Even since the heat craze started, I've been thirsting for Peach Tea. No reasons to why a women craves but it quenches my thirst.
So...I've been drinking cold Snapple (Its lovely)...
I still prefer Twinings, maybe coz its pure black tea and I dont add sugar. Quite cautious on not pounding the weight on flavored drinks. Now Twinings peach tea is super difficult to find. Any idea where I can find them? I last got it from Macao.
We hear it so often that Valentines is too commercialized.
Do you agree?? I definitely do. BUT we do not need to succumb to what is laid on the table. Just celebrate it the most special way one feels.....may it be couples or families or friends.
For those who dont mind joining in the crowd, by all means....knock yourself out coz there are no hard and fast rule as to how Valentines should be celebrated.
So personally, this is how I like mine to be or how we celebrated.... ( a lil bit chaotic because of CNY celebrations).

Sadly enough, I've not won any blog candy before but really praying I'll win this. Scrapbooking in Malaysia is ridiculously expensive. So do log on to Arlene's blog to win. Oh btw, I am her faithful subsriber @ youtube.
From a tutorial I learned from apieceofcraft.com. Its super easy and this was my first attempt. I just used some scrap paper from my stash. Added a pink bling from Daiso. And I love the cute elephant, just some random puffy stickers bought from bookstores.
I made a tag to go in the pocket. This photo is 2" by 2". I stuck the photo on some scrap pieces saved from packaging, made it look like a mini polaroid. I love it!! Those alpha stickers are from making memoris....super cute! The butterfly bling is from the art shop i visited last week. Really like how it turned out.
This is how it looks with the tag in the pocket. So cute right?? yeay!! Am happy with the results! Will definitely make more. Maybe a mini album full of pockets?? Well I need to find the time for it. (=
Some items I purchased from Daiso and local art stores. I love stationaries. Even when I was little girl, never was intrigued by candies but I love love, stationary shops. LOL!
