{ LO#03 - B is for BOYS... }

Today after bringing Rhys back from school, he met his ah mah, heng heng didi at the lift lobby together with his ah mah's neighbours whose grandson who simply loves to play with Rhys...
Suddenly rem that I have my cam with me so managed to take a few nice shots of Rhys and his "best friend".

After looking at the nice pix, I simply cannot resist sb-ing it. So in a very short time, hmm.. think within 1 hr??, I managed to do up a very simple LO for Rhys' little best friend...
Even fixed a magnet behind it so that they can stick it on their fridge... hee...

Although it is a simple one, I know it can be very much better lor. Too bad, it's a bit rushed...
But I was thinking, nevermind, I can still sb it again for my own keeping... hee....

So here it is,
B is for BOYS... my 3rd LO...
(hmm... maybe cannot see very clearly, the "B is for BOYS" tag is actually elevated using foam dots to give a bit 3D feel..)Next... hmm... I just downloaded some digital scrapbook materials...
I am going to revamp THIS blogspot!!

{ LO#01 - Expressions }

Yeah, finally completed my very first LO! Whew...
actually I already had the pix pasted in for quite some time but no time to finish it.
So today finally managed to complete it and I quite like the look of it.
Good to have a scrapbooking corner... hee...

So here it is, (click on the pix to see bigger version)
After doing some of the layout, realised that I am stuck on what to put as the main title.
In the end, I just skip it. Just made 2 small "2" to make my journaling a bit different nia.
Well, this is a 6"x6" so a bit limited lah... hopefully can do more next time...

Here are some detail pix. (click on the pix to see bigger version)I especially like the side embellishments... hee...

Oh... since it is the first time that I really use my stash, I just want to highlight a few things which I really like...

1. MakingMemories Funky Vintage Clears, Tags & Shapes.
(I simply loves the shapes... I am a "curvy" scrapper... maybe I shld buy a few more packs of these.... anyway, the side embellishment used with the flower in the LO comes from this pack. Nice hor...)2. Glue Dots Vellum
(These are so easy to use and so useful... just peel the paper, stick your paper on it, remove and tada, you have small tiny glue dots on your paper... the cool part is that you can use it on vellum and you can't see a thing! Cool!)
Hmm... got more things to share but will leave it later bah... getting so excited.. woo hoo...

{ My Scrapbooking Corner... }

When I first started on scrapbooking, I find it so difficult to do it coz...

1. When I am at home, my then baby, now naughty toddler, will also be around and needless to say, I cannot do anything at all.
2. I got no space to put/place my scrapbook stuff, esp. so when I have already "stocked" up quite a stash of things. In the end, all ended up kept in a big ikea storage box.
3. Every time I wanted to do something, by the time I get the stuff out and figured out what to do with it, either my son woke up from nap or its late and I got to work the next day...

Of coz, all the above are excuses but it will be much easier for me to start on scrapbooking if some of the issues above are solved.

Well, I cannot expect my son to grow up instantly so the only thing I can think of is to have a space for scrapbooking. All my scrapbook stuff are there when I need it. No need to take out from the box and put back into the box anymore.

So finally, with the blessing from hubby, he can spare up a corner of the study table for me to make a small scrapbooking corner for me. (Thank you darling...)
Here it is...

Well, I have done up this corner within 2 days and even managed to do a quick simple design for my inspiration corkboard... Not too bad lah...

Now, all I am left is my first completed LO!!

{ The beginning of my Scrapbooking Blog }

It is so funny that I have had this love for scrapbooking since dun know when... hmm, probably close to 2 years ago? But the funny part comes in when I have NOTHING, absolutely nothing to show, yes... not even ONE complete layout to show. And that was after almost 2 years of buying papers (ok... not just normal papers but ACID FREE aka very expensive fanciful papers), glue, embellishments, tags, eyelets, brads, tools, you say it, I have it... (ok... maybe not all lah... I still got a die-cut REVOLUTION machine on my wish list... anyone want to buy me as xmas or bdae present? PLSSSSS...)

So finally until today, I have decided that I cannot continue this way any more.
I got to START and COMPLETE something!!

So here I am, trying to motivate myself (actually is I gian lah, when seeing some of my forum friends' blog on their scrapbooking experience so cool...), started off this blog.
Hopefully I can really put this blog in use and got something to share very soon and very often...

Here it goes...
WELCOME TO MY "LOVE IN SCRAPS" BLOG!
(hee... machiam so grand...)
