Grillin' & Chillin' BBQ Hop ~

Hi there! Have the days gotten shorter? I swanny I don't know where the time has gone. Meanwhile, my scrapbooking projects keep piling up so I thought I would take this opportunity to begin catching up. It has been so long, I think I forgot how. I was mo-jo-less! Anyhoo, my husband and personal chef LOVES to grill out/smoke every chance he gets. He lives and breathes BBQ (kinda like me and papercrafting) so I created a layout to honor this oh so wonderful man.

He has lots of foodie friends on FB and they all share photos/recipes so I had no problem finding pictures to choose from. I will add the journaling in the space next to the tree and move that little picture up a bit...I think...
Yes, those are boiled eggs wrapped in sausage! I think they are called Scotch Eggs. Yummy! When dinner is ready....he ALWAYS says "come n get it"! lol Am I not the luckiest gal in the world?

I bought these tiny silverware pieces at Hobby Lobby in the doll house accessory dept because I just KNEW I would use them for something...one day. And look how cute!! (yes, my adorable husband decorates my plate just like at those fancy restaurants)
It gets hot in Mississippi in the summer so a tiki umbrella becomes a necessity for those all-day smokes!

P.S. I would like to send a big shout out to my mother who gave me a Cricut Expression about 2-1/2 years ago. I think I have about figured it out lolol! Me and my Cricut have a love/hate relationship. Thankfully, this project was on the Love side! Thanks Mom for your support  & encouragement (hugs)
