I just wanted to make a layout for us, for him, was feeling very low since both of us are miles apart...while thinking of all the things positive..I got this layout in my head..took me 1 hour to make...who says digiscrapping saves just saves the mess...but I loved making it.

I think both of us need some more pictures with each other, I'm tired of still scrapping with my engagement pics...That is not even how I look like in real life...maybe reel life...heheh!

The journaling reads " Happyness is being with you, being in your arms, Being tickled breathless, matching my wits against yours, endless conversations, your need to protect me, the need to crack dirty jokes at the drop of a hat..Knowing I have a lifetime of laughter and love with you around me, Looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you...That's what Happyness is"

Feeling good now!!!

ETA- Angelo of Kreativ Kristin also gave me this award on her blog..Thanks a million...She's from Croatia

I had been nominated for this award a long time back..Sorry JoAnna for posting it so late..but Thanks a million nevertheless.

That was so so sweet of her.. here are the rules ( never mind the fact that I'm never a sticker for rules)

The rules are:

2. Only 5 people allowed to be nominated;
3. 4 of the 5 have to dedicated followers of your blog;
4. 1 is to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world;
5. You must link back to whomever gave you the award.

Most of my blogging friends live in another part of the there goes one rule out of the book mrgreen

Here are some of the people I would love to pass this on to..

There you go..Thanks JoAnna.

Now for my newest creation. I brought this journal to keep a track of all things related to the wedding. The florist, the caterer and etc...and what do I do.......sit till 2 am and decorate it.

And when H stopped by for a day, he labels it "my dirty scrapbook" He still can't get it, why I had the need to decorate a perfectly new book! How do I convince this man from the stone age that I like doing this stuff and it looks prettier than the blank black cover it had????

Jan Scholl at The Paper Tango had sent me some Autum Leaves clear stamps as a part of her blog candy..And they've been used here. I love the heart stamp..Its so lovely. Thanks Jan.

ETA: I finally found the little birdie I'd been eyeing on everyone's blog. I found it in a digital format..and so I printed it out..and glued it to my book..I wanted a branch or a twig in the little birdie's beak, I didn't have any, so used a digital brush.. ( mind you the brush is only on the photo, its not there IRL). It has totally become a hybrid project lol- paper, digital birdie, and photoshop brush!!! Here's how the project looks now..

Ps.. Can someone help me how to remove the glare from the glossy photo using PS? I tried everything but as you can see it didn't work!!

Supplies Paper- Floral pack (DCWV), pink CS,
Stamps-autum leaves, Watercolor crayons, Brilliance dew drop graphite ink.
The digichickie is from Annie at Raspberry Road Designs..Thank you made my day

Another Altered Notebok

I've been on a roll...I loved altering the previous notebook so much, that I decided to do another one for a friend. This time I took the scary step of removing the spiral and then attaching the papers and then re-attaching the spiral binding. Scary part ... but its was not that bad..

There's nothing much to it. Also made a co-ordinating pen to go with it. This is going to be such a novelty..since no one, and I mean not many literally decorate pens.. Here's the close up of the stamp...

Did some doodling on the edges with white signo pen, and some faux stitching around the edges of the notebook.
Hope the recipient likes it.

Supplies- DP by DCWV black and white stack, Faber-Castell watercolor pencils
Brilliance Graphite black ink, watercolor paper

Word art layout

I needed a quote to put on my page..and guess what I find. A word art from Bethany..Here is here original quote and here's my version of it.

I sometimes find that I need my mess around me to make it feel like a home, or my own room. I feel if its too clean, it seems sanitized, like someone else's house.

I don't know if i'm alone in this dilemma or is there someone out there who shares this weird trait with me. If you are, you're not alone!!! surprised

There is one more quote that I love, and its an excuse for me to make more mess and refuse to clean up..I'll try my first attempt at creating a word art and uploading it for you!

If I can't Bethany to the rescue!! mrgreen

There are lot of brushes I've used, mostly by the Greenbulb Gang Coffee stains brush.
some from Obsidian Dawn the glitters on the word room..
unfortunately I can't find the source for the paper.
frame- Franziska Altmann
Vector foliage brush-no idea from where!
Font-House - Smargana
Happy - Gigi
