{ Just arrived } product is being uploaded!

It is awesome. I can't wait to rip apart the package just arrived from My Mind's eye. It is hard not to fall in love with their laundry line. I know I know....I fell in love with everything esp pinky stuff. But hey, this is PINK and GLITTERY! Totally took my breath away. Oh! Not to mention their stamps are comparatively cheaper. So it is all uploaded on BearyBox's new arrival category now and grab it before it is gone!

It is amazing how time flies. It was just summer and now wherever I go I see Christmas stuffs on sale. It is fun to look at although they sell almost the same thing over and over again over the years. For those of you who has not stock up Christmas scrapbook materials, you better do it now or else it will be too late to complete those handmade cards and albums you have been thinking about. You might find something you like here.

So, I believe many of you guys have visited my new fabulous designers, come back again and see their first design. Now, I wanna share this layout with you guys I made earlier on featuring a cute little girl in red. I like this layout with the fun alpha and glitter flowers. There’s also some birds camouflaged among those flowers. See if you can spot them all!

Super Saturday!

Woke up fresh and in high spirits today as we are heading towards Hollywood Blvd! What is better than a beautiful sunny warm day walking along Walk of Fame and some spare time for shopping?! So I got some nice lingerie from Victoria secret and 2 tickets to Kathy Griffin show this coming December...I am actually quite excited as I love to see her talk show on TV and this time I actually get to see her in person! Well, I mean tiny Kathy Griffin - as our seats are on the middle row...

Next week will be an interesting week as more products from My mind's eye, Jenni Bowlin and Melissa frances will be flocking into Bearybox! So stay tune (in Ceasar Milan's tone! LOL)

So, I wanna share this layout with you guys....It is a photo of my baby sleeping like a teddy bear when she was 4 months old. Now she is not as cute :) Also, I am working on learning how to take nicer layout photos so pardon me with the blinding flash you see here :)

{ Happiness is }

What does happiness means to you?

Maybe a photo of four kids, some in bikini by the pool is pretty happy to look at :) except they look kinda awkward there...hehe

This is a very simple layout with different kind of stitching around the photo creating a frame outline replacing the use of papers which I normally use to create layers in a layout. This is actually a challenge layout I made for
scrappy hours, you guys can go and participate just for fun!

I have....

Been cleaning the house all day especially my clearing scrapping station. As I am sorting out my materials I wonder if other scrapper has the same problem as me - the scrapping station is always messy! All the time I feel like I don't have enough paper or embellishments to play with but then when I clean up my space, interesting things will appear out of no where! I guess I need a solution to end this!
Anyway, I want to share this layout with you guys. I totally love this layout. It is a beautifull photo of my mother-in-law and I love how the color match the transparent overlay perfectly.

Happy World Card Making Day!

Happy World card Making Day everyone!

Today in Ventura is cold and wet. Finally, Mr. Sunshine takes a day off after months of giving us warm. Lovie has been snuggling and tagging along me all day today. Being a spring baby as she is, she has lots to learn about winter.

Whether I like it or not, weather is getting colder so it is time to get more socks! I wonder Lovie will like to wear it to keep her rubber paw warm ^__^

As usual, some card designs for you guys. Hope it will give you some ideas for your next project.

New Kit for the Month!

It took me barely an hour to finish this Halloween door hanging sign from the October Monthly Kit from . In fact it is kind of easy. While I am working on this project I am thinking how excited I will be when all the dressed-up kids come ringing at our house door on Halloween day ^_^ Earlier Justin was saying that he would make a cow suit for Lovie (our puppy) on that day and I am thinking to name her Miu Miu (same name as my harvest moon cows) specially for her on that day! *And we actually bought the cow fabric*

So, this sign will be outside our from door to lure all innocent cute kids to come into our house! Theehehe...

If you are interested. you can purchase the materials I used at reduced price from this month monthly kit here. I also add some platinum glitter around the eye and mouth of the evil house to make them look scarier!
