I can't believe it has been a month since I've blogged!!! I guess I didn't have all that much to say (yeah right, those who know we a little bit by now are shaking their heads in disbelief LOL).

I do have a lot to show you though. These last weeks I have been playing with the Kreatorville Krafts February kit, and I've been loving every minute of it. Following LO's have all been made exclusively with kit products, except for the painting materials and stitching threads.

Moments like these melt my heart: Yannis helping Chloë with her homework. I'm sure every mother would appreciate quite, peaceful, heartwarming moments like this ... these are the moments to remember!

I outlined some of the circles with a black marker and painted them with Making Memories Ticled Pink glitter paint, which is also included in the kit!

Pictures of us taken during our vacation last month. I myself am not in pictures very often, and when I am, more often than not I feel I look so bad in it that I can't resist the urge to push the "delete" button LOL. I WAS pleased with these pics of me/hubby and the kids though, so it deserved a pretty and happy LO!

I finally made another page for our wedding album ... we've been married for almost 12 years now and this is my third page LOL. I'm hoping to have it finished before Kurt retires ... For those who are wondering about that strange title ... I've explained it in my journaling.

"Has anyone ever had a less romantic first wedding dance? We had originally chosen "Keep on Loving You" by Reo Speedwagon, but there was no CD-player present. So, after having waited in vain for an appropriate song, we decided there and then to have our first dance to the next song that would be played ... and this was it ... "It's Now or Never". Not exactly our first choice, let this be known! Ah, let's take some comfort from the fact that we might have started out "wrong", but we're still going strong..."

The sad part was, I actually like most of the Elvis Presley songs. My parents were huge fans (they even had a huge pic of him in their bedroom!!!!) so I grew up with his songs. But ever since I can remember, I have hated "It's Now or Never" (I also hate "Love me Tender" btw). That man has sung so many gorgeous songs, so why oh why did they play that particular song LOL???? Ah well, we did have a good laugh out of it... Oh, and if you're wondering why there wasn't a CD-player present ... we were married in Crete, and there was a life band playing mostly Greek music ...

This is the only page I didn't use paint on LOL. I'm following Marit's art journal workshop at the moment, and I'm having a hard time switching from art journaling to scrapbooking ... I seem to feel the need to put paint on every LO I make now LOL. This definitely isn't my usual style, but I do like this page. I guess this mostly has to do with the pic of my two beautiful girls ... I just love that picture. I knew it would turn out great as soon as I took it! They can fight like you wouldn't believe (oh yes, punches are thrown back and forth ...), but there also the best of friends, and I think this pic truly shows how close they are, how much they love each other.

This has to be my favorite project made with the february kit! At first I didn't have a clue what to do with all the buttons, but once this idea popped inside my head, I just knew this would turn out to be a fun page. I've tried to represent her sparkling personality ... Christina was such a fun child, always laughing, never bad tempered, and she had the cutest giggle which made everyone around her smile. Though she does have a bad temper every now and again these days, she still has this sparkling personality which makes her loved by most people.

Though, like I said before, all LO's have been made with the february kit products, I still have supplies left to make a few other projects!!!

And remember, because I'm on the Kreatorville Krafts DT and I receive a monthly kit, there's still some room left in my package to include some kits for Belgian or Dutch ladies who might be interested in purchasing the kit, which makes the shipping costs fairly cheap! Should you be interested in the kit, just send me a mail to or to the boss lady Keandra to

I know this has been a picture heavy post, but I also wanted to take the time to thank Mirjam again for this gorgeous RAK she sent me for commenting on her 100th post. Look at all this yumminess she sent me!

And she also included a beautiful handmade card for me, which I thought was soooooo sweet, thanks Mirjam, you're a sweetie and I appreciate it!

Isn't it pretty?????
