"Checklist" - OUAS & CSI challenges

Hello again!

I decided to combine two GREAT challenges  which happen to work really good together at the moment!
I love these two challenge blogs because they urge you to do some journaling on your pages which I think is very important to scrapbooking! It is all about preserving our memories and the story behind the photos right???
So I am using sweet Nadia's sketch from "Once Upon A Sketch" and the theme "Summer".


And I am using the colors from "CSI" 


CSI
Color: I have used all of the colors plus a little orange which does not cover more than 10% of my layout.
Evidence: 
  • wood/woodgrain (wooden ice cream & heart)
  • liquid medium (paint, mist, etc.)
  • distressing
  • Use repetition of an element.(circles,flowers, pom-pom,stamps)
  • circles 
  • Use a solid background 
  • Include parallel lines (The pom-pom trims).
Testimony: 
  • Document a vacation.
  • Inspiration Words: vacation -- use these as inspiration for your journaling
And this is my take! 
It is my DD Nefeli and Lena's (my friend) DS Nicolas in Samos last year!



This Purple Pumpkin button was a perfect match for this layout!


The cutest little Purple Pumpkin pirate!!!


Here you can see a few PP tickets!



I have used the "summer papers" kit from Enjoy Scrapping!


Materials used:
Papers: Echo Park (Summer papers by Enjoy Scrapping)
Flowers, pom-pom trim, bling: Prima
Buttons, tickets: Purple Pumpkin
Stamps: Glitz & (I will edit later..sorry)
Chipboard: Imaginarium Designs
Mist: Tattered Angels
Gesso, acrylic paint: Ranger

Thank you for visiting my blog!!!
See you soon!!

Καλημέρα Βίκυ μου! Άλλη μια φοβερή σύνθεση με φανταστικά χρώματα κι έξυπνες τεχνικές! Πάντα κάτι έχουμε να μάθουμε από σένα! Όσο γι αυτό που με ρωτάς για το chipboard, πλάκα κάνεις?! Αφού είχα φτιάξει ένα κιτ στα βιαστικά πριν φύγω για τη μαμά μου, έφτασαν και τα χαρτόνια. Έτσι είπα στον Κώστα να μου τα φέρει και με ό,τι είχα, δηλαδή gesso, mist turquoise blue & Mister Huey’s opaque white το έφτιαξα : ) φιλάκια και κάποια στιγμή θα βρω τους ρυθμούς μου. Πολλά πολλά συγχαρητήρια για όλες τις επιτυχίες και διακρίσεις σου Βίκυ, μας κάνεις υπερήφανες και το αξίζεις κοριτσάκι μου!!!! GO VICKY GO!!!!!!
