One of the best ways to spend time together is baking cookies. It's educational, messy and yummy all rolled into one.
This layout is inspired by Ilaria Gianquinto, one of the Lipstick Girls at XOXO. It's a scraplifing challenge blog, and the winner this month will receive an awesome Summer Vacation from Lucky Girl Crafts. I spy some of the Starlight collection in there, which would be perfect for Independence Day photos, hint, hint!
I chose Ilaria's layout to scraplift because I loved her misting (a technique I have yet to master) and paint splatters, as well as the embellishments that draw the focus to the one main photo. Plus doilies!
The spoon and fork were printed and cut out from an online image for misting and my favorite recipe for sugar cookies is tucked behind the photo of my daughter. Maybe she'll use it one day when she's older. See the recipe here at Allrecipes if you like falling apart, tender sugar cookies.
Supplies: Basic Grey, Webster's Pages, Hambly Screen Prints, October Aftenoon, American Crafts, The Paper Studio, Maya Road
