Hello from Wisconsin!

Hello everyone! I am so excited to be part of the Crafting Jewish Style Design Team! Few words about me. My name is Maya. We moved from Israel to Wisconsin 7 years ago. I have two beautiful girls 12 and 9 years old and one adorable baby boy that just turned 2. I discovered scrapbooking shortly after me moved to US and now it is much more than just a hobby for me. It is my creative outlet and my passion.

I love using the beautiful CJS products! I reach for them when I am working with the pictures from our holidays and celebrations but not only. In this layout I used the Rosh Hashanah collection to scrap the pictures from our trip to the apple farm last fall. I sponged the background with white acrylic paint and layered the papers and the pictures on the top. I wanted to add more blue so I cut out the circle from one of the Hanukkah papers, punched holes along the edge and weaved the ribbon through the holes. I added a flower ribbon and alphas from my stash and viola - the layout is done.

Thank you!
