    Here is my project for Friend Chicken day. It is 2 recipe cards for my niece's Recipe book I am making her. As I was born in Kentucky and grew up eating friend chicken, I felt this day was for me. I wanted to do a page with KFC on it. I have a photo of the Big Chicken in Marietta Georgia. What is the Big Chicken you ask? It is a KFC restaurant in Marietta that has become a landmark and scenic stop for tourist. I lived in Georgia 23 years. The building is shaped like a chicken and the beak opens and eyes rotate. It is a fun stop for kids and the young at heart.





    The Southern Fried Chicken is my recipe. I have used it for years. Although I never measure the ingredients and it often ends up with other spices in it too.

    The diecut chicken legs and are from Cricut Cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls. You can find them on the keyboard Accessories 2 key shift row 2 button 3 cut at 6.16" and 3.90". Let's Eat from Locker Talk row 2 button 3 Phrase/layer key and shift at 3".

    The digi image of the boy eatting chicken/turkey leg is from 2 for Tuesday. You can find it here. http://digitaltuesday.blogspot.com/2010/06/recipe-challenge-day-3.html

    The Fried Chicken on the plate and sentiment are from Create with TLC. You can find it in Paulette's store here. http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/studio/tlc4lo/0/0/0/fried%20chicken

    Copics used for the boy eating are are E13, E17-hair, E000, E00, E01, E02-skin, BG11-shirt, YR01, YR04, YR07-sweater, E04-lips. Stardust clear Gelly Roll Pen was used on the buttons.

    The recipe cards are 8 1/2" x 11". These are going into a special book for recipe pages.

    One more thing I decided to show you the Big Chicken. I took this photo December 2010. we were stopped at a traffic light hence all the electric wires in my photo.
