More Scrart and my New Oven!

Hi everyone! Well after a big hiccup with this layout in Maz's journal, I finally got it fillished(that's Millie-speak for finished!) As you can see from the pictures, it's quite layered. I used Gesso, textured paste, aquadhere, acrylic paints, oil pastels and mod podge. So, it took a few days as each different layer required some drying time. The CJ was on my scrart desk drying. I remember thinking that I hadn't heard Millie for a while - what could she be up to? I poke my head around the corner. I see her. She's propped up on her bent knees on my swivel chair in front of my desk. I see the journal, and I watch her as she puts paper over the photograph with glue and say "paste paste paste" just like I've heard them do lately on Playschool! But it wasn't the first attach - she's been here for about 5 minutes by the look of it... BUT! somehow I managed to resurect it by peeling off the photo, and sticking on a new one. Except I had to take another one - and it wasn't as good and the size was out - soooooo was left with this funny border thing happening... Anyway, it turned out ok in the end. I hope Maz likes it! I enjoyed just adding and adding, layer upon layer 'pon layer - hopefully I'll get the chance to do some more of this soon. Here's a few snapshots of the double page layout...

Millie Moo was doing some of her own creating today. She's righ tinto circles atm and I wish I had some audio to go with these pics. As the hand swirls round to make the big circle it's complete with " a BIG wocket" "BIG woCKet" )tha's rocket for those of you who don't know 2 year old speak). I'm not sure why, but she's into rockets lately... How gorgeous are these!

Oooh - this one's for mum - look what I've got! It's been 5 months without an oven - only a two burner camping stove with the gas bottle on the bench top! Honestly, the day before I got this beauty I felt like a kid on Christmas eve! Made a luscious Impossible Lemon Pudding in it too - and in honour of the occassion, here's the recipe for you all to enjoy!
Impossible Lemon Pudding
1 Cup od dessicated coconut ( I only had shredded and it was fine)
1/2 cup plain flour
1 1/4 cup castor sugar
grated rind of one lemon
1/3 cup lemon juice ( I just used the juice of that one lemon)
1 1/2 cups of milk (I used 1 and 3/4 to get more runny consistency)
40g melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pouring cream to serve (vanilla ice cream here)
Preheat oven to 180 C
Combine coconut, sugar, flour and lemon rind in a large bowl.
Add the eggs, lemon juice, milk, butter and vanilla and stir until well combined.
Pour into a 4-cup capacity baking dish/casserole thingy and bake 40-45 mins or until the top is golden brown,
Allow to cool slightly before serving.
This is sooo yummy - really quick and easy to make. Hope you enjoy it!
And last but not least a couple more of the Happy Jack - have been playing around in photoshop with these - what do you think?
