TGF Heart Journaling--week 17

Hi!  Week 17 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  Theme this week is Soul Food and to create a page based on your favorite food.  Okay, I hate exercising.  So I'm trying to not eat too much junk food cause really I don't wanna have to exercise all the extra pounds off.  I love food but I'm really more lazy unless I have a serious craving for something.  So for this layout, I thought I'd create a page dedicated to some of my favorite guilty pleasures.

I don't even think Cheryl knows the kinds of food I sometimes crave.  But pretty close to the top has to be KFC Original Recipe Chicken.  I mean, I LOVE it!  I don't eat it often but I'll have a craving for it now and then.  I love that it's salty.  I think I'm a salty and sweet kind of person.  But after I eat it, I sometimes feel sick.  Not like a guilty sick but physically nauseous sometimes cause it's pretty oily and greasy.  So then I vow not to eat it again but then I do.  Vicious cycle! 

Also on this page is pork rinds.  Hahaha.  Who would've guessed?  But I love them too and the sad thing is so do my kids so I have to hide the bag from them cause they'll ask for it if they see it.  I know, I'm a hypocritical mom. 

And my last 2 guilty pleasures are chocolate covered almonds and hohos.  So maybe the chocolate almonds are not that bad for you in moderation but I love the one from Costco and yeah, there's a lot.  That's another one I have to hide from the kids.

I actually printed these photos from online and wrote some journaling around it.  Hmmm, I could go for some pork rinds now and good thing I have some in the house!  Hehe.

Thanks for reading!

Wow, is it already art journal time again? Yeah, KFC is pretty good, in small doses, the one near our house closed I think. The pork rinds not so much... I didn't know they still made ho hos, is that the same brand as twinkies and the cupcakes with the white swirly line down the middle? Haven't seen those around since I was a kid! Sounds yummy! Although I like mochi things the best!
All my kind of junk foods.... how can you resist that are just delish in every aspect...
Great journal page Eva~

LOL!! I do love me some junk food too! Nice to hear about your faves! What a cool assignment from TGF, I think it's so interesting to hear what people crave or their favorite thing to cook! I once had this beloved Japanese restaurant & I'd always order their Tempura. I'd also feel nauseous after-- I think that happens when you eat fried food after not having any for a while. As for the chocolate-covered almonds- just think that almonds are super food (lots of omega-3s) & chocolate is good for you in moderation!! ;)

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Hi!  It's been a while since I participated in one of PTI's blog hop challenges.  But I had to play along this month.  Not only did I place an order on release night but I also got my goodies in about a week!  So I had some time to play around with my new stamps and dies.  Hehe.  Below is the inspiration photo.

I love the Christmas theme and the colors too so I went with that.

When I saw the newly released penguin stamp and die, I had to get them.  So cute!!  I thought this penguin would make a cute spinner card too.  Similar to the froggy one I made HERE.  I also used PTI's In the Meadow dies.  I used the die itself and my hobby blade to cut along the curved edge to create the little cut out for the penguin to slide.  I did that twice leaving a quarter inch space between them.

I layered the penguin with PTI's coasters.

I added a tiny bell to his hat.

He slides down.  The jingle all the way sentiment is from Tiny Treats Xmas.  Just traced the space with a pencil and curv…
