Scraplift Challenge at MWL!

I've the privilege of hosting the last challenge of 2011 over at Made With Love's forum!

It's a Scraplift Challenge, and I've scraplifted one of Basic Grey's designers, Yuhko Takiguchi's layouts here. She has a beautiful simple style, do check out her projects on her blog!

This is my take on her layout:

So Singapore scrappers, come join in the fun and upload your layouts for the challenge!

Polaroid Love

I love the weekly gatherings at my in-laws' place where all the cousins come together. Our kids have a great relationship and I'm so thankful for wonderful parents-in-law and sisters-in-law. They are easy-going, fun, and extremely supportive and encouraging. 

Using mostly supplies from October Afternoon's 5&Dime and Boarding Pass collections with bits of Cherry Hill stickers. Title alphas from American Crafts. Sizzix diecuts:  Tim Holtz Alterations Sewing Room die (#657186)

Clearing the backlog....

In a blink of an eye, it's been three months since I've updated this blog! If you've just popped by, do know you're much appreciated! *hugs*

The last few months have been revolving around work, ministry and the children. In between, here're some scrapping projects I did:

A layout using October Afternoon papers and embellishments. Don't you love those rosettes! They were made with the Sizzix Mini Paper Rosettes Sizzlit Decorative Strip (#657177)

7Gypsies altered tray to be hung at my husband's new office. Using lots of Maya Road and Crate Paper goodies plus Prima flowers.

Challenge Layout for my LSS Made With Love. The challenge was to use bits and pieces from at least 6 manufacturer brands, and to have the word "HAPPY" in the title. Fabulous layouts came in for this one!

Will be working furiously on a wedding project this month... stay tuned and have a great month!

Happy 1st Birthday

Last month, I told a girlfriend that I'll make a signage for her girl's 1st birthday. I got so much into it that the project expanded to include a guestbook and a banner. Here they are, all taken with Instagram (my favourite Iphone app of the moment), except for the banner. I've never been so inspired! Lol.

Weekend Musings...

It's been a rough day but I still want to be thankful for a beautiful boy who loves, laughs, and lives in his own special way.

Have a great weekend!

Made With Love opens in Jakarta!

Have you seen this awesome piece of news?

Yes! Made With Love is opening a 2nd store in Jakarta. So proud of them! I still remember its start as a small shop at the corner of Plaza Singapura and now it has two large units PLUS a new one overseas.

Check out the 3 amazing instructors - Irene Tan, Lia Abdullah and Emeline Seet -  that will be flying in to conduct workshops during the store's grand opening! These girls are some of the best talents around in the scrapbooking industry so you won't want to miss their classes.

Baby Love Mini Album Class

It's official. I'm teaching a class at Made With Love!

Here are some sneaks of the Baby Love mini album class I'll be teaching on 17 and 29 May. It's full of fun, cheery colours and will make a great memento recording the first year of a baby boy or girl. It's pitched at beginners so you'll learn techniques on how to custom make your own embellishments and maximise your papers... not to mention, play with Sizzix dies too!

You can check out more details in the store's newsletter or email me at littlehappyideas@gmail.com if you've any questions. Look forward to seeing you!

Reliving UK...

Whenever I look at our family travel photos, I feel extremely blessed. We've been on two trips to Europe with the children and they have rarely kicked up a fuss on the plane. The moment they go onboard (all red-eye flights), they would happily arrange themselves in the seats, all eager for the supper and cartoon treats. Finally, they would succumb to fatigue and fall into deep sleep, all the way, stretched out across our laps. Needless to say, they were the only ones among the four of us who wake up fresh and rejuvenated :)

On our last trip to UK, my boy actually got homesick the first few days so I really struggled with his moodiness. Plus we were travelling with friends so I was stressed out trying to manage him. At one point, I almost wished I was home. Fortunately, our friends were very patient and accommodative and just worked around his tantrums, using reverse psychology to get him upbeat again. Now when I look at the photos, especially the ones in which he is grinning or laughing, I've almost forgotten how upset I was and just glad that we brought them along.

I've started on an album of the holiday photos - a mixture of 12x12 layouts and 4x6 mini ones. I used mostly NoelMignon's "Delightfully Domestic" March kit and some of my own stash.

And talking about UK, my boy just asked if we can go England again during the June school holidays.

Guess he did enjoy it after all :)

And that's all that matters.
