When we were given the theme of sandwiches this month, I thought, "I don't even like sandwiches, how am I suppose to pull this off?" I was pretty stumped so I turned to Yahoo images to get some inspiration. What I found were two awesome pictures (http://www.flickr.com/photos/turtlemom_nancy/1357348598/) and (http://www.izmerenie.ru/media/magazine/3DF275BF-6B35-44DE-99A7-1D5AE3B8F758/Hamburger.jpg).


They were so fun and perfect for a sandwich theme, and that really got me going creatively.



I picked out some fun pics of my daughter and I, then I sketched a rough draft of my intended finished sandwich, and finally I went to town on creating each sandwich layer in different patterned papers, textures, and layers. I made 2 of each sandwich layer topping (4 of the sandwich slices), and layered and layered away, until the finished sandwich was a whopping 12 inches tall... now that's a sandwich! I diamond stickled my "love sandwich" title and dotted on "oats" on the bread slices. I topped it off with a toothpick and paper pieced olive at the top and a handwritten "recipe" that reads:

"2 slices of patience
3 pinches of snuggles
1 teaspoon of gentleness
3 extra large hugs
2 scoops of joy
4 pounds of kisses
And this is how you create love."

I hope this inspires you to create your own awesome love sandwich of your own! :)
