each individual is crafted unique—swap series

ria nirwana is hosting a swap gathering this weekend celebrating ali edwards' week in the life project with a group of indonesian scrapbookers. that was the week my asthma started to relapse, needless to say i abandoned the project.  i thought i was going to catch up when i feel better, it got worst and basically my life was in suspended animation until a few days ago. 

thank the good lord, i'm well now and ready to attend the gathering and haul 28 sets of handcrafted items from enlisted swappers.

these are what i made and hope everyone hearts what they get.

 zetti inspired slide frame

whimsical sunday best

pink lollipop journaling spot

 blue lollipop journaling spot

because i'm fairly new in the scene, i made a label to introduce myself and what i made for them.

originally, the idea was going to include be yourself atc—series of rather daring vintage ladies posing around.  as it flowed, the idea didn't come true. i still keep the each individual is crafted unique as a pun to the individual items.

each person will get one of these zetti inspired slide frames,

plus a whimsical sunday best,

plus this blue lollipop journaling spot,

or this pink lollipop journaling spot.

like this,

or perhaps this,

or this,

and maybe this or others.

i might have a couple extra sets.  if there is interest, i can give them away.  we'll see!

oh, i forgot to mention earlier that this gathering is also meant for ria to celebrate her 3rd blog-versary.  in the spirit, she's giving away some lovely stuffs, check them out for a chance to win.  of course i made her something which i naturally wouldn't post here just yet in case she reads this.

dressing up the blog

last night i bought my first fraternal digital kits from after five designs.   yay...!

i'm making small steps to dress up the blog a bit.  it's my first attempt and i'm not familiar with html and digital images; so i'm sure i'll make changes along the way.

so far i've got these:

layers of left over scrap materials

a shot of panoramic 7th hole, nirwana bali golf—amongst the most dramatic holes in world golf, playing from the tee to the fairway across the indian ocean. that picture was quite some time ago because i haven't been golfing for more than 2 years now.

materials are mostly prima and thickers.

so what do we do with those broken letters of thickers alphabets or leftover scrap of papers?

max' mr march pin up shooting session for groovy, here i use the leftover scrap of paper and materials from previous layouts. if you notice, i use 2 broken set of thickers.  i could also use a rubberstamp if i don't have enough letters. the bottom layer of frames is the packaging of prima embellishment, or i could layer it with more scrap papers.
