Happy Hanukkah!

Can I tell you a funny story?    This one has nothing to do with scrapbooking but it does involve the theme of today's layouts.  Yesterday I was at Trader Joe's and an older couple was arguing in the baked goods section about whether or not certain items were kosher.  It was getting to be a pretty heated discussion and everyone was backing away and giving them their space.  Finally the husband walks off in a huff and says, "Fine, let's just bring them a ham."  It was one of the funnier moments I've had at TJs!

Ok, back to scrapping....here's some Hanukkah inspiration for you for the first day of the Festival of Lights!  I loved layering the new Hanukkah paper from Karen Foster with other prints around the shop, including a navy houndstooth that is found on the reverse side of a My Mind's Eye print and a distressed solid from Crate Paper's Random collection.   The ruffle couldn't have been easier!  I added double stick tape along the perimeter of the paper and formed the ruffle by hand.  No sewing involved!  Love it!  Of course, you can't go wrong with torn or sanded edges.  

Be sure to set out some time to shop our Hanukkah selection, its the best one we've ever had!
