PTI Make it Monday #232 ~ Layered Stamping on Kraft

The Challenge:

I also like using kraft, so this is fun for me...

however, I didn't really get it perfectly done....

after I stamped the word "Hugs", I did a bit of fussy cutting just to show the patterned paper from the inside (sort of)

Share Handmade Kindness Week 4 and MFT Color Challenge 33

When I do my regular web browsing this morning, I realized that I will miss the challenge deadline for MFT color challenge 33 if I let this post go on pre-scheduled time, so..... I am posting my card for

and combine it with.....

here's the color palette for MFT color challenge 33

this card is going to my blog friend Dawn.....

Dawn and I met "online", and we were going to be penpal but the plan didn't carry out as we are both busy.....

but we visit each other's blog every now and then and we also share the same love for project life journaling....

so my card to Dawn is also going along with some PL goodies, which we also talked about exchanging some time ago but didn't carry out the plan.

so Dawn, I hope you don't read this post before the goodies arrived, LOL!

Project Life 2015 ~ October 1 to 4

Project Life 2015

October 3
Clare and Jared came home with their friend Catherine, it seems like our "tradition" when the Clare is back home is to go to Korean BBQ, she just loves it. We did try a new place this time.

I have to admit I didn't keep my promise, when I started project life this year, I tell myself not to buy any NEW stuff because I have boxes and boxes of journaling cards, sorry..... I did, this October, new journaling goodies I am using.

after dinner, we went to the strip for a walk.....
to see the wonderful Bellagio musical fountain

I have to say, looking back at this photo of Paris hotel makes me sad....

Still thinking of you Dear Paris! (big sigh.......)

and then we took the kids to Serendipity for their famous frozen hot chocolate

October 4
I make french toast and corn muffins for breakfast.

In the afternoon, we decided to go for a picnic at Bonny Spring Park, the plan was to go get two rotisserie chickens and a few sides, but the plan didn't carry out well, the store was out of chicken and we drive to Pollo Loco to get few boxes of chicken, by then, the sky got really dark and I am afraid we are running out of day light, so instead of going to Bonny Spring, which we are not familiar and further away, we stop at Red Rock Canyon instead.

although it was windy, cold and even drizzle a little, it didn't spoilt the fun

I brought along my corn muffins for dessert

it was cold so everybody is fighting for that fur coat

it turn out to be a perfect picnic after all

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect

It means you've decided to look beyond the imperfections....

author - unknown

the kids like goofing around and take funny selfies

well, since this post is picture heavy, I better post the rest of October another day!

Thanks for sticking around!
