~ On Display: Courtneys Digiscrappin ~

I played with Urban Scape kit by Courtneys Digiscrappin and came up with this: 

This page is about my observation of the roads in India. All I can say is it's a chaotic but organised mess on the roads. You have cars, buses, lorries, motorbikes, automobile rickshaws everywhere but somehow, they do give way to each other. Oh and they luv to horn a lot! I think their hands are perpetually stuck to the horn and all I hear is the constant horning on the road. Our driver told us that it's a warning to the driver in front that someone is coming from behind but I find it quite disconcerting. There is no regards for traffic lights (those on motorbikes are the worst culprits) and most roads don't have lines. Motorbikes are the main means of transport for most people including ladies. You can even see a family on a single motorbikes too. Oh and helmets aren't compulsory. It does takes a while to get used to it. 

The Urban Scape kit is available at Scrap Art Studio and is currently on sale. TTFN!

Recently joined Vicki Robinson's creative team. I have actually designed with her stuff over at Scrap Art Studio but luv them so much that I applied for her team and was accepted. She recently came up with a new kit called Happy and here's my page: 

Well, this page documents my trip to India. We had a 9 hrs layover at New Delhi airport and it was a nightmare! We had to re-checked our luggage at the domestic airport and waited three hours before the counters opened. Then an hour in the queue as they seemed to want to chat among themselves instead of serving passengers! Really frustrating! I had pre-booked a private lounge within the departure hall but I could only access it upon checked in so you can imagine my annoyance at the delay in check-in.  Oh well, this is India! Thankfully my two boys are seasoned travellers and put up with this blip without complaining. They certainly did help themselves to the buffet upon arriving at the private lounge. 

Vicki's currently guesting at Oscraps and her kits are 30% off.

Here's another one done using her Almost Spring kit: 

Her kits are fun to play with. TTFN!

Just realised how long it has been since I updated my blog. Well, not easy being a single mom who has to do everything now and there is just not enough time in a day to do what I want! Hubby is currently working overseas so I'm left to hold the fort here. It has been tough but somehow I'm coping well. I've been busy with work, boys' schedules and running the house so much so that I'm knackered at the end of the day. 

Anyway, here's a page done with Jenni Bowlin products: 

Jenni Bowlin Studio: Modern Mercantile, General Store Postage Kit, Jeweled Butterflies, Block Alpha Red On Black, Baby Boy Bingo Card Kit
Julianna Kniepp: A Slice Of The Good Life, Fly Away From Here

Will be back with more pages. TTFN!

~ Woot! ~

Long absence but February has been a very busy month for me. The first of many changes took place and can't say I'm happy about it but have to go along with it. 

On a happy note, I've been selected on the Jenni Bowlin Studio Digital Team. Looking forward to playing with their stuff again! TTFN!

~ 52 Weeks Selfies Challenge ~

I decided to embark on the 52 weeks Selfie challenge this year as I thought it would be more doable than Project Life. I didn't quite complete mine for last year. I initially followed a selfie group on FB and then decided to extend it to my group of besties. I introduced the idea to them and they loved it. So now, each week, we have a theme to do the selfie and so far we have been enjoying the process. It has certainly got us talking far more on Whatsapp too. 

Not satisfied with merely doing a selfie, I wanted to do a page to accompany the selfie too. So here are my first few selfie pages: 

 Week 1. Theme: Selfie
Anna Aspnes: ArtPlay Forester, Multi Media Flowers No1, Multi Media Frames No1, Multi Media Flowers No1, Project 366 Word Art No1
Cinzial: Date Stamps
Fonts: Rough Typewriter, Punkassbitch

 Week 2. Theme: Interesting background.
Val C. Designs: The Best Of
Fonts: RutmerHand, Rastalib

Week 3. Theme: Partial face.
Mye de Leon: Blush
Fonts: L.C. Smith 5 Typewriter, Pea Julie, KG One Thing

Yet to complete Week 4 & 5. I'm having so much fun doing it and it's not as stressful as Project Life. Hoping I will be able to finish it by the end of this year! It certainly helps taking it using my new iPhone 5S. The camera is so much better than my previous 4. TTFN!

~ GIS: Hybrid ~

OMG! I actually did a hybrid layout!

Kit: Crazy For You by One Little Bird

This was done for Get It Scrapped as part of their Hybrid article. I made use of an entire digital kit and came up with this page! I actually designed it digitally first then got the various elements on an A4 page to print out. 

Have to say, I rather do it digitally anytime! TTFN!

~ On Display: Mye de Leon ~

Oops! I've been taking a hiatus from blogging as a lot of changes have started coming my way. What seem like mere talk is now fast becoming a reality and I'm not sure if I'm gonna like it. Anyway, it has taken a slight toll on me and as a result, I'm a little slower than usual in creating. 

However, once I did get down to creating, there was no stopping me! Here's some hybrid projects that I did with Mye de Leon's kits:

 Kit: Blush

Kit: Blush

 Kit: Live Love Laugh

Kit: Unscripted

And some digital pages: 

Kit: Blush

Kit: Live Love Laugh, Painted Journal Cards, Veneer Journal, Wood Journalers. Also made use of Simply Tiffany Studios' Pocket Cards Set 2.
