Happy National Scrapbook Day!

First Saturday in May is National Scrapbook Day, how could I not participant? I started scrapbooking way back when I had my first born, and those days, it is not so easy to get supplies in Singapore, so whenever I traveled to Australia, New Zealand or United States, I bought tons of supplies, still remember when we were in Sarasota, Florida one year, my receipt from the scrapbook store there is so long that it is "taller" than me if I place them side by side, my two younger ones were so amused that they want me to take a picture with it!

So..... here is my latest 12x12 layout!

I tried to salvage some of the old photos from the kids album, in these photos, Clare was around a year old....

I used to sing to the kids to put them to sleep, and every time when I sang "You are my Sunshine" to Clare, she would cry, it was so funny!

besides that, she is really my sunshine as she is a happy go lucky girl, happy all the time, till today!

Happy Scrapbooking Day everyone!!!!!
