Thinking about Purim

3 more weeks till Purim. I have to admit that since we moved to US, Purim is not so much fun. I am missing going to Adloyada and celebrating with family and friends. Maybe this year we need to make more efforts and find some community events here, where we live. Meanwhile I found some fun pictures from Purim 2001 and made a page for Crafting Jewish Style blog.

Supplies: patterned paper (Crafting Jewish Style), letter stickers (American Crafts), buttons (Foolala), pearls (Kaiser Crafts), die and die-cut machine (Lifestyle Crafts), border punch (Fiskars), butterfly punch (Martha Stewart), smooch spritz (Clearsnap)

I made the flowers using the tutorial here. To make my life easier, I used half circles and not full circles. Crafting Jewish Style paper had a cardstock quality, so it was too thick when I started from the full circle. Using bone folder also helped a lot. I used 2 new colors of Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer on the flowers and Cherry Ice on the butterflies.

We have a busy day today - dentist for the girls, art show at Ella's school, than Lila has her first babysitting job, finish packing and to bed. Tomorrow 6am Ofir and Lila fly out to Los-Angeles.
