Lasting Memories-Guilty Pleasures Food/Beverage

If you are looking for the a2z Scrapbooking Beat the Winter Blues Blog hop please go here.

Good morning! Thank you so much for joining us last week at Lasting Memories, and all this month! We're down to our last challenge of February. You have till Friday at 9 pm EST to get your entries in! We'll be contacting a GDT on Saturday afternoon to join us for the month of March and we'll be announcing the winner of our  a2z scrapbooking gift certificate as well! Get those entries in! Haven's last challenge for February is
"Food/Beverage .. Guilty Pleasures"
What does this mean? Here's what Haven has to say:
"You know we all have those guilty little pleasures. Our favorite comfort food. This time of year it Girl Scout tagalong cookies for me. So for this week we are asking you to share your guilty pleasures with us- food based only please"

We have a tradition in our house at Christmas time. James makes a gluten free gingerbread house with a friend's son.  And I LOVE LOVE LOVE gingerbread. So I knew those pictures would be perfect for this challenge.

I decided to also use Creative Scrappers Sketch 262. It had a free chevron silhouette file too! This sketch kind of took on a life of it's own. It definitely was the inspiration although I did make some big changes, which isn't like me. Then again the sketch wasn't really my style either, so I went on a creative binge. This was fun!

Cardstock and Paper: Bazzil, Echo Park
Ribbon: Webster's page
Chipboard: Echo park
Sparkles: Webster's Page
Spray Mist: Hero Arts Pale Tomato,  Studio Calico Mister Huey Leaf Green
Dies: Avery Elle Chevron
