First halloween Layout

This is my very first halloween layout. We don't exactly celebrate Halloween in Malaysia. Recently there are more people dressing up for the occasion. Last week, we showed Lucas what a Jack-o-lantern looks like when we came across one while cafe hopping. He was a good spot posing with the lantern for us. :) So, I came out with this layout. Been wanting to do a black & white layout for sometime now. Never had the chance. So here's what I did. And oh, Happy Halloween to you if you are celebrating...


Supplies : 
Maggie Holmes Styleboard 6x6 Pattern Paper Pad
Crate Paper Portrait 6x6 Paper Pad
Amy Tangerine's Plus One Pattern Paper.
Black & White Cardstock.

Working with My Mind's Eye

Finally, I'm using one of my favourite patterned papers from MME - Lost & Found 2 collection (*which I have been hoarding). I did a layout for my cousin using a picture of her mum when she was a teenager. Over all, I used mostly MME products. I have also added some embellishments from Maggie Holmes. It took me only 15 mins to put together this layout.



Next up, is some Project Life spreads I did for May, June & July. Still lots of catching up to do but I'm almost there :D Definitely enjoying the process although I am very much behind. Just took some snapshots of the spreads I have completed.

New Workspace Tour

So far, September seems to be my favourite month yet! One of the reason is because we finally made our vision into reality. A new and organised workspace! * Doing the happy dance *

After a few weeks of back breaking cleaning, and stressful moments when things didn't turn out right, we finally have the workspace all done.

Bye August, Hey September.

August oh august, what a whirlwind it has been. You have been so hard on us. I will never forget the face of my uncle looking at my aunt for the very last time before they close the coffin. I will never forget the teary faces of my little cousins from that moment. Her trembling hands when she dress up her mum for the last time, having her quiet moments away from the crowd, the moment when the coffin was incinerated before our eyes. Each and every moment impacted me so much. So many questions why. Too many questions why.

Then, just two weeks after, I was mourning again. Hubby's grandma passed. Although, it wasn't as painful to see, as grandma lived a really fruitful life till 92. There was a glimpse of tearful moment when part of the ritual, Alex's uncle had to walk with kneels over to pay his last respect as soon as he got off the plane and reached grandma's resting place. The grief of a son for his mother... but in many ways, we try to celebrate a wonderful and strong lady she has been. Being able to live pass 90, to many is considered a great blessing.

Even when it all has passed, I'm still very much thinking of my aunt, & constantly, wondering how my cousins are doing. ALS/MND is just too cruel. It just is.

Just like that, time just flew by again. Wish there was a rewind button to go back where it all didn't happen, but there isn't. I'm trying my best to be strong and trying my best to be their big sister they can turn to and helping them whenever I can. I just celebrate my birthday but this year my wish is for time to be able to heal wounds & for everyone I love to have good health. Hoping September will be a better month.

Inspired by...

They say inspirations can come from anywhere. Somedays it's the colours I see, sometimes it's a pattern I observe. Today, I would like to share a layout which I did which was inspired by Studio Calico's Main Page. I scraplift the sketch and use some of the elements which inspires me from the page...


Here's my take!


Thanks for dropping by!

The hardest week...

Last week, I grieved for my dearest aunt. What seems like the shortest time, seems like the longest battle for her with MND (Motor Neuron Disease). She had such strong will to keep fighting even till her very last breath. Even as each hurdle came, she never gave up. We really do wonder where all her strength came from to be able to fight through it all. Our fond memories of her will forever be cherished and she will be remembered for the strong woman she is. You are dearly missed, my dearest Sei Kim.
