Cocoa Daisy layout...
























You can tell that I love playing with paints and mists :)
Om is home today with doses of antibiotic, cough medicine, nasal spray, etc. Let's see how this day unfolds for us...

H.E.C.T.I.C. day...

It hasn't been a whole week of school and Om fell sick. He got an ear infection, congestion and a bug bite!!! He stayed home today... L.O.N.G. day... poor little boy!
My day was crazy busy too! Hence, blogging at 10.20 pm.
Before I get into bed, thought I'd share a page I did for Cocoa Daisy with the September kit Brighter Skies.
I had fun with this kit :)























Night night!

A tutorial























I made this layout for my Crate Paper blog tutorial for August. The Restoration collection is really inspiring. I love the warm colors so much. The papers do all the work for you and the accents are just fabulous. I had much fun making this page.
Happy Wednesday :)

Lot of

scraps...all over the floor... scraps from ages ago hiding under something... it is overwhelming to some extent. And then there is the urge to just pick up those scraps and start playing and forget the floor, shelves and general mess... yet, feeling restless knowing that I need to do what needs to be done!!!
Anyhoo, here's a share.
And another at the Scotch (TM) 3M website:























Happy Thursday :)

Still playing...

Still having fun making stuff for no immediate reason... just for fun and loving it :)
Also working on updating supplies and reorganizing the studio, falling in love with papers, trinkets and paints all over again...















Paint is magical, I tell ya!!!
Also planning to try out a few techniques that's swirling up a storm in my mind... you know, the kinds that won't let you fall asleep at night... still mentally refining them.
But first, need to finish cleaning up and getting things ready for school to start next week.
Happy Monday :)

Creating just for fun today...

I had been busy with stuff and hadn't had a chance to make things just for fun lately... I picked today (even though I should probably clean my room instead!!!) to have some fun... it's sunny yet raining outside... I'm going through photos and scrappin' them! Have some plan for a mini too.
Summer vacation is almost over here and kids will go back to school soon :(
Yesterday, I got my September CK... love to get magazines!!!
If you have a copy already, you may have chanced upon my article "Back To School In Style" on page 62. If you don't have a copy yet, you may follow this link and check out a sneak peek here.
And across from our street by the golf course right now are mushrooms...
