Happy Mini Monday - April Fools Day!

Hello, Friends. It is April Fool's Day and MINI MONDAY!!! I hope you all enjoyed a lovely Easter yesterday. Here in Colorado we have been horseback riding since the weather has been so nice this week. It gives our horses a chance to really stretch their legs and get rid of some of that pent up energy they’ve been hoarding during the winter months.
 
It was so warm on Saturday that Dallas and Duncan got shampoo baths and today they still smell so good…like show horses even after they’ve rolled in the dirt…LOL

 
This week I created a hybrid digital project where I developed a Recipe Template in Photoshop. I wanted to create something special with a recipe theme and thought this would be a delight if it was something from my kitchen.

I created the template in Photoshop then added the stamped images and colored each image in Copics. I used Kitchen Tilda and Chef Edwin.
 
 
Each one has different digital papers and elements from Digital Scrapbook Place, Digital Scrapbooking Memories and Jessica Sprague coordinated with each color theme. Kitchen Tilda is one of my favorites and I just got Chef Edwin and thought this is a great fit since the theme is all about Yummy!
 
 
 
Don’t forget to leave a comment on the DT blogs and/or the Challenge blog for a chance to win a prize. For all the details, visit Magnolia-licious & Wee Stamps Challenge.

Hope you enjoyed my Mini Monday project today.
Hugz,
