I want some Sketti please!

I am so excited to show this project!! It just popped into my head one night that I wanted to make a shadowbox for my kitchen. I love these fat chefs (I can relate to the big guys....ahemm.....me likey to eat!)

I created this chef myself in Silhouette Design Studio....I love this program! I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I used the Timeless Twine's "Natural" colored twine for my "Sketti" and then I knotted up the "Cherry Red" to make some-a-meat aballs!! I put a couple strings of speghetti and balls on the page to add a little to the page. I used some really nice Momenta Metals in the corner.

I used a checkered pattern from the Silhouette Studio since I didn't have any checkered paper. I had some really cute spoon, fork and knives charms so I added them to the "Bob's kitchen" tag.

I put Bob's kitchen on the tag as a joke because everything I make I show my hubby and I always say do you think Its ok, do you think I should add something and he always says well you could put "BOB" something or other on it here or there so to make him feel good before I showed it to him I put that tag on it.

He was quite happy. Its the little things right! ha ha he is a character. I can't wait to make something to add his fishing pictures to. While we were on vacation he took up fishing and he had a lot of fun. I am not saying that the vodka cranberry cocktails he had didn't enhance the adventure but it was so fun to watch him and he always does goofy poses for me as I am snapping his pic. Quite the ham he is.

I purchased this shadowbox (well it was a tshirt display thinga doohickey) it was $9.99 but I had a 40% off coupon but when I got to the checkout it rang up $4.99 so then with 40% off it was a deal right!

I curled my twine as I had told you how to do in a previous post. These probably aren't the best photos its really hard to photograph something with glass on it. I took the first one before i put it in the box.

I hope you like it!!
