First Birthday Canvas Album

Hi there! Thanks for being here! Hope you had a nice weekend and I hope this Monday's not too blue for you :) Today's post is to reminisce Lucas' first birthday ... my boy was born on 4th September 2010, that's 2 years ago. We celebrated his first birthday last year with just about everyone! Family, friends, church friends, colleague, ex-colleagues and wonderful people aplenty.

We had great photos taken at the party and I was planning to document the birthday in a special canvas album, so I ordered the album and all the embellies like back in September last year but I only managed to complete the album this year. Talk about procrastination! Here are the canvas pages which I had fun with lots of misting, iron-transfers and embellishing. I used a Prima Canvas Album 10" x 9" with 5 canvas inserts. Love the thick double layered inserts, perfect for heavy painting, misting and whatever not.

Here are my pages....

My boy is already 2 plus today and soon I will work on his second birthday album, I pray I won't take another YEAR to complete it! Here's a precious moment of us at his second birthday last month where I was showing him how much he has grown! :)

That's all for now, thanks for dropping by. Have a great week ahead!

Scrappy Crafty Chicas with CS Sketch #230

Hi again! I'm on a roll here. I actually created this layout this very afternoon itself. I'm suddenly just bursting with mojo after a full day workshop yesterday with Jaz Lee. I'll have a separate post on the class projects, it was such fun getting together with my croppy group of friends. In fact this photo print was given to me yesterday by Chris, a fellow crafter.

I got these papers from Papermarket at Raffles when I was down in Singapore in August. hadn't had the chance to touch it till today! *yay* Seriously I have stash enough to line up from here to Timbuktoo... and yet I still keep on hoarding and hoarding.... anyway here you go...

Layout using Teresa Collins' My Story. Banners are Hambly's.
These beautiful ladies, from left to right are... Yuz of Blossominch, Liza of MissCraftee and Chris whose gorgeous work is on display at Papier Love (LSS) and lastly that's me :)

Again, using an inspiring sketch from Creative Scrappers:

Here are some close-ups:

I had fun layering and layering...
Prima mask and gesso over a layer of bright orange spray-mist.
Tulle trim + fussy cut Hambly banner + liquid pearls.

Really lovin this color combo ^_^
I'm so happy I managed to complete a layout today and also finally get to update this blog.  Seeing my scrappy friends again really inspired me to keep up the craft despite my crazy work schedule :)

Have a blessed week ahead! XOXO

Kimchi Party with CS Sketch #229

Whenever I'm lacking mojo, I know I'll pick up some zest from Creative Scrappers, and this sketch plus all the DT projects gave me an idea to scrap these pics of me and the hubs at my 2011 birthday lunch. We both love kimchi so much we can actually eat it everyday!

Our Kimchi Party with Creative Scrappers #229

I so happen to have this 12' x 12' pattern paper with the grid pattern that matches the Korean decor of the restaurant. Those fussy cut butterflies are so gorgeous, they are from Graphics45 Olde Curiosity. Here's the inspiring sketch:

Here are some close-ups:

Close-up of the title plus some hidden kimchi in the 2 mini bottles maybe? And some 7G tape peeking up from underneath.

Love this satin Prima bloom with the ready blings in the centre.

Spray painted doilies, fussy cut butterflies and random bling.
Thanks for dropping by and have a great Sunday! :)
