Whew..... finally.....

It is 7.30 am here in Singapore, we just touched down at 3 am this morning, I don't know how many hours we were on the road, whew..... I am finally back here, why HOME has to so far...... : (

Alright, before I get my day started with food and appointment, I am just going to blog a bit... LOL!

Here's the layout I made for
this month challenge is to use your stamps to make at last one piece of patterned paper and need to have 3 stamped embellishments on your layout

I started with my stamped pattered paper


I used my doily and text stamp, after all the stamping is done, I mist it with Red Velvet glimmer mist over the Tim Holtz Masks....


next, I decide which 3 stamps I am going to use for the embellishment on the layout...


this is one of my all time favorite stamp when it comes to embellishment....


here is what I have......


I just love color of this photo on this layout, see here my sister and my 2 girls few years ago...


lacey banner on top was stamped and embossed with snow white embossing powder..


another lacey banner at the bottom of the page.....


fuzzy cut the stamped butterflies....


but then cutting the feelers (or antenna) of the butterflies is too much work, they are so tiny, so I used twine instead....


love this cluster of blooms, many of them are left-overs from my Pixie Kits...


ok, hope you like this layout like I do.....

Kirsty, I can not believe you are posting after such a long day yesterday! when I traveled to Singapore, my first trip, it was from Lubbock, Texas, to LA, then to Hawaii,(I refused to get off the plane with my baby and three children) then to Singapore about 24 hrs total. I was exhausted and I was just 32. I can not imagine doing it now!
Oh the layout is beautiful! sorry got misdirected ! Love all the stamping you did on your backgraound page.
Have so much fun, I miss you, but I guess in blogland you are not far!
