City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 130 ~ Be Inpsired

Happy Tuesday, it is City Crafter Challenge Blog new challenge day and a purple kind of day for me..

remember this sneak a while ago?


Yep, I made this layout for this week's challenge over at City Crafter Challenge Blog

Be Inspired

Hosted by Ros, she wants to see a bible verse or inspirational verse on your creation

without MUSIC.....


Life would be a mistake

~ Fredrich Wilhelm Nietzsche


I remember this performance Clare had when she was just 10 years old
Playing for a Red Cross charity event, and the guest of honor is the Prime Minister of Singapore Goh Chok Tong (2002)


time has gone by so quickly, my little Clare Bear had grown and she is now on her own, I accompanied her for all her musical journeys since she was 6, experienced all the anxieties, nerve wracking moments, gone through lots of concerts, piano competitions, each time when I was so nervous and about to faint at backstage, I said to myself "this is last, I am not going to do this anymore" but we went on, and on, and on........ and then finally, she is grown and all on her own, this coming Sunday, I am just going to sit with the audiences and watch my Clare Bear play her first recital at CalArts (California Institute of Arts), memories took me back to Carnegie Hall, Esplanade Concert Hall, The Juilliard School.......I think I am beginning to feel anxious again.....



Come play along with us

Great layout and your choice of colours, i love purple! the picture is lovely, children grow up so fast.
as for my guinea pigs, you are like my niece ( she is 26) she can't stand furry animals, she is scared of them. They are the sweetest animals on earth :) they never bite and so soft to stroke. I could go on and on lol
Have a great day.
