Lesson for today. . .

well, for me at least. Do not ever bother with make-up when you're going to the gym, because at the end of it, you're a freakin' meltin' hot mess anyway.

Just so you know, I am not a gym person, I do my thing outdoor, at the park, by the beach. But today, I actually gave in and stepped into the gym. Was pretty intimidated at first, but after a while.. oh well, I don't really care about other people anyway. I must say it's pretty nice working out with the view of the swimming pool and planes taking off and landing in front of you. Even though I really can only see the planes due to my shortage of tallness. Ha-Ha. I was pretty much the same height as the treadmill control buttons! Talk about intimidating!

I am still not a gym person as of now, but I think I can learn to love it. Let's move on to prettier topic, shall we?

A little while ago, the gorgeous Jeni Boisvert sent me some Shimmerz to play with! How sweet is that? Thank you Jeni.

I am not good with whites, I noticed. But I love that look, so Hambly to the rescue :) Orange overlay + white cardstock = pure deliciousness. Then, because the base is white, I went to town and added about a trillion other colors. Yes, I am an exaggerator :)

DYMO goodness + crackle paint + embroidery thread.

Close up of the gorgeous butterflies, I used Heidi Swapp mask and Shimmerz in Mango Madness! How cute is that name??!! Then outlined with Stickles in Star Dust. I really wish you can see this in real life because those Shimmerz, the end product is really this awesome, glossy perfection!

Making Memories brads + more embroidery thread + green felt ric-rac + Jenni Bowlin sticker. and Oh! Hambly Rub ons! Love that pop of hot pink, matches my DYMO refill :D

I don't know about you, but all the colors here. . . is making me giddy with excitement! LOL. And I really, really hope our LSS will bring Shimmerz into Singapore really, really soon. Boy, I need a COMPLETE collection and then some if you ask me! (just don't let Mr Husband know about this, okay? Okay.)
