THANKS 4 ALL- ITSF THEME






THIS LO WAS PUBLISHED ON SNR JANUARY 2010 ISSUE

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 lo was done for IF THE SHOE FITS DT challenge of " thankfullness" and it was my first time to use texure paste on the paper( not on wood or glass) and I also used this crackle paint too and decided to keep the buttos on their original package backing.
And there are other challenges this lo was done for:
Thankfulness- for Apron strings
Thanks -for PAPER CUTZ
Thankfull- for 2 RED BANANS
Buttons- for Gingersnaps
Metals- for CRAFTY CREATIONS- silver buttons are metal
Sparkling- for Creative inspirations
ART inspiration for ARTASTIC : roses, great woman, vintage look

Cover inspiration for Groovy covers

Poem inspiration( THANKS FOR ALL in tha poem)- for Scrap the poetry
