the lunar new year L ...o....n....g weekend was GREAT but i was so looking forward to my routine. i just crave for my-everyday.
and i am really glad to return to my paper and glue.

so, i've been plauged by a very popular question.
When will be sending our little boy ( now coming to three...) to the nursery.
Most often than not, i just shrug cause i'm not sure.
Truth is he is not ready.
Or rather I AM NoT ready...
At All.
it's a good thing the government did not enforce preschool (nursery) program..
seriously, i mean don't you think 3 is still a little to young ?
but of course i listen with politeness to kind advices thank you very much. mama knows best.

so i abstained from my pretty paper and glue for a few days.
it's great meeting them again ! :)

just before the chinese new year hols, i dished this for my local store.
We were given mediums to work with and using mist, crackle paint, a simple white cardstock had its makeover ...
i went to town with bottles of mist,paint and embossing powder. This was the look before i slapped on the photo.





a layout i created for no reason using webster pages.


another using Pebbles Inc. i was the host this week at the pebbles inc blog...
i challenged our team mates to show us their individual style and here is mine.
i (would like to)think i am quite an ephemeral girl at heart...Ha!
i just love to mix the old (script) and new together ...whether it is acid free doesn't concern me so much... thanks , J for the photos!


lastly, i'm also one of the host for NikkiSivil's blog this week...
here's one of my contribution using the new Flaming Butterfly Collection...
Look out for a NikkiSivil's giveaway Here some time next week !



wow, i think this is a long post! thanks for popping in and staying a little longer !
I shall leave you with a sneak.
You haven't hear much about A Kiss on the Chic's kit, haven't you ?
Laura will be having her kits again come March !
take a peek; remember this is Only part of this kit :



Wish it is March already isn't it :) !
Have a blessed week, all you beautiful people...

aussiescrapper said...

Again and as usual your layouts are truly magnificent, wow what an awesome kit too. Love that gorgeous butterfuly.

I get lots of advice about sending Nate (just 3 yrs) to daycare, I decided that I will stay at home with him until he goes to school, lots of people will say, he will be better socialised, learn more etc but I am his mum, and this time will go oh too quickly before I do not have him during the days. Do what you think - your little man would probably be soo happy to have his mum with him for as long as possible. Love to you dear girl. Love Melxxx
