Sketch frenzy

A FB friend of mine, Sasha Farina, came into our scrapbook group one day and invited us to participate in her challenge. She is one of Lilybee's DT and she posted #7 sketch challenge.

Boy, was I challenged.

I tried to adapt the sketch to A4 and this was the closest I could get. As I seldom worked with sketches, my results weren't too ideal cos I seldom thought so much. I did some seeing inking but this is still not my favorite layout at all.

A Little Shoebox card and a lotta love

Today we went out to celebrate my blessed sister Esther's birthday. One year ago hers was one of the first birthday cards I made, and when I look back I felt I need to make up for it (hahaha!)

I went to root around my stash and found My Little Shoebox stash and started working on it. MLS papers are designed to be so easy to work with, you really just need to put them together. So I did. Plus all those signature distressing and glittering I like to do.

I love how this turned out, and i'm glad everyone did too :)

A Card Make & Take Event

I realised I have not posted something for the past week.  I have been packing my scraproom to make space for my 2 growing girls.  Here's an update I've been wanting to post.

I teach a Scrapbook Interest Group (SBIG) on a regular basis at my workplace and recently we were invited to host a "make and take" for approximately 200 staff at a pre-annual general meeting event.  My fantastic co-scrapper Diana, who helped plan and pack the card kits, took these wonderful photos and made this collage for me.  So here it is, for sharing with you.

We had staff from directors to executives to junior officers who participated in this make and take and I daresay they enjoyed it.  The biggest satisfaction for this successful event came from the many that started off with, "I'm not good with crafts", "I failed arts and craft", "I'm not creative" and "I can't do this" finishing off with either a , "thank you!", "this is fun!", "it's quite easy!", "I learnt a new thing today".

To my very fantastic SBIG members, thanks to the many hands who helped make this possible & to Diana for the coordination.

Proud of the mini

Once a while, a mother is entitled to feel extraordinarily proud of her offspring. This is one of those times, where I think Ms E has graduated from being called "junior cardmaker" to "junior scrapbooker", if there was such a term.

Her form teacher at her preschool is leaving and she asked to make a mini album for Ms HanNi. I wasn't sure she could grasp the concept of blank mini but I think she did a pretty good job. My assistance came in helping her to fussy cut and stick down some elements (unsteady small hands), but the choice, placement and which elements to use were entirely hers.

I wish I had time to have the photos taken in the day, but being the anxious nature of children, she wants to send it off early first thing tomorrow morning.  So here are the photos taken at the desk.  Enjoy, I did :)
