Challenge #53: Apples & Honey

Today is the beginning of Rosh Hashanah. While maintained to be a Jewish holiday, it is part of the "missed or lost understanding" of our Christian (Hebraic) roots. Among some of the items eaten during this festival, apples and honey are consumed to symbolize a sweet new year.  So happy new year or  L'shanah tovah!

Here are the sweet apple and honey projects our Design Team came up with!

Dalis used Doodlecharms and George & Basic Shapes cartridges to
create this super cute card.  Make sure you check her blog for the details!

Jen created two 12x12 scrapbook layouts for today's challenge.
 The first uses the "Just Because" Cards and Walk in My Garden cartridges.

The second uses the "Just Because" Cards and Doodlecharms cartridges.
Make sure you check out her blog for the "sweet" details!

Melin created this layout using the Heritage, Give a Hoot and Plantin School Book Cartridges.


Melin created this layout using the Plantin School Book Cartridge, a PIE SVG file from PaperCraftingWorld and a Lifestyle Crafts (formerly Quickutz) decorative border die.

Melin created this layout using the  Just Because, Forever Young and Lyrical Letters Cartridges.

Here is a close up of the little honey bee holding his honey pot. The honey pot is from the Just Because cartridge and the Honey Bee is from Lyrical Letters and George and Basic Shapes. I did use the Gypsy to do some welding but he could be reproduced without the Gypsy as well.

Now it's your turn! Link up your apple and/or honey of a project . . . Here are a few guidelines:
* Must follow the challenge topic.
