Another layout just landed in my in-box from.......

Irit Shalom - Thanks 4 All



Here is a bit of information on Irits layout........

We don't celebrate Thanks giving in Israel as it is an American holliday, but we
do say " thanks you" to the people we appriciate. So this lo is my huge " Thanks for all" for my grandma Fruma- she's going to be 97!! years old in 2 weeks.
She is an amazing woman- and my journaling around the lo is all about it.
She was born in Russia in 1912- so is actually living after Russian tzar ( king), Bolshevic revolution, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, world war 2,natzi ocupaton, Stalin
black 50-s and a few of Israeli wars too..
I wouldn't graduate from dental school if she was not taking a full care of my oldest son- her great grand son and than kept to do the same with my second one to let me work full time job for years. And with my twins too- but than it was less as she was a bit old..
So thank you for all my dear grandma!!

THIS IS MY CONTRIBUTION OF MY 97 YEARS OLD GRANDMOTHER AND THE INSPIRATION WAS A GREATWOMAN- ROSES- VINTAGE LOOK...

Hey Irit, Glad this months challenge gave you some inspiration for this lovely piece on your Grandmother. It's hard to believe she is 97, she looks mucher younger and quite healthy. I love your bling, butterfly and assorted vintage buttons. the aqua color on the grey really stands out. Well done! - Cheers Shazza
