Dog Days

FYI- inking a dog's paw to stamp on a layout is a REALLY BAD idea!

1) Haven't figured out how many wet wipes will remove the ink from the dog's paw (20+ and still going)
2) The stamped image just looks messy and odd
3) Dog unhappy
4) Ink pad dropped on ground- staining hard wood
4) Ink pad broke when dropped. Trying to fix lid back on
5) Ruined shirt with ink while trying to fix ink pad

Now just letting the unhappy dog sit on my scrap table while his inky pads dry before he walks all over the house. Poor doggy! I bet he won't wander into my scraproom for awhile.

And just to show you the final results of the not so successful doggy page-

It is what it is. And what it is is done!

Getting crafty in the Kitchen

Happy fourth of July. Inspired by Pinterest (oh how I love and hate you)- I made 2 fun items for Independence Day. First I had American Flag toast for my boys for the morning before our neighborhood parade- a tradition around here. Toast with red jam. Then cut banana slices in half and lay on. You can use blue berries or blackberries (as I used here) for the blue square portion. Easy and cute.

Then I made these fruit skewers into another American Flag for a friend's Bar B Que we attended that afternoon.

Hope you have a happy fourth too!
God Bless America
