I love mac and cheese. It's my favourite. Slurp. And I was totally jazzed to find a chap selling it on the street in Camden. And so I made a page. Sorted :D
It was awesome actually. You got to pick your ingredients - I picked mature cheddar for flavour, mozzarella for stringyness and red Leicester for colour. And he just whipped it up right there.
Simple pleasures, little moments and really yummy food is really what I think scrapbooking is for. And I really love how this page turned out. It was one of those that just came together from scraps. The background is a Sassafras that I adore - part of their Starters line - and the rest was bits and pieces that were lying around.
I also note that this page truly marks my transition from the butterfly-bemused to the butterfly-enthused. I remember when butterflies stared appearing everywhere and I wasn't a fan to start with. I couldn't work out why people wanted to associate them with everything as they seemed really themed to me. Now I have embraced the butterfly as a neutral yet pretty addition to any page. Even ones about mac and cheese.
I folded all the butterflies in half and only stuck one wing down to give some dimension. I also raised some of them on little foam squares. I've been using this technique a lot lately. I think it's a cute but effective detail.
P.S. I had a wonderful weekend at camp with my Guides. They were angels, got stuck in doing some really yucky volunteering projects (think rats - I did say yucky) and we hardly stopped shrieking with laughter all weekend. My weekend was assessed and instead of passing me for the Senior Section Permit, they upgraded me to the full Guide Holiday Licence. Hard work overkill really paid off :D Now all I have to do is evaluate and claim my badge.
