Five Guys' Divine Fries

... and burgers! It's one of AJ's favorite haunts. Here, he's enjoying one with grilled onions and mushrooms. That boy does loooove to eat. He's in his old taekwondo uniform - I'm still catching up this year - because we're celebrating his earning his deputy black belt. He'll test for his first poome this fall. The breaking part of the deputy test required him to break a thin cinder block with a hammer fist. That means with the side of his fist, pinkie-side down. When he struck it, he hit the sticky-outy bones in his wrist against the corner of the block. It didn't break, but it sounded like his wrist had. He shook off the adult instructors and, sobbing, struck that (add your own expletive) block three more times before it finally broke. It was very difficult to watch.

He was bruised, but no real damage.

This also is for the challenges at:
Practical Scrappers - Use just one photo
Scrap and Stamp Saturday - Paper piecing (The burgers and fries are pieced.)
Scrap Tiffany - Use this sketch:
The rest of the recipe:
Bazzill CS
I used Nesties to cut the circles for the burgers and the scalloped circle for the lettuce. I also used labels 4 to make the back of the fries container. Burger and fries are inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Thickers letters and some cheapies from AC Moore
Deckle scissors for the center circle.
The 'ketchup' and 'mustard' splotches are done with a CHF stamp from one of the GM sets. I used Fired Brick Distress Ink and a yellow Stampabilities pad from deep within the stash.

Oh... and here he is in his snazzy new black belt uniform (It's got red, too, because he's under 12.) and without a food item being inhaled:

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please leave a comment and come again soon!
Happy hump day!
