Garden Photos

It's been C.R.A.Z.Y.B.U.S.Y at work. No time for crafts or scrapping of late but here are some shots taken of our vegetable garden about a month ago.
Ladybugs living in our garden. J loves them to bits!

I have no idea what these bugs are, but they don't move. Update: I finally found out that these guys are actually baby ladybugs! Silly me!
'Misai Kuching'.
Errr.... celery?
'Sio Pak Choy'

Spinach flowers grow close to the plant stem.

Megablocks Mickey & Friends

Let me warn you that this will take LOTS of imagination. These little Megablocks structures are done by J - they are supposed to Megablocks versions of the little figurines next to them. The one at the bottom right corner is supposed to be Daisy Duck (no figurine of Daisy). Imagine.

Love the Vintage Moon collection from Pink Paislee and immediately got inspired to scrap these photos which were taken during Chinese New Year eve reunion dinner last year. I had been saving them until I could get the 'right' papers to scrap them, so finally, they are done.

Thanks to my BIL, Sam for taking these cute photos of J and cousin N. I'd love to say that they're the bestest cousins, but I guess it's more accurate to say that they have this love-hate relationship going ... but, it definitely has improved since the time these photos were taken. N has a 'special' name he calls J, "Eska" ... it's really cute, but I guess details of that deserves another scrapbook page of its own. Soon. I hope.
Close-ups - my favourite Prima flowers on a journal tag overlapping a frame, but I just can't seem to leave things as they are so they got distressed, Stickled and bling-ed.
7-Gypsies gaffer tapes ... I lurve!

Vegetable Garden Update

Some time ago, I had posted photos of our container vegetable garden, well, some of the plants have since bloomed, been consumed and/or replanted. So here's an update of what has happened.

Baby spinach seedlings which have newly sprouted.

We replanted our longbean plants too as the old one started deteriorating.

Our grape-tomatoes (if that's indeed the real name for it) finally ripening. But the plant might need replacing soon as it seems to be infested by some cottony-looking insects.

Close-up of the tomatoes. Yes. They are seriously THAT yummy looking! And they taste as good as they look too. I'm a little obssessed with the tomatoes, can you tell?

ATC ~ Journey

Had messy fun with this one. Layers of acrylic and crackled paint, Perfect Pearls, stamping as well as using Beadazzles.

Best Buds

My 2 favourite girls ... this makes me happy!

They are constantly like that - under the dining table, rolling on the floor ... mainly J terrorizing Bubbles. Sigh!

Potpourri Bottle

Did a little tutorial for a feature over at Artz de Scrap and loved the ladies' takes on it!

Transformation from empty used bottle to this ...
... then finally this!
