Weekend Crop at SK

Scrappin Kids (SK) had once again organized a weekend online crop. The last time I joined was during the National Scrapbooking Day for SK's Ultimate Scrapper Contest where I emerged second to my friend, Issa who was awarded the title. That was around three months ago.

The online crop included a challenge and a tutorial by one of SK's Resident Designer, Wati.

For the challenge, we were asked to create a layout inspired by the Singapore's flag since it was Singapore's National Day yesterday. Here is what I came up with:

I lifted the colors of the Singapore flag - red and white but I added black for contrast. I also included some stars in my layout.

The one in the photo is my eldest Jigs who is 13 years old and in First Year HS.

Here is my journaling:

I still do not understand why you avoid photo opportunities. It just saddnes me that I am not able to document significant events or even everyday moments. Last night was your first Acquintance Party ever now that you are on your first year in highschool. I asked you if I could take your photo...once, twice, thrice, I couldn't remember how many times but all I got for an answer was a NO! I hope it will be a YES next time.

For the tutorial, Wati demostrated how to make a pop-up mini album. Here's my take:

The album's cover:

The inside pages:

When we met 19 years ago, we promised that we'd be together foever. Now after years of being together, that promise still holds true. We've been through a lot of up's and down's in our 13 years of marriage but we're still here. I thank God for that!

There are so many things I'd like to tell you. For a time (almost 10 yesrs, that is), we were separated by fate. God reunited us and allowerd use to be together for 1 year and 7 months - straight after you decides to resign from SPIMACO.But life is really hard these days that you have to try your luck again in Saudi Arabia. Things happened so fast and one day I woke up, you were already there.

We didn't have a chance to have a heart to heart talf before you left for your job in Saudi Arabia. I forgot to tell you how thankful I am that I am your wife and that you are the father of my children. I thank God for giving me someone who is kind-hearted, prayerful and a good provider. Thank you for giving us the best that you could give. I'd like you to know how much I appreciate you.

Forgive me too for all the heartaches and headaches I might have caused you. I know I can be mean sometimes. So sorry for giving you "nags instead of hugs", "not so nice words instead of sweet kisses and for always finding faults instead of appreciating your good traits. I promise to make up for all these shortcomings. Best of all, I'd like to tell you and make known to the world that I LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT ALWAYS AND IN ALL WAYS.

The entire album, opened:
