I have been wanting to blog for the longest time! Sorry I couldn't make it here sooner. Those on my facebook will already know this - my mom was operated on last Friday. Thank you guys for your prayers, kind thoughts and comforting words.
We were all there for her by the time she got out of the OT, that, I'm thankful for. That and a lot more, actually. I'm thankful that so many people love my mom. Never-ending visitors, hugs and kisses and baskets of flowers and fruits and soups. Thanks guys, really. I might have been annoyed with some people (outside of the family circle), some of the time, but all is good now. . :D
She is home now, recovering well. I hope she will be back to 100% real soon.
I was done with this page a couple of days before she was admitted, but the photo taking got delayed until this morning. Just a simple one, that title, though, loaded with love. My mom, she just loves and loves and keeps on loving everyone. She is strict at work and when we were young.. but if she was not, then I won't be here. The amount of heartache I gave her when I was growing up, wow.. I can't even imagine.
I don't wish I can turn back time and be a good girl, because.. DUH, that won't be possible, we have to be realistic, no? I am just gonna hug her that few minutes longer from now on. And let her know I appreciate everything that she has done for me, doing for me and will be doing for me. Sorry for the sappy-ness overloaded, ok.. now the layout.
When i looked at this pic, this layout is kinda similar to my Night Owl layout, don't you think? :) Alike, but so different.
Stampin' Up Scallop Edge Punch and ric rac, again.
You can't find Hambly Dandelions paper in that purplish color, because I learnt from Dina (thank you, gorgeous) and sprayed glimmer mist on the Kraft Dandelions paper and then wiped it off to bring out the silver.
Then because I can't leave the layout alone, I punched some holes and tied red thread into what looks like bow, i hope. :D I'm hopeless with bow-tying. I don't even buy clothes with bows for my girls. Sham does.. and we only put it on when Daddy's around. LOL.
Okay.. what else. Oh yeah.. some links :)

Saturday, I'll be in the company of amazing ladies at Creative Escape "Works of Heart" 2009, helping Kah Mei, Tia Bennet and Donna Downey teach their classes. Excited? LOL.. Are you kidding me? I'm beyond excited..! *grins*
So yeah, that's about it. I think I wanna scrap today, but I have mountains of laundry to fold. Oh well, they won't scream for attention, so I'll be okay, me thinks. :)
Thanks for stickin' with me this far out.. *hugs*
