What's Cookin'?

The recipe this week at Cooking it up with Katie is... make it for a boy, add some check (gingham etc), and add a touch or two of brown or 'Check out that boy in the brown!'
The sponsor this week in the Pixie Dust Studio, who donated the digis for the DT to work with. Don't you just love this cute bear!
The paper is in fact a pink gingham Cuddly Buddly digi, which I turned to sepia in Picasa as I didn't have any DP of a suitable shade. I think it worked quite well.
The embossing is from a Papermania folder, with the border cut with a Martha Stewart punch.
If you zoom in you may see that I paper pieced the boat with a complementary paper (also changed in Picasa). The sentiment is from a Cuddly Buddly rubber stamp.
It's a great recipe this week, so do join in. We'd love to see what you create.

    hey - you did a great job with changing the colour of the paper - you need My Craft Studio - even if you only used the graphics package itself - you could do all that stuff no probs.

    I LOVE that image - have you used it before? I like the little worm in the barrel!!!
    Great colouring as usual - and great colour scheme.
