Sometimes I wish I were a kid again; skinned knees are a lot easier to fix than a broken heart.

That anonymous quote I got somewhere I don't remember now, don't you think it's so true?

I decided to start my 'wish' album somewhere last month. My rule is that, each of the layout that goes into the album, must have 'wish' on it.. either on the journaling, or the title, or the doodling, or the anything for that matter. That rule will be broken as I deem fit seeing that I'm the only contributor to the album. LOL.

Do you remember this layout? Yeah, that's the first layout in my Wish album. It has the word 'wish' in the journaling. Okay, My Wish Stack, seeing that i don't have an album for that yet. just so you know, I have not been scrap shopping for a few months!! Not a single piece of paper! What an achievement for me, can I hear some WOOOOT WOOOOTTTT!!?? Heeeheee!

Here's the cover.



Simple, with some Hambly gorgeousness. That All Mixed Up overlay did all the work, really. *grin*



Painted thickers. Those were baby blue before.



How could I resist those birds? *sigh*

Who am I joking, right? I could never create a thousand layouts for this project in this year, but hey, one can dream. . and I can always maybe add "2009-2029" on the cover as I deem fit (again)! *big grin*

And Oh, that quote on top.. just something I wanna share. My heart is not broken right now. It's so full I feel I could burst from all the love. Thank you for each and everyone of you that took time to leave kind, warm and encouraging words for me. Please know that you're appreciated. So much. *hugs*

Oh Sasha...you always amaze me with your work. I'm just working on a plain ol' simple LO here and I'm stumped. Wish I could create like you.

Oh my! What a beautiful page, so simple yet so so beautiful. It is such a great idea to do such an album. I have not scrapped since Thursday because we have been out of town but you just gave me an idea for a layout of our weekend. This is why I love the blog world, you meet great people and get awesome inspiration. Have a great Sunday.

Have I ever told you that not only am I a huge fan of your work, I'm also a huge fan of your writing? Love the way you express yourself thru words - your emotions, laughter and feelings that you have within you are so well written and expressed thru words, that I always feel like you're standing right infront of me, talking to me! :) *hugs*

Louisa May said...

Hey girlie !!! miss you so !! We must do kopi soon ! Counting down :) heh! LOVE your stuff - can fly or wish some talent this-a-way pleazzze !!!

Selena Kimsey said...

Sasha, you are so cute! You could always just add a dash after 2009 because then it is just open to whenever you finish the 1000 layouts. Tee hee.

I love the cover. You seriously ROCK the Hambly. Hambly is a stumbling block for me. I love the stuff, but I just don't have that knack.

And so cool how you painted the thickers. I so need to try that. Thanks so much again for such wonderful inspiration.

Melonie said...

WOW! How do you manage to make each project more awesome than the last? Beautiful.

Mary MacAskill said...

Sasha - you are so smart and creative. I wish I didn't have a million projects to finish or I'd be stealing this idea away for my own scrappin'! ;) Love your work, girl! And oh yes, congrats and good luck on the "no shopping." It is admittedly, not as much fun, but sometimes worth the wait before you buy something again! LOL!

Brenda Hurd said...
