2 LO's


These are 2 of my LO's I've done recently. One titled Ed & Stef is of myself with my husbands cousin Edleen. It's very simple and i had a lot of trouble with it, mainly because it's 6x6 and it was the first I'd ever made. Perhaps I might add something to it sometime soon, when I can think of what to put in it.

The other "Family ties" is of myself and my husbands youngest sister Halimah, it's part of a 2 page LO, that I haven't finished the 2nd page to yet (no insperation lol). I love the look of this LO, and I had more sucess at this than I did with my 1st 6x6 LO. Posted by Picasa

My nieces birthday card


I made this card for my niece (my sisters daughter). She turned 10 on Saturday (18th), We bought her a Roald Dahl book The BFG, and we got her a jewlery box when we were in Singapore, a lovely dark read one with flowers on it.

So to the card, the paper effect is called Iris folding (Iris because of the centre part, which is similar ot the iris of our eyes). It took near 4 hours to make, and I was very glad to have finished it. This is only my 2nd birthday card I've made, and i hope I can try making more, only thing is I find it very difficult to find ideas for making cards.

Anyway thats my card, I'll bbl to post some LO's. Posted by Picasa

I'm back.

I've been away, in Singapore to be exact. I had no internet whilst I was there :( (I really need to get myself a laptop!!).

Whilst there I went and did lots of scrapbook shopping. Mainly with my husbands Cousin (Ed - see her blog Java Umie, it's in my links.) First Friday we were there we went to Made With Love at Plaza Singapura I absolutely love this shop, it's really groovy the way it's set up, and it has a cafe (I didn't get to try it out though). The very next day we (Ed and I) went to an open house for The Velvet Cat It was so much fun.

I have never bought so much scrapbooking things in my life!!! I even went to Popular (book and stationary store) in both Singapore and Malaysia, and brought so many pens, and clips. I also got storage containers at Johor Popular.

Anyway the trip was great, and after 3 weeks there, I want to move there. And I can't wait till we go back in 2 years time. Oh and my husbands family are awesome, I esp love his dad and step mum.

ps. I'm going to try and be better at updating this thing.
