Monkey business...and orange banana cheesecake

~ I think I mentioned before that one of my favorite types of swaps in which to participate is for 6X6 recipe pages. I enjoy making these so much, as they go together quickly and allow me to easily try new stamps, techniques, etc. without feeling too committed. That may or may not make sense, but I know what I mean!! ;-) They also serve another purpose by allowing me to collect all of my favorite tried and true recipes in one format...and in one place.This recipe page is for Orange Banana Cheesecake...mmm...mmm!! It was great fun to create, and yes, I used some sources as inspiration! First, Sketches! {by tamara}'s Recipe Challenge #16 for this week encouraged me to used the following on a layout: real or faux stitching, ribbon, and paper tearing. The white background, rather than the light yellow I originally intended to use, was called for in this week's challenge by Sisterhood of Scrap, which was to create a card or layout using a white or black background. I felt that the white had no borders, so I used some orange ink around the outer edge and was much happier!! Last, but certainly not least, the layout was inspired by Page Plans' Week 23 Sketch. My new stitching stamp and the spotlighting technique added extra layers of cuteness to this fairly simple design.
Hugs to you,
