For the love of DMC321

First, I must thank all of you for the kind, comforting words you left me. I treasure each and everyone of them. You have no idea how much you helped me deal with this whole thing. Dear friends, deep from the bottom of my heart, thank you so very much for being there, for your hugs and kisses, for being you. I *heart* you.

Now let me share some craft-ish tags I made before I left for Langkawi last month.

Last month, we were told to scraplift each other. How fun, right?!! When I was assigned to lift the gorgeous Dina Wakley, my mind went blank for a good 30 minutes. LOL. She is like THE goddess, THE artist! *shivers* :D

After that, a lot of ideas came running into my head and it hurts! LOL. She is that good. Whenever you're stumped, just please do yourself a favor.. visit Miss D, she will bring your mojo back in no time at all! I promise :)

I decided to play this time and not create a layout (even though I'm lifting layouts).

my awesome you

I used to stitch a lot. I've been a cross-stitcher since I was 12. At the age of 27+ I decided to jump into scrapbooking, head first. but I dragged my DMC321 along for the ride. LOL. DMC321 = red. Yummy red. You can see how much I love this red, eh? :)

I was looking for fun, I got fun! I had a blast playing with Hambly goodness, Glimmer Mists and Embossing Powders. To me, these tags proved that with a little rub-ons, some stickers and ink, (maybe not just that, I obviously used some scrap pieces of overlays, pearls and CS as well, and oh.. my DMC321) you can produce something, something you ought to love to bits. I know I did, as these are meant for my girls.. and urmm.. they're still in my possession right up to this minute. I will definitely hand them over, just not now. *grins*

For more eye-candies, please visit the scraplifts gallery by Hambly Girls! :)

I have two little girls camping in my living room right now, so I better start making my way to bed, manouvering my way amidst that huge tent and those cuddly toys and pillows ~ so not easy, i tell you that much. I'll be lucky to get into bed before 2am. LOL :)

Love you much, friends! xoxo :)
