Another great news is that I became an AUNT. Yay!!

Yes, my brother and SIL had a cute little baby girl on Saturday.

I desperately want to go and see the baby but I cannot go until December!!

I could hear her cry over the phone though. So cute.

Anyway, I went shopping for baby stuff today. Oh!!! so cute, tiny pants, tops and cardi.

Very Very cute Aawwwwwwwwww

I am so happy.Yay!!!

This was so funny…………..

Tinky is our neighbour’s pet.
We babysit her whenever our neighbour goes out or during the weekend.
She loves my son and they share a special chemistry.lol!!!
He was reading Simpson’s magazine and Tinky too sat with him in his hand read the mag!!!! Whenever my son laughs, she mimics him.
It was sooooooooo funny.
We all burst into laughter. Tinky joined us too.
Thought will share it with you.
Here is a picture

Until next time…..



10 Quick cards…….

Hey everybody,

Its Saturday here and daylight saving time closes tonight.
Will be behind by an hour from tomorrow.
Weird, I should say. Daylight saving is not needed here in WA!!!
In spite of public voting against it three times. We still have daylight saving!!!
Anyway, it all political I guess!!!

I spent my afternoon today making these cards.
These are simple ones made using White card stock, Cuttle bug embossing folder, Some embellishments from Basic Grey, Prima and Pink Paislee and matching Versa Color ink.
I adore them. Love the white background.
The colors really pop out don’t they?

I have to make the envelopes for them and they are all done.


I also managed to do some gardening. Went to Bunnings and got some plants.
Worked on the soil. Tomorrow is planting them. Its not a veggie garden.
One corner of my backyard was bare and needed some good plants and it will become cosy then!
My body aches.

Got to sleep.

Good night


Magnolia Down Under Challenge #4

This week magnolia Down Under challenge is all BLING.
Yay!! I love bling.
Most of my layouts have bling in them heheh!!

Anyway, this is my take on the challenge.

Tilda sitting on the chair.
Chair is completely blocked I think!! Can you see it?
In fact, I have cut Tilda out and mounted her on the chair.
There are two black bling as Tilda’s overall buttons.
Also tiny bling flowers around Tilda.
The Shimmer copper color card and envelope is from Kaiser Craft.
The flower paper is from Rosa Moka.
Green and baby pink cardstock.
Fiber from my stash. Alphas from Pink Paislee.

Loved making the card. Thanks for the challenge.

And this layout I made for Angie’s sketch challenge for this month at her blog.

It is a digital layout. paper and elements from various kits all freebies.
Many thanks to all the freebie kits ladies you are posting.


What a day today!!! So far I have been shopping.
Nothing exciting. Just the grocery shopping.
Siddarth is unwell and is at home.
Poor thing is down with fever and body aches.
I am still dragging him along for shopping.
Of course, he is taking his medication.

In one of the shopping centers, there was a photo shoot for kids.
I took one for Siddarth. His face all red with fever!!
Will get to see them next month. No obligation to buy!!!
Atleast that what they say!
Only if it nice I will get them. Lets see how it goes mmmmm!!!!

Finally, I have framed my SIL’s layout I made very long time ago.
Will show you this evening. Finding a 12 x 12 frame is so difficult here in my town!!!
I am still not satisfied with the frame. Its so plain. Would like a ornate frame!!!

Alright then until next time

Basic Grey Challenge #27

Hey Everybody,

This week’s Basic Grey Challenge #27 is all about Texture.
Of course, there should be some Basic Grey product used in the creations.

This is my take on the challenge:

I have used corrugated cardboard and lace for the texture.
The layered flowers and leaves are from Basic Grey Marrakech card stock element stickers.
I have layered the flowers using double sided foam for the 3D effect.
The background paper is from K & Co Blue Awning paper pack.
Brads and the blue pearl from Kaiser Craft.
And the sentiment piece of paper is also from kaiser Craft Peek a Boo paper range.

Thanks for the challenge.
Plenty of idea bulbs are glowing all around my head.
May make another card as well!!

Until next time



Surprise!!! Surprise!!!

Hey everybody,

I got a surprise today! I won the Basic Grey Challenge #26. Yay!!!
What a sweet surprise.
My DH and kids gave me Hi-Fis.
Doing a little dance right now!! lol!!
You made my day, Martine. Many thanks.


Today I made a layout for one of our Challenge Chics who recently delivered a cute baby girl.
We had planned in our forum at Debscreations that we will each make a baby layout and send it as an album to her.

Here is mine.

I also made a card for her.

I haven’t used pastel shades in ages.
My kids have grown now and I haven’t made baby layouts at all!!!
They look so beautiful and baby like. Awww cute!!!
They are the Peek a boo papers from Kaiser Craft. Really loved making them.
Thought I will share these with you all.
Got to go for dinner.

Yay!! My cards are getting published

I was checking my email and to my surprise, I had this email reply from Austraian Cardmaking, stamping and papercraft magazine wanting to publish 2 of my cards in their reader’s gallery.
I forgot that iIhad sent some of my cards to them!!
The cards are here in my blog for today. I will remove them tomorrow first thing.
The cards are “Hi” and ” Best friend”
That made my day!! I am doing a little dancing at the moment.Lol!!!
I am applying for the Kaisercraft DT position. I am not sure I will get it.
If I get it. I will resign my current part time job.
Seriously!!! I am just waiting for a chance to resign.
I would rather do something I love to do, which is of course scrapbooking.
Anyway, I finished my single and double layouts. Half finished my OTP.
So by tomorrow I should be done. Not bad hun!!
Infact I was not sure if I will apply or not this Monday.
I went to see if my LSS had the papers and embellishments I wanted.
Not really. She had the new ones but I like some of kaiser’s old papers. She did not have them.
So I ordered online from Anna’s Craft Cupboard and ta…da… the parcel came the very next day. I am very impressed. It came from Perth of course.
Still!!!! That was very prompt. Thanks Anna.
But many of my parcels takes 2 weeks to reach from the east coast!!!
Since I got my products, I decided I will give the DT call a go.
Will show you all the layouts and OTP after the announcement by mid April.
Another exciting news is that my kit from Scrapncraft with T is arriving soon. I am guest designing for Tanyah next month. My January kit was her best seller.
So I am all excited to work on this kit.
Also kits from Debs creations are also posted to me.
I have no idea what the kit is going to be!!! Will be a surprise when I get them.
Yay!! can’t wait to see them and work on them.
I do not have anything to show today. But I am also working on a layout which does not have photo of person{s}. Shh!!!! Will show tomorrow. Lol!!!
Bye for now
