By Lori Designs Final Challenge Entry

Today is the cutoff for the final challenge at By Lori Designs blog and I am cutting it really close.  Here is my card:

I will be back in a few minutes to type more, but only have about 5 minutes left to link it right back it linked with two minutes to spare.

The challenge was to use this sketch (which I rotated):

The image is Lollipop Lil' Chef and I thought that the Modern Homemaker collection from October Afternoon was a perfect match for her. I love how these papers look against Kraft cardstock.  The only embellishment (aside from the rolling pin, pot holder and oven mitt that were cut from one of the papers) was some thin pink ric rac ribbon. Now I need to start scrapbooking some more....I have a few pictures of my girls making cookies that this image would be perfect with.

Today my husband and I got to chaperone Tyler's class field trip to Old World Wisconsin.  I love going there, it is just so neat to see and I think the kids enjoy it as well ~ they even got to play tug of war with a pair of oxen.  The weather was beautiful and we got lots of exercise with all the walking...and lots of sun which I loved...however right now I'm not loving the sunburn I arms and chest are quite sore.  I always take pictures on class field trips, but when we arrived I tried to turn on my camera and found out that the battery was totally dead.  No problem, I always carry a spare...well, at least I did until today ...last minute I decided to change purses this morning and completely forgot about the camera battery.  So, unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures today.    

Thanks for stopping and have a great day!
