Photo Inspiration Challenge @ Scrappin Studio

Last Saturday, our church collected love offering for the people in Japan. I was saddened by what happened to the country. While watching the video, it really moved me to give even more! Yes, pls pray for Japan and the Japanese! We're blessed... truly!

I came across this photo on the net while thinking about Japan. Immediately, I got inspired to create a layout. I love the yellow kimono and what got me inspired was the wrap around the waist - the belt. The colors on the kimono was perfect for the kit too! Hence I got out the SC April kit - Singin' In the Rain out and started to assemble the pieces.

Here's my interpretation:

That's my maternal grandma. We call her Popo. She taught me to be kind-hearted! She always emphasizes that to all her grandchildren and she's one good cook! She can't really cook now but she is still one awesome Popo. Love her! The photo above was taken during Chinese New Year & we had the best time ever!

Close-up shots:

My late-mum loved to write our age at the back of the photo and she definitely reminded me to do the same on this layout :)

That butterfly was die-cut from the Oct Afternoon alpha packaging that was in the kit.


The Challenge:
To create a layout that has a wrapping element.
Use the photo as your inspiration and leave us a post link @ SC Blog HERE with your completed layout.

The challenge will start from: 18 April - 2 May 2011 (12am Malaysian time). A winner will of course get to win RM20 Scrappin Studio Gift Voucher.

Wait no more and start to create!!
Xoxo Jessy
