For Pat's blog hop items

You should have come from scrappin dhilly's blog If not please go to Erica's blog http://mycricutcraftroom.blogspot.com/ to start

I used
Country Life Cartridgeto make my projects...
   Recipe:    Base 12x12 craft paper.  Trim 1 inch off two sides of printed red paper and secure to base.  I have a Sew Easy to make the holes around the border of the red paper.  However I wanted it to look handmade, so did not use all the scored holes made.  Whipped stitched with black yarn for contrast.
Phrase Home Cookin' and shadow cut at 4 inches.  The apron and shadow cut at 4.5 inches.  The kitchen utinsel jar was cut at 5 inches, edges inkedand shaded in red/brown (Quick Quotes Amaretto) and mounted to layout with pop dots.  Photos were double matted (beige and brick) and attached to layout with gold photo corners.  To complete the homey look, journaling was typed (font, True Type) on clear label then mounted on the same paper as the photo mat.   To finish, I added a bit of bling, ribbon and buttons, thin twine was just tied through button and placed on layout with glue dot.
