Bragging time today:)

G’ Morning! It is Mad Monday today. After a very long day at Music Awards yesterday, I am still exhausted. Kids off to school and hubby to work. Cooking lunch at the moment. So I thought I will share some photos from Music Awards yesterday. Ready for a photo heavy post?

ย 

Siddarth got his trophy for Under18 Fretted Strings and Aditi received hers for Under 11 Piano. Aditi also came second in her singing. Both very happy. I love when they told me that it was their everyday practices that got them where they are right now. Proud parent moment:)
Normally I don’t post personal photos on my blog. But these ones are special. So Thanks for sharing my excitment:)
See you soon!

Readers’ Choice!

Well, did you see this? Papercraft magazine has for the first time asked to select two cards out of 10 by the readers for publishing in their Jan/Feb issue under Valentines for Guys. How cool is that? So I went to see all the cards. And to my surprise (sweet of course lol!) my card is one among the 10. Wow!
So here is the link if you wish to vote.

I am out of town and don’t have a good internet connection. It is frustrating to have the internet go off and on at its own will! And I never thought I am so dependent on it too ๐Ÿ˜ฆ So all my posts have to wait until Tuesday. This post took me like 10 minutes to type and more than half an hour to publish it!!!!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
Ta!

Some Birthday Invitations :)

I made some birthday invitations for my friend’s son’s birthday party using the sample invite made for the blog hop here. It became popular that I am asked to make a girl version of it using butterfly for a little girl’s birthday party.
So here is what I came up with.
Girl birthday invites
Girl birthday invites
Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampers Select White from PTI, Tempting Turquoise from SU
Stamps: Party Elements Critters from Clean ans Simple stamps. Father Knows Best from PTI
Inks: Pixie Pink from SU and Stazon black ink
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder from SU, brayer, cuttlebug, Beautiful Butterflies dies from PTI and rhinestones from Kaisercraft.
She liked it so much especially the butterflies and the rhinestones on it. This card fits into a normal envelope. I adhered a butterfly on the envelope to coordinate the invites.

Lily Pad Cards, Misc.

Gilded Lily Award

I am going to brag today because I am given the rights to unlimited bragging (giggle). I saw a few comments congratulating me on my win at Lily Pads Blog. So I went over to the blog and scrolled down. I saw my card and I don’t know what came upon me that I closed the page. I think I didn’t expect it as a winner and also it has been sometime since I made this card. After a few minutes, I went back to the blog and re read it again. I am honoured and humbled that this card of mine is picked as a winner ๐Ÿ™‚ย 
Thank you so much.
Thank You card
I also get a $25 gift certificate fro Purple Onions Designs. This will be my first buy from them. I have seen a few fantastic projects made using their stamps. Very excited. Cannot wait to choose some of their stamps ๐Ÿ™‚
I did promise to blog about my opinion on The Hunger Games Movie today. It has been a busy and long day. I am hoping after dinner I will get sometime with my laptop to blog. So hopefully another blog post coming soon ๐Ÿ™‚
See you soon!

I hope I have not missed anybody. I went through my list but if I have missed anybody, please remind me and I will definitely add your name to the list.
The idea of the Liebster Blog Award is to spread the love from one small blog (under 200 followers) to other small blogs. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.

1) Link back to the person who gave it and thank them for thinking of you.
2) Post the award to your blog.
3) Give the award to 5 bloggers (with less than 200 followers) that you appreciate and value.
4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the five people you have chosen to let them know.

ย It is hard choosing just 5, isn’t it?
ย Nevertheless, here are my chosen 5
1. Deb
2. Euna
