A scrapping weekend

Long gone are the weekends whereby I will go out to shopping mall with hubby or friends and here comes a new hobby that I embraces with love. A hobby that doesn't requre spending money and yet very satisfying and rewarding. My new hobby, introduced by my school friend, Jazzmint ( I know her by other name then :p ) is the all new digital scrapbooking. Well, I must say, it's one way for me to kill time and challenge myself with some nice layout.

All I need is a pc that is installed with Photoshop or any photo editing softwares and internet, of course *wink* to download my freebies. Since I am already addicted with pretty illustration such as Stila's graphic (their brochure is full of pretty graphic generated girls), and has laid my hand in doing some for my wedding album (too kiam siap to pay additional money for wedding photos I dun really like, I decided to do my own design and include to the wedding album to add a touch of personality), scrapping is not hard to grasp (coz I always got a graphic designer bro to bug *LOL*).

So, last weekend I did 5 scraps & out of that 5, 3 were of my wedding snapshot. If I can manage to scrap 20 or more, I can compile it for Shutterfly. I can't get enuf of my oh so pretty wedding photos *ke ke ke ke* coz I really look so pretty in my wedding gown (come on, every bride is the most beautiful girl , u know). The best part of scrapping is, you can do what ever you like with the photos you have in hand. Can turn a not so interesting picture into an art *giggle*.

Here's 1 of the scrap I did on Sunday morning (woke up late & wrong side of the bed, so didnt go church, hence this scrap was born that morning). I love this photo alot ;) and with digital scrapbooking, I enhance it more with pretty papers & meanigful words.

So, for people who are interested in trying their hand on digital scrapping, you can visit some of the site at the side bar. These are the site that I frequent most for some freebies and inspiration. You also would want to go to Jazzmint's blog for some photoshop & scrapping guide that she blog not so long ago and also all her lovely scraps.

Warning : You might get addicted and glued to the pc and developed upper shoulder ache or tingling sensation on your hand *LOL*

It's so nice for me to have found this blog of yours, it's so interesting. I sure hope and wish that you take courage enough to pay me a visit in my PALAVROSSAVRVS REX!, and plus get some surprise. My blog is also so cool! Don't think for a minute that my invitation is spam and I'm a spammer. I'm only searching for a public that may like or love what I write.

Feel free off course to comment as you wish and remember: don't take it wrong, don't think that this visitation I make is a matter of more audiences for my own blogg. No. It's a matter of making universal, realy universal, all this question of bloggs, all the essential causes that bring us all together by visiting and loving one another.

You must not feel obliged to come and visit me. An invitation is not an intimation. Also know that if you click on one of my ads I'm promised to earn a couple of cents for that: I would feel happy and rewarded (because I realy need it!!!) if you did click it, but once again you're totaly free to do what ever you want. I, for instance, choose immediatly to click on one of your ads, in case you have them. To do so or not, that's the whole beauty of it all, however, blogocitizens must unite also by clicking-help eachother when we know cybermegacorporations profit from our own selfishness regarding to that simple click.

I think it's to UNITE MANKIND that we became bloggers! Don't see language as an obstacle but as a challenge (though you can use the translater BabelFish at the bottom of my page!) and think for a minute if I and the rest of the world are not expecting something like a broad cumplicity. Remenber that pictures talk also. Open your heart and come along!!!!!
