Back and catching up

Okay so I have been away from my blog for almost a month now. Aside from work, I have been traveling for the past few weeks. We have been to Bali and Singapore to spend time with relatives and friends.

I don't even know where to begin. I arrived the other day but so afraid to open my blog because I dont know where to begin. Do I post some layouts that I did before I left? Do I start catching up with all those inspirational scrapbook blogs that I am following?

So just to start, I will post the layout that I did for the May sketch challenge at OUAS for now.

 Theme: Mum
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Mum" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch.

Ideas for journalling: you as a mother, your role as a working/stay-at-home mum, sacrifices/benefits of being a mum, one day in your life as a mum, how your life has changed since being a mum, a tribute to your own mum, grandmother, guardian or someone you consider as close as your mum, your relationship with your mum or your daughter, one trait you have take from your mum, your desire to be a mum, your feelings on motherhood, what does it mean to be a mum?, what kind of mum do you want to be? , Mother's Day celebrations/traditions, your favourite Mother's Day gift given/receive etc..

Here is my take to the sketch. I remember doing this layout a day before our departure to Bali.

I had this photo printed over 2 years ago. I never had the chance to use it because of the size but after seeing the sketch, I knew immediately that I can finally use it.

I have used the May Nook kit with this layout. It arrived a bit late but thankfully I got it before I left. I love this kit so much. I am a huge fan of teal and pink together. With the Imaginarium chipboards, I was able to successfully interpret the sketch.

I know it is too late to ask you all to join the May sketch at OUAS but the great thing is, the June sketch challenge is up! View it here!
