Whenever we want to feel some cool weather, we would drive up to Genting highlands and parked the car at the parking lot. We then proceed to take the Bubble Car up to Genting Highlands for a short break.All we wanted was the cool air.

So Happy Always

My daugther and her cousin were born four months apart. She was born in September 1999, towards the end of the Millenium, while her cousin in January 2000, a real Millineum child.. Both belong to the Y-Generation with a touch of the Z-Generation. Both are headstrong but they both love one another to pieces.
This photo was taken during the Hari Raya Celebration in 2013 where my sister, Asmah, and her family managed to squeeze some time to celebrate with mum. It was a lovely celebration but the convergence of my siblings in one entirety is now a thing of the past. There will always be one or two siblings missing on the first day of the Eid celebration. This is just one rare moment where my sister and I were able to come together on this auspicious day.
This photo of them shows a beautiful relationship sealed since they were babies. They can be headstrong, they can throw tantrums, they can have their disagreements, deep down I know they really love and care about one another.
I create this layout for Stucksketches August 15, 2017 Challenge. I really love the simple sketch, below:

Using the colours of the dress the two girls wore that day, I came out with this simple layout:

Remember This Moment

This layout is created for the "Home and Scrap" August Use Your Stash Challenge. The theme for the challenge is outlined below:

August Prompt: STRIPS - washi, paper strips, string, ribbons or braids. Use them in straight lines, weave them, plait them, ink them, or whatever. It's time to bust some of those little straight bits of stash. If you have half a truckload of washi rolls, now is your chance to showcase some of it. Or what about those lovely strips that we cut off the ends of our patterned papers? I know I have an abundance of them. Get creative and have some fun. 

I have an abundance of Strips in my stash and this is a good way of using them up or reducing their number. I love this challenge because it allows me to use my stash irregardless of makes. I really enjoy mixing and matching all the way through. Also I do not have to worry whether the papers are latest in the market or not. Most importantly, I love the design or I wouldn't have purchased them in the first place. I hope I can get away from my hoarding habits and start using.

Here is the layout. This is a  continuation of my Korean trip which I am creating an album for. I am so much behind but I hope to catch-up soon. for this layout I use up most of the strips in my stash.

Location: Incheon, Seoul, Korea. Zhara''s first encounter with the Cherry Blossom

Let's Go On An Adventure Together

This layout is a continuation from our 2015 Korean Trip. A rare family selfie taken from one of the wings of Kyongbok Palace. This is a C&S layout for Kaisercraft August Challenge and the theme for this challenge is COGS!

I was delighted to have the Factory 42 Collection papers which I bought two weeks ago when Spotlight was having a 30% Storewide sales. I took the opportunity to buy this collection (even though I already miles long paper collections) because I really like it. When I saw this challenge, I was thrilled to bits as I can use this collection immediately without feeling guilty.

Here is the layout for the Challenge and some close-ups. In addition to the Cogs from the Collectibles, I used Steampunk Gears as an added effect.

Location: Kyongbok Palace, Seoul, Korea
Supplies: Kaisercraft Factory 42 P2374 - Ironworks

Celebrate 16

Finally I got to create a layout of my daughter's 16th birthday photos.  These photos were taken at Great Eastern Mall when Zahra''s friends decided to throw a surprise birthday bash for her. One of her friends collaborated with me to bring her to Great Eastern Mall on that day, October 4, 2015. Even though we are regular visitors to Great Eastern Mall, to ask her to wear something nice without arousing suspicion was the toughest of all. Worst, for me to make a straight face. Somehow she suspected something eventually and she chose to play along.

Imagine her surprise when her friends showed up at the designated area with balloons and other items awaiting her at the Nail Parlour. She had always wanted a manicure and that was her best surprise birthday gift. I really would like to thank Humairaa, Ain, and Atiqah for preparing this surprise birthday do for her. The sad part is, her very special friend did not turn up.

For this layout I used the Scrap Our Stash july-tic-tac-toe-stash-challenge. I decided to use the third row grid, that is, Striped Paper, Tag and Banner.

Here is the layout:

Location - The Great Eastern Mall, Jalan Ampang

Supplies - Kaisercraft On The Dot
Clover 3D Scrapbook Borders - Banner
Black Bazzil Cardstock for matting
Momoyo Flowers
Kaisercraft Stencil
Paper Boutique pp
Zig Pen for journalling
Momoyo Alpha Stamps for Main title
Pop Art Tag sentiment
Lace from stash
 Typo Wooden Flower
Reeves Gesso and Acrylic Paint
Modelling Paste
Kaisercraft Glue Dots

You & Me

This layout is for a Recipe challenge at of Home & Scraped. I have not been participating in Recipe challenges for a long time and now this is a good opportunity for me to use up my stash and photos.

Here is the Recipe for the challenge:

Let's cook up a page :-) 
1 sheet cardstock or paper
2 pink things
2 tags
4 different papers
a pinch of embossing (dry or otherwise)
3 bits of doodling
a title & some journaling
a generous sprinkling of embellishments
ink or paint lightly dusted over
Method: Place all together in a bowl and mix thoroughly to combine. Spread out randomly (or evenly if desired) and bake till done. 

Basically I kept as close to the recipe as possible but I opted out one Recipe, i.e. Embossing because I don't have any in my stash. This is the only item I didn't use.
I realized later I've used more than 2 pink things. I guess when the girls wore something pink, it is not difficult to be sidetracked. All the items used for this layout are from my stash and I am happy to use them up, even the tiny pieces. A really wonderful challenge.

Here is my layout and some close-ups:

This photo was taken when Zahra' and us attended the wedding of Asiah's sister on Aug 2, 2014

Supplies: Making Memories Double-dipped Cardstock
Remnants of Pattern papers from stash
