Our Beautiful World 65 ~ River

This week at

Manuela picked the word


Hmmm..... my favorite river?

La Seine

is there another river more romantic then this one?

and on top of that, we have the famous love lock bridge, where lovers "lock" their love for each other and toss the key into the RIVER

of course then we have the blue daube..... I wasn't too impressed with the part in Vienna though..

Ahhh.... river, river, how could I not mention the Charles bridge over Vltava river in Prague?

last but not least, another of my favorite, the Hudson..... (our backdrop)

we walked by the Hudson river numerous time during our 8 years in NYC. 

I better stop here.... I love the water, river, stream, lakes, ocean and I have tons of photo if I continue to dig into my folder....

Once upon a time.....

The Challenge:

When I see this mood Board, I know I NEED to play along...

I love pixies, I love fairy tales, I love books, especially books with covers like that, LOL!
And as a mom, I can't even count how many thousands times we start the story this way "Once upon a time....." 

Here's my layout inspired by the pixie and books, my children are the perfect model for the layout with such a theme.

no pixie can go without a splash of glitters...

I did a lot of fuzzy cutting, make a few handmade flowers, it took me 3 days  to complete this, but I love the result.

Jack and the beanstalk is one of my favorite story when I was little, so I must have a growing plant growing tall on my layout too...

Project Life 2014 ~ August 1 - 21

Project Life 2014


For PL August, I was inspired by this journal card from PTI

so I decided to go with that color scheme

August 4

New top - envelope punch box, I just LOVE it!

August 6

We have 2 visitors from San Jose, as president of the Singapore Club here in Las Vegas, we took them out for dinner.

August 9

is Singapore National day, Happy Birthday Singapore!!!!

We also went to Dennis Miller show that night, not a big fan! : (

August 10

SAN (Singapore Association of Nevada) celebrated our National Day on August 10th, that's the picture of the Singapore Girls there, most of us dress in red/white outfit, that's the color of our national flag

August 16

We went to the Don Rickers show, well, this one is better! : )

August 18

We drive to Monterey today, leaving Papi with our neighbor Diane : (

sad face...

this time, we didn't keep him in the laundry room when we are away, we just leave the whole house to him and Diane will come in to check twice a day. I have a Papi cam facing the laundry room, although I can't see him in the cam this time when we travel, but I am happy for him that he can be running free in the house instead of keeping him in a small space.

August 19

At Monterey...... after breakfast at a Paris Bakery near our hotel, we went for a walk by the water, and then DH go play golf in the afternoon, I rest a bit at the hotel and then to the farmer's market at 5 PM

 found the cutest stall at the market

August 20

Driving to San Jose today, it is work day for DH, I just stay at the hotel cafe to work on my laptop.

We arrived at San Francisco in the evening, dinner 
is at Peneng Garden in China Town, they have the Singapore chilli crab, my husband claimed it is better then those in Singapore!

August 21

Whenever we go to San Francisco, we never miss Hog Island at Ferry Building, their clam chowder is so yummy

and the bread too.... I wish I could bake bread like this

this time we try 2 new things - sea salt anchovy and potato chips with salt and pepper, yummy as well!

Happy weekend my friends!
