Somethings are just too SPOOKY

This Raya break I decided to decorate the Scrap.Abode up - infusing some Halloween festivity into it.

Not that I am not a fan or supporter of Malaysian culture and festivity - with Raya and Deepavali around the same time, I am by nature drawn to Goth; hence my fixation with the colour black, my love affair with Tim Holtz, attraction to wings and crowns ... ok, I just got the sick feeling in the pit of my stomach recalling Mayan's incredulous words and tone: "you bought 100 sets of Maya Road wings?!?" ... followed by my sister's "What?!!!!!" 'Wings? What do we do with 100 SETS of wings?"

Anyway, that was also a long, long time ago ... so, drop it. :)
Let's focus on recent s-p-o-o-k-y and the reason for this blog entry.

Here's one:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I had two lovely ladies over recently and my 2 years (nearly) 3 months old daughter said "Check this out", pointing to the plastic funnel tray just as the ladies were leaving the store.
"Check this out"?!? Gosh! This naturally got me spinning down the 'I am a bad mother' route for exposing her in the store too much. But wait a minute. First, I can't say we spend too much time in the store. After all the Scrap.Abode is only open through invitation. Secondly, I never say 'check this out' ...errr... those who knows me in person will agree that 'check this out' is a bit too glamorous and upper class for simple Val to say!
The second s-p-o-o-k-y encounter this Raya break was:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
We found a box of Halloween themed items amongst the many unopened 'junk-to-sort-out' pile. You know, the kind where you tell yourself you would go through when you are free-er ... but never since watching the DVD is considered work and so is taking a nap.

OK. So far nothing spooky about this... well, not until you are told that I swear I never bought any of those stuff and it really isn't my kindda thing/style. But what the heck, it makes great Scrap.Abode decor and was useful for some of's One-of-a-Kind Kit.

While rummaging through the box, I got inspired to make the mini album featured in Scrapbook Trends 2009 Idea Book - Mini Album which brings me to ...
s-p-o-o-k-y #3!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Whaddya know... I have everything needed to make that Spooky Fun album!
O.K. Sorry. That wasn't really spooky ... but still?!? {one must never let this on to my hubby}.
So, ladies, I will let you know how my mini album that turns out ... oh but darn! first I need to copy last year's Halloween party photos into a CD and get it printed at the shop. I really must get a photo printer. I must. It's an essential 'tool' for scrap booking wouldn't you say?
Hugs, Val

LOL - I bet Becks got the "check this out" from watching Barney heheheee (just another reason to love the big purple guy!) LOL
Look forward to seeing your decorating efforts :-)

Val, I don't think anything will surprise hubby by now and the photo printer is definitely a must have. Didn't someone in the forum a long time ago said somthing about you eventually selling cameras? lol

J said...

Val, is that a scare or scratch on Becky's face? She's so adorable.

Comel nye.
I must come soon. She has grown so big. Brian must be even bigger now. Now I miss all of you.
Lepas Raya, ok?
