10: this is: Happiness / 001 I Love Your House

Here goes Sophie's #10 scrapbook page. 10 down, 10 more to go to fill up her lovely little album.. and its already bursted full and can't be closed! Cos I am crazy over texture and always have stuff that pops out of the page (i heart mounting tape!) Oops.. I guess I need to find a post extender for this album le. =P

This pic was taken some time ago one morning when she was in a very good mood. She is a morning baby and always like to laugh and smile. She was being held in my MIL's arms (one of her favourite places to be!) and G took a series of shots. Managed to think of an LO to scrap this first one into. I got my inspiration from this LO:
(from autumn leaves website - one of my *heart!* suppliers)

here is my take:

Its so pinky isn't it?? I'm trying to use up the pinky papers I have from my Melissa Frances SB kit. hehe. Used a pink checked to mat the photo and a Heidi Grace paper as the 8 x 8.

Tried decoupage for the first time on the tag - though I didn't have enough scrap pieces of paper to cover the tag, so I used a KCK ribbon (which I had no idea how to use initially!) to wrap the other 1/2 of it. Actually turned out not bad! But its so thick I had to mount the photo on double layer of mounting tape |||-_- just to get the tag to fit underneath.

I think the lace flowers are turning out to be my fave SB embellishment so far. They appeared on every page I scrap since buying them! hehe. Should go and get more..

Back of tag. My chicken scratches reads: "Laughing and cooing in grandma's arms. Always so easy to make you smile.. our happy baby. June 2008"
Mm, seems like I am fascinated by tags recently. Done 3 so far on all past 3 of Sophie's layouts. Hehe.

Also did my very first non-baby layout on a 12x12 page! Dedicated it to my church, CHC.
Words at top of page read, "I love your house, its where your glory dwells", and the words at the bottom reads "I love the atmosphere at Jurong West church hall. So homely and so anointed. Indeed the glory dwells there! How I miss Your house. Its where people come, into Your love, yes I'm going to tell the world - How awesome is this place!"

Those of you in CHC long enough will recognise the pictures.. they are part of a 3 postcard series that was given out when we first shifted into JW> yeah boy they are THAT old. hehe. I'm slowly digging out my old stuff to put into SB. The "queue" line is very long le.. I wanna scrap on my 2 BFF, my dog, my "history" with G, my ex-students, my own younger photos, my overseas trips, etc etc etc. Gosh!!
