I hope you're hungry!

Presenting Baker's Dozen, Petit Fours, Tea Cakes and Scones!

To say I'm in love, is an understatement. I shall not bore you with mundane gushing, okay? I think you already know what I'm gonna say when I am absolutely head over heels smitten :)

On to the layouts. I got myself all three add ons and had a grand time mixing them all! That is just the icing on the cake, the fact that they gel together very, VERY well! *sigh* sorry.. I know I'm gushing.


My youngest sister, and Neha. Eleven years apart, they're practically sisters. They annoy each other, a lot. LOL.

close up 1

I had to resist the urge to use the Martha Stewart's lace die-cut and Dahlia stickers on every page! Stickled (is there such a term?), as you can see!

close up 2

Punched out a butterfly fom the tag, replaced with another punched butterfly from a different colored cardstock. Red twine which is fast becoming a staple around here can be seen too. And *gasp* I tied a bow! And *gasp* again, handwritten journaling, one sentence. LOL.

While you're there, just take a look at the gorgeous, gorgeous Jute. *sigh* i can't wait to get my hands on them :)

first in line

Nidhi, always need to be the first in line to shower. Always. I have no idea why.

close up 1

Stamped that gorgeous Doily Stamp on kraft, embossed with red embossing powder.

close up 2

Misted kraft, I used a different brand, but I imagine you can get the same effect with Garnet Mist.

close up 3

Fern Green Mist. Just one spritz for that gorgeously intense color. Love.


My girls and their best friends at Sea World, Gold Coast. Ready to swim with the dolphins. One of them has Starbucks as a name. Not one of the girls, one of the dolphins. *grins*

close up 1

This one makes me sooooooooo happy! I have a feeling I will be 'paper strips' kinda girl for a while now. LOL. The Making Memories Paper Shreds Findings, misted very lightly from afar, with Fern Green (again) and some yellow :)

close up 2

Letterbox Frames - painted with Mustard Seed Crackle Paint.

close up 3

Again, painted yellow. I am in the mood for yellow lately! LOL. And that punched butterfly, was from the tag on my first layout up there.


Surprise! Layout about me! Heh! I suffered from food poisoning halfway through the flight. It was so bad I wanted to lie down and die. *grins* Glad I did not though. Will miss living too much.

close up 1

The lace die-cut again, this time lightly misted with Orange. Pink tag, misted with super red mist, you can try Garnet. It's the same kind of deep red. I love deep red. Much.

close up 2

That exclusive SC paper in the Baker's Dozen, had me swooning! *sigh* I had a hard hard time cutting it up.

So there goes my first gallery for Studio Calico. I am nervous. LOL.

I'll see you soon, yes? :)

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
