Altered Item Challenge

Altered Item Challenge

Take something around your house - an old petaloo container, a paint can, a jar, or even a babies board book. You could even go to the store and buy a tin, a lunch box, maybe even some wooden letters. - and alter it. What does alter mean? Spice it up. Add some scrapbooking paper some ribbons, flowers, rub-ons, stickers, brads. The list is endless. Make it your own. Beautify your piece and make it work for you.

You will need to post your pics to the blog by midnight your time on Sept 25th to be eligible for a prize. The winner will receive a prize pack. The winner will be posted sometime on the 26th of Sept.

I will up load some examples soon!

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.
