I took the challenge at "The Memory Nest" to task. They had this great sketch that you can see below. I switched it up a bit by turning the one pic in sketch to a collage look of 4 pics. Then the twist was to use up your stash and lots of layers. I used both A&B sides of a bunch of food and cooking themed papers that I've had forever from when I did a lot of recipe card swaps. Plus my wooden chicken embellie at the top has been all lonesome in my button drawer for probably 5 years.
Layers, well I love layers and matting. So without counting the background piece of paper and the chicken (because of placement) I have 13 layers at the corner of the top banner. All my cut papers and picture collage are matted either one or two times. I couldn't believe the weight when I picked up this finished layout, but I love it. These pictures were taken at our first dinner in Mackinaw City, MI on our vacation. We ate at The Depot outside on the patio. We had a variety of foods, Smothered Steak, Fried Chicken that are pictured and then a large Club sandwich and the large order of Chicken Wings from the appetizer and sandwich side of the menu. The 4 of us ate well.
