Scrapbook for Grandma's 80th Birthday..!!

It indeed is a blessing to celebrate a life and celebrate God's goodness and faithfulness. It's not just the long life we celebrate but His love, mercies, blessings and overwhelming grace. 

My Grandma is a retired primary school teacher. Hundreds of students have studied under her and it is such a joy to invest into someones life. She has always inspired me, her love and energy with the kids at school and with kids at home too. I Guess me and my siblings were not very easy bunch of kids - we were trouble makers, hyper active and loud. But looking back at our childhood it is her we reminisce. My cousins were also the ones who were nurtured under her. And the most blessed is the one who is still being directed, nurtured and matured under her wing. Many times people question the meaning and point of life - I guess it is when you live till the end is when you find answers.

Well, so my siblings and me decided to do something different to commemorate her, and the idea of making her a scrapbook came along. In our excitement and so on we didn't notice what materials we used and so on. We even forgot to take the pictures of the scrapbook we prepared :(. But I have this one picture of the title page I took which I would like to share with you all.... though it's not very complete.

Spring Blossoms

Guess this is what I do lately when I have spare time. Helps with depression  and keeps me busy. Well this is for Freshly Made Sketches

I had fun making this one. I used a paper doily to make that flower. Used patterned paper from Simply Cards and Papercrafts: The Botanical Collection and Kate Knight: Totally Tropical Summer papers (both were my free gifts). Card stock is from the local store. I guess, that's it. And here's my take...

Casual Spring: CFC50

This is my first entry to CAS-ual Fridays

Love all the cards done by the DT. They are just so fabulous and really sets you in the "spring" mood. It has been raining cats and dogs here in Penang. Can't wait for some sunshine. Well, I love the 'Spring is in the air' and the 'April showers'.

Material used: Well card stocks and stamps from local stationary shop. Ink from Versafine Onyx Black for the flower stamps and Versa Color Green for the sentiment. The green, orange, blue and yellow are squared at 3cms. And that's it.

 Here is mytake on the Mojo Monday 238. Inspired by the Sketch design by Mary Fish. Since the colours I used for this card is inspired by The Paper Girls Challenge 6: A Photo inspiration. I guess this card goes to both these challenges.The card stock used are from My Mind's Eye. The Black and Yellow card stock and the sentiment is from a local store. Ink used is Versa Fine. The patterned paper are squared at 1 inch and the black base is squared at 1.1 inch. The card measures 4 x 5 inches.

Save us Card

Came across another challenge on Creative Belli Blog. The theme was Animals. And I had this unusual animal in my box. Though it is a mammal but I guess we can consider it as an animal too haha... So I came up with this. Since I couldn't think of doing anything else with this. Oh, and I surprised myself by using this stamp as my family and friends can vouch for me if I say that I am afraid of Sea creatures.

I am entering this card for the Creative Belle Challenge : Animals
