Introducing Irit.......

We are very lucky to have Irit as a guest designer here on Tando Creative.  You are going to love the work of this very talented artist. 

Hi !! I am IRIT and I am from sunny ISRAEL.
I am very glad to be a part of this great blog DT and hope to do my best and make everyone at home proud of me as I am the only Israeli papercrafter who made into DT of any foreign blog so far.
In my " real life" I am a dentist and for last 3 years I do it as a part time job because I need some extra time to run my Israeli online scrap shop and I have a lot of fun doing something else after 25 years of teeth.
I am married for 27 years to retired high police officer and the full time family cook these days.
I am a mom to 4 grown ups : 2 sons and twin daughters and the empty nest is probably the main reason for my obsession for crafting - finally I have some time for myself
My oldest son is an army officer and recently married, a second one is " a world traveler" - for last 3 years after his army service he is out of Israel for at least 9 months a year. This year he lives in Spain and works there.
My twins live in USA for 2.5 years after their army service (we all do it here for 2 or 3 years) after they traveled all over the world ,but in 2 weeks they'll be home for college.
I need to say that I am totally addicted to crafting since I was a little girl.
For many years it was polymer clay and jewelry making, but after I've seen scrapbook LO for the first time in my life ( only 5 years ago during my visit to USA) I understood finally that I am in love with paper .
Today I mostly scrap and do altered art and less a cardmaker, but I love it all and hope to show you all my sides here.
And finally my other addiction is..... folk dancing!!
So if I am not in my crafting room- I am probably dancing.
If you want to see a bit of my work you can visit my blog- and there is a translator on it- so see you there too

Here are the first 2 layouts from Irit, aren't they gorgeous. 
The first uses our bird cage and cartoon bird. 
The second, our corners flourish and cloud trees.....fabulous work.

Welcome Irit, lovely to see your gorgeous LOs here! I love the texture you added to the trees on the second one with the seed beads and the way you used the cage as a mask first on the top one - great stuff!
