Picturesque Post

This week over at Pink Sketches. Here is Sketch #29:

Here is my layout:

Description: I did this for my god-daughter, Jayda. She's such a cutie! I used part of the K.I Laced cardstock as a mask when I glimmer-misted the white cardstock. I smeared Stickles over the laced cardstock as well as the alphas to give it a slightly textured look.

Supplies: Papers - Bazzil Cardstock, K.I Memories Laced Cardstock, Making Memories Flower Patch, Imaginisce, Alphas -American crafts Thickers, Making Memories Tiny Alphas, Embellishments - Tim Holtz Philosophy Tags, Making Memories Ribbon Trims and Buttons

Do come over and play along with us for this week's sketch.
Do remember to email your entry to Kelli yah?
I had a really long (and tiring) but fulfilling weekend.

Dave travelled and still is travelling for work and he was back home for about 24 hours before he flew off again.

We went for some dim sum at Yum Cha at Chinatown.

Totally YUMZ!!!!!

I like that for the price we paid, it's really nice and not overtly expensive!
We were too hungry...so I didn't take much pictures in the dim sum restaurant.


I did take some photos of the nice and brightly coloured shophouses.

Love the colour of this shophouses!

You gotta love the assortment of colours here too!

Here's like a lane of shops to attract tourists to get some souvenirs.

Then off we went to the Marina Barrage to meet up with Dorcas and her daughters, and my good friends with my god-daughter. We thought it would be good to bring them there for some water-play in this hot weather.

I'll let the photos do the talking here :)

Here's inside the gallery :

A Huge "Wall" made up of plastic drinking bottles


A happy and bouncing boy

Here is outside at the water-playground:



(it's so hard to take a nice picture of him here, He keeps facing his back away from me)

A slightly better shot (but his face is not looking into the camera)

Kerris getting a dip with her little feet.

Can you see that Kerris is one contented baby?

One of my favourite pics of the day
(despite that it's not the most ideal "composition")

There's still a bit more photos to share. I'll do so when I find the time to load up the 2nd part of it.

In the meantime, have an awesome week!
