Precious- Creative Scrappers Sketch #226

Happy New Year!!


If you are Jewish like me then tonight you will be celebrating our New Year!!
Wishing you all my friends and Family a Shana Tova filled with health, happiness and peace.

Now to my reveal!!

Here is my layout for sketch #226 for Creative Scrappers

These 2 Sweet little babies (a boy and a girl) are the cutest twins born on June 2nd to one of my good friends. This picture was taken hours after they were born.
They are truly a miracle from G-d. After wanting babies for many years she finally decided to venture out into motherhood on her own.
The babies were being born at 29 weeks.  She happily brought them home and they are growing healthy.

I made this layout as a gift for her to hang on her wall. May G-d bless these 2 precious babies with health, happiness and love



Over at the Girly Grunge Ning site from Donna Salazar they are having a September challenge! The challenge is to make a gift for a friend. It could be a layout, a card or an OTP. I made this layout for my friend as a baby gift. I used the Botanique papers for this layout and cut some images out of it for my design.





Materials Used
Paper: Botanique by Donna Salazar, FabScraps Organic collection
Flowers: Green Tara, Petaloo, Prima, Recollections, Etsy shop
Butterflies: Recollections
Cherry Lynn Designs: peace vines, doily
Ek success punches
Alpha: Jillybean soup
Glass effect: crystal clear pearl pen
Dew Drop brilliance: starlight black
Cricut frame: Home Decor

I hope this year brings me new adventures
May G-d bless us all with health and happiness!!

Sooo beautiful... I wondered what religion, 'cos you never say 'The Big Man's' full name!!! I didn't know that was still a 'thing' in the Jewish religion...do you still call Him 'Yahweh'?? Or is that gone? I used to read those BIG tomes by Leon Uris & one was an amazing book right from the beginning of history, following the development of the Jewish people...interesting! Sorry - distracted - only knew some very liberal Jewish folk who didn't got to Synagogue, so don't know a heap...used to cut some kids hair who were Jewish [skull capped boys] & their Mum was ALWAYS flat out Friday nights getting ready BIG meals!!!

This is very beautiful, Keren- you did a great job with your clustering and that photo is precious. I must say, however- if you wish to speak of God on your blog, then you go right on ahead and do it- no need to censor His name!! Just so you know I'm a supporter and think religion is a beautiful thing and may all people have some type of faith in their lives :D~

Take care :),
