What have I been Up to the past week?

Busy catching up with my work which was seriously back-logged after Daren's HFMD episode.

Had to rush to finish up the Teacher's Day gifts for Daren's playgroup teachers. They got it a day late after teacher's day, but am glad it was done and given and they were happy to recieve the little gifts.

Did a class project for MemoirActs.

I took longer than usual to complete Pink Sketches #4, not that it was diffucult, I had a heavy week but managed to submit the layout to Kelli. I had fun completing the LO! I thought it was really great how I could do up a LO capturing Daren's various facial expressions, the charming-all-smiles, hearty chuckles and pucker-up looks! Photos was taken by a local photo studio.

Anyway, here's my take for Pink Sketches #4:

{Boyish Charm}

(Click on picture for bigger view)

Description: This sketch was perfect to capture the various photos and looks that we love of our boy from a recent studio photoshoot. I got my husband involved in the journalling process and had him journal along the curvy lines from the left page to the right to creat a flow and connect the pages.

The journalling also allowed each individual page to be seen a single layout as well. Journalling: (Left Page) It's the 1000 watts smile, smiles that radiates charm. You will always warm our hearts with that (Right Page) hearty chuckle. It tells you are not just having fun, but you are secure in our love for you. Love Daddy & Mummy. P.S.: Although you do sometimes charm your way out of trouble. Especially with Daddy. Which works 99% of the time

Supplies List: DCWV Cardstock, October Afternoon Patterned Papers, Making Memories Noteworthy patterned paper, Prima Marketing Voila! die cut art strips, Alphas using American Crafts Thickers, Stickers using Three Bugs In a Rug's Chit Chat Cardstock Stickers and DCWV's "Boy" Quote Sticker Stack.

Below are a "group" shot of the altered clipboards I made for Daren's playgroup teachers. I bought separate magnetic backings and glued them unto the back of the clipboards so that voila! They become magnetic clipboards.

Also, completed my tin album for MemoirActs' Tin Album II workshop which I'll be conducting. Some sneak peeks to share:

Wishing you all a great week ahead!! Don't forget to hop on by Pink Sketches and play along with us for Sketch #4!
