{ LO#05 - Unlimited Love }

Yeah... finally completed my very first 12"x12" LO.
Maybe it's becoz of the challenge that I actually din procrastinate much this time...
then again, it still took me a few nights to complete.







Quite like the final look of it. Maybe becoz I really like that pattern paper.
Hee... thanks to Justina that I saw and bot them from her last week.
Just nice for the photos which we recently took after Rhys' concert. Pink.

The difficult part is the journaling and using of 3 pattern paper.
Luckily managed to find matching papers. I actually dun have a lot of pinky papers...

Here are some of the close up pix:

The LOVE is actually acetate clear alpha which I bot very long ago.
Originally wanted to just use it as clear but too plain. Then decided to use pink vellum underneath it but effects wasn't that good. In the end, with a simple polka-dot pattern paper turns out much nicer.
Glue-ing the paper to the acetate was so troublesome.
I used my vellum glue dots but ended up seeing the small little dots thru the clear alpha... Not nice lor... and in between that, some glue got smear and ended up in gray patches... argh...
Could have been better but I really dun know how to get it glued...



This is the first part I did and it took me so long to just paste the little pearls on the pix.
The pearls are actually used for nail art... hee... took me some time to paste them one by one... help to distract ppl from my fat face as well.. haa...



Oh.. finally I got to use my Big Bite to set brads! And I LOVE IT! It's easy and silent! Never regret that buy! Oh and the brads are so pretti!
The pink tag is actually my first Spellbinder dies used too. Too bad I dun have the tan mat for embossing... otherwise can try it out.



Journal read :
When I looked at you, I know a MOTHER'S love can be unlimited...
I know becoz I have!



Really had a fun time doing this and I realised 12"x12" LO are so much flexible and fun to do.
Think I am going to give up my 6"x6"! haa...
Can't wait to work on my next LO!! Woo hoo...
erh... come to think of it... I like the RAK for the challenge... Let me win!! hee...

Working on my 1st 12"x12" LO...

The ladies in the SMH SB Club have started a challenge (with a very nice blog too...) for all of us who have not been scraping for quite some time...

This makes me so excited coz I really want to do something. Have been buying so much stash and yet not be able to produce anything... so this time, I manage to start off and intended to complete my very first 12x12 LO...

Well... mind is strong but flesh is weak... when reached the late night I am so tired that I cannot even start on the LO... only managed to do up a draft design on Monday. Hopefully tonight can complete it... so exciting... dun think i will win the challenge with the LO i did but at least I did complete an LO... haa... and use my STASH!!

Want but can't...

Recently really no output at all...
Want to scrap... but too tired at night...
Want to scrap... but dun know where to start...
Want to scrap... but dun have this dun have that...

Basically all I did these days is just use 10% of my brain to think of an LO...
ended up with nothing done... and 99% of my brain and pocket to buy buy buy SB stuff...

I knew I have been spending a lot lately... just cannot resist...
Now I got loot with ppl... spent so much money and yet haven even seen the stuff yet...

I got so many things in mind to do...
I wanted very much to do an LO on myself but I just realised that ever since Rhys is borned, I dun even have a NICE, decent pretty photo of myself... I even thot of the title for the LO!! Erh... either Phoenix Reborn or Reborned Phoenix... inspired by a stamp from BasicGrey which is a Phoenix... really really love that stamp...

I wanted to do an LO on Rhys' birthday...
an LO on Rhys' recently hospitalisation...
and so many things...

Dun know when can I really sit down and start and COMPLETE on something...
God.. help me!!!!
