Take Out Those Images #11.

Okay, I'm super excited to show off today's project. Forgive me, because there's gonna be several photos to show what I did on these pages.

I was sent these images from The Greeting Farm from Tammi. Aren't they the cutest? I thought they'd be a wonderful addition to this page after I had the photos developed. I colored one to look like Gabi, and one to look like Trey.
Now a little bit about the page, because it's got some fun elements on it. Back in December, my neighbors invited the kids and I over for what they call the "Christmas Cookie Cook Off." Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
Man, my neighbor was prepared for this too! Sheets covered the tables, and they were all decked out for decorating messy cookies with frostings, sprinkles, cookie cutters, rollers and flour! They were serious about their cookie cook off! They compete to see who can make the coolest cookies. Hands down went to their son's girlfriend, the one where glasses in the photos. She's been to culinary school, and rocked decorating! Second place had to be their son, Patrick, who made an ice cream cone out of a star. I mean, that's crafty for a dude, isn't it?!
The kids loved it, and spent 4 hours rolling, cutting, frosting, sprinkling love, and eating cookies.

Than I kicked it up a notch, and used a neglected cricut cartridge, From My Kitchen, too add some extra fun touches to the page. Do you see that darling timer? Look at the rolling pin...love it! Even cut out a little hand mixer. I had planned on using cookies we decorated that I took some photos off to use for the 'O's in my title, but they were too big. So, had to go with something else. I had grabbed this cartridge the other day when Trey wanted bacon on a hat for Dr. Seuss Week-don't ask. There wasn't any bacon on this cartridge, but it was fresh in my mind from pulling it out for him, and thought it was perfect for this layout.

The cartridge didn't have a lot of cookies though, but did have the cute gingerbread chap. I thought the hot pads would be perfect with the cookie theme. I mean, how cute are those cherries? I layered up just about all the cut pieces, which is a great feature with the cartridge.
Than in a rare "Ah-Ha!" moment, I added the buttons for the cherries, and to the gingerbread men. Perfect touch, huh?! The gingerbread man was accented with white paint pen. It did have a feature to layer it up, but they were tiny parts, so I just did the pen.
Thanks for stopping by!
