Sketch Challenge #1 @ MWL

It's been abit busy around here as I try to catch up on work (been at the office until 10pm for the last few days) and also being sick (again). This weekend was the first time that I had a chance to do any scrapbooking and this is my first layout for the year.... which also happens to be my take on the sketch challenge going on at Made With Love (you have until Jan 21st to upload your take... can't wait to see them).

The picture was taken from our trip to Hua Hin over the new year... finally getting the chance to hang out with my sister after not seeing her since my wedding (which was about 1 year and a half ago). So happy that we decided on this last minute trip with my mother, ruben and sis... picture of mummy & sis... hanging out at the beach.

I decided to keep things simple for this layout... emphasising more on the pattern of the papers (i love love love love this collection from american crafts - letterbox, especially those glitter birds!!!) and a little bit of stitching. I am still wondering whether I should get a sewing machine, just love the effects on the papers that I have been seeing around the web... but then again, I have never sewn before. uhmmmm...

and then there's this adorable stamp that I got from stampingbella... that pretty much sums up what happiness is.

Supplies used include:
cardstock, pattern paper, pearl brads, button, chipboard frames, alphas: American Crafts letterbox collection; die cut (vintage letter): K&Company; flower dollies: SEI; vinyl appliques: Scrapworks; happiness stamp: StampingBella

thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check back tomorrow... have a few more layouts to share. :)
