Dear Tania, sorry it took this long for me to let you know what happened to the package you sent me for my birthday in November last year. it only arrived months later and the real reason for the late arrival was because it was Missent to Malaysia!

but i'm so glad it finally found it's destination and i am totally in Love with every bit and pieces you put in this package :) my kids love the stickers & socks, i Love the chocolates! hehe... and the Beautiful card you made. and the journal notebook, it's so pretty i can't bear to use it!

i really want to document this story and have used almost everything that Tania wrapped in the box from the orange wrap, original brown paper wrap, corrugated board from the box, the pretty pink frilly ribbon and the love
ly Birthday card :)
check it out, Missent to Malaysia! hehe...
Her New Crop Bag
she's the modern Groovie Girl who loves
creating her own stuff and she made her own
Groovie Crop Bag! h
*although she needs a new hairdo!*
it's actually a simple altered Matchbox ;)
did this while cropping @ Georgina's today along with Shirley
who brought the most sinful Cheesecake Brownie!
she loves her papers just like most of us! ;)
okie doke, hope you enjoyed what you read today :D wisdom tooth is out, so i'm less wise or getting wiser? hehe... my gum has healed completely Thank Goodness! it's been a good day and @ the same time, not so good because our fridge decided to take a rest today after 13 years of wonderful cool service to our family ;)

Thankfully this happened while Ron is still home! he flies off this evening to the wonderful Maldives... ahhhh. the local expression would be, "So Shiok!" hehehe... but poor hubby is having a bad cough and maybe the air there would help him recover quickly. i hope :)


i'll be @ the event and hope to see some of you there! it'll be a whole day of fun and i'm excited to meet the Scrapbook Celebrities :D

Enjoy your weekend and stay Happy!
