Spaghetti Lover

Today is just my day! I get to scrap all day long despite my normal routine...still have laundry to fold and dishes to wash though...never ending story huh? Nevertheless I enjoy today! Why? Because for the first time I combine artsy and creativity on this layout. I know that sounds normal but for the first time I sort of scribble my title with 0.1 pigment black pen for extra dimension after I filled in the fonts with Copic markers. I often do this on cards, never on layouts.
This layout is made to partake in Michelle's DT Challenge that is still running until Thursday the 12th day this month so hop over to Let's Scrap and check out Michelle's challenge HERE. Michelle only wants us to use our humble cardstock and the only extras allowed are ribbons and brads. What else can I think of except artwork and creativity! Here's my layout...
This layout features my little girl Afza back in May eating my cooking...she loves eating and spaghetti is one of her favorites. The recipe is not mine; from someone else via email. I love to have extra chillies for my spaghetti, hence the photo above.
Pretty sketch by Cheri O'Neill.
Materials used: 12x12 Cardstock, stash of cardstock, Carla Craft and Sunlit punches, Tim Holtz distress ink, Kaisercraft inkpad, Copic Markers, brads, 0.1 waterproof drawing pen and my trusty printer
...some close-up pictures...
I printed the title and color+blend it with Copic; and happily outline the letters and
edges with pigment pen. 
I pleated the stripe of cardstock for the banners.
The keyword here is patience to produce these beautiful paper laces!
The flowers are handmade after spending a while thinking of a way
to create new flowers especially for this layout. Personally speaking,
I named my flowers 'spaghetti', lol.
Here's my tutorial I'm sharing with you:- 
I hope you will try it out :)
My oh my...look at her...smudged...teeheehee. That says mom's cooking is just the best! That said, I wish you happy cooking. Have a nice day.
