2nd Challenge.....

This month is going by so it's the 15th and time to issue our 2nd challenge. So here it is:

With the Holidays coming up, the next challenge is to create a lay-out about your favourite Holiday tradition. It can be any Holiday you celebrate and any tradition you like.

Here are some gorgeous examples from our DT:-


Every year it is a tradition in our houshold, to have a Christmas Photo Shoot with silly Christmas hats, reindeer antlers or elf ears.This year, we welcome Caden to the mix ! These are just some pics I did for practice. I am hoping to get one of both my boys together !


Our annual Christmas party, where my kids, their cousins, and a few of their good friends will gather on the staircase for a group photo. Nice way to keep track of how much the kids have grown year on year! The flower on the bottom right is actually attached to a hidden journaling tag behind the photo.



Muslims celebrate the festival of Aidilfitri, popularly known as 'Hari Raya' (Day of Celebration) to mark the culmination of Ramadhan, the holy month of fasting. On our 1st day of Raya, we usually go to my mum's house and eat delicacies such as 'ketupat' or rice cake and a meat cuisine called 'rendang' which are among the most famous cuisines that are served during this day. We normally had our makeup done there as it was the earliest hour in the morning and I really love this day!

Please upload your LO's to our gallery, leave us a link in the comments or e-mail them to by 30th Dec to be in with a chance of becoming our January guest designer.

We look forward to seeing your creations.
