VIDEO: Shadow Hacks Two Ways!

*Compensated affiliate links used where possible at zero cost to you. No posts are ever sponsored or paid.*

I have SUCH easy hacks for you for shadows and reflections. I always make ghastly shapes if I try to do them by hand so I thought I would share my go-to hacks today! These are so, so easy. 

These are the two looks you get. I used this beautiful background stamp with this sweet deer set. The ink is the water reactive Splash ink and then I used markers for the rest. What a sweet little scene these make together - these two stamps go together like peas and carrots! (Which, by the way - don't go together at all, and whoever came up with that saying was deranged. Maybe it was a baby.)

The video is now part of my Shadows & Reflections Master Class!

Last night I made one of my new faves - egg roll in a bowl! I saw the original recipe in a Whole 30 group I'm in, and I don't really like pork and made a few other tweaks, and it's delicious! I haven't tried it with her spicy mayo, but her original recipe is linked in my modified one so check it out! Here's my version. You can serve it with those wonton strips from the produce section if you miss that crunch of an actual egg roll but want fewer calories - that's what I did.
