Lasting Memories DT Challenge - A "Real" Treat

This week over at Lasting Memories Challenge blog, our challenge is to use a recipe on your layout....BUT not a crafty one. ;) It has to be a real one! That everyone can try out on their own. Whether it be food, drinks, bath salts, home remedies, etc. is completely up to you! :) 

Here is my layout for the challenge:
I started with paper from the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack. My title and martini glass are dimensional stickers from Soft Spoken that I just bought for this layout. I used the green and orange from the title for my mats and flower and the blue flower in my dress for the blue mats, mini rosettes, and envelope. 

The tag is removable to see my recipe! See below...

Glitter flower is Recollections and mini rosette is made from a strip that is 1"x6" and I inked it with pink and used a pink gem for the center.

Buttons are from my stash. I used Pink Sorbet twine in some of them and on a couple of the pink ones I used Pink Gumball Perfect Pearls. I have never used these before so I was just playing around with my new toys ;) (left pink button)

Flourishes are glitter chipboard stickers from Michaels.

I used my brand new Stampendous Frantage Shabby Pink embossing enamel on the edges of my envelope. Let me tell you, this stuff is GORGEOUS in real life. It's whie enamel with pink powders and gold flecks that melt in when heated. Oh it's pretty! :) I also used my new Fiskars Apron Lace edge punch and Pink Sorbet twine from the twinery.

Here is my tag cut from George and Basic Shapes at 3" that includes my recipe for the drinks we had that night, here is what it says; 
Slippery Nipples:
1/2 Baileys Irish Cream
1/2 Butterscotch Schnapps (Yumm)
Use a 1oz shot glass

I used my TH tiny attacher for some tiny staples on my tag.

Close up of them both

You can kindof see how pretty that powder is!

Super pretty gold fleck and light pink in white enamel.. LOVE!
