Fun & Truffles


WOO-HOO, I love it when I make a layout that will work for multiple challenges.    This one will be entered into 4 challenges.     Insert my happy face here.    :)

I started out with the sketch  #98 from "Let's Capture Our Memories"    It's a great sketch to use a grouping of pictures.   So I started looking thru some recent pictures I've taken and came up with these from last week when we were working in St. Louis and went over to see the kids at their house one evening and Nikki had been making truffles for an event they were going to the next night.
Gibson decided he wanted to help so I was able to get these pictures of him.   Luckily Nikki had also taken a picture of all the ingredients out on the counter and posted to FB about what she was doing that day so that became my picture #4.    
Then I remembered that "Red Carpet Studios" had their Julie and Julia challenge going on which was to make a project inspired by food.   Perfecto, this would do it for sure.    So I looked in my cooking paper and embellie drawer to see what I could come up with.    I found this perfect baking background paper.   The strip under the pictures is coffee bean papers, but I'm going with that its cocoa bean paper since this was about chocolate truffles.   It works,  right?
 I got the layout all made and was trying to decide how to do the title.   I had one gemstone on the center of the 4 pictures and nothing else.  Thats when I remembered that  challenge #30 at "Scrapping 4 Fun" was an anything goes with bling challenge.    So I started looking for some bigger bling items other than just a single gem.    Thats when I found the "&" sign made from bling.   I remember when I got it in a prize package wondering what I would do with it.
Luckily I hadn't done my title yet which I was thinking it would only be "Truffles" so I decided to make it "Fun & Truffles"  I used my & bling and them added a few more gems to put some more bling on the layout.   Last but not least is one of the monthly challenges at a yahoo group "Scrappin-n-Chattin" I'm in was to use journaling strips on a layout and thats just what I did.

Here is the sketch that started it all below and then I'll have links to all the challenges.
