Lots of lo's

This is what happens when you don't update your blog regularly, you have to much to post at once. So here it all is, over a weeks worth of creativeness all in one shot.

Soo first up is my lo for the UYS (use your stash) challene at m4m, I was challenged by tigger to make a lo with no pp, only using my "build-a-flower" stamps from AL and buttons as the pattern for the lo. I came up with this lovely lo of my niece Amelia:
The lovely miss Amelia

Now I've done a lo, I think I'll put another list of things up to get challenged again. It was good fun creating this, and it's definately different from the usual work i do.

So number 2 was for the asian dares blog, (scrap a lo in another language) but I was about 2 mins late with posting it, but alls well, cause I love this lo anyway. Orang tengah means middle person, I was kinda trying to focus on the odd one out in these photos -> my husband lol.

So this card I did for a card sketch at Groovie Ed's kits. I gave it to DH he liked it, though the whole love theme is a bit mushy for some men.

I made this altered board the other night, when I was not having any creativness to do any lo's, I ended up passing it onto MIL I hope she likes it.

Another Singapore zoo LO, this one is dh sizing up his foot to Komali's foot print. I've seen Komali in the flesh and she's a big elephant, funny to, i caught her swaying to music, when mum and I toddled through the elephant area on our way to go see the water show (where I got to be kissed by the sea lion for $5 lol.
Big foot

And last but not least a gift tag I made from papers I got from Ed's kit club. First pic is the front 2nd pic is the back.

So now that the lo's are posted. I went out today, to the shops "fun" anyways I went nuts on buttons again, I don't know why, I spent $6 on such a small amount of buttons just because they were half price, when I could've gotten 3 times the amount if I'd have bought a buetron "bag of buttons". Another thing that peeved me (and I didn't realise till I got home) was they over charged me for the gutermenn cotton threads I bought, they're 25% off, and they charged me full price. So if we go there on Tuesday I'll bring it up with them, see if I can get the difference back insha'allah. Not that $1.50 is much, but then again i don't have lots of money to start with, plus they should pay attention when they're ringing the orders up.

I've decided to get back on the meal planing wagon, and I've planned meals for tonight, sat and sun. We're having some arabian dish I got the recipe from my friend but I'm lazy to cook the tomato sauce part (it's pita bread made into "chips" <- cut them up and make them hard by baking them with oil in the oven, with a minced meat and tomato and eggplant sauce (this is where I cheat and buy pre-made) with yoghurt with tahini and garlic on top, and mint sprinkled over it). Should be yum, tomorrow night is Lemon chicken I can't wait, and sunday I'm making arias, it's a minced meat mix spread thinly on pita bread and cooked through.

Anyways thats all for now, I want to get back to scrapping.

Tired tired tired

Today I am tired, I really don't know why, probably my poor diet lol. But yesterday I felt great! Not only did I feel great yesterday I also had some creativness flowwing in that head of mine woo. So Edleen and I were chatting on yahoo as you do, and I was feeling lazy to do anything. So she decided to have a scrap and chat. Turned out when I'm not being lazy creativness comes into force. I made this lovely LO, with a nice lovey dovey theme.

We share

DH however hates the pic of him, but since I have the majority choice it stays cause I like the pic lol.

I also completed this lo (I started it over a week ago) of my nephew Kaleb he's just turned 2 this last december. Absolute sweet heart he is, this was the first time I had met him, and he was such a placid baby, just lay there no expression, till you tickled him and then that was it all smiles. Great baby he was, good little boy to, my mum gives me lots of updates. I'm hoping to go see him in July since I haven't seen him in a year.

At 7 weeks

Oh and i got to use out my new sewing machine DH bought me. Sews so well. One day I'll graduate from sewing cardstock to making clothes.

Some new things

Here are the LO's I've done lately. The first is of Halimah, Nenek, Annie and myself a Neneks house during Hari Raya last October. It was such a good day, and Nenek is so sweet masha'allah. The title is just about us all being related.
Ties that bind

He sees beauty, I made this LO for my husband, this is his absolute favourite photo of me. He took this photo of me 4 years ago, as you can see I blinked when he took the photo lol.
He sees Beauty

I made this LO for my husbands cousin, she's just started a scrapping kit, so she sent me over some papers to make some things with. I've only done this one so far (made it yesterday). I'm going to try and make a card as well, and another LO. The papers are so nice.
Treasures of the heart

These 2 coasters I altered for my brothers 2 children. Destiny (8) and Kaleb (2). I'm going to glue a magnet on the back of them both so they can keep them on the fridge.
2 coasters for Destiny and Kaleb

I made these 2 LO's for an online crop. The 1st one (Sasha & Stef) I won a prize for. It's tough trying to meet the deadlines lol, when all you want to do is chat with everyone.
Sasha & Stef
Travel light

Well thats all for now. I've been really good with buying things, I went shopping on Wednesday for stuffs, the first time in a few weeks. I'm waiting for the new CHA things to come out then I'll probably be at the shops getting things everyday lol.
