Christmas Gift

Here's a sneak peak of one of the pages for my desk calendar (December '09)
Usually by the time we start what we call the "ber" months, we have already put up a Christmas tree at home, Christmas songs are being played on the radio, TV programs starts to have their Christmas countdown, people rushing to buy gifts. This year Christmas started very late for me. We put up our Christmas tree 2 weeks ago only & until now I haven't finished my list.
I've always wanted to give useful & unique gifts to people who are special to me. This year I'm doing desk calendars. So far...I'm way behind and most likely they will receive their calendars by January *LOL*
Materials Used:
PP: American Crafts
Embellishments: Making Memories Metal embellishment, Maya Road clear stamp, Revo Spicy Chicken Font
Tools: Zutter (haven't used yet hehehe, will do all the pages at the same time)

I did this layout using Inspired Blueprints Sketch #4. I haven't submitted though because I still I want to add something but not sure what it is.

Moments


This LO is for my mama's album. The photo was taken during our trip to KL last 2006. It's one of those memorable vacation because we seldom spend time with each other doing nothing. We are all caught up with our own busy schedules that we forget to just sit back & relax. My younger sister was with us as well, she just graduated from University then. I can't wait for another trip with them. One thing I wish though is that my older sister can join us next time though *hint hint* :-).

Quiet Time

I was so tired & sleepy but I couldn't sleep last night. I guess I had a lot of things in my mind. To be more productive rather than toss and turn on my bed, I took out my supplies and tried to create one LO for "Let's be clear" challenge at Scrapbook Challenges.
Materials used:
PP: Prima, Teresa Collins
Embelishments: Ribbons, Buttons, Hambly clear prints, AC Thickers, Love Elsie chipboard buttons.

Shanghai Express


This was actually an old unfinished layout I have started doing during one of our mini scrapmeet at home (@ Chiltern Park) :-) After a lot of contemplating on what else to add I ended up just adding this phrases from Teresa Collins paper today *LOL*

This was my first Dinner & Dance in Singapore (2004). The theme was "Shanghai Express" held at Marina Mandarin Hotel. I was told by my colleagues that we must dress up to the theme but to be on the safe side I opted to wear an evening dress instead hahaha. (Photo start from Left: Me, Justin, Kevin, Kelly & Thomas)

Material used:PP: Teresa Collins & Making Memory
Embellishments: Prima flowers, Prima Say it in studs, Brads, AC Thickers
