I hope to stay in touch with old friends,and I have made many new friends with this blog. Scrapbooking has become my new passion.I was introduced to the hobby by my youngest daughter.She went on a trip to South Africa and came home to Greece with a collection of papers ,flowers, brads and glue.SO the mania began,it is a mania that gives me such pleasure,creating gives one a great sense of achievement....
Yes it is Wednesday again...time to look at some desks and try and spot some busy bees on WOYWW. This is how I left my desk last night after streaming on ZEFFY SCRAPS.
I altered some Prima packaging...it had some flowers on it and I made this tag...once that was done I started making a matchbox.that is to become a Christmas tree decoration....you can spot the Gingerbread men that will adorn the box....I like to make my little boxes from scratch!!
The card above is made for Eleni's card challenge on Get Creative. She challenged us to use a mask or stencil on our card....I used both,and I was totally inspired by Tom Holtz!!
That is it for today!!
A quick post of a L.O. I made last night.
I was inspired by the Case File 95 on C.S.I
I had the need to journal more than I needed to scrap this week.
My journaling reads.
"The blue in me is the timid little girl that could not speak a word of English when she went to school.The blue in me is the cold and hungry child wanting to go home.The same blue girl hates winter sunsets for that reason.
The blue in me is the anxious teenager that always worried about what her younger and rebellious siblings were up to!
The blue in me is the young woman that wathched her mother battle with cancer.The same blue woman worries if cancer will appear in her body too.
The blue in me is the child that lost her mother tragically.A woman in blue that did not say good-bye to the one she loved so much.
A blue woman that was so sad that she almost lost the man she loved because she was so wrapped in her grief.
The mature woman of todayis still blue even though she puts on her brave face and her big smile.
The blue in me worries about my family's future.I worry about our financialcrisis. I wonder when we will be re-united.I mourn lost friendships. I stress about my childrens future. The blue in me is afraid to ask if things will get better or worse.....The blue is in me...."
Lately I have been wondering and in fact journaling about how much a single heart can LOVE???
I have been very busy with life these last few weeks and I wanted to kick start my creativity again...
What a better way than making a couple of cards?
Get Creative hosted a crad challenge for October and the 2 lovely ladies Marie and Puccarina inspired these two cards.....Marie I loved your White Heart!
So first up was Puccarina's Card Challenge. to draw an image or hand write on our card...when I first read this challenge I had no clue what to make!!! But Marie kick -started the creativity yesterday ...and I drew hearts! And doodled a little..............
Believe it or not the colours of this card were inspired by the taupe envelope from Hero Arts....
I used some of the vintage crochet lace I picked up in Lesvos this summer....the other piece is on Eleni's card....Just love it!
