the flood situation around our house has gotten worst (in general all of outer bangkok) - areas that were dried last weekend are now seeing some water or are flooded and this time around, mummy has started packing the essentials that she would be able to carry in case she has to evacuate the house. guess now we are coming to terms with not only the damage to house (in case water gets in) but also what would be stolen if we are to evacuate.
life sure does work in mysterious ways
but before disappearing for a few days again, here are some pictures of previous projects that I haven't had a chance to share here yet.
Pink Paislee Halloween Project - using the new Phantom Collection & 7Gypsies tray. ( more details on the pink paislee blog post here - would love to hear your thoughts)
Lily Bee Fall Card & Tags - using the new Harvest Market Collection and having fun with the silhouette machine.
And lastly, here's a sneak of the layout that I created for Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party! Remember there's no such thing as being late to this party (more details here):
Also for those in Singapore - just wanted to let you know that I have some grab bags up for sale again (more details here and quantities are limited).
Thanks everyone for stopping by and all your wonderful support.

There are online classes for everything these days, and Shimelle has been teaching online scrapbooking classes for years - but she's decided it's time to kick it up a bit and go from online class to a four-week online party, and you're invited. Pretty Paper Party is the party to attend if you have a collection of paper stacked up for a rainy day, if you have more scraps of paper than you know what to do with (but you know you don't want to throw them away!) and if you've ever put a piece of paper back in your stash because it was just too special for the photos at hand. Through printable prompts and tutorial videos, Shimelle and dozens of special party guests will share beautiful and innovative techniques you can achieve with the paper you have already collected.
Now doesn't that sound like an absolutely amazing party? And I'm thrilled and honored to be one of Shimelle's special party guest and the best part is, I also get to bring a friend along. So if you're interested in coming to one of the best pretty paper party ever (with super yummy cupcakes), then leave a comment on this blog post sharing which is your favorite paper collection of the season. You have till midnight Tuesday Oct 18th to post your details and I'll randomly draw the lucky guest on Wednesday morning. If you've already signed up, you can still enter the giveaway and if chosen, Shimelle will refund the cost or you can give the class pass to a friend.
Although class starts today, but as with any good party, it's okay to arrive fashionably late. The class has no deadlines and everyone receives permanent access to all the class materials, so anyone can RSVP to the party at any time!

Welcome to the Get Picky 1st Birthday Blog Hop!
We are celebrating our first year with a very exciting reveal as we unveil our 13thSketch with you today and share the beautiful creations of both present and past designers from our first year!

We are also offering a major prize along with the chance at a Guest Designer spot for the month of November if you visit and leave a comment at all of the blogs in our blog hop and participate in Sketch Challenge #13. The Blog Hop starts today and will remain open until midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on October 28th so this will give you all plenty of time to visit everyone’s blogs and create a layout for the sketch challenge.
Here is Sketch #13
And here is my layout - using the fun Random Collection from Crate Paper (with a touch of peppermint also):
As we mentioned, there are lots of great birthday pressies up for grabs along our hop today. Some of our designers will be offering a RAK of their own and of course there is the chance to become our Guest Designer for November....but what's a celebration without that very special gift.
We are so very excited to also announce that Imaginisce have been kind enough to sponsor us with an awesome prize for our very special birthday celebration.
