Green apples of my childhood

This page was published in April  issue of Scrapbooking. com magazine
When I was a little girl, living on Russia, we spent our summer vacation in the country side. I remember those green apples we picked from trees and the taste of them,  even no washed. For 40 years in Israel I never found this same apple taste (also I didn't try too hard). Last July we  went to a short vacation in Georgia (the county that was a part of a former USSR, not a USA state) and there they were: my childhood green apples.

So this page, made with Simple Stories products , is all about those memories. And yes, sometimes  you can scrap apples  or watermelons or strawberries if they are your own  precious memories.
ThenI decided to make another page- with very similar photos and papers, but in this clean and simple style, using Quick Quotes sketch.
It's not a double page, just 2 pages made in very different styles and with same mood.
