The merriest of Christmas

I hope you have. :)
  • I'm back with one little layout.
  • Not feeling chatty today, good thing it's only Nidhi and I at home - today is probably the day, that if a stranger said " I like your perfume, what is it?" I would reply with "I sprinkle gun powder on myself. Watch your step, I might explode" Ha!
  • But no, that didn't happen. Because on days like this, I usually stay home cook a huge pot of chicken and potato soup and stay home being cranky.
a lifetime ago

  • Used up some older metal embelishments - heart brads, eyelet metal sentiment, metal word plate, acetate tag, all from Making Memories. The alphas are from Heidi Swapp - misted.
  • I love that instax photo. That was Neha, now 11yrs old - very much a young lady. Yup, I've had Instax since before I got pregnant with Nidhi. Nidhi is now 9+. LOL. I must dig up and see if that thing still works.
  • Polka dotted leaves were cut from a Dear Lizzy fabric paper. I left the backing intact because I don't want them to stick flat on the page. Added some pop dots to help elevation.
  • And some photos. . I've decided not to post the rest of my Project 365 here, but will continue uploading it to my Flickr 365/2011 set. Please hop on over if you'd like to view them all.

  • Do yourself a favor and bake these nutella cupcakes. They're divine. Trust me. You're welcome. My biggest problem is that I tend to inhale them. Not good. Not good.
  • and a current favorite photo of Nidhi and I - taken on the way to a wedding at Botanical Garden here in Singapore.
  • and another one, because I can't resist ogres. He's so handsome! *grins*
  • You know what? I think my crankiness is gone! Heeeheee!! Off to play and hope I will be back here soon, eh? :)

Awww, I love your blog, Sasha. It's all kinds of happiness here... even when you're supposedly cranky. ;-)

LOVE that layout! It's gorgeous! I miss scrapping SO much! Can you believe I've scrapped like three layouts in the last YEAR? GAH! That's craziness, I tell you! Flew by. Seriously.

Anywho, I'm getting photos printed today... WOO! So hopefully, I'll be scrapping soon. And I'll be back on your blog for inspiration! ;-) Love you much!

I love what you did with the grid stamping and the details here- the fabric paper is a GREAT tip- I LOVE the grey felt with pearls around it- I always appreciate how you manage to pack the page with innovative details- it's great food for thought. ;) Hugs to you- I'm Miss Cranky pants as well- my Mom just told me I had to "chill"- which made me laugh.

Diana said...

I love the LO. One day I would love you show a pullback (or pullbacks) of how you mist. You seem to do it so perfectly.
Sad you're not sharing 365 here anymore but I'll head over to Twitter.
You've inspired me to consider a 365 project for 2012!

I recently pulled out some old, old, old photos of my babygirl when she actually was a baby. My. That's like, a lifetime ago! :) Love the layout and the peeks from your life, and yes miss I will make the nutella cupcakes. Soon!

Your one little layout is fabulous! I hope your day got tons better and that you and your family had a fabulous holiday! Thank you so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog, coming from you that is a major compliment! :)

Claire T said...

I love your layout and the picture of you and your little miss at the wedding is gorgeous! I hope you had a lovely day off. I am starting to look forward to heading back to the Little Red Dot. The thought of the Botanic Gardens made me homesick!
