Rest & Relax

It's school holidays and time for some rest & relax! We're off to Malaysia tomorrow and will be back on Saturday, and may not get to go online, so if you email me or try to contact me, I'll respond when I get back.
On Friday night, dh and I went to catch some free Singapore Arts Festival fringe events. That was how our relationship started years ago, when we went to our first free Fringe events!! :) This time we caught this cute band from Korea (I'm sorry I don't know their name!) who were playing these upbeat Beatle era songs. The poor things were so good and everyone really enjoyed them. Then the lead drummer asked, "are you enjoying yourselves?" "Yes!" "Then why are you sitting down?" We all laughed. I guess being us we are a little shy and too self conscious to stand up and dance along, we had to laugh at ourselves, but still did not stand up! :) DH and I really enjoyed ourselves nevertheless, and I have it captured for my 365 album!

Completed two more layouts from Japan, the templates are in the store here. Thanks for looking!
This was actually a rainy day on which we could not get to any of the places we planned, and simply wandered around and had a really laid back kind of day.

And yes, it's our third time in Disney in three years, we can't have enought of it, I guess! It's a bit of an embarassing fact that dh and I have actually been to all five Disney properties in the world - I know, we ought to be shot...it wasn't planned. The earliest times we were backpacking in Europe and on a shoe string trip in California, before kids. I will attest that our first time in Disney we were so, so bowled over and enchanted, more than our kids are at their first time, I believe. Our generation could appreciate things more, I think, because we grew up having so much less.... can you tell we're still enchanted?

And two more 365 layouts!! This one is from a template by Mandagirl Creations - I love it so much I kept her color scheme and drawn stitches! You can get it from her blog here! Tell her I sent ya!

Freebies Announcement! (from my last post in case you did not see it)
I had forgotten to announce here that my folder on FileFront where I shared all my earlier free templates (template 36 and before) has been shut down due to inactivity. File Front wrote to me a week ago, and I've decided to let it be shut down. I took a look and most of the templates had been downloaded more than 2500 times! Hope you understand that I won't be posting them up again somewhere else. Too much work! :) I might put them all in a pack for a nominal sum in the store later on when I find the time. In the mean time, pls enjoy all the later freebies on 4 shared and Box net!

Actually I'm deciding whether to continue to share on Box Net (monthly fee required) or go back to 4 shared. Please download or tell your friends to download in the mean time!

Thank you for your interest and for joining me in this great scrapping hobby :)

  4. oh, how cool to have been to all 5 Disney parks! That's my goal! We hope to go to Hong Kong when we take the girls to see China. I'm trying to figure a way to squeeze Tokyo in too! LOL! We are annual pass holders for the Florida Disney so we go a LOT! But it helps that my Mom only lives 12 miles away. We're headed there in 3 days. Have a great vacation and thanks for another great template!

  5. Hi Yin! Thanks for your kind comments on my blog!

    Todd and I spent Christmas 2007 at Disneyland and we loved it. I think no matter how old you are, you can still enjoy the magic of Disney.

    Love your colorful photos and layouts. Great Project 365 layouts. I need to catch up with mine!

  6. What great layouts. We love Disney too and managed to make it there 3 times in a row (October 2005, January 2006 and May 2006), so you don't have to feel you are obsessive or at least alone in the obsession.

    I loved the layouts of Japan. My daughter-in-law is from Osaka and I always enjoy seeing the pictures she sends of her home country.

  20. Thank you so much for the template! I really like box.net, but I completely understand if you shut it down due to the fees. We'll just use 4share then. =)

    I agree with you that children today doesn't appriciate the small things like we did. But maybe my parents would say the same about me...

  21. Thank you so much for your templates. I just got back from Disney and was just at a loss as to how to lay things out. I had run out ideas and did not want to use the ones provided by Shutterfly, etc. Your templates are a breath of fresh air for me. Thank you so very much! I truly appreciate your work!
