City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 152 ~ Washi "Tag"

City Crafter Challenge Blog

Week 152 ~ Washi "Tag"

Washi tape is trending now

and I have tons of them but still keep buying... : )

so let's think of something we can do with them

how about a tag with Washi Tape and called it

Washi "Tag"

I actually make lots of them, I like having these tags at home, they are so handy when I want to do a last minute gift, or send someone a little note.... I usually leave it blank and stamp the sentiment, add a bow or tie it to a gift bag when I need it

this roll of Washi tape I used was bought in Japan last October, love it

come on and play along with us

City Crafter Challenge Blog

where am I now?

{3rd stop}


I am amazed my friends, you gals are so clever,  yes, we flew from Singapore to Bangkok, Thailand. Since I've been to Bangkok many many times, so we are only staying for one night this time round

We got here near dinner time and was very tired, after dinner, we visited the famous Erawan Shrine (San Phra Phrom in Thai or the famous 4 face Buddha), walking distance from our hotel and then went back to the hotel to rest.  

The resident Thai dance troupes, who are hired by worshippers in return for seeing their prayers at the shrine answered

Today is a full day of sight-seeing and then we will be flying to our 4th stop late this evening

can you guess where we are going next?

come on

play along with me!!!!!!

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
