Happy Valentines' Day

Happy Valentines' Day!
DH and I don't usually celebrate Valentines' Day as we find it terribly commercialised but yesterday (on the eve so it's still regular prices) he brought me to a jazz bar for the first time in my life. We like listening to jazz, so he thought live jazz would be wonderful! It was! The only thing was we don't really drink, and had no idea what to order, finally settled for a mocktail and something raspberry that tasted like cough syrup! lol
But better than that, I made a fabulous card for him with this layout which I printed out on tracing paper, and attached to the inside of the card. Can you tell it's in the shape of a heart? We had started taking pictures of ourselves by looking into a camera we held at arms length, because we hardly have pictures of the two of us on trips and the boys are still too young then. Well, these are a collection of such shots taken in HK, Singapore, US, Japan, Malaysia, I turned them into black and white to unite them. I love this layout and he did too! Can't wait to share it with you, scroll all the way down for the template link!

Today the scripture passage I read included Mark 1: 7 " where John the Baptist said of Jesus :" the throngs of whose I am not worthy to stoop down and untie." WOW. This really helps me to picture a glimpse of Jesus' Greatness and my unworthiness, and helps me appreciate a little better how great His love for me. May you know His love this day when the world celebrates love.

And I want to tell you of the blog of my new found friend Lynette, you must go check it out here . She does beautiful photo and digiscrapping art which she shares DAILY for FREE, and also shares beautiful words of inspiration and truth. What a dear she is! Thanks Lynette!

I'm behind in scrapping my project 365, but intend to catch up and will share more templates then! I will try to make more 365 templates too as requested!

Thanks to Rebecca who highlighted to me that the Shutterfly offer is only for CK books, well, since I got started, I'll still be hurrying to finish the remaining layouts of my 2008 photos. I'm so proud of myself I did the below layouts in less than one and a half hours each. Normally I take up to 3 hours, mostly spent on searching for the perfect background paper (!) and on arranging the photos and making the shadows, of course. How long do you normally take per layout?

These templates are now available in the store thanks for looking!


Download this heart shaped template HERE and I'm excited to see what you make from it! Email me with a copy (and indicate if you don't mind me showing it on my blog) to yindgs at yahoo dot com dot sg.

  2. Thank you! With the economy the way it is right now, I find myself not buying as much as I used to. The exception are the essentials that you can use on a variety of pages but still look new and that's exactly how I feel about your templates.

  20. It always seems to take me forever to get a layout done. It always takes a lot of time just to search my stash to find the right colored kit or papers for my pictures. I'll need to get it organized differently I think. Sometimes I get a layout done in just one session on the pc, but often I need more than just one. :(

    Thanks so much for that fun template. I love how you always get so many pictures to coordinate on one page.

  22. Wonderful template, once again. I loved the layout you did for dh. How sweet and thoughtful. And taking you to a jazz bar, how great is that. We used to have a small out-of-the way one here for years. I wish it still was. Your other layouts are so awe-inspiring. I always love to see what you do.

  31. My DH and I are the same way about Valentine's Day. With the exception here in the states (you may have these too, but I don't know) We have $1 stores... and they sell cards for 2 for $1 year round. So we bought each other 2 cards... One is always funny and then one is serious. And they have the big mylar balloons for $1 too. It was funny since I was at a church event that morning and came home and we had both made our separate runs to the Dollar Store while I was out. lol The only thing he did that I was surprised was that he bought me a precious moment statue (not at the dollar store of course... lol) And it was a little boy holding a Giant sucker that said Be Mine... I'm a Sucker for your Love. It was so sweet. All he got was a couple chocolates (he loves them more than any woman I know, lol) and a big kiss from me.

    Any who... sorry so long... I love the kit gift and the heart template!!!! TYSVM!!! Your layout is gorgeous in the B&W's with that pretty red background.

    Hugs & Blessings,
    Shawna

    Thank you for the template. The heart shape is very creative. And thank you for the kit. Yes, it is sugary sweet but also very lovely. I am visiting my 13 year old niece in NJ in April and will be sure to have this kit along to scrap with her. I just know she will love it and we will have some great together time!
