Grilling Fever LO

Springtime in our house means the start of Grilling Season.  As soon as Daylight Savings Time hits, my husband feels the need to grill almost every night (even when it is still freezing outside)!  Next week is my hubby's Birthday and he is getting a new grill!  I thought it would be appropriate to make him a LO for it!  He even came up with the name for this page!  I think he did a pretty good job!  I can't wait to get some pics of him with his new grill!

I've been wanting to use the burger and dog since the Simply Charmed cart came out! 

I sponged both of them and popped them up with dimensionals!

This little chef looks a lot like my Hubby!  Happy Birthday Honey! 

I curved my Hot Diggity Dog Clear Stamp on my block and stamped around the circle for a cute little border!

Products Used:
  • Stampin' Up! Solid CS, Classic Ink Pad and Dimensionals
  • Bo Bunny Double Dot Paper
  • Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge (Hotdog and Hamburger)
  • Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge (Circle)
  • Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge (Title)
