Hi there Sweet Friends.
Today's post is dedicated to my Darling, Husband, Panos....
My husband of 32 years and good friend of 35 years.....

Panos has and still encourages me in all of my endevours...he is always there to council me and he is always my best critic when it comes to my hobbies...
To say that I love him dearly is little......The hardest thing that I have had to do in my life is to live far away from him....that is our currant situation....we hope that things improve in Greece ....
These photos were taken last month when we managed to spend 3 days...alone....the last time we had taken a holiday together was in 2008!
This L.O. was inspired by C.S.I. a Big thank you to Debbi and her DT for always grabbing my attention!
For evidence I have wood, metal,string, jewels and testimony is written on the tags.
I have written about how great it was to getaway, one on one and spend quality time with my D.H..and how much fun we always have together!...

This "Love" theme was inspired by my very Special and Sweet friend Katerina and her team on Scrapbookers in Greece, thanks ladies for the fantastic company and all that you do for scrapbooking in Greece....we have come a long way in the past 3 years!

I am sure that you have guessed that my title reads "love" in Greek writing....thank-you Sfragidomania for always meeting our demands here in Greece...
Wishing you all a blessed day, filled with love and happiness.

 Next to my L.O. is my An A to Z of Me journal...I am so happy doing their daily is some of my work. What you see there is the J page the word was JOURNEY.

Here is the H page....Humour... Technique: stamping with fruit or veggies...I used an apple, a quince and a lemon.

Lots to say today...

Hi there Scrapbooking Friends.
As you can see from my previous post I have caught the Art journaling bug, big time.....I have been journaling for a while now, it is my kind of therapy...and my journals have been private....but I am so motivated by An A to Z of Me.. I thought I will share...
But first a L.O.
I have used the lovely sketch from Sketches with a Twist... the colors scheme and all the bits and bobs are from my favourite CSI Case File #57..

SWAT wanted us to use texture paste so I used snowflakes so that I could also enter this L.O. in the Get Creative challenge.
I eventually used my BG fabric brads that I have been hoarding as that was one piece of evidence needed, as well as leaves and birds...
My testimony is scattered around the page. My rub on reads "The years go by and love grows with each memory we make" And 'We always have fun times together!"
This  G page for the An A to Z of Me was inspired by Natasha May's Big Hair Girls.....I first used a plastic doilie for a mask..then I started playing with red was not runny enough!...I will definately make more big hair girls...I had such fun!
Wishing you all a good nights rest and a blessed Sunday.
P.S.Pop over to A and Z of me and check out the H Video....the guy is in the grocer with his Black berry!!

Art Journaling Like Crazy!!

Hi there Dear Friends...
As I said on facebook, my poor L.O. has taken a back CSI  L.O. has been 90% finished since Tuesday....I have been on a Journaling high!
 As I told you in my last post it is all Eleni's fault..she digs up all of these challenges, and then we want to play too...
I am very late for the V word on the Alpha Challenge , but when I heard letter V from Eleni I knew I wanted to art the word VENERATE....this page is inspired by an embroidery my Gran embroidered for the church when I was a little girl...I would admire it each Sunday at church......I stamped with gold using my own hand-carved stamp and I wrote the Jesus Prayer and the Hail Mary as backgrounds...So here it is anyway.
 The next page is for An A and Z for Me....I like this challenge as it is very inspirational...and I am going through a difficult patch at the moment so this site is just what the doctor ordered!
And I am sure  that my Husband told them to choose F for fitness...he nags me each and every day that I need to get away from my desk and go and excercise!!
So note to self....
The first layer of medium on this page is all of the scrap pieces of paper that were lying on my desk....they make for beautiful texture!
Keep well ...look out for my G page...a girl can dream you know...
Love Zeffy

Creating in Chaos WOYWW 192

Hi there dear Friends...
The question yesterday was do I tidy up, or do I just shove everything back a little and create???
I am shameless to share my untidy desk with you today on Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday it is a close-up so you don't see the chaos!!
As You can see I chose to create!!

You can spot, some hand carved stamps, some hand-made flowers inspired by The Gentleman Crafter.
The colourful book you see is an altered dictionary, my first page...I got jealous when I saw my friend Eleni's lovely pages...she is playing at the Craft Barn doing the Alpha Challenge... I chose the word ETHNIC for the letter E.....I have a coupleof pages to catch up, but that is fine...

I am a little Greek girl that was born in Africa... and yet I feel thatI am a Hippie deep down...were it not for my hubby I would be dressed in long flowing dresses, with wild hair and lots of beads around my neck!!! The second two do happen!
Here are the flowers..
That is it for to tidy up that desk!!!
Love Zeffy!
