My son, Tim's Baby Album!

8:14 AM Posted In Edit This 2 Comments »
That's me with Tim in my arms. He was such a good & beautiful baby! Never gave me sleepless nights! I had so much fun digging into all the embellishments I bought & collected throughout the years. Without hesitation, I put in as much as I possibly can!
These two pages are placed next to each other. Blue was chosen as the main color & the accent colors were chosen as closely to each other. Careful consideration of not choosing too great constrasting colors helps to tie the two pages more harmoniously together.

These were the very first photos taken of Tim after birth, "sunbathing" because of mild jaundice. He was completely naked, so I tried to "preserve" his decency by laying strips of ribbons across his middle!

This design was inspired by the logo on Tim's jacket. There were so many animals photos they took at the Toronga Zoo, I decided to make use of most of them.

These photographs were taken at the Blue Mountains. The layout & colors chosen were inspired by the colorstrips behind the one of the photos. Many asked whether the aborogine man is real! HE IS...! But definitely not the naked lady Thomas is leaning on & smiling SO gleefully...!

Birthday card for cute little Girls!

This doll is from Sizzix dies, the balloons & the doll's blouse from Jeart dies. I punched out a scallop circle shape, cut away a few segments & scored evenly some lines from the centre out & then fold it into a fluted skirt.

Happy Anniverary!

Thanks for your comment Laura! I decided to make another one because I like the Wedding one so much too! I did this one for an Anniversary in bold colors. I love the way the black & white checks brings out the colors of the flowers. I will reserve this one for someone special!

Dad & Mum

Mum & Dad were so pretty & handsome ( still are!) & I highlighted some of their characters & personalities by writing them on the sunflowers. The pig reminded me of the story how Mum had to feed dozens of swines right after working in school as a teacher. She is never idle!
The 2 cats reminded me of the 2 we had as children which we loved so much & I did the colors as closely to resemble them as possible!

My parent's wedding day!

This is the ONLY wedding photo (original) my dad & mum took on their wedding day! It shows my mum walking down the little lane toward my dad's wooden house in Sg Bidut, a small village just opposite the Rejang River.

I scanned the photo & zoomed in to get a closer view. I then chalked the photo for that aging look. They were a great couple, & still a great couple today! I love them very much!

There are so many cut-out dies in my stash that I have to put them to good use once the inspiration comes! Here are some tags I have made & given out to a friend who loves blessing others with them.

Year end & beginning of a new year spells ..."WEDDINGS"! November & December season smells so "romantic", and so is January & February, just before & after Chinese New Year for that "auspicious" day!

We are bound to receive a series of wedding invitations & the greatest task is getting that "special card for that special couple"! No better fun & so meaningful is making that special card yourself! This one was done for a friend who asked me to do it for her friend's wedding & found out I am also invited to the same wedding!

Tim & Tom's Aussie Trip 08

1:03 AM Posted In Edit This 0 Comments »
This albums holds 8"x8" pages. Thomas prefers this size because they are less bulky & I thoroughly enjoyed scrapping them because Tim was so much fun in these photos & Tom was creative & fast in catching those precious moments!

I love this photo of the Tim & Tom in the dark shadow with the Harbour Bridge behind them. A great photo to introduce Australia on the very first page in this album.
This is the last page in the album which sums up with a Bible verse from Jeremiah 17:7-8: "Blessed is a man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves is always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."
A good reminder to the man I married 20 years ago & still deeply in love today!

This 2 pages are my favorite! I cut out windows to show all the families Tim & Tom met during their trip, some new & some old....
This is one of their favorite day at Central Coast, so I named it "STAR DAY"!

Tim inherit those taste buds from me...(I think that's the only thing he inherited from me!) & my sister Linda had a great time with him in accompanying her in tasting all the variety of food in the cosmopolitan Sydney cultures!

*More to come....

Funny Incidences

1:38 AM Edit This 0 Comments »
Eversince Daniel was diagnosed as having autism, we noted many funny & hilarious incidences he created over the years. Some were like nightmares to us then, but looking back, they can be hilarious too!

The Sweets

Daniel was able to recognise all the rainbow colours since aged 3 or 4. One day while at a hawker stall, Dad picked up his "must have" 4 colored sweets, red, orange, yellow & green. But to Dad's total confusion, Daniel went into a huge tantrum & insisted Dad put back the sweets into the caddy tub! Dad was sure he got the right colours, so what's up??????? Daniel threw in the sweets back into the tub & then pulled out the sweets in this order, RED, ORANGE, YELLOW AND THEN GREEN! Dad, you got the sweets out in the wrong order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thinking of You

It is often when night falls that we miss our loved ones when they are not around. The heart was embossed with Jeart dies & outlined with a silvery pen. The trees were cut from a whale punch & outlined in some parts to portray the reflection of the moonlight!

For all my dear friends who have crossed my paths in this life journey & have touched or helped me in one way or another. God has put you in my life for a purpose & I thank Him everytime I think of you... This poem is for you....

A Wise & True Friend is Someone Who ...

...Listens to your Pains & Sorrows,
Lends her Shoulders when Tears Overflows.
...Keeps Secrets that is Close to your Heart,
But Speaks with Love Truth that is Hard,
...Trusts & Shares
Despite Uncertainties & Snares.
...Prays Unceasingly for One Another,
Till we see God Changing us & Others!

Josephine Ting 2007

I Love you all but God Loves you even more...!!!
