Hi everyone! Happy New Year. Yes, a couple of weeks late. I went from a bunch of posts to nothing since December 1st. Hope all's Holiday's turned out perfect. Another Christmas down and done. I'm ready for spring break! lol!
Today I have a layout for a challenge that I'm hosting over at Swirlydoo's. Click on the name to check out the gorgeous kits, and click *here* to go to the challenge itself. You don't have to be a kit subbie to play :) Now, no laughing when I tell you all about it. The challenge was to go back and do a layout of your first love. It could be what ever you wanted, toy, person, pet, you name it. Mine? Roast Beef, yes it's true roast beef was my first love when I thought back to the very first thing. When I was a baby I'd say "ro beef Ma!" Yeah I know, food, hubs wasn't' surprised.
I used the beautiful September kit Vintage Love, filled with gorgeous Prima Time Traveler papers. Here's a very small step out followed by pics -
I did a small stamping around the page followed by layering my matting before the pics.
The journaling is on the back of the pretty tags in the lower left corner. It says - "Yes it's true, I loved roast beef! I would say to my mom "Ro beef mom!" My grandma would make me roast beef and it was so good. My grandpa would take the Italian bread and dip it in the bloody juices. We call it boonzy. One would think pasta for this Italian girl, but nope. I love my roast beef and potatoes."
The cute hearts were cork and I glued glass beads on them. The brown netting like paper was from holiday packaging which hubs said would be good for scrapping, and it is. The chippies is a combo of Blue Fern and Creative Embellishments. The book pages I have in my stash as were the title letters.
I hope you like it! Thanks for the visit.
