Good news before new year. A nice way to end 2013.

2013 is definitely an amazing year for me. Not only I have quite a few projects that get published in Creating Keepsakes magazine, Cards, Scrapbook Trends, Create:Mini album, Cricut...

And I got a lot of invitations in Taiwan asked me to teach classes there. So I went ahead and did it.

I just got back from Taiwan right before Christmas, and it still feel like a dream. A really good one.

And now I am on The Paper Bakery team from January to July, 2014 among with these awesome ladies. Another dream comes true and I am honored and thrilled to continue to do something I enjoy the most. And can't wait to share them all with you.

Been having so much fun meeting all crafty friends all over Taiwan. Finishes a few classes here and also enjoy family time and travel quite a bit.

It's going to be Thanksgiving next week. Start to miss DH and doggie. But we will be spending Christmas together. Can't wait.

{A Layout} Love you always.

We went to the pumpkin patch with doggie on Sunday. And I just adore this shot.
So I can't resist to get this photo scrapped right away.

I just love all the activities we did with my favorite pooch in the world. She is such a great animal, so grateful to have her in our life. Without her I can't overcome my infertility obstacle and deal with some health issues I had two years ago. I treasure every moment spend with her. ^^

[A Layout} Family 2013

[A Layout} Family 2013
Hi there, Happy happy Monday, my blog friends.
It's going to be another awesome week. 

I'd love to share anther layout with you all using Dear Lizzy Polka Dot party by American Crafts. This layout is also for Let's get Sketchy October week 1 challenge.

Fall is definitely my favorite season of all. I love the fall leaves, crisp air and everything about fall. Also during this season, I am grateful that we all are here together as a family. To me, my family here is as important as my family in Taiwan. I am so glad I am going back to Taiwan for 7 weeks to visit my family, friends and all my crafting friends. 

Can't wait.

Fall card

A fall card. Fall is definitely my favorite season of all time. I love changing colors in the fall, although we don't get that much in California. But the cold air in the morning, the light in the evening before sunset is just amazing. So I decide to make a card for the SPC September card making challenge and Let's get Sketchy week 5 challenge. TFL.

A few projects using Bella Blvd products

I am here sharing a few projects I made for the Bella Blvd design team call. But of course, I didn't make it. Sad but I do have a lot fun creating them. So I decide to share them anyway. I do love their new fall/winter collections though. TFL.
