It has been awhile since I have updated my blog. Bad of me, I know. Life just gets crazy sometimes. I wanted to take some time to update you all with some recent projects that I have created. The first one is a layout I did for scrapbook.com's National Scrapbooking Day All week challenge. For this challenge we were supposed to scrap a picture of a thing. No people or pets allowed. I knew the photo I wanted to use immediately! I realized this Hanukkah that I didn't have ANY photos of the gorgeous menorah that my grandmother gave to me. I made it a point to take a photo of the menorah on the 8th night of Hanukkah so it would be full of candles burning bright. This menorah is very special to me and definitely one of my prized possessions. My grandmother gave it to me when I moved out on my own and she picked one for me that so perfectly fits my style. I think it it beyond beautiful. I used the Basic Grey Ambrosia line for this layout because it is one of my favorite paper lines. I thought mixing favorites was fitting.
