Pearl says KAYA!

After a very long absence from joining the Kaya challenge, I am finally able to complete a layout for this month's theme. I join in everyone's sentiment that listing only three wishes is really impossible - but I am happy to comply with settling for only what is required for this challenge. I do have grand wishes - be a millionaire, own my own house, meet Oprah. But I did take a step back and focused on something more realistic. I had a fantastic 2007, albeit being far away from home. I have learned to cherish so many things now more than ever. So my wishes in this layout are not very far-fetched.

Meeting Oprah... A girl can only dream, right?

This year, I wish for good health, travel and photography lessons..

For 2008, I wish...... For good health - sound mind, body and spirit...
... To go to a real beach - like the PhiPhi Islands in Thailand...
... To finally take photography lessons...

So here's me crossing my fingers that all of them will come true this year.

Patterned Paper, Rub-on and Stamps: Basic Grey (Two Scoops & Phoebe); Cardstock: Bazzill; Flowers: Bazzill and Imaginesce; Ghost clock and alpha: Heidi Swapp; LoopyBrads and Floss: Karen Foster; Big Brad: Autumn Leaves; Ink: Tim Holtz and Tsukineko; Pen: Staedler; Thread: DMC; Others: Stickles

About Me:
My name is Pearl and I'm currently working in the small but mighty Republic of Singapore where carrying an umbrella is not a fashion statement but a necessity, anyone who is older than you is called auntie/uncle, where shopping is the national pastime, chili is a condiment to fresh fruits and the multicultural mix is just unbelievable. At 30, I am non-the-wiser than when I was 21 (at least I think so), and I am still trying to find my purpose for existing. I hibernate on the weekends to catch up on my sleep, watch the latest episode of Project Runway downloaded from the internet while sprawled on the floor scrapping and altering stuff.. I would like to do outreach service full time when I get tired of the corporate life. Learn more about me at
