Flowers

Flowers...flowers and more flowers...

The best part of coming back to Singapore is the local scrapbook store is so accessible now! That spells bad news for my wallet though ;-) So I have been to the LSS like 3 out of 5 weeks that I have been back and loaded up on lots of new Prima goodness.

It's also more difficult to find time to scrap now. I have to constantly remind myself that the kids and family are my biggest priority now, so I'd rather spend my free time with the kids while they are awake and around. Adah spends a full day at childcare because the lessons for K2 have been spread over the day, so there are no half days for K2 and I hardly get to spend time with her...

Anyhow, I managed to squeeze out these 2 layouts using my new buys! Primas, Websters, G45 papers and GCD studios...very vintage and they just go so well together...

This is Adah and the layout was inspired by Emeline's challenge over at MWL forum. She is getting tp be such a big girl now! And will be attending primary school next year! I totally adore this die-cut from Websters and I love how the orangy tones match Adah's top. The chipboard bird is from GCD studios and I had painted it over with cackle paint for a more textured look. And the butterflies from GCD are totally gorgeous and realistic too...

That's my boy, Asher...Lots of prima goodness on this layout too. I specially picked up some flowers in greens and blues for boys' layout. I thought butterflies were too girlish so I replaced them with birds instead! Used up my G45 papers from last year. I had to resist buying the new papers launched at CHA so that I can clear my existing stash and be more environmental friendly!

This layout was inspired by the sketch over at Pencillines. I now go for ready sketches to speed up my scrapping...hopefully we can settle in to our new routines soon and I can find some time if I am not too exhausted chasing after the kids and doing housework!
