Maymaymadeit's video on YouTube to create this "impossible" card. I am officially obsessed. I asked for MayMay's permission to share my Silhouette files that I created from her templates and she said yes so here you go.

I was a very small child when my grandfather died (I think almost 3) so I never knew him. I was born and raised in Illinois and my grandmother lived in Arkansas. So I only got to see her once a year on vacation. I one thing I remember most about her was her LONG white hair that she would let me brush and that she chewed tobacco. I never had a good picture of them before and have asked my cousins that grew up in Arkansas with her to share one. I have tried for years to get a good photo of them and then the other day one of my cousin's finally posted a photo of them on Facebook. I have no idea when this photo was taken or why they were dressed up. I printed the photo at Wal-Mart and when I got there to pick it up I went straight to the scrapbook paper (although I have more paper than Wal-Mart has) and looked for paper to match the photo. I thought this Colorbok 12" Designer Wild and Free Paper Pad worked well to match grandma's jacket, the sky and grandpa's suit.
I used a Fiskars diamond border punch on the top & bottom of the teal strip of grid paper and fussy cut flowers from another sheet in the pack. I had the Studio Calici chipboard cameras in my stash and put one of each color in each of the 3 embellishment spots and added a different color lens to each. Then I put another color dot on each so that I had the grey, yellow and blue in each. I matted the photo in a yellow patterned paper in the paper pack and I had some Thickers in my stash AMERICAN CRAFTS THICKERS: IMPRINT | CREAM & GOLD FOILED CHIPBOARD.
. I absolutely love the way this turned out and so glad I have a nice photo of my paternal grandparents...finally.

I found the cutest cupcake liners at the Dollar Tree tonight and came home and made some cupcake liner rosettes. I love the cupcake liner rosettes because they are much lower profile than traditional rosettes. I still love traditional rosettes but I do love the cupcake liner ones.

The challenge for this month from MercyTiara's Facebook Group "MercyTiara's 27 Day Challenge" was to use a specific recipe. Details on she YouTube channel
A recipe challenge! In order to qualify for this challenge, you must use all the “ingredients” in the following recipe:
Preheat scrapspace to 70º F (21ºC)
Grease and flour a page protector. Wait, on second thought, maybe skip that one.
Combine the following supplies:
- 1 Black and White, 5X7 photo of yourself, fresh or frozen (recent or older)
- 1 or more 6X6 paper pads: - 1 page of the floral variety - 1 page of the striped variety
- 1 sketch of any kind (sketches can be found at creativescrappers.com, pagemaps.com, or any other site, magazine, etc.)
- Layer together the above ingredients, stirring in any other items, as needed, from your pantry (scrap room).
- Season with mist, or buttons, or wood veneers, or enamel dots, or Nuvo crystal drops, to taste.
- Garnish with a title.
- Serve the final dish (layout) with the sketch on the side.
Let the cook-off begin!
I used a 5x7 black & whiter photo, 2 6x6 pads (Woven paper from Fabrique pressed petals and Basic Grey 'Hey You'). The sketch I found by googling 5x7 sketch and found this sketch by Brenda Ragsdale found on her blog for the February 2012 challenge. I added tags for journalling and a couple of roses I made from my "pantry" (stash) and 'seasoned' it with gems and garnished it with a title. The bow at the top is from Fancy Pants Happy go lucky Button set.
