Magic Page 8 & 9

I'm so sorry if you checked back last night and didn't find my next Magic Album pages. I was wrapping Christmas gifts last night and I just forgot all about it.

For any newcomers - I'm working with the Magic Instant Album to show you some quick and inexpensive things to spruce it up if you don't just want a flat paper album when you are finished.

I was having some trouble coming up with stuff but as soon as I looked over the images of the pages, 8 & 9 jumped out and caught my attention. How many of us have gone to a fire work show anywhere and saw only white flat fireworks? At first when I sat down with my Stickles I only had solid colors for the fireworks in mind so I traced one in Xmas red. Then I realized that I didn't have any other bold colors. So then I took and used Water Fall Blue, Aqua, Xmas red & Crystal all on each of the fireworks. Since the blue and the aqua and crystal as such muted colors I used a lot more of them then the red but it still came out looking AWESOME!

You may also notice that I added stickles to all the dot circles on the two pages. One the circle around the castle I inverted the color scheme that the paper had. I thought that the castle should be highlighted.

I'm sorry that the scan is so dull. My camera cord is hiding this morning so I can not upload my other photos. I will try to add some to this blog later. Unless I forget again I will have another post later with another page. When I was working on this album yesterday I really got some ideas.

Thanks for reading!

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.
