Here's the table that I need to get rid of. It's actually a real hardwood table that's gonna last you a lifetime but it's just occupying too much space in the room - this will be replaced by the 3x4 cube display rack. And all those wall hangings are gone! This time I want my space clean and unclattered! So most will be hidden! :)
This black container of mixes of SB stuff just has to go too - will be replaced by a shoe cabinet. I loved it but I just hate that I see everything in the open and all the clutter makes me crazy.
So, next up will be my "new room" that I've been working on. Hopefully I finish sorting, packing and labelling everything tomorrow. I actually have to because my DT album assignment is still a work in progress and it got stalled because of this obsession of mine!

Anyway, another beginning of the week - I can't believe there's only 60+ or so days to go before Christmas! Ok, i'm drifting away again from what I wanted to post... :)
I'm so glad to be part of the Artz de Scrap Team and for this month, I am their featured inspirational scrapper. I created a special and fun altered project for my stint. It's a tic tac toe game box!
My husband and I have already played with this and this game box currently rests in our scenter table (sala). Hope you can try this challenge out. Head on over at Artz de Scrap to check out the tutorial on how this game box was constructed.

I cut up some webster's pages and overlapped that with the picture.
I used one of the acetate frames from Hambly.
I used 4 different papers from BG Stella Ruby collection. One for the background, the foreground of the pictures, matting of the pictures and the cut flowers on each middle side.
This is a fabric pocket that I had for a long time now and i squeezed in the tag I made inside. I distressed the fabric a bit with distress inks then applied crackle paint and sticles and then stamped the bird on top. I had fund doing this.
Lastly, this is the card I made from the scraps of the 4 papers from the same collection. I had a chance to use my new stamp from Inkadinkado. :)
I've one more post coming! :)

I'm so glad Gio decided to go. He changed his mind about a month prior to the trip and we even had a bit of trouble with the visa application requirements because we had too little time. But I'm so glad that's over and that the trip's already tomorrow!
We're both so excited because this is our first trip that includes an official tour. We normally just plan our own itinerary but since we heard that there are a few chinese there that can speak fluent english, we decided to just get the package tour.
Duration: Oct 8 -11, 2009
Hotel: Double Tree by Hilton
(We're taking PAL and I'm glad we are)
Here's our itinerary
Temple of Heaven, China National Grand Theater, Acrobatic show after dinner
Tian’men Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace (with dragon boat ride), Beijing Zoo & Qianmen Da Zhan Lan Commercial District
Badaling Great Wall (w/cable car), afternoon tour the Olympic Village – Bird’s Nest, Water Cube & shopping at Yaxiu or Xiushui Marke
Free Time - although our flight leaves early so we will barely have free time :)
SO EXCITED! A lot more photos coming to scrap about!

How often does it happen to you that while you are at a children's party and you get another invitation at the same time? Well that's when you know you REALLY ARE GETTING OLD. Oh well, time flies so fast indeed. It wasn't so long ago when you were getting texts from friends inviting you to debut parties, then to graduation parties then to afterwork gimmicks and now children's birthday parties. I guess that's how you know....
He said all he could see was CHEEKS! hehehe...
