First time playing at....

I have been looking for scrapbooking challenge blog to play along lately, 

and I found this...

Scrap Our Stash Challenge

March challenge is Kraft it up + use 3 or more metal embellishment

I love kraft cardstock and I also have a lot of kraft patterned paper and bits and pieces of left-overs where I can use on this project



first I used kraft paper to punch out lots of borders



sew them on 12x12 kraft cardstock



and then I go digging into my stash for metal embellishment



oh wow, one more piece of "vintage" mental embellishment, vintage to me because it is probably 15 years old, I can't even remember the manufacturer, anyone knows? (I threw the packing away, I think it came in a pack of 2-3 pieces)



a picture of Dolce, first time back to New York City after we moved to Las Vegas, she loves NYC and she make sure she gets in to one of the college there, just look at that face, she can't stop smiling.... the morning when she and I walked out of the hotel.... 






Hello New York

The London Eye?

Nope, bigger than the London Eye!



look at all those high rise, guess it yet?



how about this? does it rings the bell?



What about this amazing architecture?

know the answer?

Ohh cool, looking at all these architectural wonders!!!. I went to Singapore years ago when the coolest thing was the Sentosa water park, no amazing buildings like these :). Gorgeous layout there, I'm loving the organic & simplicity feel about it. Do you know that Daisies are my favorite flower?. And the friendliest flower too :).
