Hi there lovely ladies...
Today I want to share with you a L.O that I made with one of my favourite photo from our summer vacation, it does not look like summer,no, we were in rainy Scotland, that is why.
I used the word share in my title so that I can enter the L.O. for the Bird is the Word challenge and I used the September 15th sketch from Once Upon A Sketch
I used Websters Pages from Country Estate and I did not choose the design according to the names! my background paper is called "Calm Moments"  and I cut out the flower from the beautiful "Flower Breeze"
The clock screams Tim the man!  And the birdie in the next page is also from a sheet of Websters Pages,can't remember which one he came from, he has been cut out for ages now!
Love and leave you...
Will be busy on lots of new projects look out for streaming on Zeffy Scraps I will be "live" this afternoon at 16H30 GMT+2
Remember to ask about my workshops!

A perfect Grand-Father.

Hi there all you fantastic Ladies.
I hope that you all had a very relaxing Sunday, I had a long nap this afternoon and now I am still awake, it is 2am!
I wanted to share with you a L.O. I made on Saturday on my live show Zeffy Scraps with a precious old photo that I found at my FIL house this summer.
I had a giggle when I saw this photo, it must have been taken by my MIL in 1990...Faye and Michael are giving my precious FIL a run for his money, combing and curling the precious little hair he  has on his head.....he is sitting very it!!!
If you look carefully the "hair styling kit"is called MISS LIL so I decided I had to use the sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches. I only had one photo so I had to switch up the sketch a lil....hope you like what I did.
I used the July main kit from My Creative Scrapbooking ,the papers are Echo Park 'Life is Good" the background paper is called 'Brown Floral" my photo mat is called " Seeing Spots" and  I have used a sheet of  Crate paper from"Emma's Shoppe Collection",that is the floral and the yellow check, oh by the way the little pink diamonds are ancient they are Basic Grey...
As you can see in the video I have machine stitched my border as well as some trimmings.
That is all for now...keep a look out on USTREAM as I will be streaming more often during the day this next week....but being Greek I can't commit to a day and time at 02H28!
Nighty night...

Hi there Ladies.
Tomorrow we begin the last quarter of this year! Can you believe it? Where has time gone??
I have returned home and have spent the whole week sorting my life out...Including technical problems around the house.
I have also finalised my programme for the  workshops that I will be hosting in October and November... please e-mail me, more details, for should you be interested.
Yesterday I got down to some fun!! I have not done a challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show for ages and this week they wanted us to show them some ATCs Atrist Trading Cards....

I have never, ever made any ATCs and once I started I could not stop!....My theme was Time Flies and rather egocentric!!
I used some scraps from my Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutantes papers and these ATC will be stored in my Hope Album/Journal...I am hoping to make a video of that real soon!
I will be getting back to my USTREAM  shows in the course of next week, I will be posting my schedule on Zeffy Scraps this week-end. So keep a look out, and I may even do an Impromptu streaming tomorrow!!
Lots of Love....
PS. Time to get thinking about Christmas!!

The end of our summer vacation

Hi there girls.
 I hope that you are all well, and that your little ones are all back to school and life is slowly returning to normal.
This will be a short post as I have to go and pack my belongings because I too will soon be returning to the hot and crowded Athens!
This is a  photo of Raphaella taken ages ago , when she used to spend  whole afternoons in the swimming pool! I used to call her my Fish.
I made this L.O. according to the sketch from My Creative Sketches and I used Basic Grey papers "Sweet Thread" from the October Main kit.
I used re-cycled corrugated board that I gessoed and misted for the frame, I tried to capture the feeling of water with my white acrylic paint ...and the rest speaks for itself...
Lots of love from Lesvos.

Two Special Grannies

Hi there.
As I mentioned in my previous post,I have found a pile of lovely photos to scrap at my FIL home...
Raphaella and I are still here,taking it easy and I have been doing a little bit of scrapping in my make-shift  set-up.
Last week I decided to do a L.O. with this photo of Raphaella and her two Grannies preparing her for Baptism. I was thrilled when I found this photo because this is one of the last times we photographed my Mom before her death a couple of months later.She is holding up Raphaella whilst my MIL is preparing the new clothes she will be dressed in after her baptism.One is fully submerged into water at a Greek Orthodox baptism.

I put this L.O.together on Zeffy Scraps my USTREAM show  this past Thursday, I followed the sketch from Sassy Lil'Sketches although I must admit I substituted the bunting for the scalloped die-cut and the butterfly!I also substited the rub-on journalling for the other photo. The piece of patterned paper behind the photo mat  is acually a hidden tag for private journalling.

My background paper is Prima "Pastiche" the scroll is also Prima, but the journalling spot under the flowers is from Crate Papers. I have added some diamond Stickles on the butterflies and the a couple of dots on the top corner.
 I am making some altered Domino pieces that I hope to show you soon, I leave you all with good wishes for a pleasant week-end.

Memories of 1984

Hi there my Scrapbooking Gals!
It has been ages since my last post. I have not done much scrapping this past month.
What I did do though was spend quality time with familyand friends. Eating, swimming and chatting. I have also found a stack of lovely  photos to scrap, here at my Father-in-law's home.
Yesterday I decided to tuck in and do some internet surfing and then  some scrapbooking.

I loved this photo that I found, it is of my daughter Faye on her first birthday sitting on her Great-grand-mother's lap, adorable!
Seeing that I have been out of action for so long I decided to tackle some challenges....this L.O. will be entered into 3....
Bird is the Word .....with the word "memory"
Once upon A Sketch....... Nadia I stretched your sketch a little, and the year was 1984!
Get Creative.......use a frame on a L.O.

The papers I used are Crate Papers "Portrait Collection" the frame is from the die-cuts, I have just coloured it a little, as I did with the Prima journaling spot can you see it? The birds and butterfly are from Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden"
That is all for now, hopefully I will get back into USTREAMING by the end of this week.
Enjoy your last swims, lots of love.
