I forgot to ad the color I added to the palette, but at last I decided to stick with the pale tones (which I adore)and my added color was just a pale violet, so sorry I forgot to mentioned it in the description, I hope is fine anyway.

Cleaning up my desk this afternoon, I came across a quote I had copied down a while ago. I thought appropriate to share here, since R3 challenge was just that.. a real challenge!

"Wise are the ones who persevere in tough times, knowing that quitting is not an option."
-Sally Huss

Karen, I totally second that quote, I changed my mind so many times when I started to work with this kit, my first choice was something very similar about the theme of your fabulous kit, I made a kit based in my grandparent's and all their sisters, brothers, parent's, cousins and so many images I have about their looses in the Holocaust, but it was such a sad kit, because it was about also letters, but letters of despair, asking for survivors, and knowing they lost so much family, so then I completly changed my mind and started a whole new one based in my own roots, my country, old newspapers in Uruguay and stuff I collected a long time ago when I had a great camera, now I don't have one, so it was very hard for me and quiting was on my thoughts, but then I realized I didn't need the camera, I just had to play with what I already created even when it was old and I hate it, and make something new, so TYSM for sharing this, I was feeling really blue since this round started, so TYSM again.

Kaklei, I hope you will keep your Holocaust kit together, and make it available to buy somewhere on the web. The horrors of war are a part of all of our history, and although is is sad and depressing, many of us have family stories to tell of that time, and of course, no photos. The survivors were lucky to keep the bare necessities.

In war, everyone looses.

I am loving all of the kits so far during this contest, and wish all of the contestants the best of luck!!

Oh Hun, I deleted most of it, but I made a promise to my parent's long time ago to make a really good one , so I promise I will make one, the problem is that I would like to make it as real as possible and that means with Yiddish word art , lyrics, sayings, songs, and also a lot from Poland, Germany and the countries my family scape to which are Uruguay, Argentine, Israel and their traditions, so is a real mix of stuff that I have to order property, but I will, I promise.

Hope it's ok that I used the preview from last time with some alterations to show only the four papers. If it's not ok, I can change the preview.

Hi ladies! Glad the quote is serving as inspiration for you. I am such a quote fantatic! They are just such an easy, concise way to express my thoughts and feelings.
Karen - I am glad you will still make your other kit. I truly think it would be marvelous, both for you and your customers.

I have a question...
I don't have any vintage newspapers... but I had one from last week and I scanned in the tv listings to make an overlay. Would that be considered okay? I don't know where else to get something for my newspaper paper in my mini.

That should be perfectly fine.... I'm thinking she wants a vintage feel, but not required to have actual vintage "stuff" to use... age the paper once you apply the overlay and you should be good to go!
