When you have more dream than sense in your head

it could be a beautiful thing, don't you think? In your head, everything is possible. In there, you're everything and everything is you.

Right now, I'm dreaming about a trip to the beach. Preferably the one in my layout below, but I'm not fussy, any beach in Phuket/Koh Samui/Bora Bora/Bali will do. *Mr. Husband, are you reading this? LOL*

delight

Love the look of the silver hanging heliconias against white cardstock. It has got that airy feel without looking too bare, me thinks.

Red misted butterfly = Scenic Route chipboard. Just so you know, I misted it like one year ago. LOL. Was meant to go on another layout back then, but decided against it at the last minute.

Prima, gorgeous swirls. Cut apart and re-assembled 'my freestyle' way, suits the butterfly better IMO.

close up 2

Black Glitz Netz, painted with Broken china crackle paint. Love it when some pieces fall off the netz, giving it the "I'm weathered but absolutely fabulous" look. *grins*

Shipping tags, misted, stamped, inked = the works.

That stays a dream, though. The girls are busy preparing for their coming Final Exams, which means mommy is nowhere near a beach as well. Heh. We, yes, all three of us have been studying. Not that mommy is of much help with the Maths especially. LOL. Me and numbers, we hate dislike each other. Thank God for answer sheets!!

Last night, both girls slept in my bed. That means I hardly get any sleep myself. All that squirming and tugging and pushing, too much for me. LOL. I need a nap now!

I'll be blog hopping later today, so I'll see you soon, yes?

xoxo :)
