Scrapbook 08: Her Name Is

Finally completed the last "hanging" layout I have for princess. Have been working on this for ages and ages.. at least 2 weeks? Have had less and less time to scrap since I've been gearing up for work and of course once I started school it was totally no time. If I am a good girl this will be the last LO till the next holidays le. So many things to do at work! =(

This is the first photo-less layout done. Its meant to show the meaning of Sophie's name - which means Wisdom. How I wish there are chinese characters in scrapbook stuff (stickers, rub ons, etc) then I can do one for her Chinese name as well 沈颂恩.

Complete picture. The visible journalling reads
"Our precious Princess Sophie.. your name means "wisdom". Your daddy chose your name because we hope it will reflect your character as you grow. "for whoever finds wisdom finds life, and obtains favour from the Lord." Proverbs 8:35"

ROFL I realised you can see my school work behind!

There is hidden journaling too on the tag at the top of the page.. the back of the tag reads
" Precious Princess, 6th March 2008, you came and you changed our lives forever."

Front of tag. The heart brad was surprisingly cheap at $2plus for about 100pcs from Popular! Added the stick on crystals from pasar malam at AMK central (it was supposed to be for sticking on handphone kind). The lace flowers are also from a ribbon shop at AMK central. Was $1.80 for one yard which is like 60-70 flowers worth! So I "sapu" all the flower colours they had! Such an eclectic list of sources. There's more.. you will see at the bottom Ingredients list.. hehe..

Back of tag. Used a Hambly cutout. They look really good but limit the amount of text that can be written. =(

Close up of the ribbons on the side. Used some of Keqing's ribbons for this and it turns out really pretty. the eyelets are also hers as I borrowed her eyelet setter to experiment. I also used her needle hole maker to poke through the ribbon to set the flower brads into it. The silver charm is actually a handphone hanging thingy part of a wedding door gift (they give male and female one, of course I used the female one la =)

Close up of flower details on her name plate.

Come to think of it this LO has many "firsts" for me. Its the first time I have tried using so much buttons, first time with a "circle" shape dominating the LO, first time thought of using Bible verse in the jounalling, first one with a tag. Hehe.
