Week 317: MENU

Don't have the week's meals planned quite yet?  Maybe this week's gallery will give you some ideas!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!  Right now, they're doing a stencil hop and all stencils are 15% off!

Let's see what the design team & our guest designer have created for inspiration!
