A new layout and a giveaway!

The laundry from our vacation is finally cleared and ironed, the unpacking is done, the photos uploaded onto facebook and finally, I can get back to my scrapping! Moving back to Singapore and being on MWL's DT means I can access the latest new arrivals every Thursday and I am horrified at how much stash I have accumulated since our move back in February. I almost need another new set of cabinets and my exisiting cabinet's drawers can hardly be shut in already! Lol!

Anyhow, I have to use up my stash quickly and I have sworn off anymore buying! This photo is one of my favourites from our recent vacation. The kids have made up a new song that just goes,'Friends Forever' (repeat 10 times at least!) whenever I ask them to pose with their arms around each other. Lol! I love love love the greenery and drier weather in Australia. The kids were not screamish about sitting on the grass or logs as they were mostly dry unlike Singapore's greenery which is always wet from the rain and humidity.

I used lots of yummy Websters Pages, Wonderfall collection here and twined the yellow lace around the vintage netting, also from Websters. Lots of cut outs as usual from their papers and their vellum sheet too. With websters' papers, I usually just do a lot of cutting and use them to embellish, saves me the trouble of searching through my stash for stuff that I always cant seem to find and turn up when I dun need them! Again, the consequences of over stashing!!!


Some close-ups! Love how the little trolley adds a vintage child-like charm to the layout and the kiddos have a similar one at home that they use to transport their toys around!
Twined lace and netting, with Prima's crystals for a little 'bling'.

I love that little bird there...so sweet...


And finally, thanks for reading to the end! As promised, I will be doing a RAK giveaway to share my joy of being on MWL's DT! Papers from Echo Park and flowers from Prima and those purple and white flowers there were bought in Shanghai, very pretty! I haven't seen them around here yet...Leave a comment for me and I will try to find some time to leave some love on your blogs too. I'll get my most helpful assistant, Adah to pick a winner next Monday!
