Mazel Tov!

I made this layout for the PageMaps contest. I thought it will be nice to take just few pictures from the Huppah that symbolize the ceremony - the wine and the blessings, the Ketubah, the ring and the glass breaking.
The paper is by Making Memories , Creative Imaginations and ChatterBox from the Jenni Bowlin December kit. The rubons are by Pink Paisley from the same kit. The journaling and the doves stamps are by Jenni Bowlin. Lettler - Heidi Swapp. I used the new Fiskars XL scalloped heart punch and the L heart punch with the matching stamps. I finished with some stickles on the paper swirls and dove wings.

Random thoughts

On our recent shopping trip Lila picked a dress from Children's Place. It looked strange until I realized that it is a maxi dress. Few days ago at the mall I noticed that practically all stores are full of maxi dresses. Unbelievable. I thought it's kind of funny to see this fashion comeback.

This is my last favorite lo. I used the sketch from the Coordinates Collections and one of the Jenni Bowlin kits. The butterflies are painted with the Glimmer Mist. You don't see the sparkle on the photograph but it turned out very pretty. If the journaling doesn't make sense you probably never watched the MasterCard commercials.

This simple layout is based on Fiskars March layout sketch. Lil' Davis chipboard, Cloud 9 raindots, Making Memories letters and the baby is mine :)

Last week post

It is warming up! Now that the spring is officially here we can hope that we will not see any more snow this year (maybe just once or twice LOL)
Last Sunday was nice and sunny but on the chilly side - notice the coats we are wearing below.
But Monday was much warmer and Tuesday was just awesome! No coats or soaks needed awesome!

Eli is 6 months old :) He started to show some interest in food. The two little pearls that are showing in his mouth make him chew on everything he can grab - toys, spoons, stroller, his and not only his shoes.

I tried to upload a video here, but my laptop really doesn't want to cooperate. Meanwhile 4 days past since I started this post so I will just hit publish and will work on my videos later.

2 more layouts

I know, my post titles are super creative LOL
Pink Persimmon (what a cute name!) posted a Spring Fever Challenge on their blog. I started to think about how I miss spring and about the cute mushrooms stamps I ordered from them few weeks ago. I had a vision of a mushroom forest, I run to my files where I keep the scanned old negatives and found this adorable photo of Lila that was taken exactly 9 years ago. Here is my little pumpkin in her first Purim costume.
Cosmo Cricket, Scenic Route and Creative Cafe paper, Pink Persimmon stamps, Cloud 9 chipboard letters, the butterfly and the date tag are from one of the Jenni Bowlin kits. The top right corner is punched with Read Between the Vines corner border punch.
And because I don't like to waste photo paper I always print 5x7 photos by two. I picked this cute photo of Eli with his great aunt and used sketch #5 from 52 sketches 52 weeks

All products are from Jenni Bowlin July 08 kit. I only added the blue journaling stickers that are also by JB and the Kraiser Crafts pearl. The photo mat corners are done with Pearls of Wisdom Fiskars squeeze punch.

2 layouts

I found this cool website with sketches. It is called 52 sketches 52 weeks. There is a new sketch every week and I picked two that I really liked.
This layout is based on sketch #7. I used Basic Grey papers and Lil' Davis frosty letters and glitter chipboard. I also used Fiskars squeeze punches, Martha Stewart gems and some sparkling fibers.
This layout is based on sketch #4. Eli was deeply interested in the luggage tag attached to his car seat. I decided to keep it and use it to make a ruffle boarder for my layout. The journaling lines are stamped with a cardboard edge.
Heidi Swapp and Crate Paper pp, Basic Grey sticker letters, Making Memories rub-ons, stickers and metal clip. The cute dots are by Pebbles.

And we are back!

Phew, I didn't blog for so long! I have lots of catch up to do. Let's get started!

The next day after Lila and me came back from Colorado we were on the flight to Israel. As expected it was long and exhausting experience but everything was forgotten as soon ad we entered the arriving hall atthe airport and saw my sister and my dad and Ofir's parents.

We had just one day to get adjusted to the time difference before the wedding.

The wedding was lovely. It reminded me the times when every few months we were invited to a wedding. We went to them all first as a dating couple, than as married couple and than with baby Lila. 10 years past ... Lila is not a baby but a lovely young lady. But what's that?? I have another baby. Life is full of surprises :)

I just love this photo of them! The photo is by professional photographer. (Note to myself - find his name and edit this post)

Before we left to Colorado I managed to finish this frame with the wedding invitation. Layers of mod-podged Heidi Grace paper and handmade ribbon flowers. I made a simple card to go with the frame.

I will post few more pictures from the wedding and from the trip in the next few days.
