More Grassroots, but first let me tell you how this project came about. My friend, Lisa asked me to pick up Sizzix's file folder die-cut (designed by my friend Nora Lee Peterson!) at A.C. Moore one day. They didn't have it so that led me to my LSS, Great Scraps where I found a Colluzle file folder template. Now that I've gotten over my Colluzle fear I decided to make a mini album using the file folders that would fit inside the Grassroots platform box.
The theme came about because everytime I'm asked to create a page or a class for a publication or a crop people automatically assume because I'm African-American that I can whip up a Kwanzaa related project. So when DIY asked me to do a Kwanzaa project I got over my anger and decided to think out of the box (or what I could put in the box as it turns out) about how does Kwanzaa affect my life.
I don't celebrate Kwanzaa, but I'm very aware of it and it's history. I've even attended some celebrations. I looked back through a years worth of photographs and picked out photos that were representative of the principles, and there you have it a Kwanzaa mini-album.
