Pink Sketches #22 and The Story Matters

*Updated post with picture of RAK*
This weeks sketch over at Pink Sketches:

Here's my take on the sketch:

Title: [D]aren

Description: I rotated the sketch to best suit my boy's portrait photo taken when he was in his Playgroup Class. I had fun with the papers, the alphas and the buttons - making the page look messy, busy and fun to look at! Isn't Playgroup meant to be like that - Fun?

Supplies used: American Crafts Cardstock, Cosmo Cricket Papers, October Afternoon Papers, K.I memories papers, Scrap Within Reach Chipboard Alphas and Numbers, Luxe Labels, 7-Gypsies 97% complete stickers and buttons. (From Scarlet Lime Oct'08 Kit)

I had fun doing this layout. Honestly, I had some challenge using this particular kit to play around with as most of the colours are quite fall-autumn colours. I'm glad that I found the right photo with the papers. I think it worked out splendidly cute!!

I had a busy/rough week and life I was late in handing in up my layout.

But I'm glad I got it done and submitted to Kelli =)

I hope you'll have fun with this sketch! Do come and play with us over at Pink Sketches yah?

Heads up, a new challenge over at The Story Matters.

What is Satisfaction to you? What makes you pleased as punch and really satisfied?

Tell us! Share it with us in your long journalling!!

Start your title with "Satisfaction is..."

And here's my layout for the challenge:

{Satisfaction is my reward}

I substituted my photo with a block of journalling instead.

So what makes you satisfied???

Care to share them with me?
I'll make sure you are satisfied too with a surprise RAK!

Leave your comments in this posting yah?

I'll be looking forward to reading what satisfies you. And don't forget to come play along with us over at The Story Matters!

Thanks for looking once again! =)

Here's the stamping-related RAK that I'm giving away!!

Quick! Dateline is 8th March 2009 1800hrs (Singapore time) before I do the drawing of a random winner!

satisfaction, for me, comes from the applause from the audience after a dance performance. knowing that after all those hectic rehearsals, you are appreciated for all the effort put in.

Love layouts with no photos sometimes too!! And your take on that sketch is super cute with all those numbers!

satisfaction for me is always spending time with my hubby and girls - family time and knowing we all love each other! Oh yeah and my sweet little cocker spaniel! ;-)
