LO - Happy Pose

Paper: Basic Grey 'Serendipity' (all),
Journal Tag: Basic Grey 'Sweet Thread'
elements: created the stars element using custom star shape and clipped them to Basic Grey patterned papers in photoshop. 

Done this digital layout based on Pamela's World of Scrap bonus sketch # 212. Photo of my 5yo son posing for a shot after his kindy concert. See the red goody bag which he clung on tightly despite me asking him to put aside. He saw his favourite packet drink inside it together with others candy, that's why he could not bear to part with!

LO - You're Such A Hoot!

Papers : Connie Prince (embossed purple card stock), Basic Grey Sultry (purple patterned), Serendipity (yellow, floral cream)
Elements: Samantha Walker 'Kokeshi' (lantern, purple border stripe), 'What A Hoot' (owl, Hoot wordart)

Captured this photo during my 5 years old son's kindy annual concert just happened to be around the Mid-Autumn Festival. He's performing the Indian pop dance. He managed to dance throughout the song, a great improvement as compared to his first concert when he's 3 year's old where he stood still on the stage feeling so lost and!

This layout was done based on a sketch from Crafty Steal Third Thursday Sketch September Challenge with a fall theme. Blog: Third Thursday Sketch Challenge - September

L/O - Childhood Favourite Movies

Paper: Basic Grey PB&J, Clipping
tag journal: Big Picture 
movie picture downloaded from internet.
sketch : PageMaps

Done this layout about my favourite childhood movies. I love scary, romance, adventures and heart breaking drama though I hardly shed tears over them. These movies were shown very much later in our local tv programme. That's my only entertainment that I had besides radio and cassette player. Those were the days.
