Let's Scrap DT Challange #172

This week, I'm hosting a DT challenge #172 over at Let's Scrap. These are the basic requirements of the challenge:
  • Use Let's Scrap sketch and only a layout is allowed in this challenge
  • Theme - Flowers/Plants/Tree overload - you may use in the form of stamping, background, pattern paper, DIY flowers, Die cuts, washi tapes, chipboard
What I did here was lots of inky work to create the background. I have here flowers, leaves, grass and trees. There were ink blending and in case you are wondering, ,I didn't purchase that many of the Rangers ink blending tool sponges (I had 2 tool and about 5 of those high end sponges, and I kind of lose steam using them for a year a already). So I had stash on cheap cosmetic sponges which I cut and used thriftily for my craft & dispose! I started off stamping maple leaves onto the beautiful stencil which was a RAK, sent to me fellow scrapper friend, Eniko. First ink used on this page was Pumice Stone then Tea Dye. Then I blended in Victorian Velvet and Spiced Marmalade with that cheap cosmetic sponges. I followed through with stamping of the grass and the tree line - yes, upside down. They do look like branches, don't they?! The challenge is open for 2weeks so do hop by Let's Scrap and join us for other weekly sketches and challenges and inspirations - all the fun of scrapping!

Random Layout - CSI #91

Here's my take for CSI case #91. Evidences include birds, leaves, wet medium, stripes, and tearing. My testimony is based on  inspiration words: surprise, need, enjoy and also journal about something you enjoy every day. 

My layout is a very simple daily need (well at least for me!) - Breakie. I used the quote from Ali Edwards Technique Tuesday collections, reason being  Breakfast is the 1st meal of the day and important to me. Weekend breakfast at home is usually the time where I typically try out new food with my kids. This photo as shown is actually at the request of my eldest son. It was taken during one of our weekend breakfast at home. He is pretty 'creative' in his request at the breakfast. Anyway, on one particular morning, we had wanted to just spread jam or peanut butter for him. And he did know that there was avocado already soft from the outside and need to be eaten that very day. So he asked us to toast his bread, then spare the jam and peanut butter. To my surprise, he asked me to spread avocado onto his bread. True enough when I cut the avocado into half, it was already very ripe. So I dug up the centre and applied the mushy avocado onto his bread. That's it. He truly enjoyed this breakfast. I took a photo of it because I thought it was a moment for me, since I had never ever ate avocado as a bread spread before and I have never heard of anyone that I know of doing that; at least I know my son does!
I feel that the quotes from Ali Edwards does jive with what I had recorded here. The photo though is not perfect but it's the moment and recording what we went through in one of our days.

Let's Scrap 10-2-13

Here's my take on this week's Let's Scrap sketch with a year old photos taken during Penang buffet lunch at York Hotel. Oh yea, it is so darn expensive indeed, well, apparently cooks were imported from Penang! For kid #1, he tried & loved most of the food except for the spicy ones. It was the 1st experience for #2 and he enjoyed the Kway Teow Thng very much. For us, we loved practically everything and had multiple servings of everything - they do come in small servings. These food are in abundance back in Penang but the standard here in Singapore can't match up what we have back home! Anyway, food at the buffet was pretty authentic!

Thanks for looking!
