Bar Mitzvah Card

I remember over 30 years ago, when I had my Bat Mitzvah, I received multiples of each card available in the card stores. This past October, when my son had his Bar Mitzvah, nothing had changed in this regard. This motivates me to make hand-made cards for each Mitzvah we are invited to. Even so, all my Mitzvah cards are similar as there are very limited options for Bar and Bat Mitzvah themed products.  This card is for my son's friend who will be celebrating tomorrow.

I used this sketch from Your Next stamp.

Thanks for looking.

I recently discovered CraftSmith papers and fell in love with the Pacific Cove collection which is perfect for my Belize photos.

This page of my husband and sons in a kayak was taken from the shore at our hotel and uses this sketch from Stuck?!:

This page is about a fun story. We had gone snorkeling with a guide and while we were in the boat taking off our fins, my younger son climbed out of the boat and walked through the water over to this island where we spotted him. We have a family joke about private islands which led to my title. This is for the picture tells a story challenge at Memorable Seasons, please visit us here and check it out. 

Thanks for looking!


I'm up on the Just Imagine Kreaxions blog today with this layout of my kids snorkeling in Belize.

I used 3 different Kreaxions punches to create the doily, fish border, and photo mat. You can check out the details here. The papers are CraftSmith Pacific Cove collection.

Thanks for looking!

Placencia is a small city in Belize with great restaurants and the best gelato. We stayed on the beach about 4 miles North of town, but the boys had an excuse to go into town for gelato every single day.

I used this Sketch from Sketches in Thyme.

Thanks for looking!

More coffee

I've been so inspired by the coffee lovers blog hop and the fact that I have new coffee themed stamps, that I decided to make another card.
Thanks for looking!
