In Denial

yes, my 10th Mother's Day and I'm in denial. How could I have been celebrating Mother's Day for 10 good years and there are still a lot more to learn about being one itself? If only children come with Instructions Manual, eh? If only. For now, I'm winging it. Love, logic and a little bit of crazy thrown in for good measure should do it.

Just so you know, I'm having a hard time stringing a sentence right now. The puter's CPU is making some kind of noise. Irritating is an understatement. It's making me cranky and I don't function very well when I'm cranky. I can't even take photos when I'm cranky. Silly. I need earplugs.

Best if I just show you the layouts, yes? Top three from my Granny's Cupboard gallery :)

27 yrs

This one looks better in real life, trust me. Those splatters and stamped image? It's actually silver. Yes, awesomely gorgeous Silver Plated Mist.

Yummy round binding edge punch.

This is not a layout about my age. I'm way past 27. :) It's about how long I took to get back to Sentosa Island here in Singapore. And I used the sticker with an image of a telephone on it because I had to call my mom to ask how old was I when I was last in Sentosa. LOL.

What took me so long? I have no idea. I have been staying in Singapore for at least eight years! :) Now that the spell has been broken, I bet you'll be seeing us there more often.

I need to add some journaling on this one.

Storytime Alphabets. I think you already know how much I love that set.

You can see I used both of my monarch butterfly punch and the open scallop edge punch. I gotta feeling open scallop is gonna be a favorite amongst the favorite.

You can also see the photo close up. She was truely, without a shadow of doubt, happy at that moment. Makes me happy, that photo.

the good life

Went mist crazy on this one, and had fun stitching too!

Just a normal, average day for us. I love normal. I want them to remember the good ol' normal days. If you still remember, Neha was sick last month? She was home for 11 days and oh how I long for her to be healthy and back in school. That was when I did this layout.

Bits of patterned paper, some zig zag punch action, stitching, misting and stickers. Lovin' it!

Papi Love

Papi as in Daddy. Yes, too much Dora, and I want to record that. Who knows, one day she may stop calling him Papi and revert back to Daddy? :) Who knows?

The CPU is still driving me crazy, so I better stop doing whatever I'm doing on the puter and go to bed. Tomorrow, I'll be busy hopping from one blog to another to leave all of you some love. I love days like that.

*love*

When I saw the word "Papi" I was totally giddy thinking "you are saying it the same way we do in Germany!!!" Oh well, it was a nice thought....LOL

I totally love that story behind the phone image - that sounds like something I would do - call my mum to the the skinny on what I did way back when... he he he
BUT you could still pass for 27 anyway!
