Magpie Challenge at Creative Cookbooking

Tara from Magpie Club is our guest designer at Creative Cookbooking this month. Her challenge has two parts and the prize is one of her kits! Click here to join in the fun. {hint...your odds are pretty good at winning since not too many people have entered yet ;) shhh}

The first part of the challenge was to create a food LO using only the colors black, white and gold. This was realllllly hard for me but once I found the background paper, things came together. The paper is actually printed with Christmas theme text but since we normally have the same meal for Christmas and Thanksgiving I went for it. This was our first (and so far, only) meal that was just our little family. I happened to be pregnant with The Tasmanian Devil (she's that NOW, not back then) at the time and had just had an ultrasound. See... she was making a turkey hand wave at us? We told the big girl at that meal that she would be a big sister so I thought it was appropriate to add the ultrasound picture.I wanted to journal about our meal and how we told the big girl about the little girl, so I added a hidden tag for all of the journaling. The gold mat is actually a piece of mat board that had come in a project kit a few months bag. I had no interest in the project so I've been using it on LOs and I really like the dimension it adds. It is NOT the easiest thing to work with though since it's too thick to cut in a trimmer and the finish is not one that takes to adhesive well. The ribbon also came from the kit - and I've got to tell you, at times like this, it really comes in handy that I hoard so much!
