Oh My Hat!!

Hi girls.
Time just flies by...we are at the end of march, can you believe that we are through the first quarter of the year, it feels as if Christmas was yesterday!!
Today I thought I would use the  challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show and replenish my card stash. The challenge this week was to show a hat!....So I used my favourite stamp and made a card.....this is it.
Enjoy the rest of the week,take care.
Love
Zeffy.

Mariposa=Butterfly

Hi there my friends.
I hope that you are all well and that you all had a restful week-end.
Tonight I want to share my latest project with you. A mini that I am making for a young lady that has just become engaged.
When I decided to make a mini for Maria I knew straight away that it had to be with my beloved Mariposa papers....I loved this paper as soon as I saw it and as you all know Weezie had send me a stack more than a year ago if I remember correclty.
I have been working on this mini on my USTREAM show Zeffy Scraps. here are a couple of pages from the mini.


I would like to take this opportunity to tell you that I will not be streaming this week as I will be visiting my son, I will however be back the following week and I intend  to complete the cover of this mini.
Keep well I hope you all have a fantastic week.
Keep well.

Zeffy a Greek Scrapbooker.

Hi there my Scrapbooking Friends..
My friend Christina invited me to play a game...
We had to write something about ourselves,some of our favourite music and a favourite quote....
Christina I took up your challenge, in my Art Journal, I wtote something about myself, but please forgive me as I will not continue this chain-(letter) ,simply because  I do not have time to search through blogs to find out who has played along and who has not..... Actually you will have noticed I am not a big fan of chain-letters.

I found the picture of an old Orthodox Church in an airport magazine, I immediately connected with it,especially since it had 2 icons of some of the Saints that influence my daily life.....
Part of this challenge was to invite 8 fellow bloggers to participate, I in turn invite all of my readersy to write something about yourselves today, something about where you are, what you like and where you are going....as I said...do not settle for MEDIOCRITY!
I am a very lucky lady because I am going to visit my son, in Cyprus, next week. So I will not be able to stream this  coming week.......
See you all on  ZEFFY SCRAPS  on the 29th March at 21H30 my time GMT+2
Thats all for now...get that journaling out its free therapy..
Filia (Kisses and friendship)

Cyber Inspiration.

Hi there my friends.
This following project has been as a result of two people...or should I rather say three??
Ok the story is as follows....I met Natalie Kalbach at PACS I did 2 lessons with her...she is fantastic! As a result I am friends with her on Facebook, last week she uploaded a photo that I LOVED!! It was of a book that was given to her by a friend Anna, I loved it so much that I made 2 journal pages trying to get the same effect...needless to say mine is not nearly as good as Annas'!
2 Nights ago I joined a group of Kathryns' on the {Scrap} Beach .A group encouraging us to use up all the old stash.
So I got thinking.....mm need 4 thank-you cards, have paper I have never used....and let me do some more collage...I love it!!
Here are 2  tags that I made last night...they still need their fibre and ribbons and I will complete the other 2 tonight on Zeffy Scraps with Friends on USTREAM.





I want to take this opportunity to thank all the crafters on the cyber network for all the conscience or sub-conscience influence in my life!
 Love you Ladies!
Zeffy.
