…and I’m back the very next day with a post! Can you believe that?! How about I just not write anything, and I just share photos from my iPhone? Sounds like a plan to me!
Just looking at these photos are making me want to be back in Hawaii. I’m hoping we’ll be able to go back later on this year; I’ve got my fingers crossed.
Aside from my daydreams to be back in Hawaii, I have actually been scrapbooking. *gasp* Hah! Here’s a sneak of a layout I created using The Sampler’s April kit:
I plan on posting this layout on their blog tomorrow, so look out for that.
I’m back from vacation, which means there’s a dire need of a new post(s), hah. Today, I thought I’d share some of the more recent layouts I have made.
The first layout below was created using some of the latest goodies from Elle’s Studio. I love that they now have their very own patterned papers that match their cute embellishments. The bright colors are totally up my alley. I also added a ton of older scrap pieces; it always a good feeling to use up your older stash.
These next two layouts were created using March’s kit from The Sampler Kit Club.
Thanks for looking and letting me share some of my recent work.
Make sure to stay tuned for later this week. Once I get our pictures and videos uploaded from our recent trip to Hawaii, expect a long post filled with pictures of our adventures in Maui and the Big Island. …and mind you, there’s some awesome stuff to share!
Nothing new and exciting to share today, other than I’ve been feeling icky and sick. I knew something didn’t feel right (other than the fact that I couldn’t hear out of my left ear), so I rushed myself over to urgent care on Saturday afternoon. I wasn’t thrilled that the wait was a little over two hours, but I knew I needed to see a doctor.
Well, the doctor confirmed that I have an ear infection, in not one ear, but both of them! Big ouch!
Believe it or not – I have never had an ear infection up until now, not even when I was an infant! It must have stemmed from the cold I was fighting. Anyway, now that I’m on antibiotics, I’m feeling slightly better. I’ve got my fingers crossed that I continue to feel better throughout this week.
On another note, I just wanted to share a quick post of a layout that I finished up last week.
I love, love, love the bright colors on this layout. I used a combination of the latest stuff from Echo Park and Glitz Design. The orange and blue hues are so fun and so full of life! Oh, and I’m sure you can tell that I went washi tape happy on this one, hehe.
Also, make sure to check out this card that I posted over on the Sampler Kit Club blog last Friday:
Pssst… I actually stamped a little bit to finish this card, hehe. …and yes, I used washi tape on the card, lol. Make sure to follow their blog for the latest projects using their current kit.
Oh, and a quick update on Maui and Hilo: they’re SPOILED! I found these at Target on clearance, so of course, I bought them each a toy. They’re in LOVE with them. I seriously have a love/hate relationship with Target. You go in there to buy ONE thing, and you come out with a cart full. I need to practice better will power when I’m in there.
Anyway, I’ll leave it at that. Keep your fingers crossed that my sinuses clear up quickly. I really, really need this to be a speedy recovery.
We’re back at Friday again. Yippee! The weekend is finally here! As far as plans for this weekend, I’m not sure if we’re going to stay close to home where I can scrap, or if we’re taking a fun road trip somewhere. Either way, I’m just glad it’s the weekend.
On another note, I’ve been cranking out layouts. Perhaps, it’s because the inspiration from the gals over at The Sampler Kit Club have been spreading their mojo my way. As a matter of fact, I shared a layout over there this morning. Here’s a little sneak of what I posted today on their blog:
To see this layout in its entirety, make sure to visit today’s post!
If you feel inspired, head on over to their blog and play along. I believe there are prizes up for grabs to those who play along. Here’s my interpretation of the sketch, using pictures of Maui’s pupcake from her birthday earlier this month:
Aside from the recent layouts I have created for the Sampler, I’ve been busy making other layouts.
Happy Friday, everyone!
It seems that there’s a habit forming – Friday has become my day to post. Honestly, I wish I could post at least twice a week, but time has not allowed me to do so.
Last weekend, we threw a Chinese New Year dinner party with our family and close friends.
It was a lot of fun to share culture with some of our closest friends, but it was even better with all of the yummy food we devoured. We went hot pot happy. Mmm, mmm! Just thinking about it makes me drool, hehe. We then, of course, played Cards Against Humanity, late into the night.
The morning after our CNY dinner party, we went kayaking over in Moss Landing. It felt great to be kayaking again; I really missed the workout and thrill you get from it. Besides, when you’re spotting out all of the sea life around you (an abundance of sea otters and sea lions), it doesn’t feel like you’re working out at all.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to visit again soon. I’m hoping that with nice weather around the corner, it’ll make a great weekend excursion.
Last but not least, make sure to head on over to the Sampler blog for a post written by moi. Here’s a sneak peek of the layout I’m sharing:
I’m looking forward to this long weekend. What about you?
Happy Friday, everyone!
