Do Not Climb!

This layout was done for the Graphic 45 Blog using Amanda Johnston's sketch. Amanda's sketches are very linear so they suit me extremely well.

Even though it was only 2.5 months ago that we were touring Beijing, but it feels as if forever ago. I have tens and thousands of pictures that will never get scrapped, so I have decided to do what I can for the fun of it. The "rest" will likely find their ways into a Snapfish photo book or something.

Here is Second Child in an ancient incense burner at Tian Tan Park, ugh, yeah, I put her in there.

Coming to My Cube

Oh my goodness, I'm excited about this clipboard calendar I made. Finally, I will have a decent calendar in my cube!! I totally and utterly love the Tim Holtz clock mask. As soon as I saw it as the add-on for S.O. kit this month, I knew I had to have it for this very purpose. It's fantastic, really, really fantastic!!

The butterflies are Tim Holtz Grungeboard ones and for that reason, they can be bent easily. I coated one with Pearl paint and then applied glitter glue and then coated it with extremely fine glass. Fabulous result! The smaller butterfly was first distress inked and then I used clear stickle on it and it looks like glass, just as Tim promised.

For the longest time, I struggled with where to print the monthly 2009 calendars. I've searched Microsoft downloadable calendars or many other free ones out on the web. My answer was found at my favorite local crafty store: Michaels! They have millions different cheapo small calendars for sale and I picked one up for $1. Photo corners are used so I can rotate the monthly calendar page.

It's going to be great, it'll definitely cheer my cube up more. My cube is already way more decorated than my house and I will continue that effort. Love my shiney and bright cubicle, sweet cubicle... LOL

Scrapbook Obsessions Jan 2009 Kit

This month, SO is featuring Little Yellow Bicycle. These are not the easiest colors for me since most of my pictures are oozing pink... wonder why, eh? :)

But I managed to create this beauty if I must say so myself . My gosh, the papers look against black! And don't they say black is sliming? But I suppose black and white together isn't :)


There are more to come, but unfortunately by the time I get home, it's dark and I cannot take a decent photo of the layouts any more, so it will have to wait till this weekend!! Until then...

PEACE Banner with Graphic 45

I am utterly addicted to banners!! Here is my December contribution to the Graphic 45 gallery. Right now, it is hanging in my cube against some seriously drab background. I think I'm going to keep it in my cube to cheer the place up.
