Lobster Bake

Happy Sunday,

Today I have another layout to share. This was our annual lobster bake. The crowd was a bit smaller this year but we had a great time anyway. The lobsters and steaks were delicious. I made cooler corn on the cob, baked potatoes, cole slaw, and I cheated with the clam chowder. I picked the clam chowder up at Stew Leonard's put it in the crock pot and everyone thought I made it. I did tell them where I got it. All their soups and chili's are very good. To end the meal we had apple pie with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream. Later that night we sat by the fire and had a few hot dogs. What a fire without hotdogs???? Our last guests left around 11:30pm. It was starting to get pretty chilly even with the fire going.

For this page I just lined the base paper with 4 6x6 patterned paper on an angle matted my photos and put them down. I had a lot of photos to fit on these two pages. I did some journaling on a journal card, and made the sign for the fire, The camp fire was made by cutting 3 identical cut out in the 3 colors and then off set them and pulled some of the flames forward to mix them up. I cut the logs out of patterned paper that was wood boards, glued them to the back and front of the flames. Then I added a bit of yellow around the edges of the flames to deepen the color just a bit. Filled in the empty space with washi tape. It's the washi with all different cameras. You can't really tell from the picture.
