Halloween Recipes 0-T

Here's some more Halloween Recipe Layouts for you!!  Here is O & P.  P needs a little help, but nothing a big fat pumpkin on the page wouldn't help!
 Here is Q & R.  I love the Rootbeer layout.  I should remember to do that some day!
 Here is S & T.  I made "S"
 So, of course you get a close up of it!  I picked my two favorite letters to do the swap, K is one, and S is my other favorite letter.  Nope, no one in the family starts with S.  I just like it!  I thought Spaghetti Sundaes was fun, especially if you make them in a parfait glass.
The last tomorrow!

Halloween Recipes A-H

I joined in one of the funnest swaps the other day over at Splitcoaststampers.  It was a recipe swap of course, and you picked a letter of the alphabet to make a recipe around the Halloween theme! 
PERFECT!!!  I love it!  So I signed up for a couple of spots, and sent them in, and here is what I got back!
This is A & B....  It had to be a Halloween layout...
 Here is C & D, and you had to make sure that you put your letter of the alphabet on the layout.
 Here is E & F.  Now I am not sure what Halloween Ghosts have to do with E, it should have been Eerie Ghosts...
 Here is G and H.  I love this Ghoul Eyes.  I think its my favorite one...
 So here is a close up of the layout for you.  I don't know why I love it so much, but I do!!

More tomorrow!!

Halloween Treats

I got a scrapbooking kit from ETM.  I love, love Halloween stuff, but you already know that!!  So, I was in a store the other day and found some really cute little bottles.  You know me, so in my cart they went!
I bought a few of them.  I didn't know what I was going to do with them.  Then I got my kit.
One of the papers in there, had 16 little goofy Halloween monsters on it.  So I cut them out as cards to use as the background to my container.
I made a container with the cardstock in the kit.  You cut a 8 1/2 page in half, so you have two 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 sheets.  You score the long way, 1 1/4 th inch on both sides.  Then on the short side, you score at 8 1/4, 7, 6, 4 3/4th inch.  My bottles are one inch in size around, so I punched 1 inch holes in the lowest panel.  Then I folded it up to make a box.
Here's the first little monster!
 Here's a close up of one of the bottles, it has nerds in it.  They make such bright great colors!
 Here's my bottles.  I made my own tops for them, because to buy the tops, they were $1 each.  For the top.  Incredible.  So, I made my own and they work just fine!  I wanted corks, but they cost more than the bottles too.  Can't have a deal, if it ends up that way!!
 So here is the second little monster that I made.  Everything but the bottles and the nerds candy, was in my kit.  Don't you love the spider buttons?  The Boo! is felt...
 So here is the purple bottle...
Hope you like!!

Wreath & Scrapbook shares

When I went to the scrapbook crop the other day, we made these wreaths.  The idea came from the SU catty, and all of the neat ribbons there.  So, our wreath, actually had 4 rings on it, so it is a little wider and fluffier.  I am still going to add some more ribbons into it, but I thought it was really pretty, and Christmas-y.
I'm going to take the saying out of the center, and put my families photo in there...
 Then, when I had a minute to myself, I made a couple of layouts.  I don't normally do rub-ons, but I had some, so here are my two layouts.
This first one is of my home in winter time.  I tell my kids that they need to enjoy every season, and what it brings.  You can have a favorite, but you need to Enjoy!

 Here is my puppy boy, Beau.  He is so big.  He is so pretty to me.  I love his fur.  This is a rare day that he got to come in the house, so we took photos.  Normally he is in his pen with his Annie and Lonesome.  Don't worry, they are spoiled.  They have a half acre for their pen, plus two sheds.  There is also a chicken coop in their pen, they love to go mousing around it.

Hope you like, puppy kisses and all!

A couple of my recipes to catch up on.

Here are a few of my recipes that I need to catch you up on!!

I thought that this bowl was sooo cute, I had to use it on a layout.  And you already know how much I love polka dots!  Plus, the brownies are awesome... Make them in a cookie sheet!
 Egg rolls!  I was going out of my box...trying the lined paper.  I love that stuff, school things...just don't create with it enough.  So it was fun to try!  These are my boys favorite things lately!
 Egg in the middle meatloaf.  I swear it looks like eyeballs.  So this is what I make when Halloween comes along, or even for April Fools Day.  I even used spider webbing on it!
 This is for Bacon Cheeseburger Chicken.  Kim's family went nuts over this recipe, so I had to include it for you!  Hope you like it too!
If you want my kits, visit, Express the Moment to purchase them!  And even if you don't want them, go check out the other things there!

Catch up on some recipes!

I went to a scrapbook crop the other day, and had a very nice time!  I went here.  While I was there, I caught up on some of my recipe kits from there.  These are recipes that come in the monthly kits, but I always take the ones that I didn't create, and recreate them.  So here is my version of them.
P.S.  I don't recreate them, because I don't like the originals... I recreate them, to make them my creation!
So, to start, here is Ice Cream Bread.  It really works!  I was cleaning the deep freezer out and had some cheesecake ice cream, with banana and choc chips... I made the bread with it.  It is fun to do, try it!
 Here's Strawberry Soup...
 And Tangerine Bread...
 Blue Cheese Dip...(I love blue cheese, but no one else in the fam does...:(
 Fresh Watermelon Salsa...
 Easy Quiche...
 Cucumber Salsa, and I made this (it's my dad's homemade recipe) to take to the crop.  It so reminds me of home and all the fresh vegetables we used to eat from the garden.  I have a double batch in my fridge right now!  Must caution you though...use Cider Vinegar!!
 And Garlic Soup.. 
Hope you like!

Stamp Class Share

I attended Stamp Class last night.  It is always fun to go there, and then we make the cutest things.  So I am sharing with you the projects we made..
Here is the first one.  I love this stamp set, I tried not to look at it in the mini, but now I've gone and used it.  I'm trying not to get it. :P  She used the embossing template and we did a separate piece for the top of the card.  Really pretty.
 It must be that fall is in the air!  Here is that same stamp set again, different stamps.  I really love the colors.  I like how she always does something with texture.  I always forget to add that myself.
 Then this!!  There isn't anything better!!  We decided that we were going to do 6 by 6's each month and add them to an album, so this is Octobers page.  Dang cute!!  I might have to break down and buy the owl punch to make ghosties!!
Thanks Jeanine for the fun night and the projects!
Hope you like!
