Hi!


was playing around taking random shots of kids around the house and got this accidental shot of myself :D reflection from our cupboard filled with Ron's porcelain collection ;)

through this wonderful world of Scrapbooking and blogging, i've made friends that i enjoy having little chats with thru emails and leaving little notes @ each other's comment boxes :)

Tania
celebrated her birthday and i made her a frybox with a simple card. so glad you received them and hope you and your Beautiful children enjoy the little things i sent.



Fun Time
haven't been really busy with scrapbooking but busy playing with kids mostly and while Aysha, Muesa and i play Monopoly the NY version(Thanks to Cousin Stef & Zaly!), Little Ones would play games on cable TV. the thing about monopoly, it's fun and exciting buying properties and having lots of money but... after an hour or so, i try to wiggle out and Thankfully my kids agree that we could end the game :D

i managed to get these pages done during the afternoons while it's quiet @ home with little interruption ;)

Henna Art
the flocked paper from Chatterbox seems just right with these photos ;)
i doodled the exact henna design i did for Aneesa using a puffy velvet fabric marker. it would actually puff up if embossed but i left it as it is...


Adore
when proud new Dad R showed me photos of his newborn son, i asked if i could have the photos and did this layout for him. left some space for him in the circle tag to fill up Baby's date of birth. R has no idea what scrapbooking is and it sounded so foreign to him! hehe... hope he'll like this :)

Yes I Can!
for Sketches! Recipe challenge to use paint, squares and a punctuation mark.
Thanks Yannie for the photos :)



exams are finally over and older kids brought home their Report Books. Aysha did excellently well, so Proud of her! Top Student for Y2008 in her class and 2nd in her whole level. Muesa did quite alright for himself. he has his weakness in Math especially but he has improved since getting extra lessons from his Teacher. so Thankful for a Teacher's patience and i *heart* what she said about how Muesa Inspires harmony among his peers in class :)

Ron called and he's doing pretty alright in Bhutan. he's eating veggies everyday..hehe. that should be good for him! nothing much to do during his free time and how much gardening can a Gardener do in a day? hehehe...

his Surprise for me is here, i'm ready and i can't wait! ;)

have a Wonderful Time wherever you may be and Thanks for coming over here :D Take care! *Hugs*

I was wondering what you would do with the Henna tattoo pictures and see a beautiful layout. The Bob the Builder page is so adorable. Have a fun week.

Adore your layouts edleen - admire the fact that you can churn out different layouts each time, while I seem to stick to one particular style which even bores me sometimes. :) Thanks so much for your lovely compliments on my sewing, and I'm tell you from the heart - if I can sew, so can you, so can your kids for that matter coz I was previously clueless about sewing! Reading good books help a lot. :) And yes, I was at vivo that afternoon but I didn't see you!! Was there on a mission to get some items from Daiso and with limited time, so I'm sorry I missed you. Take care!
