Baby Yali and baby Ella

Few months ago I made a layout based on a sketch from my local scrapbooking store. I used Kaiser Crafts baby papers mixed with some old Jenni Bowlin papers. The cute baby in the pictures is my nephew Yali. We live so far away from all our nieces and nephews, I treasure every picture I get.
Supplies: cardstock (Bazill), patterned paper (Kaiser Crafts, Jenni Bowlin), chipboard letters (Lil' Davis), chipboard frame (Lil' Davis), raindots (Cloud 9), letter stickers (Sassafras Lass, Making Memories), rub-ons (Jenni Bowlin), die (Lifestyle Crafts), jewels (Heidi Swapp)

My layout won the sketch contest so when I came to pick it up I had a prize package waiting for me - Cosmo Cricket Upcycle paper pack, yummy green lime thickers and a package of Jillibean Soup sugar picks

I thought this was very generous prize and couldn't wait to take everything out of the package and start playing. Here is the first layout that I did. I love those pictures of me and baby Ella in her wrap. I never took this wrap off. It was always on me, ready to cuddle my sweet baby. Look at her feet. Ain't they the cutest?  The picture on the left also has our cat Barsik. We have only few pictures of him, so I was glad to have this picture scrapped and added to my albums.

Supplies: patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket), thickers (Anerican Crafts), pins (Jillibean soup), hearts (Colorbok), border punch (Fiskars), scallop punch (Fiskars)

I spent most of the day today grocery shopping and cooking. Ella bought American Test Kitchen game for her Nintendo DS (don't ask me why) and we tried a new recipe for the beef stew. I also made a yummy grapefruit and pomegranate salad and shared the recipe on the Crafting Jewish Style blog. What are you cooking? Anything interesting? Let me know!

P.S. I was asked if I can read comments in Hebrew. Yes I do. And in Russian :) I love reading your comments so feel free to leave them in any language that feels comfortable. I always try to go back and visit the blogs of my commenters. I can do that only if your profile is public, otherwise I don't have any ways of contacting you.

  1. Beautiful layouts!! I love how you did the title on the first layout!

  2. יופי, הרבה יותר קל לי בעיברית :-)
    הדף הראשון מקסים, איזה כיף שזכית!
    הדף השני נהדר, את כ"כ יפה!!!
    ולגבי בישולים - זה לא אני...
    בעלי מבשל :-)

  3. This is just wonderful! I used to love carrying my baby that way too, she looks so snuggly!

  4. Congrats on the prize! Both layouts are so sweet, especially that tiny little baby.
