Spring Blossom Quickpage Freebie

My friend, Nia, has been asking how I do this one layout from my post about our Leeds holiday. I tried to think about how to actually explain it to her... but I just found it difficult...

Hence, I worked a little bit on my layout, removed our photos and now give it as my second freebie. The zip file contains below preview plus a png file and a psd file of the layout, you can choose whichever one you want to work with. I kept the size as 3600x3600 pixels (around 51MB). Happy scrapbooking!

You can download it HERE or click on the photo above.
Please leave some love if you like what you see. :)

Addicted to Scrapbook

Lately, I've spent lots of my time scrapbooking! I am officially addicted to this new hobby... I am even thinking, maybe, soon I will start making my own kits like other fabulous designers do! I know I am far from it, but, I think I'd really enjoy doing it :) Maybe I might do it after I finish PhD... who knows...

So, anyway, I have been making a special scrapbook for our wedding photos and I came across making this wordart. Lan likes it, so I thought, maybe others might like it too. The LO on the picture is just an example how I used the wordart. Thus, here is my very first tiny freebie. If you like it, please leave some love. :)

You Are...

You are the LOVE of my life,
You are the HOPE that I cling to,
You mean more than this world to me...

I wouldn't trade you for silver or gold
I wouldn't trade you riches untold...
You are, You are my everything...

- You Are... by Ron Kenoly/Darlene Zschech/Gary Valenciano
It's amazing, when I think of You, Lord... You mean more than anything that I could describe in this life. Thank you for such a wonderful journey of life with You... Without You, I won't be here and I won't have what I have, I won't even have the life I live right now.
You really foreknew me, ever since I was in the womb. You knitted me and shaped me with Your tender and warm hands. Your caress and embrace, I will never forget. And, above all, how You bring meanings to my life that no dictionaries can ever describe.

You are the reasons for the existence of all my beings, my breath, my smiles, my tears and every bit of me.
"I love YOU" is never be enough...

Blessing unexpectedly...

I learnt something new today... That what I think is just a simple thing, can be a huge blessing to other people.
So, lately, I have been enjoying my new hobby to the fullest, that is the digital SCRAPBOOKING! I have decided to join a scrapbooking forum last week, and I have been participating in some challenges they have in there. I have a blast in this forum! People are kind and they give great love and advice for the scrapbook pages I made. Anyhow, yesterday, I saw this challenge, where we were asked to make a page that pictures a 'Motherly Advice', either from yourself (if you are a mom) or an advice that you remember from your mother...
So here is what I made...

At first, I was not sure that it will go a long way, but since I love it, I posted it anyway in the challenge's thread. Surprisingly, after several hours, I got some comments that those who see my page love it! *Thank God for that!*
However, there were two ladies that specifically thanked me for such a wonderful v…

Another piece of puzzles

I welcomed myself to the really of oh-not-so-fairytale marriage right at the beginning, after we tied the knot. However, there are things that until now is still hard to comprehend, compromise or to be handled.
I'd say myself is one of a kind; my characteristic is built through the journey of my life. Hence I have strong personality, strong will and can be quite stubborn sometimes, even to my own beloved husband. Sometimes, things get difficult along the way. We fight, yes... quite several times (and thank God all of them worked out to a better understanding of each other and a better marriage, off course!). For both of us, we stand for our beliefs; often, we try to 'convince' each other that 'my thought is more reasonable than yours'... where discussion turned to be a fight, etc.

These couple of weeks, we started to see how identical we are; stubborn, stone-headed, and only thinking in our own shoes. However, there is still a difference: he thinks with his brain, I …
