I have crossed to the dark side!

When I opened my store I told myself and a few others that I would be staying away from all things Disney. I mean they can be bought on any corner anywhere! Well today I crossed over to the other side and ordered the update to a line by Creative Imaginations that will be shipping in November. I can't wait. It has a new look and a new feel. It is much more animated than in the past and is just truly Mickey.

I ordered the entire line because there was just so much cool stuff. There will be large card stock circles down to a center journaling circle. There are a couple of albums one is a chipboard album that each page is a larger size with great shapes to decorate. The next is a mini book that can be left alone and used to get autographs at Disney or used as a mini album. NOTE: Personally I would combine it. I would add pics when you get home of getting each of the characters autographs.]

This album is so much more than a bland autograph book! The last album is an 8 x 8 instant album. I've been to Disney with my three kids and let me tell you when I got home I was so thankful for some ready made stuff. I did an album for each child about their trip to Disney and I used a Creative Memories album and kit where all I had to do was paste what they had in the example! This album would be a great gift for Grandma or the kids who want a record of the even with out stressing your creativity.
Oh and did I mention the pages? There are ready made pages too. When I was doing my Disney album I know I would hit creative road blocks every so often where I felt like I had been doing the same thing forever. I would go and copy a boring simple layout and add some spice and my creativity would spike again. These pages will be so simple to place some pictures in add some journaling some ribbon or brads or even paint, slickers or stickles.

I'm so excited about this coming out. I will be going back to Disney with the kids in the spring and I will probable visit Disney Land when I am out in California for winter CHA. This will give me new stuff to play with! I am sorry that there are only the two pictures. As soon as I can get blogger to let me download the rest of them I will show you everything.

Very cool and exciting. Wish I could meet you there again but I'm not on any design teams that can get me into CHA. I bet the kids will have a blast!

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.
