediately took over and I created the layout above. I started by randomly spray my background paper with white mist using a polka dot mask. Then I painted the top left with white acrylic paint and I realized I don't have talent in painting at all because it looked horrible. Fortunately, I get to cover my mistake by layering several pattern paper on it and love how the white paint sneak out from behind. I hope you read the title as good friends forever and not good friends Forever is a long word so I cut it short with an apostrophe. Hope you like it too!

We Are Family + Cutesie Photos of Abby

Before I start, I would like to say THANK YOU for the time you took to leave a comment or two on my blog. You know who you are and I truly appreciate it! With that, I want to give you a big bear hug!

 I made a layout the other day using only the Dear Lizzy paper from the Lucky Charm collection. Honestly the colors are not really my style but I love the design so much that I went ahead and bought them anyway. No regrets as the paper work so well together! I usually love to work on the same collection because the patterns and colors are designed to work for each kinda saves me some time to rummage through my stash to find the perfect one. I hope you like this one :)

Oh and before I go....I have to share this. She's too cute not to share right? Lol.....

Layouts To Share......

After an emotional post yesterday, I thought I would cheer things up a little by sharing these layouts with you. Nothing makes me happy (besides my family) than creating and sharing them with you. Being creative is a stress reliever for me, an outlet to create things for myself and feel good about it. I have never like a hobby for this long and I definitely see myself doing this for many years to come.

This layout uses a lot of Chilled Cucumber Soup paper by Jillibean Soup and in fact, they are mostly scraps left from my previous projects. Check out the list of supplies here. This picture was taken during Jessy's visit to Penang late last year. We took Abby to the hotel they were staying for a swim. And right before pool time, we managed to snap some pictures in her hotel room. Abby seemed comfortable with Jessy that she let her carried her around.

I used mostly Crate Paper for this layout and I entered it for their April challenge. Think I develop some kind of banner fetish and I hope you are not bored with them yet. Compared with the photo above, Abby has grown so much! At least she has more hair Love my baby to bits!

Thanks for stopping by!

On May 5th, I joined millions of Malaysians to cast our vote and do our part for the make a change. A change for a better government is imminent as the ruling government is so corrupted to the core. In the 55 years of Independence, this is the first time Malaysians are so united in fighting corrupted government. The opposition could have won the election if the ruling government had not use dirty tactics. Phantom voters, blackout at counting centres, extra ballot boxes appeared out of nowhere and gangsterism are few of their tactics used just to win the election. They might have won the Parliament seats but not the heart of its people. Millions of Malaysians are aching but we will not stop....we shall rise and fight again! With that said, I still LOVE my country....(not the government).

The so called indelible ink used on our fingers to prevent double voting. There are a lot of complains that the ink came off easily with soap...not so indelible after all.
