My Favorite Aunt - Back from Virginia, US

This blog has been neglected. Amidst work, friends and family, there was hardly time left for the hobby. When I thought I could catch up on scrapping during the Chines New Year period, I was so wrong. Kind of. Time was mostly spent with family (unlike previous years) as my favorite aunt came back from the States. The last time I saw her was 16 years ago! Instead of doing the usual 12x12 layout, I did this for her. It's now sitting at her home in snowy Virginia! I guess that's as far as my creation would travel, for now. 


Materials used: My Mind's Eye, SEI, Prima, Tim Holtz, Maya Road and Hambly.


And because time was spent mostly with long lost relatives. It's tradition not to visit a relative's or friend's home empty-handed. I made this as well, for an uncle's very palatial home. 


Materials used: GCD Studio, DCWV, Hambly, K & Co, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen, Prima, and American Craft.


I was really thrilled when my creation blended in perfectly with the decor of his house. I was so afraid that it would stick out like a sore thumb. It's comforting to know that some things don't change after a decade. :)

I WON!!!

I went into the office and did my usual this morning. First 20 minutes of the day is always, without fail, dedicated to Facebook and my RSS. Then I saw this!


Here are some of the details.

I let out a, "WHOOP!" and clasped my hands in front of my mouth! That's how surprised I was. I don't think I've won anything my entire life ever... So this was a BIG thing. H.U.G.E. Of coz, it served as a motivation to push myself further.

Thanks to the MWL Design Team for making this happen! Yipee!!!

Thought I would give blogging another chance. Here's the inception entry. Perhaps this blog will have more concise thoughts rather than the ramblings and musings of a 20-something. As far as possible, I would like this blog to have a theme centered around scrap booking, as far as possible. :) We know we all can't help penning our thoughts down on the everyday stuff from time to time. So, enjoy the ride with me and see where this takes us!
