Like many of you, we have a day set aside during December when we do the majority
created a border. Using the Tiny Type alphabet stickers, I mimicked the shape of the doily
to create part of the title.
Because I only added foam adhesive around the four edges of the photos,
I was able to tuck in the journaled tags behind them.
A couple of stitched X's (with Lily White Twine) helps to break up the 'boxed' look
and also gives a little soft texture.
My grandmother was a 'lunch-lady' for quite a few years.
She could make homemade yeast rolls like nobody's business!
Here is the recipe that we use for her Dish Pan Cookies...because it's
a 'lunch-lady' recipe, it does make A LOT of cookies :)
