How to:

Anybody who's ever roasted a marshmallow knows there's a right way to do it and wrong ways. And if you don't do it like you should, then your way is wrong.

Am I right?

I thought so.

Coupla years ago, my daughter's best friend married an Aussie and several of his country-men and women came to Canada to help him get married and at the same time made it a point to enjoy some Canadian winta flava.

We took them for a sleigh ride, followed by a weinie roast and capped off with s'mores! But first it was necessary to instruct them in the correct way of roasting marshmallows.

(Most marshmallows didn't even make it to the s'more stage. But that's ok. Roasted marshmallows alone are good too.)

Here're the layouts to document the event.

Well, the sleigh ride and the marshmallows at least. The weinie roast is yet to come.

The first one was done for a challenge a Love is in the Details to do a 2-pager which is the only kind of layout I ever used to do. So it was good to try one on again!
And the "how to:" layout is for A Cherry on Top challenge to use a border punch (which was a good challenge seeing as how I've NEVER used this punch yet!!), using a SketchyThursday sketch! Oh! And there's some more of that MacTac!
