Welcome to Shania Daniela Narcis!

Everyone....an announcement........my clever sister popped out a baby girl last Friday. Meet Shania Daniela Narcis born in Brunei at 11.15am on the 27th October weighing 3280gms (majority of that weight must be in her chubby cheeks). She is absolutely perfect and we can't wait to meet her! Must buy a lotto ticket this weekend.

Ok...it has been a while since I blogged......there truly wasn't much to blog about....lol. I got my layout done in time to mail off to Scrapbook creations for their cover comp. I won't win so am posting it on my blog for all to see. I do like it though...but it's not cover material....why? Coz someone who has a cute kid layout will win the comp....I'm not cute....my son said so....my layout does not scream buy me buy me buy me. LOL...but that's ok....I tried and that's good enough for me. Jannah if you are reading my blog....you are most welcome to prove me wrong....rofl!!

Ok....other layouts done are my EDM layouts for October....sigh....truly mojo ran for the hills....this months theme is Home and sponsor is Michael Miller....who make fabric paper. Secondary sponsor is Basic Grey and coz the fabric papers were pale pink, bright pink and bright orange....Romani just really suited. I think I may be in quite a linear kind of mood ....tee hee!

Asides from that....other highlights....

Dylan Hartung Fundraising Crop Day was a huge success as the organiser Jody raised more than $10K that day!!!! Fabulous effort!!! We got to meet Dylan's Dad Tim and hear him talk about Dylan.....I had quite a few teary moments.....for Dylan & his family....and will pray for his recovery. Jodie and Danni from Arty Pants were there demonstrating the Cricut too ....fabulous machine!!

I had an absolute ball that day!!! Never been to a crop before....truly never.....and my scrapping tote has been initiated....it was packed and it has travelled! Did I scrap that day??? Nope....didn't even finish a layout because I had a splitting headache....so I couldn't concentrate on scrapping....I could shop though...funny eh?? I had a good time catching up with friends...and meeting online friends for the first time and making new friends. I donated my Scrapbook Creations prize ($200 worth of Derivan Matisse Kindy Glitz & Paint Minis) to the event for the fundraiser as I won the same prize a while back - there's only so much kindy glitz a gal can use! Wendy from Paperdoll bought it and a new friend was made that day.

Then, last Saturday was Paperific.....I had so much fun shopping!!!! Shopped till I had no more money left with Mich and Shirley. I bought Twinkling H2Os....never used them before and I was assured that $2.50 for a small pot was great value....got 4 to try. Bought stickers to make cards because there was one clever lady who made awesome cards with silver stickers. Bought more collections chipboard....I can't get enough of collections stuff!!! And.....I made ATC cards for the first time the night before paperific. I made 9 thinking that I could trade....thinking that I would be the only one without ATC cards....lol....don't laugh....within 2 mins of walking in...a lady wanted to swap and then...that was it...no one else asked and I didn't see anyone else with ATCs....so now I have 8 left....what do I do with left over ATCs??? Anyone want to swap???? Please don't laugh at my ATCs....I've never made them before....they're sooo amateurish! Thought I'd post a pic of the ATCs....although I've used different papers.....they've all got the same theme though....funny scrapbooking sayings. The one on the lower right hand corner has gone....it said...Born to Scrap, Forced to work.

Welcome to the world gorgeous Shania! Ruey, your layouts are STUNNING - I think you would make a GREAT cover girl - hmmm, maybe I'm thinking of another mag lol!!!!

Wendy said...

Hi Ruey,
It was so cool to meet you at the Dylan Day. I have been stalking your blog for the last few weeks.
I love your Cover LO. I sent in a page with my 14YO DD and am sure I won't win either. I actually said the same thing as you, that they usually feature a gorgeous young child. Not that my DD isn't gorgeous, but you know I always say the older they get the cuter they aint! LOL!
Anyway TFS, and I love your ATC's too.
