Impression of CHANGE

Sometime I feel that my boy is still a baby.. Can't believe that he is growing up so fast and now is a smart little boy that often surprised me with his thinking..
Just like when he was one day come to me and ask
B: "Mom, which country has 4 seasons? (because we are staying in Singapore and we don't have spring, summer, winter and autumn).. I really wants to play with snow, but can't go to the countries which are far away from Singapore because the air ticket is expensive."
M: (laugh and also surprised that a 5 years old boy can understand about that).. "Likely the nearest place that has snow and also not so expensive to go is China.."
B: (With full of enthusiasm)... "China? Wow.. I really want to go to China.. People there are very busy and they are working hard"
M: Why did you said so?
B: I read 'made in China' label in almost all of my toys, stationery, shirts and other things! So they must be very busy to make all of those things!
M: (got another surprised and just can laugh..)
Don't you think he is a smart boy??

So, when I got a kit "Impressions Of Change - collab SBG" (available at Scrapbookgraphics) from Emka Designs, I really want to scrap my boy.. a cute baby boy who turns to a smart little boy

The Scent of Coffee

Do you love coffee? No matter what is the answer, I believe most of the scrapbooker will love 'the scent of coffee' kit. Copying the designer's words, it is a kit in colours such as warm brown, beige, cream and cheerful orange; The diversity of elements allows you to make a souvenir from the past, from meeting a friend or family. Delicate, paper butterflies give lightness, dried roses bring back memories and an old paper will immortalise unforgettable moments. When you sit to create your own work, you will smell the real coffee; It's a moment for you - and your memories.

Here are my layouts using 'the scent of coffee kit':

And.. what a good life to have a cup of coffee and get a hug from my darling son:

Quote from Prince Brian D.Fok

I was making a scrap page for the prince's challenge in SBF, when my son came to see me. He saw me putting a crown and prince's outfit on his photo. He also saw many scrap pages of prince and princess. Suddenly he told me, "Mom, if I were a prince then it makes you a queen".. So that's how this quote comes up.

"Do you know why Moms like their son
wearing an outfit like a Prince?
It's because.... it makes them a Queen"

It's a cute quote, isn't it?

Together - Family - Forever

One year ago, 3 August 2008, my father passed away. Being sentimental, I spent the day looking at old photos. It's really sad that I don't have much photo of my Dad, and only couple of family photos with complete family members since (as far as I remember) we only get together for two times; the first time was in 1988 and the second time was in my sister's wedding day in March 1994.

Thanks to the photos and scrapbooking, I could still look at the past and keep that beautiful memories in my heart!Credit: Jolagg, Happy Scrap, Raspberry Road Designs, and Linda's Place
