"Chilling @ the bar" **The Scrappiest**#121

Good morning everyone!

There is a new sketch at "The Scrappiest" by Liz which is one of my favorite!!! I wasn't going to make a layout for this week, due to lack of time, but when I saw that sketch I couldn't resist!!!!! And if you enter you could win a yummy kit from "Dixie Pieces"!

Of course, I always do what first comes into my mind as soon as I see a sketch and that's what I imagined!

My inspiration came from "Scrap That Baby"
which is a very inspirational challenge blog for all of us who have children under 4 years old!!!
We had to scrap a picture of a day out with our baby but I actually scraped a "night out" with my baby! This photo is a little blurred, but I LOVE IT and it was the perfect chance to use it! Isn't it funny??? Having a drink at my father's bar in Samos island (what else?...MILK!!!) LOL....hahaha ..all the tourists were joking and laughing! After her drink, she danced on the bar!!! Imagine what she'll do when she'll be

I hope you like it! It is not my usual style (I think) but I like to experiment!
Thanks for looking!

Have a nice day!

"Roma" & more...!!!!

Hello! First of all I would like to thank all of you ladies that take the time to leave me a lovely comment, I appreciate it! I wish I had the time to visit all your blogs and do the same but, especially May & June, are my worst months because I am full with guest book orders for baptisms.

Liz has a new sketch up at "The Scrappiest"!!! It is a wonderful sketch to try some layering!!! I once again used Echo Park "For the record" collection which I LOVE!!! It is SO easy to work with!!!

We went to Rome with my DH for 5 days and we LOVED it!!! Every turn you take, a statue or fountain is revealed!!! It is a very romantic destination!
You should definitely visit it and I am sure you will want to go again!

I used a brush and some black acrylic paint to make the splattering in the background! It was So fun!!!

I am also participating in the challenge over at MCS where you have to have layers in your layout!


Now....I really don't know what to say.....I didn't expect that with ALL those (86) amazing entries, I would be in 3rd place at ONCE UPON A SKETCH!!!WOOHOO!!! I thought that last time, I was just

So...That made my confidence hit the step at a time...maybe one day I'll be number one...! 
I want to thank all the DT that voted for me!!! Congratulations to all the featured ladies!

I have more exciting news to share with you on the 27th!!! I can't wait!!!

Thank you for looking!!!
Have a nice day!

Card "I love you"

Good morning my friends!

Another boring week at the office begins...grrrr....Anyway, time flies and we should live every moment like it is the last!

I am not much of a card maker...I don't have anyone to send them they pile up in a box and noone cares about them...or this is just the way I see it...However, this card will be given to my DH for his Bday! I hope you like it!

I have used, once again, left overs from my "Laced with Grace" kit from "Enjoy Scrapping" and I added that gorgeous butterfly paper from Glitz's paper layers!!! I love that stuff!!!

I followed that sketch from "Card Patterns"

And since it is for my DH's Bday, I am also entering "Get Creative" challenge where you have to make a Bday card but not childish!!!

I'll post again tomorrow for the new reveal of "The Scrappiest"

Thanks for visiting!
Have a nice week!

"Hey" LGS challenge.

Hello my friends!
I was blog hopping to find a challenge to participate in, since my mojo was high during the week! So, when I saw that lovely picture at "Let's get Shabby", I decided  to give it a go!  I love these colors!

This time I used a photo of my eldest daughter Nefeli at her Baptism and that way they both have one of their Baptisms! Of course i might do some more cause I have some lovely photos!
This one makes me laugh! She looks like, either she is singing opera, or like she is saying "Hey..!!! Leave me alone! I had enough of this!" ...LOL

Usually I work on sketches but this time the design just popped out in my head! Maybe that's why it's a bit
And some close ups...that lovely metal rose is from Srap crafts!

 I don't know if you can see it but there is a small butterfly bellow, cut out of the transparency!

Sorry for the bad photos but it was cloudy here...
Thank you for looking!!!

"Bouquet of rose kisses"**The Srappiest**

Hello bloggers!

Sketch #119 is up and believe me when I say, I was truly AMAZED when I visited "The Scrappiest" blog, by the GORGEOUS layouts that my fellow DT members have created!!!...WOW.... I just love Liz's sketches cause you can do so much with them and play around...You'll see so many different interpretations!!!

Yet another photo of my wedding...well I love orange and that kit from "Enjoy Scrapping" was full of yummy Glitz goodies and orange-olive colors which I LOVE!!! The kit is sold out but you can still find the papers and embellishments there!

The chipboard light is from "sfragidomania"

With this layout I am participating in "Scrapbookers Anonymous" challenge! All you have to do is create a stamped background  and use 3 stamped embellishments! Well, almost all of my background is stamped with Glitz stamps (letters and the Bird cage) and my 3 embellies are 1) the small bird in the cage 2) the heart which I stamped on a transparency and used it as a journaling spot 3) the flower and leaves, right below the heart.

And finally I am entering challenge #2 at Glitz designs!!! Make a cluster in your layout (layers)!

I hope you like my layout, I made it at a crop with some special friends and I had a lot of fun!!! It took me some hours to finish it know how crops are...LOL!!!

Have a nice creative week!!!
