Your Smile Melts My Heart

I almost.... almost fail to complete this week case. Almost give up to let the creativity lead the page. But I'm glad I just continue and complete this page. One thing for sure, I want my girls to read me..my story and my heart. The design and colors are just a fun thing to do.

Take a sneak peek before full layout.....
Paper cutting deer....faux stitched. Melting heart attempt = craft glue + glitter + acrylic

Hidden journaling inside the vellum pocket. Little birdy admiring how happy we are.

Spot the altered alphabet?
Here is the full layout. Notice behind the vellum? It was suppose to be original design. But I mess up and overlap with vellum and working on top of it.

Thanks for visiting.....I hope you enjoy your stay. xoxo

Case 45 : My passion

I was going overboard when creating this week case,till the page finish I realised the color is no longer as above.Silly me....what am I thinking. But I'm happy with this week page. My voice is inside the journaling. I used inspiration word : comfort, family and home for my journal and inspiration for the page design.
The evidence :- silver metal on the door knob, lamp, vintage text. 
Here's the page :-
 You might no see here clearly, but I'm running out of "a" so I combine "o" and "i" to make "a" for word passion.
Open up my girl photo and you will see another 3 photos of my passion.....books, crafts and my studio.Love this idea for hiding more photos to add some fun and interactive layout.

 Lately, I'm falling in love with scroll. Scattered scrolls on the floor to represent how I love to write a list. (yes I have a lot of lists....)

The door inspired by Benefits catalog, in fact I cut out the words Art Lovers Welcome from their page.

My journal tucked behind the photo. I labelled it ....

I love love love my first attempt to create something different from what I did. Of course it took a lot of time but I'm happy with it. Get out of norm.

Thanks for visiting. Thank you very much! Keep creating .......

Our fav Sunny day : CSI Challenge & Scrapfriends Sketch

  • Two tempting challenges, one limited time. Hence, I combined these 2 challenges into one layout. Often scrappers did this,and now it is my turn.
  • Wonderful Scrapfriends sketch

I just love the idea to make a scroll for my journal. Thanks to lovely Kay Fatula. Because of you, I now can journal as long as I want. 

Thank you for visiting....Thank you very much.

Bragging time....

  • I never did this before. Somehow I need to give a pat on my back.
  • Without further ado....bragging time ( I never did this before, I told you earlier right?...so please please bear with me....)
  • One morning, I felt down and lousy....I open the CSI webpage and saw this.....
My page for These Shoes are Made for Walking has been selected as Most Wanted this week. 
Thank you...Thank You Very Much......

  • Tough colors for me this week. I wish I can finish fast this page and start a new one. But sadly I'm stuck..

    • Title direct on photo (my fav thing to do and $ effective)
