Scraplifting: More Criminal than it Sounds

Scraplifting sounds so dangerous, wrong, and bad. But in reality, it's a lot of fun!

Especially when you're in that sleepy mood that makes it hard to get the mojo flowing--you know what I mean!

I made this page as part of a "lift the person above you" challenge over at Studio Calico.

I lifted a beautiful layout by Sarah--go check it out on her blog!

And here's my take:
The journaling reads: This was just the best day--rolling dough, experimenting with fillings, laughing and listening to music.

If you're new to Jewish seasonal foods (which, trust me, you want to be familiar with), hamentaschen are cookies we eat on Purim, a celebration in the spring where we celebrate a narrow escape from destruction in Jewish history(if you want to know more, click the link!). The cookies are a triangle shape and filled with anything from jelly to chocolate.

My friend Adriana and I have a secret plan to start a gourmet hamentaschen business--with upscale flavors like pomegranate-ginger, dark chocolate-cherry, and stuff like that. Thoughts?

Do you scraplift? If so, do you join challenges or just choose layouts you like?

Oh, and PS--My strawberry-rhubarb pie was so-so. Good, but the strawberry-blackberry pie recipe i got off a food blog could kick it's tush:)

  1. Loving the upscale idea! There's always a niche business out there, you just need to find it! I love sketches more than lifts. But it is fun to lift every now and then!

  3. I love those cookies. I grew up in Borough Park in Brooklyn and I remember eating them in our neighbors kitchen. She'd make them from scratch for Purim, too. Love your idea of the different fillings. (your secret is safe with me!)
    Great lift - I've never lifted an entire layout but I do grab bits and pieces here and there :)

  5. Gorgeous layout, as usual. :) I will be lifting sooner or later, cuz I haven't scrapped a layout in over 7 months (too preoccupied making cards) - so I am out of practice.
