Sometimes I make layouts about my favorite meals or restaurants and lots and lots of times I make layouts about my granddaughter Elle.   With this layout I combined the two together.
This week while I spent one night with family we went out to eat at my favorite BBQ place in Columbia, MO  "Como Smoke & Fire"  and had my favorite meal there, a BBQ pork steak.  I just love them, my hubby doesn't at all so it is a very rare time we make them at home, but this is my go to dinner at this place.   But the topper for the evening is that my granddaughter was there too.
I think this is the first time she has been there, but we had fun together and she loved her mac & cheese and smoked turkey sandwich.   She ate all the mac & cheese first, of course what kid wouldn't do the same, and then have of her sandwich.   She turned to me and said "Gigi, my belly is full now"

I used the sketch for this week at  "SKETCHES IN THYME".   I pulled out a couple of my food/recipe themed papers and tore a piece for the top  part of my layout and added my pictures and title.   Then I just pulled out a lot of food embelies and stickers and did a cluster of embellishments.
Added my journaling and I have a completed layout.

Check out this sketch at  "SKETCHES IN THYME"  and be sure to check all the sketches for the month too.


Next I'll enter my layout at  "LASTING MEMORIES"   Challenge #467 is Torn Edges.
