Let's Scrap DT Challange #171 & CSI #90

Here's my take on CSI's case #90 this week, coupled with Let's Scrap DT Challenge. For CSI challenge, my evidences include polka dot, stripes, white space, hearts, something transparent (washi tape) and two different alphabets. I decided to write something fun about Chloe, something different from the layouts that I did in the past about her. Check out my layout at CSI page for more details on the journaling.

I now know that Chloe is a powerful name for a very spirited woman - describes this furkid very well. She'll be remembered as a strong willed pup and of course her nice silky coat :)
I'm also playing along Let's Scrap DT Challenge #171 hosted by Hanne.  This challenge requires at least 3 layers behind the photo and at least one DIY flower, with reference to one of the tutorials on Let's Scrap. I had made a paper posie with Eniko Paper Posies tutorial. I truly enjoy making this layout as I used Halloween papers for this layout, but they don't scream that much Halloween on this layout. :)

Random Layout - Scrap Africa#21 + Skissedilla#225

Here's my take on Scrap Africa challenge#21  - to use washi tape and twine and coupled with Skissedilla sketch #225. I started off with some washi tapes, an old plastic card, had a few rounds of pouring of paint onto the card, turned the cardstock around and watched the paint dripped. Then I picked up drippy paint with plastic card from the base before they soak through and swipe it back onto the cardstock. There you go, I have a background and this is one great experiment how far I could go without stencils! Washi tapes kind of blended in in the background but you could see clearly a small blue tape just behind the cake. :) Last but not least I had I had added some stamping and twine to complete this layout.

Thanks for looking!

Random Layout - CSI #88 & OUAS Sept sketch

Here's my take with CSI #88 palette and  OUAS Sept sketch challenge. I used all colors required in CSI palette. Evidences that I have includes floral pattern, ledger/notebook paper, clock, use pen/pencil, book pages and doodle. My testimony is to write about something you've learned. My title reads Lucky To Have You. Without you I wouldn't have known how to be a parent (well at least for the 1st time). Babies and children don't come with manual, I wish they do. Then I could just read you like a book. More details here at CSI

Random Layout - CSI #87 & Skissedilla sketch#223

Here's my take on CSI case #87 this week with Skissedilla sketch #223. I had used all 5 colors required and my evidences includes map print, transportation accents, mist, word stickers/rub-ons and butterflies. My testimony is based on these 2 criteria - Spread your journaling so it wanders around your page and Inspiration words: wander, lost, direction. I had created a messy page for this with the title OK TO MESS UP. Simply because last year, my (then) 5years old was drawing butterflies to be pasted on clipboard for Teacher's Day gift. Well, we did a few clipboards. Before he started he said he wanted to draw one big butterfly. So then he proceeded on to draw a few butterflies and made them colorful. And he added what he said to be dragonflies too onto his drawing. I let him wonder and decide the choices of colors on the blend. My journaling reads, "Hey, I'm a newbie! I want to draw a butterfly, no, it would be many butterflies and make them big! Let's make it colorful, the the colors and make them pretty! There has to be dragonflies too and colorful. It's ok to be crooked"

Let's Scrap DT Challenge 170

It's Sept and it's a new term at Let's Scrap. This week, Ada is hosting the DT challenge #170 at Let's Scrap and I'm playing along. The challenge is "Chipboard Frenzie" using a sketch and chipboard (perhaps tonnes of them)! I did my background by misting all over with stencils and toned the dark colors down with gesso as I used gesso as the glue for my chipboard. I had done plenty of stamping with my favorite stamps around the page after gesso is dried. Can you see the chipboards and how many have I used?

Weekend crafts

With the help of my kids over the weekend, we did use some of my washi tapes. I let them chose the designs that they wanted and of course they were very excited after seeing the MT Kids Limited Edition tapes. We created Teachers' Day postcard style Thank You cards. For each cards, #1 chose the tapes he wanted and I tore/cut for him. #2 wanted almost everything aligned, so I had to cut, aligned and pasted the tapes for him. The messages as seen below were writting by #1. Oh well, spelling mistakes here and there but it's ok. :)

Let's Scrap 9-4-13

I did this for Let's Scrap DT Call - and yup I'm in for my 4th term! It's been a YEAR! Back to the layout - I safe kept #1's writing assignment during free time in school. He brought home what he wrote about a Saturday at Ikea. At that time we were shopping for a study desk for him (in the end we decided that we should just renovate the kids room instead!). He had lots of fun with #2 running and prancing around Ikea since it's a kids friendly place. The items I had used for this layout are all from October Afternoon (ranging from Farm Girl, Report Girl and Sidewalks)

Thanks for looking!
