"Καλο Ταξιδι" & lucky # 7

Good afternoon all, 

It's already the 20th of July and that means that it is time for the Get Creative card sketch.

As mentioned earlier this month we are sponsored by

For my card i used the Pied De Poul as a back round and a Taxidi bingo card. 
 "Καλο Ταξιδι" in greek means have a good trip. I highlighted the # 7 on this card and it has the following meaning according to the internet:

Seven is a 'special', mystical number, the history of which goes way, way back.
In the 6th century Pope Gregory the Great defined a set of seven negative attributes that must be avoided. He instructed the best way to avoid these sins was to adopt seven positive attributes. The three Theological Virtues defined by St. Paul (faith, hope and love) added to the four Cardinal Virtues (prudence, temperance, courage and justice) give us
 the Seven heavenly virtues. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Life as a baby.......

Good afternoon all, 

The life of a baby consists of the following:


I think the picture speaks for it self, even a baby can get bored of it. 
This is baby Leo, born on the 28th of March, 2011.

I am entering this layout for the July 15th challenge of Once upon a sketch. I always check their blog for inspiration, because the DT team makes such beautiful layouts.
This is my take on the sketch:

Some close-ups of the details. 

This post is for my friend Gazel, leo's mommy. Although i might have not been in touch i do think of you, TG for FB so i can keep track of how fast leo is growing. Love ya!

Have a good day & thanks for stopping by.

Magnolia's for " X-Mas in July "

Good afternoon all, 

Current temperature in Athens, Greece ? Please see above as per google! Too hot and no wind. Why am i not at the beach? too crowded on a Saturday and i am not a big fan. Sorry! We still have to do the regular Saturday jobs but we might hit the swimming pool after. But i found some time to put up my magnolia's for this month. I decided to do "X-Mas in July" and i only made one card and the rest are.....boxes. All ideas are taken from a special edition "kadoosjes" ( = gift boxes in dutch) of paper & pictures. 

First my card, i made this for the weekly challenge of the official Magnolia inspiration challenge #6. But i was too late ... i forgot to enter it??

 The challenge was to make a dimensional scene.
 My scene is christmas with Tilda and a lot of gifts....

 Above is a few of my card when it is folded. 
Below is a few when the card is unfolded with the sun in the back round. 
I embossed the christmas tree and all stamps are colored with copic markers. 

Below is a few of the card side ways and you can see that it is a stair step card. 
And i took the pattern from the Magnolia challenge blog.

As i said before this is the only Magnolia card that i made for this month.......
but now i will show you my boxes. 

Mushroom box

This box looks like a mushroom, when you take of the lid you can see the box, i put some chocolates in it. Which are now melted by the sun...

Merry X-mas box

This box looks like a chewing gum box but i put a kit kat in it.

Secret box

This one looks like a card.......but when you take of tilda and open the sides it's a little secret box. 
It can be used for a "flat"gift. This box took some time because i had the dimensions wrong but eventually it worked out. 

Ok that was it for today........i am off to do our jobs and i think instead of the super market we will hide ourselves in the Cinema to see the new Harry Potter movie. The cinema will be empty and it has AC!! I know you all think i am crazy but ......... i am just not made for too much sun. 

Have a good weekend and enjoy.
Thanks for stopping by,
