Girls just want to have fun!!

I have just spent a wonderful evening with my two daughters....the boys all went of for a bit of a bachelors pary .
So we stayed home just the 3 of us...Faye tried on her wedding dress, Raphaella worked out how it all buttons up as I may be slightly flustered on The Day!! We decided on ear-rings  that she should wear.We then had some lovely Chinese take-outs with some wine.....As you can see we rounded off our dinner with some Tequilla shots,while working out programmes for the day and  finalizing final, finer, details
No scrapping for the next week or two...but I love it anyway!!
We are busy listening to Brian Adams ,Rod Stewart and Sting. Are  they not just tooo amazing? are taken with the cel phone,so please excuse the quality!!!
Bye for now.

Big Star!

As you all know I am busy with the guest book for my daughters' wedding. So you can imagine my horror when the cutting plate of my Big Shot cracked last week!!! I was hysterical, I phoned my friend Katerina,as I needed a shoulder to cry on.....imagine I had panicked so much that I had forgotten that I also had the long cutting plates, Katerina reminded me about them. Anyway I used the long cutting plate once, but, it was too much of a shlep to run those long plates through the machine, so I decided to use the broken one anyway, I thought that I would use it until it cracked into two pieces!  Well guess what I cut and cut and the book is just about done and the cutting plate survived the ordeal,crack and all!
So I thought that this evening I would pay homage to my dying cuttung plate that stood the test of time.
Ps. you can also see a couple of the pages of the guest book in the photo.Let me know what you think......
Good- night I hope you all have a good week.

Pre-wedding days wizzing by!

HI there Ladies.
This is a short post to tell you that yes I am still around, but very very busy catching up on things that I have to do before my daughters' wedding. These past 4 weeks have beem a bit of a set-back but I am getting around very slowly now, although this snail pace is frustrating me!!
As you can see from all the lovely goodies in the picture above, I am busy making the Guest Book for the wedding.Its turning out just fine I am halfway now and the front cover still needs to get made. I dont know if I will give you a sneek peek as I kind of want it to be a surprise.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my friend Katerina and her partner Effie from Sfragidomania.for customizing the samps I needed for the book and for the wedding favours and for making me the die cuts of the couples' initials exactly as they were on the invitation. Katerina also designed and cut out the date and names  for me.Sfragidomania designs  and cuts chipboard and stamps to order.
I wish you all happy scrapping, I will post again when I get another chance.
Keep well.

A Blessed Easter

Hi there friends.
After lying low for about 4 weeks with an injured knee, I am now hobbling about...and trying to heal before my daughters wedding!
To-day my youngest daughter Raphaella helped me make Easter Cakes "Tsourekia" we are very happy with the result.She also dyed hardboiled eggs with me looking over her shoulder......Thanks Raphaella for being so loving and helpful, during these last  couple of weeks.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Blessed Easter and my we always remember that Jesus and the Holy Spirit lives within us.
I need to hobble off to check out Raphaella's breads that have just come out of the oven!!!
God Bless.
