My Shabbat Girls

Hi Everyone! 

It's Julie and it's my turn to post my latest layout.  With all the projects, layouts and cards we do using our terrific Crafting Jewish Style papers, there's also lots of scraps.  Well, I've got lots of scraps since I save all the bits and pieces because I never know what it can be used for.  I've also been thinking about doing something with all the strips and this is what I came up with.  On some level, it might seem a little busy with lots of colors but I thought my pictures had some bright colors and my girls were wearing stripes and polka dots.  Luckily, a lot of our CJS papers have stripes and polka dots.  What I also like about this is that I used pieces from all three paper lines so while each line has it's own unique style (Hanukkah, Rosh Hashanah and Pesach), they all still can be mixed and work together. 

These are photos when my daughters were Shabbat girls at their pre-school.  The journaling reads "Celebrating Shabbat in your Teddy Bears class.  We light candles, drink grape juice from our kiddush fountain and ate yummy, fresh baked challah".  All the papers are CJS including the maroon matte paper which is the back of the Rosh Hashanah packaging.  I used Sassafras Lass alpha stickers and I embossed the Star of David with embossing powder from Stampin' Up (my favorite).

Thanks for looking!
