Pencil Lines #111 - Sarah Jane Dowsett

What's with the once a week posting anyway? I'm still waist deep in assignments, which is good. Busy. I love being busy, love being swamped with assignments and datelines, love love love. Just me.

Monday morning in Singapore, time for Pencil Lines. New sketch is up with the talented Sarah Jane Dowsett guest-ing for us. If you have a minute, (or an hour or two - LOL!), do visit her blog and prepared to be awed :) She designs stamps too!! How fab is that?!

i treasure

The moments that we’re all together.
I treasure each and everyone of you.
I treasure us.

Please excuse the glare, tried as I might, can't hide from it. :D

Close ups, for me as much as they're for you.

close up 1

White lace cardstock, glimmer-misted with few colors. Faux pearls. Ticket and machine stitching. Random. Not so random.

close up 2

Alphas, stamped and embossed. Cranberry. Yummy. :) Yellow paper, yummier. Finishing soon, need to buy some more. Yellow, polka dotted paper that is. You have favorites? Recommend, okay?

close up 3

Love the krafty Fleur-de-lis. Yellow again. Might just be my new favorite color, don't you think?

The layout may be simple, but oh-so-close to my heart. *sigh* I love them so much. Let me introduce okay? Left to right - Neetu (#3), me (#1), Nish (#2), mama, papa and Reena a.k.a. Baby (#4). Yup, I'm the eldest. Neetu and Nish, they're twins and 7 years younger than me, Baby is 11 years younger than me.

In real life, we look so much like each other. Cases of mistaken identity? Always. The dry-cleaning lady will give Neetu my dress/ or tell her the dress is not ready yet and why was she there? , her friend will chat me up like she has known me all her life, things like that. On the phone, we sound alike too. Mama used to get confused. Not anymore, what with the caller ID and we all not living together anymore. :D

I'll be back soon with some Tulip goodness! Very very soon I might add.

How pretty, Sasha! I have a hard time with yellow, but you make it look so easy. I have tried a bit of it lately mixed with gray, but still don't make it look as flawless as you. Love the wood grain, too. And what a sweet, sweet photo.
