Making & Baking....

Today is the second last day of school holidays & we are all feeling a little sad about that but also trying to enjoy getting lots of relaxing in while we can.
I started this card last night & finished it off today.
It's for the Cuttlebug Challenges Count Down to CHA weekly challenges.
The theme of the challenge was to make a woodsy type card including the colours green, orange & blue.

I've used an assortment of October Afternoon papers & the Swiss Dots & Distressed Stripes embossing folders.

Molly was excited about doing some cooking today so we donned our aprons & got busy.
She chose to make Rocky Road Popcorn.
We popped the popcorn the old fashioned way & she was giggling while watching the popcorn popping like crazy inside the pot. Microwave popcorn might be quick & easy but no where near as much fun.
After waiting very impatiently for it to be ready to eat we all tucked into some & it was YUMMY!!!
Here is a pic of my proud little cook with her creation.

And here is a pic of our delicious popcorn.

OK, I'm off to find some more fun things to do.
Hope your Sunday is going well :)

Wow, that popcorn looks good and what a cutie is your daughter.
Saw your accordion boxes and loved them but couldn't find a tutorial. Can you tell me where I can find one if there is one?

I'll have to disagree with the other girls and say that that popcorn looks hideous! But last time I said that about your baking, it was actually pretty darn delicious!!! LOL!

Mo looks so cute in her chef gear!
