So much going on!

The past week has been quite exciting for us. Singapore celebrated our 45th National Day (we became an independent nation 45 years ago on 9th August), and there was grand celebration, the fireworks of which was especially spectacular, you can see it on youtube here. We celebrated the day with our dear friends the Wong and Ho families with a picnic at the beach, and lots of photos to scrap, the most memorable of which is this  - the boy waving at our national flag is Jared :) the one staring at the camera is Ryan :)

From last saturday, Singapore is having the priviledge of hosting the first-ever Inaugural Youth Olympic Games! The opening ceremony was performed on a floating platform, we missed it on TV but most of it can be seen here. Young atheletes aged 14 to 18 from 204 countries are here in Singapore! Isn't that something? We are having a field time watchging all the games on TV and are hoping to catch some live.

On the designing front, I am very proud and honored to announce that Yin Designs is being featured on Shutterfly Celebrations Blog!!! Do check it out! I have made so many photobooks with shutterfly and loved them all, this is quite perfect ! :)

Have finally completed a few more layouts from last year's trip to Hokkaido, here are 5 layouts all from 2 amazing hours we spent at the Onuma quasi-national park - breathtakinglly beautiful - especially for us tropical folks for whom this is about the day 3 of our lives where we've seen snow.... i can't even describe it, but perhaps these layouts and photos will. :)




And you can find the download for this 12x12 template at the bottom of this post!

Last but not least,
This is now available as part of Template Pack 7 in the store. Thanks for your interest!

  19. Hello Yin: I love your scrapbook pages. Too many people today make the pages about the art instead of keeping the focus on the beautiful pictures. They use one little photo and it's practically hidden by the doodles and other elements. Don't get me wrong - your layouts are beautiful art, but the pictures and journaling are the main focus. Great job! Mary Lou
