Happy Birthday Singapore and Pink layouts

Hey everyone! How are you all doing?

Yesterday, Singapore celebrated her 44th birthday!

Happy Birthday Singapore!!

Both David and I were impressed with yesterday's National Day Parade (which we've been watching since kids) and I think that this is by far the best NDP show ever!

And it's a no wonder, Ivan Heng is this year's Creative Director and I totally love how the usual national day songs were put together in a lovely medley ala musical style!

There's a great showcase of the diversity in Singapore's culture - an electic mix of races and culture that makes up Singapore.

When we were to say out pledge together as a nation at 20:22 last night, David and I had tears and conviction to our eyes. Sounds too corny but it's really true. There's unity in what we do as a nation.

Truly this is the place where we call home. The place where we grew up with family and friends. The country in which David and I met and got married and started our home and adding to its number.

A place of comfort and safety - familiar with its surroundings and how things work.
At times, we might not agree entirely with the policies or the decisions made for the country, but we know that no matter what, we are proud to be Singaporeans.


Once again, I love you Singapore!!

This week over at Pink Sketches is Sketch #40.

I did 2 layouts this time round. Really simple layouts with Kraft Cardstock!

Title: Me Likey Ice-Cream
Journalling: You totally love the soft ice-cream in a cone from Ikea - your favourite hang-out with Nana. You can totally have an ice-cream cone all to yourself!! Love, Mummy.

Supplies: Bazzil Kraft Cardstock, SassafrasLass papers, Imaginisce Papers, American Crafts Thickers

Title: Pox of the Matter

Journalling: Twenty Seventh May - You started to break out in watery blisters on your thigh and the small of your back. Before we know it you were covered from head to toe. Praise God that you didn't have fever or any other discomfort.

Supplies: Bazzil Kraft Cardstock, My Little Shoebox papers, SassafrasLass papers, American Crafts Thickers, Making Memories Tiny Alphas and October Afternoon Cardstock Sticker Alphas.

I do hope you like my layouts...I'm feeling somewhat "rusty" after not scrapping for nearly 2 months!

Do come by Pink Sketches and play along with us yah?
