I scrapped!!

It's been 2 months!

Found this vintage photo-treasure in an old magnetic album.

I wonder why they called those adhesive page albums magnetic....

but anyway!


It's of my Grandma, knitting slippers.

If we were Ukranian we'd have called them kopchies.

At the lake, under the trees while everyone frolicked happily on the beach in front of her.

No, that's not where we'd call slipper kopchies.

That's where this photo was taken.
The journaling says: This is what I remember about my Grandma. After a life of turmoil, she loved quietness. A ball of yarn, some knitting needles or a crochet hook and a shady spot under the trees where she could survey her realm... This is all it took to bring her happiness.

I kind of get that actually.

Used this sketch from Sassy Lil Sketches:

And this color inspiration from Color Combos Galore:
