Pat A Cake, Pat A Cake, Baker Girl!

I made a nice page on Sunday.  I was so pleased with the "photo strip" effect on the page in this post, that I used it again. Almost the same template for the layout too - just an extra big photo, rather than the vertical photo-strip.

Pat A Cake - My little great niece's first attempt at making scones


Apart from weighing the ingredients and being shown the "rubbing in the butter" part, she did these all by herself.
They tasted great - I know because she saved one specially for "Auntie"! I ate it with some of the jam that me & Keri-Anne made together.
I used a little bunting stamp, and a plate of buns stamp, which I coloured with pastel marker pens.
I raised the stamped images (and the photo of the plate of scones) on foam pads, to give a bit of dimension and interest.

Quite pleased with this page. And it shows you can do a "girly page" without using pink paper!

  10. Hi Mel, the bunting stamp was part of a little freebie set, that came with Simply Homemade magazine a couple of months ago. The little plate of cakes is part of the same set - there was also a checked background stamp and some others - it had a picnic kind of theme. Hope that helps!

    Thanks everyone. I love this page and I also love the photo-strip idea. I might use it again and again....

  14. I loved your photo strip on the previous LO and it looks equally good here. I think you will be able to get a lot of use from that clever idea.
    Lovely photos to :o)
    Glad you and your DS liked the pumpkin links. Look forward to seeing what he is inspired to create.

  15. Love what you did with this. Nice job on the hand-coloring. I like how you used the dimensional stuff too. I'm sure she will be excited to look at this in a few years.

    Kimberlee, I gave this page to my niece, to keep for her little girl. She was very pleased with it herself - it's going on the wall!
