"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!

Καλημέρα Βίκυ! Τέλεια είναι η σύνθεση σου, φοβερή!!! Και το splattering με εντυπωσίασε και μόλις το έβαλα κι εγώ σε μια μου σύνθεση! (Αλήθεια πως το έκανες εσύ? Είναι Τέλειο!!!) Σε ευχαριστώ και πάλι στην την έμπνευση! Καλή επιτυχία πάντα σου εύχομαι! Φιλάκια

And SO well deserved Vicky! We make sure, as a Design Team, to look at each and every entry! I can tell you that it takes most of us about 1-2 hours to decide on the voting because of so many wonderful entries. Your name was repeatedly on everyones list so you were indeed a stand out! CONGRATULATIONS! You are indeed helping put Greece on the (scrapping) map! LOL!

By the way I was at that exact spot in Rome in 2001..When where you there? I was in Greece too in 2001 for almost 3 months with Sam. How I wish I had discovered you all then LOL!
