You are not that beautiful when you cry...

Here I am, about 4 years old, crying... When ever I cried, my dad used to sing to me an Israeli song which says: "You are not that beautiful when you cry". It never stopped me crying...  

The challenge Fern gave at Frosted Designs was to make a"girly" los, with a twist - to use 1 item not found in a scrapbook store or scrapbook/craft department.

Well, with all the pearls, lace, flowers etc., I guess my lo is quite girly... :))). As for the twist - I used a zipper:

BUT!! I think that the cork flower on the right bottom corner is something you really can't find in a scrapbook store/department, cause I've made it out of a wine bottle cork... if you look close, you can still see the hole of the opening.

There's a lot of handmade embellishments - the pearls necklace, the kraft flower, the old sheet buttons and even the kraft flourishes! Here are some close ups on the embellishments:

And a close up on the tearing and distressing:

The sketch is # 155 Creative Scrappers (I flipped it):

I'm entering this lo also for the following challenges:
distressing - 2 sisters
swirls - crafts and me
beautiful things - ssic
distressed/vintage - creative craft
buttons & bows (plus kraft) - the kraft journal (my kraft is the matting of the photo, the small flower and the flourishes)
let's get messy - the paper variety (I used TH distress inks)
create your own flowers - # 3the paper trail makers (the cork flower, the kraft flower)
make your own flourish - #2 the paper trail makers
anything goes - simonsays stamp and show
cute & girly - my mum's craft shop
girlie - incy wincy
anything goes - by the cute and girly

Thank you for taking the time and visiting my blog!

דף מעוצב עם תמונה שלי בערך בגיל 4, בוכה. אבי ז"ל נהג לשיר לי כשבכיתי את השיר של אריק איינשטיין "כשאת בוכה את לא יפה". זה אף פעם לא גרם לי להפסיק לבכות, ההפך הוא הנכון...
הדף הוכן, בין היתר לאתגר של Fern, ב-Frosted Designs, שביקשה להכין דף של "בנות", אבל עם דרישה נוספת - שיהיה בדף משהו שלא ניתן למצוא אותו בחנות/מחלקה של סקראפבוקינג/יצירה. אני השתמשתי ברוכסן ובפרח שהכנתי מפקק שעם של בקבוק יין.

תודה על תשומת הלב והמשך חג עצמאות שמח!

Oh, my goodness, this is just gorgeous! I love, love, love the design and adore all your sweet handmade embellishments and tiny details. The blocked patterned paper is so eye catching. Totally adore the pearl strand and all the flowers, especially the cork one. And WOW on your title work with the zipper. Thanks so much for sharing this beauty with us at The Kraft Journal.
