My new baby!!!!

Making Memories Slice Elite...and it is in pink!!!!

I'm so excited and so is Grace.....she insisted we try the designs yesterday and today we tried another design card.....

Yeah...my parents just came back from their 2-month holiday from the United States(visiting my sister and their grandson there) and they help me carry this precious back...together with additional design cards and some border punches....boy, I sure saved a lot in shipping......at least 50% lesser....whoa.....

Non-crafters must be wondering what this is......it is a digital die-cutting machine which I had been eyeing for sometime now....and when my parents decided to go to the US, I just had to grab the opportunity to buy it.....children at church will be expecting some cool new die-cut shapes to use in their craft work....and I can foresee Grace making request to use it everyday.....

Here are photos of the stuff that my parents brought home for me and the girls from the US....

Little girl on the move

Well, the title tells it all.....my little girl, Elise is now officially walking....she'd been holding on to our hands for a few weeks now...and sometimes when she'd forgotten to be afraid, she did managed to walked a few steps unassisted...but once she remembered, almost every time she will fall...

On Thursday, she finally walked a few more steps....but still needed motivation and help....she will still asked for our hands to hold her...but when forced to...she will walk the few steps herself....on Friday she perfected her walk a little more...and tonight, while daddy was having puzzle time with big sister...little sister walked from the shoe cabinet to where daddy is at...picked up a piece of puzzle and walked back to the shoe cabinet to "post" the puzzle piece...the distance is about 3 feet...

Here's a video of her doing her new found favorite play..."posting" books or whatever that fits through the ventilation holes on the shoe cabinet and her new found skill...walking...

The Flower Girl

3 years ago, when she was merely 2 years 1 month old, she walked down the aisle (as a flower girl) bravely.....though she needed reminder along the way...and though she needed to be bribed with marshmallow.....I was so so proud of my baby girl......
Her "new style" of sprinkling confetti, gave the wedding guests a good laugh and bringwarmth to my heart....
3 years later....again she walked down the aisle (as a flower girl)...not needing reminder, not needing marshmallow.....but elegantly and a good lead to the ring bearer and bride's maid whom was not able to attend the rehearsal.....I was also very proud of her....this time round...a young lady....
(I've yet to have the professional photos...these are my iPhone photos)

Wedding Mini Album Part 1

Well, again I neglected my blog....Grace was off school for a week and Moses was also off work for a week....so there's a lot of outing during this week, plus the wedding of our dear brother and sister (Ee Hong & Jenny) in Christ yesterday....

Remember I mentioned on the wedding mini albums that I made? Well, now that the bride had seen it and most of the wedding guests have seen it....I can now post it here.....

Today, I will post one of the 2 albums...."Defining Moment 8.6.2011"...these features selected ROM photos of the newly wed....

For this album....it was pretty easy to put together....I started with stamping all the pages with random background stamps ( which I don't have plenty...) then inking it with Tim Holtz distress inks to the colors that match the photos....then I put in the photos and embellishments....and viola....

I also lightly decorated a purchased gift box to keep the album...
