missing in action ....

i pretty much neglected my blogland for the past few weeks.
lots to catch up - we were in the festive mood celebrating the Lunar New Year.
it was hectic.

Technically, the Chinese celebrate LNY for 15 days (it's only the 3rd today). but folks are back to work and kids back to school.... read here if u'll like some in brief description =). GONXI FA CAi to all who are celebrating !

on the creative front, finished up a few projects here for my local store.
Made With Love, using Sizzix die cut...

and using FarFlung Craft (using the Chinese New Year collection)...


My zutter's projects are long over due on my blog .... catch more monthly creative ideas from Zutter's on their gallery...
for this month's, i tried to incorporate home improvement tips into my projects as well (See, LYN means spring cleaning in every possible way ... )

1. this is a board-game album (12x12) . used paper board games, mounted onto cardstock and used the Bind it all . those flimsy paper board games get tamed, easy to find and ready to leave the house on road trips.

2. another method to tame those flying flash cards. can't stand it when one goes missing.... trouble no more! the bind it all saves my sanity =)

3.Vacation Trip storage folder (Cover all) . it says it all - stores everything u wish to keep after your getaway ...
4. A cover all with a slot in note book (self made) using the bind it all ...
on a last note, Please keep a look out for Memory Maker's Magazine (July/Aug'09) if you would =) you might just spy 2 of my layouts there .... !

that's it... i still have some more which i need to upload ... shall save for another time. thanks for dropping by and leaving your love ! have a blessed week !! =)

ps: hop down to YSS if u want some part of CHA goodies !
