It's my party and I'll fly if I want to...

The title came to me out of the blue and I really quite like it. You'll find out soon enough what it's about. :)

Yesterday was my birthday (don't ask) and I had such a great time I decided I had to update the blog immediately to give you some gift and maybe brighten up someone's day a wee bit as well. Obviously "immediately" turns into 24 hours afterwards but you know that's not too bad considering my blog-updating history. LOL

First a few recent layouts to share!

**********

I just LOVE those word arts in Val C. Designs' new kit - Fly High. (You can choose to purchase the bundle or WA, papers, and elements separately.) They are so inspiring and make you wanna start scrapping the moment you laid eyes on them. Well, that's what I did!

It was so much fun layering  and blending all the masks, word arts, stamps, textures, etc., on the page and came up with just an easy-looking one accentuating Neill's mesmerizing eyes. I think I'll be using the design as the cover page of our family 2012 calendar. 


**********

These following layouts are from Dunia Designs' templates and kits. For the first one I used one of her latest template set Embrace Simplicity vol. 3 with the Three Little Birds kit. It's a RAK for my close friend PaMam. The sweet and tender photos are from a Thai Mother's Day event at her son Sinat's school.

Now for this one below. The journaling says it all. ;)


May 5, 2011: This friendly (?) game of foosball was the perfect ending
to Neill's first sleepover at Auntie Dana's house in Beirut.
Knowing that he sometimes sleepwalks, 
Sasha generously let Neill take the bottom bunk. 
He had a great time playing with her, enjoyed Baka's food immensely, 
and also behaved perfectly the whole time. 
Tears were shed when they had to say goodbye
and, of course, Neill couldn't wait to do it all again!





Edited: Great, great news for Dunia's fans!!! From September 15 - 20, ALL her products  - old or new releases - are 30% off!!! Don't miss this chance. Visit her MScraps or DigiScrappersBrasil stores today!

Thanks for sticking with me till the end! I've modified an old layout and turned it into a template for you. Hope you like it!
Edited to add: Just noticed that the layout that I based this template on was posted in galleries exactly one year ago! It also got a GSO at DigiShopTalk forum. I didn't post it at first because it doesn't really look a lot like the template anymore after the modification. But then I thought maybe it would show you an alternative way of using the template. So here it is!
