Then I said goodbye. . .

Yes I did :) I decided not to accept the offer to extend the Design Team contract with Hambly. No drama at all, I just need to be somewhat dateline-free for a while. It was a hard one, that decision. If you were on my facebook you probably would have noticed some status updates sung in this tune. Thank you for the kind words, you know who you are :)

I've enjoyed my term with Hambly tremendously and I am still in love with each and everyone of the girl there. The talent and sweetness they have over there is amazing and I am very grateful to be amongst them for the past one year. I know my love affair with Hambly is not about to end so easily, so yes, you'll still be seeing Hambly goodness here on the blog.

Be4 i 4get ~ a layout :)



Do you remember those photos? I just wanna remember how happy she was there on his shoulders. *speaking of which, she is now on my lap, hugging me with all four limbs. it's incredibly warm (86°F as we speak) to be sitting this way while blogging, but LOL.. I'll take what I can get.* She is still at the super cuddly stage, so guess I'm lucky.



Did this while my puter was down a while ago, thus the handwritten journaling. *shivers* i am still learning to love my handwriting :)



My favorite part.. the clear bubbles. They're actually cheap (SGD1.50 per pack) stickers for mobile phone. I used about half a pack for this layout.



And the title, Brown Hambly Vintage Banners rub on, on white. Then I misted it with some of my favorite colors :)

*sigh* I love this layout very very much. Must be those photos. I can almost hear them laugh. :)

I'll be blog hopping after my evening shower, so I'll see you soon!!

*hugs*

A lovely LO!!! I love everything about it, but I always love your LO's, I like your style so much.

I'm sorry to hear you're leaving Hambly, I've never had the pleasure to play with one of their products, but because of you some of them ended up on my ever-growing wishlist. Still, there are priorities to be made in life, so glad that you figured out yours!
