Dear Ladies,
fingers itching and I have my November Oriental Challenge eagerly sitting in my Hard Drave waiting to get out.

It's official that Media Fire is blocked :( sob sob sob. I am still finding a way to get around it.
I miss giving out freebies.. seriously.

I had so many freebies ideas and it's just sitting there.

Good news that I turned a little Hybrid while I am in search of a way to get to my MediaFire.. I heard about proxy.. so I am trying to see what that means.

So the Hybrid that I made were bragbooks.. I have a few bragbooks freebies in the past and didn't really use that so, I popped in the local Chinese Stationary shop and bought some plastic covers, my friend Susan, my only scrapbooking friend in China, had some ribbons and I used the ribbons to make it pretty.

The good thing is the materials is not expensive here. I made 8 bragbooks over a week!! the plastic covers cost about 1.50 yuan, and the printing, a nearby University Press, cost about 5yuan for an A3 colour printing!!! how cool and cheap. I will take some pictures of the hybrid I made ok? And show it to you. I love my Christmas gift and I am sure my God daughter and my mom will lover her gift.

Another Hybrid is a Christmas gift to Thomas's Mother. As I will be spending Christmas in Germany this year, my FIRST European Christmas, I wanted to give her a meaningful present. I went and bought a photo album. The album is covered with Chinese silk and it comes with a matching box. I used as many pictures as I can and scrapbook it and print it out like a photograph and insert it in the album!! it's really cool I get a picture to show you. There are 40 pages but I have only 18 pages but hey, this gives me chances to scrap this christmas trip and then send it to her and she can add more pictures to the album!! What a great idea.. :)

I am thinking of making my own scrapbook I have about 30 pages on my Japan trip and about 30 pages on my last year's Europe trip. I have asked a few publisher to print my books. It cost about 300 yuan. and 8X8 hard cover book. I wonder how much it is for Shutterfly and how big is the book I will check that out too.

Thanks to DebM and Lisa for your comments. I am not giving up girls. I know I may not make a huge difference in the Scrapping world but hey I know my freebies are liked by many and I will not give up. So once I get back on my feet I will be giving you FREEBIES again.. I love doing it. :)

As for now, I will keep a consistant blogging and keep you up dated in my blogging world.

Love Liz
