A New Beginning - The Story of your Life

Happy 17th birthday Moussa. It really feels good to complete this album in time for Moussa's birthday and for DD to hand it over to him. DD requested me to create this album as a gift and since I took hundreds of photos during the sports event, I feel it is only fair for Moussa to have a glimpse of his photos. When I pass this album to DD, I told her "I hope Moussa likes this album" and DD just nodded her head. I feel this is an appropriate gift from my girl since they only know one another barely 3 months. Well, I am over the moon when DD mentioned Moussa really love the album. That's all that matters to me.
For this album I used an assortment of papers and embellishments from various manufacturers. I did not use one brand of manufacturer. Following are pages from the album:

For this event, Moussa led his team, UHUD, but I couldn't remember who won. I know I was
busy applauding Khandak because my DD is from this team.

This photo was taken by Jabbar, a staff from ADNI who joined the TKRS camping
trip to Melaka.
This was Moussa's glory, the final track event for the boys. 

Commissioning Ceremony for the TKRS team members. Moussa was awarded the
rank of Lans Korperal

Group photo

This was my first encounter with Moussa who was the Champion for the 9 km run. Soleh came out 3rd
while Ghazi was 4th.

Moussa's short Biodata which I obtained with the help of dd

It's difficult not to put slowers even though this album is for a man. My first attempt at
decorating a Mini Album

The back cover which I decided to leave as is.

I love that little Bird Cage very much and I have had it
for more than 2 years. It's good to be able to put it
to use finally.

This is my first attempt at Mixed Media and this layout really gave me mixed feelings.
I failed to submit it to the SYTYCS challenge because hubby's internet crashed.

For every Adni's sports events, the traditional Battle Cry challenge is a must.
This is to enhance the Team's spirit

I love this photo of Moussa. As for the title, refer to my earlier entry.

Moussa won Silver Medal for this track event.

Moussa showed compassion towards his 'fallen comrade' after the 800m race. Ghazi
was his alternate partner but somehow Ghazi couldn't finish the race. He collapsed after 
the 1st round. This is a rare sight indeed.

Soleh truly gave Moussa an edge in this race.

As a result, Moussa managed to clinch the Bronze Medal

This is about Moussa

This is my swan song layout for Colourful Creations "So you Think you Can Scrap" challenge. I was on my last leg for this layout when my darling hubby told me internet was down. I don't know whether to cry or to scream - but I was totally, I mean totally disappointed and heartbroken.

Another layout for Sketches4all Srping Scrap-a-thon. This is for Hop1 challenge by Becky Atkinson. Her rules are as follows:
My challenge is a recipe challenge.
You can do any paper project you like(layout, card, tag, smash, etc) but you must include at least 4 items from the following list of ingredients.
  • punch
  • distressing
  • title
  • stickle
  • patterned paper
  • buttons
  • doodling
  • hand written journal
Since I am creating a mini album for Mousaa's upcoming birthday (at the request of DD), this layout is of Mousaa at a practice session during their TKRS Camp at Ayer Keroh, Melaka, on October 23, 2012. This photo was taken by Jabbar, one of Adni's staff. I must say, I was a little bit disappointed because Jabbar took more photos of the boys rather than the girls, using my camera. According to Zahra', he was not allowed to even come close to the girls' side of the camp. Pity there was no lady photographer tagging along the trip. Oh well!
Here's my take for the challenge where I use:
Pattern Papers
Doodling (the swirls)
Handwritten journal (date and location)
Location: Ayer Keroh, Melaka
Event - TKRS Camp
Supplies: Pp - Mix & Match from stash
Shabby Buttons
Kaisercraft Alphas

This layout is part of the mini album I am creating for Mousaa, for his upcoming birthday. There is a reason for this unusual title actually.
My daughter excitedly told me of her encounter with Mousaa after class one day. Since her mind was clouded with her Arabic tuition, without much thought she asked Mousaa whether he attended Arabic tuition as well. That was his answer in response.
