A Little Bit About Me

Hi there,

First of all, thank you very much for dropping by. I'd love it if you would leave a comment. :D

My name is Phuong, my nickname is pton, hence Pton Designs. I have been scrapping a little bit here and there for years but I really started in 2005. I found the digital scrapping world sometime early in 2007 so I am fairly new to this. I am an engineer by day and in that totally different world from scrapping that I am immersed in, I find it equally rewarding and satisfying.

I absolutely adore Photoshop. I am a true addict. I also love food, video games, movies, books, and the list goes on and on.

I have two wonderful boys. They are my my inspiration, passion, love, heart, and soul. I have always wanted to be a mother for as long as I could remember, and I knew it would be wonderful, but I had no idea how absolutely fulfilling it is. I may never be able to go a day without worrying over every little thing again, but I cannot imagine my life in any other way.

Let me introduce you to my two wonderful sons.

This is Sean, he is four now. He is the sweetest boy ever. He taught me how to care for another more than myself, patience, kindness, and he made me want to be a better person. Sean has always been a joker and brings a smile to face each day.

This is little Ethan. His adorable face always lights up my day and he came out with his own fiery personality. He's a bundle of joy. Ethan and Sean adore each other and they make me feel like I am the luckiest person, which I am of course, in the whole wide world.

Ethan's Layout is made from Amanda Sok's Alluring Autumn Collection and Erica Hite's Bird of Fancy Brushes. The word art and photo wrap is by Katie Pertiet. The clipped flower is also from Amanda Sok.

Ah, and last but not least, my DH. I adore him, too, LOL. We have our differences, but in the end, I could not ask for a better husband. He is supportive, helpful, and sometimes surprisingly sweet.

This is not the most flattering picture of ours, but I chose to post it here because I think it shows how much we have grown.
Look at those wrinkles. We look so much older than we did not too long ago, before kids, mortgages, and all the responsibilities. However, I think we are truly happier now than we have been in the past. We have two beautiful and absolutely wonderful boys. We have been through so many ups and downs. We earned those wrinkles together. There are times I wish were easier, but in the end, we have managed to stay together and triumph. I think we look really happy here and we are.

So there you have it, a brief introduction of myself and a little bit from our corner of the world. Thank you for taking the time to read this. It means a lot to me. :D
