"New beginning"**BITW**

Hello everyone!
HAPPY EASTER!!! I hope you are having a wonderful time with your families! 
Today I would like to share with you a layout I did for "Bird is the word" using the word begin/beginning! This is an important layout because it captures the first steady steps of my second daughter Ioli! The journaling says:

" These photos capture the sweet memory
of your first steady steps...
A new beginning to an unknown world 
that awaits for you to conquer"

The chipboard house and fence, are from "sfragidomania" and the papers are Echo park (a walk in the park) from "Enjoy Scrapping"

You should definitely take part in that challenge blog because Wendy from "Tidbitz in time" kit club, gives the winner the best prize I've seen around challenge blogs! A whole kit!!!! Isn't that awesome and generous? You rock Wendy! 

I am also entering "Once Upon A Sketch" challenge and here is the wonderful sketch Nadia created:

I was inspired by that photo and used butterflies, flowers,birds and the tree and I am joining  the challenge at "Scrap the girls"   too!

That's all for now! Thanks for coming by!!!!
Have a nice day!

"Wonder" **The Scrappiest**

Hello my friends!

It is Monday today and that means another great sketch reveal by talented Liz Chidester at "The Scrappiest"!
The rest of the DT members have done an OUTSTANDING job on this!!!! Jaw dropping gorgeous! Head  on over there and get inspired!

And this is my take on it!

I had a lot of fun creating that layout! I used acrylic paints which I applied on my background paper using a credit card, stamps, mists and stickles! I also used some of the wonderful gifts that Nadia sent me when I won in Get Creative! Thanks Nadia!

Those lovely cream flowers are Prima and you can find them here!

It is my first ever attempt to sew on a layout and it was SO easy with the fantastic tool "Sew easy" which you can find in "Enjoy Scrapping"! You can also find there the stamps I used!

 I am also entering a challenge at Crop Stop where they want a vintage look! I guess, almost all of my layouts could enter since I love the distressed-vintage look!!!

Thanks for visiting! Have a nice day!

...And the word is......

Hello scrap friends!!!...(and

Today is the announcement for the new word at "Bird is the word" that will hopefully inspire you to make an amazing layout! It is a favorite word and easy to use...and the word is ....


This is my example using this word! I thought it would match perfectly with a wedding photo!!!

You have two weeks to use that word in a layout or any other project and link it to BITW blog!
Visit the blog to get more inspiration from the wonderful layouts the other DT members have made! There is also a great sketch by "Nadia" that you can use if you like!

This layout is also my entry for "Once upon a sketch" blog and it is made based on that sketch...

The papers used are from the Echo Park collection "For the Record" and you can find it at "Enjoy Scrapping" 

And some TOOT!!!!!!!

If you remember, I had taken part in 6 challenges with my "imagine" layout! For BITW I cannot win since I am a DT member, I won the Nook  and "Get creative" challenge , it won the challenge in MCS, and it was pointed out at "Scrapbookers in Greece" blog!!!! So...I am happy with that! Not bad at all!!!!

Thank you everyone for your nice comments and for visiting!!!

Good morning my friends!

I am happy, excited, honored, flattered to be chosen by Wendy, the owner of "Tidbitz in time" kit club, as a member of the DT for her challenge blog "Bird is the word"!!!!!

You should take a moment to visit this blog to see my fellow and so talented designers!!!

All you have to do is use the word, given every two weeks, in your layout!
As simple as that....the Design Team will vote and choose the lucky winner!!!

IKEA mirror and a guest book.

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post to show you what I made for the entrance in my house!!!

The orange background is a small wall in the livingroom, next to the main door! My house is mainly brown,light yellow (maybe close to vanilla) and orange. This is an IKEA mirror which is really easy to alter!!!

And a guest book for a girl's baptism where the colors of the decoration will be brown and cream...little strange ha??? This album was made by "sfragidomania"

The brown chipboard is not so dark
 but this is not a good photo...sorry...

In my next post I have some good news!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog!!! Have a nice day!

p.s. Check out that nice giveaway from "Lil' red rocket"

And my layout in which I tried to use acrylic paints, do embossing and resisting techniques. I had a lot of fun!

Sorry for the lousy photos but it was cloudy...
Make sure to check out the amazing layouts that the rest of the DT has done using this sketch!!!!
