DT Layout - Scrap It Lah

A new wonderful challenge for you at Scrap It Lah. This time you are to use the initials of the challenge, yes S.I.L. First I was lost, I wanted to be more funny, but just couldn't. However, I found a nice picture of my hubby and son sailing in Langkawi, Malaysia. Then it was clear, S.I.L, Sailing Is Life. Now take the chance and be more funny than me and check the other DTs, they where definitely more clever than me, LOL!! This month GDT is Wati from Singapore, she is a fantastic scrapper.

Tilda in red!

Do you also love this color combo? Red, blue and white! I guess you can use this card as a Xmas card or for anything else. I used a sketch from this week's challenge no 18 at Truly Scrumptious. Loved it! I made the little hanging charm thing (good name for it?) from silver flowers I bought in China town here in KL and put a bling in the middle!

This week's image is a beautiful autumn one, Harvest Geese. The challenge is to make a 3D effect on your project. Well on my card you can't see that I have used 3D dots for the whole image, I should have taken the photo differently, but is to late, I made this one for a friends 19 years old son, so it already sent.

I invited some girls over on Friday to sell my cards for the benefit of the Chin (Myanmar) refugees here in Malaysia. I managed to sell for 900RM (about 260USD) and I will give it all to the Chins, I work with this group helping them with handicraft. They, themselves make cards, bookmarks, beautiful bags, table mats and more to be able to survive here they need to sell their products on various occasions such as bazaars. I think I sold around 45 cards and above you see the tags I made for the prices.
