Sassy August Moodboard & Blog hop with a difference!

Hello Everyone !!
It's a hump day and also very gloomy day in Melbourne!!!
I can't wait for Spring to come!!!

On a happy note, I'm blogging live with Sophia on my lap trying to type along with me!!! [can you imagine}

Let me warn you, it's a little longer than usual so please bear with me and please read!! {LOL}
When you see my frequent postings you must know Sophia is being kind[today shes on my lap!] to me by behaving well or sleeps longer!! {LOL}

Okay first, I'm sharing a layout which was inspired by Sassy Scrapper: August MOODBOARD 
The photo:
Here is my inspiration:
 
 
 
 

And finally I managed to blog this hop:
BLOG HOP WITH A DIFFERENCE....
I'm truly honoured to be invited by  Chantalle McDaniel to join in this fun Blog Hop with a Difference.

The hope is that the hop will continue to bounce its way around the blogosphere by answering a few questions and passing on to three more bloggers. Here we go....

1. What am I working on right now?
Being able to create one project a week will be a huge blessing for me! The usual blogger mates here would know that I've just gave birth to a baby girl, Sophia and she's 5 months old going to 6 months soon [19 Aug]! And I have a 10 years old son too!!! So I leave up to you guys to imagine my life right now!

2. How long does it take to create a project?
Hmm this is tricky, but on an average I'd probably say about 2 or 3 hours.
Again depending on the situation that very day, sometimes I can immediately figure what I want to do, which of course makes it much easier and quicker but there are some days I can't really decide so it might takes 2 or 3 days to complete. 

3. What are my fave things I love to create with at the moment?
At the moment, I truly enjoy playing with my diecuts to create my own embellishments. It is so much fun! I find it's much easier to coordinate with the pp, the theme and also the composition that I have planned. Oh yeah, not forgeting that I'm also having lots of fun discovering all my hidden stash and finally to use them too!!! Bliss to de-stash, don't you reckon!!!

 4. How does my creative process work?
Yes, I am sucker for challenges so I will decide which challenge to play and take it from there. My planning process usually starts with staring into space[he he he], from there I will visualise and gather what I plan to create. Of course which also mean, Sophia is having her nap and Matin is in school!!! LOL!! 

5. How do I become inspired and stay inspired?
Personally I still consider myself a newbie with lots to learn from the amazing scappers out there. So to keep constantly inspired and stay inspired I usually take my time by blog visitings, especially now I feel that I am so backdated, I feel that I'm the last to know on the latest trend!!! 

6. What is my signature style?
Can you guys please help me on this!! LOL!! Honestly I don't have a particular style but there are two things I'm pretty sure - 1. I love colours especially bright happy colours and 2. I love pretty pp. I suppose my style keeps evolving each time I discover or learn new elements to use or new techniques to try. 

7. One random fact about me 
I am a neat and tidy freak! No matter how tired I am before I go to bed my whole house has to be completely CLEAN!

And on that note, I am going to hand you over to three ladies who inspire and amaze!
1. Amy Tsuruta - She never failed to amaze me with her amazing designs on her beautiful cards!
2. Lizzy Hill - She keeps WOWing her audience with her amazing skills on her background  job!
3. Jocelyn Olsen - She the reason why I love pretty patterned papers! And the way she layered her papers beautifully, simply amaze ME!

And Thank you so much for all your love and sweet comments...

I would definitely say your signature style would be bright happy colours or at least that it what I feel when I see your pages. Little Sophie is growing like a weed and such a great picture of both of you.
