Irit is here with my new scrapbooking page with a story.
I was born and grown up in the former USSR and lilacs were the very common there. I've seen them on my way to anywhere and the smell was just delicious. I still dream lilacs, but there are no such here in Israel (I think they need the cool weather ). So last year during our Armenian vacation I found those flowers of my childhood. The smell, the colors, the texture- everything was so much in my memories. So I began to take photos. And then asked my DH to take some of mine within t hose lilacs. He said that he is not a good photographer and it happened to be true. No good photos of me with those lilacs. But then I am a good photographer most of the time and his photos were just great. And then I got this most gorgeous LILACS stamp set from Inspired by Stamping new January release and this lilac page was born.
As the paper pads released by IBS were a bit late for this post,I decided to make my own patterned paper with Lilacs stamped and colored over the pale almost solid paper and I really love result.
One single image was colored , cut out and glued over the lower corner.
Then I discovered this beautiful sentiment in the same new set and wanted to add it over my page. But it was with " wishing you" before " a beautiful...", so I just cut it as seen.
Some other embellishments were added, a title was made and my Lilacs will be kept in an album. Is there a way to add some smell to our scrapbooking pages? I would really love the smell my childhood again.
