Happy Birthday Stella!

I am such a dock, the traveling certainly didn't help, I got back to work right away, still haven't got time to get over jet-lag yet, and the people at the Singapore Club is giving me so much trouble, I decided to step down as president just to allow myself to have some peace in my life, and guess what, I totally forgotten about the post for Stella's birthday, not only that, I made the card before I left for Singapore and now I can't find it, sigh......

I am so sorry Stella for being late for this post.

Happy Birthday YOU!

I hope you join us HERE to wish Stella a happy birthday!

It's weekend already?

Ahhhh.... it is weekend already. Time sure flies by when you are busy.
I started one of the three albums I supposed to make for my aunt, but just the cover is done, sigh..... I really wish I have more time in my craft room. Today, I am going to get my DT work done, and then continue with the album, so..... no new stuff, just something I dig out from my photo folder.

Hope you have a fun-filled weekend!

Busy busy busy......

Although I am back, but I started teaching summer classes right away, and while I was in Singapore, my aunt handed me some assignment, LOL! She just went to Bali with her co-workers and she wanted me to make 3 albums as gifts for them, so I am putting my own thing aside, probably not so much time to take part in the regular challenges I used to take every week for now until I finish the albums.

I do have project I made some time ago to post here today.

and a group photo of the family the day before we leave Singapore.

Mom and aunts, uncles and cousins, next to me is my pretty little sister.

Thanks for stopping by.

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 271 ~ Hemp and Twine will be fine

Hello friends, I am back!
40 hours ride, can you believe it? 6+ hours from Singapore to Seoul, 7 hours lay over, 12+ hours Seoul to LA, our flight from Seoul delayed an hour, that make us missed our connection from LAX to Las Vegas, so our bags were check into the next flight, and we found out that the flight that left turned back to LAX due to bad weather, although we are able to get on the flight that we missed, but it sat on the runway till 4 PM, which is 3+ hours delayed, whew..... we finally got home.

I haven't got time to blog as I get back to work right away, however, it is Tuesday and we have a new challenge at 

Stella is our host this week and she said
