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...
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.
Scrapped the cutest picture of A and L taken during our visit to the Butterfly farm last week...
I created a simple layout using the colours of the challenge as background. My DH asked my if my background is "Washi Paint" *LOL* I told him, I couldn't decide if it looks more like washi tape or paint... so "washi paint" it is... :D
How has your journey been for 2014? Sorry I am kinda disconnected for the past few months. Just last month as i have blogged earlier, DH had a bike accident and was admitted & had to go through some surgery. A month has passed and he's now doing much better. He recuperated well at home. Few days back, my mum was back in the hospital again as well... This is one of those events in life that makes you think a lot and appreciate life each passing day. I am trying to stay positive and I often joke with my friends that I'm now an expert in packing hospital bags. Well, truly, events like this help us grow. I think that I was calm and was able to handle the situation well when I was heard the bad news.
Last week, we celebrated 5 years as husband and wife. I did a little gift for him. A gift that would be a reminder of the journey and good times. Treasure moments spent together each day.
I have been putting this off for over a year now. This is a picture of Lucas' 1st birthday. I was suppose to create a layout for this milestone but somehow, it got delayed. Finally, while taking a break from work and all, I manage to create this with mostly Dear Lizzy's day dreamer collection. Hope you like it.
Up on Mei Li Paperie's blog, I blogged about one of my favourite scrapbooking product, the 6x6 paper pad & how versatile it is. Also, I have a promo code at the end of the post, just for you, up on the blog for a 15% off 6x6 Paper pads (excluding those on clearance). Code expires Midnight on Sunday 25th May (Hong Kong Time).
Sorry for the delayed post. It has been a hectic week as DH met with a bicycle accident and had to be admitted to the hospital for surgery. He's now back home after a week at the hospital and recovering. Hopefully, all will be well soon :)
Without further adieu, let's talk about the new challenge which is still ongoing at Mei Li Paperie. The challenge is simple. How am I inspired by this picture to create my project.
I did a layout using pictures from my travel adventures around the world. I was inspired by the colours in the image so I used grey & bright colours like red, yellow & blue in both my photos & embellishments. I used multiple photos on my layout as it reminds me of the hanging gondolas on the ferris wheel. Heidi Swapp Magic Chipboard alphas were the perfect addition to represent the lights on the ferris wheel and I inked these with gold ink. I also love the chipboard stickers from Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Collection.
