City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 251 ~ Washi Tape

This week at

Stella wants us to used WASHI TAPE on our creation.

when I send care packages to my daughter, I like to include a photo of Papi because I know the girls miss him too.

I guess I was in a hurry sending the package to Clare and took only 2 pictures for this project with my phone. Both the top (blue) and bottom (floral) are washi tapes....

I also have another project that I have not post here, a THANK YOU card with holiday washi tape because I made that around christmas time.

let me dig further into my photo folders...

Oh I found these little glassine bag with washi tape too

they were used to house these little tags I made for a student's grandma, who ordered a batch of different stuff from me....

Come play along with us at

For the whole month in March, you are in for a treat because we have Darnell as our March Special Guest Star, she will be showing you her lovely week the entire month.

Don't forget to check out the CCCB Designers too.

Our Beautiful World And A Handmade 2015 Planner Book

I finally able to sleep in this morning, and then go to my craft room and get all of my DT work done ahead of time..... and I found "something" I can take picture for this week's prompt at

I tried to find stamp that look similar to the patterned paper I used

it's amazing some just look like a set - paper and the stamp

Project Life 2015 ~ January 16 to 31

Project Life 2015

January 16

Today, I am done with Mr. Fox's top.....

jeans and boots....

and a scarf too...

January 20

Dolce went back to NYC for school today, little Papi is a little depressed here...

daddy try to cheer him up....

January 21

It is DH's birthday today, just like last year, I baked him pineapple upside down cake, his favorite!

January 23

Today is our wedding anniversary, we went to another cirque du soleil show, Mystere, this gotta be on top of my list, it is fun and hilarious!

January 25

I have been bothered by the problem happened at the Singapore Club, some evil soul decided to stirred things and caused a lot of trouble for me, I was deeply effected emotionally and physically, so to cheer me up, we took Papi to visit his grandma (the owner that sold Papi to us). You should see Papi meeting his little brothers, they were so tiny, like 4 pounds each, but when little brother tried to kiss Papi, he just duck away and hide his head behind me, oh Papi, he is our little baby..

January 29

Not only the issue at Singapore Club is bothering me, we had an unfortunate event around midnight today, 5 teenagers in a pick up truck came to our neighborhood, rang the door bell and then ran back to the truck, waving to us and took photo with their cell phone while we opened the window to see what happened, I saw them drive to our neighbor's house doing the same thing again, I ran downstairs trying to take down their license plate, when they saw me standing in the middle of the road, they even try to run their truck over me, where are their parents when the kids are playing punk like that in the middle of the night? 
Nothing is going smooth in life for the past week, sigh....

Papi had a little adventure today......

he went outside by himself when daddy took him to the backyard, he sneak out from the side gate while daddy was filling up the fountain, and daddy didn't know Papi wasn't around until 20 minutes later. Good thing is that, when daddy went outside to find Papi, Papi was just sniffing around outside the neighbor's garage door, whew..... and all these happened when mom is not home. : 0

January 30
My typewriter finally arrived today!

I decided not to look for a workable vintage one but just go for one that I know for sure that it is working, now I am able to read my own handwriting when I do the journaling for my project life spread, LOL!

January 31

I never like hamburger, but Shake Shack at Madison Square park, NYC is exceptional, I just love that! We learn that they opened a Shake Shack here in Las Vegas, we finally go there to have my favorite hamburger and fries today!

I also have a creamcicle float! Yum!
