Simple Fun

I read Panda's blog today and thought this was a fun post to do...(not to mention that it also gives me something to post about - yup my life has been rather unexciting lately).

What was your first......
  1. SB item bought? A Fiskars paper trimmer from Inksquisite, Oz
  2. layout? Ty @ 6mths in a Tigger suit
  3. concert? Jewel
  4. handphone? A Nokia brick (quite literally)
  5. boyfriend's name? Kevin
  6. job? A data recorder (don't ask)
  7. vacation as an adult? Inter-railing through Spain
  8. pet? Shared a puppy called Bobby with my brother
  9. designer handbag? Now would that be a fake or an original one? LOL
  10. grade teacher's name? Ms Salwah (i think)
After such a long long break from scrapping, I've finally started again and decided to do a simple page with little or no journaling required. Easiest to do would be a photo that speaks for itself.

Materials:- Textured Cardstock: Bazill Basics; Patterned Paper: DCWV; Chipboard Number: Fancy Pants Design; Vinyl Alpha: American Crafts; Paint & Glaze: Making Memories; Pen: Zig.

I had fun using the Nana Kids stack from DCWV. Love the bright and cheery colours.

On the tv series front, I'm finally caught up with C.S.I Season 8, Grey's Anatomy Season 4 and The Dresden Files which I think only has one season to its name. Next I'm about to start with Private Practice (yup all 9 episodes to date which according to the Hubby has finished downloading just today!). Think my eyes are going square soon. LOL!

On a separate note, its Kiddie Hash weekend this Sunday. Hooray!! Its been AGES since the last one (quite literally 4 weeks i think) and the family is just raring to go. Morley Movers here we come!!

Eye candy anyone?

Last Sunday night I was in my scrap room just being mojo-less on a half finished page when The Hubby came in and said 2 words - CASINO ROYALE. I dropped everything and rushed out to snuggle on the couch to watch Bond, James Bond.

I'm a HUGE Pierce Brosnan fan especially when he played James Bond. But Daniel Craig ain't so bad in my book either. I thought he was yummy in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider but *gasp* he's gotten even yummier as Bond. Till today Daniel Craig has been on the periphery of my mind. So I thought let's google him to whet the appetite a bit and what do I find but this...

Mind you, this was at work as well. I obviously didn't get much work done that afternoon. *wink wink*. Boy I can't wait for the next Bond film (Quantum of Solace) to be released. November seems much too long to wait though. But never mind, I hope to have sweet dreams tonight!! (I'm pretty sure The Hubby won't mind. LOL!).

It's been a looooong time...

...since i last blogged. No excuses really. Just been too lazy to upload pictures onto the blog and not really been scrapping. But I'm happy to say that I'm back in the game and in the past 2 weeks, managed to scrap 2.5 pages. The 0.5 page has hit a brick wall in terms of title and journaling placement so I'm taking a break from that now.

I've also recently joined a scrapping forum called Scrap n Crop along with Jazz, Yu'er, Panda and many more local and overseas scrappers. I've only started exploring it fully last night but I think its gonna be fun!!

But let's see, since mid-Feb, nothing much has been happening. I was in KL in the 1st week of March for a course. Came home with a Nintendo Wii which probably didn't help in motivating me to scrap. Hehe. This time in KL I managed to make my way to........


(sorry for the shoddy photos)

(Hehe look who I saw on the display window...someone who don't look so sleepless to me)

Unfortunately, I missed Shar by a couple of minutes. Darn!! We'll meet next time ya!! Needless to say shopping was fun. Tee hee.

I also received a LO of Jay from Edleen which you can check out here. It was for a photo swap that we did and I love it. I usually work in 12x12 format so I don't have a 8.5x11 album. But who cares I stuck it in Jay's big album anyway. Thanks loads Edleen. Love the LO and the little RAK that came with it!!

Last but not least, March was the month in which Jay started walking! Hooray. I was feeling that he's been a little bit behind in the development stage...in particular his teething. Haha. To date he only has 6 teeth (4 up and 2 down). But I guess all good things come slowly eh!! Oh but now he's starting to really get into things...including my scrapping stash. Erk!!
