If Elle Woods Grilled...

she'd have a blinged-out Weber and a matching(platinum!) spatula! I don't grill myself, but I'm confident some of you and your friends out there know how to start a fire! I added the little crown and "queen" from my new "Hip Hop" set to Rupa's "King of the Grill" :)

I made this for the color challenge this week, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink. All paper is SU! except for the paper piecing which was done with DCVW adhesive mat pack, awesome for little piecing like the handle!!

I attached some adhesive rhinestones to my celery colored button brads from Gina K. Hope if you click on the pic you can see my "flame broiled background"?? I used my CB Distressed Stripes folder to emboss the chocolate chip CS and then rubbed my Burnt Umber Palette ink over the embossing (which I also used to stamping my images) I really like the texture it added. But if it doesn't say "hamburger patty" to you, then maybe just "deck"...


Okay, stop back later for another girly "King of the Grill" project! ;) (you can probably guess...)

Ha..Ha..Ha. Very cute! I have a friend who grills. Spring and summer, a beer in one hand and spatula in the other. I am going to make one for her, when mine arrive.

Melanie, you make me laugh sometimes! You are just so creative! Now someone MAY have thought of a pink grill, but one as blinged out and plaid....no way. And then to connect it to Elle Woods! You are my hero of the week! Thanks....it feels good to laugh out loud! (BTW, that was a total compliment.)
