surprise to me yesterday! I was just going to call it a night at 4am when I checked my email and I received a wonderful news from Lisa Tilmon, the owner of CMK!!

I have to admit that I tried out their DT Call and they finally made the announcement last night. I wasn’t expecting to be called and looking at all those wonderful creations by everyone, the girls are just so talented!! And true enough, the new DTs that made it to the list are just awesome!! A BIG congratulations to them!!

But I was in for a surprise when Lisa emailed me, asking me to be their February Guest DT!!! I’m just lost for words……… This news really made my day!!

It is truly an honour to be given the opportunity to be their Guest DT and thank you Lisa from the bottom of my heart!!

2 Crazy People

In Their Own Crazy World!!

I’ve been left high and dry for the past week and I’ve finally managed to pick up some time to do a little scrapping. I had FUN doing up this LO using all of my favourite brands, Hambly, October Afternoon, Making Memories, Heidi Swapp, Love Elsie, American Crafts and 7 Gypsies!!

These pictures of DH & I were taken last December and I just love how it turns out!! DH & I hardly had the chance to have our pictures taken for the past few years and I’ve decided from this year onwards, I’m going to make sure we’ll have tons of pictures taken our ourselves together!!

Kate O'BrienJanuary 15, 2008 - 2:03 am

that layout is amazing! I saw your work in the DT call at Create My Keepsake and thought for sure you would be on the team. I think your work is incredible!!! Congrats on making guest designer. Submit your pages girl! You have talent.

PandachuJanuary 15, 2008 - 2:52 am

Love the fun pics! Cool use of the Hambly’s!

Ellie AugustinJanuary 15, 2008 - 3:34 pm

Leena see I love your hubby can make silly faces! That’s so cool I wish mine would do that but he always has a face in our pics! lol Its RARE to see him smile in a pic! I love this L.O. Its so sweet! :)

LisaJanuary 18, 2008 - 7:18 pm

Super sweet layout! and great pictures. Love the compilation of different colors and embellishments.

What have I been up to?

Nothing much.

Overloaded with work.

Hangover from late nights.

Baking cakes.

Making tags.

Attended crop party.

Nothing much, eh? LOL……….

Well, I’ve been looking around for some inspiration and here’s what I found at Decor8.

I found this here. Cool isn’t it?

And just look at this!!! I’m so in LOVE with this table!! And the inspiration board!! I found these from here and here.

I LOVE that letters on this wall!! Found it here. I think I’m going to find an empty wall in my place to put up stuff like this!! I can just look at them everyday, to be inspired!! LOL…….

This is such a great idea!! You can see this from here. These hoops are used to hold cross fabrics for embroidery. Hhhmmm…………… this gives me an idea of something I’d like to alter. ;D

And just look at this closet I found here!! I WANT IT BADLY!!! But why do I need another of this??!! Crazy me!! lol……………………….

Don’t you love the colours of this??!! You can find it here. I don’t think so I have enough wall in my place to put up with all the stuff I’ve found today!! Hahahahahaha………………….

And these are sooooooooooo CUTE!!! Looking at these owls just makes me happy! You can find these here.


Alright, that’s enough for a night and it has been truly inspirational and I hope I can find my lost mojo soon!

I had a sudden urge to scrap. Maybe I’ll do something real simple, no cutting of flowers for me this time! I think I’ve been choked with so much cutting I’ve got to take a break!!:D

Have a great evening!!

ellie.augustinJanuary 13, 2008 - 5:27 pm

OH sweetie I am sending you MOJO Sprinkle magic dusk all the way from NY to you!! Goodness you have inspired me loads of time to actually get my bum in gear and scrap so why not send some of that magic dusk your way.. ;)

Happy Sunday (well at least for me it still is! lol)

Michelle SturgeonJanuary 14, 2008 - 1:24 pm

I LOVE those letters on the wall! How cool!

micheleJanuary 18, 2008 - 3:46 am

NancyJanuary 18, 2008 - 9:14 pm

I am now truly inspired! Thanks for sharing all the great sources. I love the hoops. Those fabrics are great and I have to have one of those owls. Cool blog-found you from SIS TV.
