Recipe for Welcome Guest

Here's a layout remembering the wonderful weekend I had with friends last weekend. I'm celebrating their new home with a house theme and her husband's great cooking with a recipe theme for the journaling.


Recipe for a Welcome Guest
2 wonderful people
1 loving miniature dachshund
A lovely new-to-them house
Gorgeous sunny temperate weather
Delicious home cooked soft foods
2 movies on DVD
1 best friend
Invite best friend for the Fall break weekend.  Prepare and serve delicious cottage pie.  Drive friend around to see pretty campus & new office and tour city. Intersperse movies with lively conversation.  Tour nearby town on the Inner Banks.  Toss in a couple of tasty sweet treats.  Finish with an afternoon of furniture shopping.  Plan on a repeating recipe for maximum effect.

Nichol Magourik's Scrapbook Stamping class at Two Peas for October is about building a scene from stamps.  I used Hero Arts  Whimsical Houses stamp set and added a paper pieced sunshine.  The papers are Stampin' Up!  Nichol's Wednesday video series From Start to Finish inspired the layout and button embellishments.

Their little dog Winnie shown in the photos gets her own little stamped image, too!

I bought lots of word stickers at Archivers but still didn't have the colors and words I needed so I just printed these out and added to the layout.

Thanks for visiting today!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Whimsical Houses by Hero Arts
