Purim layout

Did you know that Purim is 3 weeks away? Time to start thinking about those costumes! I have to admit that it was a while since I went to Purim party for adults. Probably the last time it was on 2001. We still lived in Israel at that time. It was a big office party. I was 5 months pregnant with my second daughter and that explains why I don't remember much details about the party. My husband said that the face painting was done at the party and I have a distant memory of a mechanical bull..... I think it was a cowboy themed party. My husband Ofir is dressed up as a gardener (The back of his shirt says "Ofir's Gardens"). I am not sure what I was supposed to be. I probably just picked a dress that fit my 5 months pregnant belly. It is possible that I attempted to wear wings, but I am not so sure.

I found perfect papers from the Crafting Jewish Style Passover collection for my layout. The earth tones of greens, browns and pinks matched my pictures. I used border punch to add some interest to the page. I made 3 folded flowers from the striped paper. I sprayed the flowers with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

The butterflies are punched out from the same paper that I used for the journaling block but they are sprayed with Cherry Ice Smooch Spritz. The color matches perfectly the pink stripes in the patterned paper.

Do you dress up for Purim? Do you have some fun layouts to share? Please do!


  1. I don't think I have dressed up anytime in the last 15 years. I don't have to. I have kids. I just posted last years Purim photos.

  2. 3 weeks away?? How can it be so soon? I appreciate the heads up though! I'm going as Minnie Mouse this year!

  3. The kids keep changing their minds about they'll be-guess I'll be up late the night before arranging costumes!
