I decided to watch the game while working away on my StashBuster class and playing catching up on Project Life® 2013. I got myself current with the challenges, I need to do #4 (just released yesterday) and managed to use up the Echo Park Splendid Sunshine line from the April Smaller than a Breadbox kit and barely scratched into another.
Last week's challenges focused on using paper. I made this starburst pattern and created the layout.
These weren't the first photos I tried - the first set, there were just too many and it was just too much. But this group works well. Or at least, well enough. I had a some scraps left, though looking at all that paper it's hard to believe. But I popped out two cards as well.
The top card I used a sketch from the PageMaps U card class I took; a very loose interpretation. The second card was based on StashBuster's third challenge.
From that line I managed two layouts, the first was HERE, plus two cards. I have some ribbon, a round diecut and a few bling dots left. There was some of the Cherry paper left, but it was pretty thrashed and there was practically nothing left of the other two patterns.
I also managed to use Pinterest to menu plan, but it was more from rearranged dinners than intentionally planning from it. I didn't end up cooking last Friday, so I have that recipe moved to tonight.
I did make this OMGoodness awesome Lemon Buttermilk Sheet Cake. I was a lemon shy of the recipe and I didn't have enough powdered sugar for the glaze, so I cut it in half. You wouldn't know it though! Moist, lemony, Springtime in a cake.
I paired the cake with these Cilantro Lime Tacos for our in-law dinner on Monday. I doubled the recipe, but otherwise made it as called for. They were so good. It'll be a great hot-day recipe, they were just so fresh. I had people all over the place on Monday, so it was the perfect make ahead. You could do it for a "running around" night or so you can go watch a playoff game and crafting away.
I still have a couple recipes to make, kinda snacky things, that I just haven't had the time to pull together.
It's supposed to be mid-70's today and I have a walk and a ton of other things to deal with.
