Epic Friendship.

Hi There Dear Bloggers...
Firstly an apology to all of the WOYWW ers....the week has flown by and I never got to many desks...sorry.But I have returned home and it has been HECTIC!
Thank goodness that America is 6 hours behind Greece, other
wise I would have missed the deadline for my CSI Case File 90
One of the bits of evidence was to use Triangles...and this is why I chose to scrap this photo..loved the triangles on the wall....funny enough I never repeated them on the L.O....
here is the Case File,,,,
I have a cool cat, my hubby...the stripes I used are a photo of a Zebra that I took on this particular holiday.  My background has polka dots, I have tied some twine on two spots on my page and I have used 3 different alphas.
As for the white space...let us not even go there...never ever get that one right!!!CAS not my style!
My Testimony is a little bit like a diary and then I get all mushy and journal about how DH is my best friend and how he was a best friend before the romance...
That is it for now...need to go and unpack my stash...if I have not  done much by tomorrow morning I may even bring myself to share the mess with you...
Keep well ,hope you all have a happy week.

Hello Again

Hi there.
I managed to do some jouraling yesterday...woopee!!!
I missed out on the O and Z on the Craft Barn Alpha Dictionary Challenge but I have managed to do G!!
I settled on the word Grow even though the words Genesis and Germination caught my eye.... So my page is very much inspired by these words.....the thingy that looks like a vase was meant to be a sead pod, or a womb....I added old magazine paper to a cardstock circle and tore it in half......
I painted my flowers and leaves with watercolors and then fussy cut them whilst talking to friends on Skype, the orchids are cut from a magazine.......
Have a good week!

Hi there....
I have been lying low for a while, because I had a sweet little boy things where a little hectic.
My little Grandson loves my desk, especially when I am sitting there...
so crafting flew out the window.....he has gone home now, so this morning I managed to scrap some photos of him that were taken last Summer.
I used the colors from CSI Case File no.89...I used limited supplies, my L.O. looks as if it is ready to go into an old fashioned scrapbook....very out at the moment.. but I managed to use Polka dots and Alphas for my evidence, my dictionary paper says grandparent and grandson and for my testimony I used little alphas as part of my journaling and instead of a bracket I boxed my journaling.
My papers are from a 6x6 Prima pad "All About Me"..I also used some metal washers to add little detail.

Hi there People....
JULIA will be happy today as this is a short post.....
Due to the very busy little hands hanging around my desk today.....
I keep some of his things on the desk so when he runs off with something,at least he can keep it...
You can spot a tag I made around midnight last night...busy hands were asleep..
The tag is going to the lucky winner of my Challenge fact it is going to the runner up as the winner has not sent me her address...I hope that is fair...
I have added the stamped dress form onto an ice-cream stick,,,got to love dress forms....
My Sisters surprised me for my birthday...I am still getting over the intensively emotional surprise visit!
Have a a fab week.
Love Zeffy.

A late WOYWW post.222

Hi there Bloggers

Late this afternoon I realized that it was Wednesday and the day  that we snoop around fellow crafters desks onWOYWW
My desk is chaotic to say the least.....
My daughters plus my little Grand-son are here....he loves this desk...
Yesterday I received another tag for my challenge from Erina and today I received an envelope from my friend Christinawho kindly sent me some stamped images and some goodies...( video tomorrow)
You can also spot my Dressform from Jeanette and some dressforms that I have been making as well as some Ouzo bottles that I found today.
Keep well I need to dash off...will snoop around tonight when things calm down.

A Page I Almost Scrapped!

Hi there .
Late yesterday evening I decided to make my L.O for CSI Case File #86 I knew without a doubt that I wanted to use this photo, so I went through my limited stash amd pulled some papers and embellishments...looked at them and said "No!" don't think this will work....
A little later I decided to just do the background and see how that works, so, I added the 3D paste and mist and just make the L.O. and whatever I went for it!!
I am rather pleased with the result...I have managed to use scallops, art mediums, architectural features (stairs in pic)and I have tied the string round the tree and my banner.
I used Ali Edwards "Today" prompts.and have written about the day the photo was taken....a year ago!
I love the tree from Dear Lizzy that I used a perfect symbol for a family.... don't you think?
Keep well.
Have a peaceful Sunday.
And a good month...
Love .
