It was also a double celebration of the birthdays of Iris (Feb 12) and Dinah (Feb 25) so we had soooooo much food. We were eating, scrapping, laughing and having a great time from 10am to 10pm.

Valentine Cookie-Making Day

Yesterday was our annual Valentine Cookie-Making Day. With 3 kids, we have to make a whole lot of cookies to give to all their teachers and classmates too!

This year I thought of a cute way to package the teachers' cookie treats -- I cut out a 4-petal flower from the Slice Noteworthy design card, then folded up the bottom 2 petals to make a pocket to hold a cookie in. The Nikki Sivils double-sided cardstock from U R My Favorite was perfect for this project!

Celebrating China

Kiki-Art's blog theme for January was China so I created 2 LOs featuring my favorite thing from China ever --- food! Check out my blog post here.

The 1st LO uses pics from our trip to Macau last year where we just ate whatever took our fancy. Check out the cool puzzle pieces chipboard!

Title: Feasting in Macau

Materials: Bazzil cardstock, Kiki Art papers and puzzle pieces; Zig pens, Making Memories and Autumn Leaves letter stickers, Slice machine

Journaling: One of the best things about traveling is trying out new foods. So when we went to Macau we didn't let the language barrier stop us. I would just point to something in the display and take whatever they handed me or just order whatever they say is their specialty and munch away! Yummy! Macau, May 28, 2009

The 2nd Lo is about one of my "comfort foods" --- Barbecue Pork and Rice. I make it a point to have this each time I got to Hong Kong. Check out how I used the Fun Tape on this LO!

Title: Comfort Food

Materials: Bazzil cardstock, Kiki Art papers and rub-on tape; Ranger pen

Journaling: I am not Chinese but this is one of my comfort foods. Barbecued Pork and Rice. This is a must whenever I'm in Hong Kong even for just a lay-over in the airport. It doesn't even matter which restaurant I get it from because I haven't gotten a bad one in Hong Kong yet. Now if only this was as easy to find in Manila. May 27, 2009, Hong Kong Airport

Advanced Happy Chinese New Year everyone!!!
