Mini Album - Australia

WARNING : This post is overloaded with pictures. You have been warned.

After having work on this Amy Tangerine Daybook/ mini album for weeks... I finally completed it. Earlier, I have blogged about it here. Placement of photos in the album are not in chronological order as my trip was cut short, So I placed them randomly behind :)

I had a hard time photographing the album because it is so thick!
Anyways, I will let the pictures do the talking :) Thanks for looking!

It's May...

 ... and Mother's day is just around the corner. I figured that I should start making some cards for the occasion. It took me some time to work on it. :D Here's what I have made...

Next is a card I made using Crate Paper fourteen & Maggie Holmes collection.
I'm loving my new Silhouette... I've never imagined of owning such a wonderful tool. 
I used Maggie Holmes paper behind the cut outs and it was a perfect match. Totally in love with the colour tone.

Thanks for looking. Hope you have a great weekend ahead! Now, off to clean up the mess I made :)

Scrap Around The World - May Challenge

Hie there! How have you been? Oh well, some of my friends may already know but I am actually back home from my trip to Aussie. It was unfortunate that my trip was cut short, due to the passing of my grandma. We were glad we came home in time for the funeral. It was quite sad that she didn't manage to see us for the last time before she passed away. Would like to express our thank you to relatives & friends from near & far who came to pay their last respects and also, those who expressed their condolences. We know that grandma has now gone to a better place and has been relieved of her suffering. 

I haven't been creating layouts for awhile now. Trying to find my cue back :)
When I saw this challenge from Scrap Around the World at Jessy's blog, I wanted to give it a try to see if my mojo is still around.

The rules are simple.

All you need to do is be inspired by the mood board (in ANY way) & use their sketch as your starting point.  

Here's my take on the challenge...
Definitely a challange for me :) Moving out of my comfort zone and trying new things like, clustering banners, using rustic designed papers... LOL mixing different elements around...

I was inspired by the blue wooden door, when I chose this patterned paper. Playing around with the colors shown on the mood board as well :)

Some close up shots from the layout...

Banners inspired by Cindy's card. She's so talented... :)

Thank you so much for dropping by. Do come and join in the fun! Challenge ends midnight EST Saturday 25th May 2013.
