My First Menu Challenge!

I haven't had a lot of time lately for crafting, and that makes me a little sad. Back in September I joined in on a menu challenge that Christa was hosting on the Two Scrapbook Friends forum. I missed the deadline, but I did manage to finish my layout.

Here is the menu I had to work with:

  • Pudding = Washi tape
  • Banana = Use yellow
  • Banana Muffin = Use at least 3 patterns
  • Goldfish Crackers = Use blue
  • Cheese & Crackers = Use a sketch
  • Turkey Wrap = Use a diamond 
Here is my layout!  


I used 3 different patterns - chevron, stripe and the strips.


The herringbone pattern is a strip of Washi tape.


The colours blue and yellow are shown in the stripe, in the stars, and in the journal spot.  I also chose photos that had blue and yellow in them.


I did use a sketch to create this layout and I cut out 3 diamond shapes on my Silhouette and placed them near the title on page 1.


This was a really fun challenge.  It was my first time playing along and I will definitely do it again.  Thanks to Christa for making me coordinate products that I wouldn't necessarily put together.



  1. It was worth the wait. What an awesome double! I love all the details and the title is way cool.
