Passover pictures and layout

This year Passover Eve was also the last day of school. We decided that kids can start their spring vacation one day earlier. On Tuesday we packed our new minivan and as soon as the girls came from school we left the house on our way to New Jersey. After 16 hours drive (I just don't know how Ofir is doing that!) we arrived to our friends Miri and Yuval. Just in time to celebrate the Seder together. It was a great trip with lot of playing time, some sightseeing and just a nice feeling of togetherness that only old friends can give you.

I have lots of pictures to go through and sort but here are some from the Passover Seder

Looking at the pictures I realized that I didn't scrap the last Passover. We celebrated with another friends here in WI. I made a simple page with a minimal journaling and let the pictures tell the story. I used Jenni Bowlin March 2008 kit. I like how the blue, cream and gold colors match the warm colors of the pictures and the plates. I really wanted to use the big orange flowers that came with the kit but I felt they were just too much. After trying different things I cut the flower in half and each half I rolled around itself and wrapped with a strip of patterned paper. Now it looked like a gentle spring flower and was just perfect for the layout.

For that Passover Seder I made the place cards and the menus. I will keep the menu in the separate 6x12 page protector between the pages.
I also used my new Fiskars Cameo Appearance squeeze punch and matching stamps.

  1. Happy Passover!!
    The pictures and layout are wonderful! I love how you used so many pictures and yet it doesn't seem overload.

  3. Love the LO! And how smart to cut the flower in half - very springy and not overpowering.

    Gotta ask - what's the food item? It looks like lettuce with something in it... but what?
