Happy New Year!

First post of this year!

LOL, finally I have the mood to update his blog. First of all, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR for all of you. Hope we can make this year better than last year. And I'm sure you had a great new year's holiday, right?

Mine? It's kinda boring. LOL. Actually, the vacation is not over yet for me. My daughter is still on her school holiday till January 10th. A long long holiday. The excitement only last for the first week only. After that, she start to feel bored cause she think she did everything she wanted to do, and now all she want is to meet her friends, LOL.

And what made it worst is that I don't have my laptop with me for the last 2 weeks (until now! I'm using my sister's laptop). Some accident happened when I browsed 2 weeks back, and that's it.... my laptop collaps! I put it for a repair to a shop, and it's still there til now :( I lost most of my files, including photoshop's brushes, styles, actions etc. Arrrrgh.... what a 'great' new year!

Now onto scrapping, the laptop problem makes me very lazy to design (so no freebies!). But I cannot stay away from photoshop, though LOL. So I did some layouts and at least I do enjoy it!

The first one is for "Project 365" at DSC. It is not actually 365 cause instead of one layout a day, DSC challenges us to scrap one layout a week! It's not so hard to do, right. I cannot imagine myself to scrap each of my day through the whole year, LOL. What makes it more interesting is that each month DSC will give us a free template for inspiration. This month's teplate is from Chelcee (click on the image below to get the template).

It's a beautiful template, isn't it? So make sure you visit DSC forum to get the template and join the project. Here's what I did with the template:

I use Tater's GREATEST TIME OF YEAR and Stolen Moments' Date-Go-Round The photo was taken on the first day of January. We were in a mall which had a X-mas program that include artificial snow in it. Nasha (my daughter) was very excited about it. Even though it's only soft soap bubbles instead of ice, but it looked like real snow, LOL

The next layout is for a template challenge host by Pom at DSC forum. As usual, Pom always have a unique and original idea (that's what I admire from her!). Here's the template:

A yummy layout, isn't it? LOL. The idea is actually to scrap a new year resolutions. But I did resolution layout twice already as CT for other designers' product last week. So, I think that's enough. I choose to scrap my muffins instead. I love muffins. It's the easiest thing to bake, and it never take more than 1 hour to make it ready LOL. I used to bake almost everyday, but now, after my second daughter, it's a hard thing to do.

Update: The Muffins layout is mention in DSC January GSO!

And a product from Stolen Moments released last week when I'm away. It's a perfect kit for you who decided t Undoo make some changes in your life? It will help create the pages you need to document these changes - maybe even make yourself a little reminder to see every day and help you along your path.

I did two layouts last week. Here they are:

I wish to make a better interaction with my daughters this year. I became a mother of 2 daughters in the middle of last year. And it was a bit mess for a while, especially when my DH is not around. But I know I have the most precious princesses in the world!

The second layout is actually a 're-make' of resolution layout. I did it with different kit before, but I don't mind o make it once more with this beauiful kit.

OK, enough for now. It's a long post to start a new year LOL. Have a nice year, everybody!
