It's True...I Was Made For You

So do you ever buy just ONE sheet of an awesome double sided paper and wish you had gotten 2? This was the case with this particular paper. I wanted to utilize both sides, so this was my solution. I cut out a heart and simply reversed it so I could see both sides of the paper. I folded one side of the heart down and used a contrasting cardstock so I could journal a bit. Then in the empty heart spot, I used a page from a vintage german storybook I found at our thrift store for 25 cents! I have no idea what it says, I just love the little birdie illustration at the bottom.

Since the photo was taken at Sea World in San Antonio, I used a whale chipboard covered in turquoise Stickles. Then I used a KI Memories Softies Black Corner to imitate the spray coming out of his blow hole. I have a small collection of vintage stuff (b/c really, that's what it is, just "stuff."). Recently I acquired these taxi cab coupons which I used on the layout.

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
