Finally get my creative mojo back, and created this layout for my Facebook group challenge. I used the photos that I took from our flight to Florida for our Caribbean cruise last April. And I am totally in love with the view. Flying on a jet plane always amaze me. After I finished this layout, I get excited for our upcoming trip in May. It's going to be another amazing trip. :)

The play date cafe challenge 177 Nautical Breezes: Hello Curaçao.

 Nautical Breezes

Hello Curaçao

I've been following The Play Date Cafe for a while now. And I finally decide to give their challenge a try.  And here is the perfect challenge for me to enter. I just love this color combo. It's definitely one of my favorite. And I am so happy to break through the new collection from Miss Fancy Pants: Down by the shore. And also some from Yes Please and Uncharted waters.

 The color scheme in this collection reminds me a lot happy memories from our Caribbean cruise last April. So I created tis layout for the photo I took in Curaçao. Before I printed my photo I added a litttle caption on my photo as a nice title. TFL and hope you like it.

2013. Project life Week 12-2 /生活紀錄第十二週-2  

This spreads took me a while to finish. I've noticed I probably take way too many photos everyday. So it's challenging to pick photos to include. You know I like them ALL. lol

But I can use those photos which are not in the album for my layouts.So they never get wasted.

Spring is probably my second most favorite season. My number 1 choice is Autumn. lol Spring has bring so many photo opps around us. I just can't resist to notice the cherry blossom,  beautiful roses and even dandelions. Hubby always tease me about loving the weeds that he has to get rid of in the yard. But they are just so lovely, won't you agree? So this photo inspired me to make this layout. And I am loving everything about it.

{A Layout} Lucky to have you.

Hello Saturday.
I am here to share a layout that I did with you. I love Amy Tangerine's hand sewing/stitches techniques. So I decide to try it after I got her Embroidery Stencil Kit.
And I love the results.  Also, her Yes Please collection is also my new favorite. The colors here is so delightful ad it's perfect for spring and summer.

And here are some more close up.And you can see my complete supply list here.

{A Layout} Together

 I am a big fan of the random shots. Whenever we spend sometimes in the backyard, setting my timer for my camera is my must do. Love how it captured the randomness of us. Didn't I mention about loving Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm and Maggie Holmes by Crate paper collections enough? lol

And here are some more close ups.

2013 Project life Week 11

2013. Project life Week 11-1 /生活紀錄第十一週-1


2013. Project life Week 11-2 /生活紀錄第十一週-2 

Finally get  to take some photos for my project life Week 11. I've been sick for 2 weeks and it has been so challenging to blog. But I still manage to get some crafts done though.

During Week 11, I went to Filoli garden with my Zumba peeps. They are who I get see and workout together everyday. I am so glad to be able to do fun stuff with them. And I also went to Scrapbook Expo with my crafty friends. We spent a whole day  in the show and we went to dinner together that  night. We came home after midnight. It was just so much fun to chat about pretty much anything. lol
In these spreads, I also used some of my favorite buys from the expo, such as Maggie Holmes collection by Crate paper. I just love, love this line.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
