Vintage Bride & Other Updates!

Hey hey!! Hope your weekend has been good. I always have lots of fun during weekends with Mr. Handsome :) We will catch up on movies and this week we got to watch "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". It was hilarious! Up to date we have watch close to 300 movies (or maybe more) from the day we dated till we got married. Yes, we're movie freaks!! LOL!! Tell you something, Mr.Handsome is a very sentimental guy, he kept every single movie tickets. Yes, from our courting days till this day, he is such a keeper!!

Ok I am back to show you a class I taught at my LSS couple months back. It's the "Vintage Bride" class at Papier. In the class, we played with distress ink, mist and more distressing. We also used sanding block & edge distresser to give more distressing look!! Of course, laces & pearl trims are a must for vintage + shabby chic look! We used the Making Memories "Vintage Findings" collection! One of my fav collection :)

In real life, you'll see that this layout is more shimmery and glittery but unfortunately I can't really capture the effects. I heart this layout alot!!

Well I have learnt to basic crochet today and I was getting crazy bout it. I've crocheted a medium sized doily looking piece (no patterns given, it was made out of my imagination) . Gosh it looks so amateurish that I am actually ashamed to show you. LOL!! Nothing fantastic but I am proud of me-self. Haha. Decided to show you guys. So what do you think?

Well I kinda like it *wink*

Oh yeah before I sign off, I'd like to tell you that I am a CCCB Spotlight Artist!! Thanks CCCB DT for choosing this altered notebook to be spotlighted! Woo hoo!! You should play with their challenges, it's so so cool :)

Thanks for your love and time to blog hop a little before I hit the sack :)

Xoxo Jessy
