On this scrapbook page I used one of the flower embellishments that I made. As you see, I fashioned the petals from scraps of patterned cardstock and the leaves from corrugated cardboard. I used a tiny button stamp to create the center of the flower.
This page is entitled ".ru". You know how Canadian web addresses end in .ca, and French web addresses end in .fr? Well Russian web addresses end in, you guessed it, .ru. My computer expert husband tells me that these thingies are called top level domains. No matter what you call them, I thought that .ru would be a fun, different, twenty-first century name for this scrapbook page.
The journaling on the page tells how much it means to me to share bits of Russian culture with my son. In the photos he is standing by a replica Siberian mammoth dig (top photo) and a replica traditional Russian cottage called an izba (bottom photo). These photos were taken at one of our local zoos, which has a whole Russian section. Since an actual trip to Russia is not feasible for us right now, this is the next best thing. Hope you've enjoyed seeing the page!
