My scrapbooking journey all started with my husband.
Every year, i would design a calendar with a monthly calendar grid complemented by family photos, but this year, he asked for something different. In previous years, he might like a photo on the January monthly calendar very much, but because it was so obviously a calendar, he felt rather foolish displaying it in his office past the month and would take it down to avoid being teased. After he came across some Japanese anime calendars which are almost completely posters save for a line of numbers at the bottom, he thought maybe i could do something similar?
And so i thought, and i thought, and finally something clicked in my mind. Why not get some inspiration from the scrapbooking community, and work with a scrapbooking theme? From then on, yours truly started slowly but surely falling in love with the whole scrapbooking world!
1. Joyjoy’s first time doing homework. Mummy vomit blood.
2. Daddy is at a company dinner, so Mummy and the kids go on a ‘you, me and the baby’ date. First item is the Jusco outdoor playground, then dinner at Tea Garden.
3. Rounding off the ‘date’ with a trip to the Jusco supermarket, where the kids ride up a storm in the trolley.
4. Saturday afternoon. Mummy is at worship practice, so Daddy brings the kids back to ... LEGOLAND!
Note: "Vomit blood" is a direct translation of a Chinese expression used to describe extreme frustration. Both the Chinese and English versions are popular and commonly used in these parts, depending on which language you happen to be speaking in at the time.
