Prima's IN! KI Memories too

I'm so excited to announce that Prima is in. Well part of it anyway. I'd ordered the almost the whole Little Boo line and only the flowers and the rub-ons came in but I'm sure the paper will be in soon. I also got the Christmas Essentials 5.

The felt matties are in. I ordered the Diamond, floral, and stars in black.
They also sent some Essentials 4 (Neon colors) and the 12" h x 6" w build a book pack. Oh and my favorite of ALL the pebbles. I ordered vintage toys, story book, and wonder lust. These are super cute and would look good on any page but especially with vintage stuff!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pebbles.

This is the KI Memories Sheer Delights. Great clear die cut papers. Beautiful patterns make great back grounds, mattes.

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.

Do you have a quick recipe? email me
