a hello & goodbye...

Hi everyone!
The third post of the week, I think I'm on a roll again. (or I hope so - and a big thanks for stopping by always).  In the past few weeks, work has got the better of me especially with the weekly flights and having to spend the week in the hotel and only weekends at home.  Finally after several months of traveling, I'm so looking forward to November and some major down time (more details on that later)...

First off... I got some {super}exciting news to share.  If you have been following me on facebook, you'll know that I've been jumping up and down and this amazing opportunity to be part of the Maya Road Design Team.  This came as a surprise and with my love for their product... I was definitely screaming at the top of my lungs YESSSS!

Thank you Maya Road, Caroline & Ronda for this amazing amazing opportunity...and also a big congrats to Leah & Mandy. And here's sharing a mini album that I recently created with some yummy maya road goodies along with the sweetest thing collection from MME.

Having lots of fun with the maya road kraft embellishments, just loving those butterflies and the kraft tags (especially the ones with the white outlines).  Also the wooden embellishments can be easily altered with ink or mist (here with the heart one, I used the mustard colored mist to paint on the embellishment and on another one, I lightly tapped with on the ink pad).

I've always been a big collector of maya road kraft envelopes and these new ones are just the perfect lenght to be included in their album... plus tons of room to store all those love notes... Also putting one of my typewriters to good use here... got out the hermes baby in script font!

and on a sad note... the Made With Love scrapbook store has closed its doors. although we are eagerly waiting to hear when they will re-open their doors again (refusing to believe that it will be a permanent decision), I'm already dearly missing everyone.

For me this is where my scrapbook journey started... 4 years ago when I came to Singapore and discovered this friendly store and the endless supplies of scrapbooking products. I still remember my first class on how to create a mini album using a chipboard album (seriously I didn't know what I had to do with chipboards). Then there was the Scrap Idol Challenge that gave me the opportunity to be part of their design team (a first for me).  And yes there's where it all started....

Thanks everyone for stopping by and hope you guys are having a great weekend!
