Don't Forget To Smile

My first layout for the month of May. I created this layout for the White With 1 Challenge plus Deep Black HERE. Sounds easy, right? Before my mojo runs away again, I decided to work on this challenge almost immediately. The not so easy part was to select the photo. Going through the album of photos which I had arranged by theme, I came across this photo of, who else, my darling daughter. This photo was taken during our trip to Johor Bharu in December 2012 but I love this photo of the Child smiling and looking straight into the camera.That was then. Now is a different story altogether.

and just to inspire you a little more - how about this moodboard to grab your attention. Black cats anyone?

Here is the layout:

Sentiment, Raspberry Creative Starburst Rub-ons, Black Gesso, Black Semco Ink, Moof Lace, Phone Decorative Blinks, Micia Ink

Dad's Legacy

These two swings mean a lot to the family. They were lovingly crafted by my father for the benefit of his grandchildren. It started with the plain wooden plank he made while he was in the Navy. Two or three years later, I brought home a piece of wooden plank which was part of a shipment from US. It was the only piece that was not thrown away yet and I ask my workmate for that piece of plank. Not knowing what to really do with it, eventually I brought it home to Dad and told him to do whatever he wanted to. A month later, I came home to see the seated swing. Dad said, it would be easier for his younger than four-year old grandchildren. He really had safety of his grandchildren in mind then. 

Both swings had seen a lot of fights between the grandchildren, laughter, love especially from dad and many meetings were held here. These were the centre of 'congregation' for the children, grandchildren, friends and/or relatives children. This was always the place to be for the children and grandchildren.

Alas, three years after dad's passing, the swings became a legacy. In its place, a store room was erected where mum store the bulky household items. I really am glad to have taken a photo of the swings that once held a piece of our history and our memories.

This layout is created for Home & Scrapped Stash Busting Challenge with the Prompt "History".

We hope you like our inclusion of a sketch to help inspire you further.  You don't have to use this to put in an entry but we'd love it if you do :)

I was inspired by both the colours and sketch of this challenge. The photos were taken during our trip to Bangkok in December 2015. We were waiting for the water-taxi to take us to another part of the town for our final breakfast. This was our last day in Bangkok.

Challenge. Even though the colour orange doesn't appeal to me much, I decided to go ahead and take the challenge to create this simple layout. After putting all the elements together, minimalistic look seem much more appealing.

When Zahra' saw the layout, she asked me what would the Title be. I told her I shall call it 'Citrus', maybe. No, Ibu (that is how she address me), you must call it "Hallabong". "Aunty Mimie (our Korean Tour Leader) keep mentioning it when she was explaining the fruit to us", she said. Come to show she really paid attention to Mimie while I must have been busy taking photos. I did check-up Google to ascertain her word. Thus, the title "Hallabong", a Korean word meaning "The Sweetest Orange". As the name imply, these fruits really have a very sweet taste.

The irony is, these fruit trees can be seen growing along the roads leading to the Natural history Museum of Jeju. Even though the fruits are ripe for picking, no one pick the fruits, no matter how appealing they look. According to Mimie, these fruits are under the Government of Korea's management so no one dares pick the fruit. (Hmm...in my heart I said if this is Malaysia, the trees would have been barren in no time at all). I really admire the mentality of the Koreans for their respect to Government property. Or could it be that severe action will be taken to those who dare to pluck them.
