is melting. . .

Yeah, Sasha is melting over here. The weather is urghhh... 9.30pm, we're still at 89F. So, no.. I don't think it's unreasonable to be wanting this at any given time of the day!



This, my friends, is my bowl of coconut ice-cream with mango cubes! My flavor of the month as recognized by my wonderful, Mr Husband :D Looks plain, right? LOL.. it's anything but so. I enjoyed other flavors as well, their coffee with crushed oreos -->> yummy as well! Next visit, I'm gonna try banana with chocolate syrup and rainbow sprinkles! *grins*


Ookay! Enough ice-cream talk, yes? :)

One layout to share. My Little Shoebox generously sent Hambly girls some stuffs to play with! Thank you MLS!! Cuteness exploded out when I opened the box. LOL. Not very sure I do cute well though. You think? *giggles*

home

Used the frame of the Gretchen die cut paper, and Antique White on Kraft woodgrain paper.

Buttons buttons buttons! Used Adirondack Dimensional Pearls in Butterscotch to draw the outline the windows and chimney. Stitched the roof. And how do you stick thickers to felt? I had to use glossy accents.

I stickled some part of the woodgrain paper. Thought of using many colors here, but decided against it as I do not wanna give you a headache, or myself for that matter. The buttons are already colorful enough, no? :)

Keeping it real :) Day in and out, a whole lot of crankiness takes place in my house. Sometime it's Neha, sometime it's Nidhi. . most of the time it's just plain ol' Mommy! LOL!! *grins*

We're leaving for Langkawi in a few short hours! 33 to be exact! As usual, I'm far from being packed and ready. I have the addresses of some of the must-go restaurants though :)

In between tantrums and crazy weather, I know we're gonna have a great time. Sand, sea, chocolate, seafood. . .what's not to enjoy? :) My first time there after 18 years I think? First for the rest of the fam! *grins*

What else? Oh.. I haven't finished packing. Better get back to it! Love you all!

Gorgeous, gorgeous! How cool is that stickling on the woodgrain? Love that! Plenty of crankiness goes on in my home, too - that keeps things exciting, doesn't it? ;-) Have a GREAT time on your trip!!

deana said...

Something tells me that the coconut ice cream + mango makes the crankiness go away.... :-)

Lovin' the Stickles on the woodgrain. I have Stickles & have remained unispired to use until now... genius idea. :-)

Have a GREAT trip!

Sasha, that ice cream and mago looks totally yummy! I sure could go for that even if it's only 9:30am!! LOL!!! It's always a good time for ice cream.

Love what you have done with the MLS products, even if they are cute (which you do wonderfuly - btw) you still manage to incorporate your funky edge to that cute line, the result....fabulous!!! It would such a thrill to scrap with you! If you ever come to Canada, let me know! ;)Have a great week!
