Living The Dream

Since being active in TLP, I've come to love a few designers' work. They are the Pink Reptile Designs & Little Butterfly Wings. And I'm proud to say that I have most of their kits.

Since I've gotten several GSO using their kits, plus January is my birth month and with some encouragement from fellow digi-scrappers, I took the plunge and ask to be on the Guest CTs for these two awesome designers.

They. Said.

I start work for PRD the moment I am granted access to her CT forum.

As for LBW, she'll make the arrangements for me after next week.

!!! What a way to start 2014 !!!

So here I am ... letting it go.
The journaling is extracted from the "Let It Go" lyrics. Naturally, of cos.

Saving Gaia

Journal reads:
Ever since the new canteen at 2nd floor allows me to use my own cup to buy the tea, it has become a morning ritual to have a cup before I start my work day.
And the best part is I get to save 20-cents when I used my own cup.
