My (old) HomeTown lo כאן נולדתי, כאן נולדו לי ילדי



Thanks to my blogy friend Tesa, I came across this wonderful challenge over GCD Studios, where they've asked to scrap our hometown.
I used the sketch from creative scrappers:


I was born and raised in Haifa, and my kids were also born there. We moved from there 2 years ago, and we all still feel there at home, this is our hometown.
I'm not sure if and when I'll ever feel "hometown" where we're living right now. I still miss a lot my old home town.
The journaling says so, and I mentioned the view I had all my childhood and as a grown up woman - high green mountain, deep blue sea, etc.
The big letters of the title and the chipboards are all GCD Studio (some of them were dressed up with dp's scraps, to match the lo's colors. can you tell which one of them?...). I used acrylic paint and some rubons and stickers for the small letters of the title.
The photo was taken on one of the most beautiful places in my hometown. We've had a lovely saturday over there.

I'm entering this lo also for the following challenges:
how sentimental - #95 one stop craft
stitching - #37 pixie dust studio (mine is faux, arond the page and as a frame for the photo)
opposite - day 181 365 cards (not a card, but still it is opposite... the cool colors of this lo are totally opposite to the heat over here... and anyway, being a rebel is THE opposite way, isn't it? Okay, Rose & Gloria, I'd bet you'd say that making a lo is my usual way, and I should make a card, any card, to fit to Pam's opposite theme.. LOL)
fussy cutting - #18 just scraps (mine are the clouds)
park inspiration - #67 allsorts
anything goes - #1 crafty ema's (congrats on the new challenge blog!)

Thanks for stopping by!

באתר של GCD יש אתגר של לעצב דף על העיר שלי. בחרתי לעשות על עיר הולדתי, חיפה, ולא על המקום בו אנו מתגוררים כיום, כי ממרחק שנתיים מאז המעבר, אנחנו עדיין רואים בחיפה את ה-hometown שלנו.
התמונה צולמה בגן הפסלים בחיפה, מקום קסום בפני עצמו. התמונה מסמלת בעיני הרבה דברים שקשורים אצלי אסוציאטיבית בחיפה - הירוק של הכרמל, הכחול של המפרץ והים, ההר. הפינה הזאת קרובה מאד למקום אליו היה אבי ז"ל לוקח אותי בילדותי לראות את הזיקוקים בערב יום העצמאות. חיפה זה המקום בו נולדתי וגדלתי, והמקום בו הפכתי לאם ונולדו בה ילדי. הגעגועים עדיין רבים....

הדף הזה מקסים, התמונה עם הים ברקע וכל הפריטים והצבעים משתלבים נהדר. אהבתי גם את מה שכתבת על חיפה כי גם אני תמיד מתרגשת כשאני מבקרת באזור ילדותי.
שבוע נפלא ממני.
