Family is a gift from heaven
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!
Going back to my roots as a scrapper. i had started designing family calendars as early as 2009, but it was only when i was working on the calendar for 2012 that i truly stumbled upon the wonderful world of digital scrapbooking. This year, i'm making monthly desktop wallpapers instead of the traditional poster calendar coz hubby complains that it's a hassle to put up and take down the posters at his workstation...
Anyway, the photos here were taken during the Chinese New Year period last year, which is why my daughter is in a cheongsam. As for the family photo, it was taken during the popular Chinese New Year riverside event in Singapore, which features lanterns of the animal zodiac, an open-air concert, and various stalls featuring food and handicrafts.
