Rachel- **BASICGREY**

Today's altered project is from Rachel and it features BasicGrey's Urban Prarie. She used a memory box to store a hand written recipe from her Grandmother. "She used to make oatcakes for us all the time, now I can display the recipe in my kitchen ready to use and not worry about getting oatcake mix all over it."

Memory Box
BasicGrey Urban Prarie Pattern Paper- Bountiful, Wild Flowers, Patchwork Quilt, Bonnet
BasicGrey Two Scoops Heart Smudge stamps
Sticky Foam Pads
Tiny orange gems
Light brown, dark brown and bright pink inkpads
Ranger glossy accents
Pink and yellow wire
Mat the item you wish to preserve (in this case a recipe) onto Bountiful pattern paper and trim to fit inside frame and ink the edges with pale brown ink.
Mat a small photograph onto Bountiful pattern paper and layer over the recipe sheet with sticky foam pads.
Stamp swirls across the bottom and in the top left corner using the two scoops heart smudge stamps.
Cut elements from the remaining patterned papers and use to decorate the sheet. Use the pink and gold wires to add antenna to the bees and butterfly.
Add glossy accents to the bees and butterfly and decorate desired areas with tiny orange gems.
