We Must Take Adventures

My layout on the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog today is created with Authentique Adventure Collection.
I used sketch #87 from Let's Capture Our Memories. The grid design was perfect for the cards I cut out from one of the pattern papers.

I also used challenge #9 at Scrap & Play Challenge blog. The journal card is lined paper, washi tape along the top and bottom, I handwrote the journaling, and a little bit of blue.

Gang In Cabo

I have a tutorial today on the Scrapbook {Express}ions blog on transferring die cut letters to your projects. You can see the details on how I created the title for this layout on the blog.
I used this sketch from Creative Scrappers for the layout.

I also used this challenge from Color Me Scrappy challenge blog.

Lobster Avocado Club Sandwich

I have been enjoying quite a bit of PEI lobster this summer and have been coming up with different ways to use lobster. Lobster kicks up this twist on a club sandwich to an entirely different level.  As a healthier alternative, creamy avocado and greek yogurt are used instead of mayonnaise.

I am entering this sandwich in Oroweat's America's Better Sandwich contest.

3 ounces cooked lobster
2 Tbl. greek yogurt
1/2 avocado, sliced
salt & pepper (optional)
2 slices bacon, cooked
3 small butter lettuce leaves
2 slices Oroweat 100% whole wheat bread

Toast 2 slices of Oroweat 100% whole wheat bread. Place lettuce leaves, avocado slices (salt and pepper, if using), and bacon on top of one slice of toasted bread. Chop lobster into bite sized pieces and toss in a small bowl with 2 Tbl. greek yogurt.  Place lobster mixture on top of bacon; top sandwich with second slice of toasted bread. Slice sandwich in half and enjoy.

Sisal Bowls

I've been creating a few Pinterest inspired projects for our cottage in Prince Edward Island. I am sharing some sisal bowls I created that were inspired by Hi Sugarplum and Brit + Co.  I have to say they turned out quite well and were pretty easy.
For the large bowl, which is about 6" in diameter, I used a terra cotta saucer (like you put put under a plant pot...what do you call those things?). I started by adhering the rope around the base of the saucer with my glue gun and worked around until it was the size I wanted. I have put some shells I collected from the beach in this bowl.

For the small bowl, which is about 4" in diameter, I just used the rope and started rolling it into a circle for the base then started stacking the rows of rope on top of the base. I placed sea glass that I have collected in this bowl and glued one of the starfish (that I collected and dried) onto the front of the bowl.

So....successfully nailed some Pinterest projects.

By The Sea

Yes, it's another cat layout. They are just such good subjects for photographs. These photos were taken on their first exploration of the beach at our cottage in PEI last October.

This layout is for the follwing challenges: Got Talent #11 Main Challenge at My Scraps & More to use at least 3 items that are fussy cut and get messy using paints or mists with your fingers, Scrap & Play Challenge #8 to see a layout of your four-legged friends, and sketch #275 from Creative Scrappers.
