Just one day

A lot can happened in a day. A baby was born in a day, people died in a day, a landslide can cause a disruption in a day, a city can be destroyed in a day and life can changed in a day. Nothing is ever permanent in this world. 

Living in a fast changing world where changes happened almost instantaneously can be challenging. You really need to adjust with the new normal fast. There's no time to mourn the lost.

This is why I love the press a pause button and take a time to document life on a daily basis. It's important to capture life at the moment rather than hold on to something big to happened. 

So today I decided to make two scrapbook layout with two photos of today which capture my / our moment in time because when tomorrow comes these may not be our normal anymore.


Scrapbooking / Memory keeping isn't about a fancy design or beautiful layout, it can be about the photo and the story. What you want to remember about that day or about that particular photo. I am sure that a month from now or a year from now I am going to look back at this point in time and said that this was me and this was my life. I exist in this world and life is better because I was here.

These layout is inspired by Cathy Zielske's layout from this blog post. I just love her simplistic approach to scrapbooking and she makes turning 47 sound cool. And she's funny too.

Digital Project Life [Week 45]

For Week 45 it's back to Project Life App. I used Project 52 kit for the title card and for the filler cards I used Be Fearless Kit. This week images were edited with Pic Tap Go, Picframe and Phonto. I am happy with the overall results.

Follow You Home // the review

I have never read a book by Mark Edward before. This is my first one and I have no idea what to expect. The reasonable price on kindle and audible made me decide to purchased both of them. I've finished reading this book in less than a week!! It seldom happened to me but when it does, it means that I can't put the book down for long.

What the book is all about?

"It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime, a final adventure before settling down. But after a perfect start, an encounter with a young couple on a night train forces Daniel and Laura to cut their dream trip short and flee home.
Back in London, Daniel and Laura vow never to talk about what happened that night. But as they try to fit into their old lives again, they realise they are in terrible danger—and that their nightmare is just beginning…" excerpt from

What do I think?
- I thought this book is about ghost or vampire but it's more scarier than that. The kind of scary thing that can happened to anybody.
- the plot and the characters develop are solid. The author successfully introduce twist and turn at every corner and I just can't get enough of it
- I literally felt sick by what happened to one of the character
- I felt like shaking Danial for the truth, the suspense is killing me
- I like this book so much that I already bought another book by Mark Edwards

I highly recommend this book if you like psychological thriller and your heart can take it.

These are my life in photos for week forty five for 2015  . So many things happened and if I don't take the time to document them I might miss a lot. I still believe when you took the time to document the every day and the good things that happened in your life, you will be more grateful. Just saying.

Do you join Project 365 this year?

see your work and a glimpse of your life in 2015
