Having A BBQ

It's that time of year again when Dad starts pulling out the BBQ and throwing a few steaks or burgers on the grill for dinner instead of heating up the kitchen. Of course, here in California, you can pretty much BBQ year 'round with the mild temperatures we have and with a good patio cover, it could be raining like crazy and you could still pull out the grill.

This image is from a MFT set called Who's That Grillin Guy and is stamped in memento tuxedo black on MFT perfect panels twice then colored with prismacolor markers with one set of images set aside for popping up later. I added some red ice stickles randomly on the popped up grill to make it look like "red hot" coals were underneath the steaks. Of course, our cook just has to have a huge plate of steaks ready to take inside while trying to pile more on top.

Here's a close up of the main image. I found some buttons to add from my stash, threaded them, and then added some ribbon over the Basic Grey June Bug paper that just reminded me of a picnic blanket.
