Happy National Day Singapore

This is the second National Day that we are spending in Singapore. Words cannot describe the homesickness whenever Singaporeans are on public holiday and celebrating away on 9th August when we were away in Shanghai. The kids now have a better awareness of National Day especially since both of them have had celebrations in their respective schools, and I am comforted that they know more about the country they were born in and belong to.

I hope the kids will 'remember'. There are lots to remember about for them- the alienation of being foreigners in a different country (though we may have simlar cultures), the blessedness of living in a safe and stable country, the comforts that Singapore has to offer and most importantly, they must remember to be thankful for all that!

Lots of fun in creating this layout using old and new stuff from Crate Paper. I splattered some white paint on the background. It's been a while since I took out my mediums to 'play'!Lots of layering as usual, but a really fast layout once the white paint is dried as I assembled everything together.

Do join in the National Day challenge over at Made With Love. There are 3 prizes to be won. One winner will be chosen by the MWL DT and the other 2 winners will be randomly picked. Ooohhh...lots of excitement plus the CHA orders are shipping inover the next few weeks! Looks like Christmas has arrived early on our shores! Lol!

Once again, Happy National Day to all Singaporeans!
