My Daemon Avatar (non-scrap related)

Last week I went to Icklebooks and its owner recommended a book called The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. And then an old friend of mine suggested I check out this link which is on her blog and whaddya know it's the link for The Golden Compass which has been made into a movie starring Nicole Kidman and yummy James Bond actor Daniel Craig...yes I'm a sucker for cool and suave men like Bond.

So I checked out my Daemon and it turns out looking like a...erm...dare I say...a rodent???!!! Heh its actually an ermine but sure looks like a rodent huh. Hmmmmm... so yeah I think I'll go read the book first. dr.rin, we'll discuss the books after we both finish reading ok!! Hehe.

So go ahead people and tell me if my daemon is really my match. Maybe I'll morph into something else.

Wow it has been a long long time since I last blogged. Been pretty busy at work and so addicted to Facebook that I don't seem to have found much time to scrap *smack wrist*. Plus my scrap room was such a mess from my last trip to Singapore that it just didn't inspire any creativity. I had stuff all over the floor, table and chair till there was no place to sit let alone scrap...LOL. So I'm just showing something old...when creativity was low.

Materials:- Textured Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Patterned Paper and rub-on: Basic Grey; Chipboard Swirls: Fancy Pants Design and Maya Road; Rub-on title: Making Memories; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Pen: Zig Millenium.

I didn't really like this picture cos the colour seemed a bit off. Simple and plain work and finally got to use some swirls (which I can't seem to stop buying). Used only Basic Grey PP with simple layering. The only fun thing I did was use my Sew Crafty machine by Provo Craft for the first time. I got it from P2P before Mummy Chan sold it and it actually doesn't work the way its supposed to...well I couldn't get it to work as it should. I had to use the manual roller to make it work. But the stitches were great and the machine was very easy to use. It sure beats handstitching and the time it would have taken!!

Its Kiddie Hash weekend this week and I think the whole family is really looking forward to it. We've all got our shoes (football boots actually) and cheap tracksuit bottoms so we're much better prepared this time. I'm hoping the weather will remain dry so the hash won't be muddy. Tee-hee...ya ya I know hashing is supposed to be a 'get dirty activity'...well not for me if I can help it. Ty loves going as he gets to play with stones, sticks and sand...his 3 favourite outdoor material. The hash is open to anyone who's interested (starts at 4pm) and I heard we will be at 'Diplo' this time (near the Culture Youth & Sports Building). Some people bring their babies in backpack carriers and this just amazes me cos the babies plus carrier must weigh quite a bit. If anyone is interested, let me know and I can give you the contact of someone who would know more about the Kiddie Hash.
