so, what do we do... when life gets to you, when you feel as thou you've reached rock bottom. I do wonder how long it will take me to get out of this one.

Love the sizzix assignment for September - wedding theme - it really brings back the memories; although they are only about a year old, but it really feels like forever. Here's a few more peaks at the items - this time around it's a 8x8 layout and a bouquet of flowers (all from sizzix). I just couldn't wait to use the new sizzix dies that i had gotten yesterday - what a deal MWL had (4 for 44% off).
Also another peak - at the next dreamgirl challenge and if you haven't checked out the website lately - there's an awesome challenge going on right now "white-out" (there's still abit of time left if you hurry). When was the last time you create an all white layout?
Well off to bed for now... nite nite everyone!

anyway... have tons of stuff and fun to share...
first off... here's a layout that i finished in 1 hour! yes, that's a new record for me! would say it's a fun and simple one - using up my old pictures that have been hidden away for atleast 6 months now. Here are some random places that I had visited back in 2007 and using those gorgeous studio calico papers.
Also here's a peek at an assignment that I have been working on for MWL - wedding theme (ps. don't forget to check out the other MWL DTs - their assignments are absolutely gorgeous)
And of course if you haven't heard already... MWL is having a pasar malam event. Great deals & a superb auction... I could believe last night when someone walked away with the big shot express for only $109 SGD. WOW!! If you're interested, don't forget to stop by MWL @ 7:30pm and 9:30pm for the auction - a must not miss event!
So don't forget to head on down to MWL this evening! See you there! (if you see me, please stop by to say hi)

As for scrapping, today was the only day that I had a chance to just sit down a relax abit, and manage to get a few things done - assignments for MWL. Hoping to be able to show them in the coming days. For now... here's something that I completed earlier in the week, but never really had the chance to share....
This one is for all the wonderful memories at eperney & reims, the champagne regions of France. Yes.... it's champagne time!!!! and not to mention, the unbelievable miles and miles of cellar underground - amazing & yummy!
Thanks again for dropping by!

I love the new collection from My little shoebox, especially the "in bloom" collection - aren't the colors gorgeous!!! I just had to scrap these papers, without know what picture to use. Yeap, been doing alot of that lately, scrapping the page first and then finding the picture to go with it. And boy was I lucky to find this old picture of the "gang" when I was working in Brussels. The day out with the guys from work!
... here's a simple and fun one, really showing off these gorgeous papers... (still available at MWL if you hurry)
TFL & hope everyone had a good weekend!

"if life gives you lemons, make lemonade" which is so much easier to say than actually do
The past few days have been a rollercoaster ride, some up days and some down days (good/bad). But all in all, I guess it's all part of life. This one is again for my sis - another picture that we took when we were in europe april last year - wow, can't believe it has already been over a year since I last saw sis.
hope everyone has a nice and cheerful weekend! Should be a super fun one in singapore as it's the national day on the 9th, but unfortunately won't be in town to celebrate.
