Spaghetti & Meatzaballs-Mangia!

 This my first DT entry for My Time to Craft.  The current challenge, #147, is A La Carte (Food).  I knew as soon as I saw this challenge what I wanted to do.  I had to search far and wide to find this digi, but I finally did.  He's from The Paper Shelter.  I had never heard of them before, but I'm glad I found them.  I'll definitely be visiting again. Their digis are priced very reasonably.

I grew up in an Italian family.  I can really relate to this.  Our big family meals were always pasta.  It's my famliy's favorite too.  When I make sauce I usually make at least a gallon loaded with meatballs and sausage.  When I lived back east I used to be able to get pork braciole to put in it...yum!  That's not available here.  I should learn to make it myself.  I colored this with Copics and added some Colorbox Chalk Ink around the edges of the sign.  The fork and spoon are from Taylored Expressions. I mangled the fork a bit getting it on there.  I painted them with Twinkling H2Os to give them a little sparkle.

Copics:  C1, C3, C5, C7
              E00, E02, E18, E19, E29, E33, E34, E50, E51, E53, E97
              R11, R21, R22, R29, 559

Mangia!  Mangia!
