I LOVE recipe challenges, don’t you? They get you thinking outside the box, digging deep in your stash. And that’s always good!
So this layout is based on a Recipe Challenge hosted by Laura over at ACOT. During the summer, every 2 weeks, she does MMC (Mini Monday Crop). She offers 3-4 challenges, some chit chat, a few games. It really gets the board hopping.
Here’s my layout:
The items were chosen from a list, to create the perfect “Picnic“. Mine choices are as follows:
b. large cooler with ice = cardstock and patterned paper
Choose at least 3, but not more than 6
a. sandwiches = photo mats
c. fresh fruit = flowers
f. pretzels = shaped clips/paper clips
g. cupcakes = a special treat (choose something that isn’t on your list..and tell us) — I used veneer stars
h. cheese tray = stickers
i. crackers = buttons
Choose your beverage:
e. iced tea = add enamel dots, bling, or acrylics in a cluster (at least 3)
Choose your comfort (pick 1):
b. lawn chairs = 2 photos
For the stickers, I really dug deep in my stash, using up some My Little Shoebox, MAMBI, Authentique, Teresa Collins. But they all went really well with my papers (Anna Griffin):
My layout is based on Sketch-N-Scrap’s Sketch #82:
This sketch was really up my alley, with all the layers and clusters of embellies. I was able to add buttons, veneer stars, stickers, bling and flowers!
