New look and a lot more....

Hello Everyone!!! So nice to be back! Notice the new look on my blog? O well, haven't finished everything yet... still have a lot of updating to do with the links, the blinkies etc.... But having this new face will definitely help me blog again.

Been quite busy with so much stuff like adjusting and doing household chores (yah right.) There were times that it was difficult for me to scrap and blog at night due to some health reasons but I'm trying my best to get my life sorted out and do the things I normally do before I moved here. Hopefully, this is the start of it again.
I'm still scrapping - that is something difficult to give up. Actually, I'm also trying my hand in Cardmaking too!!! But during the past weeks, I was so lazy to upload pictures from my camera and blog about it. Hopefully, having this fresh look will put an end to my laziness.

So lets get on to it....
Scrappy side.... I have lots to share... ( i know i have been telling you this in my last posts... but since I was so lazy, I need to catch up on it)

Guess what?! One of my layouts got accepted in the current issue of Scrapbooking Memories Vol. 12 Number 8. Unfortunately, I can't reveal the whole layout yet... but here is a sneak...
and here is a sneak peek of my layout on page 110.Hope you guys will grab a copy of the magazine!!! I promise, the content is all worth it!!! So much inspiration in it.


Then as promised, will be sharing my layouts... (feels so good to be able to do this again...)
This is a layout which I made for Webster's Pages August Challenge. I miss joining challenges... They really help you jumpstart my scrapping again.
The August challenge was... to scraplift one of the Dt layouts there... I have chosen to scraplift the gorgeous layout by Karola. And here is my take....
Close-ups.....
Title: Simple Joy
Materials Used: Webster's Pages Papers - Life's protrait; Prima Flowers; Ac thickers and MME Alphas






And as you have read, I'm trying my hand in cardmaking too after deciding to take the plunge to the world of Copic Pens... I really enjoy coloring.... makes me feel stress free.
Here are 3 new cards I have made....
I have used Basic Grey Olivia papers, The Greeting Farm Stamps, and Copic Markers to create these cards. Hope you like it!!!

There you have it.... im so happy to finally post!!! More to come these coming days!!!
Thanks for visiting!

hugs!
Cookie

Hi Cookie! Congrats on the publication. Galing! So proud of you!

Love the layout! It's amazing how you used all those flowers plus the soft colors on a boy layout! And the title - genius. I have to copy that.

Great coloring work, too! It looks as if you've been using Copics for years. You are so versatile.

Can't wait to see more of your work. And take care of yourself, ok?
