Spotlight on Rebellious & On A Whimsy

I am so excited about Prima's Rebellious line by Adrienne Looman. It really allowed me to go crazy with cute product. Adrienne's style really rubbed off on me and I definitely love the outcome. This page is a little more layered and chaotic than my comfort zone, but I really enjoyed stepping out and creating something different. The photo is of my friends at my Graduation party from May 2007.

Working with Fancy Pants' On A Whimsy was a real hoot. It was just perfect for a recent visit to the zoo with my friend and her children. I love how playful and colorful this line is. Its great for any spring or summer outdoor activities. Working with versatile paper is great when it comes to paper crafting.

I challenge you to try something out of your normal comfort zone. If you are a messy scrapper-try something clean and simple. If you are like me, try scrapping during the day if you are a night scrapper. Its really interesting to see how things come out when you try something new and different! And please, share any of your creations here.

heather--just wanted you to know i like newspaper/notebook looking stuff. im a sucker for the really cheap clear stamp singles too. i don't really do girly, although i wouldn't mind some primas that had some sorta script/text print on them if they make those. xoxo

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.
