somewhere over the rainbow...

Somewhere over the rainbow there is something DeLovely....

...inked up a new PTI set:)

I was inspired by Card Patterns #68:

Here's a little tidbit about me...I'm consistent = boring. Once I find something I like...I can like it everyday for a long, long time...LOL. Take for instance Trader Joe's Roasted Beet and Chicken Salad. I love the stuff...I can eat it everyday...and it is only $3.99. Hmmm...$3.99 x 5 = a whole lotta crafty supplies...

So what I do is buy a lot of the same ingredients and store them at work...I have salads everyday for lunch:) I've found that peeps either love beets...or hate beets. I personally didn't discover them until this year and let's be honest, anything would taste good with a delish balsamic vinaigrette and some feta cheese:)

It wasn't going to be long before I scrapped something food oriented...it's an asian thing to take pics of food...just ask my oldest brother...he's always taking pictures of food...

This is when I should insert that I like my Black Eyed Peas! For those that might not know, my layout title is a play on words based on the BEP song lyrics from, Boom Boom Pow. Yup, that's me crackin' myself up {again}...

All the patterned paper is Sassafras.

I was inspired by this Sketchy Thursdays challenge:

Here's to a easy smeasy Monday....please.

  7. Your card is just "delovely".
    The salad not so lovely. I could do the greens and the feta not sure I would like the beets. Had them as a child and hated them.

    Fabulous job on the scrapbook page. I need to get busy and scrap more.

  14. *giggle* your play on words is very funny Amy! I am a total beet lover though...roast them whole in the oven and they are like heaven. Pickle them and slice them on salads..divine, puree them into Borcht (beet soup) and they do indeed rock.
    Great cards, cute LO.

  26. great card and layout. you are SO funny, so crafty and NOW so crafty. Must be all those beets. I too love beets. Beet greens and pickled beets. I will have to try the salad. Man that sounds good. I love all the ingredients you mentioned. I went to Aldi's today (owned by Trader Joe's). It was OK. My car seems to be just the same. Runs really rough I guess its just like its owner!!! NOT LOL!! : (
