Pencil Lines #110 - Cecile Lundstad

And another week. . . and another week. Is it just me? I feel rushed. Shortchanged of my time here. Here as in right now, with my 8 and 6yrs olds. Here as in right now, living the last week of school for this year. Here as in right now, with my soulmate of 10 years. Gosh I'm getting all teary eyed and sentimental.

Sketch #110 is up at Pencil Lines. Cecile Lundstad is with us this week. Have you seen her layout? So lovely. . I could stare at it for hours. *sigh* The amount of talent and inspirations you can find on the Net is simply, seriously amazing.


No complicated detailing works, but I love close-ups, so here you go :)

Love the part stickin' out... Yummmm :)

Wanted the rub on swirls to pop up a little bit, so I rubbed on patterned paper, and only glued down parts of it.

What else? Ohh.. I turned 30 last week. Big deal? No. I guess I'm growing up LOL. Evolving. The Husband and The Girls wanted to surprise me, but I spoilt their plans when I woke up while they were 'preparing' for it. Thank you loves, really. These are the people who loves me. They love me, crazy hair, sleep in my eyes, yesterday's face, sans make-up. . . they still love me. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

We proceeded with lots of eating session thru-out the day. LOL! More to come, I'm sure!! So-so bad for my waist line, not that I have any. Brownies anyone? Or Double Chocolate with Oreo? Maybe a scoop of Chocolate and Peanut Butter ice cream... Yummmm!

The Sneaks are up for Label Tulip November! With mouth-watering names like Secret Recipe, Bon Appetit, Hors d'oeuvre and A la Carte, there sure is something for everyone! *grins* I'm rolling around in them as we speak LOL. There's a Project Kit this month too!! Home For The Holidays - is just what you need to maximize scrapping time during this busy time of the year. Wow.. I sound like an ad.. LOL. But really, click that link and you'll see how hard is it not to fall in love and start gushing :)

How was your weekend? We spent Saturday at Neha's school. It was a total blast. Imagine spending 6 hours with hundreds of shrieking girls, yeah, that pretty much sums it up? LOL!

Enough updates from me for now.. would love to hear from YOU!! *hugs*
