Lesson 2 is all about custom shapes. At the end of this lesson, you'll be able to:
Use a custom shape to draw a large photo mask
Load a selection to cut shapes for clipping masks
Create a popped-up shadow on a journaling card
Create letter stickers from patterned paper and a font
Create a title that flows along a curve
Load a selection based on type to create a clipping mask
Add pop to photos with the Burn tool
Create a collage of embellishments
These are my two layouts I made using the technique taught in Lesson 2. I never look at Custom shape the same again. So many creative ways to use custom shape waiting to be explore. This is definitely not the style I'm custom to. But right now I am in Learning mode and exploring my creative style. This is definitely so much fun!
Now I am obsesses with finding custom shapes. And it's also time to start Lesson 3. Can't wait!

And this is the finished look after applying the foundation and a compact powder.
- I don't really like the packaging just because it doesn't have a pump. I tend to use more if I have to pour the product on my hand
- It' s feels light on my skin. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing any foundation
- The coverage is great. It covers my uneven skin tone very well
- The foundation also looks good on camera. That's a plus for me because I love taking photos of myself on daily basis
- It has SPF
- This is definitely a foundation I would wear on a daily basis
- If you are on a budget and need of a good coverage, then this foundation is for you

Kudos To You is a new kit from Pixelily Designs. It’s currently on sale at GottaPixel store. I just love the color in this kit. Happy, sunny and amazingly beautiful.
This is a layout I made using the above kit.

By week three I have reached my plateau. My weight doesn’t seem to go down at all. I think I might be losing inches just because I can fit into my pre pregnancy clothes again. Doing strength training workout makes me want to eat more. I have to be careful with that.
Current weight: 58.6kg
My Review and Tips
- Speed 3.0 is definitely getting tougher and harder just because I know the workout now and can focus more
- I have be watched what I ate just because I am doing the workout every day doesn’t mean I can eat what I want
- I increased my cardio this week by doing Speed 1.0 during weekend
- I am beginning to despise The Pyramid. I just can’t finished all the workout anymore… hemmm
- I still love Extreme Circuit the best compare to the other.
So far I have a very strange third week. Most of the workout doesn’t seem to be getting easier. Somehow every thing gets tougher. I am on my fourth week now. I can feel my abs getting stronger on the inside. I just wish I could see it on the outside.

So far my second week on this challenge is very interesting. Making a challenge like this work really need consistency and commitment. The key is to remember to do it every single day.
Here are my self portrait challenge for week two
Since today I didn't have to go to work, my outfit if the day is a little bit casual. I live wearing pink outfit. Somehow it makes me feel happier than usual.
love my new lipstick from urban decay in the shades obssesed. It's a beautiful pink and really look good as an everyday look
I am reloving Penultimate App for my ipad this month. It’s fun and easy to use especially with your stylus
I have been using this handbag since August. I just love how small a light the bag is. These are the items that I carry with me daily to work. Clinique CC cream, loreal true match compact powder, wireless hotspot, earpod, thumb drives, jotnot stylus, black pen, bonia purse, revlon lipstain, mac lipstick, maybeline color tatto in Taupe shade, revlon colorstay eyeliner, my car key and my access card for the office in a small polkadot pouch.
This is definitely my current obsession, taking photos of myself and taking photos of my baby. No matter how much older he gets I've always think of him as my baby. I just can't get enough of this little boy. Such a joy to be with. He is currently in a screaming mode when he can get anything done by himself
Today we were having a family day out. We love spending time at Sony Center playing with the latest technology. This is so much fun.
I took this idea from Beautifulmess Photo Idea book – diptych, presenting two photos at the same time. These are some random photos taken today at my house and the shiny while camera is the latest edition to the family. Finally I decided to buy a camera that are so different than what I usually buy.
Take a peek at my Week One progress right here.
