Event Layout

Well, it's sort of an event layout. There was a big event-my son's bar mitzvah. But, it turns out, I don't have the photos from said event. The gorgeous posed photos, filled with friends and family, with the Old City of Jerusalem as the backdrop. Those photos I don't have yet. They had to make their way from Israel, and I believe they are now somewhere in New Jersey. (I will track them down, now that one big holiday has been checked off the list.)  During the big event I took two...count  them, The rest I left to the professional.

Anyhow, not yet having the main photos, has allowed me to tell a small little story from the big event. Namely, how after I worked and worked on the benchers, and then reworked the benchers, we left them in the car, and it was too far away to go back and retrieve them. Well, we could have, but one of us would have had to miss a big chunk of our son's bar mitzvah, and we were not willing to do that.

On the way home, as I looked in the back seat of the car, and sighed at the basket full of benchers, my husband said, "You should take a picture of them. That will one day be part of the story of Max's bar mitzvah." He definitely gets the point of this scrapbooking thing.

I used some Chanukah papers, and a smattering of the Rosh Hashana papers and stickers as well. I love those stickers. They always look good, no matter what I do with them.

Shana Tova, everyone!
