Newton's Nook Designs May Release - Day 2

Welcome back Friends, Followers & Hoppers!  Today Jennifer is revealing an adorable set perfect for BBQ invites or scrapping those summer picnics -- Winston's BBQ:
We received an AAFES gift card as a wedding present from some of my husband's colleagues; we used it to purchase our first gas grill.  I had taken some pictures of my husband breaking it in for the first time to commemorate the occasion and knew this set would be perfect to create some journaling cards for my pocket page layout:

Here are some close ups of the 3 x 4 journaling cards I created to accompany the photos:

(I like the hamburgers framing the journaling, hee hee hee!)

The C7 marker bled a little bit, grrrr!  And the grass was in my scrap stash (we are moving soon and a lot of my craft supplies are already packed up, so I am working with what I have here).  I used red, yellow & orange markers to ink up the 'flames' coming from the grill and used a speech bubble die cut to make the grill give my hubby a compliment on his skillz (it looks like it is talking anyway, doesn't it?)

Would you like to win 'Winston's BBQ'?
