Throwback Thursday's Challenge

This time theme is FOOD. She asked for us to use "From my kitchen", but again I didn't have it so I used a few other ones. I used for the silhouette "A Child's year" and The utensils from "Country Life". The letters are all different fonts. I just was playing around mainly. I was really stressed today and just sat down and made something simple.

I know I know - not really food on my page, but my favorite food memory.

I just love the silhouette of the little child and the adult "baking".

This recipe is very special to me. I remember when I was a younger girl my Grandma Helen, making Chocolate Chip Cookies from SCRATCH. She was the best CC Cookie maker. I one day wrote down the recipe (she didn't give it out to just anyone). I wrote it on some paper I found nothing special I was probably 8 or 9 years old. Well a few months ago my mom found that paper and gave it to me. The paper is all splattered and yes that was my own hand writting from a while ago. I guess that is why I really like this page.

While my Grandma is no longer with us, I will have this memory FOREVER, afterall isn't that why we scrapbook - to keep those wonderful memories.

I was really just trying to preserve the recipe. I wanted something simple but nice.

I had a thought in my head but when I tried to make it on paper, really didn't look good at all.

So here is the final project.

I used:
SEI Brown, Red, Pink Card stock
The faces on the "O"'s are from Peachy Keen Stamps


White gel pen

Not allot of stuff on it, I think It needs something but can't figure out what I want/need for it.

Any suggestions?

I used MY new favorite TOOL!!! MY FLIP PAL scanner. Its great. Takes a little practice to scan a 12x12 but I figured it out.

WEll here's to Happy Scrappin'
