Do you dare?
Hello, I am Caroline Lau, the Managing Partner at
I have been married to my DH, David, for almost 6.5 years now and we just had our first baby boy, Noah, last year. In my spare time, I love to run, play soccer, hang out with baby Noah, travel and try to keep up with my DH on learning Chinese (he is taking his first chinese classes now).
You can find out more about Caroline from her blog. Here's her take on the theme:
Here's the gorgeous work from the Asian Dare Gals, together with a brief bio of themselves. They haven't properly introduce themselves so here goes:
I came across scrapbooking via cardmaking in 2004. I attended my first class and became hooked instantly. I realised that it was something I used to do years ago, as I would keep a vacation journal and collected souvenir bits and later decorate an album with what I’ve written and collected. It was good to rediscover scrapbooking in a new light and with archival materials too. Over the last year, I’ve taken it more seriously and have been published in scrapping magazines and am also on the design teams of several companies. I love scrapbooking for the freedom it gives me to explore and experiment with new trends and ideas. I love the fact that there is no limit or restriction to what you can create. I certainly look forward to many more years of creative expression!
I'm a SAHM to 4 wonderful Kids and have been married to a really great guy for 14 years. If scrapbooking with acid free stuff existed when I was a teen, then I'd say I've been scrapping since then. But I began in November 2005 with acid free products after being inspired by many layouts and projects that I've seen. In September 2006 I applied to be on a DT for the first time and I am proud to say I'm their first International Designer from
I started this really addictive hobby a couple of years ago and I have found a side of me I have never found before, the creative artistic side, a side which my art teacher in school would have been proud of. Scrapbooking has really widened my perspective on things and I now try to see things in a different perspective either thru my the lens of my camera or trying to tell a story with my layouts. I love trying out different new techniques and is absolutely in love with playing with colors at the moment.
This is going to be a great time for Asian Scrapbooking and the Asian Dares .. come join us on this exciting journey. I dare .. do you ?
My name is Joanne. I come across this term "Scrapbooking" from a parenting forum. I'm like any non-scrapper, thinking it is just a nice way of arranging photos and pretty papers, until I really learn what is scrapbooking about in Nov 2005. I love the idea of keeping all my memories in a form of photos and journaling and this will be passed down generation to generation.
Along the way of scrapbooking journey, I find that it is not only memories keepers but it unleashed the creative side of me, which I never know it exist in the first place. I used to curse and swear during my Arts Class in the school day and I would never imagine that I'll be in a "Art" related design teams years down the road.
Asian Dare is the first steps out of my comfort arena and I'm really glad I am part of it.
Hi, I'm Karen. Scrapbooking has become a big part of my life: Everything goes through the "I need to take a photo" process and "Can I scrapbook this" checklist. I'm the one behind the camera and writing the stories.That's the way I like it.
Hullo! My name is Michelle and I come from the sunny island of
