After 44 days..... long post.

Just want to let everybody know that I'm still here!!!  It feels awful not to be able to update my blog for the longest time.  There were many times that I've attempted but I also don't know why I ended up on just uploading the picture files on my laptop - and thats it!  It never made it to a post on my blog.  Laziness beats me on this - which makes me feel bad.  Of course, there is Facebook and Kdrama which I also do in my spare time (kinda addicted to it).  I still scrap and even make cards.  In fact, I have plenty to share.  I just need to get the rhythm of blogging again.  I will really try harder this time....because it also makes me happy to be able to share my work.

Layouts?  I have lots to share.... 
I'm doing more doubles!!!  Here is a quick and easy double pager that I taught on one of my sessions at Catchy Crafts
Title: Greenbelt
Materials Used: American Crafts City park papers; Martha Stewart Deep edge puncher, Ek Success Puncher; Fiskars Border puncher - Brackets; AC thickers; Bazzill Kraft Cardstock; Uniball Signo White pen; Cotton String

Oh by the way, Catchy Crafts is moving to a new location.  Still at Hornsby, just beside the old store.  We are all excited about it because it's bigger, more spacious and filled with more scrappy goodness!!! And since it will be our last week in the old addy, the store is having a 25% off on almost everything!!!  The new store will be open to serve on the 27th of April.  Hope to see you all there!

Recently, I've joined the Blue Bazaar Bootcamp.  This time, it requires us to finish 30 layouts based on Pagemaps Sketches by the end of May.  I love joining this as it will really make me put a dent on my ever growing scrap stash.  Right now, I'm on to my 6th layout! - Feels great huh!
Sharing my first few pages....
Here is my take...
Title: School
Materials Used: Pink Paislee Papers; AC Thinkers; Tattered Angels Chipboard; Pink Paislee Transparent Stickers; Glimmer Mist; Bazzill White Cardstock; Dimensional Magic; Yellow Versamark; Cropadile; Maya Road Tickets; Scenic Route Chipboard stickers.

great stuff! You're sounding really upbeat and that's good. There's nothing like doing some creative work to make one feel good, I say.


I look forward to visiting you in the new Catchy Crafts store.
