OCL Challenge 50

Happy Friday!   Hope you are ready for a great weekend!  I am still away from home up in Morgan Hill, CA while my husband finishes his training classes.  Since it is Friday, I knew it was time for the Our Craft Lounge challenge.   This morning I went to their blog and looked to see what was expected in the challenge.  When I saw  the post I thought there would be no way for me to meet this challenge.  There just isn’t enough room in the motorhome to carry all the materials I have at home and there were a few I would need.

So you are probably thinking she could go to a Scrapbook Store or a Michaels.  There isn't any close to where we are staying.  O.K. what could I do?   I could trace a circle,  that's easy enough but, I wasn’t sure how to come up with the scallops.  After spending my time looking through my materials and the pictures I stamp out before we left home, I figured out I could meet the challenge!  So here it is. 

I chose the OCL stamp: “Granny’s Secrets.  This cake is just too funny for words for those of us who are getting a little older.  I found a package of dolies in my materials so I cut part of it away to get the scallops.  The sentiment is in the the stamp set but, I didn't have the set with me so I printed out by hand.  I must say, I am very happy with the results.
