How to decorate food with die cut seaweed

I love to put little personal touches on everything-today a frozen pizza was my palette of choice and my medium was roasted seaweed. My tool was a heart and wing Sizzix die.
My inspiration came from the super cute and idea packed book Deliciously Decorative Cookies: 50 Stylish, Tasty Treats to Make and Decorate.
It features tutorials on how to make rice paper flowers and I thought about trying to decorate food with seaweed. To make the shapes I die cut hearts and winds with my Sizzix die cutter.
I cooked the pizza as directed and placed my die cut seaweed heart and wings right on the melted cheese. They settled right in and looked cute! I was thinking these seaweed embellishments would look cute on a bowl of hummus to bring to a party or on a bowl of macaroni and cheese?

Adult coloring page with quote: "We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours"

Over at Craftside there is the page from the book 20 Ways to Draw a Cat that features 20 ways to Draw a hedgehog. I used one of the hedgehogs as my guide to draw one as an outline so that I could include it in the adult coloring page that features the quote, "We are all searching for someone whose demons play well with ours."

I had a lot of fun coloring in all the tiny little hearts that form the letters. I did a bunch of different color combos, stripes, random and all the same color family. I colored in the hedgehogs in different color ways as well.

NOTE: I am playing around with file types and settings. Please leave me a comment if you find anything odd about the file when you download it, open it and print it out.  I noticed that my first few had a slight gray haze on them.
