Almost here...

2011 is fast approaching. This year I have a couple of goals I want to accomplish.
Here's what I got so far....

- Create Aida's 2011 Scrapbook album - double page layouts, one side a normal layout, the other side a big photo with a quote/thought

- Complete Project 365 for 2011 and make it into a mini album

- Learn even more about photography and my camera

- Make a new signature for 2011...something more funky for posting in the forums

And that's all I can wasn't a long list but there was one more that I know I have forgotten...ugh!
Hate when that!

Anywho....I have a couple of pages to share with you and at the bottom I put together a little something as a "thank you" for looking.

These first three pages were made using 3 kits from the Fresh Fruit at Scrap Orchard.....

Blog Blitz

Welcome to the Vera Lim Blog Blitz!!! I have never done anything like this...very excited!...soo if I miss something I apologize! Though..I should not because I have read and re-read my post about a million! Soo..enough of my mindless chatter and on to the goods.... 

Wild & Beautiful is a digital scrapbooking kit by Vera Lim. We were given this kit to "play with" for the blog blitz. Just looking at the preview I fell in love with it....the soft colors to those perfectly ruffled flowers... I did not know where I start first. She even includes some lovely shadowed versions of the elements (such as the ribbons and flowers). I did not use them on my page...only because I am an extreme "want-to-do-it-myself" kind of!..yeah! a little OCD...but if I had to do a page in under an hour's time I would definitely have used the elements that are already shadowed.

I could see myself playing with the papers in this kit with some of my other scrap supplies (still using some of the kit's elements) just to mix it up a bit. The papers themselves are a work of art. So let me shush can have a look for yourself and a peek at my page that I made....

**Note: I was provided a copy of this kit by Vera Lim, a guest designer at 
This review was not influenced by a free kit - just in case you (or the FTC) were worried about this detail.

About The Kit:
Wild & Beautiful is a “gorgeous and stunning pastel colored kit!” It includes 10 papers and 34 elements (available as colored and shadowed versions – 63 total elements).

For those of you have not yet discovered Vera or are just itching to know just a little more info....

About The Designer:
Vera Lim lives in beautiful New Zealand with her dear hubby and two georgious kids. She decided to guest this month at Oscraps because, well, she heard some good things about the O’s and thought why not try it for herself!
