Finally completed.

I finally completed the last challenge set by The Velvet Cat This challenge was to scrap a mini book of yourself. I had no idea how to do it, and it had to be binded. I've never done a mini book, so it was a huge challenge for me. I also had no idea what to put in it. So finally I've finished it and am so glad that it's over, was such good practice, and when i get better at scrapbooking, I may add to it.

On page 6 I've written in lead pencil what I want to achieve in the next few years. And page 3 is little tid bits about me as a child.

I've decided that I'm never doing a challenge during the day when I'm fasting. I find it hard to concentrate, so from now on challenges during ramadan are only being done after I've opened fast.

Sisters LO


This LO I did for the m4m challenge, the 3 gorgeous girls are my eldest sisters daughters - Amelia (eldest), Camryn, and then baby Ashlee. Had to have at least - 4 photos, 5 cloth things, 8 fonts, and 10 pieces of patterned paper. Also no more than 1 card stock, 2 flowers, and 3 pieces of chipboard. It made requirement, but I'm not happy with it, I'm not used to making so cluttered lol, and i couldn't get the pics close together in a way that I liked. But oh well it's done and I'm just glad I finished it.

I hope the next challenge isn't as hard. Winner is drawn on Sunday and last challenge is announced on monday. Hopefully I'll have enough scrap material on home, cause I don't want to have to go shopping for the next 3 weeks since I'm going to singapore and I'm splurging on things whilst I'm there. Posted by Picasa

Some more LO's


This one I love the papers I used, but I don't like the Loves's being over the paper design, I thought it was a good idea at the time. I think if I try to do it again, I'd put the photos over the bloom paper and the love's over the scroll paper, or solid light blue paper. Other than that I love the dark blue cardstock colour.

Oh this was my 5th or 6th LO I made i think was when i just started. Posted by Picasa

This next LO is of my dad holding my eldest sisters youngest child. I only made this on saturday night. It's quite a sweet photo, my dad loves his grandkids esp when they're babies.

Some of my pages.

So I thought I'd post some of my LO's.

I'm also doing my first challenge on m4m, it's 4 challenges for each monday in september, each must be submitted by the following sunday. First week was journalling - I missed the deadline because of internet issues. Last week was scraplift challenge, to scraplift part of LO from the hambly DT LO's I did this LO of Myra she is the daughter of someone I hope to become good friends with insha'allah.

This LO is of my parents. The journaling is from the Quran ayah 17:23 and reads: ...and do good unto thy parents. Should one of them, or both, attain to old age in thy care, never say ugh to them or scold them, but always speak unto them with reverent speech, and spread over them humbly the wings of thy tenderness and say: O my Sustainer. Bestow thy grace upon them, even as they cherished and reared me when I was a child.

I'll bbl to post more LO's.

Thought I'd take the plunge ...

And open my own blog.

Hoping to be able to see myself on screen how I'm developing in the world of scrapbooking. My newest hobby of the last 2+ months. I probably won't post as much as I should, mainly cause i'm forgetful, and also because I won't always have something to say.

But if you read it then hats off to you.
