Scrap-it-Lah "No Red or Pink" Challenge

Today marks the second day of Chinese New Year. First day was awesome because my cousins and my Popo (grandma) came to visit us at our home and it's always nice to catch up with them and just talk silly :) That's my family for you. LOL!

Oh yeah, I have a photo to share with you :) At this mo, I heart Instagram alot!! Love the effects. That's my Popo, she's 74 this year. A very strong Hainanese woman and she always feels so sad that my mum and aunt passed away before her. I always remind her to forget the past and live a fullest life now! You still have the grandchildren! That's the least I can do to cheer her dampen spirit :)

Anyways, I am here to show you my layout I created for SIL. This month's challenge is a go one... no red or pink on your Valentine layout! I chose my wedding theme colors - purple and yellow and this is mine...

This is our latest photos taken together at Gili and I love it so much that I have to scrap about it :) I love this layout alot because I love misting, masking and just splattering. Haha. It's so much fun just to "abuse" the kraft cardstock. I know I sounded "mean" but that is what I like most! So you can't blame moi *giggles*

Still heart my Studio Calico "Weekday" stamps! They are so stamp-able! LOL!

I didn't want my journaling to be too obvious, so I wrote it below those blings!

I am always head over heels over the Prima flowers!! Put a smile on my face all the time :) Lots of Iridescent Gold glimmer mist on this piece but sadly you can't really see them on this pic :(

So wait no more... come join us again for another exciting challenge!! Do drop HERE for more inspiration ok?
Xoxo Jessy

I'm lost when it comes to flowers. I did buy some when I saw your LOs but have not used them and the prima blings.

Your layout is so cantik.
