August Challenge at The Paper Mixing Bowl

It's August and the new recipe is ready at The Paper Mixing Bowl!  It's time to check out the challenge and see what you can whip up for this month!

The inspiration for the recipe was lime margaritas!  Which took me back to a birthday.  I can't remember which 29th birthday it was, but I got to go to one of my favorite restaurants back home, and all of my favorite people were there.  Well, except for my husband. He got to go to Iraq for his second time.

Here is my version of the recipe:

I used the Main Ingredient: lime.  The paper is Prima, which I used gesso on and then inked with Dylusions Cut Grass and Fresh Lime and Fresh Cut Grass Distress Ink. I stamped and embossed some compasses on the paper.  I think I have the Main Ingredient covered.

I used four of the Utensils: A postcard, torn paper, something transparent and cheesecloth.

Finally, for the Directions, I journaled about my favorite vacation...which my favorite vacations are the ones that I have taken with my friend or have gone to visit her while on vacation.

My friend is the tall one.  All my friends are the "tall one."  I miss you, my tall friend!  Until next time!

Make sure you enter your August Recipe at The Paper Mixing Bowl.  You've got the whole month to get your entry done!
