Happy "greek "easter........



Good evening all, 
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend? 
Here in greece, the sun has arrived.....not that it ever leaves the country but summer is around the corner. Yes summer, this year we just skip the spring part. This year greek ortodox easter is very late, the 1st of may so therefor for the Scrapafrica moodboard challenge i made this easter card 




The main colors of the moodboard are blue and green. 
I used chipboards from wycinanka for this card, an easter egg and some flower chipboard. 
It is just lovely chipboard to work with and most of the times i leave them as they are. 
On this card i did both: the easter egg is covered with embossing powder and the flowers on the back ground are natural. 



Just a simple natural card! I hope you will join our challenge it's a lovely color mix. 

Thank you for passing by and have a lovely weekend.

Back in Craftland......

Hello to you all, 

It's been a while! Life is busy and sometimes you just need to take a break. 
Which i did from crafting, it was the last thing on my mind but i pushed myself to get 
back on my craft horse so here i am with a challenge for  Scrapafrica sketch challenge:


I made an altered box and matching card:


In order to get myself in the mood i did some paper shopping, not that i needed any but just to get in the mood. And the little purchase boost up my creativity. The paper i used is from kaisercraft, 
i love the color combination ( black, turquoise and light green )


On this close up picture you can see the details on the box, i dug in to my embellishements and added them all together. I used the sprays of 13@rts to accent the colors. 


As you can see on the box and card i used chipboard of Wycinanka and Scrapiniec. I am in love with both companies, their chipboards can be used in so many ways. ( also an addition to my little purchase, wink wink)


I believe that on both projects you are able to see the sketch, i tried to copy it as much as possible. 
It was a great first project to make after such a while not doing anything. 

So get you inspiration on Scrapafrica, all the lovely talented ladies have mady so many nice things 
to give you and idea.

I want to thank denise for keeping me on the team. 

thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend,

Scrap africa: Moodboard

Good Evening all, 

At scrap africa today we have a lovely moodboard for your inspiration. 


I made a card for this moodboard. Inspired by planes, the states and some of the colors. 
This is my card:

I used a project life card that i found in my stash and pin pointed one of my favorite 
cities in the world, New York. 

This card is layered up in 6 layers.  In the picture above and below you can see the details. 


Love, love, love this city. I have been in every single season and it's lovely in everyone off 
them but i most likely loved the winter / christmas season.  


have a look at the Scrap africa site, all the lovely ladies have made several projects for you inspiration. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.

Time flies............. Scrap africa

Hello to all, 

Hope you are all well! I am back in town or should i say i am trying to be. I have been out of the scrap scene for the last 7 months. My life has changed 360 with the birth of our beautiful baby boy. Ah well baby?? it goes so fast soon enough he will go to college. After mastering to be a mother, or a mother in training so many new things come my way on a daily basis. I have passed the sleepless nights.....you get used to it and suddenly it changes. He sleeps from 9pm onwards and now i have all this time on hand. I will not lie not every night is the same, sometimes he sleeps trough sometimes he will wake up every hour. Comes with the job, i will not complain it is the most beautiful gift that god has given us and i thank him everyday. 

So here is my page for Scrap africa, its a sketch challenge.


So scrapbooking? do i know what it means................as trends change so fast i made this page without looking anywhere for inspiration. I let my imagination go on its own. I have to get my groove on again but i have to say that it is lovely to have that "little me time"again. Who cares if its at 2 am at night, piece and quiet together with some sprays, paint, paper and embellishments. I will pass by all of you scrappy friends!
 its been too long but i am back

The Sketch:



These pictures were taken when i was 8 1/2 months pregnant. T
he nursery was ready and we thought lets take some funny pictures.
 

Loved most of my pregnancy time. At the beginning it was just awful, the toilet bowl and i were the best of friends. And finally i got that diet that i always wanted but never succeeded until now. 


Well i am getting my groove back. It was lovely to play around again with my sprays etc...
We all know the drill you have two weeks to upload your project and this weeks sponsor is:


Have a good day!
