Frosted designs: Friday challenge: "my favorite things"

Good afternoon all, 
It is friday, and it is time for the friday challenge at Frosted designs.
This time the challenge is hosted by Katie Hollister and her challenge is:

A song from the movie "the sound of music" called my favorite things.
This is the song:

Raindrops on ROSES and whiskers on kittens,

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen MITTENS;
BROWN PAPER  packages tied up with STRINGS;
These are a few of my favorite things.

CREAM-COLORED ponies and crisp APPLE strudels;
Doorbells and sleigh BELLS and schnitzel with noodles;
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their WINGS;
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with BLUE SATIN sashes;
SNOWFLAKES that stay on my nose and eyelashes;
SILVER-WHITE winters that melt into springs;
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites,When the bee stings,

When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my FAVORITE things,
And then I don't feel so bad. 
So the challenge this time is to use any combination of these words as part of your layout or project, at least 3 must be used.I have underlined 12 words since it is the 12th month of the year. For example, the color cream, Angel 'wings' and roses. I can already think of some yummy combinations!! Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create! 
This is my take on the challenge:

I used the following words
from the song:

Brown paper (behind the
WISH tag)





Thank you for passing by, have a great weekend!

Frosted designs: Angelic giftbox

 Hello everybody, 

With the spirit of the holidays in my mind, i created this altered matchbox. 
I am using this as a gift box for under the tree for christmas.
I really love shabby chic, its always very romantic and angelic. 

This is the front of the box:

And this is the back:

I used paper of the Delight 6 x 6 paper pad of prima marketing. 
Below are some close ups of all the tinny details that i have put on this box. 

The only thing that i need to figure out is what gift to put in the box? 
Any ideas?
I believe the box is a gift on it's own!

It's great to create your own gifts, packing and cards for the holidays, it gives  the extra personal touch.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day!

Scrapafrica: Snowflakes, Glitter and masking!

Good morning all, 

For the next two weeks we have the following challenge at Scrap africa:

Snowflakes, Glitter and Masking!

This is my take on the challenge:

Lots of layers in this layout. I used a winter picture of my friend roan from last year. 
As in Greece, there is not much snow where i live!

So how did i use all the challenge items:

Snowflakes: on the design paper, i used a snowflake diecut and added them all around the canvas and i ussed chipboard snowflakes.

Glitter: i used silver glitter on every part of the layout. 

Masking: i used a mask of on the design paper and canvas paper and after i sprayed blue/turquoise spray ink.

It was great to make this layout because i love these winter blue colors. 

thank you all for stopping by and dont forget to hop over to Scrap africa for some inspiration and to add your layout or project!!!
