in retrospect

now that the year is wrapping up, can't help but took a walk through the months that had past. this year has been a year of growth as i learned to accept the meaning of what it means to be not in control of our lives. We plan our steps but the Higher Divine Almighty One steers our path, we believe.Past year hasn't been a healthy year. We'd been surrounded by many who are inflicted with illnesses (critical)and our household
are not spared (don't worry it's nothing terminal but something tame-able).
Now it has drawn closer how important our health is to us. it makes me sit back and think of how to adjust our lifestyle and attitude ... and surrender to Him.

'nuff said...hope all you out there are well in every sense :)
been in the mood to use up my ribbons and lace. i've got like endless miles of them.
Most of them inherited from mom. What can u do if ribbons/ lace of the same pattern?
i do get bored with them ... anyhow, i used up some to accessorise my pearls. not that i wear them though !
those awesome colored ribbons are from Pebbles Inc.

One layout using Pebbles Inc

here's another layout using Banana Frog and Rose Moka.
i used dry embossing and glitter around the photo. my Tutorial write up can be found > Here

and Yes, i'm still very much into yellow - Still...

and a sneaky using Graphic 45 and the Bind It All...

and some miscellaneous stuff... i'm trying very hard to use up what i have lying around.

Kids say the cutest thing. Our kid's conversation is sometimes my springboard for my layouts.
