Obsession by Nida


Hi there! It's my turn again and this week we have a new theme. Obsession.
Frankly speaking, this theme is not an easy one for me. Maybe because I have a lot of obsessions? Lol! Not really. Shoes? Handbags? Emmm...nope. Jewellery? Nahh... I don't call myself obsess over that too! It was quite long for me to figure out until I was at the bookshop one day and going through some funky note pads, which I just had to buy. Yess...Books! Notepads! I am obsessed with books and paper pads. Here's my confession; I have been obsessed with books since I was a child.

So, here's my layout showing off my constant obsession. There's a photo of me with my precious new bookshelf and holding my latest crave on Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments Series. The 2nd photo; is just to show a small percentage (ha ha!) of my notepads collection. I have been a collector of note pads since 1992! Some of which, I have used as my personal journal, some to jot down favourite recipes (only jot..but never tried!..hehe)  and others, well, to-do-list and etc. I have different notepads for different activities like birthdays planning, maternity, scrapbooking and cardmaking (and this one I carry with me everyday in my handbag! Lol!). I have several colours of notepads in the office and I usually rotate them. Makes office life more interesting and less stressful ( in a very small way).

By the way, thanks to Scrap Yourself, this is the first time I took a photo of myself. I hope this won't be my next obsession..Sheeesh....

Just on the materials used here in my layout.
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Smile Always, Glitz Creations; and also a bit from DCWV.
Bloomers: Bo Bunny, which I have distressed with Tattered Rose Distress Ink by Ranger
Punch: Martha Stewart & Fiskars- used my scrap paper for this.
Chipboard stickers: My Mind's Eye

Anyway, I hope you like my layout. A very simple one from me this time. :)
