I scrap therefore they remember

This page will be published in Scrapbook. com magazine October 2011 issue

This page was a kind of statement. Lots of people in Israel are not familiar wih a scrapbooking..
Yes, they love these digital wedding and Bar Mitzva albums- cream or balck pages with thousands of photos on every page and some photoshop tricks too, but scrapbooking as we understand it?
Titles, journalimg? No way!! And spending a fortune for what? For this fancy page nobody really look at for more than a second and even than- just at photo? And my family is not an exeption.. They just think mom is a bit crazy spending so much time and money doing this one single page- cute one, so what?Who needs it anyway? We are pretty glad with our Facebook page with 2000 of our " best" picks...
So this page is for them- my dear not understanding family- I scrap because I am your memory keeper, I scrap for you to remember and maybe 50 years from now my grand- grand children could read my thoughts and even to see my handwriting (I am prety sure nobody is going to handwrite in 50 years from now.. )
And this page was another kind of statement too: Irit can do a simple paperblocking page..
With a twist... As Irit can't do a simple page after all..
And so I did a huge letter I- for " me" in a title and for Irit as an artist adn this one took me 3 hours to do- all the page was an hour and a half mostly and it was so long as I don't use a trimmer, but a knife..
So here it is:
product on the page: Jullibean pp, Ac pp, J, Bowlin pp, ATD and Canson cardstock, Pink Paslee, MLS and MM lettering, distress inking, Maya road kraft envelope,Pressed petals metal piece,Webster page lace,Provo stamps, pens
And for the letter I:
Autumn leaves and Prima stamps, Prima fabric tag, crystals and flowers, MM brads, Heidi Swapp alphas, distress inks- 4-5 of them,TH acrylic fragment, some digi prints, Ek sticker, 3d glue, and from my vntag box- fabric titles from the outit tag, thread, tiny buttons,beaded semipretious stones.
And as for the challenges:
All about me ask for about me celebrate positive page- and think it's more than positive and I do celebrate my scrap addiction
Anything goes for Crafty Emma
