Before I get on with today's project, I gotta say that Mega Meet was so fun! I worked in Scrappy Chic's booth pretty much all day Friday and Saturday, and had a lot of fun meeting people, running make and takes, and meeting up with my crafty pals, like Sue:
And, of course, it was super-fun working with Chris and the gang! Here I am with Chris, her fab mom Linda, and fellow dt member/scrappy pal Liz, having a yummy little snack:
Fun times were had by all :) I still have more (way more) booth projects to show you, but today I thought I'd make you hungry instead. Check it:
Unity posted a challenge for National Scrapbook Day: to make an 8x8 page using a recipe (and a kraft base.) Now, I'm pretty sure I've never scrapped an 8x8 page -- or any square page, for that matter! I'm an 8.5x11 kinda gal. However, I had a lot of fun with this one! I made a strawberry shortcake trifle for my Mom on Mother's Day, using her (family secret) recipe for the shortcake, and Martha's (probably copyrighted) recipe for pastry cream from her latest Pies and Tarts cookbook.
For the background, I stamped the sweet little strawberry from the Garden Variety co-brand set over and over and over again, and then colored each one in using watercolor pencils (I'd forgotten I had them until I heard that a pal of mine had picked some up -- thanks for the reminder, Em!) .
Let's look at some details:
You can see the background better here, along with some epoxy accents I made with my new Epiphany shape maker.
(sorry about the color in this one...) I also played with my new Sew Easy from We R (available at Scrappy Chic)...and I only missed once ;) (letters from Girls' Paperie.)
Here, I added a label from Kitchen Logic behind a three-strand twine bow -- did a little watercoloring around the edge just for fun. (Twine from the Twinery, papers from October Afternoon and PTI, pins from my stash).
Whew! Lots of pics for one post, eh? Anyway, I hope you check out the Unity challenge, and I hope you have a delightful day!
