Just stick 'em down

I've been keeping really busy with Heroes Season 2 (finally got round to watching it), then a couple of episodes of Bionic Woman, then came Chinese New Year and now its Valentine's Day come and gone. Whew! And it ain't over yet. This weekend will probably be the BUSIEST for us. Starting tomorrow, we have 4 birthday parties to attend (albeit one is happening at Ty's school in the morning) plus 3 open houses to go to and that's not including our own joint open house at night. On Sunday we have 1 malay wedding, 2 birthday parties, 1 open house and kiddie hash to go to at Crocodile Beach.

So with much thought, planning and decision making, I've decided that we can only attend on Saturday the 1 birthday party in the afternoon, then rush over for a friend's open house that same afternoon. At night, we will split up and I will attend 1 birthday dinner (which is actually my grandma's so really cannot miss lah) whilst the Hubby stays home for the other one and at the same time entertain guests for our joint open house. On Sunday, I've already decided to skip the malay wedding as my present has been 'kirim-ed' (sent) through my colleague and just go for kiddie hash and the birthday dinner at night. Afternoon birthday party and open house will be optional based on how keen we will be on going come the said time as I think we all still need a bit of our Lazy Sunday relaxation.

Again, have not been scrapping lately. Only managed to do one tag for Scrappin Kids'
charity drive so the LO below is something old. I always have trouble getting started on a project of any kind and for this one I tried putting myself in a 'just-glue-and-stick-paper' kind of mode and used coordinating paper from a Basic Grey 6x6 pad. I was even too lazy to pull out my paints so I merely inked the raw chipboard brackets with an ink pad.

Materials: Textured Cardstock: Bazill Basics Bling; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock Tag and Die-cut stickers: 7 Gypsies; Chipboard Clock: Cherry Arte; Chipboard brackets: Fancy Pants Design; Ribbon: K & Company and American Crafts; Ink: Tim Holtz and Making Memories; Rub-ons and Staples: Making Memories; Pen: American Crafts.

Despite it being a "just stick it on" LO, it looks GREAT!! Most importantly, the moment has been treasured..and something for Ty to remember!
Love it!
