"Create a recipe card for your favorite picnic/BBQ salad or side dish"!
Well, they're not called challenges for nothing and this WAS a challenge!!! I'm a... 'can't cook, won't cook' type of person, so this was making my hair curl I can tell ya! Well, I'm no quitter, so I dived on Firefox and looked up free summer recipes. (Didn't want to infringe anyone's copyright, did I)! Yay!! Got one.
(Got loads actually, but wanted to colour in my fave cherries and strawberries again).
Hmm, got the recipe, now what! Think Viv, THINK!! Hmm, picnic = picnic basket.
Found the perfect one HERE.
Printed some red gingham paper from Pink Petticoat and that became my 'tablecloth'.
Stamped out lots of Peachy Keen's cherries and strawberries, (PK-239 Faceless Fruit).
Stuck a cocktail stick on the back of one of each, then stuck another over it. That way, it looks the same whichever angle you're looking from. Plus, I could poke the cocktail stick through the gingham paper and make it look as if the fruit was sitting up in the basket. Now, I don't have a PK lemon, so I had to be creative with the MELON! I just coloured it lemon, then drew in some segments. Sorted!
I'm REALLY pleased with my picnic basket. (My paper engineering is coming on a treat)!
Here's the front of the basket with the all-important recipe!
definately stay out of my comfort zone a lot longer now I've got this under my belt.
Please hop on over to the Fabulous Peachy Keen blog for all the details and see all the scrummy recipe projects the other MEGA talented DT members have cooked up for you! You are warmly invited to join in with the challenge and I can't WAIT to see all those mouthwatering recipes.
Have a fabulous week!!
Thanks for calling by
