Recipe Challenge Monday

Good Monday morning!! I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, had lots of turkey, and got your Christmas shopping off to a good start! I had a great Thanksgiving, but not so much shopping off my list yet. It's a work in progress!! Today the challenge at the Recipe Challenge Blog is to share a recipe with ANYTHING but turkey!! I don't think I'd ever get tired of turkey (ESPECIALLY my Mom's), but I know a little bit goes a long way for some people. This recipe is one I've had for a while, but it was also shared by one of my stamp club girls for our monthly recipe page. It's a tried and true Paula Deen recipe that was found in her magazine.
I used some of the fabulous kitchen paper that Julie sent me from the Scrapbook Store At Your Door for the background squares, and the ears of corn were made with oval punches. I drew the checkerboard kernels in by hand, and colored them with markers. The cornsilk bow was made by fraying twill ribbon, and just tying a knot in the center of the strip. That pretty much does it for this page. Please check out the Recipe Challenge Blog, and play along with us. It's a great way to share your artwork, and get new recipes to boot!!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a glorious day filled with things that you love, and happy stamping!!
Love ya,

Lorie. Yet again you've excelled yourself. This is so clever, clean and crisp.
OOh! lots of 'c's going on there! Ha Ha. Corn from punches! Magic. How do you think 'em up my friend. I'm in awe.
'See' you tomorrow on PK! It promises to be awesome.

You are so creative, Lorie. The little corns and the cornsilk bow are amazing. The papers you chose are great and the Corn Salad sounds delicious.

Terrific job, Lorie!!! I love the paper pieced corn and the corn silk bow. So creative!

This makes me want to create a recipe book for my dd, but she hates to cook. lol

OH Lorie, this is just deliciously cute! Those little ears of corn are just darling! What a terrific eye for detail to hand-draw them, and then to add the little touch of country straw - divine! This looks like a scrumptious recipe - we are a HUGE corn family here and this recipe is no exception to sounding delish! Delightful :)
