What's Cooking - SC Blog Hop Sketch & LGS

I don't know about you, but I am GLAD it's Friday! After three days without my laptop, it was finally returned to me as good as new! Thank God! They managed to save everything on my hard drive. What I didn't realize is how much my life revolves around this laptop. I was completely un-efficient at work and then couldn't catch up at night, didn't blog my daily pics, couldn't scrapbook, and the list goes on and on.  You would think I was completely off the grid, but I wasn't. I still had my Iphone, Ipad, and hubby's laptop.  Goodness.  It took all week to complete, but I finally finished a layout with our Halloween pictures this year. 




The left side was created using the Scrapbook Challenges Blog Hop sketch with Kristine Ponte's additional challenge to use stitching.  I used "faux" stitching around the "cooking" title letters and along the red border.



Here is an up-close photo of the stitching:


For the right side of the layout I used the Let's Get Sketchy sketch for February Week 1:



Here is the sketch: 

I added a second photo and used a recipe file in lieu of the tag.  My recipe is a recipe for a great Halloween photo shoot.  Here is an up-close picture of the recipe:




Materials Used:  Paper - MME & TPC Studio; boarder punch - Martha Stewart; rub-on - Karen Foster Design; Title letters - Pebbles; flower marker - the girls' paperie; recipe - TPC Studio; border flags - Basic Grey; button - unknown; twine - unknown; chipboard - Maya Road.

Thanks for visiting! Your comments mean so much!
