Life Is Berry Sweet

It's been a while since I created a layout to join a sketch challenge. The layout was completed close to 2 weeks ago but I have been procrastinating (really bad) in posting it up. I love sketches for small photos ever since I have started Smash*ing and gotten use to work with smaller-sized photos.. 

Here's the wonderful May Sketch Challenge from Artful Delight

And here's my take for the sketch challenge. Loads of yummies from Crate Paper Story Teller collection.  Love love love the cork board paper!

A lot of layerings here.

Finally I am not too lazy to try embossing technique on my layout.
fyi, the camera is stamped with versa mark & embossed with Zing powder.

Love using jute twines as usual and I decided to go with a more subtle (tinier) title for this layout.

Hearts are punched using this lovely Martha Stewart Heartbeat Border Punch

I always keep all the bits and pieces of papers and couldn't bear to throw them away. So i decide the wrap this tiny stripe of paper around the circle punched out.

Hate working Monday-Saturday, and sometimes Sunday but I keep telling myself life is berry sweet because:

My Mr Strong Man will always be there for me to carry my heavy mail parcel and shopping bag

My furries made my weekends fabulous

Bathing + sunbathing my furries

Highlight of my trip back to Kuala Lumpur... will be meeting up with my scrappy friend

My scrappy friend hand-carved all these lovely rubber stamps.

Meeting up my awesome (and super Crazy!!) animal rescuer friends from Second Chance Dog Shelter

I also made good use of my long weekend by fostering 2 puppies from the doggie shelter.
It was no doubt very busy + tiring weekend to keep cleaning up the mess but having them around is super fun! I enjoy watching them playing and chasing my furries.

And also visiting my rescued-then-rehomed baby - Sammy boy who is now renamed as Maximus Crime (Max). I rescue Sammy the miniature pinscher (the black doggie) back in June last year and it took us over 4 months to get him a loving home. You can find more about Sammy's story here
*Spot the cheeky poodle here? She is a true camwhore / attention seeker! love these pics*

My parents & grannies

Enjoying our Mother's day dinner

My two brothers + younger brother's girlfriend.

My month of May was spent celebrating National Scrapbook Day (NSD) & Mother's day, Smashing, card-making, meeting out with girlies & furries & scrappies, how 'bout yours?
