I made these pretty bookmarks for my tuition kids and cousins. Each verse is painfully chosen for them, especially the one regarding anger for my favourite Ebell. The lord's prayer is to be with me everyday till I memorize it. I'm halfway there but I'm contemplating keeping it to remind myself of how good God is to me and everyone of us out there.

Love this quote from Unity stamp blog! "There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama & the people who create it & surround yourself with people who make you laugh so hard that you forget the bad and focus solely on the good. After all, life is too short to be anything but happy." These are the people who make me laugh and I'm thankful for that. Just went to MWL today and I saw people voting for my layout. Felt so happy, encouraging and grateful! Thanks Tingfang for my voting for me! :) Once in a while, things like this remind me of how lucky I am, to be given support and love in the most unexpected way.

I attended the crop party on Saturday at MWL and I've heaps of fun, especially with Swee Ching and Irene dressing up as wasted rock chicks! Even Yap can't take his astonishing eyes off Swee Ching, who has never appeared this HOT before!! Taken from Made with love blog More pictures there! Way to go, she's one dare devil! :) And I did only one layout during the 7 hour crop as we spent too much time playing games and chit chatting!! Poor boyfriend was waiting for me at the cafe while studying all this while! Despite my constant begs not to come along and wait, he insisted! Tell me who has a more patient bf than mine?! So out of gratitude and love, I did this layout of us!! :P The close ups: I totally adore this because he says that it's my best layout so far! Did I tell you he's one big critic of my work?! Which makes me adore this layout more! Goodnight world! -Scrap addict (that's what he calls me!)

I'm taking part in the Scrap Idol Challenge by Made with Love! The challenge is to seek inspiration from any CD cover and come up with a 12" by 12" layout. This is one of my all time favourite CD! I adore classical music. It's so beautiful that I can listen to it over and over again. Love the look of this cover too! And this is my take on the challenge: Close-ups: Do vote for me if you drop by at Made with Love! :)

I've not scrapped in the longest time and guess what?! I made 3 layouts in a day just to enter for the G45 DT call. It's one of my favorite brands around and their papers are so gorgeous and easy to scrap for old photos. I made two layouts using their papers and the other layout was made mainly from K & Co. My mum's birthday was yesterday and our family had a great time spending the whole day together. It has been a long time since we went out for dinner. We even bowled before dinner and I saw my Dad bowl for the first time in my life! He's so good at it, despite the fact that his last bowling session was 20 years ago and he sprained his back last fortnight! Though I was excited about seeing him bowl, something I had been looking forward to since young as he won lots of trophies, I was extremely worried about him aggravating his injuries! What a contradiction but it turned out fine. Thank God for that! On another note, my mum acted like a gleeful little girl, smiling from ear to ear the whole day at the activities we planned for her. Instead of buying her presents which she strongly discouraged, I made a layout for her and paid for dinner! I guess she's happier this way!

One of the issues you face as a student is about school politics. Yes, politics even before you enter the workforce. Especially so in my final semester, I see the ugly side of human nature. I've seen girlfriends falling out over projects and even resorting to students sucking up to the prof in the hope of getting a better grade during presentations. Presentations are the heavyweights in each module, second to the final paper. Not surprisingly, even someone so uncompetitive like me can become very concerned about project presentations. I got a shock of my life last Wed when I presented with my group mates. In all fairness, even slack members will put in effort when it comes to presenting their bits, though they slack A GREAT DEAL when it comes to brainstorming and coming up with the materials. My group mates are not only slack, they are totally unprepared for the presentations! Goodness.. One actually had stage fright in the middle of the presentation and silence filled the seminar room for a good few minutes while we struggled to speak for her. The other slack one did not prepare his slides, after MANY warnings from us and presented his parts in stutters. I supposed we were degraded for not ending the presentation on time and for the hiccups for whatever reason. At the end of the day, I'm shocked at what had happened. The good thing out of this is that I appreciate my other 4 group mates even more for the fluent presentation after multiple rehearsals and preparations. I made these bookmarks to thank them! Thanks girls, for being such great project mates! O
