Early Bird

This weekend I went away on a scrapbooking retreat. It was my first one ever. I had the best time at Camp Crop Alot. I was at the Americus location.

Some girls from my local scrapbooking group put this trip together and I was fortunate enough to have been invited. I was so excited that I was able to get 5 12 x 12 layouts, 2 8.5 x 11 and 2 6 x 12's done. It's a great reminder of why I do what I do.

When I went I had planned on working with Round & Round by My Minds Eye but forgot to take it with me. So I worked with Early Bird instead.

This layout is of Elvis's birth home. I used bazzil craft, Early Bird Borders, Stickles Red, Turquoise, and Yellow.

This is a two page layout I did of the kitchen. Again using Early Bird Borders,

You were scrapping up a storm girl. Love the way you used the Cosmo papers - they are perfect for the era

Thanks so much! It's so rare that I get a chance to scrap I was beginning to wonder if I'd forgotten how.

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.
