Keeping Memories









I remempered an unfinished LO that I had somewhere in my stash for months... Especially that ribbon at the bottom of the sketch and the circular position of the objects... I started it in a period that I was wondering how I started this hobby! 
This is how it looked in the begining...

and after some addings...


In the old photo from a Polaroid we are me, my sis and our father about 33 years ago... The fairytale and that picture are hidden in the back of all the objects...
The butterfly on the right is stamped on a piece of coffee filter, giving a smoother result...
I find that backround paper sooooo beautiful!

My apologies for any mistakes in the language once again!

Have a nice afternoon!

My best friend

After a lot of resettlements in my life since I was a kid, then for studies and after that for work, I have made a lot of friends in Greece, in several places. It was always a great thing for me to have some friends to share ideas and emotions or just have some fun... And there so many good and intersting people out there!
Well, with some of them I have lost contact for several reasons, or we communicate here and there...
But with some others we still keep in touch, and when ever I have the oportunity to meet them and hug them, I am soooo happy! And it's like we spoke yesterday, eventhough may have past months or years! Great feeling!
Since I moved here in Korinthia I met a girl who now is



I remember when I had just get into my new home in Loutraki feeling strange and so alone, and got a cold! We had just get known eachother and she came with a big plate with food on my door! So warm lady!
Now, we know eachother so good, that sometimes she says exactly what I have in mind, with the exact words!
We have a great communication - well except from that times that the one of us is complitly tired and we start talking the chinese language... She is so openmind person, great in her work as a teacher and as in charge of school programs and has usually that great smile... She can easilly focus and understand in matters of mind and heart. And I fill so comfortable with her, like she is relative...



Usually, we say that we will meet each other for one hour or two, we make coffee and start talking and talking and talking... for many many hours!!!



And most of all, she can bear with my humor and laugh, even usually is unprepared or black, and never ge misunderstood!!! I love that to people!!!
She is in my heart, and our Petroula's also!

Ok, Eva, my good friend, this is for you!
Wish this friendship lasts for many many years!


The basic colors - green and all the hue of lilac and perpl - are her favorites...

I made some washy tape for first time (put some on the right up corner) and done a lot of stamping. I also done some stencil on the corners of the yellow backround with perpl pen and then put let some watercolors to flow...  

A lot of handmade spiral flowers and a easy made pin...


The photo is taken after the baptism of Petroula out of the church in its beautiful yard. Thanks god, Eva had took her camera with her and took a lot of pictures! The original photo is this;


but I wanted to zoom and, the same time, to keep some of that gorgeous tree and lilac flowers. So I 've put the zoomed pic over the origine, if you noticed...

So, I participate in OUAS with the sketch and the word FRIEND and in Bird is The Word with the word REACH.

Have a beutiful Sunday!

Η μικρή Τίλντα στο λιβάδι...

Αυτό το σκετς της Puccarina πολύ μου τράβηξε την προσοχή για την απλότητά του, αλλά και τόση έμπνευση που χάρισε στην ομάδα του Get Creative... Δεν μπόρεσα να αντισταθώ, αν και έλεγα πως δε θα ξαναφτιάξω εύκολα κάρτα... Το αποτέλεσμα μου θύμισε εξοχή και λιβάδια, εξ ου και ο τίτλος! Να λοιπόν η Τίλντα η εξοχική (να την πω... μικρή χωριατοπούλα;)...


Τις λωρίδες τις έκανα κυματιστές, πράγμα που είχε μία μικρή δυσκολία στο να μην μένουν κενά, αλλά και να μη χαθεί το ακτινωτό του σκετς...
Η Τίλντα χρωματίστηκε με νερομπογιές, που πολύ μ' αρέσει τελικά να τις χρησιμοποιώ στις σφραγίδες... Ο φράχτης μου χρειάστηκε μια και πρόκειται για Τίλντα καθήμενη... Αν προσέξετε έκοψα τις ενδιάμεσες τάβλες... Κι αυτός χρωματίστηκε με νερομπογιές και λίγο κρακελέ λευκό εδώ κι εκεί...


Το sentiment εκτυπώθηκε στον υπολογιστή... Αν προσέξατε λευκές μισοσβησμένες κουκίδες πάνω του, είναι στάμπο με τη γόμα του μολυβιού σε λευκό μελάνι...


Έχω ένα θέμα με τα χρώματα αυτό το μήνα! Τα θέλω μπόλικα και παντού!

Φιλιά!

I am also participating in:
Just Magnolia - In the country
Floral Fantasies - Poppies

... and even more... break your usual limits and fly!



... Because you diserve to...








This is a page inspired by the word COLOR of Bird is the Word and at first based on Melenia' s sketch for Get Creative, but then got a little influence from My Creative Sketches (were I finally will not participate - very limiting rules)...

I love colors, and use them in my everyday life (can wear black only for a few hours...), but I didn' t expect that I would use so much color and make a page so... heavy and filled (mayby a little ethnic style too)! 

I took that picture of me by myself, trying to imagine that I 've grabed the tail of that kite and fly, and bearing in mind that some neighbor may be stearing at me and think that I got nut!!!  Couldn' succeed a better light, even though it was a great sun there... Well...


And then when I decided to break that frame, and put the pieces around, I saw my self like a superwoman and felt so free! Just to be a little funny!!!

Well, I wanted to spread some hope there!

So, today go and color your day and break those limits!!!

Here is my little monster showing her teeth this morning, while I was taking the above pictures!


Hugs!



P.S. Lena from Enjoy Scrapping had made a competition some weeks ago and my mini album won a sweet present! I want to thank you Lena!
